On this episode of Nerd & Tie we discuss The Inhumans hitting the small screen, Hayao Miyazaki coming out of retirement (again), react to the American Ghost in the Shell trailer, consider the new series Neil Gaiman is developing for Fox, and put our heads together about the possibility of a Snowpiercer television series. We also talk about what a disaster Rewind Con apparently turned out being, and Nick went to Daisho Con.
Also, Pher has a very important announcement about his future at Nerd & Tie. It’s a big deal.

Studio Ghibli, best known for the works of Hayao Miyazaki, will be (for the most part) shutting down. As some of their more recent releases haven’t done so well (and rumors have been circulating for a while) this doesn’t come as a massive surprise.
It’s still disappointing though.
Studio Ghibli will no longer be producing new work, and will instead just manage its licenses and copyrights. While the possibility is still there long term for the doors to reopen, it’s very unlikely.
It’s a sad day, really.
