[QUOTE] Hell yeah! Wasn't it a blast? I'm so glad you recommended it, mate. Studio 4 C is awesome, and I loved how hilariously nonchalant Watanabe was...I just dropped by afterwards to say yo and figured it'd be casual just like him, but then on a whim I got a pic with him, how cool. [/QUOTE] Aha! I'm glad someone else made it out there. It really was a blast in every sense. Watanabe was awesome, very down to earth. I got to talk with him briefly and take a pic with him too. Nice guy, very soft hands haha. I also got to meet Koji Morimoto, which was a HUGE deal for me. I sat right behind him in the theater. I did a double take when i saw him. He didn't speak english (and I don't speak Japanese), but he was kind enough to do a drawing for me in my sketchbook. I saw him again the second night, this time armed with a copy of [URL=http://derceto.web.elte.hu/japanimania/orange.html]0range[/URL], and he drew a complete illustration in there for me! I'm so impressed that these creators are so approachable and friendly. It gives me another level of admiration for them. Did you go the second night? They played Genius Party Beyond, which was a different set of films, and I liked them even more than the first set. They had some of the most incredible animation and direction I've ever seen. They were just gorgeous, visually, aurally and thematically. What I loved about all the films is that each one so completely embodied the style of the director. They were so personal without necessarily being autobiographical. Genius indeed! I also went to 5cm this morning, which was also astoundingly good looking. I mean, it wasn't just technically impressive, it was really evocative. You could feel the temperature coming off the screen! I've heard some people complain that the stories were a little boring, or melodramatic, but it was a story about young love, you know? It made me feel like being a kid in love for the first time again. I actually cried a little at parts!
