Do you know your Totoros? (Spotted at the Kiddy Land toy store in Harajuku.)
This is called May’s Garden House Restaurant. Located in Bangkok, it is the first officially licensed Totoro themed restaurant in the world.
Did you know this? Maybe you did! It’s called Mei And the Kittenbus. The nearly 14-minute film has never received an official theatrical or home release.
My Neighbor Totoro is a wonderful movie. It came out in 1988, but recently, people on Twitter seem to be noticing one thing: The goat’s teeth are all wrong.
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?
