Although I don't know much about anime, I enjoy Diana Wynne Jones' books so I will probably be seeing this. Anyone else seen it/planning to see it?

Sorry but i have never heard of it....is that bad?
"They are a curious thing, these emotions. How they fly in the face of logic, how they overrule the most basic instincts. Because, in the measure of time, in the measure of humanity, we sense those self-indulgent instincts to be a weakness, we sense that the needs of the community must outweight the desires of the one. Only when we admit to our failures and recognize our weaknesses can we rise above them. Together." -Drizzt Do'Urden

I highly recommend seeing this film. The imagery is pretty interesting and the characters are believable. The first part is a little odd but it gets better (if you see it you'll know what I mean).

Like most of Miyazaki's works, it's very well done.

Agreed. Also, it doesn't vary too much from the book, which si good, as it's a very good book. Incidentally, it was the first anime film I had ever seen.
