I loved both Spirited Away and Laputa (Castle in the Sky). I saw Spirited
Away twice at cinema and immediately after the first viewing ordered the
region 3 (HongKong) dvd of it. I think my nest R3 buy will be My neighbour
(friend?) Totoro (can't remember it's English name at the moment) which I
originally saw several years ago when it was shown on Finnish tv. It's a
really beautiful children's film which adults can enjoy as well. I'm also
really looking forward to Miyazaki's version of Howl's Moving Castle.
