I watched Princess Mononoke again with a bunch of friends. Majorly good movie,

No one is entirely evil, or good. Not the animal gods, not the humans- They're all

'Mononoke' means Vengeful Spirits, which is why San gets referred to as 'Princess
For those who are still not convinced to watch it:
THERE ARE GIANT WOLVES.
