Even a Ghibli Newbie Can Get Excited About This 8-Bit (and 16-Bit) Version of Princess Mononoke

Before I start this, I’m gonna admit something I’m pretty ashamed of: I have never seen Princess Mononoke.

I know, I know.

I’m just starting my Studio Ghibli education with the help of my very well-versed boyfriend, having just watched and fallen madly in love with My Neighbor Totoro. But even without having seen the full film, I can appreciate this 8-bit (and yes, 16-bit) version of Princess Mononoke from CineFix and their ongoing 8-Bit Cinema series (I’m partial to the Kill Bill one). I don’t know about you, but I’d love the chance to kick ass as Prince Ashitaka.

My question is, what other Studio Ghibli flicks would you like to see get the 8-Bit Cinema treatment? Kiki’s Delivery Service? Porco Rosso? Howl’s Moving Castle? Also, what Ghibli movie should I watch next?
