I rewatched Akira and Princess Mononoke to see if I still had the same feelings for them as the first time I saw them. My opinion had a few changes, but for the most part it stayed the same.

Akira starts out fairly well; I dig the setting and the characters seem to have interesting lives. But then it gets boring. The whole super powers thing doesn't interest me. I wanted to see the gang mess around with the adults and fight the Clowns.

Princess Mononoke is quite well done, but like with Akira, the story doesn't really interest me. I think I was supposed to like the gods, but I had trouble with them acting like special people. I mean, they're only gods. What's the big deal? They hassle the iron works people, and then get angry when they retaliate.
