I finished Pikunikku aka Picnic (1996)last night. The sadness is lingering. It seems that I can't shake it off. His movies are so quite unique. I will go for Swallowtail Butterfly next.

@g2 I haven't seen that one but I found a nice review with screen caps at Review, it looks really good.

I got the Rainbow Song (2006) raw with autotranslated file of subs. I'm having fun in deciphering of what each dialogue means. It is like CSI work. Now I know what you went through with the other autotranslated sub. :) Feel your pain but the storyline is too good to let it go. Please let me know if you want the link to Pikunikku. I got my good sub from Kloofy.net

@G2Please let me know if you want the link to Pikunikku.
Sure I'd love it, after 12 years I guess we won't be seeing a Region 1 DVD release. Kloofy's subs are usually very good, and always preferable to a bot translation.
