The two clips are from the same part of “Mimi wo Sumaseba (Whisper of the Heart)“, one of those Ghibli films that doesn’t feel cutoff, like those adapted from longer series of novels (I’m looking at you, “Howl no Ugoku Shiro” and “Gedo Senki“). The source material is short enough so that the movie covers it all without feeling disjointed from the myriad plotlines going in many directions (“Majo no Takkyubin“, you, too.).



For the second video, why couldn’t they just use the original lyrics of the song? Does the Denver estate have that tight control over that song?

Original song:

For Some in Japan, Home Is a Tiny Plastic Bunk

Yeah, those cheap capsule hostels? The housing of choice for an increasingly hard up population.

And the worst of it is, it’s only the predecessor to the cubicle living we always said we’ll have in the future.

In dystopic futures.
