I think... I'm always standing somewhere convenient. Over there... Or right here...

And so, I stumbled upon this manga by Aogiri Natsu. Flat has 13 chapters so far and I can really say I’ve been absorbed already by the plot of the manga. In any case, I really liked this chapter 9 of Flat. I just can’t help it but think for myself if I ever had a similar feeling towards my friends, whch is alienation. My answer is yes. Definitely, I think almost everyone had at least experienced this kind of feeling, of being disassociated, even if one would prefer to hide or disregard his/her own feelings—and I just like how Aogiri Natsu presented it to the readers. Thanks to this certain statement by Satou which is “Just because you like something, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get your affection reciprocated.” that really lets us know that reality bites. Not just that, but Satou’s thoughts as well regarding his disposition with his relation to his two other friends.

Sometimes, whenever we see our friends, complacency kicks in, as if your ties with each other will never change. One would never imagine the things that might cause him/herself anxiety towards the stability of the relationship with the other person, even if you’ve been together for a long time.

goal I really derive happiness whenever I watch episodes about treasure hunting. Treasure Hunting probably is childish but I’ll admit that I like each and every episode of anime(s) that involves one. Why? Probably because it invokes a blissful feeling.

My heart pounds fast just thinking about it. It’s my desperate wish to experience a real life treasure hunt, something that’s exquisite. I’m not talking about real buried golden treasures, it’s all about the puzzle and solving it such as simple letterboxing[1] events. This is probably the reason why I enjoy Shounen Tantei-dan episodes of Detective Conan, which very few viewers find to be amusing. I do concur that those brats are damn annoying at times but puzzles are just tickling to my senses. Oh no, I’m starting to sound here like an adult deprived of playing games during his childhood. But then again, I would have been more glad if I was able to experience it during my younger days.

It’s not like I am opposing this idea of OEliminators, and I’m not definitely trying to stop them in doing this just because I am involved XD. I just wanted to speak out before they have the freedom to criticize my blog in return.

What just stumbled upon my thoughts during the weekend, which is probably related to what the OEG is doing, is about the DVD Special of Toshokan Sensou.

I’ve always preferred slice of life anime(s) since it somehow reflects what is happening in reality, as well the things we often take for granted, exploited, and even those things that go unnoticed. Still, I’m amazed that there are two anime(s) so far that was able to relate both afterlife and life itself to produce an uncanny yet interesting series about youkais with relation to humans.

The first thing that would enter your mind once you hear it might probably be Dennou Coil — it has some similarities in some way since they are both sci-fi animes but they’re not really that much alike in concept they want to introduce. Cencoroll is somewhat very appetizing during the very first few minutes but rather very upsetting since it somehow looked half-baked during the last few in my perception. You may want to call it open-ended if you want though.
