Studio Ghibli Fan Gives Chainsaw Man, Jujutsu Kaisen A Howl’s Moving Castle Makeover

A fan artist recreates one of the most whimsical scenes in Howl’s Moving Castle with the adorable pets of Chainsaw Man and Jujutsu Kaisen.


An artist has one of the most iconic scenes from Howl’s moving castle by the animal mascot of Chainsaw man and Jujitsu Kaisen in this charming fan art.


Twitter artist dmsco1803 shared their illustrated rendition of the Studio Ghibli movie, in which Pochita (Chainsaw man) in the role of Sophie Hatter and Satonyan (Jujitsu Kaisen) – Satoru Gojo’s fan-made cat character – as the handsome wizard Howl Jenkins Pendragon. The scene in question is when Howl teaches Sophie how to walk on air during a car chase at the beginning of the movie. Not only do the cute animal characters fit their respective roles really well, but the artwork itself looks and feels like a real screenshot from Howl’s moving castle. This illustration isn’t the only Studio Ghibli crossover fan art dmsco1803 has created. The artist previously brought the two characters together in the 2001 film Spiritually gone and added them (and others) to a scene from the 1994 film POM Pom.

Anime inspires art

Chainsaw man and Jujitsu Kaisen are two of the hottest anime properties right now, both aimed at older demographics. The juxtaposition between these two grown-up leaning anime series and the whimsical wonder of Howl’s moving castle make for an entertaining crossover. Other fan artists have done the same. An artist using SmileGHorse’s Twitter handle drew a ravishing Chainsaw man X Scooby-Doo crossover that won Cartoon Network’s endorsement. Another fan has the Chainsaw man opening into the loving world of Crossing animals.

For the first opening theme for Chainsaw man was released, a fan made one himself for the series with the second opening theme Jujitsu Kaisen. The impressive result trades the cast of Jujitsu Kaisen for chainsaw men, while also changing certain scenes to reflect the story of the latter. Who-ya’s “Vivid Vice” performs the second anime opening for Jujitsu Kaisen. The actual opening theme for Chainsaw man“KICK BACK” by Kenshi Yonezu, is filled with countless movie references from directors like Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers (Joel Daniel Coen and Ethan Jesse Coen).
