TV Fact #348 – October 6th, 2015:

The 1993 Japanese anime television film “Ocean Waves”, based on the novel of the same name by author Saeko Himuro,  was the first Studio Ghibli anime directed by someone other than Hayao Miyazaki or Isao Takahata. Director Tomomi Mochizuki, who was 34 years old at the time, was brought in instead. The film was an attempt to make anime solely by the young staff members, mostly in their 20’s and 30’s, with the studio’s motto in making the film being to, as they put it, produce “quickly, cheaply and with quality”. Irony? The film ultimately went over budget and over schedule.

Well…you can’t always get it right.
