Studio Ghibli Animate Second Short Based on Old Japanese Scroll

A second commercial based on the Choju Jinbutsu Giga scrolls has been animated by Studio Ghibli for the Marubeni Shin Denryoku energy company.

As explained in the previous post about the first animated commercial, the animation is based on  a collection of four Japanese picture scrolls created in the 12th and 13th centuries. They have a focus on the natural world and mainly depict animals interacting with each other. Much like the previous animation, this one is also 30 seconds long and focuses on a frog and a rabbit helping each other. While the first commercial focused on the two meeting and helping one another during a rainstorm, the second shows the two crossing a river and having a little bit of trouble in the process.
