Assalamou Alaykom, skyrockers :D
I had my finals last week. I'm free. Well, my freedom is still loading, and it's nearly there. I've only few days left until my spring break. in few days, i'll be off school for 2 weeks, or maybe even a month.
When I had my finals, what do you think I'd been doing? Normal people revise, study and learn. As for me, I guess I'm not so normal. I'd been watching anime. I'd seen: Kimi Ni Todoke.
I loved Kimi Ni Todoke. It shows us that no matter what we look like, we should be comfortable in our skin, that it's okay to be different, that we'll always be loved no matter who we are in this world. It also shows how sometimes we can be so wrong about our thoughts and feelings, that sometimes what we think is fake, is actually real.
The 2nd anime was: Special A. Special A has quickly become one of my favourites. That anime proves that although we are rivals, an some sort of enemies, deep inside we can be lovers and friends. Sometimes, we can also be cold and mysterious, but that doesn't mean we don't care, or we are insensitive. we shouldn't judge people from what we just see, we have to look deep inside of them.
the third one was Vampire Knight. I have so many feelings about this anime. like so many. ever since i watched it, i've been thinking about Zero, one of the main characters. i ever downloaded the manga on my phone. it's such a beautiful anime! i wish they would turn it into a drama, and movie. it really deserves to be watched and seen by everyone. it's about secrets, love and vampires. everyone should watch it. it's truly awesome. it's the best japanese shoujo anime i've ever seen so far. the manga is pretty good as well.
i had also seen "Kaichou Wa Maid Sama". I'll never get over Usui's perfection. This boy sacrificed a lot for his love. he kissed a boy, disguised himself as a waiter, made his girl think she was his enemy so she'd not take pictures with another boy. i admire his courage, and sacrifice. he did all he could to get his girl.he fought for her, and never let her down. he was always there beside her whenever she needed him. but, she only realized all that at the end. although, i'm so happy with the ending, they should write like season 2, or something. it's really worth watching.
I had also seen "Fruits Basket". It didn't capture much my attention, although sometimes the main female character would say a lot of interesting, wise words but, the plot and story hadn't so much to talk about, and the ending wasn't so clear. sometimes, i would feel that the girl is way too fake, and plastic. after all, this is my opinion. and to end my week, i saw Myself, Yourself again. it's really awesome. an anime treating so many problems in our society such as "love and age", "suicide and loneliness", "music and depression." You can never get tired of that anime.
Anyways, i want to make something clear. There's a difference between Manga and Anime.
Anime is the cartoon version of the manga.
for example: I've seen the Anime and have read the manga. You can't say "I've seen that manga!" well, no.
Manga is the written version of the anime. it like has photos, and bubbles with what each character says.
I hope you all can understand this, because a lot of people think it's the same thing, but they're different. however, anime and manga are both stuff that only Japan produces. For example: american cartoons are not anime, and captain america (the magazine) is not a manga.
and now, i leave you with my picture :D it says "Baka". it's a Japanese word for "idiot".
Leave me your comments! what anime have you seen? what manga have you read? what do you prefer: anime or manga? also, i need some suggestions. i don't know what i shall watch now, so help me out :3 you have probably noticed that i love shoujos (romantic anime) but, i also like mystery and adventure (i.e: death note, and hunter x hunter).
