I cannot change my body clock anymore. No matter how late I sleep, I always wake up at 6 or 7am. I could feel my eyes feel droopy because I’m still sleepy but I cannot sleep anymore. It’s supposed to be a rainy season but it’s so hot and dry today. I’m stuck at home since I don’t have money to go out. I just browsed Youtube and social medias before finally continuing my anime marathon.
These days, I tend to watch series or movies that are in a foreign language. I’m not sure what’s up with me but it’s my interest at the moment. I don’t know why but watching in foreign language and watching subs is a fun thing to do right now for me. I feel that watching these kind of movies and series makes it quite interesting since they have a different culture and far from the usual Hollywood movies. This is just my opinion. I promise to add more screencaps in my posts. All of the images I get are either from Pinterest or Google. I really do want to add screencaps of my favorite scenes to make my post more interesting but it’s quite hard using an iPad. I’m trying to save up to buy a laptop to make things easier. I passed my laptop to my younger siblings thinking that I wouldn’t need it anymore since I’m done with college and I have my tablet. I kinda regretted that decision. Hehe.
Anyway, I watched Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo as a recommendation from a friend. I have nothing else to watch so I just went with it and liked it. It gave me an idea of an artist’s life as a student.
I watched a lot of movies rekationg to art students but never about a manga artist or an animator and it’s really interesting for me. It’s adorable that Sorata is the cat guy since usual characters have cat ladies. I can relate to Sorata’s character. His feelings when his hard work doesn’t pay off while Mashiro gets all opportunities in a silver platter but then again, I got to see how a genius work. They put a lot of effort and hard work too in their work. They are also pure of determination and dedication. I find it admirable that the 2 geniuses, Misaki and Mashiro, don’t pressure themselves in other people’s expectations knowing they are geniuses. They just do what they want to do. It’s fun to see a game in an anime and it got me interested in game designing though I don’t play a lot of games.
I ship Sorata and Mashiro because they complement each other. I really dislike Nanami because she’s interfering my ship. I was like “wtf” when all of them were searching for Mashiro, especially Sorata who was frantic and she decided to tell all of those feelings to Sorata and here I am thinking i thought they’re panicking to find Mashiro. I find Akasaka and Rita cute because rhey have totally opposite personalities and Rita still pursues Akasaka. In addition to that is the fact they’re the first couple to kiss. Lol.
It was also an achievement for me to watch a 24-episode anime in 1 sitting and without staying up late since I finished it by 6pm. Congratulations to tue girl who cannot finish a series and prefers to postpone the ending because she got too attached with the characters and cannot accept that it’s over. I guess I passed throught that stage because I really loved the characters and the story and I was really hoping to finish it and I did. My attachment issues in anime is finally fixed although I have to be honest I almstcteared up in the graduation and goodbye part because I remembered my high school graduation. I really hate goodbyes. Too bad Jin wasn’t shown in the hot pot party for the new borders. He was the only one missing. Nanami is not needed there(so bitter of me).
After finishing the series it, I was surprised I didn’t feel an empty space in my chest. The feeling of not knowing what to do next but I was sure I do not want to watch another anime series for now since it’s already late. I felt sad that I was done with series so I decided to find some comedy movies only to end up with a drama movie. I was really planning to watch Beauty and the Beast movie since I wasn’t able to watch it properly since my Aunt just talked all throughout the movie. But then, thinking about it, it’ll be boring since I already know the story. I was trying to find comedy but nothing’s catches my interest. I decided to check Animation genre and found A Silent Voice. I was having doubts in watching this since it’s drama and I read the manga. I was afraid to cry but I saw in my thumbnail in my Recommended section in Youtube that it’s one of the best romance movies so I watched.
It was beautiful although 2 hours is so long. I got really pissed with Ishida’s friends for denying that they were bullying Shouko espcecially Ueno. I really hate her . She’s the one who started it all. Ishida was mean but so is his friends. I know karma hit him badly since everything he did to Shouko returned to him but what got me pissed is the same bullies who bullied Shouko are the ones bullying him minus, of course, himself. When he ripped off the calendar and started crossing out days, I knew he was planning to kill himself and I was like “what the f why do I know that”. My least favorite character is Kawai. She’s plastic. Always playing safe and blame someone else from her mistakes. Not because she said harsh things loudly doesn’t mean she’s innocent because she did nothing to stop the bullies. She kaughed with them and tolerated them. I don’t really know if she showed genuine feelings in the last parts or she’s just pretending to let people know she’s harmness.
It’s beautiful that Ishida really regretted his actions and he took the effort of learning sign language. This movie just showed me that we cannot erase our past actions. Starting anew is hard and returning friendship the same way as before isn’t that easy or will never be the same. All we can do is accept and apologize. I was moved in the last part where Ishida removed his hands from his ears to block everyone and he started to hear everything. This scene to me seems like he’s going to participate in life again and new hope.
