Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo/The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

Okay, this was so unexpectedly DIFFERENT from what I thought it would be! I knew it was about time travel- I mean, who wouldn’t with that kind of title? Speaking of the title, Makoto figuring how to leap through time is just…

[Spoiler Alert! Not really, but the rest of the post is!]

her legit LEAPING all the time. I’m surprised she didn’t get all those bruises she got when she was trying to save Kousuke and Kaho (?) earlier with all the jumping she did.

(ALSO. They sort of never addressed that head on- how she tripped over some guy’s trainer when she was running down that hill. I mean, it’s obvious to infer that “some guy” is probably Chiaki, buuuuut he said he used up his last time travel charge to save them because a certain someone was crying with guilt. But he made her tumble too..? To save her from sacrificing herself?? Though she WAS way too far to do anything like that…I DON’T GET IT AND IT BUGS ME. It’s legit like the only discrepancy I notice with the time travel so far in this movie…)

I sort of found it annoying at first- how the art doesn’t seem to focus on the main characters. They’re all extraordinarily plain, but the backgrounds and different scenery are amaaaazingly detailed. It was unnerving and a little disliked in the beginning, but I kinda grew to like it. It makes the characters seem easier to understand and simpler, though they aren’t really. A bit more…honest almost.

This scene bugged me! I thought Makoto would time travel back and back and back and maybe eventually realize she liked Chiaki, then time travel back to this scene and just damn SAY YES.

But she doesn’t.

Mayyybe Chiaki being from the future had a little something to do with that. Just maybe.

I originally thought Makoto would learn her lesson with time traveling and use up her last time charge to leap back to the day that was super “unlucky” for her- which she edited to suuuuper lucky once she figured out how to control her leaps. You know, live out her life as she was supposed to that first time. With all the mishaps and disasters. Getting up late, not getting any pudding, cooking like me in her cooking class, but walk home instead of ride her bike. But they didn’t do anything like that, and it was evident after the scene where Makoto waited in the  science lab for whoever it was she saw that day.

Now, I thought the movie would interestingly have Yuri walk in like they did and make it seem that the person that shocked Makoto in the first place into time traveling was her from the future. But instead of having her realize that herself when no one showed up in that room, Yuri mentions once Makoto runs off how she did see someone on her way over to that science lab. Surprise, surprise, it was Chiaki.

And there you have it- it becomes blatantly obvious that Chiaki was- is- I don’t even know anymore- from the future.

(….what a bore.)

But it was kinda alright, sorta really emotional, and prettyyyy infuriating with THIS ENDING. And now I don’t know what to expect.

There was no amazing end credit scene in the future or anything. I reaaaally liked a lot of it. It did catch me off guard, got me to care and to cry, and got my interested. But it did annoy me with some aspects like Chiaki being from the future and actually going back once he had his time charge.

(Also, how did he time leap back so that Makoto and he had one last charge left AFTER they both used them up?? AND his device was broken??? MORE DISCREPANCIES AAAH)

AND THEY NEVER EXPLAINED THE PAINTING D:

So many questions. Such few answers. Absolutely no sequels. (Unless this pulls a pixar- since it very well HAS been ten years since it came out….)

Aight, I’ve procrastinated for a good five hours now. I should actually do my english essay now (ewwww).

Hotarubi no Mori e

So I’ve finally gotten more so into anime movies (like, singular, independent, make sense on their own sort of movies unlike the thousands of pokemon, beyblade, dbz, and many others I’ve seen so far) and this one just kept sort of coming up when I searched for something to watch. That’s why when I realized I had nothing to do for a few hours, I decided to watch it after all.

[Spoiler Alert!]

I reaaaally liked it, but I can’t say I’m too thrilled with the ending even though it was soooo expected. But I wish there had been a cute end credit scene that either made it look like Gin wasn’t *really* gone, or something like that with his presence still watching Hotaru OR if they showed us Hotaru a few years later still remembering Gin ❤

Also, stupid human child sneaking into a spirit festival and tripping all over the place to chase down some chick- like, bacha, it is freaking midnight and you are about nine years old- why aren’t you home?! Why aren’t your parents looking for you? And bloody WHY are you chasing down some girl in the forest?!? This dumb prick is the reason Gin turned to sparkles 😦 Even though it was bound to happen anyways…there’s only so long that guy could go without hugging Hotaru. (At least he kinda kissed her.)

^Possible thoughts going through Gin’s head at this moment:
I Well, crap. I restrained myself for so long only to be touched by a GUY?! Wtf.
II I am so sparkly. Damn.
III I might as well have REALLY kissed Hotaru (five seconds ago).
IV Dang it, Mountain God! Really, I have to die in an explosion of sparkles?! Couldn’t I have just faded away peacefully instead of having my dignity fade away like it is right now??

