I remember reading some of the manga yeeeeaars ago on Spectrum Nexus. And thinking ‘My god this is gross!’. Yet I kept reading, I haven’t read it all by anime means, but I knew the basic premise. So when I noticed ‘Gantz‘ listed on Kenichi Matsuyama’s AMW, I was all ‘YAY!!’. I mean, anything of Matsuken’s is *YAY* but a movie based on a manga that I’d actually read. *Huzzah!* I waited over a year for this movie. From November 2009 to… well it was released in January in Japan, and America got special (dubbed lol but grrrr) showings, but I couldn’t see it until recently. I was interested to see if they could mirror the levels of goryness that the manga had. I’ve not seen the anime so I can’t comment on that, but the manga was super gory, and the chapter graphics were generally buxom ladies wearing part of the Gantz bondage suits. (Come on, you know they are, tight black PVC? You know it crossed your mind!!) The movie got them right. And the guns. Ohh the guns are cool.

Thought I’d make a list of what we need/want to watch lol.
We’ve already got through;
Samurai High School
We’re currently watching;

And we will eventually watch;
Mei-chan no Shitsuji
Massugu no Otoko(Maybe just I’ll watch this lol)
Kisarazu Cat’s Eyes(Well…maybe this just I’ll watch haha, but still..)
Theres Full House & some Banjun Drama for the K-drama so far, but its harder to get lol, and we’re picky.
We started out with movies first though, Shindo, Koizora, Detroit Metal City, Aquarian Age, I’m a Cyborg, but thats OK, not in that order lol. Theres still more to watch though, but TV has distracted us…
Ultra Miracle Love Story(which we’re watching tonight finally, awesome Matsuken-ness!!)
Gachi Boy(Which I started watching one night, but forced myself to stop haha, its so adorable… and it’ll be sad…)
Do Not Laugh At My Romance
Gohatto(Already seen it, but Purplezest hasn’t lol)
Transferring files around is a bitch…… 4.7GB should not take over 8 minutes….. grrr…
Now, I thought ‘otaku’ was just a word for someone who is obsessed with something, yes it’s more commonly connected to anime/manga etc, but thats not the proper-proper use, is it? In Japanese its a word for someone with an obsession for a certain area(there are other meanings I’m aware of too, its also a suffix like -san/-dono/-chan etc which I wasn’t as aware of lol), but some still want to use it just for anime/manga/eroge obsessions. After becoming a fan of anime/manga when I was 13(I think…) I wasn’t really aware of the use of otaku at all, why would I be? I live in a country that once wrote off most Japanese cartoons as pornographic thanks to Urotsukidoji lol. That was then though, this is now. Much more accepting of it… I think lol.
I’ve always been… easy to get obsessed with something, when I was ickle, it was Dalmatians, thanks to 101 Dalmatians. Favourite Disney movie of all time, and will remain that way, for mostly sentimental reasons I think lol. But that lasted with me, and still is with me now really, until I was 9 or so, when Pokemon arrived, and Pokemon is still with me now lol, can’t wait for Soul Silver to come out!! Am soooo tempted to import… even though there’s only a couple of weeks in between US & UK releases… still seems unfair that we have to wait…
