Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji

I don’t really understand why I keep re-watching series when there are so many out there that I haven’t seen yet! But that’s just life I suppose. Latest to be re-watched is Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji, or Wolf Girl & Black Prince as the English title. It got me thinking about relationships and especially the notion of that a relationship should be like. Should be being the key word here, according to whom? I know I’m just like Erika, growing up with American movies and soap operas I definitely have a twisted view of how I should feel, how we should act, what we should do etcetera when we’re in a relationship. Needless to say my boyfriends been as impressed as Sata-kun ^^

Many might argue that as girls we are fed the fairy tales where the knight in shining armor comes to the rescue and that gives us the expectation that really we don’t need to do anything – just wait and he will come whisk you away and there will be a happy ending. Or something. And I guess the American high school movies build upon that too – go around as your nerdy you, some mister popular will loose a bet and make you his homecoming queen and you’ll live happily ever after. And this would then be the reason to why we have notions of how things should be so that you will have your happy ending. Do these things and happiness will follow. Erika thinks they need to see the flowers, feed each other and hold hands – cause that how it is done, that is how your are happy together! While Sata-kun would rather hang out at home and watch a movie (I totally agree (and I think Erika will too when she discovers making out..)) but that is never shown in movies…

I must say I’m starting to like these Japanese animes, they seem more real and down to earth. Well, of course not all ^^ but many of the shoujo stories doesn’t end with a ‘happily ever after’ and even though I find that annoying I still think it’s nice. Either you leave it at that, the story was just a snapshot of their lives and move on. Or you continue on to the fanfictions sites and have your fill 😀 Regardless, the story in it self isn’t giving you the idea that it’s over after they find each other, there are more stories after. And that’s my point here – just because you get your love the story doesn’t end, it’s merely the beginning!
