Based on characters created by Studio Ghibli's producer, Toshio Suzuki, GHIBLIES EPISODE 2 is a portrait of 'ordinary people' using a sample of 'ordinary' Studio Ghibli Employees - a slice of everyday life in Japan. The film contains two short episodes, "Curry Rice" and "First Love", interspersed with four very short sequences, "Lunch", "Dance", "Beauty and the Beast" and "Epilogue".
In "Curry Rice", three characters visit a famous but strange curry shop for a simple lunch that turns into a fierce "spicy curry eating competition".
In "First Love", one of the GHIBLIES characters remembers his first encounter with love as a schoolboy.
