I'm pretty much into Japanese comics, series and movies with real
or animated people and video games, music as well as Japanese
cuisine - but not exclusively. Still, very often it turns out that
Japanese things take #1 positions.
Just some non-hierarchical, random picks out of my list of
'favourites', mixed and mangled in wild confusion:
Memories of Matsuko, Survive Style, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance,
Oldboy, Lady Vengeance, Wes Anderson, Ikebukuro West Gate Park,
Spaced, IT-Crowd, Black Books, Honey and Clover, Cowboy Bebop,
Mushi-shi, Sherlock, Freaks and Geeks, Breaking Bad, Lost, Firefly,
movies by Satoshi Kon and Hayao Miyazaki, Watchmen, Fun Home, The
Arrival, Not Simple, The Last of Us, GTA IV, GTA V, Tristram
Shandy, Sensei no kaban, Fabian, Ookami, some Final Fantasies,
Zelda, Naoki Urasawa, Inio Asano, Yoshitaka Amano, Asian Kung-Fu
Generation, Suneohair, Joe Hisaishi, Yoko Kanno, Takashi
No more senseless listing!
Spitz, Miyavi, Buck Tick, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Mumford and Sons
(hooray for the banjo!), Arcade Fire, Placebo, Madrugada...
I could go on and pretend to know things I barely started with or
heard of...bands I only know a handful of songs of, but who look
great in a profile...
...but not today.
Sisters of Mercy, Robert Johnson, The Doors
