Well I've been sick for the past week so what better time than to catch up on some anime? So comes up the recent release by Disney MY Neighbor Totoro
written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Here is a whimsical tale of two young sisters, Satsuki and Mei, who move with their father to be closer to their mother who is ill and in the hospital. One day while Satsuki is at school, Mei goes exploring the property and discovers Totoro's nest in the giant tree in the nearby woods. Though the adults pretty much humor her when she describes Totoro, thinking it's just her childish imagination acting out some myths. This is just a sweet tale about these girls with how they cope with their mother's illness and dealing with day to day life.
This new two disc release by Disney features redubbing with Dakota and Elle Fanning, Tim Daly, Pat Carroll, and Frank Welker. The Fanning sisters play really well off of each other as can be seen in Behind the Microphone featurette. This set also includes An Insider's Look at the Film's Artistry, Original Japanese trailer, Clean Opening and Closing. A wanted feature not included on the Troma version is the option of Japanese with English subtitles.
This movie was much loved during it's original release as can be seen with the mascot for Studio Ghibli. Now, I can only recommend it to be loved further with this new release.

ugh it's March already! I got off my lazy butt to take a look at my blog here and noticed I got spammed on my wallpapers! grrrrr, and it wasn't like once or twice it was on pretty much EVERY wallpaper entry. ok, ok, just venting. course I deleted all of it so that made me feel better. FEEL THE POWER!! lol. Anyway, that out of the way. I'm almost done with Dragon Quest VIII on the PS2, I think. I've pulled over a 100 hours on this game. I like the story and the graphics (even though the characters resemble DBZ characters so it's in the air whether or not you like that). But right now I'm trying to level up and play around with the alchemy pot where you can differnt items, weapons, armor etc. by mixing 2/3 together. But more on that when I finish it. I'm going to go through my screencaps this week and make up some wallpapers (TSUBASA CHRONICLE!!!). so keep an eye out for them. Now I'm tired, going to bed, lol.
