While lounging in a comfortable chair, a lovely young woman flips through a fashion magazine, goes on a stroll, and obtains a very special item. Soon after, in the skies floats a very special airport – a portable airport! People walk the halls with their luggage, embrace, and ultimately leave for their destinations – including the young woman herself!
In the streets of a city filled with power lines and abandoned buildings, an oddly-shaped being explores and meanders. Meanwhile, a young girl with a penchant for jumping travels to the surface of planets and roads with an inner tube around her waist. Experience the shadows and the whimsy of their misadventures!
The three music videos in the Portable Airport series definitely remind me of Jigen Loop. Both involve a somewhat whimsical, sci fi look at traveling in some way. Mostly though, they just have a very, very similar feel.
In a futuristic city filled with flying cars and a top-notch police force, a winged beauty has been chained up in the depths of a dark room. Her benefactors are none other than two members of law enforcement who decide that she must be set free – their jobs or livelihoods are unimportant compared to their goal. The two men find the heavenly creature and set forth at top speeds to set her free, with others hot on their trail.
Musically, these titles are completely different; On Your Mark is J-rock, while the Portable Airport series is electronica. What they have in common is Ghibli's trademark charm, as Portable Airport and its sequels were made by a subsidiary. Fans will find the innocent characters and upbeat atmospheres familiar.
