I went back and checked the numbers:

Nausicaa: -1 (+ from LantisEscudo, Zsinj / - from Kirin, Con_Chair, Imura)
Totoro: -3 (- from Yennichan, Zsinj, yfewsy)
Kiki: +1 (+ from Yennichan, Imura / - from Zsinj)
Porco: +1 (+ from Hug Me!)
Mononoke: +0 (+ from Zsinj / - from pettruchio)
Spririted: +1 (+ from yfewsy)
Howl's: +1 (+ from Con_Chair, pettruchio / - from LantisEscudo)
Cat Returns: +0 (+ from Kirin / - from Hug Me!)
No votes on Laputa or Whisper

So the updated totals are:

(-1)Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
(+0)Laputa: Castle in the Sky
(-3)My Neighbor Totoro
(+1)Kiki's Delivery Service
(+1)Porco Rosso
(+0)Princess Mononoke
(+1)Spirited Away
(+1)Howl's Moving Castle
(+0)Whisper of the Heart
(+0)The Cat Returns

Now, then, to continue:

(-1)Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
(+0)Laputa: Castle in the Sky
(-4)My Neighbor Totoro
(+2)Kiki's Delivery Service
(+1)Porco Rosso
(+0)Princess Mononoke
(+1)Spirited Away
(+1)Howl's Moving Castle
(+0)Whisper of the Heart
(+0)The Cat Returns

+1 to Kiki's Delivery Service
My second-favorite Ghibli movie, I love this growing-up story. It's a little fluffy, but the characters are so human I can't help but love it.

-1 to Totoro
Speaking of fluff, Totoro is nothing but. It's cute and pretty, but there's such a lack of any substance, it falls way down my list of favorites. I'll still watch it if I just want some mindless fun, though.

Thank you LantisEscudo for fixing the poll! :D I have been wanting to do that for a couple days now but I just haven't had the time to spare. :(

On the plus side, because I have no time it means that a lot of work on this year's Bakuretsu Con is getting done. Today I ordered the spiffy trophies we are awarding in the cosplay and for the art show. I've lined up good support from Media Blasters today and we now have bag stuffers and lots of screeners. 8)

My other tasks are too nurmerous to list but rest assured this will be the best Bakuretsu Con yet!

And now, on with the Hayao Miyazaki & Studio Ghibli Film Poll!!

+1 Nausicaä: It's kinda Miyazaki's magnum opus. I mean, he so wanted to do Nausicaä that he wrote the beginning of the manga just to get support for it. Atop that, though it does lack its full effectiveness--being a story half-told in the movie--the movie still inspires subtle emotion in a way few of Miyazaki's other works do. By this, I mean that Nausicaä really touches on the fact that no person is truly evil, and that even the enemy has their good points.

-1 Howl's: Just on a technical aspect. It's the first Miyazaki that isn't entirely hand-drawn. While that by no means makes it really inferior, it just lacks a certain ... élan? that the other films have. Just in that until Howl's the Miyazaki films were close to the last well known fully drawn films. Maybe that's no reason to smack the film down, but I'm a nostalgic by-blow, so to speak.

Honorable mention: Totoro will always hold a special place in my heart for a plethora of reasons, but--for brevity--I'll name three.
First, it's a World War II movie that's uplifting. I mean, it ran opposite Grave of the Fireflies, one of the saddest anime I've ever seen. It showed in subtle ways that life moves on, and we can still be happy despite our hardships.
Second, it's nice to see a movie where there's a (for all intents and purposes) single dad caring for his kids. Fathers often get stigmatized as being the less caring of the parents. And while the mother is seen as loving though bed-ridden, the father is seen as genuinely affectionate. I don't really know why, but that's a thing I find endearing about this film.
Third, my little sister's first exposure to anime was Totoro--in German--watched daily at the nanny's for a good part of the first year of her life. The fact that a Japanese film could be seen in America after being translated into German tickles me to no end.
This is a post. You may think it is more than a post, but actually, it is just a post.

Actually, both Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away used some CG. It's subtle, but it's definitely there (the houses behind Ashitaka as he's walking toward the fight between Eboshi and San spring to mind).

You're right, Lantis. I guess I'm off there. It does CG more heavily than the others though.

Sorry for disseminating false information.
