Studio Gibli films, like Howl's Moving Castle, are what got me into anime along with the anime and manga called Fruits Basket. It helped that I found that Howl's Moving Castle was also based off of a previous work, the first book in the Howl's Moving Castle trilogy by Dyanne Waynne Jones.
For those looking at how I rate anime-- It might not be all that accurate. It depends on how I'm feeling after watching it and then how I feel looking back at it, making it subject to change. I do not know how much everyone puts stock in people's individual ratings, but for mine... If the anime has below a 3.5 rating, it likely is not going to change in rating and people might do best not to watch things below that rating anyway.
Finished watching 100 anime 1/2/2018! Yay! I've watched many more than this, but not completed them... Time to work towards 200 anime completed!
