Everyone's probably heard of it by now...Obata-sensei was arrested today, for being in possession of a knife with a blade longer than 6cm.
Ursula Le Guin's response to Miyazaki Goro's interpretation of Earthsea, and comments on how it was made. A few weeks ago, Ghibli released ゲド戦記 (aka Gedo Senki - Tales from Earthsea), based on one of Le Guin's creations. ANN reported that she gave a positive response, which sparked the entry on her webpage. I have yet to read the books or see the film, but there are a few things revealed in this response that I wanted to comment on first.
