Perhaps I'm a purist but I don't want Japanese, American or English. Howl is
*Welsh*, I think he should be played by a Welsh actor. Regrettably I doubt
they'll do that, despite there being a number of actors capable of fitting
the bill.

It doesn't really matter to me who voices Sophie or Calcifer, Ingary after
all is it's own place but Howl is Welsh and I'd be disappointed if the story
was altered to facilitate the voice of a foreign actor
