Yeah, I love Shibasaki Kou, did you see her in the movie Dororo? Another bizarro cinematic experience, I wondered how they could be so inventive and come up with so many weird demons, but I found later that many of those demon creations actually are part of Japanese lore, like inugami and that tree ...

Kou Shibasaki became a top favorite with me after I saw her in Galileo, and Tsumabuki Satoshi is so great in this role, Eita and the other actors are wonderful as well, oh I really wish they had made the Dororo sequel!!!

Well I don't know about now, but you might try ebay or Amazon. I bought the dvd when the movie first came out but gave it to my cousin a long time ago. Sadly they never made a sequel, it was an 'unfinished business' sort of ending (for me anyway). The lead actors/actresses were great.

I didn't know what shiokara was so I had to look it up

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiokara

Do they really eat it like that or do they mix it in with cooking food like fish sauce or oyster sauce? I could see using it as a seasoning or something. But the description doesn't sound very nice.
