No fucking way......just checked this out on IMDB:

Kaze Tachinu (Eng. The Wind Rises)

Dir: Hayao Miyazaki
Writ: Tatsuo Hori (based on his novel)

"A look at the life of Jiro Horikoshi, the man who designed Japanese fighter planes during World War II."

Seems an ideal role for Anno to play.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Well, now we know why Rebuild is years overdue: Anno has been trying to launch his voice-acting career, and has finally nailed a headliner role.

BS!
He can do that later!
Someone lock him up in Khara until he finishes 4.0 or he'll end like Sadamoto and his 17+ year old (and unfinished) manga!

Well, he'll at least get to speak actual words in this role instead of just meowing. :lol: It does make me wonder, considering Anno's history with Miyazaki, along with this role and the God Warrior short that Anno, once he finishes Rebuild, might actually become Miyazaki's heir apparent at Ghibli.

I doubt that. Anno got his own studio because he wanted to do whatever he pleases.
Ghibli has too much image/brand baggage. I'm sure he's more than willing to collaborate and we'll no doubt see Khara names in the credits of this and future Ghibli films, but he's just not gonna move house after his own new one is so well built up now.

Fuck yeah! Brad Bird's voice debut was amazing! (Oh, and he was also good as Edna in The Incredibles.)

Didn't realize it was posted here and I posted in news thread on anime section, but here's something.

http://kazetachinu.jp/character.html

Anno wrote:It's my first time voicing a main character, so I figured it wasn't going to be easy. At first Miya-san told me that the character was quite one and that there aren't lots of lines and I believed that. But after seeing the storyboard, I was surprised. There were ton of lines, songs, French, German. I felt like I was fooled.

:lol:

Also there is more of what he said in the link if you are interested.
