I just signed up today. It's super last minute but I couldn't miss this. Kiki's Delivery Service is one of my favorite movies of all time. I have to say, I did list The Cat Returns in my favorite movies, even if it doesn't technically count. It's not my fault, the Baron is just too cool :O
Miyazaki did do art direction for The Cat Returns so I think it kind of counts. You are correct, the Baron is just so cool! Very dashing!
I've been stacking up all my Miyazaki movies (which is a lot now) so I am prepared to watch them when I get my partner! So super excited!
