Satsuki Kusakabe (草壁サツキ)A 10-year-old girl. Satsuki is Mei's older sister. Satsuki is the traditional name of the fifth month of the Japanese calendar, the equivalent of the English May.
As they wait, Mei eventually falls asleep on Satsuki's back and Totoro appears beside them, allowing Satsuki to see him for the first time. He only has a leaf on his head for protection against the rain, so Satsuki offers him the umbrella she had taken along for her father. In return he gives her a bundle of nuts and seeds.
My Neighbor Totoro (Tonari no Totoro) is a childhood classic for most anime fans, featuring mysterious creatures adapted from Japanese folklore. The Cat Bus is one such creature, whose sunny demeanor and friendly antics make him a family favorite that is certainly worth learning more about!
Many fans prefer to keep discussions about anime and religion separate. When they do, they miss out on a chance to understand both anime and various religions on a deeper level.
