Anime Movie Review: My Neighbors The Yamadas

I am going to focus on only one aspect of My Neighbors the Yamadas: the haiku appearing after many of the vignettes. The video above is the Japanese trailer for this movie. This post is also a vehicle for me to learn how to use tables in a post.

How cruel
A grasshopper trapped
Under a warrior's helmet

Turn towards me
I'm lonely too
The autumn dusk

The scent of plums
On a mountain path
Suddenly dawn

A lone figure
Back turned
Receeing into the mist
Santoka (1882-1940)

A spring shower
Dressed for rain
Talking as they go
Buson (1716-1784)

No sign
Of death's approach
In the cicada's voices

Fleeting dreams
An octopus making
Its home in a trap
A summer moon
