It’s been noted that all of Hayao Miyazaki’s movies, in addition to being a feast for the eyes, are positively obsessed with food. There’s always a section in every movie where the characters enjoy a bite to eat, and in every case the food is meticulously observed and rendered. The food can be grand or simple, doesn’t matter, the same careful attention to detail, whether it’s the feast of the king in The Cat Returns or Umi’s cooking in Up on Poppy Hill or the candies in Grave of the Fireflies.

Some dedicated Instagrammer going by the name 01ghibli23 has decided to recreate the meals of Miyazaki’s movies in real life, right down to the careful positioning of the egg on the bread or the pieces of carrot on the plate. In addition to these re-creations, there are also pix of Miyazaki’s posters and Totoro-shaped cookies and stuff like that.

Great, now I want to watch all of Miyazaki’s movies and I’m hungry….. Actually that’s not a bad place to be at all!

Cool shirts wth Hayao Miyazaki storyboard art on them

I wish I understood Japanese, because then I’d have much better shot at navigating a series of pages on Japanese Amazon that purports to offer some really excellent-looking button-down shirts and T-shirts featuring storyboards drawn by the great animation master Hayao Miyazaki, co-founder of Studio Ghibli, a.k.a. the best thing to happen to little kids since the creation of the Muppets

The storyboards all appear to derive from a 1978 TV series called Future Boy Conan (also called Conan, The Boy in Future) that originally aired on Japan’s NHK network.

Future Boy Conan isn’t as well known in the English-speaking world as later Miyazaki masterpieces like Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro, but the series has a special significance as Miyazaki’s directorial debut, on which, Wikipedia states, he “also contributed to character designs and storyboards.” Ahem.

A company called graniph is responsible for the shirts. All of the T-shirts cost 2160 yen (slightly over $20) and the one instance of a button-down shirt I found—I think I like that one the best, actually—costs 4838 yen (slightly over $45).

For English-speakers, it’s often difficult to use the search function and bring up the correct item. We’ve posted pics and links to a good many of these Miyazaki shirts, but we didn’t include all of them. If you want to find them, your best bet is that “Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought” row—if you click around with enough persistence, you will hit all of them, as far as I know. This is a good starting point.
