Mei Original and Limited Edition Art
Mei's personality is just like that of any young girl; being bright, sweet, and innocent. Also like other children, she is extremely curious, following the smaller Totoros as soon as she sees them, as well as trying to get the dust creatures to come out of hiding. Upon finding Totoro, she is not the least bit afraid, only laughing happily and answering Totoro's roars and falling asleep on his stomach. She loves playing with her sister and is very eager to explore the house and its surroundings. In the Disney dub, Granny describes her as, "a little ball of energy" as she is racing around the house. She also cares deeply about her family, and becomes sad when she hears her mother still has to stay in the hospital. This emotion causes Mei to start crying, after Satsuki angrily snaps at her for protesting against their mother's homecoming being delayed. At the end of the story, Mei, along with her sister, is overjoyed when her mother returns home.