Or something like that ^_^

But still, this was cute, and now I’m looking for some more to watch. Who would’ve thought I’d watch this and cry just a little? ❤

Just CIE Things- and Distractions.

So.

CIE. A-levels. At university level. Eeps.

To say the least.

But I’m in the middle of my exams, and I’d like to add a few things I am currently obsessed with in different amounts. Varying from using day and night, to just to pass the time. Precious time that should not be wasted at that…

So here we go.

Anime (of course, the largest category);

I Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

  Genre- Magic, Fantasy, Action (and yet uptil now there’s been a SEVERE lack of it on Tatsuya’s part!! =Y ), School Life, Comedy, Romance, futuristic, Sci-Fi, Technology.  Some incest jokes, and implied incest.

II Black Bullet  

 Genre- Action (duh), has a loli (not a genre, but still must be said for some people.), some Comedy, Thriller, Post Apocalypse, End of the World Scenario, Sci-fi, Futuristic.

III Akuma no Riddle

^Whoa, that’s a huge pic =P

Genre- Yuri (lesbian content)(so far, soft, and not anything vulgar. Not even kissing so far, but it’s only been 6 episodes.), Action, Psychological, School Life, Assassins.

IV Yu-Gi-Oh!

Which one?? The FIRST one. And no, this isn’t a nostalgic I’m-gonna-watch-old-childhood-stuff-again at all. I never saw it as a kid. So on the insistence of Zaid, and many many Duel Monsters vs Yu-Gi-Oh! debates, I decided to give it a shot. No picture, because, ew, animation from 2000.

Side note V- HunterxHunter

I am now finally up to date on HxH~! Woot Woot! Only problem is, now I’m dying for the new eps *-*

On to other stuff now…Like,

VI A Korean Drama- The Bride of the Century

And now, the best scene that had me die of laughter-

Peeing Granny

^The scene where Kang Ju’s Granny peed on Doo Rim~! xD

VII Teen Wolf

Sorry, but it’s exams time. And the theme song never fails to make me burst into laughter. I mean, Scott McCaw, the flying werewolf. It’s just too damn swagtastic.

But the stories all about Stiles now <3333 AND they added Japanese stuff to it! Like characters, mythological creatures, and even the Yakuza. I mean, it’s got the Nine Tailed Fox in it. #Naruto #Kitsune

VIII New Girl

Yeaahh…I never liked it, but Exam Hype has crippled my brain and tricked it into finding it amusing currently. Weird.

IX Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23!

Another TV show I started, and it’s funny, despite the  jokes being just a tad too adult for my taste.

And the rest are other anime I may be starting soon, and what not.

Like Durarara!, Dragonar Academy, Letter Bee Academy, and others I’ve forgotten right now. Oi, I’m sleeeepy. Excuse enough.

So that’s my so far distraction list! I may have forgotten a few, but oh wyell. I’ll add more if they arise. I hope note. I need to study all that I can now.

Ciao~

Zero no Tsukaima~

Ze Familiar of Zero!

zeronotsukaima_01

One of my faaavourite anime that I started when I was in eighth grade ^_^

zero-no-tsukaima

[I started watching anime a lot when I was in eighth grade- that’s when I got hooked onto it! And that is also the year in which I saw the most anime I had ever seen =) ]

Okaay, so Zero no Tsukaima is a wonderous fantasy anime with just the right amount of comedic romance to easily fall into my ‘Must watch’ anime lists =3

Zero_no_Tsukaima_3

 

^See what I mean by comedy? Well, I didn’t know these terms before when I watched it the first time, but Louise (ze young tiny pink haired lass) is a tsundere (did I spell is right?? I think so..) which would be Japenese/Otaku talk? for a character that rarely expresses their love or like for anything, always get embarrassed when it’s brought up, and contradict themselves about it- that is, deny they like/love that thing/person. So if Louise is a tsundere, and falls for Saito (cuute coolio Japenese guy in a blue hoodie), then she’s going to blush furiously all the time, stutter, get embarrassed, and deny everrr liking him, and say she hates him. But she doesn’t =)

I mean, lookie, isn’t Hiraga

 

 

Saito cuute?! He is one of my favourite characters, so bear with all these pictures of him now ^_^

Hiraga_Saito_School_by_fedyfausto

 

^This last one’s a deviant art picture, fan art, by a fedyfaust, I think. Cheers to him/her for making it! =)

Louise also has one of the damn coolest names possible. She easily wins Ze Coolest Full Name fictional Character Award from me, at least. Her full name is- wait for it while I google it, yes it IS in fact that long- Louise Françoise de la Baume le Blanc de la Vallière~! Mhmm, best name ever, am I right? xD

Ok, now this anime is the story of how Louise, bullied and cruelly nicknamed ‘Zero Louise’ by her classmates since her success rate with all spells and anything associated with magic has been, well, zero, gets fed up with all the teasing and decided that for her Second Year at school for mages exam, is going to summon the most beautiful, most graceful, and strongest familiar ever. And that’s where the name comes in, cuz she summons- The Familliar of Zero!

