The secret tragedy of Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro has brought joy to the masses since its release in 1986. But surprisingly, it was initially supposed to be screened alongside Studio Ghibli’s most depressing film ever: Grave of the Fireflies. Can watching the two films side by side teach us anything, and will doing so change the meaning of Totoro? Let’s find out in this Wisecrack Edition: Did We Misunderstand Totoro?

Yesterday the YouTube channel Wisecrack had a video about the movie Idiocracy called IDIOCRACY: Did It Come True? – Wisecrack Edition:

I remember my former female classmate AM mentioning this movie to me one day years ago when we both worked at L Binding Service (LBS), and so I watched the movie and I liked it better than I had expected; and so I am glad that Wisecrack made a video about it.

The end,

The Philosophy Of Mob Psycho 100 – Wisecrack Edition

The Philosophy Of Mob Psycho 100 – Wisecrack Edition

What is it?

Recently I watched a YouTube video by the YouTube channel Wisecrack called The Philosophy Of Mob Psycho 100 – Wisecrack Edition:

What is it about?

This is how Wisecrack describes this video:

Like manga artist ONE’s previous work One Punch Man, Mob Psycho 100 features an overpowered protagonist unable to derive happiness from the thing that makes them “special.” But what does it mean to be special? And can such a label actually bring us happiness?? In this Wisecrack Edition, we’ll explore Mob and the other Espers’ inability to reconcile their exceptionalism with their desire to live a good life.
