TDSA takes on a ninth Ghibli movie! :thumbsup: Not going to say what it is, but lets just say Mario wouldn't have a certain power with his tanuki suit. Randy from South Park could though.

Pom Poko = MEH
ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

I liked pom poko, there's nothing groundbreaking or anything about it, but it was a fun movie.

Pom Poko = Awesome!

I loved that movie! It was adorable and heart-breaking. It's my favorite Ghibli movie next to Kiki's Delivery Service and Spirted Away.

@Xard: What's wrong with balls to your face? I like some balls to my face!

never said there was anything wrong with that

the problem with Pom Poko is that I really wanted to murder all those annoying cretins

Name: Pom Poko

Why the hell I am watching this: Cracked's article on "most traumatizing events in children's movies" and it somehow made it to number 1.

What the hell I am watching: A fictional documentary on racoons losing their homes.

Art Style: Very pretty at times, possibly even their best after Nausicaa and Porco Rosso.

Pacing: Definitely good.

Moments Worth Remembering: Pretty much most of the movie was this.

Enjoyability: Far more enjoyable than I thought it would, if you can get passed raccoon testicles it's definitely entertaining. Strangely enough I can't tell if it ended as bittersweet or happy.

Yeah, the film is pretty good if you can get past the testicles. Glad to hear that you liked it, TDSA-Kun!

The testicles are much smaller in Pom Poko than they should be.

So in one final recap here is how I rank all of the Ghibli movie's I've seen:


1. Nausicaa in the Vally of the Wind
2. Porco Rosso
3. Pom Poko
4. Howl's Moving Castle
5. Grave of The Fireflies
6. Princess Mononononononononononoke
7. Laputa: Castle in the Sky
8. Spirited Away
9. Tales From Earthsea

And that wraps it up, thank you all as TDSA went through the so called "prestige" and "canon" of anime. :cool:

I was sure TDSA was going to find it too long and thus boring. That didn't happen and it genuinely surprised me, I must say
ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

Alright folks, now that TDSA has become "culturalized" and now has some (if only a little) "artistic" taste, who'll join the Knights of Obsidius? We already have Defectron, Tankred, and TehDonutKing and I'm almost certain we have GasmaskAvenger and Child of Lilith.

Hey! I've seen all of those movies on that list, execpt for Nausicaa and Earthsea! And I've also seen Totoro and a little bit of Only Yesterday. Does this mean I'm cultured, too?
