my thought is that kiki's delivery service deals with both the themes and
content that is most similar to DWJ's books. i also like that film rather a
lot. PM i'm less a fan of. i urge DWJ fans to seek out kiki's delivery
service. =) although, it probably won't give you an exact idea of what to
expect from howl, becuase miyazaki won't be directing it. in fact, we don't
know who is or any other details of the film. i imagine when the 'spirited
away' hype dies down in japan, we'll learn some new details.
it's nice to see tokuma shoten's new commitment to chrestomanci (the little
logo in the top middle of the witch week cover
http://images.amazon.com/images/P/4198614040.09.LZZZZZZZ.jpg ) features a
"dai mahoutsukai kurestomanshii" logo, which implies to me that they are
making something out of the series in japan. i'm not sure why they published
witch week first, i guess it's the most "harry potterish" of the
chrestomanci books cos it features kids being subversive in a school. i
wonder if that's the reasoning? HP1-3 are out in japan.
according amazon.co.jp, translations of christopher chant and charmed life
came out in 1994, but they appear to be OOP at the moment. as well as time
of the ghost in 1993, and wild robert some unspecified time. amazon doesn't
have cover shots for any of those books.
