Following the critical and commercial success of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer Wars, Hosoda Mamoru has been named one of the brightest hopes for the future of Japanese animation

p Hana voiced by Miyazaki Aoi is an ordinary university student

p Note Product information, including subtitles and languages, subject to change without notice.

An original story co-created by Hosoda and frequent screenwriter Okudera Satoko, I Wolf Children /I is a unique blend of fantasy romance and domestic drama, following the journey of a woman who falls in love with a wolfman and ends up raising two human-wolf hybrid children on her own

Due to their wolf-like qualities, Hana decides to keep her children at home to avoid attention from others

However, Hana accepts the wolfman for who he is, and the two eventually have two children Yuki and Ame

However, Hosoda's risk paid off, and I Wolf Children /I became the highest-grossing film of Hosoda's career and one of the highest-grossing domestic films of 2012

In a risky move, Hosoda eschews the adventure element of his two previous films, telling a gentle story about learning to let go and the sacrifices of parenthood

One day, she experiences love at first sight with a young man voiced by Osawa Takao who periodically sneaks into her class

Realizing the difficulties of raising two half-wolf children in the city, Hana moves to the countryside and discovers the peaceful haven her family desperately needs

The two soon fall in love, and Hana discovers that he is actually a wolfman

Three years after I Summer Wars /I , Hosoda raises the bar again with I Wolf Children /I

When the wolfman suddenly passes away, Hana is forced to care for the children on her own
