If you have a good grasp of the messages in the films, then I guess it's just a matter of taste and there's very little for me to add. I can attempt to answer your questions about the films though, but I'm not an expert and it's just my opinion. How does Chihiro know her pig parents weren't there wh...

Too many weird things happen in Spirited and Howl's .... James, I think there might be some underlining meanings you are missing that tie many of these strange occurrences together in the both these films. The stories make more sense once you understand what they are. Otherwise, it's like you are t...

I'm also looking forward to this film. I had my doubts from the description of the movie and the fact that most of the film is suppose to take place at sea, but hey, it's Miyazaki. You have to give him the benefit of the doubt. Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle were nonsense movies to you or wh...

I have The Art of My Neighbor Totoro, but I've been eyeballing the Spirited Away book for some time now. A nice hard cover edition. :) Many of the storyboards included in The Art of My Neighbor Totoro were also done in pencil and watercolor. It puts my finished work to shame.

I read the same thing. It's sad that it only opened in one theater in Tokyo. Since movies are a little pricey in Japan, I'm sure it didn't help matters much, but maybe the award was able to open some eyes. I would love to see this movie in theater, but I doubt they will play it anywhere near Georgia...

Ear infections are awful, but a spinning world is always a good thing, right? Always keeping things moving. Nice illo, btw, Pascal. The love birds make a nice touch.

I have little experience with clothing companies, but I think it's best to speak with them to see what rights to your work they expect to take. Then figure out if it's worth it to you. If you are unsure about your rights, you can always check out the Copyright Office and view information there. Also...

A good story is always worth experiencing, no matter what format it's in. :wink:

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

Has anyone seen The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (Toki wo kakeru shôjo) yet? I know it's been making it's run through Film Festivals this past year, but I've missed it and I've been told it's a pretty good film. Can anyone tell me the US release date? Synopsis: When 17-year-old Makoto Konno gains the...

I'm sort of a late bloomer. I guess I was exposed to some really bad anime early on and it turned me off to the genre. Kazu's Copper (which I really miss, btw, if you are reading this Kazu) introduced me to Miyazaki fills and now I find myself trying to play catch up. Maybe, Minini, you could sugges...

Chad, have you seen this film yet? I'm a little curious about how well it turned out. I just finished watching Hoshi no koe (The Voices of a Distant Star) and it's already one of my favorite animated films. Well worth owning on DVD. It's even more impressive that Makoto Shinkai made the film on his ...
