Check out the trailer for Studio Ghibli’s ‘From Up on Poppy Hill’

Set in Yokohama in 1963, as Japan is picking itself up from the devastation of World War II and preparing to host the 1964 Olympics, the story centers on Umi and Shun, two high school kids caught up in the changing times. But a buried secret from their past emerges to cast a shadow on the future and pull them apart. With its rich color palette, stunning exteriors, sun-drenched gardens, bustling cityscapes and painterly detail, From Up on Poppy Hill provides a pure, sincere, and nuanced evocation of the past, and marks yet another creative triumph for Studio Ghibli.

Princess Mononoke coming to the stage next year

Studio Ghibli’s got a lot of great movies in its resume, but one of its most beloved, and one of the movies that introduced a lot of Americans to contemporary Japanese anime, Princess Mononoke, is going to be turned into a theater production. The show opens next April in London, but I hope it tours in the US as well.

Check out the new trailer for The Secret World of Arrietty

Studio Ghibli’s new movie, The Secret World of Arrietty is their take on The Borrowers by Mary Norton looks pretty fucking good. It was already released in Japan last year and France this past summer, but won’t come to the US until February of 2012.

If any French or Japanese IHCers have seen it, I’m curious to know what you think, and maybe you could do a review.

Brand new trailer for Ni no Kuni looks just as fucking fantastic as the first

Studio Ghibli released a brand new trailer for its upcoming video game/movie/thing, Ni no Kuni (The Queen of White Sacred Ash) and while I don’t know Japanese, I know a really fucking good looking RPG.

Studio Ghibli has its own brand of beer and yes, the label is amazing
I don’t know about the taste, but the label for Kaze no Tani, brewed by Studio Ghibli and sold in their on-site museum is fucking amazing. The name is in reference to the Japanese title of Hayao Miyazaki’s 1984 anime Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (“Kaze no Tani no Naushika”). In the middle, that’s Nausicaä, the movie’s heroine.

That Studio Ghibli game, Ni No Kuni: The White Sacred Ash is coming to America

We showed a trailer for Ni No Kuni before, possibly this same one, but I never actually expected that it would be coming to North American shores, but it is. The game is the first developed by Studio Ghibli, and is hoping to have the same sort of feel of a Studio Ghibli movie, only on an interactive level. 

Ni No Kuni is coming to the PS3 some time next year.

Scenes and trailers from Studio Ghibli movies re-created in Minecraft

The modders at Oz Workshop have achieved something remarkable: recreated something in Minecraft that is not mildly amusing, but genuinely awe-inspiring. They’ve produced in block form the most famous locations (and in some cases characters) from Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli films, like Castle in the Sky, Totoro and Howl’s Moving Castle.
