みかーちゃんがんばります!

DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA //s h o t

Hello there ( in a fail Jap accent ).

MUKYAAAAAAAA ( fail Nodame imitation )!

Now you’re probably wondering why I’m so hyper right? I just finished reading House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones and I love her books. I didn’t even know it existed until today because I was looking through Miyazaki-san’s list of movies and looked a little more into the origins of Howl’s Moving Castle. I’ve read the novel before and I love both the movie and the book. So when I found out it was a series involving appearance by Howl, Sophie, Calcifer and OMG THEIR SON, I was definitely gonna read it ( wonder what happened to Markl? ).  I started reading the book the moment I downloaded the EPUB XD I ADORED THAT BOOK ( will post a review soon ). So, due to my hyperness ( thanks to the book ), I was browsing randomly for drama that were kinda like Hana Kimi and came across two recommendations called Liar Game and One Pound Gospel. I’ve heard of OPG ’cause I was watching this video of Kame-kun’s funny moments and it featured him jumping onto a punching bag going “Love Love Jump” or something T^T I swear I cried laughing at that moment ’cause his voice sounded so epic. That’s why I’m going to start by watching OPG and then Liar Game and then maybe read the manga ^_^ 

SO Y E A H <– I’ve taken a liking to leaving spaces ^^”

II Why I’m an Otaku, you ask? II { C O N T A I N S ● S P O I L E R S }

I was just considering the question above [ title ]  some while ago and I just realised after watching an amazing AMV by a YouTube user. Occasionally, all otakus will see a main character die, just like that. It’s shocking and heart wrenching, in a way that only those who’ve been through the journey with the character will understand. This is not something that only applies to anime or manga, it applies to cartoon, dramas and live actions. My love for anime and manga continues to grow because I know that there’s always some hidden gems that will take us by surprise and let us enjoy, think and feel with the characters. In Ef~A Tale of Melodies, Yuuko-chan died and it wasn’t just like some bad guy dying. It was because we all got to know her pains and her times of happiness with Yuu-kun. It was really heartbreaking when she died. The OSTs ( anime ) and actions of the characters always matter in such situations, which, in this case, Yuu-kun dropped the bouquet of flowers he was carrying and ran to Yuuko-chan. How he shook her, how little Mi-chan was crying, it all added up to the moment. Similarly, when Nuriko in Fushigi Yuugi died, I really was horrified. It was completelytotally unexpected. Why did Nuriko, who just discovered his/her love for Miaka, have to  die? Or perhaps you might consider when the character’s troubled are finally over, all she/he has fought for is finally justified. Some anime these days, I have no intention of watching because the storyline really sucks. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to judge it by its cover. Right now, I’m into older anime and historical manga. I love anime and manga for being what they are ^_^

I’ve actually been talking about death a lot in here. I want to share with you all this underrated manga called “Lady Mitsuko”. Just thinking of the title makes me want to cry. When Heinrich passed away, I was like “WHAT THE SHIT YOU CAN’T JUST DIE LIKE THAT HEINRICH!” It was really sad, after all he went through with Mitsuko. I was really saddened when Mitsuko lost her way but she gained it and the ending was really great. It’s a very inspirational and beautiful manga, based on a true story.

To all those people who judge otakus/manga/anime without knowing anything about it/them, I really feel sorry for them. If they think it’s just about cute voices, big eyes and fanservice, they’re dead wrong. Most anime and manga have wonderful characters who are unique individuals and they contain so much that you wouldn’t expect. This is my experience and I think I’ve given you all enough evidence to prove it.
