Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft – No. 19 Laputa

Been a while since I last built a Ghibli Minituart papercraft. This time, I'll be tackling a one star Laputa one model number 19 so it should be quicker. Then again, the first Totoro one was a one star but it still took many hours to put together so wasn't expecting this to be any easier although it did look simpler. There are quite a few...


Makoto Shinkai Walker Book

It's been a while since Makoto Shinkai released his first art book, "A Sky Longing for Memories" (which you can get an English copy of by Vertical Comics). Now he's released a new one at around the same time as his latest youth movie, "Your Name" and it's a B2 sized, 160 page book subtitled "Walker: Hikari no Kiseki [Trails of Light]". The...


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...


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 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...


Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo Blu-ray Collector's Edition... With English Subtitles!

Happy New Year, readers! Feels like it's been a while since my last post but very busy with my full time job these days. You will find me Tweeting more on Twitter since it's quick and short compared to lengthy articles like these. But anyway... Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo is about a young girl named Asuna creates a small radio and goes up to a cliff...


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...
