Adolescence comedy taking place in 1963. Komatsuzaki Umi is a high school girl. She takes care of her brother and sister and manages a western-style lodge next to the sea instead of her mother, who is always away from home. It's about her happy and busy school life with Kazama Shun, a member of the newspaper club, and Mizunuma Shiro, the president of the student council.

Let's hope Goro can pull it off Ghibli style this time, or rather, I'll look forward to it nonetheless :)

If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

Hopefully, this will be a better film than the previous but if his film can be on par with Hayao's, then I would show respect for him. If it's worse than the previous film, Well, there's always another chance i Guess but his rep will just start decreasing.

Uh, no... that's a quite disturbing thought. We all know what kind of works does Kitoh produce.

I am looking forward to see another Ghibli work.

I am expecting great things. I quite liked Tales of Earthsea even though it was clear that Goro was completely inexperienced and really needed his father's help.

This time around, he is working with his father, so I am not expecting another Pom Poko or Ponyo (AKA a bad film).

Plus, his artwork is better than anyone else currently at Ghibli.

I'm more worried about Goro's ability to live up to our expectations.....

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

I'm so going to watch this thing. Not because it's Ghibli or because Hayao Miyazaki loved this Manga enough to animate it, no, it's because of Goro only. I'm very interested in how much he can mature doing this and how he'll fight to throw away the imagine of "Hayao's son".
I'll stay tuned.

dont think the majority of people realize that they love ghibli due to hayao and that he isnt directing this..... Well I am interested to see if Goro will take up his father's mantle and lead Ghibli into another era. Cause unfortunately Hayao cant be around forever making fabulous movies ;_;

*fingers crossed*

Waaah! Ghibli! I may as well give it ago...who knows what it'll be like, since its shoujo and all..

But Goro just keeps trying. I guess he wants to carry on the Miyazaki legacy. If this film is a success, it would do his father proud.

The poster looks really nice. The plot seems somewhat nice as well. Also, it's Ghibli, so I'll be sure to watch this sooner or later.

I wish they'd do an original screenplay instead of an adapted manga, as that is where Studio Ghibli shines.

Miyazaki Goro? Yeah, no. I won't watch any movie he's breathed on after the abomination that was Tales from Earthsea. Even if he has improved, it won't be nearly enough to make a semi-decent movie.

Some part of me believes Hayao Miyazaki actually hates this manga. It's the only reason I can imagine him letting his son direct it. Or he's gone senile. Either way. In general Ghibli kind of fails at adaptations, but maybe this being a manga instead of a foreign novel gives it some hope.

I'll watch this since it's ghibli of course, not expecting much though (since it's goro).

Miyazaki Hayao loves the manga.


OMG, need to read it now! (I didn't even knew that hayao actually read manga's)

The manga looks hard to find though. It's not even on MAL's database. Or am I missing something?

I'm looking forward to the release of this since it comes out on my birthday! xD Too bad I can't be in Japan though... ==" Hope it's not too disappointing.. Since I haven't seen tales from earthsea yet, I don't know what Goro's work is like in comparison to Hayaos'..but I'm hoping it will be good.. It IS Ghibli after all ^^

LOL. You know, it's hard to write manga when you didn't read it xD
And also i don't think that ghibli is bad with manga adaptations, "whisper of the heart" is one of my favourites.
And also i think "pom poko" is definetly one of their best.
About this movie: i'm looking forward to it, epsecially because Hayao Miyazaki is the one who written script here.

definitely a MUST watch.

but what happened to The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter? I've seen it on wiki on one of ghibli's future films for a long time, yet they announced this movie instead. I feel like the bamboo cutter was there even before Borrowers Arrietty.
