Rurouni Kenshin is also a popular one! Have you seen the movies, too? They are pretty good!
Rurouni Kenshin is my all time favorite
Thank you for the question.
I use Netflix. There are many Japanese anime and movies with Japanese language with English subtitle option. You might also want to check your local library for foreign DVDs. You might find some Japanese movies.
Where is everybody streaming these movies?
What services are you using?
Tried to locate on Crunchy but no luck...
Onmyoji I & II, eiga wa suki desu!!!
Hi Frances Soares,
Thanks for your comment! I like Satō Takeru's performance in Rurouni Kenshin!
Hi Kasper Jensen,
Thank you for the comment! Thank you for sharing your favorite movie titles!
I've watched a couple of Japanese movies, though not as many as I could. I think my favorites would be "BLAME!" (which is on Netflix), "The Sky Crawlers" (only anime I own on DVD/Blu-Ray) and Kidou Senshi Gandamu: Gyakushu No Shaa (also known as "Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack").
Although I am really looking forward to "Shin Gekijouban Evangelion :||" ("Rebuild Of Evangelion: FINAL", literally "New Theatrical Version Evangelion :||") which is scheduled to come out this year (but considering that it was originally scheduled for 2009, I probably shouldn't get my hopes up too high...)
I've seen and enjoyed watching "Shall We Dance?", "Rurouni Kenshin" and became an instant fan of Satoh Takeru, and "Departures".
Thank you for the cute emoticon!
