Anyway the tour has ‘technically’ already started, as it began on the 18th April 2014, but the first film being shown isn’t until 11th May 2014 so there is still some time to book seats and arrange travel.

Mamoru Hosoda’s third feature length film, Wolf Children, is finally here within the UK but what exactly do we think of this UK Blu-ray Release by Manga Entertainment? Find out in our Blu-ray Review of Wolf Children.

Synopsis:

19-year-old Hana is studying at university when she falls in love with a mysterious classmate with a highly unusual secret – he is the last descendant of Japan’s now-extinct grey wolves, and possesses the ability to transform into a wolf. Not daunted by this, Hana and her wolf man lover start a family, with energetic daughter Yuki (‘Snow’) soon followed by her more timid little brother Ame (‘Rain’).

But when tragedy strikes and her wolf man suddenly dies, Hana is left to cope with the two young children on her own – and both Yuki and Ame have inherited their dad’s power to shift between human and wolf form. Moving to the countryside and the seclusion of an abandoned old house in the mountains, Hana hopes to raise her family away from prying eyes …but life’s not that simple. Read more of this post

Then she met a man, who turned out to be a wolf, and together they built a family. Hana loved her mate fiercely, but fate took him from her, leaving her alone with two unusual kids she didn’t know how to raise. Frightened of being discovered, Hana and her wolf children fled to the countryside to build a new life.

Raising her little wild things was an adventure. It left Hana bruised, scratched, exhausted, and joyously overwhelmed as her pups grew stronger and wandered further every day. This is a mother’s journey. Teach your children to chase their dreams – and smile through the tears as they disappear into the world in search of who they will become. Hana wasn’t always a mother, but it was always what she was meant to be.
