Episode 937 - Anpan's Friend

Anpan's Friend

Well, I've got this friend...

At least Anpan tries to be discreet about such things. :D

This past Sunday, we had a chance to see "Wolf Children Ame & Yuki" on the big screen as part of the Hawaii International Film Festival. It came out earlier this year in Japan, but this was the US debut.

We're fans of Mamoru Hosoda's work like "Summer Wars" and "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time", so we had somewhat higher expectations. This film did not disappoint - it was just that good. I'm glad we had a chance to see it on the big screen -- because there are so many little details you'd probably miss while watching on a smaller TV screen.

Are there any movies you'd ♥ to see on the big screen? New or old? :D

Personally, I'm hoping the three Madoka Magica movies will make it to the Hawaii International Film Festival's Spring showcase. :D

    Just had to say that anpan's expression of desperation/exasperation in frame 3 is PERFECT. Made me laugh.

    Waaaah--- new film from Mamoru Hasoda?!?! I ADORE his work! I only discovered it recently when Summer Wars had a brief run at our local independent cinema.... Which has since been bought out by a different company and does not seem to be showing quite as much interesting stuff. :'( [This is hugely annoying, as the cinema is VERY close and has a parking lot. Not to mention an /excellent/ little trattoria across the street. Hmph! Darn you, Sundance!]

    I wish I'd read this comic sooner -- its not very likely I'll find a showing of the new film in town now... and if it's anything like Summer Wars it would be better even if only on a ten foot screen....
