Comparable to Disney, Japan’s Ghibli has become a “legend” in the animation field when producing many impressive works, even winning an Oscar. Because he loves the Ghibli “big family” too much, Artbreeder has used AI (artificial intelligence) technology to design and simulate the characters into real human versions.
Let’s see what Ghibli characters look like when they turn into real people!
The first is Chihiro of the Soul Land. With her chubby face and rosy cheeks, the “real person” Chihiro could be considered a good fit.
On the other hand, the Haku guy from the Land of Souls looks much more attractive in the AI version. In particular, his “difficult” hair in the animation has been changed more or less.
Sheeta in Castle in the Sky seems to have black eyes like most other Ghibli characters, but her eyes are actually silver. This has been subtly demonstrated in the AI version.
The male lead Pazu of Castle in the Sky looks much more attractive with messy hair, flying eyes and mischievous features in the AI version.
The little witch Kiki is said to be of Asian origin, so the “real person” version of this popular Ghibli character has an attractive Western beauty.
Tombo of Kiki’s Delivery Service is definitely an “underground” beauty in the real life version when behind the glasses is a very standard, attractive beauty.
The cute boy Sosuke in the movie Ponyo lost his chubby appearance in the real human version, but still very much like an adventurous boy.
The Ghibli girl Ponyo is actually not easy to design due to her pink hair and unique face. That’s why her AI version is not exactly the same, but still very cute.
Because of the shape based on the Ainu tribe of Japan, the character Ashitaka in Princess Mononoke has a unique appearance.
Princess Mononoke, on the other hand, has the most beautiful beauty among the Ghibli female characters, but it is not easy to accurately portray her image.
Finally, there is Ghibli’s “icon” handsome – Howl. Like Mononoke, emulating Howl’s decades-long charisma is extremely difficult, and this is the “trying hard” version.
