Numerous commentators, both in the popular press and in scholarly literature, have recognized the works of Studio Ghibli, and in particular, the films directed by Hayao Miyazaki, as superb contributions not only to anime (Japanese animation), but to cinema in general. As with many other topics in anime/manga studies, however, so far, no attempt has been made to systematically bring together the full range of critical responses to these works.

The goal of this bibliography is to address this shortcoming by presenting a comprehensive listing of English-language academic writing (monographs, chapters in edited essay collections, and articles in peer-reviewed/scholarly journals) on the work of Hayao Miyazak and his colleagues.
