Conclusion of Anime and Its Genres

eromanga

This is the wrap up of my genre posts. From my previous posts, it’s very obvious that I like a light-hearted genre more than a dark and depressing genre. Especially now that I’m in my final semester of college where there are many things to do but I have no idea how to do them. At all. But I’m expected to do great at them… God just let this end quick!

As you can see from my previous posts, I generalize the genre to make it easier for me to differentiate. I usually see romance as something very related to drama so I lump those two together. Granted there are romantic comedy so it’s categorized as comedy.

The Dark Horror Genre in Anime

Horror anime

I have a confession… I have never watched a single horror genre anime in my life. Not even the popular anime, Another. Okay another confession… I actually don’t know what classifies an anime as a horror. If something like Future Diary or Death Note is considered a ‘horror anime’ than I’ve watched quite a few of anime like that. If horror anime should be similar to usual horror movies, than I don’t think I’ve watched any. Is there any real horror anime to begin with?

Shounen Anime

It’s safe to say that shounen anime is the most popular genre of anime. From the big three of Naruto, One Piece and Bleach, shounen anime somehow wins the audience attention including myself.

I really don’t get how the shounen anime is categorized. It’s basically anime targeted towards young boys right? Is that the only category that they narrow? I mean, sure whatever young boys like, right? Of course the most popular is action series. But young boys also like comedy and cute girls. Are those anime considered shounen? How come Death Note is considered shounen? It barely has any action scenes!!!

Slice of Life, Moe and Comedy in Anime

Is there any ‘slice of life’ drama out there other than anime? Well usually it is associated with comedy.

Slice of life, by definition should explore the representation of our lives. It should represent our daily lives in a realistic manner. It is usually about people’s ordinary life routine which more often than not, is mundane.

However, anime seems to be doing quite the opposite. True, they are still about ordinary daily lives but somehow they managed to make it more interesting than it should be. Slice of life is usually combined with comedy and Moe.

Hi everyone, I’m back again!!!

Romantic genre in anime is a hit and miss for anime watchers. Some like it because of their innocence and some don’t because of their shallowness. Which group do I fall into? I fall into the . My blog is filled with Romance genre anime… I think? Lel I don’t even remember my blog anymore…

I think there are more romance genre anime that I’ve watched than any other genre. I’m a sucker for romance genre. I’m basically obsessed with romance genre. Well obsess is a strong word, maybe it’s just my favourite genre in anime.

SNAFU Opening Song Analysis

My Teen Romantic Comedy Snafu Too Opening Lyrics.mp4_20171229_114030.569

Hey everyone! So today I’m going to examine the meaning behind the lyrics of the opening song of an anime called ‘My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong as I Expected’. I will analyze the reasoning behind the lyrics and go deeper into it. I really love this series and I recommend all of you to watch it. Bear in mind most of the messages from the anime are very implicit so you have to observe carefully to really understand the story. Don’t expect too much though because I’m not really good at this. Just thought I’d try. Lel. If you want to watch the opening of this anime, you can watch it here.

Takanashi X Inami is The Cutest Anime Couple Ever!

takanashi-and-inami

Okay not really. My favourite couple is probably Okabe and Kurisu from Steins;Gate. But we’re not here to talk about them, we’re here to talk about a couple in an anime I just finished recently. Working! (it’s an anime title).

*Spoilers ahead so proceed with caution*

Working! Has two main ships. One is Satou and Todoroki and another one is Takanashi and Inami. Obviously, my favourite couple in this series is the latter. The main reason is because Inami blushes ALL the time and that makes the mundane and cliché scenes cute and adorable.
