The Monkey is having a birthday in a couple of weeks, and it occurred to me that we should go see “The Secret World of Arrietty,” written by Hayao Miyazaki and produced by Studio Ghibli…we are BIG fans. We own “Spirited Away,” “Castle in the Sky,” “Nausicaa,” “Princess Mononoke,” “Kiki’s Delivery Service,” “Ponyo,” “Grave of the Fireflies,” “Whisper of the Heart,” and “Howl’s Moving Castle.” We have watched each of these multiple times, and although they have (mostly) good dubbed versions, we prefer the Japanese language versions. Because we live in a not-large area, we have only ever seen the English language versions in the theaters. However, I thought that perhaps, for her birthday, we could make the trek to Dallas or Austin to see “Arrietty” in Japanese.
Look what I found:
