Narutaki’s picks:

  • Letters From the New York Otaku
    Dave Cabrera of ANN’s Astro Toy among other things has started a new column on a Japanese site writing from the perspective of an American fan. The articles are aimed at Japanese fans curious about the English-speaking community so it is familiar territory for most of us. But that also makes reading it a little surreal.
  • A Vampire Even I Could Love?
    The trailer for Dark Shadows is out and I must admit I like what I see. But then this is one of my favorite combos, Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, so I’m predetermined to give it a fair shot.
  • Animation Trailer Madness

    • Longway North is less a trailer and more a proposal from the director of Secret of Kells. This is already beautiful and engaging as is!
    • Rise of the Guardians now has real animation to see. I’m enjoying the concept more thanks to this, but a lot of us are asking “where is Jack Frost?” who has been front  and center in promotional material but does not appear even for a moment in the trailer.
    • Hotel Transylvania, which has been a troubled production to say the least, is finally finishing up. And might it be another chance for me to enjoy supernatural creatures like vampires!? What is the world coming to.
    • Dinotasia is a compilation movie which had segments that aired on Discovery Channel will be out later this year in the U.S.. It is about dinos so of course it’s cool, but wow this trailer is intense and violent!
    • ParaNorman which indicates to me a sudden influx of morbid comedy? Not that I mind!
    • My Family and the Wolf looks really fun and slightly chilling at the end. It has a great setup that made me curious to know where the story would go. This is a European production so it is 50/50 on whether it will get a wide U.S. release or not.
  • The Happiest Place on Earth
    This lovely promotional video for Tokyo Disneyland has me wishing I could go! At least wishing it more than I already do all the time.

I can’t resist a Disney image after talking about Disneyland.
