Ghibli World reports that Studio Ghibli will be animating Taneyamagahara no Yoru by Kenji Miyazawa (1896-1933). Buena Vista Japan will release the DVD paired with Gauche the Cellist, a story that is also by Miyazawa. The DVD release in Japan will be July 7, 2006 in honor of the 110th anniversary of Miyazawa's birth.
Kenji Miyazawa's classic, Milky Way Railroad, a story translated and published by Stone Bridge Press, has also been animated as Night on the Galactic Railroad.
