Decided to build the second Totoro papercraft I bought while in Japan this time, the Kusakabe sisters and the Cat Bus. I actually wanted to buy two other Totoro ones – one with the famous bus stop scene when Satsuki first meets Totoro and also the one when the family was moving into their new home.
Unfortunately space is limited so I had to be selective ^^;

If you’re an Anime fan that follow the news then I’m sure you’ve no doubt heard of Makoto Shinkai and his recent run away success with Kimi no Na wa, Your Name as it’s shot over the 2 billion Yen record, beating even Ghibli movies and even Harry Potter at the Japanese box offices.
In Your Name, Taki and Mitsuha (two highschool students as usual) finds themselves waking up in the body of the other every so often and their lives become intertwined. Mitsuha is the rural countryside girl, burdened with carrying on the family tradition of crafting and Shinto beliefs. She’s tired of being in the countryside and wishes she was a handsome guy living in Tokyo. Taki becomes exactly that guy who lives in the city and as the story goes on however, they find their lives are tied to much bigger events in time.
Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness tells of a sci-fi world where everything has been digitalised including the looks of clothes, food, buildings and room decorations now replaced by holograms. The public is governed by an AI super computer system known as Sybil. Sybil has cameras everywhere monitoring everyone’s “Psycho-Pass” which is a quotient rating on an individual’s mental health and how likely they’re going to commit a crime. It also pre-determines an individual’s most suitable career path the moment they’re born. Thanks to such a system the public is at peace.
