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.

Slice of Life, Moe and Comedy in Anime

 

K on.jpeg

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.

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.

Synopsis

Takanashi Souta is persuaded by the cute and small Taneshima Popura to work part time in a family restaurant called Wagnaria. Due to his fondness over small and cute things, Takanashi accepted the offer. Little does he know that the restaurant are full of weird and eccentric people. But, he himself is weird too…

Review

I started watching this anime only for stress relieve. I didn’t expect it to be that good. Judging by the cover alone I thought it was just another comedy anime. It turns out that it is more than that. The comedy, for one really hits my taste and the plot too is really compelling especially when they are given a chance to make multiple seasons.

Differences Between Myself and Tomoko from Watamote

Watamote

No, I’m not going to compare my current self with her. We are nothing alike now. I’m much more social than before. However, I want to make a comparison between her and my elementary self since at that time I had a serious social anxiety. I mean, I actually couldn’t bring myself to the counter of Mc Donalds and buy a happy meal. Yes I was that socially awkward. Well then, let’s compare ourselves.

Toradora Review

toradora-anime

Synopsis

Takasu Ryuji likes Aisaka Taiga’s best friend Kushieda Minori. Aisaka Taiga likes Takasu Ryuji’s closest friend Kitamura Yusaku. Ryuji finds out who Taiga likes and Taiga finds out who Ryuji likes. Thus, they make a promise to help each other out.

Review

You know, summarizing a romance anime is pretty easy because the premise is really simple. But for people only reading the synopsis, they might be turned off by it (and confused because of the many names). It’s basically the same like any other romance drama out there. Simply said, the appeal of a romance genre is not in the plot but in the characters. So then, let’s go straight to the characters. I’ll explain about the two main characters pretty briefly because I don’t really think they’re that interesting compared to other characters.
