Bringing Back Studio Ghibli

When Marnie Was There (2014)
Currently, the last Studio Ghibli movie.

Hello everyone, if you have followed this film blog since the very beginning, you could have noticed that I have posted much lesser. There are always plans but there is only one me.

Nonetheless, there are already plenty of entries in drafts to be scheduled!! Thanks for being patience (if you are waiting for updates lol) and thanks for reading, you're great!! 

So, just a short update, I am going to continue Studio Ghibli Movie Marathon. I did 15 of 21 anime films from the studio last year and now I am going to complete it with the last six!

This anime movie marathon is quite likely to last about two weeks because aside from being busy with real life pursuits and responsibilities, I do not want to post them in a rush manner.

You can read all existing Studio Ghibli entries here and more about Studio Ghibli here.
All these are/will also be made available on Moviepilot so stay tuned for more!!

You can read it here, but what's unexpected was Katie herself saw the article already in less than 24 hours!! That's too fast, I haven't even share it on my own page and she had already shared it on their page lol!! Seriously, I am truly happy that she has received my well meaning message; let's all wish the best of luck for them!! ♥
