new Studio Ghibli project announced

Recommended Posts

just read the following:



"Studio Ghibli have announced that their next project will be Goro Miyazaki's anime adaptation of Chizuru Takahashi and Tetsuro Sayama's 'Kokuriko-Zaka Kara' manga. The film is being co-written by Hayao Miyazaki and Keiko Niwa, and will be produced by Ghibli's former president Toshio Suzuki.


The story is set in Showa 38 (1963, a year before the Tokyo Olympics) and follows the coming of age of an ordinary, pigtailed high school girl named Komatsuzaki in Yokohama, a harbour city near Tokyo. Her sailor father went missing after an accident, and her photographer mother is frequently going abroad for work. The manga recounts Komatsuzaki's everyday life of "laughter and tears" with two boys - a school newspaper member and the student council president.


The original manga ran in Kodansha's 'Nakayoshi' shojo magazine in 1980. Studio Ghibli's publishing department and Kadokawa Group Publishing re-issued the manga this past July with a new wraparound jacket band that said "Hayao Miyazaki recommends this!"


'Kokuriko-Zaka Kara' is currently in the final stages of storyboarding and is due for release in Japan next summer."
