What I liked

Her graphic backgrounds; her leaping vitality; her amusing view of living the good life. A friend who saw the performances said:
"I always wanted to be Japanese.!

What I didn't like

Maybe fewer sound effects and more words to reflect conflicting cultural angst.

My overall impression

Her stories will beguile you, they’ll raise your Blood Pressure. They’ll squish, twist and trounce you. Her innocent presence (HA!) will engage you. Fool you.
