Current mood: I bet 10 dollars that he’ll tell that story. I bet 10 dollars that kid’s hers. I bet 10 dollars he’s gunna die next episode. I bet infinity dollars I’m going to cry like a baby.

Man, that’s a long ass title aint it? Even with the full kanji title I still dunno what it means. I can read the individual characters but this??? Nope. Like Tsuritama it’s not really popular, but not a dump anime either. It’s the only series I’m watching the same year it’s released (jjba not included). Why did I even watch it, I’m not into historical drama and tbh the first few episodes were boring as hell. Because everyone gifs the bromance (or romance, you never know) of the two mains in the first arc. So close together oh my! I’m dying to know whatever the story is about!

Review: Your Lie in April (anime)

Current mood: Af feels. Shame on you!

《四月は君の嘘》is a sensational piece from 2014 Fall anime, along with Akatsuki no Yona and some others. When I say it’s a sensational piece, I don’t usually watch them *ahemSNKahem* even when the hype is gone. But there’re people out there pestering me to watch it, and it ends with 22 episodes, so I don’t really think it’s a hassle… until when I can’t find time to watch it. When I plan to watch it though, the video format is wrong and keeps crashing my video player (or lag everything ugh) so I had to call my ‘backup’ aka person who pestered me to watch the series for help. And she uploaded the whole 22 episodes for me in a mere hour!

Current mood: WOW. I can’t…

I never thought of watching this until one day I stumbled across its ending song in Youtube. Usually suggestions put me off but there was something about the movie poster that clicks. So I listened. And I got addicted. The song was beautiful. Then I remembered that I have seen the movie poster back when I was still a kid (about the same time I started using the PC, so maybe 7~9 I guess?), and IDK I felt nostalgic maybe? One of the reasons I could still recognize the poster was because of its selection of colors: blue with brief colors of the sunset. And the characters playing the violin with contrasting atmospheres.

Current mood: NO BABY NO IT’S OK YOU CAN MAKE IT! AF FEELS!!!! *SLAMS ON LAPTOP*

5 Centimeters was already pretty famous in Tumblr due to the beautiful scenery and the tear-jerking motif of the film. Mostly all the GIFs I see on Tumblr are scenery porn, so I did not know what the protagonist looks like. I didn’t even know how the story will go, except for the fact that they got train-blocked (lol). The movie has three episodes, each episode describes the ‘distance’ between the central protagonist of the episode.

Current mood: Feels, why you come find me?!

This anime was quite the hit when it came out and tumblr showed me multiple gifs of scenery porn, fingers in armpits, glasses and colorful things ohh wow. I watched the first episode with my dad if I’m not mistaken, but didn’t get drawn in cause, hey I watch last season animes! I don’t indulge anime when it’s still hot! I marathon all 12 episodes till 2 in the morning, forgot to set the alarm, and missed my ride home…

A faint clap of thunder,
Clouded skies,
Perhaps rain will come.
If so, will you stay here with me?

Current mood: WTF man you’re basically ruining my OTP! Btw that protagonist is SO my type!

When it first came out in 2013 Tumblr was BURSTING with GIFs, I’m not even exaggerating here. GIFs with shoes, rain, scenery porn, time lapse and most of all, the couple and their interactions. And frick I know better than to watch that movie cause the feels train is REAL. Then again I got bored in the hostel so I downloaded the movie along with ‘The Girl Who Leapt Through Time’ which I’ve watched and got hit by feels train.