Now, utterly and completely humiliated since she summoned a mere human instead of something spectacular like a dragon, or a griffin, or a Charmeleon on Steroids (I kid you not, there is in fact one.) she summons something with even less magical potential than hers- a human, which has none!

kkkkk

 

^Man, Kirche should’ve hit the B button while she still could…wait, I’m actually veryyyy glad she didn’t. I mean, how many of use really want to see a Charmander on steroids? O.o

But Louise still completes the ceremony to make a binding contract with her new familiar. Here’s  a snapshot of that. Cuz if it’s any sort of magical ceremony- there’s GOTTA be a kiss involved. It’s only expected of a Japanese anime. But come on, what about the girl who had the Charmeleon on Steroids?! Did she kiss that fat lizard??! Ewwww!

At this point in the story, I should explain what happened. Louise summoned Saito from Japan, Earth and he got transported to this new world- Helgia or something of the sort- and this country, with it’s fabulous two moons eternally apart of the skyline (one huge blue, a smaller cute pink. Subtle message?). Now Saito, Japanese teenager, only knows Japanese. These people are speaking something else. And Louise, when having to deal with him flipping out- seeing that Charmeleon on Steroids going to freak the best of us, right? And two moons in the sky when there’s supposed to be one sun? Although that’s a minor detail to the damn lizard on fire.- and screaming, Louise expertly and maturely decides that this is the perfect time to test a silence spell, and keeping her zero percent success rate intact, she somehow manages to have him speak and understand their language (which, because it’s an anime, shall obviously be Japanese, despite where in space they are. I mean, even the Namakians knew Japanese…They should’ve at least explained it, like in Doctor Who..).

BUT- plot twist/Some Spoilers- Louise doesn’t suck at magic! Whaaat? And Saito IS one legendary familiar- Gandalfr (yep, he’s a Gandalf with an R =/ ) but I won’t explain. That you’ll have to understand by watching the anime =D It’s really amazing, and totally must be tried out if you like fantasy, magic, romance, comedy, feels, war, and sooome ecchi =S (I hate ecchi, but it’s there…here, at least as far as I’ve seen so far, they just show loads of cleavage…so ecchi related to boobs, nothing else, thank god. So far >.> )

I still haven’t finished it? What-whyyy? Because, it’s got four seasons (the author died after that so it ended sooner than it otherwise would have.), and I watched up til somewhere in the middle or beginning of the third, then dropped it, for whatever reasons back then. Now, I watched from season 1 and 2, all in a looong go, (a few days, please. Not a marathon.) and now I’ve stopped cuz I got sick and did something stupid, anime related stupid, before I started off with season 3.

Here’s some cute fan art again >w<

^(Kirche should be properly dark skinned >.> What’s with changing her complexion?!)

Although this was probably a bit more than a week ago, I never got round to posting all this on Zero no Tsukaima…I was reaaaaally hooked on watching my anime rather than write about it… oopsies =P (then I also started a new anime, not a rewatch like this one- Hunter x Hunter, the 2011 remake, and I wanted to write an initial take on that first…so I did, but then I couldn’t post any of the pictures, for some reason they weren’t uploading, and that infuriated me to no end. Which put me in a foul mood to actually get round to posting this =P)

And here would be a few more pics cuz I did download and save them, so hence I must post them =3

images (7)^Hahahahahahahaha xD See, Louise refers to Saito as a dog and initially treats him as a pet since he’s her familiar- which is usually a magical animal- and this is from one of the endings, where Saito the dog reaches a paw out to his lovely and dazzling little master =3

^I ship Saito and Louise, they’ve had my support from the beginning =) Saito x Louise ❤

saito

 

^This is actually a super important scene in the anime. It’s in a boat. And it’s-spoiler- where Saito confesses! ❤

Ok, that’s all mah pics, and now I gotta update a bit more on what I’ve been doing with anime ^_^ Since these winter holidays I’ve been doing nothing but watch anime =P

And there’s still that thing I did when I was sick yesterday…

Should explain that now. But Fiiiiirst, finish that Hunter x Hunter post! Since all these pictures were uploaded with no problems, those should too now ^_^ Wish me luuuck =3

Buh-byyye~!

ps.
if you thought that was a lot, wait til you see how much I’ve got to type for HxH…I mean, it was supposed to be a first reaction kinda thing, but now I’ve seen the first 80 episodes, I’ve got a looot more to write about =)
