if it's not too much to ask, can you maybe do an anime rec list? <3
i can! but just an fyi, i don’t actually watch that much anime, and i haven’t watched most of the classics! so these are just like, my personal favorites ^.^ (in no particular order)
(also i split it into anime shows and anime movies, so it’ll be easier ^.^)
ok, i said in no particular order, but this is definitely one of my all time favorites. the beginning is really slow, i’ll admit, but it’s absolutely lovely and touching and complicated (especially in the second season) and i can’t recommend this enough! it focuses a lot on family and i LOVE the main characters and it’s just so so so beautiful! (warning: i’ve never in my life cried as much as i did while watching this anime, so be prepared)
really good! very mature and complicated and the art is really cool. again, it made me cry quite a lot but i’m a crier haha so it might not say much :’) either way it’s a really unique anime and i really recommend it!
wotakoi: love is hard for an otaku
okay this one is super silly and fun! and the best part about it is that it’s super self aware! i was laughing and smiling a lot while watching this, so if you’re looking for a feel good anime, this one is a good choice :)
another feel good anime! just… watch it. it’s so cute. you’ll die. on the spot. just like that. (i still managed to cry a few times though haha)
yuri on ice
i mean… do i really need to say anything?is there anyone on this planet who hasn’t seen it yet? gosh i just love it so much, this anime was such a big blessing and i hope it’ll open the door to more respectful, well thought out queer stories in anime :’)
your lie in april
do you love gorgeous animation? do you love beautiful, touching music? do you love crying your eyes out? if so, this anime might be the right one for you! i’ll be honest, i personally liked the best friend character more than the main girl, and the story had a tendency for melodrama, but it was still really beautiful and touching and made me sob for a week straight :”)
okay i’ve heard mixed reviews about this one, but i personally really liked it! the characters and the setting were interesting and the relationship between the two mains was touching and sweet and caring and i really enjoyed it :)
this one is a bit weird, but i really liked it! the concept is really cool and original (in my opinion) and the characters are interesting :)
ao haru ride
this is a very typical high school romance story, ngl, but it’s one of the first ones i’ve seen so it has a special place in my heart :”) it’s sweet and the animation is beautiful and the characters are likable. i also like that it talks a lot about friendship, maybe even more than romantic love, which is usually something i really appreciate in a story :”) so i won’t say it’s the best thing in the world- but it’s definitely fun to watch if you’re in a romantic mood!
okay. i know. shut up. this is MY list and i’m ALLOWED to like things hvgergetgtrer. it’s all dan and phil’s fault anyways!! but honestly this anime is so addicting, run, run while you can
kids on the slope
perfect perfect perfect. just… perfect. 11/10 might be the best thing i’ve ever watched. everything about this was amazing- the characters, the story, the animation, the music. everything! like i said before, i love stories that focus around deep friendships and relationships, and this was exactly that! the friendship between the two mains was so touching and sweet and loving and they cared so deeply for each other, they helped each other develop and they were always there for each other and just… ugh, so beautiful. i have no idea why this is not more popular but honestly people are missing out
okay i’m putting this one down as a guilty pleasure lol. i will be lying if i’ll say it’s the best there is, it’s really not, but for some reason it stuck with me haha. it’s fun, it’s cute, it’s romantic. that’s about it.
(disclaimer: i won’t be adding any movies by studio ghibli, simply because they are all great and hayao miyazaki is probably the person i look up to most in life, so it wouldn’t be fair to all the other great movies haha)
into the forest of fireflies
beautiful, sad, sweet. a really good watch :’)
one of my favorite movies. ever. not even just animated. it’s so good.i don’t even know how to describe it. it’s so gentle and gorgeous and caring and deals with such delicate subjects in such a respectful way. just… watch it. it’s a must in my opinion
this one. my goodness. this is what i wish more queer movies would be like. a casual exploration of affection and relationship and sexual attraction. even if you don’t like anime you should give this one a watch. the animation is BEAUTIFUL (you can fight me on this!!) it’s a bit different than what we usually see so it takes a few minutes to get used to, but honestly i think it’s unique in the best way!
kimi no na wa
okay i know people talked about this one to death, so i’ll just say this: i had really high expectations for this one in it didn’t disappoint!! (and i CAN’T stress this enough: the animation is so beautiful you might start crying just from looking at it)
a silent voice
i’m pretty sure you at least heard about this one as well! i really liked it, it had a heavy subject and i felt like they did a good job portraying it! should definitely give this one a watch if you haven’t :) (it’s not the easiest one to watch, honestly i was quite shaken up after it, even though the ending is quite optimistic, so you should check trigger tags for it in my opinion ^.^)
and… that’s it! at least the ones i could think about ^.^ hope you’ll like at least some on them anon!
New video guys! This is a rare one! 1960′s El Fantasma De La Operretta, a Mexican film, subtitled, for, as far as I am aware, the first time online. A non-subtitled version (in lesser quality i might add) is on YouTube, but I have found nowhere else with subtitles.
Can you describe the makoharu first meeting scene?
Sure anon! :3 it was very cute! There were baby Makoto and Haru with their moms: they looked at each other and smiled *^* than an other little flash, Makoto was sad because he fell on the sand and baby Haru reached out his hand to him asking if everything was OK… Makoto smiled and took his hand ❤
Box Office: 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Stumbles Out Of The Gate In China
Even with the best Solo theatrical poster out there, the latest Star Wars Story is getting off to a miserable start in the world’s biggest moviegoing market. This is an odd situation, to be sure. At this point, Star Wars needs China more than China needs Star Wars. But, yet, Star Wars doesn’t really need China at all. The Last Jedi made $1.3 billion worldwide despite earning $42.6 million in China. Rogue One earned $1.1b despite a mere $69m gross in China. Oh, and The Force Awakens topped $2b with “only” $124m in China from a $33m opening day.
Yes, those numbers decreased from installment to installment. China sampled the goods with Episode VII and decided to pass. And the franchise has been beset by diminishing returns each time out. Rogue One dropped 45% from Force Awakens. Last Jedi dropped 45% from Rogue One. And it looks like Solo is going to drop around 45% from Last Jedi. At this rate, Star Wars 9 will be lucky to earn $11.38 million in China.
Jonathan Kasdan revealed there’s a deleted scene in Solo: A Star Wars Story involving Han Solo in Imperial aerial training and then subsequently getting kicked out of aerial training, he also adds that it featured a cameo from himself
No anon, not very long but it was very beautiful! There was their first meeting with the families, than a scene were Haru helped Makoto after he fell, one in wich Makoto begins to get close to haru, the one of the fisher’s burial, the first swimming club, the middle school (with other cute scenes) and finally the flashback ends with their second year of high school ^^
I cried ❤
