Why is it Kuroko no Basket and not Kagami no Basket?

kuroko ignite pass

When I first watched this anime, I always wondered why the title is Kuroko no Basket instead of Kagami no Basket or any other character names in the anime. This is because Kagami is always in the spotlight. He’s the character that is improving and evolving every single match whereas Kuroko is just there to either relay information about the Generation of Miracles or to enhance Kagami’s ability even more. Kuroko really doesn’t look like the main character in the anime. So I find it quite weird for the title to be his name instead of the more prominent and influenced Kagami.

I got the answer now though. The answer is this anime really is about Kuroko. The overarching plot is about him improving and realizing his flaws ever so slowly that it took almost two seasons before he basically fully develops. All the other characters, while having their own arc, is not as important as Kuroko’s arc.

Four Years Mark: The Only 2018 Anime That I Watched

Fireworks
Happy anniversary to me! This blog is now four years old. Yes relatively, I can be called a veteran now in terms of how long I’ve been sticking around. However, in terms of actual posts, meh… Inconsistent content is kinda my brand now lol but I’ve been active for 6 months now so I hope I can continue to post regularly for at least another 6 months.

As I did in the past years, I will celebrate my anniversary by writing about shows that came out this year that I actually watched. For some reason that I’m unsure of, I don’t watch newer anime that much and I especially don’t watch seasonal anime. So can I fit ALL 2018 shows that I watched this year into one post? Yes, yes I can cause it’s only like 10 shows… Let’s begin.

Online Social Anxiety??

Anime Girl Shy 3.gif

I don’t interact much with people online. Not in any social media for that matter. Even in anonymous forums, or pretty much anywhere online, I just don’t interact with online people much. I honestly think that it  has to do with my social anxiety and the fact that I think it’s pointless to say anything online. Contradictory of myself who freaking has a blog! Hear me out though.

This problem is more of an online thing than a real life problem. Firstly, I can’t seem to comment on other people’s blog. I feel like the things that I have to say has little value or people don’t really care about it. I’m scared of unintentionally offending people so most of the time, I resolve to not commenting at all and just ‘like’ their contents. This sometimes frustrates me because there are times when I think I have something to say but as soon as I wanted to type those words in the comment section, my brain became numb and I forgot everything that I wanted to say. Yea I hate that.

Hanako’s Expression in Asobi Asobase

I recently watched one of the funniest anime I’ve seen which is Asobi Asobase. If you follow the seasonal anime, I don’t think you would miss this freaking good comedy anime in the summer season 2018. I love this series, laughing pretty much the whole time watching it. The OP is very misleading making the three main characters look super innocent and treat each other like best friend forever. Oh man let me tell you, it’s the complete opposite.

But while I like the series as a whole, I think Hanako is the best the series has to offer, from her character to her voice actress (I love her voice) and most importantly, her facial expressions. Especially her facial expressions, seriously. And so because I love her so much, I’m here to present you Hanako’s various expressions.

Portal is a Very Creepy Game

Portal Poster

This time it’s going to be a little bit different because I’m going to talk about a video game I recently played. I think this will be the only occasion where I’ll talk about video game so don’t worry, after this I’ll stick back to my anime format.

Now I’m not a gamer, obviously. I don’t play that much video games. But of course every now and then I’ll play some games to fill in my leisure time and I mostly play the more popular ones. You know, the normal first person shooter games like the Call of Duty and Crysis series, the Command and Conquer genre like the Red Alert series and Generals and sometimes a little bit of The Sims or City Skyline. I’m just a guy who sometimes play games… like normal people. But I do want to share my thoughts and experience of this one particular game that I really like called Portal.

Chuunibyou and My Dark Past

Chuunibyou poses

I’m going to be completely vulnerable here… I have a very embarrassing belief about myself in the past but I’m going to share it anyway because I think it’s worth sharing, and it might be funny…??

Yes I had a chuunibyou phase. Well at least according to what anime described it, I’m pretty sure I was one of the victims. If you don’t know what chuunibyou is, it’s a state when you have delusional beliefs of yourself and usually think you’re some kind of a superhero. Now I don’t remember much about my childhood and I certainly don’t remember much about what I believe I was but there’s one thing that sticks to me until now. And whenever I think about it, I can only feel like punching myself in the freaking stomach.

Why Are All Anime Characters So Fragile??

Anime Sick

I think everyone notices this thing. Why do all anime characters get sick so easily? I feel so frustrated whenever I think about it. Seriously, why? They will have other characters, usually their mother or sister telling the main character “not to be out for too long or you’ll catch cold”. The classic foreshadowing of getting a fever. The thing is, they catch cold impossibly easily! I’m pretty sure they could catch cold by literally everything.

Soaked in water? FEVER!

Sleeping without blanket? FEVER!

Ran in a rain for 10 seconds? FEVER!

Had a brisk walk at the backyard? FEVER!

Opened the refrigerator? FEVER!

Only wearing towels for the rest of the night after bathing…. NO FEVER BECAUSE FAN SERVICE!

Another thing that bothered me is why do all anime characters collapse when they supposedly just have normal fever? Or is it just me? Does everyone experience this? The character would be soaked in water the night before and come to school like normal the next day only to collapse during lunch break out of convenience. I mean, fainting is one of the worst thing to happen to anyone and it’s an indication that their health is seriously servere, they need to be sent to the hospital as soon as possible, but where do they usually send them? To the infirmary. Then it is revealed that the character only has normal fever… because of being soaked in water…

Lastly, why do all the other characters act like the person who got sick will die really really soon?? Anime rule #371: If one character has a fever, all the other characters will act like the character with a fever will die. So they’ll visit him/her, bring some flowers, drink some booze, have a party all night long!!!…. And then the character gets better the next day like nothing happened.

I’m sure there are reasons. As far as I’m concerned, I enjoy watching them despite being illogical. Welp, maybe BECAUSE it’s illogical, I enjoy watching them.

Seriously though, if you know the reasons, please tell me.
