These are some really interesting articles on how My Neighbor Totoro may be a story about a murdered girl and how Spirited Away may be a depiction of prostitution. 
The analysis of My Neighbor Totoro seems too far-fetched, though I am angry I have never thought of that for Spirited Away before! Duh, Nora. How did I not see that. That film was a 10/10 for me already, but now knowing that a deeper and darker insight exists, I officially bestow my stamp of acknowledgement that it is one of the best piece of cinema ever created. 
That being said, the newest Studio Ghibli film The Secret World of Arrietty is being screened in the United States less than a week from today, woooo!
