THE BOY AND THE BEAST: Full Trailer For Hosoda Mamoru's Latest
[Updated with English subtitled version.]

There is no question about it: Hosoda Mamoru has got a very good chance of becoming the new king of anime. His last three films, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars and The Wolf Children, are very different films and each has its own fans and supporters. Yet, they have just one thing in common: they are all great animated films. 

Now that Studio Ghibli has stopped making feature films, at least for the time being, the world's anime fans are in need of a new Japanese animated feature that will enthrall, delight and fascinate them. Hosoda's new film, The Boy And The Beast, which is due for release in Japan on July 11, may just be the film they have been waiting for.

The story is set in the human realm (Tokyo's Shibuya ward) and the bakemono realm ("Shibutenmachi"). In these two worlds which must not intersect, there lives a lonely boy and a lonely bakemono. One day, the boy gets lost in the bakemono world, becomes the disciple of the bakemono Kumatetsu, and is renamed Kyūta.

Check out the full trailer below. It looks amazing.
