Blue Exorcist: Nature or Nurture?

It is a question of humanity if we are determined by our nature or by those who nurture us. If you ask a room full of people this question, you will get a variety of different answers.

Fruits Basket: Nostalgia Comeback

So, it was nice to see a Chinese Romantic Comedy take this theme to the television screen.

Howl’s Moving Castle: Fantasy and Whimsy

I am a major fan of Hayao Miyazaki (Japanese filmmaker). He builds these wonderful worlds of magic, fantasy, and whimsy.

His fanbase stretches over the globe and are made up of people from different walks of life. I love his work, but my most favorite creation he has done is Howl’s Moving Castle. 

Wicked: Good Intentions Never Go Unpunished

One of the first Broadway plays that I watched in New York was the ever popular and famous Wicked about 5 years ago. If you are not familiar with the story, then you are missing out. Wicked is a unique take on the story from Wizard of Oz. The story of what happened before Dorthy dropped in.
