LIFESTYLE : Favourite Anime(s)
Good afternoon everybody,
I hope that you are all ok.
I thought that I would take the opportunity to expand on a Tumblr mini post that I wrote yesterday.
Basically, I have gotten majorly back into one of my childhood obsessions.... Anime.
When I was little, all I would watch, would be my animated friends.
I was in love with the world of Sailor moon....
Serena / Usagi is my spirit animal
I wanted a Pokemon and a Digimon and I wanted to be a Card Captor like Sakura.
I, then moved on to Yu-gi-oh and Dragonball , Z, the movies and sadly GT .
In fact these two shows are something that Luke and I bonded over from the start.
We always have planned to watch most of the above from the first episodes
However, as I got older, I began to think that I should move on from these as I always thought that Anime was for kids.
However, Luke showed me a video of some of the mature and slightly more graphic offerings that are out there and I was hooked again.
I love the way that the characters are drawn, the colours and how deep the story telling can be. Also the authors seem to know when a story should come to an end and its not dragged out for eight seasons......
So we are currently watching two different stories , firstly....
One Punch Man
I am really enjoying this as I love the dark humour in it and just the simple fact that he can kill anyone with just the one punch.
One Punch man is bored with life and sometimes I can relate to this on a spiritual level.
I am interested to see where his story goes as I know they are still making them.
I really want a one punch man phone case for some reason.
The Second anime is
I wasn't sure, that I was gonna like this show. But Luke really wanted to watch it and had been asking me for ages. So I gave it go... and I am so glad I did.
The idea is that a Shinigami called Ryuk has dropped a notebook to Earth, because he is bored.
He is a god of death and anyone that writes a name in the book, kills them.
They can pick a method of death, a time and make details very specific.
The main Character is called Light (Guy on the left with red hair) and honestly, I hate him.
I am a third of the way through as there are only 37 episodes and at the moment I would quite happily see him get flattened by a bus.
He uses the book to almost become a kind of a god himself, he choses who lives and who dies.
Later on as people catch on to the fact that he is a killer (or Kira), he kills them too.
My favourite Character is L (he is the guy on the right of the picture with dark circles under the eyes).
I want him to get to the bottom of the case... he is quite sherlock like.
A smart, antisocial, tortured detective.... who has some really odd mannerisms... I don't think that he will survive to the end, but I feel as though he should be protected at all costs.
All I do know is that, I am trying to keep myself awake each night so I can watch the next bit. I haven't felt that way about a show in the longest time. It's really nice.
So I thought I would write the above as I have been tweeting alot about Deathnote ( please no spoilers ) and its nice to get back into something that I have always loved.
Let me know if you love any of the above, or if you have any suggestions of ones we should watch/ read.
Thanks for reading
