Was drafting a supposedly awesome introduction for this post in my head when this girl Juvie on #TheVoicePh came up. I got distracted. By the way, if you wanna win exclusive passes to watch The Voice of the Philippines live, click HERE.
Now back to regular programming.
It was a couple of days ago when I woke up at around 8:00am thinking it was still 6. Everything was dark and gloomy and cold and meh, you get my gist. Since nobody's up yet other than me (they were fooled by the weather too!), I decided to walk around the house in my running shoes. Yes, walk in my running shoes. #lame. Well, that's me, training in preparation for tomorrow's KOTR. #doublelame
But you know what I really love doing in the kind of weather we're having lately? Stay in bed, open my laptop, and watch Japanese animated movies for as long as
there's one that is free online I like.
Been watching Hayao Miyazaki's and Studio Ghibli's for awhile now and I must say that they have, hands down, the most beautiful storylines and memorable characters. I'm down to a couple more movies before I finish their whole lineup and with the sun acting antisocial more often than not lately, I'm worried that I might run out.
And then I googled "Top Japanese Animated Movies."
IMDb gave me its top 50.
