As somebody who is a lifelong anime junkie, it was hard for me to admit that I never saw Studio Ghibli's films in their entirety. But that all changed when I binged their entire catalog recently.
The beautiful thing about Studio Ghibli films is that they actually covered a wide variety of subgenres of anime that people adore, while also focusing on having a strong female protagonist to lead the film, which is partly why the studio seems to be so revered.
Not to mention, they've got eye-catching animation and heart-tugging soundtracks that give Danny Elfman a run for his money. So without further ado, let's dive into my rankings of all the Studio Ghibli films!
