Upcoming Anime

Wired has a nice article on the explosion of anime in the US, and some thoughts on the upcoming anime releases (true release to cineplex theaters and not art houses) called The Giants of Anime are Coming.

After the review of my brother, who saw it in Japan the luck SOB, I really want to see Steamboy. Hayao Miyazaki’s latest film, Howl’s Moving Castle is another one I want to see, along with his earlier stuff that is being released on DVD, although they didn’t mention which films, I’m assuming Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind and Porco Rosso. I’ll probably see Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence as well, although I’m not as interested in that one as I found the first one not as great as people said.

I’m still waiting for Appleseed

  1. I’ve heard that Porco Rosso is one. My Neighbor Tontoro (????) is another. I believe that there are four coming, the same treatment from Disney/Pixar as “Spirited Away”, “Kiki”, “Castle”.

  2. I’m hoping to catch a look at Howl’s Moving Castle when I am over in Japan just before Thanksgiving. I saw the preview when I went to see Steamboy and it looked pretty good. Oh, did I mention that I went on the Studio Ghibli tour? Hahahahaha.

    JP, I have ALL of Miyazaki’s movies on DVD, except for Lupin III. They are region 2, so you gotta have the Sampo player to view them, or if you want, I can RIP them for you to XVID. I’ve got Totoro, Porco Rosso (which is really good), Only Memories, Nausicaa, and all the others…. They’re all good.
