Taigagatari

January 19th, 2016

For Shafts 40th anniversary they made a special promotion called Madogatari, where they crossed Madoka and Monogatari. Which spawned some truly amazing art and merch. I wish I was in Japan to experience it, but alas.

However I have found something of equal beauty! A cross between Toradora and Monogatari. My two favorite shows together in one; can you imagine?! And what makes it even better, its Kugimiya Rie (Taiga’s voice actor) singing.

The song is Renai Cerculation, with my Taiga. Prepare for cuteness overload.

Takeo and Yamato

Day 6 – Favorite anime couple

Oh I have a lot of favourites. Such as: Ryuuji and Taiga, Araragi and Senjo, Izaya and Shizuo, Isaac and Miria… etc… But I guess at this point in time I would have to say Takeo and Yamato from Ore Monogatari. Why? Well because their love is genuine and out of pretty much every anime I have seen, this is the only one which focuses about 20 episodes on the relationship after they have become a couple; the hurdles of being in a relationship and the overall satisfaction when overcoming these obstacles. Thats what puts the as my favourite anime couple. Because they are the most realistic one, not over dramatic and crazy, just plain rabu rabu and cute.

Anime Day 3

Aisaka Taiga

Day 3 – Your anime crush

What is love? Baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more.

Disclaimer: I was still a teenager (18) when I watched Toradora, so please understand that me adoring Taiga (who is 17 in the end of the show) is perfectly fine.

But yes Taiga, so small, so cute, so waifu. But to be more serious, the reason why I had a crush on Taiga, was not just because of herself, I was more thanks to Ryuuji, who I admired and wanted to become so that I could support my own Taiga. Basically if I wish I were in Ryuuji’s shoes and have Taiga as my waifu.

Taiga is small and cute, but she is also a Tsundere. While I like tsunderes, sometimes they are a bit too violent, and Taiga is no exception. However the concept of love from hate has always been something that I thought was amazing and to be one of the most strongest forms of love. Also her growth throughout the series is something I would love to see in any girl I am with. Taiga started off in a dirty house by herself, not knowing how to take care of herself or interact with people, but thanks to Ryuuji, she grew into a fine girl with lots of friends and housewife skills that can only match Ryuuji himself. One thing I still can’t forgive her for is leaving him for 1 year, I think there could have been a better compromise, but thats not something I can change.

So thats why Taiga is my first anime crush and my top waifu. If there is a real life version of her, please introduce me to her!

Anime Day 2

Continuing on with the daily my daily anime questions.

Toradora

Day 2 – Favorite anime you’ve watched so far

This is a hard one. Picking a favourite anime out of this list… But if I had to chose one, I’d probably stick with Toradora. It was my very first favourite and I want to keep it as my most favourite because of the plot, characters and general atmosphere of the show. Though I wouldn’t go around and recommending it to every single person I see, and I won’t say that all other anime aside from it is bad, but it will always have a soft spot in my heart.

Aside from Toradora, I’d say my other favourite would be the Monogatari series, as it a beautiful peace of animation,with great character development, engaging dialogue, thought provoking themes, deep plot, intelligent humour, symbolism…. meanwhile at Shaft. I also guess that Taiga and Shinobu are the sole reason why I love tiny girls so much. But thats a discussion for another post.

Essentially anything I give a 10 on my list is a favourite of a genre, or has something unique, that other shows have not been able to show me. And I of course would recommend you take a look at those shows, if not all then at least some.

Stand in ALL the lines, buy ALL the things!

iPhone_GTA

This has been a very expensive week for me, but I can honestly say that it was worth it! GTA V, iPhone 5s and the Bower & Willkins P3 headphones are all mine, and I sure as hell am enjoying all of them. I’ll talk about my purchases in chronological order, so first up I would like to start with one of the best games (and definitely the most anticipated) of the year –

GTA V

The game was set out to come out at exactly 12am on the 17th of September. Naturally I preordered it, but then I also decided to go to the store at like 11:30pm to wait for the midnight release and pick it up straight away to get some gaming time before going to bed. I can say one thing, good thing I came 30 minutes early! I managed to get a spot at the front of the line (8th or 10th) thereby getting the game right away at 12 and heading home. The game cost $89 (which is the normal price for the standard edition of any console game in Australia).
