A live action version of Kiki’s Delivery Service has been announced. The film will be directed by Juon (a.k.a. The Grugde) director Takashi Shimizu. Kiki will be portrayed by Fuka Koshiba, a 16 year old ice skater turned actress.
The film won’t necessarily be a remake of Miyazaki’s animated classic, but will instead be a new adaptation based on the original novel by Japanese author Eiko Kadono.
Finally finished compiling some nice photos of all of these figures~
Each measures roughly 3-4 cm/1-1.5 in. small enough to fit in your hand. They make nice desk companions~
Please shoot me an email at WinnieBeatles(at)gmail(dot)com with the subject “Hatofigure Commission” if you are interested in commissioning me to make you one. I am charging $25 each (not including shipping).
I will not start fulfilling commissions (or taking money for them) until I return to my home in mid-February. I will fulfill as many orders as I can before I leave for Kyoto in April.
In the meantime, feel free to email me to reserve a spot and I’ll let you know when I’m ready to start.
Thanks to everybirdy who has shown interest in my little Hatofigures so far!
In the last week I was in Japan, my family and I went to Kobe and visited two Hatoful locations. The second place we went to was the Torimi Cafe. It was a must-visit for me, and was well worth the trek.
The cafe is just as adorable as the game depicts. My family and I were welcomed with an adorable reservation sign on one of the table closest to the bird cage. I actually got to see Azami’s face claim while I was there, which was great since she’s one of my favorite characters in the game.
The food was delicious, and adorable. We all got a little birdie bread of our own, and I couldn’t say no to one of the birdifully artsy parfaits. I chose the java sparrow one of course. Black sesame ice cream with lots of fruit and other tasty treats hidden under it.
I bought I few souvenirs including a pen, a postcard, a sticker sheet and Damu’s first volume of the Okosan volume. And before we left, the cafe owner gave us some adorable bird-shaped cookies.
I can’t thank Moa enough for being so helpful and patient with directions for both the cafe and the zoo and reserving us a spot at Torimi. It was a wonderful day I will never forget it!
I dedicate my Azami Koshiba cosplay to the wonderful @moa810. I was really ashamed of how bad and rushed it looked when I first wore it in C82, but your kind words meant so much for me and I wanted to remake to make it look as good as possible. Thank you ^^
