It is a shame in 2013 to have such a design.

Both movies actually sound really really cool and I can't wait. I think it's about time I start watching the rest of the Ghibli films I haven't seen there are still like 10 of them. Perhaps I'll have a sort of marathon in April and watch 1 movie per day.

actually, im more exited about the fact that Takahata is making a new film than anything else. The man is unique, is such a fortune that he and Miyazaki are still making movies, and great movies!

Awesome! Can't wait for their release. :D Two Studio Ghibli movies in one year...I'm in.

Sounds promising. Both of the stories are masterpieces that could be enjoyable for mature audience. Just hope Miyazaki and Takahata will not make them girlish/childish, but maybe it's hopeless in light of their target audience.
