When Gandalf reads Fate/Stay Night

Sir Ian McKellan needs no introduction. This actor is known to us all as the character Gandalf from Lord of The Rings as well as Magneto from the X-Men movies. Recently, in an interview with the Chinese streaming service Bilibili, the actor was asked to do a reading from Fate/Stay Night. The part Sir Ian read is the full version of the Archer’s incantation. The reading ends with a dramatic flair.

Fate/Stay Night is a visual novel that was adapted into a 24-episode anime by Studio Deen in 2006. It tells the tale of Shirō Emiya, an amateur magus who attends the Homurahara Gakuen Academy in Fuyuki City. The story takes place around his home, which acts as his base of operations in the Holy Grail War.

Studio Ghibli Music Boxes

Music boxes are fascinating inventions. Many of us may know someone with a music box, maybe with a ballerina dancing or a couple in dancing clothes dancing to ‘Fly me To The Moon.’ Imagine someone took this idea and made Studio Ghibli music boxes featuring characters from our favourite movies… Now stop imaging, because it is real.

There are already three music boxes in a series of Studio Ghibli-inspired music boxes. The first one features Lily and Jiji from Kiki’s Delivery service, and their kawaii kittens, playing on a broomstick with a butterfly while the movie’s ending song, “Yasashisa ni tsutsumareta nara,” plays. The second is Ponyo swimming with a few of her siblings with a boat and it features the movie’s theme song “Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea”. Then there is the music box featuring Totoro and his umbrella, a soot spirte and a mini white Totoro enjoying the movie theme song “Tonari no Totoro”.

Here is a video teaser, just to whet your appetite. Please follow our link: http://bit.ly/Studio-Ghibli-Music-Boxes
