Wolf Children Screening and Q&A with the director

April 15th, 2013


Remember when I first blogged about how I got to see Wolf Children Ame and Yuki in Osaka in July? Well After that Madman had a screening of Wolf children in Sydney, sometime in September, I think, and thats when most of my friends from the anime club went to watch it together. Of course I was with them, and I can say that I cried more the second time I watched it, then the first. Anyway, fast forward to today and here we are again, at a madman screening of Wolf Children. But it is no ordinary screening when you just get to watch the movie.

February 18th, 2013


Last thing I fully watched was Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 so I decided to write up a small review about it. I was warned that it is that kind of series that will make you feel very emotional for the characters. I can say one thing…. IT WAS!

ジブリがいっぱい Collection

February 8th, 2013

Ghibli BluRay disks

When I was in Japan in July of 2012, my friend Kosuke and I went to Tokyo for a few days (I blogged about it). We also visited the Ghibli museum in Mitaka. It was an awesome experience, but there is one thing I really regret not doing there. In the gift shop there were Soundtrack CDs (OSTs), DVDs and most importantly the new Ghibli collection BluRays! They were 7140円 a piece, which at the time I deemed to be too expensive for a BluRay at the time. But when I came back to Sydney, I realized that I seriously wanted them. Thats how I started my collection. First I got Nausicaa, then my amazing friend Frank gave me Totoro for Christmas and Laputa for my Birthday! It will take me a while to get all of the Ghibli BluRays, but I accomplish this goal I have set for myself. If anyone is interested, I order them from this website: cdjapan.co.jp

Tatami Galaxy review

August 3rd, 2012

Tatami Galaxy

Tatami Galaxy (四畳半神話大系) – an anime worthy of being called a classic! It is hard to describe the genre for this particular anime, but I’m guessing it would fall under the random / life / mystery. Even though it was only 11 episodes long, it is definitely a must watch for all anime lovers.

If you wish to continue reading, be warned that a lot of SPOILERS await!
