2010 Aug 31“The Girl Who Leapt Through Time” looked pretty good so I watched it with Bay and Koa. They liked it, and I loved it! I thought the animation was super, with lots of attention paid to small details like when the main characters played catch at the field, they really moved realistically, not flawlessly. There are plenty of cool little scenes of everyday things, like little snapshots of daily life. A little bit artsy but I like that kind of stuff. The story is interesting too, sort of a time-travel plot mixed in with a teen love story. Not really mushy but there are a couple scenes that are pretty emotional. Mariko was telling me that she saw the original live-action movie when she was a kid, so she was familiar with the story. I haven’t watched it yet, but I have to say that the anime version is something that I would definitely recommend!

This silent film remake of a scene from “The Empire Strikes Back” is great. I love the music.

My favorite scene from my favorite movie. It makes me happy that I have this film on my G1 phone!

If you are in need of a public Notary, check with your local bank. Our Capital One has a notary service that is free for its customers. So convenient! I also read that you can check with your local library as some of them also provide the service. Can save a bit of lunch money.

While looking through the Aerostich catalog I noticed they were selling an anime named “Kino’s Journey”. I checked for it on Netflix and saw that the 15 episode series was available so I put it in my queue. The story is about a traveler, Kino, and her talking motorcycle, Hermes. They travel the semi-fictitious world, stopping and visiting many different countries. These countries vary in size, technology, and culture. Each episode is a small self-contained story and usually has some insight into human behavior. I found the series to be pretty interesting, sometimes shocking, sometimes funny. But most of all, I enjoyed the motorcycle footage. It looked like a cool “motorrad”. The opening and closing theme songs are really good too. When I was riding my motorcycle last week, I couldn’t get the opening song out of my head!
