To get it out of the way, I’m not going to lie. I’m only writing this post because I feel terrible that there has been virtually no new content here from me for the past month except for my videos. But, I’m still going to have fun writing it so it kind of cancels each other out in a weird, illogical way. However, I am no quasi-free an able to post again! (Disclaimer: I’m probably still too lazy to post or I don’t have time to post because I’m mugging my arse off for the “O” levels).
Either way, I felt bad for not posting so you readers can look forward to posts by me soon, including this one. I’m trawling through my little notepad of post ideas and I’ve picked the 8 most promising that I’ve wanted to do for a while now. And some of them are reallllllllllllly belated. Like this one for example.
Canaan was an anime that was on my to-watch list for a long time. I added it about 3 months after I got into the whole anime/manga/Japanese thing but I only watched it at the start of this year (That’s about 8 months despite having downloaded it immediately after I chose to watch it). As per usual, I only watched it after a period of extended boredom and realisation that I had such an anime on my MAL.
I marathoned the anime over the course of two days but I was already loving it by episode 3. I thought to myself “This anime! I like it! This appeals to me!” as I ate my lunch. So yes, if you haven’t guessed by now (Firstly, you must be really slow in the head to not have by now), today’s post would be my review of the anime, Canaan.
Welllllll, as most of you would know by now, me and Valence did an epic f**k up and started this 12 days of Anime thingamjig too early. So……well, sorry for being stupid.
Also, sorry for not posting in a long-arse time. I haven’t posted jack-shit in 3 days because I have been AFK these past 3 days. Mostly because I’m at my friend’s houses doing my competition practice. I also haven’ posted in a while because I really have no idea what I could write about. Then a genius idea hit me as I was eating dinner today (contemplation of life while eating fish, why not?)
So, today’s post will be brought to you by that delicious, home-cooked Salmon steak I had.
Well, if you do happen to have accidentally visited my blog by clicking on some link here, you might have seen my Yuri FanFic, Forbidden Lilies. And I finally have part 4 ready. Well, it was ready a month ago but my editor only finished it 2 days ago. Then he took his time to send it to me due to his…computer access issues (he’s not allowed to use it ). So for day 5, It’s going to be Yuri from me, something I’m rather passionate about.
On the persuasion of @fkeroge, I came up with an idea for this post. The whole of last week I could not find any time at all to do any form of blogging, much less anime-watching. Which makes no sense since last week was the final week of school for the whole damn year. Somehow, all of my free time disappeared even without any homework ;A;
Any ways, I also decided I should write a post. This manga was the only thing I could do the whole of last week. Yes, it took 7 days to read 7 chapters. I usually do that in 1 hour but I couldn’t. But reading over an extended period makes savoring it much more satisfying.
If you follow me on Twitter, you might remember a while back i had a really long line of tweets regarding this manga. And the tweets did not consist of very kind words either. I did re-read it though, because I wanted to create a strong standpoint for a review so here are my thoughts, clear of the RME that occurred to me after my first reading of it.
I have said again and again both here and in my other blog that I hold girls’ love, or yuri, in a special place in my heart, and I’m not afraid to let others know. My friends all know it, my roommates at the University Dormitory know it, heck, my parents even have an idea that I love it. As such, I have dedicated this post to the series that started the break-off from the stereotypical themes associated with the intended pure and innocent genre of girls’ love.
Based on the first episodes of these two series, I am now inclined to see how they will go. Nichijou has great art and shows a very chaotic approach to everyday life and Steins;Gate had a more Inception-like approach. Two completely different shows yet both are arguably equally entertaining and appealing (at least to people like me). Continue reading
