As promised, I've finally added the direct link to the fansub for Jarinko Chie. This is a great announcement, and long overdue. Now you can enjoy this great Isao Takahata comedy without having to learn Japanese.
I'm thrilled to be able to see this movie with subtitles; however, I'm still a bit disappointed that none are included on the Japanese DVD. Which I happen to own, of course. When you're a dedicated enough fan, you don't let something as silly as language get in the way.
