FUNimation Lines Up A Bunch Of 'Wolf Children' Screenings In The U.S. In April

"Summer Wars" director Mamoru Hosoda's warm and gentle anime about a single mom raising a pair of shapeshifting children has landed dates for Texas, Massachusetts, and California.

"Wolf Children" is coming to the Dallas International Film Festival, the Boston International Children's Film Festival, and more throughout the month. And you should go see it!

Funny thing: I have a screener for "Wolf Children" sitting here without subs, but I loved "Summer Wars" and thought I could at least lay eyes on it for a few minutes to see what it was like. Japanese language barrier notwithstanding, the film was beautiful, gentle, sad, and wonderful all at once based solely on the "acting" of its characters and the simplicity of the story: after the father of her children dies, a woman moves out of the big city to raise their two children who happen to share their dad's gift for transforming into wolves.

I'm just hoping it'll make its way to my neck of the woods.
