I got a chance to watch Howl’s Moving Castle at a special screening near USC yesterday, and it was quite enjoyable. Fortunately, it was subtitled; unfortunately, the picture was moving around for a siginificant amount of time. The University Village isn’t the best place to watch a cool movie, but it was free, so I’m […]

I always wondered what the deal with flowers on people’s heads is about. I can sort of understand one being on Onsokumaru’s head in the first pic since 2×2=Shinobuden is pretty silly.       Mahoromatic: Something More Beautiful is a serious drama highlighting the conflict of technology and nature. After I saw that pic, I lost […]

Seeing famous musical artists in anime isn’t that unusual, but it’s fun to look for them. The first two are from Gad Guard, and the third is from GTO.         As if that wasn’t enough, I thought I’d make one a Pic of the Week. Truly, you have seen into the murky and forsaken […]

I’m still not sure what a “MAIGE” is in Da Capo – probably an optical aberration that appears when an anime character tries to focus on distant objects. Speaking of physical defects, I ran across a curious thread talking about the physics lessons in Top wo Nerae! Gunbuster. Rakshasa sent me a link to an […]

I used to want to try some exotic French food, but the following sign from Jungle Wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu Final made me reconsider. I can always count on anime to give me accurate impressions of various world cultures – Chinees for the last entry and now the French. Who needs to read books […]
