Studio Ghibli has spent years making a name for itself as a legendary animation houseproducing renowned films such as Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, and much more. As 2022 said goodbye to Halloween, the prolific studio revealed that it’s gone all-in when it comes to spooky season, handing out treats at Trick or Treaters. While Ghibli hasn’t created a Halloween-centric movie in his past, he certainly created some stunning characters and environments in his time.
Halloween 2022 was a big time for anime in general, with celebrities such as Alicia Keys and Megan Thee Stallion wearing costumes that were ripped straight from Dragon Ball Super and my hero academia respectively. Keys disguised as the god of destruction Beerus, the feline deity who has played a major role in the series’ sequel since dragonball returned with brand new battles for anime fans. Megan disguised as Mirko the Rabbit Hero from the Shonen series created by Kohei Horikoshi, with the main hero playing an important role in the anime adaptation’s sixth season. With Mirko sacrificing a limb in an attempt to bring down the high-end Nomu and keep Shigaraki from waking up, it’s the perfect time to honor the anime superstar.
