It takes a lot of work to recreate the architecture from an anime series, but it takes a freakin’ SHIT TON of work to recreate worlds from several Miyazaki films!

    I remember when I was a young lad and my brother and I would stay up all saturday nights to watch Miyazakis films, so this means a lot to me… *snigh* Give me a second… *snigh*

    It's clips like these that make me wish i had the time to do something like this. Or least the motivation…

    Soldier: Now THAT is what I wanna see!

  7. CriticalQuit on May 14th, 2011 7:25 pm

    I don't watch any anime, but…

    I hope this was more than one person. The amount of time it would take a single person to do all this is probably longer than how long Minecraft has been out.

    This…..cannot be described with words! Such detail! The Moving Castle…The Castle In The Sky…and the Bathhouse from Spirited Away! I was moved to…*sniff*….tears it was so beautifal. Congrats to whoever made this work of Minecraft art.

    If someone did this alone,they must be FOREVER ALONE

  10. Sid_Diddly on May 14th, 2011 7:52 pm

    If Heaven exists as I hope it does. This is what it would look like.

  11. NekoKnight on May 14th, 2011 7:55 pm

    Where did he get all the reference material for it!? This would have Miyazaki himself going "Daaaayum, why didn't I think of that?"

  12. shadow649 on May 14th, 2011 7:58 pm

    I liked the cow at 1:30. It was great.

  13. Sceptilianblade on May 14th, 2011 9:01 pm

    *prostrates to Ozworkshop* I am not worthy! I am not worthy!

  14. _XD on May 14th, 2011 9:27 pm

    Am I supposed to make some sort of reference/joke about this?
    Because I don't know about you guys, but this is too beautiful to corru-

  15. 1avidgamer on May 14th, 2011 9:48 pm


    For a damn good reason.

  16. VyseRogueKing on May 14th, 2011 10:08 pm

    I'm guessing the creeper is No Face then?

  17. MurderFish on May 14th, 2011 10:56 pm

    I made an account only to comment on this masterpiece. Words cannot describe it.

    Also to express my regret that they didn't get around to Nausicaa.

  18. Funkalicous on May 14th, 2011 11:12 pm

    Susan, get me my Die and Go to Heaven pants.

    This is a question for Shawn. Why can't we have nice things?

  21. seanhl on May 14th, 2011 11:41 pm

    Then THEY show up, the horde, their phallic faces showing no emotion whatsoever, these devil spawn seemingly immune to guilt or fear charge straight at you ruining the structure of this majesty, and just when you think the unthinkable, they're slowing down, clouds suddenly darken the sky, making your once beautiful world seemingly cry in pain, but it's symbolism is immediately broken by thunder cracks, the loud echoing booms are now foreshadowing what is to become of this once utopian city. The lightning strikes a few yards away, it hits one of the causes of this disaster. At first you think it will at least take one out, so your kingdom could claim to have resisted the onslaught, even if it was fruitless, then you look again, to your horror the phallic monster has seemingly absorbed the power the Greeks believed was held by Zeus, he has become a god. He approaches you and you know their is no bother trying to run, the last thing you hear is the sound of a serpent approaching its next meal…

    …anyways, nice job with the city and all that

  22. smartmonkey on May 14th, 2011 11:41 pm

    If game and art had a child, it would look like this.

  23. TalkingBidoof on May 15th, 2011 1:10 am

    I think I know which one "Castle in the Sky" is.

    Almost one-hundred percent sure.

  24. Ryu_Bonkosi on May 15th, 2011 2:14 am

    Fucking Beautiful. Just fucking beautiful.

  25. bc524 on May 15th, 2011 2:55 am

    Finished watching Howl's Moving Castle.

    words cannot describe how amazing the world made by oz workshop.

  26. HughbertEsq on May 15th, 2011 7:15 am

    I don't even know what any of the actual films and stuff were…
    I feel so worthless…

  27. Gamage on May 15th, 2011 9:46 am

  30. ProfessorLuigi on May 15th, 2011 12:01 pm

    Vice versa? What do you mean? A building comes by a creeper, but the creeper is so beutiful the building turns away?

  31. Inky Blue on May 15th, 2011 12:45 pm

    Wha-what is this strange sensation in my chest? …I…I think my heart is beating again… Oh, thank you! thank you OZ WORKSHOP!

  32. imnutty on May 15th, 2011 1:00 pm

    For porco rosso couldn't you have stuffed a pig in the plane?

  33. Virlunae on May 15th, 2011 1:38 pm

    No words… can't describe it… they should have sent a poet…

  34. HughbertEsq on May 15th, 2011 4:16 pm

    We have discovered not only the Ultimate in Eye-Bleach, but one of the few reliable means of achieving total and insoluble Peace and Harmony through the work of a video-game.
    Our work is over, for now…

  35. bawkbawkboo1 on May 15th, 2011 5:12 pm

    Does anyone have a link to the full version of the music that starts around 1:14? I know what movie it's from but I can't find the music.

  36. thepj on May 15th, 2011 5:44 pm

    "A thing of beauty is a joy for- SSSSSSSSSSSsssssssssss."

    And that is why creepers suck and this rules

  37. Skandradron on May 15th, 2011 10:09 pm

    I know it is completely beside the point of the video but… 2:05 *Ahem* And on some clear nights, young trainer, you can see a few of the legendary Sky Wailords searching endlessly for their lost love known to us as 'Skitty', and they will continue searching till the end of time…

  38. tstriker1 on May 16th, 2011 9:54 am

    I'm now very sad because the site for downloading this map…is in Korean TT__TT

  39. Wilton14 on May 30th, 2011 2:20 am

    Miyazaki probably couldn't even do this himself.
