Studio Ghibli is constantly praised for the efforts it exerts in creating scrumptious-looking animated dishes, and its newest “Yummy Glass Mini Plates” celebrate the food in many of its films.
Offered in 18 different designs, the plates feature pop art-colored motifs from titles like Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, The Cat Returns, Ponyo, Howl’s Moving Castle, Porco Rosso, Pom Poko, Arrietty, Whisper of the Heart, From Up on Poppy Hill and, as a special gift, Panda! Go Panda!, a film directed by the late Isao Takahata and written by Hayao Miyazaki in 1972 — 13 years before they officially launched Studio Ghibli. All the plates highlight the dishes and the scenes that have impacted pop culture today, including the bacon and eggs Markl devours, the onigiri rice ball Haku offers Chihiro and Ponyo’s ham ramen.
The Studio Ghibli Yummy Glass Mini Plates is available at all Donguri Kyowakoku stores with a price tag of ¥990 JPY (approximately $9 USD) each.
Elsewhere in design, Hasbro Marvel Legends is introducing the Iron Man nano gauntlet replica.
