Anime - Japanese Animation
Baka - Japanese word for idiot or fool
Loosely put an Anime Baka is someone who's crazy about Anime. However interpretation's may vary. I tend to think of Anime Baka as meaning something like drooling fan boy/girl.
Wrote this a long time ago. Too short for an article:
Perverted - Hentai in Japanese. But the word pervert means deviation from normal or accepted. So, how can all guys be perverts?
Did you ever notice that the sex scene in the movie is generally at about the same realative place as the guitar solo in a song?
HK - Bride with White Hair
I would love to say loved it, loved it, loved it. But it came off as draggy. The story is excellent. The presentation is excellent. But someone needed to shake about a half hour out of this movie. I'm sure with some creative editing this could be one of the best movies ever. On the whole we loved the movie, but the movie kept getting in the way of the movie. Perhaps it's a cultural thing.
This is the story of tragic romance, Chinese style. Two warriors of two opposing clans fall in love. Do they kill each other, not kill each other, kill everyone else or err well you get the picture. This is well beyond "you killed my brother" martial arts flicks, but still within the tradition. It also features quite a bit of the super natural. Very cool, a little freaky and rather sad.
