Anime Relations: Gake no Ue no Ponyo
Seen latest work of Miyazaki, which left mixed feelings.

The visuals as always, was extremely well done, inventive, detailed. Sometimes breathtaking. Also, surprisingly, how Miyazaki tries to depict all what happens, from child's perspective. I am not sure, how it's seen by the eyes of child, but I am quite certain, that it might be seen just that way - light, colourful, detailed, magicky.

The story itself was somewhat less memorable, although, again - it could be classy from a child's point of view - as the main characters in the story are Sousuke, a 5 year old boy, and Ponyo - sea creature, who changes into cheerful girl of the same age. Ponyo was extremely cute and lovable child too - strongly reminded me of Satsuki from Totoro and also Mimiko from Panda Kopanda.

What was disappointing in this piece, it's Joe Hisaishi, whose score this time left me absolutely unimpressed. That's bearing the fact that I am huge fan of his other works.

All in all - solid work from the hands of master. Although light, it leaves a notion of something deeper beneath its surface, and therefore a desire to savour it again.

Anime Relations: Golden Boy
Too pervert of my tastes. Although fro the other side, there was also some positive moments, which saved this anime from being complete waste of time.
These things were:
1) Women (yes, there were actually women, and not children with womanly body)
2) Facial expressions, and some humor.
3) Last episode. Actually way better than previous five alltogether.

This is a test entry just to see the result. Maybe later there will be more interesting things.
