Anime Girl Excited

Thank you so much Will Sirius for nominating me. Go check out their blog too!

I’ll be answering some really interesting questions. Let’s get started.

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

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.

Joshiraku: Their Clothes and Their Hairstyles

Joshiraku.jpg

Joshiraku is a very funny show. Their first joke is a freaking 4th wall breaker and that actually caught me off guard. Since it is an adaptation of a very dialogue heavy manga, the characters question why someone would want adapt it as an anime in the first place. That particular moment was what made me decide to continue watching this anime until the end. I highly recommend anyone who is into comedy anime to give this a try. The jokes can get a little random and a bit too Japanese at times, meaning that only Japanese people would mostly understand the jokes but even with that, I still think it’s a great comedy anime.

Well I’m not here to review the anime wholly. Rather, I want to point out one particular aspect of the anime which I find very interesting. You see, this anime usually sets in the dressing room of the girl’s working place in a comedy theater. However, every episode, there is a section where the characters go outside of their dressing room and into the city, like going out to the mall or to the amusement park or the hot spring.

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.

Me and Japanese Honorifics

Japanese Honorifics 4

I always wonder, if I live in Japan and abide by the their honorifics rules, how would I call people? To know the answer, we first need to know the basic of honorific rules in Japan. We’ll go through the most common honorifics. This might turn into a ramble about myself and my life. Because it will. Let’s just get to it.

The most basic and common honorific that people use is “san”. It can be applied to almost everyone. It shows distance if two people use “san” to call each other. People usually start calling people with “san” when they first know each other but after they know the person more and become closer, they’ll start to use other honorific like “kun” or “chan” or drop the honorific altogether.
