Re: Anime Discussion Thread

just got the movie Paprika. i was really looking forward to this after the preview on Tekkonkinkreet.



Amazon.com
Based on a novel by the noted Japanese science fiction writer Yasutaka Tsutui, the brilliant and unsettling feature Paprika continues director Satoshi Kon's exploration of the disturbingly permeable boundaries between dreams and reality. Techno-geek Kosaku Tokita invented the DC Mini to allow therapists to enter a patient's dreams and explore his unconscious, but an evil cabal uses the Mini to create a mass nightmare that causes multiple suicides. Psychotherapist Atsuko Chiba uses her alter-identity, "dream detective" Paprika, to intervene. Entering the nightmare, she witness a bizarre parade of appliances, toys, and kitsch objects: All of her intelligence and imagination are needed to escape this nightmare and its perpetrators. As he did in Millennium Actress and Paranoia Agent, Kon effortlessly carries the audience between reality and fantasy, confirming his reputation as one of the most talented and interesting directors working in animation today. (Rated R: violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description
Prepare to enter the realm of fantasy and imagination where reality and dreams collide in a kaleidoscopic mindscape of sheer visual genius. The magical tale centers on a revolutionary machine that allows scientists to enter and record a subjectís dream. After being stolen, a fearless detective and brilliant therapist join forces to recover the device before it falls into the hands of a dream terrorist in this gripping anime thriller from acclaimed director Satoshi Kon.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

I have been really enjoying Blue Drop and Rental Magica, as of late. Both had their 8th episode ran this week.

If you are looking for a new, running series to start watching, I recommend both of them.

Oh, and this week's Dragonaut really pissed me off.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

I'm having a hard time finding Kiddy Grade volumes 2,4,6,7. I'll probably go to animecornerstore.com later and order them. They're anime is cheaper than anything you'll find in Suncoast.

Oh and has anyone heard of the movie Tekkonkinkreet? It looks killer. I'm looking foward to getting that also.

Seph has. Personally, I haven't. I am interested, but to be frank, I have been busy as hell, lately.

What do you look for in a show? There are tons of things I could recommend, but I would like to be able to hit your criteria.
