The Enchanted City certainly represents one of the highlights of the artistic expression of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, which can still inspire fans today for its magical imagery. An enthusiast then decided to combine this universe, so original, with another work characterized by an incredible world-building.

Even though the story of Chihiro is not devoid of moments of drama or despair, the tones Studio Ghibli employs to tell it resemble those of a fairy tale while attempting to convey a message of positivity and hope. Others are the storytelling methods used by Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions to tell The Dangerous Journey of Sam Porter Bridgesa man on whose shoulders the reunification of the United Cities of America rests in Death Stranding.

Although the two works are fundamentally different, artist ARTazi has attempted to bring them together in the beautiful yet disturbing illustration below. Chihiro wears a pink jumpsuit and the device that connects her to the BB has been replaced with what appears to be a Kodama and surrounded by several Susuwatari. Behind him, he finds himself in the role of one of the stranded creatures of the universe dreamed up by Kojima the Faceless, identified by a golden mask.

Let us know what you think of this crossover between The Enchanted City and Death Stranding in the comments. Finally we leave you with the first images of the spectacular Ghibli Park.
