Mei Kusakabe [Totoro]
One day, Mei sees two white, rabbit-like ears in the grass. She follows them under the house where she discovers two of the creatures, who lead her through some bushes, and to a large tree. She meets a larger version of the same kind of spirit, which identifies itself by a series of roars she interprets as "Totoro".
I know not everything is 100% perfect, but I'm limited to what Gaia has to offer.
