[heads up] Anime films on tv (studio ghibli/miyazaki)

Now Film Four is going on freeview they'll be showing a Studio Ghibli film every night It's good for me as I've only seen one of these although I did see another one about 14 years ago but I won't count that

August
4th Lupin the 3rd: Castle of Cagliostro
5th Kiki's delivery Service
6th Princess Mononoke
7th Laputa: Castle in the Sky
8th My Neighbour Totoro
9th Nausicaa: Valley of the wind
10th Porco Rosso
11th Princess Mononoke
12th My Neighbour Totoro
13th Laputa: Castle in the Sky
14th Kiki's delivery Service
15th Nausicaa: Valley of the wind
16th Porco Rosso
17th Lupin the 3rd: Castle of Cagliostro

Sept
8th Princess Mononoke

Sadly no Spirited Away or Howl's moving castle, not sure if they're subbed or dubbed either

"sort of" Studio Ghibili
13th Grave of the fireflys
15th Grave of the fireflys

I'll take a wild guess and say they'll all be subtitled except Kiki's Delivery Service which will be dubbed

Is that an educated guess or are you picking this out of thin air?

Hailesy, I have mononoke on DVD and I've never been able to follow it, either dubbed or subbed. I know stuff happens but I didn't pick up on a plot. On the contary, Spirited Away flowed like a dream and Howl's did to some degree but was a little more confusing

Kiki's, which is the one I saw on Sky Cinema a few months back, was pretty easy to follow in the first 2/3 but I didn't think much of the film

These are very good films - don't watch them hacked up to fit in ads for washing powder.

Princess Mononoke is truly stunning. Highly recommended. Looking forward to seeing Kiki's Delivery Service as that is supposed to be good.

Thankyou Film 4 for going free and giving me something to watch on TV during an evening. Makes a change from all the soaps/reality crap that litters the schedules.

I've owned Princess Mononoke on DVD (R1) and it is an excellent film. The English version could have been badly dubbed but I think they made a good job of it. If it is the English version you won't be getting short-changed.

I picked up film4 for a month a while ago because they had an anime season, showed far more then than they are going to from the 5th

I watched Nausicaa, My Neighbour Totoro, Porco Rosso & Princess Mononoke including others like Pom Poko, Whipser Of The Heart and the stunning Only Yesterday, they were all in Japanese with english subtitles

Kiki's Dlievery Service however was dubbed

Also check the July highlights teaser playing before movies start on film4, they show clips from the anime movies but the only scene with any dialouge is the kid from Kiki and it's dubbed

My friend says they had a ghibli season a few months ago and all the films were dubbed

Don't ya mean subbed? The only one that was dubbed was Kiki's Delivery Service

I told him what you said and he said they were all dubbed, perhaps you watched different "seasons", it was a Miyazaki season a few months ago. Maybe they have both versions and have aired both.

These all come up as dubbed on Digiguide - are they still worth catching as I am really not a fan of dubbed films?

The Miyazaki dubs are all surprisingly good.....

That said, if you're hardcore about your anime, you probably won't like them. I do, to the point that for most of the Miyazaki films I'd rather watch the dub. And I'm generally a subtitle-kinda-guy...

But if you just fancy trying some Miyazaki to see what all the fuss is about, they're well worth seeing.

While it's always prefable to watch them subbed, I have to say that I can quite easily watch anime films dubbed as the lip movements on animated characters never completely match the words anyway (I find it impossible to watch dubbed "real" films).
It may not be the ideal version to watch but it will give you a good idea of the anime style and you can still enjoy the film.

I agree dubbed Miyasaki films are usually of a very high standard since John Lassetter started pushing them in the States, they now always get top quality voice talent.

Just started digitaping Castle of Cagliostro on Film4 and it's certainly dubbed.

Kinda hope the rest of them are too as I've already got the HK DVDs and would like to have the dubbed version too, so I can give them to my mates 5 year old daughter to watch.

Nooo, why didn't anyone tell me this was on? I've never heard of it so I left it of the list and no one said a word. It would have helped if they'd called it Lupin the 3rd because that would have rung a bell

Good news is that it's repeated on the 17th

Not on your list (as it's not Miyazaki.. and not really a Ghibli film either) but I was just checking the upcoming FilmFour listings on my TiVo and it has down Grave of the Fireflies for 13th and 15th (very early hours of the morning both times).. if they had made the first showing earlier on the evening of the 12th they could've made it the 'classic' double bill of Totoro/Fireflies .
