Bubu, thanks for making the front page for Shonen Meriken Sakku! How exciting that this movie will be Miyazaki Aoi's first comedic role. I'm really looking forward to seeing the movie when it gets released, especially since Miyazaki Aoi is one of my favorite Japanese actresses. She's been doing such a superb job in Atsu-hime, so it'll be fun to see her in for the first time in a comedy!

I was just checking the official movie website, and it looks like the movie premiered in February, while the DVD was released in August. I'd really like to see Miyazaki Aoi in a role other than Princess Atsu, she's a great actress!
