Some updates and re-watching an old movie

So the past few days I've been updating. Various series but of course my favorite ones are in the RK, Macross and Trigun sections. I also started X and hopefully a package will be arriving soon so that my lone X cel don't get too lonely. *chuckles* But anyway, I broke down and finally bought that Usui cel from the dealer site. I've been eyeing it for a long time and after the disappearance of Jine from Anime-Link, I decided that it's usually when I wait that I miss cels I want. Also I finally got a Vash with his gun. Oh dear me... I've been wanting one for so long but couldn't get you know, something I can afford for that series. Eheeheheh...

Anyway, I was good and stayed away from the Kenshin cels on YJ. LOL. They were great cels and whoever won got themselves quite a piece of artwork, but eh I felt that the group would go higher and I'm flat out broke so... Well that helps in being good ne?

Now away from cels, today I went and got myself a copy of Macross: Do You Remember Love. Yes I have watched Macross back in the 80s... To be honest I don't remember much of it, only that I know it was one of those anime that I still think about and wish they'd make a nice sequel for. I just really like the original better and some like Macross Zero and Macross Plus... The others, I'm not so sure but in all fairness I haven't watched the others.. I just don't know, from clips that I've seen I probably won't like it... Anyway back to the movie... Obviously I watched the movie for my newest cel acquisition... LOL. It was a pretty good movie, good enough that I actually like it. Most of the time I do not like movies as much as the TV series or OVA, because I feel that they try to condense hours of anime into a 2 hour movie. That's why I never watch a movie without watching the series first (if there was one). One of the way I judge a movie adaptation is whether a newbie who's never seen the anime, whether they'd enjoy it and understand it. I've seen too many anime movies that were just so..... Well it wasn't made for non-fans of that movie at all. Anyway, Macross DYRL passes that test even if it also suffers from not putting enough attention to it's secondary characters... At least for those secondary characters they got the point across unlike some movies where they just completely ignored secondary characters. Ugh... Anyway I'm going to stop rambling now. Enjoy the update and why not pick up an Anime movie you've not seen in 20 years? You might even be pleasantly surprised.
