Anime Lol: A Reviewers Discussion

So, there comes a time in a man's life when he has to bite the bullet and watch anime. This time happened, not for me, but for Tom Clift of Plus Trailers, after many years of me insulting him for not watching anime, and he insulting me for watching too much. So, after much discussion, we decided he should enter anime in a fashion that suits him...With children's movies. Not really, but some would say that Studio Ghibli is akin to Disney, and in some ways it is, but not in all.

Our journey is somewhat chronological, but not completely due to my inability to find some movies either in stores to buy, or to rent. However, Tom's come a long way on what I've shown him so far, and he might even be starting to enjoy watching these films, something he probably will admit to, but not as much as wants to.

After each movie we watch, we're recording a 5-10 minute discussion on it. These will be uploaded to my youtube account, in this playlist, since Tom has the technological savviness of a fish. The discussions can be seen as reviews of sort, but without definate numbers behind them. We hope you enjoy them, and possibly learn a little about what anime is if you don't know, and if you do, maybe revisit the classics.
