Oh boy….well what can I say about this movie? Its an emotional train wreck for your soul. Even in the bleakest situations your always wishing that good would come their way. In this movie you get to see what the world was like at the time in Japan. This story is dark and Miserable and very sad and leaves you feeling bad about it all.
The story is set in 1945 during the last few months of world war 2. A boy named Seita and his young sister Setsuko are left to finish gathering supplies and securing there belongings at home by themselves while their mother who has an Illness could flee to a bomb shelter and they would follow afterward. Of course tragedy hits and the siblings are left to fend for themselves. Trying to live with relatives, live on their own,Starving,stealing and just trying to live through the war.The end was not what I was expecting….It was honestly a shock to the system…. just very sad and emotional.
What I did like about it was the bond of the sister and brother. He would do anything for her to keep her safe and fed.The sister trusted him totally and also was optimistic about their situation some of the time. Seita carried around a tin can which held some fruit drops in it, but it held a symbolic meaning throughout the movie and finally at the end.Like I said its a sad movie, pretty gritty and miserable but it was a good watch if you can stomach what others had to go through at that time.
Again not everyone’s taste but I hope you can check it out as it is very underrated.
The secret world of Arrietty came out the summer of 2010 which honestly felt like yesterday for me. This movie was beautiful in every way! just the simplistic story and lovely characters and stunning animation. The movie is based off of the children’s book “The Borrowers” by Author Mary Norton. The book is about a family of small people who live in the in the walls and floors of a home and borrowing items from humans to survive.
Now in the movie its almost the same thing. The story is about a young girl who is a borrower who is excited to go out on her first borrowing mission with her father at night. Of course a small person lives in secret so they have to be careful not to be seen…..which of course ends up being the problem as Arriety is seen by a young boy who had come to stay in the house over the summer. Slowly the two begin seeing each other as the young boy gradually gains her trust. The ending just kind of leaves you to your imagination…which frustrates me because I like closure but I suppose not every movie can give us a gift wrapped ending. Just enjoy it for what it is and immerse yourself in a different point of view of looking at the world from a small persons perspective.
I recommend anyone to watch it! hope you enjoy it like I did!
Well I distinctively remember my disapproval of the announced Full Metal Live action film. I am back here to give you an update! They have finally released a trailer for the movie and it actually looks pretty good! Now I have been disappointed in the past…(Looking at you Dragon ball z) but I am willing to give this one a chance. I cannot read Japanese but we do know it will be coming out sometime next year! Check out the Trailer! let me know what you think!
And as always thank you for reading!
Its that time of year when kids go out trick or treating and people cover their homes with spooky decor. Anime has also done a good job in being a tad bit freaky with horror shows, but I am here shed some light on a few creepy Anime Openers. Some are scary, some are just down right disturbing. Without no further a do! lets begin…..
Another: Creepy much! Dolls moving…empty elevators…
In my many years of watching anime I sometimes take the advice of my friends to see what they are interested in. I get recommendations and of course I dive right in to the anime that I usually don’t think I would bat an eye at. Lets take a look at some of the ones I ended up watching due to my friends…..then ask myself why.
