[QUOTE] Hurray for positivity! You never let me down! [/QUOTE] Well shucks. Thanks! [QUOTE]I agree with everything you said, but I was disappointed at what little emotional impact the movie had on me. I was touched by some of the images, but not so much in reference to the story itself. I was told "get ready to cry" before seeing the film, and it just didn't hit me. This is coming from someone who cries at sentai shows (and the afore mentioned Kaiba opening).[/QUOTE] Hmmm, telling someone how they should feel (vs how you personally felt) isn't always the best way to set up expectations. It's interesting the things that can make someone cry. I have to admit, i did shed a few wimpy tears at 5cm. I got swept up in the visuals and the sappy song at the end describing how when you are away from someone you are in love with you secretly hope to run into them wherever you go. I can see why you'd be more affected by a Sentai show though. There's a big difference between crying over a middle school relationship vs being moved to tears by the bravery of heroic men and women(manly tears!). [QUOTE] I assume you've heard of Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei? I don't think I've ever anticipated something so much. Have you seen Bakemonogatari? Trapeze (空中ブランコ)? They're both excellent and aggressively unique. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone, but I would definitely recommend both to you. [/QUOTE] All these shows look great. An old friend of mine has been telling me to watch Bakemonogatari, and I've had my eye on Trapeze cos it looks very much in the vein of Yuasa's recent work (I just hope it has its own distinct flavor). I hadn't heard of Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei though. A quick google search tells me that holy crap, it's the next Yuasa show! Cool! Really looking forward to this one. These days I mainly rely on a few news agregate sites, blogs and the cafe to stay up to date with things. So thanks very much for the recommendations!
