I guess it is good for anime. It did look amazing. I'm thinking anime is just not my thing. Why do so many have to be about demons and spirits? I just can't relate. It was a real struggle for me not to fall asleep in the middle of it. No matter how hard I try, I always seem to find anime a bit too ridiculous.

Unbelievably amazing movie. I first saw this before it was translated while with a dear friend. I next saw the preview screening only to discover Neil Gaiman was sitting behind me (he adapted the English translation). Very cool guy to talk about it briefly.

Watched it again tonight (for maybe the 5th or 6th time). So beautiful. And the music is perfect.

The kiddos loved it. First time for them.
