Some great talent here. Good to see Miyazaki Aoi is back again after her great role in Wolf Children, and Yakusho Koji is really one of the greats of modern Japanese cinema. And I swear, Sometani Shota has to be the most in demand actor in Japan - seems like he's in every other movie coming out these days.

As for the movie itself, I'm definitely excited. Not a huge fan of the monster character designs here, but the human characters look great. Looking forward to seeing this opening day.

I hadn't heard of this until now... but honestly? It looks like it could be a pretty fun film. I specially like Kumatetsu's design (the bear with the sword); it reminds me of the antropomorphic characters one would see on a feature film from the 90's.

I like the names chosen in this article for the movie. Definitely talent there and also a closer look at the character designs got me even more hyped now for the film.

If only these movies came to LatinAmerica... Here in Peru I can only legally watch DBZ movies, maybe some of Naruto, but I really don't care about those. I love Hosoda's movies, especially The Girl Leap Through Time, and these seems that it's going to be really funny.

Mamoru Hosoda has been one of my favorite director's ever since his work on Children's War Game. I've been looking forward since day one and the trailer only makes me even more hyped.
