Yuri on Ice

Yuri on Ice

I can’t think of any other anime that has moved me as much as Yuri on Ice. There is one song that makes me teary eyed every time I listen to it.

This track has inspired me so much that I have start to practice playing the piano. I’ve realized that I am terrible but I hope to be able to play this song in the years to come.

This song takes me on a journey:

  1. Working towards your goals
  2. Reaching your goal and realizing you’re not complete
  3. Working towards your goals with others
  4. Reaching your goal and realizing it’s about the journey

I can’t say that any other part of the anime spoke to me other than the relationship between Victor Yuri. I’m kind of amazed how far Yaoi (BL)  Genre has come. Usually the BL relationship is between sub characters and not the main ones.

Here are some additional videos:

Anime Hair

Hair!

I love anime hair styles. I wanted to share a few styles that added depth to the characters.

Ragyo Kiryuin – Stoic and colourful. I was in awe when I first saw how colourful her hair was.

Elma – Elma’s hair wouldn’t normally stand out to me but add in a few highlights matched with her suit attire and bam! Success.

Hifumi Takimoto – Holy Moe! The more I thought about this style, I wondered why I’ve never seen it before in real life. *googles* here we go:

Still looks good. Anyway, Moe hair for Moe character.

Satou Sakie – I was wondering why I liked Satou’s hair so much and realized that with her hair off to one side it highlights more of her face and glasses~

Atsuko Kagari – It’s pretty hard to capture her hair in a picture due to how animated she and her hair are. Similarly to Satou Sakie’s hair, having Atsuko’s hair parted to one side it opens up her right eye brow allowing more facial expressions which there are plenty.

Kagari AngryKagari Fail

Chitose Karasuma – Chitose’s hair reminds me of the traditional anime hair style with a little more polish for the Moe factor. Not really obtainable in real life but always pleasing to look at.

Love Live!

Love Live! School Idol Project

I thought I’d give Love Live! a shot because it was recommended to me by a few people and it was short, 13 episodes. Although, the story was predictable, I found the episodes easy and relaxing to watch; I fit in one or two episodes before bed.

There were only two memorable scenes for me in the first season. In the first scene, the hype train of their idol group µ’s hits a small speed bump before continuing on to the road of happiness and sunshine – which also describes the series in a nut shell.

The second scene packs in a few things: an awesome club room filled with lots of merchandise referencing a troubling trend of materialism and that idols are characters, explained but Nico’s cringe worthy “Nico Nico Nii”.

Although, nothing out of the norm happens I will probably continue the series once I finish up on a few others. Also, one of the positives of this series is that there is so much extra content for it.

New Year, Old Me

Without MMOs occupying 90% of my time, I’ve decided to hit up one of my hobbies that I’ve been neglecting for nearly a decade: anime. While catching up on all the hits and misses of the past decade I wanted to share moments that move me. So here’s to yet another rebirth of my website.

Although, I didn’t really enjoy the series as a whole, this scene really captures the essence of despair triumph; Saber to the rescue!

The first time I saw Saber’s new weapon I was in pure awe of the weapon design.
