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

20th June 2013 Update: The site has now been taken down but you may still read the translations and the rest of the site content in PDF here. 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...
