The Wings of Goodbye – 3 years later

June 29, 2014

I’m like the Doctor, I don’t like endings. Yet the time had come to say goodbye to Macross Frontier, 3 years after I basically dropped anime.

Blame it on Pacific Rim and my wanting not to fail too hard on my japanese exam (it did pay off).

I’m glad to see my love for the Valkyries has never wavered. Unlike my interest in blogging. See you someday !

For your pleasure, the following song, still from my Japanese class. So delightfully old-fashioned.

Le Japon, fushigi !

February 22, 2011

I had the most interesting Japanese class ever at the end of last year. We listened to various songs, watched commercials, drama, a funny guy telling the story of Urashma Tarô… Some of it being available on YouTube, it’s sharing time.

First things first, the amazing Shirato family !!

Gotta love that dog’s – dad’s – accent.

Summer Wars in theatres partout

June 14, 2010

Once again, I benefited from a theatre experience for a non-Ghibli Japanese animation movie. Once again, it was well deserved.

Yes, we finally got around to having Summer Wars on French screens. Given that I didn’t quite follow the news in anime recently, I had just vaguely heard about this movie, always in good terms, so I figured it would be a good way to pretend to work for my Japanese test.

What’s it about ? There’s a boy, a girl, an online community, an evil hacker, frantic typing, a huge mansion in the Japanese mountains, a old woman’s 90th birthday, and baseball matches on TV. Yes, all in the same movie, no, it’s not a botched copy/paste. Here’s my try at a relatively spoiler-free introduction.
