In a recent diary entry on the 13th Kakudoh, general director of Digimon
Adventure series, wrote on his web on the 13th, " When we were watching the
soccer game on TV at the recording studio, Hosoda, who recently came back at
Toei, appeared. He said he came to join the meeting on Oja-Majo Doremi."

Mamoru Hosoda, who directed Digimon the Movie for Toei before joining
Ghibli, was supposed to be the director of Ghibli's upcoming feature film
"Hauru no Ugoku Shiro (Howl's Moving Castle)." While Ghibli has made no
official announcement, it seems likely that, if Hosoda has in fact left
Ghibli, production on Howl's Moving Castle would be delayed.

Howl's Moving Castle, based on the book by Diana Wynne Jones, was expected
to be released in the spring of 2003.
