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.

Yay the same writer worked for me with Fushigi Yugi and Ayashi no Ceres but I just really don't like the animation in Ranma, it just bugs me. :( and I was so looking forward to it too because I liked InuYasha so much!
