Yes, after causing you to suffer by reading that cheesy title, I’m assuming that you already have a good idea what this post might be on. If you don’t, then read on I suppose.
I will be speaking of the wonders of fiction in this post. No doubt you might have read such a post before or worse, had your English teacher preach this to you when you were young but either way, this is something I really wanted to post on.
Fiction. A word meaning anything that is thought up, with some or no actual basis in reality. One of humanity’s greatest use of our imaginative powers in my opinion. Also, Media. A method to broadcast any form of information to the masses through various technological means or word of mouth. Together, they form one of the greatest forces to reckon with on Earth.
Why am I writing about this you might ask? Well, it’s simple really. I adore fiction. Ever since a tender young age, I’ve been obsessed with reading, particularly books or novels. Not to brag but at age 8, I was reading books that even 12 year olds might have troubles comprehending. Maybe it was because of my circumstances growing up, but I was really introverted when I was much younger and spent my days with piles of books to comfort me. That paints a rather sad image eh but to me, it was the time of my life. Everyday was an adventure with new worlds opening before my eyes with every turn of a page
Watch out, this show is on super high hnnnnnnnnnngggghhh alert.
Probably one of my most anticipated shows of the previous anime seasons (then again, I was looking forward to a lot of shows. Fate Zero and Last Exile Fam of Silver Wing to name a few), Tamayura Hitotose encompasses the story of Fu Sawatari as she moves back to her home town the unfortunate passing of her father. There, she meets with her old childhood friends and slowly comes back to terms with herself and her love for photography which she got from her father.
To summarize it, it’s a touching story of friendship, overcoming odds and grievances as well as enjoying life to the fullest. In other words, the perfect cure to a depressing day. I could never remain depressed after an episode. Personally, I think it’s humanely impossible to still be pissed after an ep. Unless of course, you weren’t paying attention to it.
So the year ends today In about 9 hours, 2012 will dawn upon us and bring another year of great stuff and sad bits. Just like any year eh? Next year, all 3 of us here turn 16 and are forced to take the dreaded “O” level paper that unfairly judges the path of our life forever.
So this post is to pretty much sum up the year till now. It’s been a great year for me. I went from spiraling depression to finding many things that bring me joy. From Metal to Anime and Warhammer 40k figurines. I changed quite a bit over the course of the year. I highlighted this stuff in another post.
On the final day of AniChristmas, InterestSoap gave to me, a post about what makes anime feel that an anime is awesome. At last, we are at the end of our 12 days of AniChristmas. It was really fun thinking of new ideas and responding to your comments. (Something I have never done before)
Well, its not all that long till the end of the year. The Fall season was the first one where I’ve ever watched so many shows. So I’m going to do a impressions post of the shows so far just before their finals episodes come out (well, those that end this season of course) and speculate on the next few eps
PLENTY OF SPOILERS. ALSO, ITS RATHER NONSENSICAL AT TIMES
The Fall anime season has started (This statement was proudly sponsored by Captain Obvious incorporated) and initially, I had been a tad bit disappointed in it. Because the first instinctual reaction I had when I went over the list of new animes was “Where the hell is my Yur???” (Sad, right?). Then I looked over the list again and decided: “heh, heh, some of these look cool”. And hence began the cycle of googling the anime and viewing the first episodes. So this is my first impressions of some of the new animes of Fall 2011 that I’ve watched
