Proceeds From Hayao Miyazaki Toy To Benefit Tsunami Relief

Hayao Miyazaki

 

Hayao Miyazaki, the seminal artist and animator behind Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro and Princess Monoke, among others, announced his retirement earlier this year, but his presence will undoubtedly be felt for years to come, as both an icon animation and Japanese culture. Case in point: designer Martin Hsu, in collaboration with Bigshot Toyworks, has created a limited edition Miyazaki figure, with proceeds from the sales going to Karakuwa-Maru, an organization dedicated to rebuilding Karakuwa in Kesennuma City, Japan, following the events of the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

‘The Simpsons’ Studio Ghibli Homage Is Something Special [Video]

The Simpsons Studio Ghibli Homage
FOX

If you thought that Comic Book Guy marrying a mangaka named Kumiko in this Sunday's new The Simpsons episode, "Married to the Blob" was going to be all Hulk Hands and Stan Lee and Harlan Ellison cameos, rest assured that principally western pop culture references aren't going to hog all of the airtime. In a new clip posted by Fox's Animation Domination channel, fans can watch an intoxicated Homer and the father of the bride-to-be stumble through a Studio Ghibli/Hayao Miyazaki-inspired wonderland chock full of homages to Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Castle in the SkyKiki's Delivery Service and more. It may be the best thing you'll see all week... with the full episode probably being the best thing you'll see on Sunday.

Hayao Miyazaki’s Proposed Pippi Longstocking Film Probably Would Have Been Amazing [Art]

Pippi Longstocking Hayao Miyazaki

Here's another project to throw in the "I wish this would have been made" file we all keep in our heads. Back in 1971, legendary animators Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata began production on an animated adaptation of Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking books. After meeting with the animators, Lindgren ultimately decided not to give them permission to produce the film. But now we can all look at some of the watercolor concept art that Miyazaki created, featuring the strongest girl in the world, and wonder what could have been.

MiyazakiSamuraiTop

Hayao Miyazaki can't stop.

The 72-year-old filmmaker and artist announced plans to retire from directing at Studio Ghibli earlier this year, but that isn't keeping him from writing and illustrating a new manga series about samurai in Japan's Warring States era. He hasn't even been paid for the currently unnamed work yet. Japanese TV network NHK snagged some footage of Miyazaki working on the comic, and you can take a look at some screenshots. So far, it seems as rich and detailed as anything he's ever worked on.
