Other movie releases

Tonfu Kozou

Also released under the title Little Ghostly Adventures of Tofu Boy, the film is billed as the first fully 3D Japanese anime. It is also notable for being coproduced by Warner Bros. Directed, written and executive produced by Gisaburo Sugii, the film has charm enough to win over younger audiences, but older children are likely to be disappointed by the less than dynamic use of 3D effects, and aficionados of Japanese animation are likely to be disappointed when comparing Tonfu Kozou with the depth and spirit of top-flight anime from the likes of Hayao Miyazaki. For Taiwan screenings, the film has been dubbed by Chao Tzu-chiang (趙自強) and members of the hugely popular If Kids Theater Company (如果兒童劇團), adding considerably to its local appeal.
