Mononoke Hime

I spent this evening at Andrew "Bad Andy" Janiszewski's place. He's been telling me about this film "Princess Mononoke" (or Mononoke Hime in the original Japanese), so today I finally got to see it. It was an excellent experience. I learned that Turtle Creek has a pool, I had a superb college-style meal prepared by Andy, and I got to see Mononoke Hime.

This movie was an amazing piece of anime. The animation was quite good, as was the music. But most of all I enjoyed the plot. It was rather involved, and I'm sure I'd have to watch the movie many more times before I could truly understand it. There are a variety of factions involved, and it's hard to tell what the true alliance of some characters is. It's intriguing. And Andy and I agree: a girl that chews your food for you is hot. San (the princess Mononoke) is a true badass. As is Prince Ashitaka. I need to watch this movie several more times.

And as if life wasn't good enough, Junkyard Wars is on tv now.
