    I've seen/have most of them, and I wouldn't consider any of them bad by a long stretch, but it really annoys me when people put them on a pedestal when there are arguably films that are as good, if not better (taste is subjective after all), than Ghibli films out there.

    As far as animation in general is concerned, how do you compare a film to a series? It's near impossible due to them being two separate products of media, so the only evidence that someone can give as for why one medium is better than the other is personal preference, which isn't really evidence at all.

    Ergo, "you can't really like animation without looking at Ghibli" is a flawed statement to make.

    It's a shame that Ghibli is so expensive... HMV usually have them in there, but £14 for a DVD? Don't think so.
    You can like them or not like them I dont care, but I think its importnat to have seen them if you are looking at animation.

    Why do you need to compare them with tv series? I think you can as pieces of animation or entertainment. I cnat see the difficulty as long as you take into account the differences. Why do you talk about one medium being better thna the other? As I said I think they are a very important part of the pantheon of animation, justa s I think Disney are. Whether they meet with your critical approval or not is neither here nor there.

    Most Ghibli films have been on TV. If you use the internet then you can find the films much cheaper on sites liek ebay or amazon. £5-£10 or theres a collection of 17 films for £30. Didnt realise HMV was still going.

    Why? Would someones' opinion on animation become irrelevant if they haven't seen them? That seems to be what you're implying.

    Because comparisons are important. You can't say "you can't like x without having seen y" if x is an incredibly diverse field that doesn't always exactly match up to the characteristics of [i]y[/[i].

    My critical approval is irrelevant, I was merely responding to your statement of my having missed out if I haven't seen any Ghibli.

    1. No that is soemthing you just invented.
    2.Again something you invented. I never mentioned TV series that is just you. O have no problem with people comparing with TV series as long as its doen rationally.
    3. I think you have missed out if you like animation if you havent looked at Ghibli. They are a very important studio in the pantheon of animation.
    4. No problem having hard copies you just seem to shop at very expensive places. If you wnat to use price as a reason to take against something, then it seems dumb you dont shop where the prices are lower. Your choice.
