I second this, it's been a wonderful little anime so far, with tons of pretty animation to delight the eye. One of the best anime of this season, and certainly the most different.

Ashire Melos: I knew this film from some gorgeous pieces of animation on sakugabooru I saw years ago, and decided to finally watch it. I'm happy to say it's a solid movie. The story is a classic Japanese book, which surprised me, because I really did think it was a based on a Greek play! It's a relatively short anime, but the characters are endearing enough and there is rarely a dull moment in it's run time. The third act, in particular, manages to get you pumped up quite nicely.

Also, as I expected, it is an absolutely wonderful looking film, which is in part due to the contributions of Hiroyuki Okiura. It is then a shame that I could only find the movie in VHS quality. Has no one released this movie in DVD or Bluray in Japan?

The only weaker aspect is the OST, which is hardly memorable.

8/10

Neo Tokyo: I can't believe I hadn't seen this yet. Just absolutely amazing looking. Worth watching for the animation alone.

8/10

I saw for the first time in two decades the first episode of Macross Plus the OVA version. Seems like I forgot some details in some scenes that the movie version lacked or ignored because I have been more dependent in those decades of the latter version for the ultimate thrill ride. Is it just me or does the OVA vision make Myung and Lucy look sexier? Maybe because the movie was given to us in a cheap knock off way that the visuals didn't look their best. Bryan Cranston as Isamu's voice is a joy to hear since he knocks every role whether voice or live action out of the park. And I am glad I saw the end credits to hear audio bliss with Yoko Kanno and Mai Yamane's "After in the Dark" which I totally forgot after depending so much on the movie all this time.

Blade of the Immortal ONA

I only just put together that this is not the same series I watched in 2008.

I spent like 3 hours trying to figure out where I left off...

Anyway, this was just something that fell in-between the cracks for me. No complaints; I love watching characters I come to care about, die.

The ONA version seems to be a more "complete" runthrough. Fixing the pacing and lack of details in the 2008 version.

Pokemon: Twlight Wings

Nothing complicated going on here; just solid animation, and a refreshing take on Pokemon as a setting.

No Ash in sight; it's a series of vignettes of characters who I assume show up in Sword & Shield.

Bea is best "COME AT ME BRO!" girl.

But I'll never understand why anyone would drag along three Pokemon of the same evolution line at different stages.

Oh yeah, I've stumbled upon this as well! So cute, great animation and you can even understand it without speaking Japanese.

Also, I've watched the first Episode of the Patlabor OVA, unmistakingly Oshii, but his perks are a little bit reigned in in comparison to his later stuff. Great fun, definitely gonna watch Episode 2 :)
