ltdoujo by いしだんごむし I’ve just finished watching it and I think this anime is rather amusing since no one could really tell where would our socio-cultural evolution would lead us to. This is why I don’t think these ideas are preposterous. Who knows, after few decades? After all, wild ideas these days may not be so wild for the forthcoming years.

Even so, even if that time is yet to come, I think it is already applicable to our present situation, although it is not that extreme compared to the censorship the anime is showing.

Disclaimer: The subsequent information I’ll be writing doesn’t have a solid proof so please don’t hold back on correcting me if it is wrong in any case. It’s just what I’ve heard and my opinion regarding on it.

I’m still a college student, and I just remembered this lecture from my Asian History professor. But, before that, I think everyone is aware of what role Japan played during the WWII — and I don’t intend to focus on that. My country,(which is Philippines) is one of the countries which was ravaged during the war, which is why many issues and conspiracies stirred up from the said matter. It involves having the Japan being forced to proclaim a public apology to Philippines regarding that matter.(Well, if you’d like to really know the reason, then I must tell you that, Japanese men, during the WWII desecrated many Filipina women, if you know what I mean, and of course, not just women, but everyone because of the massacres and all those unwanted events during the war.)

spicywolf Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action. – Benjamin Disraeli.

It doesn’t really matter how many Thoreni, Lumione or whatever coins you possess. Everyone has their set of choices to choose from whether to succumb to what they feel right or wrong, whichever might be the source of their happiness or joy, even if it’s also just momentarily.

I chuckled a bit and partly agreed to what Harold-san(the innkeeper) mentioned with regards to wealth and merchants. Indeed, merchants keep on thinking how to earn and gain large sum of profits and yet, would they be able to keep it when that day comes? Of course not, and yet they are putting all the effort just to obtain those high-quality materials and such. Certainly, why exert that much effort in obtaining something you’ll eventually throw away? I guess this rather falls in the category of that dispensable part of happiness.

We all have different kinds of perspective on how we choose to be happy with our lives, even if we’re just pretending to have the role of a fairy tale’s protagonist. Happiness is a scary thing. Perhaps that’s right but, probably not as well. Well, since it’s how Horo perceives it, let’s not argue with that.

yuukiIt’s been a while since I’ve shed buckets of tears because of an anime… I’d say the ending of the anime left me awe-stricken. I didn’t knew where to place myself if such thing would happen as well to myself.

Hardships and obstacles are common place in life and these would test our mettle and on how we view life itself. Death of a loved one is one of these setbacks that might hinder us from progressing forward, but then again it might be an event as well that would help us go forward. It is just a matter of our choices, and as for Mirai, I’m glad she was able to overcome that reproachful feeling that she herself might have caused Yuuki’s death.

Sometimes, there are moments when what matters most is always the present, whatever might have happened during the past. Just like how Mirai’s parents took into consideration the fact that she made it alive is already noteworthy. This perspective doesn’t necessarily tells us to abandon and forget what happened on us during the past because all those things we picked up along the path have their own purpose, which is why we got from where we are now. Same as why Yuuki stayed along Mirai’s side up until she got home and met their parents, maybe it was an allusion to Mirai’s feelings of how she treasures and cherishes all those experience and emotions she felt and learned during that short journey the three of them, Mari-san, Yuuki, and she, had went all through, all together.

The importance to us of "music" as it fade.

First, I’d like to say that the scope of the entry doesn’t necessarily describe the general setting because it may vary for every country, depending on how they value their music, culture, and most significantly, their musicians.

I actually watched this show because there is a season 2 for summer. This is not a review by the way.

The setting of the show is medieval age where the economic system is mercantilism so trading goods as well as gaining a lot of profit is really the most important for the nobles and even for the church so as to gain the power over a certain city or town.
