How my Sunday went

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.


Anime Marathon (Day 3)

It’s a Monday and I was on sick leave because my dysmenorrhea got worse. I decided to finish watching Diabolik Lovers and watch another anime since I cannot do much because of my cramps.
As mentioned, I watched Diabolik Lovers. It took me 3 tries to start watching this series. Why so many attempts? It”s because I find the protagonist cringey. So cringey. I cannot bring myself to watch it because Yui is so helpless. 

This show reminds me of a harem Twilight. Yui is Bella and the Sakamaki brothers are all Edwards. Thankfully, I was able to finish this series finally. I was able to finish it because I was interested on knowing what will Yui do while staying in the Sakamaki household. I was also interested in each brothers’ personality. I like Ayato, Shu, and Subaru. Kanato was interesting too. All I could say in this series is they have harsh mothers. I feel bad with the triplets for having an abusive mother. Cordelia is so evil. 

Next anime I watched is Ao Haru Ride. I was craving for some rom/com. This anime always comes up in the top 10 romcoms but never watched it because I heard it has a sad ending, drama, etc. I wondered how come it’s sad if it’s categorized in romcom. I read the plot and found no sad ending so I finally decided to watch it.

I love it! I love the anime so much. I just find their eyes so huge. It is a simple story and the plot is not complicated which I like. I like that Futaba was honest to Yuuri about her feelings to Kou. She really wants to love Kou and she was ready to lose her friend since they like the same guy unlike other plots who sacrificed their feelings for their friends instead of being honest. I love Kou because even if he speaks harshly he’s kind in the end.

One of my fave scenes was the window scene where he hugged Futaba because she’s crying. The scene was very cute and you can tell he really cares for her despite of his harsh way of speaking to her.

Another fave scene of mine was the Leadership camp where Kou found Futaba lying on a desk late at night. 

Kou also laid his head beside her and they talked that way and when they finally met each other faces, ahhhhhh, hearts everywhere. My most favorite part of this scene is when Kou suddenly turn his back because they were both surprised being so close face to face and Futaba pat his head and nuzzled her nose in his hair. So sweet!!! Then Kou taking her hand and asked her if she loves him. Hearts. Hearts. All I see in this scene are hearts. 

I also love the part where they fell on the hill and Kou finally showed his weakness and cried while hugging Futaba. That was the sweetest scene ever. 

After watching this series, I watched its live action movie.

First impression: the guy is from Death Note and girl looks like Yuka Kinoshita.Shouka is so pretty and Kukichi is so cute. So cute! 

Since I didn’t read the manga, I thought I was skipping the movie because the story was progressing fast. After remembering the manga’s plot, I realized that the anime is just like 1/4 of the whole story and a lot happened after it. 

I really hate Narumi because she’s so selfish and I find Kou jerkier here than in anime. I almost voted for Kikuchi because Kou always ditches Futaba. I still shipped for them in the end. 

Anime Marathon (Day 2)

It’s a Sunday today and I decided to watch more animes since I’m on my period and I have nothing else to do because of dysmenorrhea. 

First movie I watched is Hotarubi no Mori e. Dude, I debated in watching this since I know it’s a sad movie and I don’t like sad endings. Why do beautiful movies often has a sad ending? Why? I always see screencaps of this movie in social media but often forget the title. I just always remember it’s a sad movie so I googled “Sad anime movies” and found it.

It was touching. Their relationship has no physical contact but they were able to build a close relationship. It’s this simple things that touches me. They have fun even if they have limitations in contact. They only meet every summer but they were able to touch each other’s hearts. I use the word “touch” a lot because it touched me but ironic that they do not actually touch. lol. They knew they’re never gonna be together and the festival is their last. But still, it’s so sad.

And then I reached the part where Gin is about to disappear because he accidentally touched a human child (see? a child again), I found it beautiful and sad.  I wanted to tear up when he said he can finally hug Hotaru. My heart, my dear heart. It is indeed a beautiful movie even if it has a bittersweet ending. 

