Mononoke Hime, Gedo Senki Recommendations
Gedo Senki, meet your older, smarter sibling, Mononoke Hime. Gedo Seki may be based on the Earthsea novels, but Mononoke is considerably deeper, and every bit as visually and aurally impressive. To the inverse, if you've seen only Mononoke, Gedo Senki is worth watching for those visuals, and because it's Earthsea.
Made by Miyazaki's son and has simlilar humanity and nature theme towards it. I recommend because it doesnt have too in depth characters but how they react and actions require no explanation. As well as many great motifs!
