Okay, just like it says in the heading – let’s go with a Ghibli-themed guessing game: two of their most famous films here (and also my least fav from the studio) 😀
Last week I put up a quick poll and while a few of the options I had listed came close – the winner is Perfect Blue.
I might try to watch it this weekend and begin (slowly) writing up a review over the next week.
Keen to get to this, even as I kinda worry that I won’t have much to add to a film that’s been written about quite extensively 😀
Here’s a new collab, me and Curtis from Iridium Eye Reviews tackle ‘Gunbuster’ this time 🙂
AKA: Gunbuster: Top O Nerae!, Gunbuster: Aim for the Top!
Genre: Mecha/Action/War Drama
Year Released: 1988-1989
Distributor: Unlicensed (DVD formally available by Bandai Visual USA/Honneamise)
Running Time: OVA, 6 episodes, 27-31 minutes each
Rating/Recommended Audience: 16+
Related Films/Series: Diebuster, Gunbuster vs. Diebuster
For Fans Of: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gundam series, RahXephon, Saikano, Pacific Rim, Divergence Eve, Galaxy Express 999, Noein, Voices of a Distant Star
-Please check out Ashley’s blog The Review Heap.
-Gunbuster is the directorial debut of noted animator Hideaki Anno. Before there was Nadia: Secret of Blue Water, His and Her Circumstances, or even Neon Genesis Evangelion, there was this little OVA in Gainax’s early days.
-Hilarious in Hindsight: Noriko Hidaka and Rei Sakuma voice Noriko Takaya (note the first name) and Kazumi Amano respectively, so it’s as if Akane and Shampoo from Ranma ½ became mecha pilots…

Of course, I do have a few things on the go right now and plenty of stuff from the past that I could review, but I thought I’d open a vote for a film this time around (last post like this I think I listed four or five series instead).
So, here’s some options – hopefully something catches your eye!
Some of these I’ve seen (some years ago) and two I’ve not had the chance to watch at all just yet.
Time for guessing game number nine (eight was connected to an update a while back).
Once again, trying to go for a random mix of styles, eras and colours – hopefully I haven’t accidentally repeated any anime here:
Lately, I’ve been pretty busy changing jobs – I left a deeply flawed and unpleasant workplace (and career) and now work different hours in a new industry and specifically a much better workplace – so lots to learn!
These changes have been slowing me down when it comes to posting here (as does time spent wrapping up a few writing projects) but I thought I’d try to catch up with a few posts over the next week or so.
If I owe you a comment or a response to something, you’re most definitely on my list 😀
So, here’s another guessing game… in part because it’s faster for me to create these than a review! No theme but I tried to go for vaguely similar colours.
(Some of these are easy ones and a few should be harder – for one image there’s a clue that’s far more visible if you click on the image.)
Hello! I wanted to squeeze in another of these before the end of the year 🙂
Six more screencaps to guess:
Again, no particular theme or era, just images I either already had or could find – and hopefully I haven’t accidentally used any repeat shows/films.
(One is perhaps a little difficult, without characters visible etc, and also being a sequel to something that was more popular.)
Here’s another six screencaps to guess – well, 5 pics and 1 gif:
(Still struggling to complete an entire review, lately and I have a few shows to actually write-up, so I’m a bit behind. December might be the return of the ‘regular review’ schedule… maybe!)
Okay, one more and then I’ll take a break so I can knuckle down on some reviews!
Okay, here’s six new images to guess:
(No particular theme or era this time)
Just like the last three posts like this one, here’s six images – jump in to guess the films/series 🙂
(Making a 80s/90s themed one this time.)
