Mirai opened in Hollywood at the weekend (Oct 19 to 21, 2018), and it seems that Mamoru Hosoda was at one of the screenings where he fielded some questions from the audience. In particular, he was...

I had already spoilt the story by reading the manga adaptation ahead of time, so I was curious to see how anime-only viewers would react to Episode 3. And I'm happy to find that it's been...

The pace of the Hakone Ekiden is indeed insanely fast, if everyone is running 5km in less than 14-and-a-half minutes.

We're talking about mostly amateur athletes here, and yet they're expected to...

Lol. As I had suspected, this show will potentially generate pseudo-philosophical musings such as these, and make for very interesting discussion.

That's a very nice theory you've put up, and it...

I agree. The pace should have been slower, to better allow the drama and tension to sink in. But it is what it is, and what we've got isn't that bad, so it's still good, in my view.

As for the...

After a number of disappointments from my sampling of this season's crop of shows, I was inexplicably intrigued almost right away from within the first few minutes of Seishun Buta Yarou.

I'm not sure how far we can take that as a reliable memory. Bear in mind that the mystery ayakashi didn't start to sound like Ginji until Aoi finally decided that it must have been him. So, it's...

It was indeed problematic for Jinzaburou to have survived the way he did. It was literally a deux ex machina scenario, which detracts greatly from the otherwise historically grounded fiction that the...

It's my suspicion that Odanna wasn't directly involved in saving Aoi as a child, based on hints from those who've read the novels, and also because of the the roundabout way that Ginji answered Aoi's...

Raiju referred to Odanna as "kijin", ie, 鬼神 (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%E9%AC%BC%E7%A5%9E), which literally means the "ghost spirit". 鬼 is the kanji for "oni", or ogre in Japanese (in Chinese it...
