On Dec. 7, 2012, Mamoru Hosoda, Aoi Miyazaki, and other main cast members met up again six months after the film's initial release to record audio commentary for the Blu-ray and DVD . During the recording, Hosoda stated, “Truthfully, it is a work that can be interpreted various ways. I think everyone will identify with the film in a different way, and they may also be reminded of their past, comparing it with the film.” Also in regard to the film, Miyazaki stated, “Honestly, no matter how many times I watch it, there are so many moments in this great work that will give me goosebumps, bring tears to my eyes, and instantly overwhelm me with emotion.”

Even if you haven’t seen the film, you shouldn’t hesitate to pick up a first edition; it definitely won’t disappoint!
