Studio Ghibli to Make Games

Jun 26Capcom: Japanese gaming market in danger of fading (neoseeker.com)
Capcom has been one of biggest (and most successful) proponents of propping up and tapping into "Western" development for projects, even if the "West" is not quite trusted to produce new IP for the publisher these days. This drive to better establish development fronts outside of Japan was deemed very necessary by Capcom, feeling that their native Japanese gaming market is by no means the juggernaut it once was. Indeed, Capcom's head of global research and development (and the force behind the Mega Man, Onimusha and Dead Rising series) Keiji Inafune believes Japanese development is becoming less important to the global gaming scene, and the "West" is more than capable of picking up the slack.

Doraemon (ドラえもん) / Anime / Vol 2

The name "Doraemon" translates roughly to "stray". Unusually, the name "Doraemon" (ドラえもん) is written in a mixture of two Japanese scripts: katakana (ドラ) and hiragana (えもん).
"Dora" is from "dora neko" (stray cat, どら猫), and is a corruption of nora (stray). "Emon" is a component of male given names, such as Goemon, though no longer as popular in the past.
"Dora" is not from dora meaning gong, but due to the homophony, the series puns on this, with Doraemon loving dorayaki.

Nostalgic world of “Spirited Away” will be faded away?

The name of the hot spring “Ginzan”, meaning “Silver Mountain” is derived from the “Nobesawa Ginzan” which had been regarded as one of the largest silver mine during the early Edo period.

Although, the model of “Aburaya” bathhouse in the film “Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi” is not clearly specified, people believe that Notoya-ryokan in Ginzan Onsen is one of them among other existing bathhouses in Japan.
