With tummies full of noodles and broth, we hopped over to the Somerville Theatre for a dubbed viewing of The Wind Rises. Since Jordan and a few others had prepared us to be Really Sad, I was already anticipating tears in the theatre and I kept expecting various Turns For The Worst That Never Happened. But instead of tears, I just found myself feeling weighted with melancholy when I left the theatre. It was a beautiful film and I really look forward to watching it again, but in the midst of following this romance between Jiro and his aeronautical dreams, I can’t help but wonder what Naoko was dreaming of. Did she dream of meeting her favorite Western artist and painting her life’s masterpiece?
On a lighter note, my favorite character was Jiro’s jaded friend, Hanjo, who sounded like a grumpy Jim Halpert, curiously enough.
On an even lighter and semi-related note, I finally got around to ordering my and AK’s wigs (seafoam and aqua, respectively) for Anime Boston. And on an even lighter and even more semi-related note, I need a haircut.
