This is a damn good anime. Would've thought it was Miyazaki. Watch this, it's bloody brilliant.
I thought the same thing and had to check... other then the obvious and it being a Studio Ghibli film, the director's past work includes being key animator, in-between animator and clean up artist on several of Miyazaki's films.
He's actually Miyazaki's protege and the youngest ever graduate from the Studio Ghibli Academy.
Looking forward to what he does next. It's almost heartwarming knowing that he made this movie and his career as a director is only starting out. I appreciate today's computer-animated movies and all, but there is something about traditional animation I will always enjoy.
Oh yeah. Traditional animation beats CGI any day.
