NEO Awards 2014 WINNER of Best Anime Movie

This is a surprise win in the best anime movie category for Manga Entertainment’s tale of a woman who is left to raise her two werewolf children alone after the death of their father. The win was surprising not because the movie is unworthy – far from it! – but rather because of the incredibly stiff competition it was up against. Wolf Children beat Hayao Miyazaki’s final film, The Wind Rises; an incredible feat given Studio Ghibli’s star appeal... and their marketing budget! But Mamoru Hosoda has proven himself to be a director to watch, and we can’t wait for his next project, The Boy and the Beast.

“Wolf Children is an absolute joy, and it’s fantastic to hear that it has won Best Anime Movie. There were so many great films out this year, so it really is amazing to know that this made the top spot.” Manga Entertainment
