There's a thousand different people I'd want to talk to.  Not necessarily to ask questions, but just to hear their story and what they have to say.  More interestingly, people really should learn to listen more - you never know if the person talking to you today is one of tomorrows most historic figures.

I kind of enjoy WW2 facts and documentaries so it would probably be people from there, such as people there first hand.

I've met both William Herschel and Henry Langrehr, both of which are surviving WWII vets.

Mr. Herschel is a Medal of Honor recipient and was involved in the Battle of Okinawa.  Mr. Langrehr was one of the paratroopers in the D-Day invasion (he's actually the same guy that is depicted falling through the greenhouse in the movie The Longest Day).  Both of them are pure legends.

      Me and my friend recently watched Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade, written by legendary Mamoru Oshii, which is based on his Kerberos Saga manga and media franchise. Strangely, he didn't direct it like he did Ghost In The Shell (apparently he was so busy working on the latter that he allowed his close protege to do the directing instead). Anyway, after finishing the film, we were left confused with a thought: Was it good? Did we like it? But the more we thought about it, we came up with our own answers: My friend didn't like it, citing that the forced "Little Red Riding Hood" metaphor throughout the entire film and flat characterization for the main characters didn't make him feel invested in the story at all.
      As for me, I did not dislike it, but I also didn't like it. But strangely, I couldn't say that I did not care for it. In the end, my feelings towards Jin-Roh was that "I wanted to like it". It has beautiful animation, music and overall great production values considering the time it was made and released, and there's obviously deep love and care put into making the movie. However, it is also one of those movies were unless you understand Japanese historical background (in this case post-WWII) and other cultural context not familiar to the western audience, you would be left utterly confused by it. We discussed this together with our acquaintance who recommended for to watch it so he can discuss his own thoughts about it with us: 
      What did all of you think of Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade? Did you understand its message and theme better than we did? Or was it also confusing to you at times?

      I am all caught up on the demon salyer manga and saw the trailer for shadow of tsushima yesterday. Looking for a show that is centered around shinobi and the samurai. Something other than Naruto, love the show but it's now the type of ninja themed show I'm looking for. cough war arc cough cough

      I hope I'm doing this right :3 Just finished Hakuouki Movie 1, and wow! It was pretty darn good! Now I want to see the series it's based off of! And the other films.

      I won't got into to much detail until the discussion starts, but I really liked characters. I also thought the atmosphere was really well developed! The pacing wasn't too slow, or too fast, so it was pretty easy to follow what was going on (though, the large cast made it a bit hard for me to remember everyone's names XD)
      Did anyone else have a chance to watch it today? What are your thoughts?
