I totally agree that Princess Mononoke is the best Miyazaki movie, but I don't think I'll be watchin' it on Cartoon Network, considering it'll probably be edited to the max and full of lousy commercials... I'd rather rent the movie (or buy it...).

True. And, I have seen all the ones that will be aired on CN when they had on TCM, non-cut, commercial-free, and with the choice of in Japanese, or with English dub, because they aired one each on the same night.
BUT, let me put it this way... To those who haven't them, it's a great chance to see if you'd like that particular movie, because it's on TV, and it's free!!
Each anime is similar, yet different, some you may find too cute, or too slow, so, before you spend money on renting or buying, you can check out and see if like any of those movies. smile.gif

Personally, I like Nausica, Princess Monooke, and Spirited Away the best. happy.gif
(Oh, but Totoro is cute, too!! tongue.gif )

I've only seen Spirited Away. I'm sure all the others are great! I'm going to buy Howls Moving Castle tommorow or Sunday. I'm really sad that I didn't catch the others on TCM. I guess I'll have to rely on Cartoon Network. XD (( Then again, like Lone Wolf said, they might be edited too much... xp ))

I love all of Miyazaki´s work. I love the way how he can make a kids´ movie and make an adult like it and enjoy it as well. I´ve seen Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Kiki´s Delivery Service and My Neighbor Totoro. I don´t know why but I loved Spirited Away. It´s on my favorite movie list. I recommend any Studio Ghibli work or Miyazaki´s.

The first one to be aired for "Month of Miyazaki on CN" is award winning "Spirited Away", tomorow, Saturday March 18, 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm (U.S. Eastern Time.)
(Check your local listings to be sure.)
It's one of Hayao Miyazaki's best anime movies, and if you haven't seen it before, I can highly recommend watching this one!! smile.gif

I watched "A month of Miyazaki" on TCM a while back, and I enjoyd every one they showed, especially spirited away.
I still think Metropolis is the best I've seen, but as far as directors go Miyazaki is the best!
I'm sure they won't do a whole lot of editing ( forcontent anyway, maybe for time) in any of Miyazaki's movies on CN, but the commercials will probably get annoying after a while.

^^ I agree. I also think that they probably do not edit the content that much, but the commercials on CN might get pretty annoying, especially during the Prime-time hours, I think.
(If possible, TiVo or VCR it, and skip the commercials?? biggrin.gif )
Oh, and I love Metropolis!! Its a classic, IMO. happy.gif

Has anyone else noticed that the main male and female characters in these films always seem to look the same. I think in like three of the four that CN is showing, they look like San and Ashitaka from Princess Mononoke.
Just out of the blue guys, Grave of the Fireflies is a great anime movie too. Don't expect any action though, it's quite depressing, but never the less an awesome film. I don't know if it was done by Miyazaki though.

@Tombow:

One of the reasons I think it won't be edited that much is because they aired Metropolis on CN not too long ago, I was scared that they would butcher it myself, but they really didn't edit much at all out (but, alas, the commercial breaks were all too often.)

^^ I know, I know, I was pleasantly surprized to see CN did fairly good job airing Metropolis. happy.gif

Yap, they have the same features, and look very similar. And, many other similarities also, like, often having one grandma type active lady, or "flying" often being the recurring theme, and so on. Gets a little repetitive. I still like them, tho. happy.gif

And, about Grave of the Fireflies (also known as Tombstone for Fireflies) is also from the Studio Ghibli, and directed by one of it's main directors, Isao Takahata. (He was the producer for "Nausicaä" and "Laputa" and others, and also directed "Only Yesterday", "Pom Poko", and also "My Neighbors the Yamadas" which is more of a manga comic, and more.)
Anyway, that's the WWII movie, right?? Some people think it's too depressing, but I think it's a very good movie. smile.gif

I haven't heard of it. BTW, WWII movie you say? Is the setting Japan during WWII? That would be... umm...interesting for an American I guess.
I often wonder why more Anime isn't set during that time period(with Japan as setting) to be honest, it certainly left enough of an impact on Japan.

^ Yeah, about a story of two young kids, an older bother and a younger sister. Their mom dies, and dad is far away, fighting WWII in the Navy, and they can't get along with the relatives they were placed with, so they decide to leave and live on their own.
It's a somber film, but very nicely done, IMO. This one, from what I heard, was released as the accompanying double feature film to My Neighbor Totoro in Japan. smile.gif

Oh, and the Japanese title is "Hotaru no Haka (meaning Grave of the Fireflies )." happy.gif

I was going to rent Howl's Moving Castle last Friday, so my friend and I could watch it together, but alas, she came down with some illness... Now I have t' wait another week! *sighs*
