At long last, here’s your coverage of Day 7 of 2018 Women’s Cinema. Day 7 is the day to celebrate Claire Denis. Also, if you look up there in the menu bar, you will see a new section at the corner named…ahem… Directors’ Corner. I intend to go through some certain directors’ filmography after this project so I’ll put those under this new tag. Now, let’s move on to Day 7:

Directors' Corner

Directors’ Corner – Claire Denis

Claire Denis: born in 1946. Denis was born in Paris, but raised in colonial French Africa. Her childhood spent living in West Africa with her parents and her younger sister would color her perspectives on certain political issues. She worked as an assistant director with Wim Wenders on Paris, Texas (1984) and Wings of Desire (1987), and with Jim Jarmusch on Down by Law (1986) before moving on to her debut film Chocolat (1988).

Weekly Anime Summary – Summer 2018 Week 6

Can’t believe we’ve already reached halfway of this anime season. It feels like all the first episodes just aired last week. The more I do this thing the more I realize time passes in a ridiculously fast pace. This week, I decide to drop 1 more show, with other 2 are in the bubble. Many shows grow on me, many shows stay the same and a bunch of them start to fall off the cliff. I might settle down for 12 new shows (plus Steins;Gate 0 and My Hero Academia) so the bubbling shows will have to fight hard next week to claim the last spot. Read on to find out which show gets the short straw. By the way, I’m quite happy with how I group my shows this week. Let’s jump in:

“All the Good Ones Die First”

Weekly Anime Summary – Summer 2018 Week 5

As I already mentioned in my previous post, for this Summer season, this week in anime moves back a day to every Tuesday now. The reason being I don’t have any show to catch up on Tuesday, so it’s a good break to gather my thoughts on these anime I’m currently watching. This mean, I’ll run down 2 episodes of Asobi Asobase, Hanebado! and Planet With this week. As for this week 5 of Summer season, well, Asobi Asobase 04 just beat everything else in terms of pushing the limits on what this cute girls show is capable of. Many shows don’t hold up well but comedy shows seem to be consistent as ever. Let’s get right down to it.

BANANICE!!!

Site Updates

Site Update – New Schedule Announced

So, just few hours ago, while enjoying the summer breeze comfortably in my sofa with a fan blows over my face, and a bowl of popcorn on one hand and two scoop of ice-cream on the other*, I came to a shocking realization that… I have been neglecting my current project for nearly a month now. Now, I know that most of you don’t even care about this movie project of mine (stats never lie), but I just realize the only active content I have right now is a weekly anime post, simply because it’s a commitment to produce those posts. I’ve been blogging over 2 years for the other anime site so I understand my blogging habit. Having a deadline and a weekly routine can keep me from my lack of will. Taking things more slowly and steadier.

Hence, here’s the new weekly blogging schedule for The Silver Moon:

Tuesday: Weekly Anime Summary (I prefer Monday but this current schedule has 4 shows airing on that day and none on Tuesday. So it works better for me to do a wrap up on every Tuesday.

Friday: my Current project (2018 Women’s Cinema Festival)

Sunday: Western Animated TV Series Review (I’ll review one season of certain cartoons each week. Regarding how well I know about Western Animated TV shows, hmmm not so much. But there are many shows I wanna check out. Also, while I reserve this spot for Western cartoon, I might occasionally review classic anime too)

With that and 3 posts / week over the other site should make me busy. Elsewhere, from time to time I’ll blog other topic of interest as well. I’m seriously considering of doing a music post, for example, and flirting with the idea of reviewing manga. We will see. This is my blog so I might as well just write any topic that take my fancy. I know it might sound I put a lot of commitment for a hobby but what can I say? No pain no gain, I suppose. You need workout to push you into shape, right? Let’s see if this new schedule can bring out some fresh air, effective… next week.

*note: none of those I said were true. It’s winter here in Australia, I don’t even have a sofa but I like the free-spirited feel of it.
