During our wondrous Otakon escapades we got the chance to see a couple of their premiers, and since Otakon was nice enough to have them so we decided to review them. The second premier we wanted to talk about is Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below by Makoto Shinkai. You probably know it better as “That New Makoto Shinkai Movie” as the title is just so gosh darn long! Joining us through the magic of the internet is Gerald from Anime World Order, who also gives us his run down on Anime Festival Orlando 2011.
Now, no one knows when this film will reach American shores. We hope it’s soon, as we’d love to see this movie again! But you never know. Knowing how the Japanese anime industry seems to roll, it’s much more likely that they’ll instead take the time to farm out the movie to movie festivals for a couple of years, then release the DVD and Blu-Ray in Japan at inflated prices and refuse to allow it to be sold in America for another year to reduce the chance of reverse importation, which only causes everyone to pirate it then forget about it, sabotaging US sales. Not that this is has ever happened before or anything.
AWA Fun Times are a comin’! What kind of OSMcast panels are we throwing out for AWA this year?! Well here they are:
