Lost in Time: Time Stranger
It generally seems like the best things are found by accident--or, really, I'd just like to credit it that way, for it sounds much more grandiose than saying I lurk the internet in the wee hours, combing every crevice for hidden gold and lost animated treasure. The 3:00 a.m. vigil tells no lies. Ah, but the subject, Time Stranger, is sort of an accident in a way. The inevitability of discovering it is quite certain, but within a few days I received multiple suggestions and leads onto the film, which are oddly by the same director of some past entries, Kunihiko Yuyama, who's films Leda: The Fantastic Adventures of Yohko and Windaria have been quite praised on here. Somehow I missed Time Stranger in my extensive (obsessive) research. Destiny, perhaps? I knew my life had some meaning. My parents were wrong about me.
*Note: Not hating on 80s anime babes. Obviously. I've admitted in past posts that I am a shallow wanker and adore all the animated ladies committed to celluloid.
