That Anime That Will Always Have a Special Place in Your Heart

Well, there are a few anime that are special to me. One of them is Death Note. Another one is Vampire Knight. I got into Vampire Knight in 2009, when I was 12 years old. It was also the first manga I bought. I’ve watched the anime and read all of the manga.

I will never watch or read Vampire Knight again. I rarely rewatch anything to begin with (Click here for more context) but I just don’t think I will enjoy rewatching/rereading it. It’s also because I hate Yuki Cross, the female lead.

Even so, this series has a special place for me. Because I didn’t like Yuki, I’ve read a ton of fanfiction where Yuki was a minor character.

I still love the art style of the manga. Toga Yagari and the entire Night class are so attractive, especially Kaname Kuran. The opening and ending songs are still amazing and the soundtrack is really good.

Do You Have a Memento Box?

I was watching episode 18 of Gosick and the characters looked inside the contents of a memento box/keepsake box/memory box. I thought this was interesting because I’ve been collecting things that are precious to me in a box (even though I did not know that memento boxes were an actual thing). I started collecting things from age 13 and upwards.

Obviously the contents are personal so I won’t be taking pictures, but I can share what some of the things are:

  • polaroid picture with a couple of my closest friends
  • movie ticket
  • Purikura pictures
  • concert ticket
  • my draft for a letter
  • broken cat charm
  • ornament
  • wrapping paper
  • a letter to myself
  • birthday cards
  • goodbye letter
  • encouraging words from a friend

Kind of random, right? Now, I’ve been to many movies but I’ve only kept a single movie ticket. I’ve also only kept a select few letters and cards in my box (the rest are in the basement). Why these items in particular, I am not completely sure but it’s important to me that they are in my box. They are items that are unique to my life and I can associate them with good or bittersweet memories.

Do you have a memento box or something similar? Please let me know, I am interested to hear. 🙂

P.S. Merry Christmas!!!
