posted on 2009-07-01 22:05 EDT
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the people behind the Oscar Awards, has invited anime director Kunio Katō and 133 people to join its roster. Kato became only the second Japanese animator to win an Oscar when his "La Maison en Petits Cubes" ("Tsumiki no Ie" or House of Blocks) short won the Best Animated Short Film category at the 81st Annual Academy Awards in February. (The first was Hayao Miyazaki, who won the Best Animated Feature category with his Spirited Away film.) Actress Anne Hathaway, the voice of Haru in Disney's English dub of The Cat Returns film, has also been invited this year.

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
A show mixing in a dash of comedy, a bit of wisdom, a pinch of cuteness, and a whole lot of grief... a show that can be enjoyed by everyone who is willing to let down their guard and feel the raw emotions pouring out of the screen.
