The movie I'm almost done with has Japanese dolls in it.
This is the second anime movie that I've seen with Japanese dolls. The other one was Ghost in the Shell Innocence.
What is it with the Japanese dolls in anime?
They are scary. They are scary in anime, with them turning their white heads 360 degrees...
But they are definitely scarier in real life.
When I was a kid we had one in our house. Freaked me out. It sat in a section in our living room, and whenever I had to pass by to get to the kitchen to get a drink of water in the middle of the night, I tried not to look at it.
When we moved out of that house into a new house, I think mom got rid of the doll. Or it went into a box and never made it out. Either way I was much happier.
Now if anime directors could stop using them in their shows...
I finished KAGETORA #6, so now I will move onto an unannounced title by Broccoli.
KAGETORA #6 gets pretty interesting because Yuki and Kagetora encounter some hardships. There is also a love triangle that starts forming and continues on through volume #7 (which I have to work on after I finish a manga and a novel).
KAMUI #3 is going to be released tomorrow (though I hear that many bookstores broke street dates), so please check that out as well.
I've been busy last week training at the new company I'll be doing work for. This will be QC-ing translations for Hollywood movies, TV shows, and other fun stuff.
It's really exciting because I will finally get into a different industry. Sort of. In the past I've done video games (mostly hentai), manga, anime, etc... Never big screen movies and prime time TV shows.
I'm still training, because the software I'm training for is the most difficult in Japanese.
