  1. I left Cagliostro and Panda Kopanda off the list simply because they don’t fit the particular rubric I was working from when ranking the Miyazaki oeuvre: they are not mature works and don’t really even initiate the style that he eventually masters. I would hate to have to stick them at the bottom of the list, because they’re very good—they’re just not in the same league.
    I actually think he remakes Panda Kopanda with Totoro and Ponyo—like it’s a practice run for those films (his two most-perfect films, I’d argue).
    If my daughter made this list, Ponyo would be at the top, then Totoro, and then Panda Kopanda.
