From Up on Poppy Hill (Kokuriko-Zak Kara) is the most recent film by the gurus of anime in Studio Ghibili. Directed by Goro Miyazaki, the movie has managed to overtake the top position in Japan’s chart for highest-earning domestic films, and this is happening just some two months after its release. This movie is written and planned by none other than Hayao Miyazaki himself and this is the main reason we are not surprised at all that it managed to surpass the two Pokemon movies that aired about the same time as it. (trailer of the movie below)
The story is based on the shoujo manga with the same name by Chizuru Takahashi (art) and Tetsurou Sayama (story). It is about life, human relationships and the coming of age of a young girl.
