After the Mamoru Miyano Marathon

We ended up staying up a little late watching Miraculous, because, in the name of also watching things that are not Miraculous, we decided to watch a movie. I don't know if anybody's heard of The Little Mermaid movie that came out last year, but it showed up in our Netflix suggestions, and we were curious, so we checked it out. It had a very similar vibe to Walt Before Mickey...which makes sense, because it turns out it was made by the same guy. It was a cute idea, but it kind of seemed like too much of the story got left in the creator's head, and didn't make it to the screen. We weren't bored, just full of questions.

But anyway, Collapse )

Today I'm thankful for getting to see an intriguing new take on the Little Mermaid, getting to hang out with Y-san, getting to have a sizable meal during Anime Expo without spending an arm and a leg, Chik-Fil-A cookies, and surviving the earthquake.
