Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft – No. 11 Spirited Away

For our Ghibli Miniatuart papercraft this time we'll be doing No. 11, a Spirited Away one which also happens to be a two star one again like the Kiki's Delivery Service I put together the last time. Spirited Away just happens to be one of my top Ghibili movies thanks to how exotic the art is and I'm sure most would agree it was quite moving how...


Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft – No. 9 Kiki's Delivery Service

This is the second papercraft I did rated at 2 stars complexity. Maybe that's why it took an extra 2 hours to do compared to the Totoro one totaling 8 hours. No powdery or sponge bits to mess with this time. Decided to start off with the shelves since they looked to be the easiest. They were all large pieces while most of the other parts where...


Putting Together a Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft - No. 5 Totoro

When I bought a bunch of Ghibli papercrafts back from my trip to Japan I wasn't really expecting them to be hard to put together. I saw the difficulty rating that ranged from one to three stars and this was one star so I thought, "How hard could it be?" If I read the bottom of the box I probably would have known better ^^; So, I decided to put this...


Scotland Loves Animation 2012 - Nerawareta Gakuen, Wolf Children ::

I always end up thinking "Anime" instead of "Animation" but then I just noticed this K-ON poster is written the same too! I guess "Anime" does mean animation in French but I still prefer it means Japanese animation when used in English. So this year's Scotland Loves Animation 2012, the movies were... Both cinemas: Glasgow Film...


5 Centimetres Per Second Novel English Translation Completed

Finally got round to picking up the half done translation. Pretty hard to believe it's been two years since then. Time flies, eh? If I wasn't a software developer myself it would have been quite tricky translating all the parts about programming. Other than the finished translation, you'll also find I've added Shinkai's Twitter feed...


Scotland Loves Animation 2011 - Hotarubi no Mori e Producer Q & A ::

It was the second year running for "Scotland Loves Animation" at Glasgow Film Theatre last weekend. Last year they had Evangelion 2.0 and Trigun. This year we seem to have a common theme of mythical beings. Apparently Letter to Momo won't be screening in Japan until 2012, Spring so we got to see it first here (as well as those in...


Makoto Shinkai To Appear at Comic World in Hong Kong ::

It appears Makoto Shinkai has been busy traveling around the world as his latest movie, "Children Who Chase Voices from Deep Below" is being screened in various countries including Mainland China, Korea and now this month in Hong Kong. Comix Wave is really pushing his works to a wider international scale. Don't miss this opportunity...


Steins;Gate Official Materials Artbook, Q&A

I've become such a fan of Steins;Gate's story after playing the game I decided I had to find the "official materials" artbook. Unfortunately, since the book was published for the original Xbox360 game 2 years ago and Huke's artwork is so popular, it seems to be sold out everywhere. Fortunately, Amazon JP managed to restock the 2300 Yen...
