Cover designs for Studio Ghibli’s anime blu-rays, adopting a simple, yet highly attractive mono color design with silhouetting for the title and lead character/characters. When the first design was released ( for Nausicaa, I believe ), I had assumed Ghibli will only be using this for its older catalogue titles, but it seems they’ve gone ahead and used it for a recent film Karigurashi no Arrietty as well. ( above )
Castle In The Sky ( Laputa )
Whisper Of The Heart ( Mimi o Sumaseba )
Nausicaa ( Kaze no Tani no Nausicaa )
My Neighbour The Yamadas ( Tonari no Yamada-kun )
Arrietty the Borrowers ( Karigurashi no Arriety )
It probably won’t be too hard to imagine what the designs for Mononoke Hime, My Neighbour Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service and Porco Rosso will turn out should they adhere to the same template, but I’m still itching to see them.
Sooner rather than later !
