Not all is normal in Tomobiki, even by its standards. The students have been preparing feverishly for the first day of the student fair, which is scheduled to go on the next day. However, problems arise when some begin to notice that the next day simply will not come. As the students begin to try to find the reason for the problem, their beliefs about reality and the world of dreams are challenged.

Ah yes, the only Urusei Yatsura movie people actually give a shit about. Let's talk about it. So, here's a funny joke, I drew a complete blank when writing this review. Talking about this film is going to be difficult for me, and I'm not going to summarize the film like I did for the previous one. I will talk about the premise of the film, however.

Within the first five minutes of the film, it's ...

In my early days of anime fandom, Rumiko Takahashi was probably the first mangaka whose works I was heavily into. My favourite of her manga series? Maison Ikkoku. When it comes to anime adaptations though, Urusei Yatsura would top my list.

It says something about Mamoru Oshii as a director, that he is able to achieve something like making this film and not compromise on the humour and tone that run through UY as a whole. All the elements that this film introduces just astounded me upon first viewing, as most hollywood films similar to this weren't to come along for 9 years (groundhog day being ...

Mixed Feelings
So, obviously the main reason I watched this without watching the show was because Mamoru Oshii directed it. But it was also available in English on Amazon Prime when I had other things I needed to do, so that made doing so pretty convenient. It's a good movie. I just felt like I was missing a lot because I didn't know the characters and it's a very characterization-driven story. It seems like it's almost fair to say the story doesn't make sense if you don't understand Lum's dynamic with the rest of the cast. At it's most basic level, it's not too complicated. But, on ...

Top 20 Series With The Most Beautiful Anime Art

It is easy to say that the most beautiful anime are those produced by Studio Ghibli. For sure, Ghibli’s films set the bar for what is anime art. However, although five of their films populate this list of the 20 most beautiful anime, other examples from the past four decades are just as impressive.
