Anime: the beginnings of a Mother Daughter Tradition

  This Mother’s day I want to take a moment to reminisce on how blessed I am for having an open minded mother. For somehow ending up as the friend who had the ‘cool mom’. And on how I became who I am and why. You can essentially fault my Mother and my Aunts for…

Day 30 – An anime you wish never ended and just continued its story.

Unbreakable Machine Doll There is only one season…one season of a well paced, beautifully animated and interesting world building anime and I want *moar.* It wasn’t necessarily groundbreaking. But all the parts were placed together so well.   The full OST is a beautiful example of orchestral work and a pretty nice rock intro. I’m…

Day 29 – Favorite school uniform

  I was always one of those kids who actually wanted to wear school uniforms. I never had to wear one but as a person who has *never* liked mornings the idea of having a ready, made plan of what to wear on five mornings out of the week was immensely appealing. The only downside…

Day 28 – Favorite pokemon

While I was certainly a child that played Pokemon I was not one that did so at every incarnation. So to choose a favorite is rather simple for me and predictable. But for all of that I have no shame:   EEVEE. Specifically, because it is a jack of all trades and there is a…

Day 25 – Best anime villian

Shou Tucker from Fullmetal Alchemist (any version you like). He’s selfish and uses science as his reasoning to do anything and doesn’t see why other scientists don’t see things the way he does. Too much logic no morality and delusions of the ‘greater good’ due to scientific (alchemical in this world) advancements. He is a selfish…

Day 26 – Favorite anime opening theme song

Music is so important to media that I would argue that most visual media would never be nearly as engaging as it is without it. It’s literally everywhere musical composers are the often unsung hero of the production group. Would Final Fantasy be the same without its music(Typically Composed by Would Final Fantasy be the…

Day 24 – Favorite anime hero or heroine

Shiba Tatsuya from the Irregular at Magic High. Yes, I know he’s appeared on my blog multiple times but…I love him. He’s typically logical and fairly level headed. He’s constantly underestimated because of his standing as the status quo deems it should be. And really, I’m very similar in some ways. I know that at least on…

Day 23 – Anime you think had the best, or most interesting art

There are myriads of anime’s that have beautiful artwork. However, the one with the most interesting, in my opinion, is: Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo It can sometimes be not easy to look at due to all the patterns and colors. In this case, 4K HD may actually be too much for your eyes to…

Day 21 – Favorite goofy character from any anime

Let’s be real in Anime “goofy” characters are a dime a dozen so I had to pick the first one that came to mind: TK from Angel Beats! Angel Beats! Is not for the faint of heart but I heartily recommend it to people as a nice summary as perhaps why so many people love…
