On the Fourth Day of AniChristmas (Post on Life Lessons Anime Gives)
On the fourth day of AniChristmas, InterestSoap gave to me, a blog post about live lessons that anime give you. Wow, that’s a mouthful. For the earlier days of this season I have been doing mostly factual posts, so this time, it is a post from the heart. (cough cough) This post is going to be about what lessons I have/can learn (t) from watching the various anime I have watched. So, shall we begin?
First, a quick note, some of these points may sound a bit nonsensical as I do not really know how to phrase the words properly, so if you cannot understand what I am saying, feel free to yell at me across the internet. The anime that I have chosen are slightly random so do not be surprised if I hate on some.
1. Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai -Siblings
This show is basically about a brother covering up for his Otaku sister. What amazed me the most was how far he was willing to go to help his sister even though even risking getting into a crap load of shit. Sometimes although they don’t show it, I guess siblings do watch over each other will do a lot for each other. Though I highly doubt anyone with siblings will admit it. (Like me) I guess we will never know until that particular situation presents itself to us.
2. Zero no Tsukaima- Life is freaking unfair
Let me put this honestly, I did not enjoy this anime at all. There is no moral angle for this show at all! (SPOILER) Louise breaks a law, causes problems with another freaking country and what does she get? A freaking reward! How the F^#% is that normal? (this is the part which I said I would be hating) She is not a nice person, but she just complains on the tiny things and does not appreciate the things around her that she has.
3. Angel Beats- 2nd Chances
You all have heard of this one right? The whole afterlife story. I guess one thing that really stuck me about this anime is that you always get a second chance. But even if you do get a second chance, do not waste it away. Afterlife might not always be true, but no matter what you always have a second chance in doing something. I don’t really know about third, but there is always try number two.
4. Usagi Drop- Parents are awesome
This heartwarming story brings you a rather simple message that almost every one can understand. Your parents/guardians love you and even if you do not share the same blood, they have made plenty of sacrifices for you and you should appreciate them. It is kind of sad it took a show to allow me to realize that.
5. Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai- Friends are Important
You should already know what the show is about seeing I did a review about it. Friends are the one that keep you going. Other then for those loner moments you have, you will want to be surrounded by friends. Japanese believe strongly in friends and working as a team, something I definitely admire. They even have a saying, “The nail sticking out gets hammered down.” which means that they do not like show-offs and you work as a team, with your friends and comrades.
6. Ben-To- Journey makes the End better
I just started on this anime a day before this post, but I more or less fell in love with it. It is basically people fighting for food. But one part struck me the most was one of the values the show showed. The harder it is for you to achieve a goal, the greater you feel when you get it. So for that, I am going to work really hard and try to get into the anime industry. *.*
Of course I will end with my favorite anime. This show not only showed me that cuteness can give you diabetes, introduced to me the world of anime and let me realize an important life lesson. No matter what, make sure that you do what you love and not do what other people expect out of you. If you love music, practice it to no end. Even though you hate that subject, treat it as if you loved it and I can assure you your results will improve. It works in the workplace as well for the older readers.
So that safely wraps up day 4 of AniChristmas. Thanks for all the support you all have been giving for clicking. We have more views these few days then we ever had in the history of InterestSoap, so for that I sincerely thank you. If anything you would like to say, comment. And please offer more suggestions. Thanks to CTheHash for giving me an idea on the next post. Until tomorrow, MOE picture time! Day 5
