Expecting this to be Q1 (and anyone deviating from the top answer to write away any shot of winning)

And I'd bet on this being Q9

So yes, the big landslide to start with, and going by the results, definitely the only question where there was always a clear winner. While Disney and Pixar are lauded everywhere, I feel Studio Ghibli really does deserve more love. Their wonderful animes combine sublime animation, fantasy, human themes and a more dark and daring tone that is often not explored in children's films. The results are often a blissful and beautiful movie experience.

Spirited Away, being their highest grossing and largely seen as part of what made anime film cross over was perhaps an obvious choice, it sums up the best Ghibli can do - beautiful, adventurous, entertaining and thought provoking journey that rightfully stands as one of the all time animation greats heart.gif Alas, some poor hens missed the trick here the other answers given were tear jerker, Grave of the Fireflies, another fantasy epic, Howl's Moving Castle and one of their more recent successes, Ponyo.

I do not know if Dobbo was being serious here but HOW DARE YOU put this studio on scale with a film that is fairly good at best pirate.gif

and on that note I need to go for dinner oops, this will hopefully resume around 8!

I hope people didn't go for Sidney from Scream as it's kind of INCORRECT, since Monica survives all the films too.

So much goodness. 'Grave of the Fireflies' is my personal favourite but had to go with arguably one of the greatest animated films OF ALL TIME. An absolute belter of a film <3

Gale Weathers is an iconic bitch

but tbh she was more of a supporting character.

Oh hun, I'm hoping that 'incorrect' ends up being a THEME this round

She steals the show. She IS Scream 2.

Also, her being supporting doesn't make a different, Sid still wasn't the ‘final girl’
