For the past couple of years, British studio Fire Panda have been working on something that might just sell a few VR headsets to those not currently interested in games: small virtual tours through some of Studio Ghibli’s most famous movies.
This is the Flash Step Dance Crew, performing a killer Studio Ghibli homage at Anime Boston last month.
Perhaps, you’ve heard the scary theory that Totoro is really the god of death. Studio Ghibli might deny that (ha!), but there’s no denying that this recut trailer sure is creepy.
All you need are some paper cut-outs, maybe some googly eyes, and a cat. Don’t forget the cat! That’s very important.
Let's be honest. There really is no better way to spruce up Skyrim than the Totoro bus stop.
Just look at how it breathes. And listen to how it snores. And opens its mouth.
This summer, there's a new Studio Ghibli movie. According to one reported insider, it could be Ghibli's last.
Last year's news that Studio Ghibli mastermind and all around amazing person Hayao Miyazaki was retiring hit us all pretty hard here at Kotaku. If you're like us—i.e., still grieving in between bouts of playing Ni No Kuni—then I suggest you feast your eyes on these charming pixellated recreations of iconic moments…
Would it be a better world if Hayao Miyazaki classics like My Neighbour Totoro or Princess Mononoke were drawn and told in the style of Dragon Ball Z or Sailor Moon? I don't think so, but it'd be a much funnier alternate reality.
I don't ever recall having the desire to nuzzle a bus. Maybe the Catbus from My Neighbor Totoro? This brand new "Duffy Bus" from Tokyo Disney Resort certainly invites snuggles. Come here, bus. How about a hug?
Remember when famed animator Hayao Miyazaki retired? No, not that time. When he retired this past September. Well, don't be surprised if he comes out of retirement. Studio Ghibli's Isao Takahata won't be.
One of the most memorable scenes in My Neighbor Totoro is the one at the bus stop. Wouldn't it be great to visit a real Totoro bus stop? Good news. You can.
If you've seen the Studio Ghibli anime, you are certainly familiar with Totoro. Did you know there are several trees in Japan that resemble the iconic character?
And not just any old noodles, but with soba (buckwheat) noodles. But why make Totoro out of noodles?
Have a cat? Like My Neighbor Totoro? Want to turn your pet into the titular character? Here's how:
Did you know that you can make art by using tea? If you're Dara Gold, artist and illustrator from Toronto, you can use tea stains to make pretty awesome art, too.
Digital artist Little Miss Paintbrush drew and transformed all the major Studio Ghibli characters into the most charming form possible. They look spectacular together.
My Neighbor Totoro. Howl's Moving Castle. Princess Mononoke. These aren't only classics, they are stunning. Studio Ghibli is responsible for some of the most loved and best looking films in the past few decades. It's no accident why.
