I awoke to a white iGoogle page this morning instead of my awesome Studio Ghibli theme. There was a message in its place that read “Your theme has been removed due to a complaint”. Yet I have seen no such “complaints” on my end. Yet all these studio ghibli themes remain? Also all those themes I just linked to don’t change the image at all.

So sadly it’s now gone, if you try to go to the theme directory where it was it’s just a white page. Not sure who complained but thanks to them it’s now gone. I had 100,000+ people using the theme and had from what I remember over 200+ ratings and average was 4 1/2 stars out of 5 max plus one of the themes with the most comments too. So a LOT of people are going to be disappointed and angry including myself.

Originally I just created this for myself and my wife to use. I was happy to see that so many others enjoyed it as well. Thanks for all your support in the past. Here was the description of the theme for old times sake ..

This dynamic anime theme changes 14 times throughout the day. Also each image has a small white Totoro hidden in it, think of it like a Easter Egg Hunt! Thank you Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli for creating these wonderful characters and worlds for us to enjoy! Here are the characters in this theme (in order):

Tanuki – Pom Poko
Kiki – Kiki’s Delivery Service
Porco Rosso
Sophie and Howl – Howl’s Moving Castle
Seita and Setsuko – Grave of the Fireflies
Kodama – Princess Mononoke
Laputa Robot Soldier – Laputa: Castle in the Sky
Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea
Nausicaa – Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
No Face – Spirited Away
Cat Bus – My Neighbor Totor
Soot Sprites – Spirited Away
Totoro – My Neighbor Totoro
The Baron and Muta – The Cat Returns

Save Totoro’s forest! It would be sad to see this forest fade away :( http://totoroforestproject.org
