This was WEIRD with monsters and magic but good. The art was fantastic and the story was interesting. Very much like Spirited Away. I liked the love interest but it was very minimal. Kinda sad at times too

BUT don't think i would watch it again. MAYBE i will watch the eng dub out of curiosity...but thats about it :/

Random question. Why is it translated as "children who chase lost voices" when "hoshi" means star in Japanese? And where are they getting the "lost" from? Sorry, this is just me being picky about translations.


That's called "lost in translation"



Or it could be that "Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below" is the full official English name of the movie, as per the Japanese website, and Sentai found the "lost" part from there.

If it is slated for Bluray then it will be dubbed.

Their DVD only releases are subbed only unless stated otherwise like Hakuouki.

I thought Sentai dubbed everything. Either way, I wanted to see this, so this makes me happy.


They used to back when they were ADV. Now they sub niche titles while dubbing bigger titles.
