So after the release of Spirited Away on Bluray my attention has been focused on Ghibli for the past little bit. It got me thinking, sure I've seen pretty much every Ghibli film, but what about the works that predated the studio's founding. So much like the Lupin watch order spreadsheet below, I've created a Ghibli Films Tracker sheet. It lists the early works of both Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, the two founding members of Studio Ghibli. (There are more but as far as the creative-types go it was these two)
The sheet lists both of their early works, then the feature films of Studio Ghibli, then the shorts of Studio Ghibli. They are listed by the years they were released. You may not need the whole sheet to fit your needs, but do with it what you will. Download the file here.
Believe it or not, I've never actually seen any Lupin besides The Castle of Cagliostro. Well, with Spring season over and my Yawara days coming to an end, I decided it was about time to pick up another classic. With so many specials and movies, however, it's nigh impossible to figure out how to watch it.
I'm told that for the most part it doesn't matter what order you watch, but I have OCD or something and it matters greatly to me. So I made a spreadsheet, a mini-MAL for just Lupin if you will, that shows the correct order by air date, gives you the option to track your episodes, and even colors it as "Watching" or "Finished".
Green for finished, blue for watching. It gets a bit confusing around S2 and S3. The first number is the total episodes before a movie airs, while the second is the total number of the entire series. Clicking the "up" button will update both at once.
Hope this helps some people. If you have any suggestions for changes, or if you've made any yourself, leave a comment.
