Comic Book Guy

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

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.
