Walkdown with me.

For a long time now I have been a anime fan. I have seen great stuff and crap.

Over the next while I will be trying to share a smig of "greats" I have found, and adored.

For your viewing pleasure I have Katsuhiro Otomo: Memories. Actualy 3 seperate movies Magnetic rose, Stink bomb, and Cannon Fodder. Below is Magnetic rose, a truely haunting and beautifully done ghost ship movie.

Katsuhiro Otomo: Memories Magnetic Rose part 1
Katsuhiro Otomo: Memories Magnetic Rose part 2
Katsuhiro Otomo: Memories Magnetic Rose part 3
Katsuhiro Otomo: Memories Magnetic Rose part 4
Katsuhiro Otomo: Memories Magnetic Rose part 5

I've watched the other 2, and of the three I think "rose" is the best of the three. But the others are great works in their own rights.

Did Hollywood do their best to adapt and ruin this one? I had heard "Ghost Ship" was based on anime.

I dont know if it was a adaption, but they did make a movie with the same plot line about a rescue ship finding a deralict and it being a old cruise liner now haunted. It might have just as well been a direct rip of this movie. this came out in 1995, the holywood version in 2002.
