I like that take, it certainly sheds a new light on things and provides an entirely different perspective that I never would've otherwise considered.

I love the kid they got to voice Yuki,it's very different from even other child actors I've heard in anime,there's a certain rowdyness to her voice that really suites Yuki

As for Ame

Spoiler for ame:


Hosoda doesn't often use standard seiyuus for his film,the one exception in this film is living legend Hayashibara Megumi as Sohei's mom.

^ Child Yuki was one of the most funnest character to watch in the film. The way that she'd growl and laugh all over the place was so energetic and the child VA did an absolute bang up job of bringing that across with her character. I especially liked her very first lines of the flim. "Okaa-san! I'm hungry! *growls* Okaa-san! I'm hungry" That scene coupled with the BGM really was just so fun to watch ^_________^


Teen Ame also had a really deep voice, the change was instantly noticeable after that particularly impressive and nifty timeskip montage (another great and memorable scene for me from the film).

I think Duckroll put it best, that while everything manages to neatly wrap itself up by the end, the film doesn't actually traditionally build up to a climax which is something already so engrained and expected into the typical audience member. Because it's missing that aspect of traditional film structure, they feel as though it hasn't properly ended yet if it hasn't gone through one, hence the abruptness. I can appreciate that aspect of the film now, after having read the various posts here, so thanks to all the valuable insight here
I don't particularly feel as though the finale was too-opened ended either since the major conflicts within each character is largely resolved. But I can see why people could feel that way as it ends on a 'the story goes on' kind of note when people are usually more accustomed to a 'and so the tale ends here'.

He doesn't use the same composers either, which keeps the music in his movies fresh, and keeps the "sound" he wants for each of his films unique in that sense. In fact, the composer for Wolf Children isn't even a soundtrack composer, but a general musician. Hosoda was listening to his music while drawing the storyboards, and he decided that it was the sort of score he wanted for his film. I think it's a great touch.

I find this OST more memorable than the OSTs in previous Hosoda movies,in part because it seems Hosoda relied more on music this time around.What I also like about the soundtrack is that it seems to have been recorded after a first image edit of the movie was made so it really syncs with what's happening on screen.


The movie will be playing in Hawaii on oct 17th and 21st

Yes, possibly quite a few subbed versions are out... but only in cinemas. Blu-ray and DVDs are yet to be released.

Turns out it looks like the french BD/DVDs will be out in april so I suppose that's around the time the japanese BD/DVDs come out as well since the only thing keeping the french licensor from releasing it sooner is having to wait for the japanese.

And apparently Mamoru Hosoda will be in attendance

I bought tickets for the 4:00 PM show on March 9th. I am thinking this is too good to be true and I misread something.
