What's up with Crunchyroll's new owner? Why does Sony get so weird when it comes to their anime DVD releases? And what's with those Canadian ratings?

Studio Ghibli president Toshio Suzuki has announced on NTV's Getsuyoru! (Monday Night!) late-night variety television special on June 4 that director Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies, Only Yesterday) is working on a new film. Takahata's last directorial feature was 1999's My Neighbors the Yamadas, a comic-strip-based film that Walt Disney Home Entertainment released in North America. Suzuki explained that Takahata takes a long time between films because there are few animators who can realize his ideas. Source: Ghibli World
