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.

Hello, it's been a long time since we chatted; I kind of disappeared from MSN when the new year started... Sorry about that! I'm currently in Ontario working on the sailboat, which will be put in the water before the end of the month. Other than that, I'm able to squeeze in a bit of time to watch anime here and there, and recently started watching Terra e... / Toward the Terra, which I'm really enjoying. How have you been doing?

Thanks for the comment on my Kurenai review.  I'm really glad you enjoyed the series.  It's definitely one of my favorites in the past year ^_^

Hmmmm it seems that the message I wrote earlier never got sent... I'll write it again then! (I hope this one gets sent...)

It's good to hear from you again ^^ I missed reading your reviews, and now I'm very interested in watching Bokurano. I've watched the movie of Lord of The Flies and after reading Bokurano's description, I have an idea of what you're trying to say. I really can't wait to watch it, and I'll let you know what I think of it once I've seen it ^^
