Sunshine blogger award

Today, I have a special post for you: an award post sent my way by the great guy Matt from the blog Matt-in-the-Hat. Matt is someone I consider not only a good blogging friend but a good person, always sending positive vibes through the various places he frequents online, mainly his blog and twitter. I’ve shared some fond memories with him as we tweeted each other in a back and forth when I was travelling in Japan that made said travels a little quicker and more lively, giving me that much needed boost one needs to stay merry when travelling, something which is important for someone like me who tires out relatively easily. He is generally a very warm person who I’m grateful to have met in my relatively eventless life online. His blog very much worth reading and carries the positivity I have talked about above. It’s creative, fun, entertaining and full of personality.Here are my answers to Matt’s questions.

A Friday art post: a cherry blossom in autumn colours

Yeeee I’m BACK.

I’ve been working on a lot of things recently. There’s more to come on the weekend so watch out for that.

I painted this the other day, and it turned out really nice. I still haven’t worked out whether the files I’m uploading have been exported properly but I’m pretty sure this is accurate. This being mainly an anime blog, I’m sure you aren’t surprised to see cherry blossoms here, but my love for these trees actually didn’t originate from my love of anime. Here in Britain, we have loads of these in springtime and, while probably no comparison to Japan, they are pretty much everywhere. This is a tree that’s beautiful from whichever angle or distance you view it. Whether you look at the individual flowers close up of the entire thing from a distance they never fail to show the world that England isn’t nearly as dull as the humorous stereotypes suggest.

As the season becomes more wintery, I’m hoping to present to you all a nice Christmas or winter-themed illustration soon enough!

Until next time, which should be an anime post, take care.


Feeling happy? Sad? Ecstatic? In love? Listen to some Suneohair.

Suneohair = cool

Hi guys. Today I’m here to preach another favourite japanese musician of mine, Suneohair. As you can see above, he doesn’t try to take himself seriously and often uses his music videos to tell an interesting story.

I wish I had a brother like you… Great older brother characters in anime

When you’re watching anime, do you ever see a character and think to yourself: “Damn! You’re so dependable. I wish I had a best friend or older brother like you.”?

Good older brother types exist all around us, and I have a few myself whom I hold dear to me – my real brother, for instance, among others who aren’t immediate family. They are cool, witty and dependable. Most importantly, perhaps, they care about the welfare of their friends and family and would help them out in times of need. To find a person like this is a true gift. But while they may be hard to come by in real life, they are an archetype that crops up a lot in the anime world, and one that, frankly, is one of my favourites.

Not only are these the characters that you can really root for and invest yourself in (and creates some fantastic drama whenever there’s one on either side!), but I find them to be fantastic role models who can teach an indecisive person like myself a few things about life and morality.

So I decided to create a list of them that you guys may or may not have discovered.

It just meshes well with my soul: Sōtaisei riron

I’m sure most of you love music, and enjoy listening to it. But sometimes we come across an artist which we can listen to practically on repeat for days or more without them becoming boring to us. And holy shit guys: that just happened to me.

Do listen to the included videos for a doubly relaxing, doubly entertaining read~ 😀 . Enjoy!

The Curious Case of Super Saiyan Hair…

A fun fan-theory for the Dragon Ball franchise enthusiast.

Manime Conquest!


Now I wasn’t originally going to post anything until my romance month that’s coming up, but I had the strangest idea that probably has the biggest coincidence of all anime theories that could be speculated that I just had to throw it out there. Basically, in this post I’ll be talking about the Super Saiyan transformations (1,2,3,God, SSG, and even 4,5) and relating them to something that puts a new light on the actual Saiyan evolution.

Goodness gracious! A couple of series I’ll be following this season.

The phrase “goodness gracious” can only mean one of two things. Bear in mind that these aren’t the only series that I’ll be watching this season, and I’m probably going to be giving more impressions as I go along. But I thought that these two were a good starting point because they managed to juxtapose each other so nicely in that they both made me say ‘goodness gracious’, with an entirely different meaning behind them.

The series I’ll be talking about today are both, in all fairness, shows I’m enjoying, but let me be clear when I say that there are certain standards I’m holding for one which I’m… not holding for the other. These shows are ‘Erased’, and ‘Myriad Colours Phantom World’.

EDIT: I promise I meant to finish this one before it went up. And thanks for letting me know lynlyn; I don’t know if that was intentional but still: thank youu T_T.
