I *am* sort of an anime fan, but I still think Howl could be a live-action
film and that it would be great in that form.  I have a feeling that when
Miyazaki's version comes out, I'll like it a lot on its own merits, but it's
not going to be enough like the book to be satisfying as an adaptation.

Besides, Calcifer has a day job.  :)
