BEAUTIFUL: One Japanese fan's tribute to Ghibli animation
A new video of a Ghibli fan's animated flip book is taking off on the Internet. Accompanied by a beautiful piano score, the short video shows some of the most popular Ghibli characters in action. What makes the video particularly impressive is that the YouTube user who posted and made the video is Mana Kikuti, who is apparently still in high school!
The video may be a tribute to Hayao Miyazaki, co-founder of Studio Ghibli, who recently announced his retirement. The video, which was uploaded last month, already has almost 130,000 views with YouTube commenters raving about the work. See it for yourself:
Beautiful characters in motion!
