Heads up! This blog post hasn't been updated in over 2 years. CodePen is an ever changing place, so if this post references features, you're probably better off checking the docs. Get in touch with support if you have further questions.
Have you noticed Adam Kuhn's Studio Ghibli-inspired Pens in the picks lately? He's creating a series of them! His work sent me on a search for even more Pens that capture that Miyazaki magic. Let me show you a few of my favorites.
You'll see Adam's latest, "Catbus", in the Picks today
Susan Lin's "Animated Pixel Chibi Totoro Walkcycle" looks so huggable even in pixelated form
Johan Mouchet's "Pure CSS cat animation", inspired by Jiji from Kiki's Delivery Service
Kirsten Rauffer's lovely "Kiki's Delivery Service - Pure CSS"
Jack Parsons' "CSS Kodama"
I've gathered these and more, including Nathan Gordon's legendary "Howl's Moving Castle" and Lloyd Fenton's magnificent "Princess Mononoke Homage", in my collection Studio Ghibli. Did I miss any? Show 'em off in the comments!
