For a relatively new anime fan, I've seemingly been around. My interests keep broadening and in the years to come, I hope to enjoy more Japanese culture through any available media. This coming September, I'll be spending three weeks in Japan with my siblings, so I'm sure that trip will make me love all of this even more.
If you're interested in Saiyuki fanfiction, check out my epic creation at fanfiction.net. Same handle, entitled "SW: Impressions". Co-written by my sister, ShikamaruRocks, who thought up the initial concept, this fic gets the job done.

I'll be doing my best to switch over to the new site, so find me there.

Apparently I've quickly become one. Within the last 5 days, I've watched 7 Ghibli films, 5 of which I'd never seen before. One of them (obviously) was Grave of the Fireflies, but the other new ones were Laputa, Porco Rosso, Pom Poko and The Cat Returns. And I simply had to rewatch Princess Mononoke and Howl's Moving Castle.
Why am I devouring movies like a starved goat you ask? Because I'm stuck watching two repulsive pugs in a hugely oversized fancy-shmancy home that's just been sold and so has nothing but a computer and dinky tv with dvd player in it. And because back in the day I bought a (boot-legged >,<) Ghibli collection and hadn't found the time to watch most of them. Well, now all I have is time, so there you go.
Now I'm off to use a free movie pass and see Jumper with the mother-person. I hope it has something to it besides special effects. I guess I'm about to find out.

I got 1st place in the caption contest. Go me!
I just watched Grave of the Fireflies, something now I realize I should have done a long time ago. I think it could possibly be the most depressing thing I've ever seen. I mean, Schindler's List was a downer, but at least it had some good points, like saving people and giving others hope. Grave of the Fireflies was strictly depressing. But I still think it's one of the best and most worthwhile films I've ever seen. You should all go out and watch it. Just, be sure to wait a while if you've just had a death in the family. It won't exactly lighten your mood.
