I promised you anime movie rcommendations . . .

<<<<<Priss Asaguri-Bubblegum Conspiracy

A couple of posts back, I was pushing you all to get into anime (manga) if you haven't already. Here are four classics to get you started. I recommend that you listen the Japanese original and watch English subtitles.

1. Ninja Scroll - 1995 - Yoshiaki Kawajiri - Jubei, a masterless ninja travels the land alone, hiring his services to those with gold or a worthy cause.

This film features a wicked cast of characters, extraordinary fight scenes and stunning animation. Guys, you will love this one, especially Kagero, a female ninja whose touch can bring instant death!

2. Ghost in a Shell - 1996 - Mamoru Oshii - Major Motoko Kusanagi is an elite officer in the Section 9 Security force. A cybernetic agent so heavily modified that little more than her ghost remains . . .

Kusinagi along with fellow cyborg Bateau and the mostly human Togusa are set on the trail of a computer criminal - The Puppet Master. Guys and hip chicks will be enthralled by this one!

3. Spirited Away - 2001 - Hayao Miazaki - This 2wondrous fantasy is about a young girl, Chichiro who becomes trapped in a world of spirits. When her parents undergo a mysterious transformation, she must summon up courage she never knew she had to free herself an return her family to the outside world.

Excellent! Everybody except small children will enjoy this classic. The variety of spirits that Chichiro encounters are based on Japanese folklore. See it!

4. Princess Mononoke - N/A - Hayao Miazaki - A young warrior named Ashitaka, inflicted with a deadly curse, sets out to the forests in the west in search of a cure. He discovers a proud class of humans led by Lady Eboshi. Princess Mononoke, a young woman raised by wolves, leads the animal gods in a bitter battle against Lady Eboshi's clan. Which side will Ashitaka fight for?

A must see for teens to adults, male or female. A thoroughly engrossing film that was dubbed by Gillian Anderson, Billy Crudup, Claire Danes, Minnie Driver, Jada Pinckett Smith and Billy Bob Thornton. If I could only recommend one anime film, this is the one. You gotta see it!

Sigh . . . I don't like Mondays either. My disposition wasn't up to snuff, nor was my brain. I do have some good news for you! I received a couple of replies today, temporarily erasing on of the big fat goose eggs on my scoreboard! However, I must remind myself not to contact divorcees . . .

Girls on Girls 3 - Soooo many gorgeous ladies are looking for other women. What has this world come to! Look out guys, we're on the verge of extinction! Get your body waxed and get your strap-on ready! LOLOL]
