Assassination Classroom: Karma Fan Art

I turned my doodle from lecture into a quick coloured digital drawing.

It’s not perfect, but I’m kind of over feeling that my art isn’t good. That kind of thinking can be left behind!

Quitting Twitter has freed up a lot of time (re: my last post in which I talked about my departure from Twitter). It’s because I don’t procrastinate on school assignments and I feel the need to be productive all the time. That’s why this blog exists.

My Top Anime Ending Songs

I posted My Top Anime Openings list, so I had to do an ending songs list! These aren’t in any particular order.

1. Aimer – Dare ka, Umi wo. (Terror in Resonance) 

Aimer is my favourite lady singer. I love her deep voice. The visuals for the song are perfect because I also feel that I am drowning when I listen. I guess I like haunting songs. I recommend listening to the full version.

2. Aimer – Akane Sasu (Natsume Yuujinchou Go)

You should watch Natsume’s Book of Friends!

3. Aimer – Ref:rain (After the Rain)

This song suits After the Rain perfectly.

4. Maximum The Hormone – Zetsubou Billy (Death Note Ending 2) 

I didn’t like this song when I first heard it (I was 11) but I like it now.


Other ending songs:

  • Nightmare – Alumina (Death Note)

My Top Anime Openings [Updated]

I wrote a post called, My Top 10 Anime Openings back in August 2017. My music tastes have changed! I’ve also watched more anime since then. These aren’t in any particular order, except for Unravel at the top of the list.

1. TK from Ling Tosite Sigure – Unravel (Tokyo Ghoul) 

This is not only my favourite anime opening, but it’s also my favourite song of all time. I love everything about Unravel. I love the lyrics, TK’s unique voice, and the instrumental music. I also love the visuals of the Tokyo Ghoul opening.

Who is that inside of me?

Here in this broken-down, broken-down world, 

you laugh, without seeing a thing

I’m just so damaged, I hold my breath and freeze 

… 

In this twisted world, I’m gradually growing transparent and vanishing 

2. Ling Tosite Sigure – Abnormalize (Psychopass) 

I really love TK’s voice.

3. TK from Ling Tosite Sigure – katharsis (Tokyo Ghoul:re Season 2) 

4. MAN WITH A MISSION – My Hero (Inuyashiki)

Inuyashiki is one of my favourite anime.

5. Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas – Let Me Hear (Parasyte) 

Anime openings are shortened versions of songs but the best part of Let Me Hear (1:45) is cut in the anime opening. =_= Here’s the music video.

6. Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas – Chase the Light! (Kaiji Season 2)

If you like this song, you should listen to the full version.

7. BiSH – PAiNT it BLACK (Black Clover Opening 2) 

I didn’t discover the idol group through anime openings. I think they’re really cool. I recommend their song, GiANT KiLLERS.


Other anime openings:

  • Vickeblanka – Black Rover (Black Clover Opening 3)
  • Sumika – Fiction (Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii)
  • Kana-Boom – Silhouette (Naruto Shippuden Opening 16)
  • amazarashi – Sora ni Utaeba (My Hero Academia Season 2 Opening 2)
  • Kenshi Yonezu – Peace Sign (My Hero Academia Opening 2)
  • Dean Fujioka – History Maker (Yuri!!! on Ice)
  • Nightmare – The World (Death Note)

I’ll also be posting My Top Anime Ending Songs list! A lot of people ask me about the music I listen to. I would say that I like songs if the singer has a really nice voice, if there are drums, or if it has a unique sound.

Favourite Anime Quotes

I really love quotes.

Izaya Orihara

In the post, Why I Love Izaya, I talk more about the significance of these quotes and what they mean to me.

Naruto Uzumaki

Believe it!”

“I’m never going to run away, I never go back on my word! That’s my nindō: my ninja way!”

Naruto is a great character. He’s so positive and never gives up. I think he’s a great role model and inspiration.

