    Grave of the Fireflies - 6/10 (fine)

    This has been on my watchlist for years, but I never had a chance to see it since it wasn't available anywhere. Not on Netflix, not on VRV, nowhere legal. Today, I went to the theater to watch this month's Ghibli film by Fathom Events (still running tomorrow subbed and on Wednesday dubbed!).

    It was fine. There really isn't that much else to say here; what you see is what you get folks. It was quite saddening to see that these people starving to death simply because all of the people they could rely on had either already died, or were unreachable. Even after the war was over, relief wasn't distributed across Japan immediately, and those without any money left...

    The sound effects were really something to hear; I'm not sure if it was because the movie was mixed the way it was, or if it had to do with the speakers in the theater, but you could very distinctly feel the SFX. When the coins are dropped on the ground, the thud really comes through, which was quite surprising since I hadn't heard a game or a show with that much impact in its SFX for a long, long time.

    That's it. Next up: The Hogfather (just got on Netflix DVD), and to continue Hunter x Hunter (on episode 46).

    Honestly, feels like you didn't really watch the movie if this is all you had to say. You gave it a meager 6/10 and you haven't really even explained why it's only 6/10. Compared to your other "reviews", this barely qualifies as an opinion.
    Often updated... ?

    So this made me happy. Teamfourstar, makers of Dragon Ball Z Abridged and many other things (including a solid Let's Play channel) announced like a year ago that they were doing an official dub, for the movie Hells.

    Welp, the trailer and cast list are finally here.

    Per KaiserNeko
    of our actors are in the film. There are some characters who haven't been announced yet, but there's more of us than what has been credited so far.

    Remix/WeeklyTubeShow is one of the main characters, Mario, and he plays our Kami/Android 16. Chris Guerrero is Who, and he plays our Dr. Gero and Cooler. Martin Billany plays Rokku, and he's... well, LittleKuriboh, so he hardly needs to be introduced, but he also provided the voices of our Narrator and Freeza. Corinne Sudberg plays Luca, and she's our Bulma/Puar/Chiaotzu. I'm in there as Pandaz, and I also wrote the initial ADR script and helped cast the production.

    Hellvis is played by Jason Marnocha, who provided the voice for Dr. Wheelo for us. Howard Wang has provided several voices for us, Amber Lee Connors is our Android 18, Sarah Ann Williams is our Tifa in FFVIIIMA, and they all play Ryu, Rei, and Kiki respectively.
    So it's not him and Lani doing a bunch of crazy voices like people might have thought, this is a real thing

    It absolutely is an opinion. If I said it was simply "fine" to me and only gave a few sentences about what I liked about the film, then it means that I didn't find much worth talking about that set it aside from an average film.

    I think BennettTheSage said it best: there's simply not much of substance here to dig in to. What you see is what you get; the characters aren't fleshed out, and the "story" is pretty much a simple snapshot of these two children's life after the firebombing. There isn't much to take away and think about.

    @Val the Moofia Boss There is something that I've been curious about for some time now. Whenever you review the series you've just watched you also seem to have the reviews of anime youtubers or others at hand.

    Do you decide the shows you watch based on reviews you come across, or do you use them to consolidate your own thoughts on those shows after you watched them?

    If it's a straight up "review", then I look for them after I finish an episode, movie, or series. Same with episodic discussions, which I go hunting for after I finish an episode. I use them to see what the general consensus about a show is, as well as to see what I missed or if there are opinions that elaborated on my own.

    If it's a "why you should watch this anime" or "what this anime does well compared to other anime", such as SuperEyepatchWolf's video on why you should watch Hunter x Hunter or read Berserk, then I've usually seen it before I've seen the actual series.

    I hadn't seen or read anything on Grave of the Fireflies specifically before I saw the film, simply because it really isn't talked about outside of an occasional thread on r/movies or r/anime.

    Aside from it being one of the most highly respected, talked about and referenced animated movies of all time?

    An emotional experience so powerful that it forces a rethinking of animation.

    You see, Bennet critiqued it in a very specific way to offer an alternative viewpoint and perspective of the film. His point is that there wasn't much substance beyond that of human plight.

    As a display of personal emotion regarding its subject matter, it's widely viewed as a masterpiece of the human condition.
