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!
Started watching a new shoujo anime today: Ore Monogatari!!, a serie about a guy and his first girlfriend and friend. It’s really sweet! One scene I was laughing so hard even bae came out of his cave to see what I was doing 😀
Two things about it:
Sunakawa and Taichi Mashima looks almost the same! I wonder if it’s the same artist? It half bothers me while watching but I guess that’s cause I miss Taichi…
2. I’m half shipping Suna and Takeo, I mean don’t you think there could be more than a bromance going on there? Unrequited love. I think I’ve watched too much BL ^^
Oh, well, bedtime but I’m sure to watch the end tomorrow! Night folks!
Still just in the middle of the first season of Ace of Dimond but I’m starting to doubt I will watch it til the end since the main character Sawamura really annoys me! He is just too much, little brat! However, I am starting to crush a little on Miyuki! If he was like a decade or two older.. He’s hot. Sawamura can be cute too sometimes so I guess I’ll watch for a while longer and hope for some shipping moments ^_^ Who said watching sport animes had anything to do with sports?! I wonder what I’ll get if I google Miyusawa…
But I remember being like this at the start of Kuroko no Basket too.. Still watched all those seasons, read loads of fanfic ^^ Ah, if Miyuki and Sawamura could be like Kuroko and Kagami ❤
Today bae woke me up with breakfast in bed, ah such a nice Saturday morning! We watched Bleach and cuddled. But I must admit, I’m not that much of a Bleach fan yet anyways. It’s such a Shounen anime! And guess what, I’m not a boy 😛 Ok, we’ve only seen like 10-15 episodes yet but I’m not shipping it, it’s just monsters and loud sounds. But, I also guess I will never get bae to watch a Shoujo anime so Bleach it is! Just another 324 episodes to go… Maybe in time there will be a little romance too, Inoue seems quite smitten ^_^
Sometimes when I’m looking for an anime I can’t find it cause the name is translated differently, say with or without a space, eg. Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, or with the words in a different order, eg. Diamond no Ace or Ace of the Diamond – which is the correct spelling/translation? I don’t know, I don’t know Japanese but maybe I should learn! At least the basics and what it looks like with Latin letters? I also get a little confused cause like with the baseball anime here I think one is translated while the other actually is the Japanese name in Latin letters…
The anime I’m watching at the moment is Diamond no Ace and it seems to have potential, I’ve just watched 4-5 episodes but I can see some ships sailing in ^_^ But when I started writing this post about the spelling and stuff I just had to rewatch Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, just an episode! Yeah right ^^ I’ve watched both seasons in a binge now… And then I started rewatching Super Lovers… How am I supposed to watch new animes when I go back to the old ones?!?
I didn’t really think I’d get hooked on a card game anime, but I’m really pissed they only made two seasons of Chihayafuru!! I know there is more manga but I don’t know how to read it, it’s not in color and it all sound so wrong in English instead of Japanese. Gahh!!
I’ve been shipping Chihaya and Mashima, Taichi so hard too 😛 The fanfiction is alright, even though there seems to be more polyamory with Arata too, I don’t mind but mm mm mm, wouldn’t mind a piece of Taichi I tell you! I think I will put him on my favorite list together with Usui, Takumi, Son, Hak, Takano, Masamune and Kaidou, Haru.
Idag har vi signerat och skickat tillbaka lånepapprena till banken på vår nya lägenhet, snart snart får vi flytta in också! Dock så har jag varit lite nere idag, känns som att vi sålt vår själ för ett par miljoner. Det här är mitt första lån nånsin förutom CSN och det känns lite jobbigt, blev därför choklad till middag*. Enligt den återbetalningsplan som vi fick så borde vi dock vara skuldfria år 2049, woohoo!
Lite typiskt att jag hamnade med en ledsen anime idag av alla dagar, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, men ett par tårar skadar väl inte. Ska ta mig en skål gröt nu innan läggdags också tror jag, imorgon är en ny dag, inte en skuldfri men en fri ändå!
* Tröstäter eller straffar mig själv med mat när jag mår dåligt, vissa skär sig – jag överäter eller svälter. Känns ändå som att mitt självskadebeteende är rätt lätt åtgärdat utan permanenta ärr eller skador.