Parasyte

Shinichi, upon researching the concept of demons, I believe that, among all life, humans are the closest thing to it.” – Migi

I recently started watching Parasyte, and this quote made me think a lot.

One Piece

We_Can!

I want to live!” – Robin Nico

“Stop counting only those things you have lost! What is gone, is gone! So ask yourself this. What is there… that still remains to you?!” – Jinbei

“I don’t wanna conquer anything. It’s just that the person with the most freedom on the sea is the Pirate King!” – Monkey D. Luffy

One Piece has taught so much about friendships and what it means to be alive. Luffy is an excellent captain and I love his views on life (i.e. on freedom).

Kaiji Itou

Things could still be worse! They could! I made it in time! I realized what was going on! This isn’t the worst! This is still better than what could have happened! I realized it…”

“My tenacity! My perseverance!”

“We all mess up time to time!!! No matter how much we try and get away from it, we all make mistakes!! Nobody’s perfect, that’s only natural!”

“When you’re under the most pressure you’ll probably ever be under either totally mediocre mistakes or heartfelt honest mistakes will happen! That much can’t be helped! There are always going to be mistakes! The problem is not the fact that mistakes will be made but when those bad instances do come up, how we decide to deal with them! That’s how we climb over them! How we get over the obstacle of our inevitable mistakes! Getting over the mountain range that stands in our way! If we can do that it will come to us! We will achieve victory!”

Kaiji is so pure.

We’re both negative. If anyone has advice on how to be less negative, please write to me.

3. Mikazuki from My Roommate is a Cat

We both like cats, don’t like going outside, have an appreciation towards books, like to write, and don’t take very good care of ourselves.

Shorter list this time, but that’s all I have for now!

Impressions: My Roommate is a Cat

Japanese: 同居人はひざ、時々、頭のうえ。| Doukyonin wa Hiza, Tokidoki, Atama no Ue.

Episodes released thus far: 7

Genre: Slice of Life

maxresdefault.jpg

My Roommate is a Cat is a currently airing 12-episode anime from this season (Winter 2019).

60% of the episode is told from Mikazuki’s point of view, while the rest of the episode is told from Haru’s point of view. The same events happen – it’s a retelling of the events but from the cat’s perspective.

Synopsis: Subaru Mikazuki is a writer who hates leaving his house and finds it overwhelming to interact with people. He encounters a stray cat and decides to take her home. He names the cat ‘Haru.’ Each episode portrays how Mikazuki’s life is impacted by Haru and his friends, and how Haru’s life is also changed upon meeting Mikazuki.

Thoughts: Two things drew me into this show: 1) the protagonist’s attitudes towards life and 2) the cat! I’ve been wanting to raise a cat for the longest time, but hopefully I will be able to in a few more years.

Mikazuki reminds me of myself in some ways. We both love reading, we don’t like going outside, and we don’t take very good care of ourselves. Some viewers might find Mikazuki to be unlikable because he isn’t interested in social conversations but I really like him. He loves reading books and enjoys being alone.

During the events of the show, Mikazuki is slowly starting to see that having company over isn’t so bad. We’re just a little over halfway through the show, and Mikazuki is already changing in small ways after living with Haru.

Personal story: I used to always say ‘no’ to my classmates when they asked me to study with them. I study best alone, so I thought it would be too much of a hassle to study with others. This year, I studied with a couple of classmates at a café and I was productive. We helped each other study and I found it really helpful.

Bottom line: There’s always room for personal growth. I don’t think that Mikazuki necessarily has to change, but meeting Haru is a really great thing that happened to him. It was also good for Haru as well.

We learn about Haru’s story and what her life was like as a stray. While Mikazuki won’t know her backstory or thoughts, we know Haru on a much more intimate level. She’s a really great character.

My Roommate is a Cat is an adorable, heartwarming story. Even if you don’t like Mikazuki, you’ll like the cat.
