Are the movies relatively accessible for someone coming into it blind? I was always kind of curious about Silent Mobius, but my sole experience of the anime is seeing the TV series dubbed into French.

I'd normally say that you need to watch the tv series before watching the "movies"-which are more like extended regular episodes than movies. I guess you could watch the movies by themselves but you'd be missing out on a lot of the references that assume you'd watched the tv series first.

Had to look up what Yagami's Family Affair was and uh, yeah... good luck. To-Y is one I seem to remember hearing positive things about, but never got around to checking out though, so would be interested to know what you make of that one.

Ahh, yes. I've not seen the film in its entirety (seen a fair bit of it through clips), but I've heard a lot about Penguin's Memory and I'm very curious about where the idea for the film came from. My understanding is that the penguins were popular mascot characters for a brand of beer in Japan at the time, so quite how they got from there to 'serious drama about the effects of war and dealing with PTSD' seems like a bit of a mystery...

Not sure how it all fits together, but amusingly, I'm guessing the film must have also had some influence on the designers at Konami, as the penguin character in the later Parodius games is often depicted with a very similar flak jacket / machine gun combo.
