How to be a Totoro!

Sometimes, I really miss Totoro and just have to write about it, you know?
So I decided to put together a guide on how you can be a Totoro. A lot of people think Totoro is the name of the character but it actually simply means "a spirit of the forest." That's why they come in all shapes and sizes. :)
Without further delay, here's how you too can be a Totoro!

1. Raise a bunch of mini Totoros.

They are basically minions, but more mischievous.

2. Befriend a catbus.

You should be able to find one at the nearest park.

3. Smile!

Always have a big smile on your face!

4. Nap often.

You are not a true Totoro until you get your daily dose of sleep!

5. Spend time with your buddies.

What better way to be a good spirit than to have fun with friends?

6. Buy a huge umbrella.

You never know when you might get caught in a rainstorm! Always carry it around with you.

7. Let your emotions out!

It's good to scream your heart out every once in a while. Just don't do it near others!

8. Be a night owl.

Preferably on or near a tree. You are trying to be a forest spirit after all. Plus, you'll look cool!

9. Eat your veggies!

You need all that strength to maintain the forest and help out friends!

10. Get a Totoro onesie.

By now, I hope you realized I was only half-serious about a few of the steps...(unless you do find a catbus and raise mini Totoros, then please tell me how it goes!). But if all else fails, you can always get a onesie like this little guy and be a Totoro whenever, wherever!

New Death Note Live Action Film Poster, Release Date
The new Death Note live-action film has finally released a poster showing key visuals for the film as well as the title and release date. This new film will focus on events that have occurred 10 years after the plot of the original manga and anime, with characters who have inherited the legacy of L and Light. From ANN: In the new film's story, a highly advanced information society is beset by global cyber-terrorism in 2016. New charismatic figures, who "inherited the DNA" of Light (previously played Tatsuya Fujiwara) and the detective L (Ken'ichi Matsuyama), emerge. The successors of the two geniuses will wage a war over six Death Notes on Earth. A crucial plot element will be the "Six-Note Rule": Only six Death Notes are allowed to exist at a time in the human world. Of course, the Shinigami (Gods of Death) themselves are limited to the number of Death Notes. Therefore, up to six Shinigami may exist in the human world. This rule existed in the original manga, but previous adaptations in the franchise have not used this rule thus far. I always get weird when it comes to live-action adaptations of popular anime and manga. I feel like there are just some things that don't transition well from the small animated screen to the large living one. I also don't know much about Japanese actors and actresses, so I can't really attest to the strength of the casting here. Really, all I can do is hope that it doesn't suck.
