Live action Ghibli; Yoko Kanno new project

From Anime UK news (Hail to Britannia!!! Sure, why not! we Americans haven’t given back Clive Anderson his colonies! We had better appease his countrymen!!!)

# A live action movie version of Grave of the Fireflies is on the way and due for a Japanese theatrical release during 2008. The classic 1988 anime film (of same name) from Studio Ghibli is acclaimed by many to be one of the finest animated movies of all time; based on Akiyuki Nosaka’s tragic novel, Grave of the Fireflies follows two young war orphans who find themselves homeless and starving during the US’s prolonged bombardment of WWII Japan.

# Legendary anime soundtrack composer Yoko Kanno will be contributing her talents to the new Macross TV series “Macross F (Macross Frontier)” .

And for some fine British sarcasm, please read the forum responses.

(Edit: Eh. all right.)

  1. What the ?
    There already was a live action of “Hotaru no Haka”, just 3 years ago ! A remake of 3-years old movie ? Thats rich.
