A Studio Ghibli short that makes fun of themselves.
7 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This aired on Japan TV back in 2000. Ghiblies is mainly about charactered versions of the staff members of Studio Ghibli doing their normal routine, life, and making the next animated film.

This one does introductions to a few of the characters who resemble the employees you'd find at Studio Ghibli. Each one of them either has a secret past, bad luck, or acting stranger than fiction itself. Throughout the short you'll get plenty of laughs as this contains Japanese office jokes in a whole different way.

I really liked the way they thought this short up. Especially the same water color animation used in "My Neighbors the Yamadas". The cool thing about it is it has one part hinting the start of the production of the Oscar Nominated "Spirited Away".

It's not too hard in finding this piece of Ghibli's talent. You're able to obtain off the internet. Cause that's how I found it. If you like Ghiblies: Episode 1, then check out the more well known Episode 2. See my review for my opinion on it.
