There’s no doubt about it: the real world is crap right now. All the more reason to indulge in some flights of fancy, which will be all the easier for you right now if you happen to be an Amazon Prime member.

Amazon’s offering a deal on most of Studio Ghibli’s multiformat library for Prime members, marking titles down to $12.99. This includes classics like My Neighbor Totoro, The Wind Rises, Castle in the Sky, The Secret World of Arietty, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Nausicaa: Valley of the Wind.

If your only knowledge of Studio Ghibli is the Oscar-winning Spirited Away, we can’t encourage you enough to check out these other films. Disney chose to distribute them in the U.S. for a reason — and the depth of magic and beauty in the studio’s work is unrivaled.
