Never heard of Battle Royale.
Kikujiro was good.
I like studio ghibli, I saw Kiki's delivery service and Spirited Away(and, yes, Totoro) but they weren't in Japanese. Dubbed. Can you get Japanese versions of those animated movies?

From what I know, copies of Ghibli movies marketed in the US have English, Spanish and Japanese audio and subtitles. The copy of "Kiki's Delivery Service" I borrowed was like that.

It was a big success here, mostly because it caused a row by being hyped as 'ultra-violent.' Of course, now that Kill Bill has come out, it seems tame in comparison.

Most DVD versions of Japanese movies will have the option of subtitles or dubbing. Some films released before anime started to become popular, however, don't, like My Neighbor Totoro or Warriors of the Wind.
