I provide a rough and brief analysis on the changes Akira Kurosawa makes to Ryuunosuke Akutagawa's "In a Grove".
I compare the environmental commentary of two Studio Ghibli films and that of two Western animated films to analyze the former's unique conveyance of theme.
I use the classic 1995 film Ghost in the Shell as a challenge to an Enlightenment thinker's understanding of consciousness and existence.
I take Hal and Colorful as examples of how films can use twists to expand their meaning and value.
I explore Seita's allegorical role in the classic Studio Ghibli film Grave of the Fireflies.
I introduce a new, more brief series of postings for anime I write about in class by using Hal (2013 film) as a pilot.
