This morning, we announced the arrival of the anime anthology film, Robot Carnival, on DVD this year. Many people have made favorable comparisons to another similar anthology movie titled Neo Tokyo. This film features three segments, each directed by Rintaro, Yoshiaki Kawajiri, and once again, Katsuhiro Otomo, and was released in Japan in 1987, with a Streamline Pictures release in 1989.
I swear I am not going on a Katsuhiro Otomo kick this week. Honest! It's just been a very fortunate bit of luck. But it's always good to reexamine the career of one of Japanese animation's giants. And now I'm really in the mood to read The Dark Knight Returns or The Killing Joke...
Thursday was another banner day for Ghibli Blog. Traffic reached another high, thanks to the Goro Miyazaki interview, and our look at Hayao Miyazaki's Imaginary Flying Machines. I'm always surprised to see which posts get attention; it's completely impossible to predict what will happen, or if anybody will actually show up to the site.
Time for bed - good night!
