    As per usual with Studio Ghibli, you can see great quality and fluidity in the animation, though I’m not sure how interesting this one will be

    • It has a great story and feels properly nostalgic. It’s a young love story.

  • I’d rather die.

  • Any news of it coming over to the UK yet or released on DVD/Blu Ray?
    Quite looking forward to watching it but can’t get out to a cinema here.

    Also a tip for any of you in the UK, Film4 is showing Ghibli movies for the next two weeks. Some have already been on but some are going to be repeated again. Also there’s a few in Japanese with subs.

    • Not yet, I don’t think. Though I don’t particularly follow European releases of Ghibli films. Gkids is working to get this film in US theaters now, and the list has just started to expand. They’ve said that if the word continues to spread, and that if reception remains positive, that they can push the film to more locations.

  • oh man finally its coming to Austin! just need to make sure to get tickets!
