Resolved Question: What anime/cartoon movie
I watched a movie a long time ago and would like to know the name of it. I don't remember much but it was about a couple and had something to do with them being spirits. They were in a spirit world and someone was trying to capture them. Anyway, near the end of the movie they got on this train that took them to be reincarnated and they had agreed to meet at a certain tree when they were alive again.
Probably sounds like the ramblings of a crazy person but I've been wondering about this for a while and was hoping someone knew the answer! Thanks in advance.

Resolved Question: What japanese animated
I remember there was a girl, I think she was a geisha, and then there's this boy and they fell in love with each other. And there were three warriors who kept on fighting. It's animation style is like Studio Ghibli. The plot revolved around this boy who needed to uhm, stop, the train so they wouldn't get reincarnated because if they do, they'd forget their memories and he'll forget that girl he fell in love with (the geisha).
Anybody who's seen this?

Resolved Question: What is this
It's really old, during the 1900s. I think it was Chinese-based cartoon dvd.
It's about a guy who entered an enitre new world, the underworld.
and there are ghosts, monsters, mainly spirits, underwater stuff,
and an evil guy who controls a drum-killing machine.
So the main character, this average asian looking guy, is hanging
around a temple or something and finds this un-dead woman
whom he falls in love with. She has a good personality but
she can't live in sunlight and her family tried to take his soul.
Her mother (I think) wanted his soul, lives in a clam, within a very lively
spirit city with everyone hanging around the streets. (maybe
it was a festival?) and the main character tries to stay with
the girl for the entire time, but they easily get separated and
they usually fall into another world, sometimes in time and space
but other times in a small village. I wouldn't say the female
is a very innocent character, she is also part spirit/vampire/demon/whatever
and also takes souls in order to live or just for fun.
And uhh.. that's it. Thank you for taking your time :p

Resolved Question: If I absolutely love
I also love his "Time and Tide", find "seven swords" o.k, nothing special, but straight out bored by "The Legend of Zu". He has done great many films and I have no intention of going through them all. So, are there any more of his films that share the chaotic knock out energy which "The Blade" has?
