Great news. I haven't heard of Mizuki-sensei until a couple of years ago, when I stumbled upon his biography, and I was really impressed. He is an exceptional person. I'm really looking forward to the movie.

Yup I'll give it a try. It's always an interesting subject, even if the realization somehow turns wrong, you know you can't go wrong with the atmosphere and background tales.

It sounds interesting. I have always wanted to hear the folklore and traditions behind the Yokai, so I will probably end up watching it, assuming that is what the movie is about.
