We rarely think about the role food plays in our favorite TV shows or movies, but damned if it hasn’t been crucial. But what would Ghostbusters be without Twinkies? Twin Peaks without pie? Goonies without Baby Ruth? Pixar without Pizza Planet? One artist has decided to celebrate this crucial link in a very unique way.

The best days are the days you see someone cosplaying as Kiki. Model is KinokoArthLiddell, photo by Ivan Calderoni.
When I first heard about there being a live action version of Kiki's Delivery Service in the works, I (as well as my fellow Kotaku authors) were more than a bit skeptical about it. However, after seeing it, I am happy to report that it is a perfectly watchable film that stands apart from its world-famous counterpart.
What's the point of making a live-action Kiki's Delivery Service if the cat is going to be CG? No, let me rephrase that. What's the point of making a live-action Kiki's Delivery Service?
Ugh. I know Kiki's Delivery Service is based on a Japanese children's book series, and I know Hayao Miyazaki took a lot of liberties when he made his classic anime movie of it. So maybe this live-action Kiki is going to be more authentic, but there's just no way it'll be as good.
Totally horrible. Awful. Rotten. The latest teaser trailer, which is the first to show footage, is bad.
In Japan, they're making a live-action Kiki's Delivery Service movie. Today in Japan, a photo of Fuka Koshiba, the actress playing Kiki, was released online.
There's a rumor that Kiki's Delivery Service is being turned into a live-action film. The rumor, via Twitch, stated that Ju-On and The Grudge director Shimizu Takashi would be helming the picture. And now, Studio Ghibli has commented on the matter.
This poor, totally adorable animal! Chinese micro-blogger Toshiya86 uploaded a series of "cat cosplay", featuring her feline Guagua and cardboard. This is the result.
Studio Ghibli, the folks behind classics like Howl's Moving Castle, is no stranger to urban legends. There's that one about Totoro being a harbinger of death, for example. Well, have a listen to the latest one that's making its way around the internet in Japan.
Big red bow? Check. Simple dress? Check? Jiji, the cat? Check. All that's missing is a broomstick and a little Yumi Matsutoya.
