Great voice cast! I'll be watching the original japanese version with subtitles, but it's good to know they're treating Miyazaki's work with that level of respect.

That's a damn fine voice cast. I loved Princess Monoke and Howl's Moving Castle. Never saw Spirited Away. Correct me if I'm wrong but did he do Ponyo? Wasn't feeling that.
