My Neighbour Totoro

Usually very weird and often quite wonderful, this is the tale of two young girls who've moved into a new area and befriend a local woodland spirit named Totoro. Sub-plots involve their mother convalescing in hospital and their father's efforts to balance work with looking after them, and the local neighbours (the human ones, that is).

Part of the Studio Ghibli collection and directed by the incomparable Hayao Miyazaki, I didn't quite love it as much as Spirited Away, but it's certainly a wonderful anime and I'd recommend it to everyone who likes the genre.
