Ghibli Teases Kokuriko-Zaka Kara on Japanese TV
Studio Ghibli teased more footage from the upcoming Kokuriko-Zaka Kara this week on Japanese network NTV. The program snuck a peek inside the studio, spying a few images of character designs and background paintings. Everything looks terrific, very much in the Ghibli tradition. Goro Miyazaki tried top copy his father's style with his first directoral feature, Tales From Earthsea. Now, it seems he is following Isao Takahata's neo-realism. We will no doubt see more at the Kara press conference on March 28.
T. Ishikawa just so happened to have a camera handy, and snapped these photos of the television set. Yes, it's pretty old fashioned, but it works.
