Studio Ghibli

Kanji name: スタジオ・ジブリ
Foundation date: 1985
About:
Famous Japanese animation studio founded by Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata. Ghibli (pronounced jiburi or jee blee) is famous for creating the highest quality Anime, both animation wise and plot wise.
    Ghibli means "hot wind blowing through the Sahara Desert". The name was used for Italian scouting airplanes during World War II. Miyazaki, who loves airplanes (and Italy), named his studio after it.
    Ghibli films are so popular in Japan that they regularly out-perform Disney films at the Japanese box office. Recently Disney signed a deal with Ghibli's Parent company, Tokuma Shoten, for exclusive worldwide distribution rights to many Ghibli films. For more details on Ghibli and the Disney-Tokuma deal, nausicaa.net is the place to look.
