>>33096 i agree, but i'd just like to point out that OP asked for "essential" movies, not "best". to me that entails (among other things) "when other people talk about ghibili - what do i have to know to not look like a dumbass?"
so the metric of most voted might be more useful than you give it credit for.
>>33147 your point is valid. Pardon the hipsterism, but i also read "essential" as most germane to discussion, which would include not only the most popular, but also those movies that are formative for the media, thematically exceptional, as well as movies that may have a niche appeal.
as an example, nausicaa and the valley of the wind isnt a ghibli movie as it predates the studio, but nearly everyone in the previous thread included it, due to its heritage and miyazaki's role in it.
