Glad to see it doing so well, woot!

Out of curiosity though, how has it's earnings so far stacked up against Summer Wars? Or Girl Who Leapt Through Time? Actually, I'd be interested to know what his most financially successful film was period, even counting his Digimon and One Piece work.

Funimation must be happy to own the rights to be critically-acclaimed films.

Really can't wait to watch this, Wolf Children is easily one of my favorite Japanese animated films.
