Ah, I was wondering how she got wolf kids when she had no blood herself. *cough*

Looks like Hosoda finally got his hands on that stuff so many of the anime directors are smoking...

This is like twilight, but she chooses the wolf instead of the sparkling fairy.

I find this incredibly intriguing....probably because it reminds me of Spice and Wolf.
The more I look at that picture on the official website, the more I want to watch.

Wolf Children of the Rain and Snow?

Well, I've liked all his other stuff so far. I'll keep it on the radar.
Ha-cha!

Technically, it's the other way around. Rain and Snow of the Wolf Children.
But since Ame and Yuki are the names of the characters, you can figure out the actual meaning I guess.

FUCK YES YOU ARE THE BEST NEWS EVER
I was like 'uhh okay' at the description at first, but then I read 'The theme of the film is the love between parents and children.'. I need this in my life now ;_;

Could be interesting. I love both Summer Wars and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, so hopefully it's at least half as good.

Sounded like Twilight for a while there, but seeing as it's about her living with two wolf children it actually sounds interesting. And Summer Wars was great, definitely watching this.

The film isn't made yet and I'm already in tears...
On other hand Summer Wars and Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo were great, so this deserves watching.

Awful synopsis. Of course, this is Hosoda we're talking about here. I'm sure it'll be a great movie.

"Bestiality? Jolly Good!"

Tokikake director, so might be worth a look. Though the movie style looks like a huge departure from the manga.
