I am definitely watching this.

After Wolf Children (Which I just watched like 4 days ago), he's sticking to the winning formula again, but this time an action movie!

HOLY SHIT FUCK YES

Cool, Mamoru will be directing this film, his first movie in 3 years. I am definitely looking forward to see how this one will turn out to be.

Has it really been three years? I remember watching Ookami Kodomo about two years ago...but at any rate, it does feel like it's been awhile, so definitely looking forward to this ^^ Does sound more like a Summer Wars than the other two slice of life.


Pretty sure. The last movie he directed was Ookami Kodomo in 2012 and since this one will be coming out in Summer of 2015, it would be. Apparently, tagline indicates 'action flick' so I would expect more action than Ookami Kodomo.

Every single movie this man makes, save for The Girl Who Leapt Through Time has kemono characters...
