The End is A New Start

My roller-coaster ride of emotions started that November day when I first listened to my friend about Fairy Tail, and how I became a fan of it.

By watching that one anime, I shed tears, I laughed out loud, my brain thought broader, my mind was more open. My vocabulary grew bigger, my grammer became better, my attention span is now greater. All because of that single anine, that opened me to many more.

But it’s sad, that the final chapter of the manga just got published recently. I’m happy I knew the end, but I’m sad that it finally ended.

I’m happy my ship sailed,

these balls of fluff got reincarnated,

and that the adventure will go on behind the scenes.

It’s hard to say goodbye. But they say, “An ending leads to a new beginning.

So, as we say goodbye to the manga and wait for the final season to get these pages animated, let’s open our hearts to new anime and manga, keeping Fairy Tail close to our hearts. We have yet to watch all anime there is. We may find something as good, or better than this one, but we can never forget what happened when this was still our number one.

This is my best hello, and hardest goodbye.

Assassination Classroom (Ansatsu Kyoushitsu 暗殺教室)

“This is your new teacher. Please kill him.”

Isn’t this the weirdest line a student will hear? Well, of course it is! Same goes for Kunugigaoka Junior High’s Class 3-E.

Earth is threatened by an enormously powerful monster who destroyed 70% of the Moon with its power, permanently rending it into the shape of a crescent. The monster claims that within a year, Earth will also be destroyed by him, but he offers mankind a chance to avert this fate. In class 3-E at Kunugigaoka Junior High School, he starts working as a homeroom teacher where he teaches his students not only regular subjects, but the ways of assassination. The Japanese government promises a reward of ¥10 billion (i.e. 100 million USD) to whoever among the students succeeds in killing the monster, whom they have named “Koro-sensei” (殺せんせー Korosensē?, a pun on korosenai (殺せない, unkillable) and sensei (先生, teacher)). However, this has proven to be an almost impossible task, as not only does he have several superpowers at his disposal, including the capacity of moving at Mach 20, but he is also the best teacher they’ve ever had, helping them not only to improve their grades, but also their individual skills and perspectives for the future.

As the series goes on, the entire situation gets even more complicated as other assassins come after Koro-sensei’s life, some coveting the reward, others for personal reasons, and the students eventually learn the secrets involving him, the Moon’s destruction and his ties with their previous homeroom teacher, including the true reason why he must be killed before the end of the year term.

Assassination Classroom, for me at least, is the best school anime/manga ever! It’s applicable for all ages, all gender and all species. It teaches the viewers different things about school and life.

It has two seasons, wherein season one had 22 episodes and season 2 had 25. Belive me when I tell you, that it is a must watch anime, from the beginning to the end.

This anime was introduced to me by a friend, because he told me that there was a red head hottie. 

And of course! Since I’m a fangirl who has a red hair fetish, I had to watch it.

But as I kept on watching, it wasn’t just tvis red head kept me in, but the story. It naturally clings on to you, until it’s too late to realize that you’re already trapped in the AC fandom.

I guess that’s that. 

I’m sorry I haven’t been active lately. I’ll be most likelt posting about a voice actor next, so stay tuned!

Zankyou no Terror

What are the similarities of Nine and Twelve? Both are multiples of three? Both are numbers? That may be so, but there’s another similarity!

Both of them survived from a burnt-down mental facility.

In an alernate iteration of the present, Tokyo has been hit by a terrorist attack that devastated thecity. The only evidence of the culprits is a cryptic video uploaded to the internet, which sparks the paranoia across Japan. Unbeknownst to the authorities is that the terrorisy masterminds–who call themselves “Sphinx”(スピンクス Supinkusu)– are two teenaged boys who go by the names Nine and Twelve. Though they apparently should not exist, they have nonetheless decided to “wake up the world” with their heinous plans of destruction, with their fingers on the trigger.

Watching the first episode, it intrigued me. It made me think that, “Ah! This is another thriller-type story!” But it wasn’t just any thriller-type story. At least for me it isn’t. 

I watched this anime, like, 4 months ago. But I can’t stop fangirling whenever I think about it.

“Revenge is never the answer.” or so they say. But if your freedom was just taken away from you by force, when you could’ve had fun for the first 8 years of your life, of course, you would want to get revenge!

 It wasn’t just Nine and Twelve. All the other characters made a great impact as well. Mishima Lisa, Shibazaki and Five. They carried out their wishes until their death, ao they can die in satisfaction.

I also love how they make the tiniest details to make up for their riddles. Even the clues they left are a big part of the answer! Even their movements make a great part! 

