Guys please stop comparing GKids to 4Kids it's NOT the same. They've done all the other amazing Ghibli films okay?

This one came out after Arrietty and I was wondering when it'd get licensed. That's a lot faster than I had expected. I'm happy.

They also got Letters to Momo. I have a local art theater nearby, I hope they choose them to play these movies when they get localized.

Going off of this list they also licensed Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Kiki's Delivery Service, My Neighbour Tortoro, Nausicaa of the Valley Wind, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away, along with some other stuff from Ghibli, and Summer Wars.

All I can think of is 4Kids and that is enough to make me avoid everything.

*Bakugans, I hope you mean. Bakuman is all about a part of Japanese culture.

Nor of Kokurikozaka Kara...
But that's cool American children won't be r4ped by these silly Bakumans and Pokemons that are currently airing!!! Now they'll get some "culture"!