To cope up with the sadness, I watched Attack On Titan Season 2. More deaths to forget the sadness. It sounds sadistic but I did watch it. I was really planning to wait for the whole season to finish so I could prepare myself with more deaths since in this anime, a lot of people die. 

I first read what the episodes are about now and got confused since I thought Armin is already a titan, Berthold’s already dead, and so is Erwin. Only to find out I mixed the plots I read and that I actually read the plot of the current manga instead of the anime. To tell you the truth, I am reading the plots first before watching it because I am making sure that Levi is not dead. I love Eren but I love Levi more and Levi’s the reason I’m watching it. 

They’re still screaming Eren’s name a lot since Eren still loses control because of his emotions. I am sometimes annoyed with Christa because she’s so helpless and I already hate Zeke Yeager/Beast Titan. I find Berthold and Reiner’s transformation really amazing. The animation is so beautiful. I feel a bit bad about them because it seems they got attached already. I always do my research before watching and I already knew since season 1 they’re titan shifters. Ymir annoys me a bit because it seems in the last episode she sides with Reiner because of what Reiner said about Christa’s future. Sasha amuses me now and I was so afraid for her when she used an arrow to attach the titan. I am looking forward for this anime. Please don’t kill Levi. 

I used to watch Attack on Titan and Tokyo Ghoul on the same day but I heard nothing from Tokyo Ghoul yet. Sad. 

Cheese in the Trap – Completed

Yes! ‚ÄčI completed reading Cheese in the Trap and ahhhh, the feels! I am so satisfied with the epilogue. It completed me. Seeing Yoo Jung cry like that because he realized everything is done and so scared to lose Seol I was in awe because he has changed so much and I’m happy. I was also relieved thay Seol thinks in a mature way and really loves Jung that she doesn’t want them to break up but to kept on trying. My heart, ahhhh. I’m truly going to miss this series and I didn’t know it’s been running for 7 years. Wow!

I want to shed a tear because this webtoon/manhwa is so different from the usual stories. It depicts real life. The ending was simple but realistic. I was really preparing myself for them to break up because of the differences of Seol and Jung but guess what? They didn’t break up. In the end, they’re still together. I thought in the last few chapters they’re gonna break up. Seeing Jung crying breaks my heart but I’m glad he was able to express himself.

Unlike the drama version, it was so clear that there was no love triangle in the first place. Seol never looked or felt romantic with Inho. She only looked at him as a friend. Baek-Inha was a surprise to me because I was really comparing the drama version and webtoon version only discovering that the last few eps of the drama was totally different with the manhwa. She was only looking for belongingness and for someone to stay with her. I’m glad Jaewoo and her are still in touch.

As for our JungSeol couple, I knew that the little girl Professor Baek was describing was Seol but I didn’t expect that little JungSeol have already met when they were kids. 

Season 4 really showed a lot of the stories in Jung’s side. He wasn’t weird. He was misunderstood and I felt bad for him for having a father like that. My favorite part was the epilogue. Jung crying because he realized everything he has done and regretting it. He understood everything now and he is so scared for Seol to leave. “Do you hate me now?” saying that while crying. My heart. </3 And Seol saying “Are you the sunbae I know. You’re like a child.” But no, she doesn’t hate him. Ahh, that scene. Then the parents suddenly appear. Hahaha. Privacy please, parents and Joon! Lol.

My most fave part in the epilogue was Seol saying that even if she still doesn’t understand how Sunbae thinks, she doesn’t want to break up but keep on trhing. That struck me so much. She was even the one asking if Jung will leave. 

Ahhh. This story. I will miss this! The hugs and the holding hands, there were all touching and sincere.

 I am looking forward to the movie especially now that I discovered that the author (Soonki) herself is the one writing the script. Either it’s a continuation of the drama, an after story, or the whole manhwa, I’m looking forward for it.

As for me, I’m still reading other stories like UnOrdinary but Cheese in the Trap is truly unforgettable and unique. It will always be one of my favorites.
