Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Uncategorized

Hi, Mamoru Oshii here, director of such films as Ghost in the Shell and Sky Crawlers. I just wanted to tell you all about my new movie, Assault Girls. I’m pretty sure it’s the best movie ever made, if I do say so myself. It has hot Japanese chicks with wings, giant sand worms and […]

I’ve not read the manga, but I am pretty curious about the upcoming live action adaptation. Here’s a new clip from the film, released today. The film hits […]

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Anime, Film

Trailer! Above is an English-language trailer for the new film about Miyamoto Musashi by Production I.G. and Mamoru Oshii. In my book, Oshii + I.G. = epic win every time, so hell yes I’ll be seeing it! According to the I.G. designers, Musashi had some sinister eyebrows. Reminds me of this creative writing professor I […]
