"Bestiality? Jolly Good!"

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

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

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.

Falling in love with a werewolf.. sounds kinda intriguing.

I guess Hana liked the doggy's style...
Anyway, I'll check it out. Might be good.

think i might give it a try

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.

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

Hosoda Mamoru *A* My favorite. Will definitely look forward to.

Dec 13, 2011 5:58 AM by Kurimu-chan

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 ;_;

Wolf Children of the Rain and Snow?

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.

Wolf Children of the Rain and Snow?

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

Dec 13, 2011 2:02 AM by LightningRamiel

Sounds alright, I will give this a try for sure. xD
