Up a Paddle - Episode 45 - Sheep that Pass in the Night
This week I talk about the death of Geneon, the Canadian Dollar reaching Parity with the US Dollar, upcoming Fall Anime, and previous Spring and Summer anime. I also review Ringing Bell and One Stormy Night, two similar but very different children's movies.

The sweat drops drawn in cartoon comic strips are called pleuts.
In this episode I review two children's movie about sheep. I would have reservations about showing either of them to children. Show them Bad Sheep instead. Not the Chris Farley/David Spade vehicle but this one. . That'll really mess them up almost as much as showing them Ringing Bell.
Ringing Bell (Chirin no Suzu). This one is about a sheep that wants to become a big bad wolf so that he won't be prey any more. Very violent and disturbing.
* I said I'd post the YouTube videos for this movie but apparently it has been removed. Here's an AMV:
Ringing Bell - Animal Chirin has Become. It's not that hard to find the movie if you really want to.
One Stormy Night (Arashi no Yoru Ni). This is the story of a sheep and a wolf that becomes friends. It's pretty good and I give it the Kentcer Seal of Approval. Here's the AMV I mentioned (well, a One Stormy Night AMV, anyway):
Arashi No Yoru Ni - Star
