Ever since Japan was placed under a state of emergency to stop the spread of Corona Virus, people around the country have been spending more time indoors, working and socializing from home itself.
In order to help people stay inside during this time of Home Quarantine, many big organizations have come through with free anime, manga, movies, etc. Joining them is Studio Ghibli which have offered free backgrounds and wallpapers download for video calls.
They first released a series of wallpapers to be used as backgrounds for video conference calls on 13 April, featuring gorgeous scenes from famous films like Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Spirited Away.
They released another set of pictures a week later from movies like Kiki’s Delivery Service and My Neighbour Totoro, and another extra set was released the next week.
However, all good things must come to an end, and that’s the case today as Studio Ghibli has just released its final set of free backgrounds and Wallpapers.
On 7 May, backgrounds from the following four Ghibli works were made available:
- Only Yesterday
- On Your Mark
- Ghiblies (episode 2)
- Tales of Earthsea
And on 18 May, the final set was released, consisting of scenes from:
- Ocean Waves
- My Neighbours the Yamadas
- The Wind Rises
- The Red Turtle
The final eight wallpapers (pictured above) are from slightly more unpopular Ghibli releases, which may not be as well-known as some of the studio’s big box office hits, but they’re just as beautiful in their artistry.
Head over to the official Ghibli site to download the backgrounds and wallpapers while they’re still available.
