Anime Instrumentality: "I’m going to say this right off the bat. I’m a tremendous Ghibli fan. It did take me a while to sample its fine wares, but when I delved into the world of Porco Rosso, of Totoro, of Princess Mononoke’s San and Ashitaka, it was love. And little wonder. Founded in 1985, Studio Ghibli has always been a mainstay of quality and a creative tour de force in the anime world. Of course, one of the main reasons why Ghibli films are so endearing is due to their sumptuous and beautiful soundtracks. The music composers for Studio Ghibli are all masters of their craft and their music has lived on in so many forms."
