As for the trailer... did I really hear right that the fantasy land is called "Agharta"?

Hi the Emh ... I think I posted this the other day. Sunami-san at CoMixWave films sent me the link.

It looks awesome!

One of the things that really caught my eye when Shinkai-san allowed me to glance through the sketches for the new film was the picture of the (for lack of a better word) lizard-like creature. I saw that it was part of the latest trailer so I feel it's ok to bring up now.

In past Shinkai films, like Voices .., the aliens were without much of a defined form. I'm sure that was due to ease of animation probably as much as intent. I was impressed with how much detail was in the lizard creatures and I was very curious as to how they were going to be used and how they fit into the story. You can't really infer too much from the trailer ... looks like one of the lizard creatures swallows the main characters at one point.

Anyway ... just one of those things that kind of catches your eye when flipping through drawings ,... person, person, cat, scenery ... alien lizard-like creature Smile

Hi all, i noticed a few months ago that the date 2011/05/07 cropped up on the main site for Hoshi wo ou kodomo.
Is that the launch date?...... because if so thats today ^_^

Yep .. you're correct. I checked ANN and didn't see any reviews or notice about the premier. The film was scheduled to be premiered this weekend. I don't think there was a change due to any of the issues that were occurring in Japan. I sent a Tweet and an email to Shinkai-san and some of the folks I know at CoMixWave to see how it went.

We'll see what happens.

man, thats the lowest key movie launch ever >_>

Still hopefully there was more publicity over in japan than we saw online and it all goes well for them. Now comes the slow and painful part of waiting until WE can see it. Rolling Eyes

Yeah ... I still haven't seen a review on ANN. I can't believe they've got not non-Japanese translations on their site either Sad

I was falling asleep last week and my wife showed me an article on her iphone from one of the sights she was reading ... In my foggy state I realized ... "Hey that's Shinkai".

here's the link ...

http://sankei.jp.msn.com/entertai...s/110513/ent11051307350003-n1.htm

Still have not seen a review of the film nor have I heard anything back from my emails to CoMixWave. Shinkai seems to be doing a lot of Tweeting these days so .. maybe they feel they're getting the word out that way.

I was pretty surprised at the lack of advertising for this. Maybe once it is ready for release to other countries they'll do more.

There is one review in English... not too "professional" though.

I've also read some user comments at some japanese movie site. They were pretty mixed - many saying that the movie is too ghibli-like and unoriginal (I guess that can be expected if they expected another Byousoku). But nobody complains about music and everyone praises the visual aspect.

So I'm really interested in this.
