    Default Meanings behind the Magic: My Neighbor Totoro

    Most of Studio Ghibli's movies have some big message hidden in them, usually about preserving mother nature or not polluting or something. Well, a little while ago I watched My Neighbor Totoro with some friends. We couldn't figure out what the message behind it was, so we looked it up, and every source said it was about a rape and murder case from the 60s. It did have some strong evidence in its favor for the claim, but I still don't buy it. So, what do all of you think is the message behind My Neighbor Totoro?

    :3 Its my favourite movie. And I really don't think it involves a rape and murder case... I see it as a harmless movie that involves two young children interacting with the spirits of the forest and befriending them. o_o I won't buy that crap that movies like that is something bad or vulgar of any sort. Maybe my statement is bias because I love that movie so much and Totoro is love. <3;

    It's clearly a movie about the possible horrors of the misuse of genetic engineering.

    Exhibit A: Children being kidnapped by a feral Cat-Bear-Owl



    Exhibit B: Think of what a horrible life this monstrosity leads.

    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    I have always thought that My Neighbor Totoro had no deep underlining message to it that it was just a pleasant and fun movie.

    I don't think it has any message besides "I'm going to be cute :3"
