One of my newly discovered favourite songs found in a week filled totally with anime and no films.
This trailer post was quick to write considering that there are only ten Japanese films (and Hollywood’s Godzilla reboot which I reviewed earlier this week) released this weekend. The quality is high for all of the releases with many interesting stories and some good looking cinematography (so no complaints!). I managed to get my hands on Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s latest film and I also ordered a few films/books/manga from Japan like The Snow White Murder Case. I also ordered some stuff connected to Tokyo Ghoul which remains my favourite anime this season although Zankyou no Terror and Space Dandy are equally as good.
It has been a very hot and sunny week as the UK is experiencing its best summer in recent memory. I have spent more time outside with my cat drinking milkshakes and watching Hataraku Maou-Sama. When not doing that, I have posted about the Godzilla film and the latest release from Third Window Films, Behind the Camera (2013). There’s a review for that due on Monday. Staying on the subject of reviews, I finished one for the first two episodes of Zankyou no Terror for AUKN and it reads better than my First Impression (but with far fewer images).
