Haruhi is back…. but a bit too overhyped… but doesn’t mean it’s not good….
You might be wondering, why are you copying some websites who replaced their whole website with a SOS-dan logo? If I didn’t, Michiru would butt taunt me. Seriously…
Maybe not for that reason, but I wanted to commemorate that Kadokawa didn’t troll us again and the first episode of Haruhi Season 2 have finally aired as promise… Does that mean I will drop all the series I’m currently watching… Absolutely not… but I will be covering Haruhi Season 2, but no long synopsis since other bigger anime blogs are doing that already.. ¶
In Yukito’s search to find the “girl in the sky,” he finds out more mysterious things about the three girls in this town.
Yes, I have put Kannagi on hold because of tremendous amounts of college work, but since I’m free, I decided to watch more.
This is the most debated topic in the Animeblogosphere and Anime forums alike, is Anime really for kids because it’s implied that cartoons are for kids? Not really, but shows like Pokemon, Naruto, Dragonball Z and others make it seems like that. However, most anime are not meant for children, but teenagers or even adults.
The difference between a typical cartoon and Anime is that Anime focuses more on culture, art and often have deeper plots than a typical cartoon. Also, Anime ranges more in genres like action, romance, drama, slice of life, etc than a typical cartoon that usually focuses on comedy. Most cartoons are stereotyped as for children because a great deal are made are for children and most wouldn’t enjoy it because of it (with some exceptions). Although there are some Anime series that are targeted to children, a vast majority isn’t. These are shows that usually have intense violence with murder scenes (for example: Death Note, Higurashi, Elfen Lied, etc), which no parent would show this to a child (unless you have bad parents).
Another problem is that some shows are not understandable by young children. These are usually a drama/romance show that focuses on deeper feelings of people and different situations that a 13 year old or higher will understand more. It’s pretty much like making a 8 year old child watch a drama show like Kanon and expect them to understand it… Most likely the 8 year old would get bored and won’t appreciate it opposed to a 16 year old who watches it and will most likely appreciate it more. The child who won’t appreciate it is because the child haven’t mature enough in life and would likely enjoy something like Naruto…
Depending on the show, most shows are not suitable for children, but does it mean that Anime is not really for children? In some cases, no… as mentioned before, there are Anime that are geared towards children
What is your take on this? Do you really think that Anime is really for children or not? ¶
Well, if moe anime is good, how about putting a bunch of cute catchphrases in it? I don’t watch a certain series because it have tons of moe in it, but what I did noticed when I was watching Kanon is that it’s filled with these catchphrases, the most famous being “Uguu~” which is imitated in one of the Lucky Star episodes.
Not just that, it seems every one of these series made by Kyoto Animation haves them.
Here is a rough list of all these presumed catchphrases for all the anime I have watched so far:
- Uguu~ – Ayu (Kanon)
- Nyuu~ Nayuki (Kanon)
- Fight-o dayo! Nayuki (Kanon)
- Auu~ Makoto (Kanon)
- “Liar” Nayuki (Kanon)
- Ahaha~ Sayuri (Kanon)
- Hae~ Sayuri (Kanon)
- Ehehe~ Various
- “I don’t like people who say such things!” – Shiori (Kanon)
- Gao~ Misuzu (Air)
- nyoro~n Churuya-san
- Anpan~ Nagisa (Clannad)
- “Are you a bully?” Kotomi (Clannad)
- “What the heck.” Kotomi (Clannad)
- Moe Moe Kyun! – K-ON!
So what is your favorite “cute” catchphrases?
Notice that I was bored, so I made this post… ¶
Airheads and Santa Costumes don’t mix… in that case.
It’s finally Christmas Time, the best time of the year…
Yes, I have been tremendously busy so I decided to halt blogging on Haruhi-chan/Churuya-san which means I have alot to catch up… but I have finally heard word that Haruhi-chan and Churuya-san is finally over… Hopefully, my predictions will be right and Kadokawa will release the new episodes… or decide to troll us again.. thats okay…Just hold your breath… Season 2 or the new Haruhi episodes are coming very soon! ¶
If you thought Nagisa from Clannad and Ayu from Kanon is the cutest/most moe… you are sadly mistaken… After seeing Air Episode 1, I have seen the light… Misuzu is probably the most cutest/moe female Key lead I have seen. Some may ask, I thought you don’t care about moe? Well, yes… I don’t… but this is an exception..
Gotta love that expression…
Since Spring Semester is over, I have decided to resume watching of Anime full time…
