Hey take a look at this!
Eoin and I were talking last night about fantasy novels of 'Earthsea' came up as I absolutly love all 6 books and Eoin only likes the first one. Anyway after being bored at work and trying to find new and exciting movie that are being released this year I discovered that they are making the 3rd Earthsea book into a anime movie. I can't wait, I just hope it doesn't take to long to translate it or at least put subtitles on.
Just in case you haven't had the chance I highly recomend 'Princess Mononoke', 'Spirited Away' and the very fun but wierd 'Cat Returns'. The guy who made them is like an anime legend and his son is making this.
