Just Watched  
Grave of the Fireflies (Hotaru no Haka. Being at work, I can't render that in kanji).

Well, that was a bloody cheerful movie. Not to say it was a bad movie, but I don't think I was in the mood to see something so relentlessly light-hearted (not). Unfortunately, I didn't bring much in the way of DVDs to watch tonight, and my original plan to finish of Battlestar Galactica (or, at least, get up to date on it) was foiled by the fact that one of the episodes I was going to watch (the first, in fact, of four remaining) was corrupted and needs to be re-acquired.


Edit: now I'm at home, and I can: 蛍の墓.
In the mood: depresseddepressed

Yes, one of the packins for the special edition dvd soon to be released of Grave is a double dose of prozac.

Well, it's by no means the most depressing movie the Japanese have ever produced. I just wasn't in the mood to watch anything I had with me (still fuming over not checking the BSG download, or I could have avoided the whole thing).

Anyway, what they should package it with Totoro, since it was produced by the same company at the same time with many of the same animators (word is, sometimes the animators weren't sure which movie they were working on).

That's what they did theatrically; Totoro and Grave was a double-feature, but mainly because Totoro was an investment risk and Grave (well-known book) carried it.
