This just looks magnificent. It's going to be a fantastic movie, and no doubt it's all gangbusters in Japan, where Ponyo has finally arrived.
I know this will be a common refrain from animation fans the world over, but Ponyo is entirely hand-drawn. There isn't a single frame of CGI in the entire movie, and nothing has been xeroxed or photoshopped. 180,000 drawing. And when you consider the shockingly short production times for the Studio Ghibli movies, the mind boggles. Do these artists ever sleep?
Ponyo is going to be fantastic.
