    World's End drops 'My Neighbor KILAS' Art Toy on 25th Feb


    Illustration design and concept by KILAS. 
    Hand sculpted and painting by Bagoy of Yeah-Limited (Indonesia). 



    The appeal of Miyazaki’s films is that they can be enjoyed equally by adults and children. While children enjoy the innocence and naivety of the films, adults can interpret their meanings in an ominous sense. My Neighbor Totoro is such a film where the lines of life and death are blurred, giving us the ability to transcend perceptions of what is real and unreal, good and evil. 

    It is granted that Totoro is a mystical creature that only Mei and Satsuki can see. His presence is linked to the trauma of their sick mother who is on death’s door. Some can go as far to say that Totoro is death itself, alleviating the girls to the fact that they will lose their mother and maybe even themselves in this unforgiving world. 



    KILAS gives Totoro a skull and scythe in response to this theory, Totoro is now able to embody his true self, the grim reaper. 

    World's End has two colour variants; natural and white. It also acts as an incense holder for offerings to the lords of fire and brimstone. 
    This toy is part of a print series World's End has launched as their homage to anime and manga.
