Ichi Rittoru no Namida (1 Liter of Tears)

I don't really like sob stories and tear jerkers that much, and yet this Japanese drama had me hooked through all 11 episodes. In the end I ended up crying a lot more than one liter of tears, and yet I felt good after watching the entire series.

Wish the relationship between Haruto and Aya had been developed a bit further though. I'm a sucker for romance. Hehe.

I Want More Good Anime! ...With Real Men

It's been getting harder and harder to find anime that I'm interested in lately. As a result I haven't been watching any anime at all since 2012 started. During the long vacation this past week, I decided to get back to watching anime so I tried watching Uta no Prince-sama, Chaos;Head, and Burst Angel, but sadly I just couldn't get past the first couple or so episodes of each. Have I already watched all the good anime in the genre I'm interested in? I hope not.

I would really like to watch more anime in the caliber of Nana, Ouran High School Host Club, Code Geass, Darker Than Black, Death Note, Durarara, Kimi ni Todoke, Hakuouki, Hellsing, and Nodame Cantabile. These are my favorite anime shows ever. I loved both the story and style of drawing (except for Nodame Cantabile because I didn't really like its drawing style but I loved the story).

I'm not saying that I want the same story as these ten great anime shows, because the same story over and over again would be boring. It's not the story but the feel of the story that matters. Basically, I like anime where there are hot anime guys (the more the better) who have a deep emotional connection to a girl in the story. (I also like it when the girls are strong and intelligent or quiet and innocent. I hate loud, frivolous, airhead girls.) I like anime where the men are the ones doing the pursuing, where the men take charge and act like men, not wimpy little fairies who can't even look the girl in the eyes without blushing. These are the things that the anime I mentioned as my favorites above have in common, I think. The men are real men.

Now these guys are real men: Ren Honjo (second from left) and Takumi Ichinose (far right). Oh, I love Nana. I watched the anime and live action movies, and I read the manga but I still want more! :)

First Post of 2012: Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I know I haven't been blogging much for the past few months, and I have to confess that I haven't been watching much anime lately either. I've been reading a lot of manga on my Kindle though (Yes, I got a Kindle as a Christmas gift and I'm so happy. Thank you! ^_^), and I've been watching some J-dramas and a lot of KAT-TUN over the Christmas break. Yes, I am now a KAT-TUN fan! Kamenashi Kazuya is so hot! :D Speaking of KAT-TUN, they're going to have a 5-episode anime to be aired beginning January 13. I'm definitely going to get my paws on this one.

KAT-TUN Love

So, on to my new year's resolutions! Hehe, I haven't really made any yet, but now's a good time. Okay, let's see...

Agenda for 2012:

  • finish Pimsleur's Japanese II (I'm currently at lesson 20 of 30.)
  • finish Pimsleur's Japanese III (Needless to say, I'll have to master Pimsleur's Japanese II first.)
  • master reading and writing hiragana and katakana (I've learned 35 hiragana characters so far.)
  • learn kanji (I'll need a good Japanese dictionary to translate kanji for this.)
  • reach target weight of 100-104 lbs. (I'm 5'2")
  • become more fashion-literate (As of now, I only wear plain shirts, shorts, jogging pants, jeans, and rubber shoes.)
  • write at least 10 more articles on HubPages
  • make preparations for 2013 Japan trip ^_^

Yoshi! Time to get started. I hereby declare 2012 to be another great year! :D
