~AP Sleepover~ (Poll #2)
I thought it would be cool if we could all watch an anime movie together! So I picked anime movies right from the anime link on Ani-Pock, so that we can watch the movie and chat! Now I know not everyone likes anime, but don't worry we'll be doing other stuff too, like some games, or telling stories.
Summaries of the Movies!

Origins: (The Spirits of the Past)
In a post-apocalyptic future, Neutral City has sprung up on ruins located between the militant nation of Ragna and the sentient forest that controls the area's water supply. While on an adventure one day young Agito, whose father helped found the town, falls into some deep ruins. There he discovers a stasis structure that still contains one perfectly-preserved living person: a girl named Toola, who comes from the civilization prior to the calamity that destroyed the Moon and ravaged the Earth. Accidentally awakening her, Agito helps Toola adjust to this very different new world, but she has trouble accepting it and is swayed by Colonel Shanuck of Ragna, a man who, like her, awakened from stasis a few years earlier, and seeks a device that could undo the damage done to the world – and Toola is, of course, the key to finding and activating it. But activating Istok could just as well be the doom of the world as its salvation, and that is something the forest will not allow.
Sword of the Stranger:
Hunted by the Mings from China, young Kotaro and his dog meet a nameless samurai ("Nanashi") who is constantly being haunted by dreams of the past which lead him to seal his sword. Among the Mings is a fiercesome Western fighter named Rarou, who desires only to find a worthy opponent. When both groups clash with a Sengoku-era feudal lord, a proud general, and monks torn between faith and survival, the reason behind the Mings' pursuit tests the bond between Kotaro and Nanashi.
