Separately, Wild Bunch has been offering television and DVD release rights to Tomomi Mochizuki's Umi ga Kikoeru (Ocean Waves), one of the few Studio Ghibli projects that were not directed by Hayao Miyazaki or Isao Takahata. Optimum Releasing will be bringing the 1993 work out in the United Kingdom, while Telepool has the rights for the German market. Ocean Films bought the rights for the French-language release, and Spain's Aurum has that country's. In Sweden, Norway, and Finland, the DVD will come from NonStop Entertainment.
Pretty good that this is getting a release, it's meant to be like Whisper of the Heart so it should be pretty good. I'll pick it up to add to my Ghibli collection.
