Bungaku Shoujo / 文学少女

Production I.G work, it caught my interest few months ago. Now the trailer is out so expect the series out by April or May 2010. Looks interesting to me, though the main female lead tendency to eat books horrifies me since it is a sacrilege to destroy books. Yes, she eats pages of her books.

Academy Award nominees: Ponyo of the Seas and Astroboy

For Academy Awards 2009 for animation movies category, 2 anime originated flicks were chosen for nominee candidates, namely Ponyo and Astroboy CG Movie. I haven't watch Astroboy yet but Ponyo to be honest, not really Miyazaki's best work. To me, Princess Mononoke is his magnum opus. Ponyo did not have the same amount of charm and magical moment like Spirited Away nor grittiness and honesty like Princess Mononoke.

But yeah, good luck to Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki sensei anyway.
