Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea

Although I usually get pretty excited when a new Hayao Miyazaki film comes along, I can’t say I’ve been particularly pumped for Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. I didn’t much enjoy the teases I’d seen for the film: the deformed and simply drawn main character pointed to a loose style of animation that I didn’t really like. Well, the extended trailer above reveals an entire different film than what I was expecting, and I’m now quite looking forward to seeing it once I get back to Tokyo. Looks like it’s turning into a huge box office hit as well (it opened this past weekend).
