Mike,

Why do you need to practice listening to Korean? I spoke it once, but I have been too far removed to remember anything. Kill Bill has Korean subtitles if you wanna practice reading.

As Far as Anime,

My FAVORITE has always been "Yotoden." It is a Three Part movie that is STELLER!!! You can get the condensed Movie, but since it is just a montage of the three movies, it is too hard to follow and not very good. You need to get and watch all three!

I recently saw Now and Then, Here and There. It's very disturbing and graphic.

I think that was directed to me (the comment to mike about korean). I have rudimentary korean language knowledge from my childhood (and three semesters of college korean). I understand loads more than I can speak.

My reading is awful, too slow. I can sound out the characters, but only recognize them by saying them to myself. So I wouldn't get much out of korean subtitles.

Listening to korean, however, lets me improve my vocab and a little grammar. But only in the household-korean way, not in the scholar-structure way. It helps that I have an understanding of grammar now, because I didn't as a kid. Things just sounded "right" or "wrong."

Mmm, Eva.

A friend of mine made a mix video of clips from Eva to a song for Anime Boston AMV contest (and made it to the finals). If you can figure out the video format and things, it's on this page.

I just saw Blue Submarine No. 6. All in all, fun to watch, nicely drawn, but good grief, do the Japanese know how to ruin a movie with awful music. Meh. The action scenes had this kind of paen to the kind of cheese you would hear during old Godzilla movies.

The plot was kind of confusing. There was a little girl on the submarine whose purpose I'm still not entirely clear on. I gathered she was the resident empath or something, but I never really saw the crew of the No. 6 make use of her empathy in any kind of useful way.

Also, note to any Japanese anime directors who might read this, while I understand it's a trope of the genre, drawing all the women in either skin tight uniforms, or topless, does *not* help the viewer to focus on the story!

Oh, and there aren't any goofy cute side kicks. I hate those and their lack automatically earns the movie points from me.

I have to say that I love Neon Genesis Evangelion, particularly the last two episodes... although I suspect there are those who would disagree....
