We watched it in Japanese, with English subtitles. I hate dubbing.
What a beautiful movie. It was every story I made up in my head as a child wrapped into one charming tale. Everything I wanted to experience - magic, dragons, evil henchmen, spirits, worlds where anything could happen at anytime - was present.
I love mystical adventures and fantasy tales. I like to be lifted out of this world and into another, to witness all the things that I thought could really happen when I was six or seven.
Spirited Away had all of that. I think we are going to watch it again. Right now.
