    Hard to say - it had it's ups and downs, but I think it improved once the introductions ended and the story started to idle along.

    Konohana Kitan

    Episode 3

    Another solid 10/10 episode. This shows now been given a placeholder in my Top 10 Slice of Life shows... you get one clue what position

    Answer: Its been put to No.1 on the grounds of enjoyment over the first 3 episodes, this could of-course change as its still quite early on but if you're going to ask me to describe a perfect series (Not only Slice of Life... Anime Series in general) then Konohana Kitan would be

    There goes all my credibility (if I had any to begin with)it

    Shame the manga never seemed to complete as the anime ends about 2/3rds of the way through (I believe all we got over here manga wise was all that was done).

    Pefect Blue (Rewatch)

    While this is the 4th/5th time I've watched this film, being at the cinema was a totally different experiance, I forgot how messed up some of the scenes were. It was well worth going to see

    I first saw Perfect Blue 15 years ago and I too had forgotten how graphic it was when I saw it again at the cinema last night.

    There is misdirection as the film progresses but the conclusion is well crafted.

    I can interpret the last line/shot in three different ways which if deliberate, is intriguing.

    The animation is really smooth and thorough in places but is juxtaposed with shots of very limited movement. There is a conversation at the beginning of the film between three men and only their mouths move the entire time. Also the colours seemed faded which I'm guessing is due to this being a straight transfer of the original film.

    However this is a clever and entertaining film.

    Konohana Kitan Episode 5

    You know that moment when you get a tear in your eyes. Not because something sad, but because you just watched something /that/ beautiful you're lost for words

    That sums up that episode

    Edit--

    Decided to go for a Hidive Sub

    Girls Last Tour Episodes 1-3

    The Ancient Magus' Bride: Those Awaiting a Star

    I watched Part 1 a while back so decided to rewatch that, and watch all parts

    Lovely little series, well worth watching if not a little depressing. 9/10

    :'(

    Plastic Little

    Really enjoyed watching this OVA, Animation was well done and loved the designs. Also a nice level of Cel drawn nudity, Guess I can say that ;)
    7/10 (8/10 for artwork)

    Black Magic M-66

    On the same DVD as Plastic Little was Black Magic M-66. Terminator meets anime? Some great action from this one. While I do think the droid designs could have been a little better, still non-less a good watch
    6/10

    Black Magic M66 is the whole reason Shirow licensed his stuff for others to animate. He was really disappoint with how this one turned out under his direction. I seem to remember understanding his point of view when i first saw it.

    I'm now rewatching Azumanga Daioh for the umpteenth time; it is as funny as ever. I'm also watching the second season of Rosario and Vampire for the first time.

    Frozen (Japanese Language w/English Subtitles)

    Love this film. Third rewatch

    For me one of the stronger LGBT Disney films, For the First time in Forever and Let it Go being two songs that always make me think :(

    Quoted from For the first time in forever
    While its understandable that this should be taken (in the context of the film) Elsa needs to control her magic, the meaning of both these songs can also be seen as how Family/Friends isolate or control LGBT people to be seen as /Normal/ to society


    Also... Someones going to point out this isn't anime and should be put in the Films Section. Yep but I try and keep the two media together for Viewing Journal things. Especially when I've watched them dubbed in Japanese

    Grinding through Princess Resurrection. It's not bad though the minute I saw Hime I had a feeling it'd be Ayako Kawasumi doing her voice. A bit generic so far with most episodes following a monster of the week format but it's interesting enough to keep up for 26 episodes, I think.

    A big step up over The Rolling Girls which abjectly ruined an interesting concept in every way.
