Ni no Kuni is getting an anime movie this summer in Japan (no word on an international release). Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino is writing the script and former Studio Ghibli animator Yoshiyuki Momose is directing. Previously, Level-5 has turned Professor Layton, Yokai Watch and Inazuma Eleven into anime.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.
