Our scores are way the fuck different, apparently we only have 17.6% in common, so normally I'd reject the hell out of your friend request. But you said you liked my comments on an old-school anime, which is two wins in my book, you're a fellow old-school fan and you requested me after reading my comments rather than looking at my score or anything like that. Plus, anyone who puts Rose of Versailles in their top 5 is a worthy friend in my book!

Since you rate the Rose so highly, might I implore you to watch Brother, Dear Brother as soon as you possibly can? Same director, same mangaka, same type of story, but with all 3 significantly evolved from that time in the 70's. It's truly wonderful, and one of my all-time favorites.

I liked the Soderberg version too! I should read the book. I was glad I saw Tarkovsky's first, because I don't think watching them in the other order would have worked as well. It's frustrating that a lot of fans (at least on IMDb) don't see value in Soderberg's film, just because he narrowed his focus to the husband/wife story.

Brings to mind the (less artistically deep) situation with some Macross fans and the currently airing Macross Delta, which I skipped ahead to even though I've only seen SDF Macross, because I like watching anime as it airs. Some say its "magical girl" idols singing on the front lines aren't true to the tone and strengths of Macross, and I can see their point, but I'm loving it.

Cool. Maybe I should start with those so I don't have to sit through the crazy 60's/70's Godzillas first :)

I can deal with slow-paced - Solaris is pretty slow, there's a five-minute section of just driving on highways in 70's Japan, which looked like the future to Soviet audiences at the time. :D https://www.quora.com/In-the-Tarkovsky-film-Solaris-what-is-the-deal-with-the-overly-long-highway-scene-through-Tokyo/answer/Graeme-Shimmin

Thank you :) Of those the only ones I've seen are Seven Samurai (and that wasn't even for school) and the first Godzilla. I'd like to see every Godzilla eventually... mainly Final Wars. :D

Now you've got me curious especially about Ozu and Taste of Tea... maybe I'll take a break from anime sooner than planned.

Likewise, glad you're a Big Finish fan. I wish they'd have a Netflix-like rental service, I can't buy their entire library. :D

So which live action Japanese films would you recommend? I majored in film studies in college, but to my surprise there wasn't much actual film study involved, and I've never watched a lot of foreign films. After watching the original Solaris, I plan to fix that, whenever I'm reasonably caught up on anime, which may take another year or so.

My favorite Japanese live action film of the handful I've seen is The Snow Woman. Very magical.

Awesome, Pertwee is my favorite - well him or Paul McGann, from the Big Finish audio dramas. :) I was glad he was chosen to be the Doctor in that fan-made "anime" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kt3qZYUPi2Y ) and young fans in the comments say "The Doctor doesn't fight people! The Doctor wouldn't swordfight the Master!" XD

Cool. For the longest time I thought Gundam was a sterile, joyless hard sci-fi/political thing that I wouldn't be able to get into, so I'm glad that's not the case at all. Well, maybe Gundam Wing is, from what I've heard. :D

Great, I hope you love it :) I haven't started Harlock yet myself.

Hi, I hope your name means you're a Jon Pertwee fan? :) I took a tour of old Doctor Who a few years ago, and I'm trying to do the same with classic anime now. I've been on a similar trajectory to you - I finished Gundam 0079 a month ago, have been watching Macross, and just started Zeta. (But I'm slow because I watch multiple shows at once.) My eventual goal is to watch Unicorn and Thunderbolt; I love watching new installments after seeing the old first. I did that with Doctor Who and it really paid off.

I saw what you wrote about the special feeling of classic anime and I agree - for me there's a sort of feeling of nostalgia for memories I don't actually have. What I've seen of Leiji Matsumoto's work does it more than anything, it's just magical. Ever seen the 2003 classic-style music film he directed for Daft Punk? IMO it's a fantastic use of 67 minutes. I didn't even like that Daft Punk album before I saw it, but now I love it.
