My Minecraft Neighbor Totoro


I was talking with a friend this weekend about Minecraft, specifically how it scares the hell out of me. Seeing all these people make these elaborate, massive works is impressive in the jillions of Minecraft videos is impressive, but I can’t imagine how much time it takes. And as a guy who is often too lazy to play videogames, that single-mindedness both astounds and frightens me. Which means this video is pretty much the most impressive, frightening thing I’ve ever seen.

Yes, it’s most of the worlds of Studio Ghibli films recreated in stunning detail and accuracy in Minecraft. There’s the castles from Spirited Away, Laputa, and Howl’s Moving Castle, Porco Rosso’s cave hangar, a flying, umbrella-wielding Totoro and much, much more. It is, frankly, astounding. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go back to bed and cry for a little bit. (Via Kotaku)
