He Had Us at Anime

While shagging one of our emotionally unavailable conquests, he screamed our name. (We're coldhearted. It meant nothing.) But when he started watching an anime DVD on his big screen, we saw pink and gold twittering birds everywhere, then drew a heart in the steam on the window.

Needless to say, anime is our genre of choice, so expect to see us at the screening of Bleach: Memories of Nobody. The flick, which was originally adapted from the long-running 2001 Japanese shonen series, follows the escapades of Soul Reaper Rukia Kuchiki and orange-haired high schooler Ichigo Kurosaki, who has the ability to see ghosts. Directed by Noriyuki Abe in 2006, the film takes place in Karakura Town, where the evil "Dark Ones" pursue their vendettas against the real world and the Soul Society, promising the annihilation of both dimensions.
