A City, an Invention, a Fish, a Castle and a Bathhouse….

What do all these things have in common?  They have have to do with the anime movies that I have been seeing in anticipation for The Secret World of Arrietty, coming out on February 17th!

The movies that I will be watching every night include Rintaro’s Metropolis, Katsuhiro Otomo’s Steamboy, and three movies from Hayao Miyazaki: Ponyo, Howl’s Moving Castle and Spirited Away.

So far, I have seen three of the five movies.  I will be seeing Howl’s Moving Castle tonight and Spirited Away tomorrow night.

That’s two more nights of magic.  With the arrival of Arrietty in two weeks, that night will truly be one of brilliance and wonder.
