Second Trailer For Mamoru Hosoda's THE WOLF CHILDREN, AME AND YUKI
Mamoru Hosoda - the acclaimed director of Summer Wars and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time - releases his third feature on Japanese screens this summer with the arrival of the fantasy tinged The Wolf Children, Ame And Yuki.

Hana is a 19-year-old college student. She falls in love with a werewolf and has two children, Ame and Yuki. The four live quietly in a corner of a city, but Hana decides to move to the countryside when the father werewolf suddenly dies.

Hosoda has quickly built a reputation for himself as one of the world's premiere animators and early signs are this new film will do nothing but cement that reputation. A second full trailer has just arrived for it which you can see below.

One of my most anticipated releases of this year, no doubt. The synopsis doesn't really pull at me so far (then again, neither did the synopsis of "Totoro" and look what happened...) but the talent involved certainly does.

Concept-wise it does seem pretty standard but like you said it's the execution that counts. People really don't make many unabashedly earnest films anymore so I think Hosoda couldn't have picked a better time to come into his own as a filmmaker.
On a random note, my Japanese is getting good enough that I understood 90% of that trailer. Living here is paying off I guess.

By the way, Hosoda´s regular character designer is Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, who did the Neon Genesis Evangelion series and also the current Evangelion movies.

He´s doing this one too and damn, look closely at that poster and it does show!
