Around the World: eLectrified

I watched Terror in Tokyo

I watched the first two episodes of the new anime Terror in Tokyo. Shinichiro Watanabe, creator of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, once again teams up with Yoko Kanno! Only two episodes have been released so far, and I'm quite intrigued by the series. The animation is very high quality, the soundtrack is wonderful (as can be expected of Yoko Kanno), and the story is very mysterious. I have high hopes for this series.

About time [videodisc] by Universal Pictures presents ; in association with Relativity Media ; a Working Title production ; produced by Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Nicky Kentish Barnes ; written and directed by Richard Curtis —  Besides taking place in different times, it is set in England.
