Hi everyone , I am back with OWLs theme of the month Failure. Now for those who dont know OWLs are a group who really mean much to me even though I have become a member this year. Shout out to them !
One of the best ways we can learn is through failure. This month we will be talking about the failures of our favorite characters in pop culture media and what we can learn from them. We will also reflect on our own mistakes and failures and how those experiences have allowed us to grow as human beings.
–November 2019 Blog Tour Prompt
So this time I am talking about Black Clover , a shounen I have really grown to love. It all starts with Asta and Yuno , two boys who live in a poorest part of their kingdom. In world magic is everything and royality has best magic and poorest people least. Asta was born with no magic . Yet he overcomes the barrier and joins Magic Knights. Asta is a true shounen MC .
I too have had a lot of challenges in my life. And being part of this and geek community in general has helped me a lot.
That is all for today and sorry about a short post this time. Check out Dylan post before me and Matt tommorow.
Hi people , how is it going ? Here I am resting at home , a bit sick but more motivated than ever. I am finally figuring out how to organize my posts and Youtube videos and yes I have a youtube chanel XD. To end the intro expect more content from me in the future !
So I figured I want to do this post after my Cinderella anime post. I am kind of sorry it took me this much time.
So how to start… When I was little , before DVDs , I never watched Disney movies or TV shows but Jetlag Productions a lot. So what is Jetlag Productions ?
They were an animation production company back in 1990s. They went bankrupt a while back. But their shows are still some of my fond childhood memories. So I am going to be talking about 3 their shows which had a young female leads.
So first is from fairytales collection . While I watched Cinderella a lot when I was younger , until the tape got broken XD, their Little Red Riding Hood is the one I choose.
I loved the animation for this one. The main character along with her animal friends which she mets on the way to her grandmother help her beat the evil wolf. Its a beautiful story about friendship and kindness . This is a fairytale but I think its important for children , even adults , to have some fairytale learned lessons and keep a part of the childhood.
Next I want to talk about one show from their Legends section. Its Pocahontas ! Now I love stories/events like Pocahontas or Anastasia. They are the first women that fought for themselves in my opinion but I wont get into how is Anastasia story true or not.
Now this story I adore. One little girl torn between her people and her love towards Jon Smith. I watch every version of this I can find. The thing that made this my favorite version is soundtrack in the show. Pocahontas is such a great story !
And the last one is from litreature section : Heidi by Johanna Spyri !
This is such a heartwarming story about an orphan girl who goes to live with her grandfather in mountains. This is my favorite classic ! I adore this version the most. I dont think I need to say much more about this show.
So tell me guys in comments , what is your favorite cartoon or which one of this series you have seen or read ?
That is all for today post , Hikari Otaku Station signing off !
Hi , its Hikari ! Its time of the month for my OWLS post ! To those who dont know OWls is a group of content creators who promote acceptance of all individuals regardless of race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and disability. We emphasize the importance of respect, kindness, and tolerance to every human being. Every month we discuss real-world topics through online tours, sharing personal experiences and analyzing pop culture, literature, and other forms of media.
Lets get in to the theme Lover.
When it comes to romantic relationships, what do we look for in a partner? What core values do we seek when it comes to building a healthy and loving relationship? For this topic, we will be discussing some of our favorite couples in pop culture and what they have taught us about love and relationships, the good and the bad.
My choice is Strobe Edge. Mangaka is Io Sakisaka. She did Ao Haru Ride too.
I already read this series once a long time ago and now I am collecting the volumes in book form now . Now I dont have myny experience love so I am mostly gonna talk about the manga.
Now the story MC is Nino Kinoshita. She is in high school and has never been in love until she meets a popular guy in school Ren . But the truth is Ren is already in relathionship with a girl who is a model and Nino’s friend older sister.
In this manga there are a lot of plots and twists. A 5 star read for me.
I am going to keep it short. I think when chosing your partner ( even though it cant be chosen) I want a partner who would either have similiar interests or view of life as me or respect them. A lot of respect and understanding takes for a healthy relathionship. And Nino in this manga, for me at least was a good MC, she respected Ren and his girlfriend, I know that doesnt really make sense so you are gonna have to read it to find out.
That was me for this tour. Be sure to check out Matt and the next and last for this month Lita!
First of all I would like to apologize it took me so long to write this. A lot of stuff has happened to me ever since I was nominated. But I am here now and I would like to thank Pinkies Pokemon who nominated me. I started my blog just this spring and I am really happy that she nominated me because this is also a chance to get to know other bloggers.
Now I have to answer 11 questions that my nominator Pinkie came up with.
