When I first heard about “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time,” I was unimpressed.  After all, the entire plot was revealed in the title and time travel is a common cliché.  Despite strong reviews and testimonial from friends, I dreaded watching it and procrastinated.  When I finally did watch it, I was pleasantly surprised.  After pondering this fact, I realized that I respected the quality of the direction and acting--the actual premise wasn’t as important as I had previously determined.

I explain this because it defines what I like about anime over other media.  Anime is a medium that can convey a wide variety of different themes and ideas.  So instead of liking one theme or genre (say fantasy),  I find myself respecting and admiring shows that are quality first (in terms of voice acting, animation, character development, direction, music, etc); the theme itself is less important.

This is definitely not for everybody, but I think you might be interested in this little collection of short and wonderfully enjoyable stories.

Without much thought, I've just booked myself a plane ticket to Toronto to make it to the Anime North convention! I heard that your friend Freewind will be going and was wondering if you were planning on tagging along; It'd be fun to meet up and have thorough conversations about anime we like and dislike =)

So what did you think of Utawarerumono?  I myself was surprised by the plot twist but really enjoyed how unusual it was. The characters were very interesting as well. I still have a hard time beleiving that Dori and Gura are males...

yeah I plan on watching it after I am done with Grappler Baki, that kinda has me tied up at the moment. I will have to look into tsubasa chronicles too, that is one of my fav's.
