Porco Rosso ★★★★

It's been a bit since I've seen The Castle of Cagliostro but both it and this are proof that pulp adventure pastiche is a great counterpoint to Miyazaki's sentimentality. Everything about this world and it's design is a marvel and that this doesn't end with Porco turning back into a human (or even bothering to explain how he was cursed in the first place) was a great surprise.
