Got back from this.
Best Ghibli movie since Spirited Away easily. I would consider it probably within the top 5 Ghibli films ever made.

The animation is fucking astounding, so fluid it's insane, it took them 8 years to animate and it's the most expensive animated feature film too date production wise as well.

Story is really sad though and it's a tear jerker.

The only downside possibly is it's run length, it's 2 and a half hours and that can possibly turn you off.

My cinema showed it in Japanese, so I can't comment on the english voice acting of Hit Girl and Lucy Liu

Kissanime doesn't have it... so I can't say anything for now. You are lucky OP.

Why is this allowed
>>
>>115299038
International screenings have started? Which country?
>>
I doubt it'll top Wind rises.
>>
>>115299038
Yeah, I expected it to be good when I watched it but I was blown away by the art direction. So many memorable scenes.

It's true that the length can be a turn off but I found that the pacing was still good and it didn't feel too slow (something The Wind Rises didn't quite manage).
>>
>>115299038
>2 1/2 hours
If I can watch Disappearance of Haruhi, which was almost 3 hours, I can do this one.
>>
>>115299580
Australia here.

Pretty sure it was released internationally last week.

>>115299642
The scene where the prince gets killed had everyone laughing, it's kind of funny because it's so comedic and cartoony and then the next scene is Kaguya being told "Yah he's was killed instantly" and it goes really fucking serious. It's a great contrast.
>>
>>115299038
Worst 2hu
>>
When does the BD release?
>>
>>115300167
Probably not until the international screenings end.

This film bombed hard in Japan and basically has destroyed Studio Ghibli because it was so insanely expensive to produce. It's probably in their best interest to get as many screenings in the west as possible. (though marketing could be better)

It does hold 100% on RT though.

>This film bombed hard in Japan and basically has destroyed Studio Ghibli because it was so insanely expensive to produce

What the hell, really? I thought a combination of Ghibli + Tale of Princess Kaguya would have been hype to watch in Japan. I'm guessing the art style makes it difficult for audiences to get drawn in, plus it may not be something worth re-watching?
>>
>>115300516
>I'm guessing the art style makes it difficult for audiences to get drawn in
It's probably the best artstyle Ghibli has come up with.

[citation needed]
>>
>>115300246
Is there any particular known reason for why it bombed ?
While in recent years Ghibli aren't considered "absolute must watch" anymore, I still find this surprising.
>>
>>115300772
Probably because everyone already knows about the story of Princess Kaguya.
>>
>>115300246

Did me seeing the wind rises 5 times in theater while it was showing in Canada help Ghibli?
>>
>>115300834
Yeah, I guess that could be that. While it is very often referenced and used in stories, it looks like there's not a lot of straight retelling of the tale.
>>
>>115299038
Not anime.

Goddammit, Japan.

-7/10

>>115300834
I thought only the geriatric audience would actually know that. Considering how out of touch most of the Japanse youth are nowadays.
>>
>>115301626
The faggot thinks that talking about Ghibli is talking about Disney.
>>
>>115299038
Too bad it bombed because it didn't have Miyazaki's name plastered on the posters.

Then again, I think people just want a good, classic fantasy flick again. One with wide international appeal, and the last one to really do that was Howl's moving castle.
>>
>>115299038
I'll be watching it when it is released in the states on the 17th. I think they will probably have it both dubbed and subbed . I'll be watching it subbed. I'm excited.
>>
>>115302372
It's pretty much the Disney of Japan. Good riddance.
>>
I'd figure Gaijin would eat this up, it's Ghibli, it looks amazing, and it concerns a myth that most are unfamiliar with,
>>
>>115304287
But when Disney are good, they are the best.
Tangled is the best animated movie of the last 20 years.
>>
>>115304526
>Tangled is the best animated movie of the last 20 years.
I don't understand how or why anyone would hype of Frozen as if it were the greatest movie ever made when Tangled already exists. Seriously, Frozen was fucking overhyped shit. Story, dialogue (hurr finish eachother's SANDWICHES! so randum! XD), everything about it was at best, mediocre.

Where the hell do I find out where this will be playing on friday?

>budget 5 billion
>only made in japan 2.5 billion

Jesus
>>
>>115299038
havent seen it yet, is it good?

i didnt like spirit away
>>
>>115304680

I consider Frozen good. The story is ok-ish, The two sisters protagonists are adorable, the male main character is likeable, the Elk is cute and surprisingly I didn't want to choke the talking snowman. It doesn't really has anything I would complain about (except the idiotic fanbase), but it's indeed overrated.

I also liked Tangled a bit betted.
>>
>>115305239
Is that budget in yenopoly or petrodollars?
>>
>>115302234

You missed a number. It was a neat look into the jap aircraft design process though , I wasn't aware they had to deal with such shitty engines.

Source on this? Poor Ghibli, apparently everything went downhill after Wind Rises.

"It was inevitable." - Miyazaki
Even he knew ;_;

It was interesting to see how Ghibli functioned after watching The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness.
>>
>>115307549
Just look on the wiki

Seriously though where the fuck is this playing in the states on friday? Im in LA, im sure it is playing somewhere near me.
>>
>>115307660
I live like 30 minutes away from LA. I actually drove to watch Wind Rises there last time.

Same, went there with two friends during its oscar showing

What the fuck was up with all of those old people being there.
>>
I'm excited to see how they topped The Wind Rises, which I consider to be one of Miyazaki's best films and a perfect send off for his career.
>>
I fail to see why Ghibli dying is a bad thing. Plebs only care about Miyazaki and he's the worst director at Ghibli. Hell, he's the worst director and animator of his contemporaries.

He remade the same two movies over and over, had one style, and never learned about pacing or editing. He even fucked up Lupin.
>>
>>115308449
Agreed.
>>
>>115308449
It's just /a/ being tsun as usual. Although I do agree with you, I'd rather not see Ghibli die at its lowest point.
>>
>>115299038
The Kishimoto version was better.
>>
>>115308288
This movie is great but it's not better than The Wind Rises.
>>
Does Studio Ghibli hate happy endings? No matter what they always seems to make it a downer ending or at best a bittersweet ending.
>>
>>115304526
Not that anon, but
>Tangled
>Frozen
>good

They were very mediocre. Frozen more so.
You want a good animated childrens' movie, watch Ernest and Celestine instead. In fact I think the last 3D big-budget animated that impressed me was... fuck, I don't even know. I liked the Paperman and Get a Horse short before Wreck It Ralph and Frozen, if that counts.
