Studio Ghibli Marathon: What Do I Still Need To Watch?

Hey everyone and happy Sunday! I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready to tackle on this new week (:

As I mentioned in my last WWW Wednesday post, I have made it my goal to watch all 22 Studio Ghibli films.

It all started when I got this adorable My Neighbor Totoro backpack for my birthday, even though I had never seen the film. Turns out that most of the Studio Ghibli films are on HBO Max (except for Grave of the Fireflies). Anyways, I decided to watch it, and it made me want to watch ALL the Studio Ghibli films.

I already watched a few Studio Ghibli films before this little marathon which were:

  • Howl’s Moving Castle
  • Spirited Away
  • Princess Mononoke
  • Kiki’s Delivery Service
  • Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

I haven’t re-watched any of these films yet, mostly because I want to focus on the films I haven’t seen yet. Anyways, here is what I have watched so far during the marathon:

  • Castle In The Sky
  • My Neighbor Totoro
  • Porco Rosso
  • Ocean Waves
  • Whisper Of The Heart
  • The Cat Returns
  • Ponyo
  • From Up On Poppy Hill
  • The Wind Rises
  • When Marnie was There

And now, based on process of elimination, this is what I still need to watch:

  • Grave of the Fireflies
  • Only Yesterday
  • Pom Poko
  • My Neighbors The Yamadas
  • Tales From Earthsea
  • The Secret World of Arrietty
  • The Tale of the Princess Kaguya

Overall, out of all 22 Studio Ghibli Films, I have seen 15… not too shabby 👌 (If I do say so myself).


This was a short and sweet kind of post, but it’s nice to have those sometimes! A good way to end the weekend I would say 😉

Anyways, what’s your favorite Studio Ghibli film? Have any suggestions for which film I should watch next? Be sure to leave it in the comments below!

And on that note, I will see you in the next post!

    1. Howl’s Moving Castle is great! Have you also read the book?
      I really like that one, and Princess Mononoke is another favorite of mine (:
