    Not familiar with it, but Ive had a similar problem a while back. Try humming the tune (if you remember) into soundhound or similar app and then when you have the name of the song, search for animes with that song, hope that helps :-)

    Perfect Blue, maybe? :hmmmm2: It's been a while since I watched it myself, but it's the only fairly well-known older anime movie that combines stage performances and horror that springs to mind. :p:



    If not, let me know of anything else you remember, and I'll try again.

    Pretty sure it was a movie, not a series. The graphics do look similar though so its of that "anime era" i tried googling something like "anime headlight falls on stage" but with no luck...oh and i think that strange face man gave the girl some tickets at some point for a show or something

    Ah, the whole movie thing threw me, I didn't think about OVAs. :p: I've only seen the 1984 TV series, myself.

    I have a similar problem with this anime that involves a creature that`s a massive beige dog/ pig and he`s friends with two kids (a girl and a boy) and I can remember he had a laptop and was a vegetarian? He reminds me a bit of totoro but deffo not totoro.

    Hi could anyone help me name this anime. I remember the opening starts with a woman chasing some guys who robbed a bank, she ends up crashing her car and going into a coma. Whilst in the coma she's in a military team that go into some weird village in the middle of the desert. Weird stuff happens in the village and they get attacked by the villagers, when they try and leave the village they get telephoned back in every time. But that's all I have to go on
