Anime Watch List 4: When…..

When Marnie Was There

VERY VERY GOOD MOVIE.

Annie was a young girl who kept to herself and didn’t know her selfe worth. At the beginning of the movie she pointed that out herself, her mother who has taken her in felt because she wasn’t her biological mother was at fault for her not fitting in. After an asthma attack the doctor suggested she should stay with family outside of the city.

At first I thought that was wrong, but for Annie that was the best thing. She not only made a friend who helped her see her self worth, but realized she was totally loved. Even if that friend was a ghost.

She did meet some real live people as well and this story was one of the BEST new stories I have seen in a VERY LONG TIME!!

I  got tired of  looking for something new to watch, so I went back to two of my favorite anime. Whispers of the Heart was the first movie and the next one was called The Cat returns.

Whisper of the Heart

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Whisper of the Heart (Japanese: 耳をすませば, Hepburn: Mimi o Sumaseba, literally “If You Listen Closely”) is a 1995 Japanese animated coming-of-age romantic drama film directed by Yoshifumi Kondō and written by Hayao Miyazaki based on the 1989 manga of the same name by Aoi Hiiragi. It was animated by Studio Ghibli for Tokuma Shoten, Nippon Television Network and Hakuhodo. The film stars Yoko Honna, Issei Takahashi, Takashi Tachibana, Shigeru Muroi, Shigeru Tsuyuguchi and Keiju Kobayashi. It was the first theatrical Studio Ghibli film to be directed by someone other than Miyazaki or Isao Takahata.

Whisper of the Heart was Kondō’s only film as director before his death in 1998. Studio Ghibli had hoped that Kondō would become the successor to Miyazaki and Takahata.[2]

It was the only theatrical Ghibli film not directed by Miyazaki or Takahata for seven years until The Cat Returns was released in 2002, which focused on a minor character of the film, Baron. {}

I LOVE this movie and I LOVE this article I just read about it. If you want to look at an anime that has no fighting in it and a good story I hope you take a chance of this one as well as the second one. I am going to add that review here if anyone else would like to read it as well.

Review: Whisper of the Heart (Japan, 1995)

The film’s protagonists, Shizuku and Seiji.

It’s almost sinful how little this movie is known or seen. There is no doubt this is one of the most emotionally intricate, beautiful pieces to come out of Ghibli, and modern cinema in general. As Yoshifumi Kondo’s first and last project after tragically passing away, there’s no doubt we preemptively lost who undoubtedly would’ve been one of modern cinema’s greatest directors. So rare is a first attempt so wonderful.

The Cat Returns

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Cat Returns (Japanese: 猫の恩返し, Hepburn: Neko no Ongaeshi, lit. “The Cat’s Repayment”) is a 2002 Japanese animated fantasy[3] film directed by Hiroyuki Morita, produced by Toshio Suzuki and Nozomu Takahashi, written by Reiko Yoshida, based on the manga The Cat Returns by Aoi Hiiragi, with music by Yuji Nomi, animated by Studio Ghibli for Tokuma Shoten, Nippon Television Network, Hakuhodo, Buena Vista Home Entertainment, Mitsubishi and Toho and distributed by the latter company. It stars Chizuru Ikewaki, Yoshihiko Hakamada, Tetsu Watanabe, Yosuke Saito, Aki Maeda and Tetsurō Tamba. This is Hiroyuki Morita’s first and only film so far as director for Studio Ghibli.

A spin-off of Whisper of the Heart, it was theatrically released in Japan on July 20, 2002 through Toho and in 2005 in the United States through Walt Disney Home Entertainment.[4] It received an Excellence Prize at the 2002 Japan Media Arts Festival. GKIDS re-issued the film on Blu-ray and DVD on January 16, 2018 under a new deal with Studio Ghibli.[5]{}

The first one was better than the second, but it was something watching cats..

Well, that’s the end of another anime watched list from me, Lee*

Synopsis

The aloof protagonist: a bookworm who is deeply detached from the world he resides in. He has no interest in others and is firmly convinced that nobody has any interest in him either. His story begins when he stumbles across a handwritten book, titled “Living with Dying.” He soon identifies it as a secret diary belonging to his popular, bubbly classmate Sakura Yamauchi. She then confides in him about the pancreatic disease she is suffering from and that her time left is finite. Only her family knows about her terminal illness; not even her best friends are aware. Despite this revelation, he shows zero sympathy for her plight, but caught in the waves of Sakura’s persistent buoyancy, he eventually concedes to accompanying her for her remaining days.

As the pair of polar opposites interact, their connection strengthens, interweaving through their choices made with each passing day. Her apparent nonchalance and unpredictability disrupts the protagonist’s impassive flow of life, gradually opening his heart as he discovers and embraces the true meaning of living.

This is a new anime movie and I can’t wait to get n2 it. At first I was kind of upset, because someone (a guy) found another person’s personal book and read it. It is beyond rude to read someone’s else’s personal thoughts. As I continued to read the outlines of the story the girl (who owns the book)didn’t hold it against him and I am intrigued to find out why?

*A side note: Another question, one that wasn’t asked directly, but it was asked just the same. Looking forward to getting an answer….

Over an hour of my time wasted…. To say it didn’t end right wouldn’t be saying it  STRONG ENOUGH!!!  I am going to make sure I NEVER look at another of Yoru Sumino ever again….

If it had ended after he (Haruki)had left her (Sakura) house, then it would have ended better, but it didn’t. It ended with an unanswered question. One should NEVER end a movie, a book, or a story with an unanswered question.

Let me calm down and go back to one of my favorite animes and that would be D.N Angel – who couldn’t love Dark and Daisuke. That actually should be Daisuke and Dark, because there wouldn’t be a Dark if it wasn’t for Daisuke.  I have lost count on the times I have already watched this series. It has been a while and I don’t know all of the stories by heart, and that is a good thing.

It is also a good thing when you know you have seen some good animes. Animes are just like books, one can never judge a book by its cover, and one cannot stop reading different kinds of books. So, I will not stop watching new anime.. I can always go back to one I like to clear away what I Just closed my eyes too and try to forget that my time was wasted.

I was hooked just two minutes into this show. I liked the picture and so far it seems to be a good story. Well at least it is starting off that way. I can’t wait to get into it, and I hope I am right…

I may have to rethink what I wrote earlier, because there is more than one story going on and I am having a hard time keeping up with them. I am going to watch one more show and see if it’s worth watching the full series…

Synopsis

Hachiman Hikigaya is an apathetic high school student with narcissistic and semi-nihilistic tendencies. He firmly believes that joyful youth is nothing but a farce, and everyone who says otherwise is just lying to themselves.

In a novel punishment for writing an essay mocking modern social relationships, Hachiman’s teacher forces him to join the Volunteer Service Club, a club that aims to extend a helping hand to any student who seeks their support in achieving their goals. With the only other club member being the beautiful ice queen Yukino Yukinoshita, Hachiman finds himself on the front line of other people’s problems—a place he never dreamed he would be. As Hachiman and Yukino use their wits to solve many students’ problems, will Hachiman’s rotten view of society prove to be a hindrance or a tool he can use to his advantage?

Okay, after I just read this article on the story. I understand it a little more, because the guy always seemed out of place as if he didn’t want to be there. I have always said a book is better than the movie or in this case an anime show.

I guess it’s time to stop typing and see if I can get n2 this show as I work on my cross stitch project..

This was the first time I started a series in the middle a.k.a why I didn’t understand the story line and it’s cool for times when I don’t want to watch any fighting. 

Time to get back to One piece……
