Or if you like I can send you information.

I have been curious as to why there hasn't been much (any?) discussion here 
about Miramax releasing Miyazaki's "Princess Mononoke" It is receiving a 
lot of publicity, in fact Miyazaki is in North America (just left Toronto) 
attending Miyazaki film festivals across North America.

Do fans of "film" separate themselves from "anime" completely? Even the 
works of Miyazaki, which most would NOT place into the stereotype of 
"anime"  (in fact Miyazaki was adamant that we not call him the Master of 
Japanese Anime). Just curious.
