Why you should really listen to your parents

There are days when I’m just not in the mood to follow a series. When a quick anime fix is all I need to get me through the day or week. Enter the short film.

“Kakurenbo” by Shuuhei Morita fits this bill. The movie is about a group of children playing hide-and-seek in an abandoned city. They all wear masks.

One of the characters is a boy named Hikora whose sister, Sorincha, disappeared while playing said game. I can’t remember how long she’s been missing though. Hikora thinks by participating in the game, he will find her.

But he will realize this particular hide-and-seek game comes with a sinister twist.

It’s not a bad short film and actually won several awards.

  1. What were your thoughts on the speed racer movie?
    I really enjoyed the original series but didn’t get to see the new movie that came out.

  2. What did you think of the Speed Racer movie?
    I have been out of it for a while, but really enjoy j-anime. I see “Speed” on Hulu. Let me know your thoughts on the mov””

  3. Martha,

    I must admit I never even finished an episode of the anime. The animation is too dated for me plus I was never a big fan of racing cartoons with the exception of “Wacky Racers.”

    The reviews I read about the movie panned it so I steered clear. Even a matinee ticket is $8 nowadays.

  4. Yes I did. Saw it the first weekend it came out and I really liked it.

    Anything furry and cute that can still karate chop baddies gets my vote.
