Mecha anime: Music, ships, and the stupid reasons I watch them

Originally written at 18/8/16

The term Mecha may refer to both scientific ideas and science fiction genres that centers on robots or machines controlled by people. These machines vary great in size and shape, but are distinguished from vehicles by their humanoid or biomorphic appearance.

As the title suggests, in this post it’s all about mecha anime! If you didn’t read my most recent review about Voltron, I am not a mecha anime person. If I continued to watch a mecha series after its first 3 episodes you can bet there’s a stupid reason behind it. Now let us move on to the mecha anime I have seen since childhood! Entry number one:

Current mood: *throws wet tissue on floor* AGAIN!

I have never heard of Voltron. I grew up watching some Power Rangers and lots of Gundam SEED. I don’t even watch mecha all that much. Then tumblr burst with gifs and art of the reboot, Voltron: Legendary Defender. The art is so similar to ATLA I can’t help but wonder if the producers have anything to do with it. Turns out, YES! Imagine my joy when finally, there is something I can watch that is like anime but is not anime and it’s not cartoonish like Steven Universe.

It wasn’t until after I got most of the AC games that I bought ToGf. My shopping list after buying a new console has always been one, Final Fantasy; two, Tales; Three, Kingdom Hearts; and four, Assassin’s Creed. Followed by other JRPGs, then only the various games I’m thirsty about. I’ve been looking into PS3 Tales games, but they’re so scarce and sometimes the shopkeeper doesn’t even know what I want. So I did some research on my own and found a few titles (at least more than PS2). I’m still salty about Tales of Vesperia. Namco Bandai, release a localized PlayStation copy OK!

I bought the game alongside with my PS3 and FF13. Ahh a sequel. I remember when the website updated with recurring characters, and Hope was one of them, and he’s all grown up! I squealed. No kidding, squealed!! Adult Hope is sooo hot!!!! *fangirls*

Current mood: I think my heart forgot to beat and my lungs forgot to breathe.

This was one of the more sensational series in the season, but aint nobody got time for that! Amberly suggested it long before it ended (episode 3 I guess?), and there are some twists and turns in tumblr, so you know the gist. Had to watch it! However my heart is not accustomed to thriller and mystery, so I had a really hard time keeping my cool while watching.

Current mood: MY HANDS!!!!!

When I first bought my PS3, Final Fantasy XIII and its sequel is a must have. So yeah, it’s my first PS3 game. I got up to Gran Pulse and stopped because there were too many side missions and I don’t want to go to Eden yet. But LR happened and I finished it… so maybe it’s time to finish it???

REVIEW: My Sister’s Keeper – Jodi Picoult (Book)

Current mood: I’m mad. Really mad.

My aunt was clearing her old book collection(She lent me To Kill a Mockingbird and The Memory Keeper’s Daughter, both are awesome!) and told me to choose anything I wanted out of the pile before she gave them away. There are multiple thriller and mystery novels, but I didn’t take them because those are bad for my heart. I’ve heard of Jodi Picoult before, and the story seemed ok, so I took it and left it there on my shelf collecting dust. Then one holiday I was cleaning the dust-filled bookshelves and it seemed like a good idea to read it, so I did.
