(06) Anime (アニメ)

Anime means Japanese cartoons, not to be confused with Western cartoons, which I do watch too.

Big surprise I am also an avid anime watcher and collector. Anything by Hayao MIYAZAKI (宮崎 駿) esp. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (風の谷のナウシカ Kaze no tani no Naushika) [1984] or My Neighbor Totoro (となりのトトロ Tonari no Totoro) [1988]. I really love the way he draws his characters and the life he gives them.

Unless unavailable, I watch all anime in Japanese with English subtitles. I watch many series, such as InuYasha
(犬夜叉), on TV so these are all in English and eventually I will go back and re-watch them all in Japanese. I am very behind in watching Bleach (ブリーチ), so I plan to catch up tonight or should I say overnight.

Hayao Miyazaki's works are amazing! He makes the characters come to life in a way that I haven't seen others able to recreate. The way he creates worlds is visually stunning as well.

Hehe, I'm super behind in Bleach as well. I need to set aside time to get caught up, but with so many interesting series out it can be difficult.
