Movies with werewolf are generally horror movies.  I never thought the word “cute” can be associated with werewolves.  Wolf Children / The Wolf Children Ame and Yuki (Blu-ray release 2013-2-20), however, are cute.  This animation is about a mother’s love and the difficulties she faced raising two werewolf children by herself in today’s society, and the children’s choices between being a human and a wolf.  I think these aspects are presented exceptionally well, and it is a joy to watch the wolf children being cute and funny when they’re really young.  Although this movie has nothing to do with Hayao Miyazaki, I’ll recommend this movie to Miyazaki movie lovers.
