12:01 and Disk 4 of Samurai Champloo

12:01 has a similar plot the Groundhog day, but is not as famous. It has a scifi plot behind it and I found it quite good. Johnathan Silverman wakes up one morning at 12:01. He is late to work and banters with his coworkers. He sees Helen Slater who he has a crush on and fumbles his moves on her at lunch. At 6:15pm when it’s time to go work, he sees her buy flowers and then she gets shot. When he wakes up the next am the day repeats. He sees his opportunity to woo and save the woman he loves, and figure out the reason why the day repeats and who the bad guy really is. I liked this movie and will give it 4/5 acorns. No clives.

Samurai Champloo Disk 4 features a bit about Mugen, and where he comes from. Jin gets to show his samurai stuff. I am still really enjoying this anime. Only 3 more disks to go! (that’s Jin on the left and Mugen on the right and Fuu in the middle)


I found a copy of Ursula Leguin’s Tales of Earthsea in my son’s collection. I am going to attempt to read a book!
