The Dark Abyss

I have a friend and I know that she needs support and help. Lately, many of us have noticed that something is off. Last week, she was much more quiet and sad, she didn’t talk to us and when we sat next to each other on the bus, she listened to music the entire time.

I have a feeling of what’s going on but how do I approach her? Should I sugarcoat it and subtly get to the problem? Or just straight up ask her? When they said high school would be interesting with dramas and  identity crisis, I never thought I would happened to be involved or know of it.

Please help me, so I can help her.

A New Year

In just two days, will be 2015. TWO DAYS. In two days, a whole new year of surprises and the unknown will happen. I’m pretty excited but also heartbroken. My memories of 2014 will eventually fade away as I enter a new year and I really love what happen this year.

Many things happen this year, that were eventful and dull. I performed many times in front of crowds, finished another school year and started a new one. Made and lost so many friends, and just did my daily life of eating, school and sleep. I also discovered many new obsessions like Kpop and anime that took up most of my sleeping time.

I love what happened this year and I’m sorry that it’s coming to an end. It literally felt like it was January just a few days ago. Time flies by quick. Too quickly for my taste.

Anyways, 2014 is coming to an end and 2015 is right around the corner! I hope to see you guys soon in the blogging world next year. Happy New Year!

AnoHana the Movie

This movie was basically a summary of the rest of the Super Peace Busters feelings and what happen during the entire show. It’s nice to see them still together, even after Menma officially left. The letter scene still got me crying! I also like Anaru with her new outfit and her hair down. She should have worn it like that during the anime!

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.”

Fullmetal Alchemist

Well dang, this anime was really good. I mean, really good. But before I go on about my thoughts and everything let me introduce to you what’s it about.

Summary:

When Edward and Alphonse Elric were kids, their mother passed away. Sadden by her death, they try to bring her back to life but ended up doing a failed human transmutation. During the transmutation, they lost their limbs or in Al’s case, their whole body. In order for them to bring back their body parts, they have to use the legendary Philosopher’s Stone.

Thoughts:

Three words I can best describe it is, heartbreaking, mess-up and badass.

Heartbreaking: This will pull at your heart strings. They will give you the most amazing characters and then just kill them. Why do this to my emotions?!?

Mess-up: The things in this anime is just plain wrong. It’s gore and the way some character’s die is just freakin bloody. Weirdly, that makes me like this anime more.

Badass: Amazing fight scenes! It combines alchemy with the regular one-two, BAM. It’s nice to see that Ed doesn’t always win. I personally don’t like it when the main protagonist always wins in a fight. That just makes that character too strong and hard to believe.

Worthy Character Mentions:

Let’s start with Ed. I like how short he is because I notice that sometimes the hero is really tall. It’s nice to see a change.

This is why we drink out milk Ed

Although, many people don’t like Al, he is personally one of my favorites. In some part of the season, he becomes uncertain of who he is. Is he human? Does his metal suit of armor, make him human? Just because his soul is in it? The whole identity crisis is something that I like to see because it’s something that many of us has to face.

Now let’s talk about the Flame Alchemist, aka Roy Mustang. I thought that he would be a serious character like Levi from Attack on Titan. He can be serious, but there is times, when is funny.

I have so many other characters that I want to talk about but then this post would be really long. Before I finish this up I just wanna say one more thing:

Royai(Roy and Hawkeye) should have happened! 

Whoops, I lied. I forgot to put down the first opening. Well here it is:

“Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy’s first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world’s one and only truth.”