1. Is your blogging personality true to yourself or have you made some changes in the way you present yourself?
It is true , I go in my blog just like in my life. I live day by day and that is how I do with blogging post by post. My personality , I dont want to say I am a good person ( because it would seem like I am overdoing it XD) but I try my best to be in real life and on my blog. For what other people think I am like , well you would have to ask them XD.
2. If you HAD to choose between the following which option would you pick? -Grant everyone in the world one year of perfect happiness. -Grant your best friend in the whole wide world a lifetime full of happiness? Motivate your answer.
I would grant my best friend in the whole wide world a lifetime full of happiness . Because . in my mind, after that one year of perfect happiness people would get used to the fact that nothing can go wrong and would fall into despair. I think its much better to earn happiness by your own hands , slowly , step by step.
3. Do you still have a childhood toy you kept? If not which one do you regret giving up?
I dont have any childhood toys left sadly. I used to have 2 teddybears one male with a blue scarf and the female one with a skirt and flower on her head. They were my favorites.
4.What do you like LEAST about our lovely blogging community?
I like least that I am such a newbie when it comes to blogging XD.
5. You have to swap two main characters from (anime) series around.. for example Naruto and Goku… who would you choose and which of the series would you want to watch more.
I would try Bleach (Ichigo) and HunterXHunter (Gon) ! I would want to watch more Bleach with Gon as MC because just thinking about what kind of series it would be is fun , specially him and Rukia workin together XD.
6. If I gave you 50 dollars , (US) what would you buy from it? You HAVE to spend it.
Right now on manga or a light novel. A girl has many series she wants to own.
7. You have to direct a tv commercial for yourself, how would it go?
I would go like a pokemon evolve. I go inside an egg (not like pokemon but you get what I mean) and egg starts to glow and I come out reborn , saying: “I am a geek and I am damn proud of it ! “
8. You had some time and money to spare to make a commercial for ME, how would that go?
You would be surrounded by pokemon games and they are floating ,saying choose me ! And then you pull out a rope like in cowboy movies and say gotta get you all !
9. Ranger, Bard, Paladin, Fighter, Rogue Wizard, Druid or Cleric! What would be your class, (not your favored D&D class) define yourself as one of these classes.
When it comes to those kind of games , I always played Wizard because he supports other players but now I think I would like to be a Ranger because it looks so cool shooting an arrow.
10. If you are a trading game card, which trading card game would you be in and what would be your effect?.
I am not sure if it can trade but it is a card game, Yugioh Duel Links, and I would be the Fusion card because its so hard for me to have two monsters and that Fusion card when playing Yugioh Duel Links.
11. If you could run any other blog site for a week? Which blog would you choose and why?
I would run Karandi’s 100 Word Anime because I find it amazing she can do episodes rewievs , lots of them , not sure I would be able to XD.
I havent posted anything in a while but I am back with a new section
So I have been thinking, how there are a lot of good series that people dont know of because you “cant catch them all” XD. So I Will be posting some of my favorites in this section.
So now that introduction is over, lets do this! Like I know what most people are thinking, Cinderella isnt an anime ! And that is true but there is an anime adaption of it called
It has 26 episodes and was aired in 1996.
The plot is a bit different :
The Story of Cinderella opens as Cinderella’s life changes for the worse when her widower father leaves on a business trip. No sooner is he out of sight than Cinderella’s stepmother has unceremoniously moved her two own daughters into Cinderella’s room, thrown out her things, handed her a servant’s dress, and put her to brutal harsh menial labor. The series covers Cinderella’s trials and tribulations as she tries to adapt to her new life while suffering the abuse of her stepmother and her two stepsisters. All the while, her fairy godmother, Paulette, subtly watches her and tries to influence events to fix Cinderella’s life without her noticing. One of her first acts in this is to grant several of the animals of the house the power of speech, thus giving Cinderella companions in her dog Patch, a pair of mice named Chuchu and Bingo, and a bird named Pappy. The animals provide her company as well as help with her chores. The biggest twist in the series is that Cinderella meets her Prince Charming early – except here he’s the roguish Prince Charles, who has a habit of sneaking out of the castle and meets Cinderella by accident while disguised as a commoner. The two have a few misunderstandings before becoming friends and start having adventures together. Meanwhile, the villainous Duke Zaral plots against the royal family throughout the story, at times working Cinderella into his plots and machinations. The series eventually culminates in the ball in which the fairy tale ends, but with its own unique twist.
This is copied from Wiki. Just to be sure in anime Cinderella doesnt know that Charles is the prince because he dresses as a normal boy.
I couldnt find this anime in japanese but Mondo adapted it into italian and english. And yes they are on YouTube on TV Mondo channel.
So what do you guys think of my new section? If you dont mind this type of anime, check it out for sure!
