UPDATE: I saw the lengthy Japanese trailer of GIS2 on the go fish site. Wow, they really worked on the CGI on this one to the point that everything looks polished. Slo-mo, John Woo doves, noir, bullet time, spinning Matrix camera mode. Hmm. Hollywoodly spectacular The Professional meets Terminator and then some. Now am wondering if I'll actually like it without the fireworks and the hype.

Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence I wanna, wanna, wanna watch!

"The staff at Production I.G are the very best in Japan, and they have poured their hearts and souls into making Innocence. We spent three years on actual production, and if you count the time spent in preparation, this piece has been our obsession for five years now." Oshii pride in the team's accomplishment is obvious as he continues, "I think Innocence: Ghost in the Shell is the absolute pinnacle of Japanese animation." As with Oshii's other films, Innocence is full of enigmatic references and mind-bending twists and turns. The visual effects are almost dizzying, and the story unfolds in complex, criss-crossing layers. The script is woven with deftly inserted references to the Old Testament and the Analects of Confucius. Meanwhile, a confident familiarity with Western architectural tradition informs the lush background artwork. - from Asia Pacific Perspectives, May 2004
Anime blitzed with bunch of Studio Ghibli DVDs (too bad I couldn't afford the 850 peso Miyazaki set in Quiapo.) My Neighbor Totoro, Only Yesterday, Ponpoko, and The Cat Returns. Next on me GHills list: GIS: Standalone Complex season 1. Missed all those Animax episodes.

Next Next Attraction from Ghibli: Howl's Moving Castle.

About us

Best described as a Murakami detox support group, we're all fans of the quirkily brilliant Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, and writing about such things as films we've seen recently and books we're reading (not to mention meandering musings on the man's work, of course) helps us to pass time while waiting for the next book from Haruki-baby.
