Great sequel to the Ghiblies Episode 1
6 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This animated short is twice as long as the first episode of Ghiblies. It's just like the previous one where it has Anime characters based off of most of the staff members of Studio Ghibli. And some "Japanese slap stick theme" like Episode one as well.

The best part of the whole short is a part involving hot-curry. And an extended version of Nokana's first love.

It's a blind of Digital water color animation and CGI. Which equals to a unique looking anime. It's worth seeing, recommended to those who've seen episode 1.

I give it 8 out of 10 stars. Hope there'll be a Ghiblies episode 3.
