THREE DAYS IN THE MAKING AND NOW THIS BABY IS FINAL;U COMPLETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jesus... This thing was a monster! And to think that it all started because I couldn't find enough Ghibli fan videos on YouTube... that being - couldn't find any at all! Ah... c'est sad.
SO - YEARS after this meme started, I finally worked my lazy bones into completing one!
For those who don't know - this is a parody of the famous Durarara ending "Trust me" (where all the characters were linked in such a fashion as to create one awesome tower of awesomeness) featuring Studio Ghibli characters - more specifically characters from Studio Ghibli movies directed by Miyazaki (because were they any more characters in here I know I would have passed out ten more times more then I already have).
And so we have, in an almost chronological order, the following:
Laputa: Castle in the Sky (1986) - featuring Sheeta and Pazu
My Neighbor Totoro (1988) - featuring Satsuki, Mei, Totoro and ... dirt spirits
Kiki's Delivery Service (1989) - featuring Kiki
Porco Rosso (1992) - featuring Porco Rosso
Spirited Away (2001) featuring Chihiro and Haku- (switched places with: )
Princess Mononoke (1997) - feauturing Ashitaka, Sen and tree spirits
Howl's Moving Castle (2004) - featuring Howl and Sophie (how I love 'em) and last but not least
Ponyo (2008) - featuring Ponyo, her papa Fujimoto and some of her sisters
!ALTHOUGH the 1984 film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is often considered a Studio Ghibli film, it was produced and released before the 1985 founding of the studio. So that is why we have no Nausicaä.
And so here we have it! The whole crew (more or less). The hardest ones for me to get right were most certainly Pazu and Satsuki - donno why! - and Fujimoto was the one I had most fun with
I just love his design! And I still can't believed I survived after a pen encounter with Howl's flamboyant clothes...
And if some things things seem familiar while looking at them, I will add only this: ... I HAVE NEVER USED SO MUCH CHARACTER REFERENCES IN MY LIFE!!!!!!!
