    Meiko Kaji - Knives n' Eyes

    There is no such thing as the perfect sequel? I beg your pardon? This is it. It takes every aspect of the predecessor and makes it better while being fresh and standing on its own feet. That is the definition of what a sequel should be.

    It’s darker and more upsetting than the first one. The brilliant visuals are to be found here as well. Now with some interesting camera movements and more metaphorical…

    Gojira - King of the Monsters

    Shin - "new" (新), "true" (真), or "God" (神)

    Thank you Sion Sono for this, thank you.
