If you like good animation, but don't know Studio Ghibli, you've missed out.

If you've heard of it I have a feeling there are very few who haven't. You're very conventional.

I first watched Totoro almost twenty years ago. And you only hear of them now? Wow, git bizi, man, your beeeehind.

What are you talking about? When did I say I had only heard of it now? Everyone has seen that movie. It's one, along a few others like Akira or Ghost in the Shell, that are used as an intro to anime. It's the bare minimum.

Take it as a rule of thumb - if you've seen, read it, listened to it - then everyone has.

Although you like to think of yourself as an individualist, you're not. You're not a bohemian either.

I'm not much into anime but I too have seen My Neighbor Totoro as well as Akira which came out in the same year I think. I probably didn't seem them till 1990 or 1991. Still, I do think those are pretty well known. I know that Comic Book Guy types who are really into anime would scoff and say "Everyone's heard of _________, have you heard of _____________? Didn't think so!"

I didn't see Totoro until about 2002. However it seems that the new 2-disc special edition on Amazon isn't worth it. Based on several 1-star reviews there's no Japanese audio for the thing.

I'm disappointed to not yet see blu-ray versions. They are so visually rich, and animation, whether flat or CGI, tends to look great in HD. Even the durn Simpsons looks good in HD.
