I figured it was time I wrote an anime post since I've not done an anime post for awhile, and instead focused more on film and game posts. The only anime post I have done so far is 5 Centimetres Per Second and I now reckon I should write some more.
On the 27th of January, after failing to finally go and see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey with my dad due to us both feeling a bit ill, I saw that an anime that Lewis mentioned last year was on Sky Movies. I thought that perhaps this could compensate for missing out on Peter Jackson's new Lord Of The Rings prequel trilogy... and it did! Well, for now at least. I will have to watch The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey when the the DVD is out.
It was just just like old times, watching all the action take place inside a world similar to the internet, while drama was happening in the real world. It was really cool to watch all the main characters, as well as the members of this very large family, type their way through the film, looking so darn cool. Especially since in reality most normal families just shop online or update their Facebook statuses. It was definitely a change from the normal boring routines that take place on your average computer.
At the end of the film you learn two things: 1, YOU DON'T ANSWER A MATHEMATICAL PROBLEM FROM AN UNKNOWN SOURCE! And 2, You must be careful with what you store on the Internet (I'm talking to you, Google Chromebook owners) unless you want any of the trouble that happened in this movie! In the end this film left me with a smile on my face thanks to a thrilling, technical, action-packed roller-coaster ride, and to top it all off, the sun came out once the film had ended!
