I watched “My Neighbor Totoro” together with my mother. I was interested in reaction of mom, because she didn’t watch anime much. My mother liked how elaborate this anime was. She noticed that when Mei started crying, she walked slowly. Mom said “Kids are the same everywhere. While crying, they walk slowly.” Also, she was surprised by the fact that there is no evil character. She is used to Western cartoons. Western cartoons usually have a clear moral lesson. Nevertheless, mother liked “Totoro” 😊
