I take it you mean the theory about
Totoro being a god of death and Satsuki and Mei being thought to have died etc? I read up on it just now and it does seem slightly credible, but honestly I think the general concept is all too far-fetched for me personally to accept, especially when the creatures look so happy and the film seems so light-hearted.
That's the one I mean
I still have Nausicaa and Only Yesterday recorded from Easter, so hoping I can get round to watching those soon.
Any of you seen the news about Ghibli moving into live-action...?
My friend went over to Tokyo recently and saw the Ghibli museum - so jealous!
