YAY I'M ALIVE. My last journal was October 25th... >.<;
If you were wondering about my title, I'm literally going shoujo anime crazy. LITERALLY.
I'M WATCHING THE THREE MOST RECENT AND POPULAR SHOUJO ANIMES OF 2012.
AT THE SAME TIME. THE SAME. FRIGGIN. TIME.
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME. WHAT. THE HELL. IS WRONG WITH ME.
In other words, I'm watching Kamisama Hajimemashita, Sukitte Ii Na Yo, and Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun altogether.
If I had to summarize the three in one word, this is what I will say:
Kamisama Hajimemashita - denial
Sukitte Ii Na Yo - angst
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun - learning
And what pisses me off so much is that there are 13 episodes total for each of them. EACH OF THEM. It's like the directors called each other up to go drink sake and then they get drunk so their like " Hey, let's ALL make them 13 episodes total JUST to piss off the fangirls." And thus we have my anger.
My favorite one is definately Sukitte Ii Na Yo. Something about this shoujo is very different from others. I think it's because of the "slice of life" genre which is TOTALLY different from other "slice of lifes." Other shoujo animes are all unicorns and rainbows and basically everything is peachy-keen. Sukitte Ii Na Yo is harsh and brutal in terms of growing up and the essence of love. Enter Tachibana Mei, who has no friends eversince this childhood incident where she has lost her trust in others. Now in high school, all the other girls tease her in saying she has no boyfriend and friends in general. This is where Yamato Kurosawa, the most popular boy in school, comes in. Yamato may be labeled a playboy(in my terms, at least), but he's a total gentlemen. He immediately takes an interest in Mei. Together, they face challenges like never before in finding their path full of mishaps and obstacles which can set them apart, but they will always end up with each other.
Especially Episode 8 titled "New to Love." It REALLY made me sob because I never realized how hard true love is(I've never been in a romatic relationship) and the episode title is so true for Mei and Yamato. Just being in the audience watching their struggles and seeing them so helpless makes my stomach do flip-fops, even if this is fiction. UGH THIS ANIME. MY FEELS SPLATTER ALL OVER THE FLOOR.
So guys, if you're a die-hard shoujo anime fan like me, then you gotta watch the animes listed here. But be warned! Your feels will become a nuclear reactor if you do.
