My Neighbor Totoro

‘My Neighbor Totoro’ is one of the most popular Hayao Miyazaki films.  The movie was released in Japan in 1988.  Wow, it was more than 20 years ago.  But then it was not successful in terms of the box office at all.  Next year it was broadcasted on TV and became very popular.  Now its super natural character ‘Totoro’ is the symbol of STUDIO GHIBLI.  And we can find Totoro everywhere.
