From Up on Poppy Hill Due in U.S. March 15th

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Anime, Film, Moving Pictures

Studio Ghibli’s newest movie, “From Up on Poppy Hill”, is set to be released in the U.S. in about six weeks. It’s a touching coming-of-age story set in 1960’s Japan. Usually I can’t stand touching coming-of-age stories but for Ghibli I’ll give it a shot.

The only thing that worries me is that it’s directed by Goro Miyazaki, he of the absolutely wretched “Tales From Earthsea”. I suppose I can be kind and say it wasn’t so much his direction but the horrible writing that ruined that movie, but honestly I’m not sure.
