Perhaps you are talking about people outside Japan because in Japan a lot of people have watched it (estimated to be 3.5 million people) and is the 6th highest grossing movie in Japan in 2012.


That's right, I'm talking about people on MAL specifically


It is too bad that Funimation is so slow to take advantage of their rights acquisitions. They bought the rights to Ookami but have sat on it thus far and not even released it subbed for Elite subscribers as far as I know. Too bad also that a subbed film is only considered appropriate for film festivals and art house theatres. Dubbing takes time...

Hours after the Japan BD release it will be ripped and torrented. Since this one already has subs you won't even need to watch it raw first...

I will enjoy my BD with commentary track.

I saw it at a film festival and have pre-ordered the Blu-Ray Disc for Ookami. Two discs, booklet, commentary thankfully some extras. Even English subs, probably the same ones I saw at the film festival.

I actually preferred Nijirio Hotaru - Eien no Natsuyasumi - as my pick for anime movie of the year and bought the DVD; too bad there was no BD release. And too bad the DVD is simply a box, a cover and a disc. No extras or booklet or anything at all! Guess I'm spoiled by what you get in the individual BDs for TV series nowadays but not since VHS tapes have I received so little in a box!

Wow for a change Japan has an award set for shows that I actually appear deserving of a closer look. Usually it's just whatever shows were smash hits with the otaku crowd.
What other award sets you have in mind that has "just whatever shows were smash hits with the otaku crowd"? It is not as if there are many award sets for anime in Japan.

Also, to get the facts clear, this is the 16th Japan Media Arts Awards so it has been going on since late 1990s. It is not something new but I guess for many in the west it looks like it is something new and comes up "for a change".

What a tease, basically nothing of those has been subbed yet :/
Well, I was looking forward to all those movies anyway, now I'm looking forward to them even more.

Ookami and Asura were subbed for the film festivals. Ookami import BD will have subs. Asura loses something in translation, the Japanese dialogue is great.

Chihayafuru anime is subbed on Crunchyroll, not sure if the manga is licensed, probably not.

Dec 13, 2012 4:26 PM by hpulley

Chihayafuru! :D

But there are some titles on the lists that make me raise my eyebrow. o.o

Dec 13, 2012 3:50 PM by Mirorin

There are a lot of titles I didnt know. From manga list I only know Chihayafuru and 3gatsu no lion but I havent read that mangas.

Very well deserved. Truly one of the best masterpieces in the last 2 decades.
Is there any chance of a third season? I still haven't watched the second one because of dat art quality drop, but probably will eventually.

Maybe I should just read manga. Decisions, decisions.

Indeed. Turned Lupin into a film noire-ish show, and did it amazingly well.

Dec 13, 2012 1:07 PM by BatoKusanagi

Oh wow, I wouldn't have expected Asura to win this price. Anyhow, definitely adding Guskou Budori no Denki to my watchlist.
