New Studio Ghibli film announced for 2014!
Seemingly not content with having two brand new movies out this year in the form of Kaze Tachinu and The Tale of Princess Kaguya, Japan’s Studio Ghibli has just announced that a new animated feature, Omoide no Maanii (When Marnie Was There), based on the novel of the same name by English writer Joan G. Robinson, will be hitting screens in Japan in summer 2014.
The news broke earlier this afternoon as Studio Ghibli unveiled a new website, which offers a single still image of the movie’s poster. Distributor Toho has also confirmed the film in its 2014 lineup.
The original 1967 novel for kids and young adults tells the story of Anna, a young foster child who is sent away for the summer to the Norfolk countryside. She soon meets a girl called Marnie and, through their many conversations, begins to learn more about the girl’s intriguing past.
When Marnie Was There has been translated into multiple languages, and is loved by many Japanese, particularly young women who felt that it helped them, too, find their place in the world and cope with feeling that little bit different to everyone else.
The Studio Ghibli adaptation is being directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, who made his directing debut for the acclaimed studio with 2010′s The Secret World of Arrietty. We’ll be sure to bring you more about this intriguing new production as it breaks.

"And lo, the wet bandits did doth descend onto the house, and on micro machines did they step, and VCR’s did they intend to take. But the good child did knoweth this plan and he did string paint cans onto rope and into the faces of the intruders they did plummet, for thou shalt not mess with kids over Christmas, sayeth the Kevin."
I downloaded this mod because I thought it’d be funny, but it’s actually really terrifying in action, especially in conjunction with some immersion/difficulty mods. You’ll be in the midst of a quest, going off to kill some evil guy or save some jerk, fighting off some baddies when ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU HEAR THIS SARCASTIC SOUNDING CHEERY MUSIC AND HEAR THE DEMONIC TOOT TOOT OF A TRAIN AND YOU LOOK IN THE SKY BUT YOU CAN’T SEE WHERE IT IS AND THE TOOT TOOT GETS LOUDER AND YOU KNOW IT’S CLOSER BUT YOU STILL CAN’T FIND IT AND THEN A STREAM OF TRAIN FIRE SHOOTS FROM BEHIND YOU AND YOU’RE FUCKING DEAD
