Anime Merchandise

As an obsessive anime fan I am, of course I want to buy some merchandise! My parents, don’t really give me allowance so all I do is dream of stuff I want to collect. Here’s some things I’m planning to buy one day in my life:

My future cuddle buddy

Dango, dango, dango,dango, dango…

I have tons more but those were just some examples.

AnoHana: The Flower We Saw That Day

Ticket for the feels train?

You know how to tell if an anime was good? If you felt the emotions that the character’s experience. If you felt their happiness, love and sadness. I felt all that when I watched this anime. I felt their happiness when they were together, their love for one another, and their sadness for themselves and mostly for Menma.

Gist:

10 years ago, one of the members of the Super Peace Busters named Menma, died in an accident. Afterwards, they slowly drifted apart as life went on. One summer day, Jintan saw the ghost of Menma and agrees to fulfill her wish. In order to do that, he needed to gather the rest of their group to do help. Along the way, they remember memories of the past and struggles of the present.

Let’s meet the characters!

Jinta Yadomi aka Jintan
Meiko Honma aka Menma
Naruko Anjō aka Anaru
Atsumu Matsuyuki aka Yukiatsu
Chiriko Tsurumi aka Tsuruko
Tetsudō Hisakawa aka Poppo

In the beginning, it was really slow and a bit confusing. Then when it hit the middle, it was getting progressively sad and when I finally finished it, I was crying. Clannad and Angel Beats were heartbreaking also but it didn’t actually make me cry. There were no tears running down my face, unlike Anohana. It builds up all the emotions, so you can let it all out in the end. The best 11 episodes of my life.

SPOILERS DOWN BELOW

Although it was super depressing to watch, there were one thing that I did find quite creepy. In the end, we find out that Yukiatsu really did love and still does love, Menma. There is nothing bad of loving someone, it just depends of how extreme you are of it. Dressing up as Menma, who is already dead, and even having a wig is just beyond creepy. Stroking, caressing and smelling the wig, is just disturbing. I also felt really bad for Satoshi. Satoshi is the younger brother of Menma and was little when she died. After, the accident, his mother began to neglect him because she was too depressed over her daughter. It must have been terrible to live in a household like that because he wasn’t treated as well as he could have been.

The ending was just too much. With the hide and seek and the letters…my emotions can’t handle it. I’m even tearing up just by typing and thinking about it!

“You found me.”

Anime Music

I am a huge fan of anime music. HUGE. When I hear the openings and ending I try to sing it in my best Japanese I could. Months ago I discovered an two amazing pianists who plays anime music. He is known as ~ishter-kun~ and he covered many anime songs from Psycho Pass, Anohana, Angel Beats, Clannad, Attack on Titan, SAO, 5 Centimeters per Second and many more.

Also, there is another amazing anime pianist known as Animez who has covered No Game No Life, Kill la Kill, Attack on Titan, Angels Beats, Code Geass, Guilty Crown, Mirai Nikki and many more.

Here’s a duet of ishter and Animez!

There is mostly likely more animes on the Want to Watch list but there is so many I can’t remember! I also have a feeling that I forgot to put down some animes on Watched list… hm. Also, ask away if you are confused because I just realized how confusing this might be.

Clannad season 1

Hilo everybody! After watching Angel Beats! I watched the other sad anime I heard about, Clannad. When I was on Youtube listening to Angel Beats! music, I read comments on anime suggestions. Some of them were about Clannad. But it was the second season not the first,Clannad After Story. To understand After Story your have to watched the first season. Its like reading the last Harry Potter book without reading any of the others.

So since I just finish the Angel Beats!, I thought,” Hm, my tissues are still next to me. Might as well keeping watching more sad things.” So I did. Never used the tissues.

The reason? Because it was so boring! It was mostly talking and talking and then *gasp* flashback then talking. It didn’t really bring out a lot of emotions from me. I was just going through the motions of watching and processing what’s happening. My heart wasn’t really in it. That sounded cheesy.

Anyways, I’m already done with the first season and is on the 8th episode of After story. I guess  it’s getting better. I can’t say for sure since I got 16 episodes left!
