"Summer Wars" probably awesome, opens 1 August

This movie has everything:

  • Nosebleeds
  • Onsen
  • Pop-art aliens/toys/avatars/Kami-knows-what
  • TEENAGE RELATIONSHIPS FRAUGHT WITH ANGST
  • Character designs by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto
  • A plot the studio doesn’t want us to know about

I can’t think of a better antidote to the summer heat than walking into a chilly movie theatre and watching this with your current crush. Damn it, Tokyo, why you gotta be so far away?

  1. How could anyone not be excited about a movie with onsen, nosebleeds, and teenage relationships fraught with angst? Harry Potter had two of the three.
