Anyone else get the new Japanese character in Tapped Out? I like the cross-platform promotion.

Miyazaki's films are so great... I don't think there's anyone involved in animation that doesn't love them. That was a fun tribute.

Stan Lee is cool.

No idea who Maserati is.

How about an episode dedicated (and I don't mean just having Bart write on the chalkboard) to Edna Krabpappel, played by the hysterical Marcia Wallace, who sadly passed away in 2013? She was an actual cast member and deserves a tribute way before Miyazaki. (I have nothing against anime, but, can someone tell me why they always have to mess it up with an obligatory Sprittle and Chim Chim character?)

Howl's moving castle and Spirited away, two of my favorites.
