We do have - well, Shane has! - the 25th episode; it does contain some new footage, if I remember rightly, despite being a flashback episode. I did ask Enoki whether they had the full, uncut versions of the series (i.e. the UK version) but they never got back to me on that point. Might be worth a chasing email. I find it a little strange that Toru never mentioned more episodes being filmed than the 25, although language is obviously an issue there.Personally I think it's more likely that 32 were planned had the series been successful but the show ran out of money and time at 25. Remember, they were having major hassle just getting the 25 produced, even with flashback episodes... But, it would be very interesting to see storyboards if nothing else.Mark, can you tell us how exactly Ghibli are involved with the production, because they don't appear on any credits I know of and Ghibli are better known for "pure" anime?