Tiny spoiler ahead❕‼

In the end, Mishima Lisa revealed to Shibazaki that Nine always listened to music from a cold country–Iceland. And in Icelandic language, Von means hope.

That’s it! If you have watched this, you can comment it down, or commenr down your reactions after watching it! You can also PM me on my social media accounts, which are mostly in the username JhaePanda.

Haikyuu! ハイキユー

Volleyball–a game in which two teams of players hit a large ball back and forth over a high net.

Many people make up the volleyball world. The players, coaches, trainors, referees, audiences and fans. Its form come in many form. Live streaming, replaying, broadcasting, story and even an anime and a manga! And thanks to Furudate Haruichi, the anime and volleyball fans’dream came true as he made the manga series Haikyuu! happen.

FLY!

Hinata Shouyou, upon seeing a volleyball match, aimed to become “The Small Giant”, and joins his middle school volleyball club. After finding new members, they set out to the middle school tournamenr, where they’ve crossed paths with a formidable school, with the “King of the Upper Court”, Kageyama Tobio. Although they lost, Shouyou is still determined to aim for the top and exact revenge on Kageyama. Upon entering high school, he received the biggest surprise–he and Kageyama are on the same school and club!

And so, Shouyou’s adventure started.

I can’t find a proper introduction for this topic, because I haven’t even watched the episodes 1-6 of the first season. But, from where I started, I immediately knew something. This anime is gonna give me anotger different perspective in life.

And it did.

Everyone, not just from Karasuno but the whole anime, showed me their deepest tenacity. Everyone had their own idea of teamwork and style.

I am a little bit behind the anime (because currently, I only watched until season 2) but I still love it overall! 

I’m a sloth, and this is one of the few animes that made me feel more motivated about doing something. Such as this, volleyball. After watching season 1, I planned on starting a volleyball club in my school, but since we don’t have a coach and an adviser, my suggestion failed.

I don’t really know how to end this, but I would recommend it to anime fans! Especially sports fans! Its animation is lit, its voice actors did a great job, and its strategic tactics is really realistic.

If you do watch it, PM me in any of my social media accounts, or comment down below, so we can fangirl/fanboy together!

My Fairy Tail

One November Day, as my 11-year-old self write my English notes, my best friend tugged me by my shoulders. I tried to pry her off, but it didn’t work. This girl is so persuasively clingy, I thought to myself as I finally gave her my attention.

She was just talking, and just like I always do, I pretend to listen, until she showed me a picture. 

“That’s Erza, Lucy, Natsu and Gray from left to right respectively,” she told me with her wide grin. “And that little flying kitty is Happy,” she added.

“That’s a cat?!”

And that’s where it all started.

I found Gray Fullbuster attractive, and claimed him as mine. But that was before I watched the series. I just kept on seeing pictures from my best friend. But that was before I saw a pirated CD at the market. I saw a whole Season 1-3 so I bought the three of them immediately.

“Aren’t you getting tired of that?” my mother asked me as my eyes never left the TV screen, displaying my beloved Gray fight Lyon, his long-lost friend.

“Sorry, Mom. I can’t focus on your question,” I answered her as I kept watching.

“Who’s the black-haired dude?” my 8-years-old sister asked me.

“He’s Gray, and he’s mine!”

I continued watching, and continued possessing Gray until I came upon a new arc, where it showed Gray’s supposed-to-be “partner”, Juvia  Lockser. The moment I saw their fight, I immediately shipped them, and moved on.

Whenever I would watch it at home, my family, or my cousins, aunt and uncles would always ask me with the same questions, “Do you understand that?” and I would always answer with the, “There are subtitles!” and that’s where I learned a few Japanese words.
After many seasons, I finally finished what I watched, until the next year, the early months of 2014, I finished its season 4, the Grand Magic Games Arc. 

After finishing that season, and while watching the other seasons as well, I watched a bunch of anime too. Such as Kaichou wa Maid-sama, Special A, Uta no Prince-sama Maji Love 1000%, Kuroko’s Basketball  and many more.

After being informed of the new season of the anime, I immediately went to the anime site I always watch at, and watched the first episode. My eyes were sparkling in amazement as I see new adventures and new powers of my favorite characters. I watched them all, until they stopped airing, and I stopped watching.

Although the anime is finished, I continued to read the manga. Some chapters made me ecstatic, while some others made my tear fell. I never experienced so much roller coaster ride with my feelings as passenger.

Up until now, waiting week by week for a new chapter, my love for the anime never disappeared. And because of that love, I shared the same adoration to other series. And that’s where it started. The ending is still far, but for now, this is  My Fairy Tail.
