    I've seen this in the past, and even bought a copy for a friend, but for the life of me, I can't remember the title.

    Any suggestions for how to search for this on Netflix or Google would be appreciated too. I checked all the foreign sci fi on Netflix and didn't see it. And I tried to search for "Japanese science fiction like E.T." on Google, and got a lot of E.T. references, but not the one I'm looking for. Might start with an "h" ...
