I was wondering what the relevance was to all those question marks :lol:

Source: The Grudge's Shimizu Helms Live-Action Kiki's Delivery Service

In early April, rumors started to swirl around that there were plans to produce a live-action version of Studio Ghibli's beloved Kiki's Delivery Service (in Japan: Majo no Takky?bin ??????). A few days later, fans of the 1989 classic were disappointed to find out that Studio Ghibli denied any involvement with such a production. Turns out, both items were true. Ghibli's film is based on the 1985 novel Majo no Takky?bin by Eiko Kadono (?? ??) and it was revealed that a live-action movie was being produced based on the original novel. The film will be directed by Takashi Shimizu (?? ? of The Grudge/Juon fame!) and will star 16-year-old newcomer F?ka Koshiba (????) as Kiki/Minami Takayama. Unlike the Ghibli film which covered the single novel that was published at the time, the live-action version will use the first two novels as its basis. The story revolves around the young witch spending a year  in a town apart from other witches (but with her cat Jiji), using her magic to earn a living. The live-action film is expected to fly into theaters in Spring 2014.

- Continuity is or it is not. There is no such thing as soft continuity.
- A character IS his continuity.
- Continuity is consistency of the characteristics of people, plot, objects, and places seen by the reader or viewer.
- The Outhouse. We're not CBR yet, but the mods are trying really hard.
