Anime Love  
versailles_rose just posted that she watched an anime movie today. So, I thought I would put in my two cents.

I love almost all japanese anime that I've seen. That includes Pokemon. My very favorite anime are the stories set in feudal Japan. I was thrilled the first time I saw a japanese demon in Princess Mononoke. (we're not in Kansas, or Oz for that matter, any more) All the cultural references are new. Miyazaki is the master. If I rent a DVD I play it in the original japanese and read the english captions.

I have discovered a lot of great anime on Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network. Tenchi, Ranma1/2, my current favorite Inuyasha half boy, half demon on a quest in feudal Japan with a modern day japanese school girl. Too funny.

Last night I happened upon the first episode of Samurai Champloo. I was riveted. My husband who was busy getting ready to go on a fishing trip with his brothers stopped what he was doing and watched it with me. It was irresistible. Great characters and good drawings, with lots of samurai sword play.
