The first release of the film in an English speaking country will be titled Ocean Waves according to the UK BBFC website. The book still hasn't been released as an English translation yet... does it's title carry precedence in this case, or does the UK film release title take over? Should this article be renamed as a result? David Bailey (talk) 21:14, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
I couple of weeks ago I saw that the BVA stated that it was pulled from schedule, I contacted Optimum Releasing and they stated that it will be released in 2010 to accompany the theatrical release of Ponyo in the UK. Tmvde (talk) 19:45, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
The links i have given were from a site that was one of the very important site related to the topic. In that case it was about studio ghibli. Now the link i have given was from onlineghibli.com which is no less popular than nausicaa.net if not more. And there is no need to promote the site as it is even more popular than the nausicaa.net and it is the first result in the search engine.And i absolutely know about the no-follow system or rule of wikipedia.And that site actually verifies the character list as it actually gives pictures of the artists and it has many other infos like music pieces etc.And this site also has been there for 10 years so it is one of the most important reference site to the topic. The problem is i do not know how to use the reference template[and also do not have access to] that is why i needed to give the external link. We all need to improve wikipedia so review my suggestion.Nibir2011 (talk) 16:30, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
What we have right now is far beyond what can reasonably be called a summary. The objective is to describe the major plot points, not to provide an abridged screenplay. People should still have a reason to watch the movie after reading. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 13:40, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
The first version of the plot section was twice that length and was written before the film was made available in the US, so that American Ghibli fans could read about and understand the film. Once the US DVD release came out, we trimmed it down. The being said... it may be due a bit more editing to bring it under the recommended 700 words. David Bailey (talk) 12:30, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
Plot has now been trimmed down to 800 words. Anyone else fancy a go? David Bailey (talk) 12:08, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
