YOU MEAN THERE'S A DIFFERENCE?! D: I wonder which one I'd watched now. Let's see... it was a time of war... and something about this chick who was raised by wolves or something... and a town with a wall of wood on the outside. Ring a bell? I might be thinking of something else, though.
Well thank you! That's actually pretty helpful, haha! My anime wishlist is expanding, which is pretty cool.
- Grave of the Fireflies - The Girl Who Leapt Through Time - Voices of a Distant Star (With this, I may as well get the Shinkai collection, which includes The Place Promised In Our Early Days!) - Whisper of the Heart (Miyazaki)
...hell, I'll just say that I'm going on a Shinkai-Miyazaki-spree and call it good. X3
Well wyrd, you've never steered me in the wrong direction once (I'd argue LoH:PotMW, but I'd bought that prior to your input -- so that doesn't count!) so I'm taking your word for it and adding those to my list aswell. Alot of these are going for pretty cheap, so I'll be looking forward to one or two of these in the near future. :3
Pretty sweet deal, if you ask me; it also happens to be the *cheapest* thing on my list! :D
// PotMW wasn't BAD by any means, but it was definately missing that spark! I mean, I did like the personalities of Jurio, "Chris" (...and hated the name with a passion...), and the two bandits, but I'm certain that the execution of their respective personality traits could've been much better handled with a proper translation!
If Bandai-Namco ever releases another LoH, I'd bet dollars to donuts that it has an "I can has"/"lolcats" reference.

I've given Millennium Actress a watch, finally. (Since my TV was free.) It was very unique in its storytelling, and while the ending was generally depressing, I can't say that I was surprised or shocked, however, it left me with a good feeling by the time the credits began to roll. Partway through, I was reminded of "Memoirs of a Geisha" (although the simialarities were quite limited in that regard). I really like what they did with the "banshee" (as I'm inclined to call her), it provoked a depth of storytelling that I didn't expect. The key was almost cheesy in a way, but it served its purpose well. I was amused by the fact that they kept switching the sets, but I felt like that was more of a focus than it needed to be -- some sets felt like they were somewhat of a waste like some of the fight scenes in Advent Children. I give it a 7.25/10
