Now, of course there are plenty more anime flicks to be had out there-- not to mention all the various anime TV series that would be a good choice for Halloween night, like Hell Girl or an arc or two of Ghost Hunt --but I'm sure I missed some, like Ghost in the Shell and Akira. Are you going to be watching something on Halloween? Do you know what yet?

Yeah, I was originally going to have Higurashi in there, but unfortunately, I could only pick movies OR TV series...while there was a broader selection for TV series, I thought a movie was a lot more practical for a Halloween event than a TV show (which could be way too long to marathon in one night). ^_^;

Some people prefer less "scary" and more just "off-beat," so I thought it'd be a decent alternative.
