I happened to see the movie The Age of Adaline the other day and ended up over thinking the movie more than I wanted to. The story sounds pretty cool. A woman that never ages. There are so many directions you can go with that story, so how did this movie do? My friends and I debated a lot through this movie about what we would do if we were the characters.
There are so many new releases of anime that come and go every year, that it’s easy to miss the gems. I thought about the various shows I’ve watched in the past two years and which ones I enjoyed the most. These may not be to your taste, but I’m going to talk about three anime series that I think are generally enjoyable to watch. My recent anime recommendations!
I’d like to talk about my favorite Japanese movie of all time, [いま、会いにゆきます] (ima ai ni yukimasu) or the English title, “Be with you”. This movie is a heartwarming love story that was released in 2004. I don’t think it is well known outside of Japan, China, and Korea. I consider this a hidden gem of Japanese cinema.
