anyone ever see this anime movie?
i spent a few days hunting it down, and i finally watched it.
it's about two orphaned brothers living on the street in a place called treasure town.
they get tied up in a conflict with the yakuza and try to keep "their" town from being changed.
it's kind of wierd,but it's a great movie, i recommend it to all of you guys.

plus, the main brother, black, is played by scott menville (robin from teen titans, and lloyd irving from tales of symphonia); and yuri lowenthal has a small part in it, as well as kate higgins. those two are sasuke and sakura, for those who dont know.

I've seen it. Have you ever watched it in Japanese?
The part where White was Saying "Minotaur" over and over again was "Itachi" In Japanese. 8-)

That's how I found out what Itachi's name means. :mrgreen:

(For those who don't know, a Minotaur is a man with a bull's skull for a head)

Well I had the captions on and they said Itachi...
Where'd you get the weasel thing from...? I could be wrong.

I don't know...Minotaur would be cooler than weasel though.

What's your favorite part about the movie?

I absolutely love TekkonkinKreet. I remember walking into a Blockbusters once looking for anythiing that caught my eye, and when I looked over, I saw TekkonkinKreet. :mrgreen: I watched it about 3 times. Then I bought it. I watched it some more, then I ..lost it.. :cry: Buuuuuut, just today I rented it again :D!
