Luffy vs. Blueno | Gear 2nd

“I’ve thought of a way to fight with all my strength so I won’t lose to anybody! So I won’t ever have to lose anybody. You won’t be able to catch up with me anymore. All of my techniques have evolved by one step.”

Luffy vs. Rob Lucci | Gear 3rd

“No matter what!!! I’m not gonna give up. Until I defeat you…. I’m not going down! Until I defeat you!”

Luffy vs. Doflamingo | Gear 4th

“You’ve made my friends cry, enraged my Nakama and yet you refuse to fall! So I’ll shoulder all the responsibility, I won’t let a single person die. You and your ‘birdcage’ are the damn thorn in my side. Gear Fourth!”

Boku No Hero Academia/ Hero Academia First Impressions

I was once an anime fan during the heyday of anime. During the days of Ichigo storming soul society and we learning what bankai is, during the days Luffy was inventing gear 2nd and Zoro was collecting swords and when Naruto was still considered an underdog. Then, all the underdogs became demi-gods in their respective universes and it just got out of hand.

Boku No Hero Academia has reinvigorated my love for anime/manga. My favorite part is that they lose. The heroes, despite showing prowess and strength, do not always win. And that, is the central message of the show I think. Being hero does not mean you win but willing to lose.

The story is focused on Midoriya and All Might and it’s your classic underachiever with great potential. Midoriya’s power is given to him by an equally powerless All Might and like many other loveable underdogs his power his sheer willpower. Being born powerless in a powerful world, Midoriya understands the nature of power and is better suited to fit this “hero” archetype. All Might’s prowess is a foreshadowing of what Midoriya may one day be but if my understanding of One For All is correct he will be even stronger than All Might. Having said that, each hero with “quirks” all have a fatal flaw. In too many anime’s it is all about getting MORE power but in Hero Academia it is a journey of UNDERSTANDING what power is.

Despite having heroes with abilities we must not forget it is EVERYONE’S story. Everyone in the academy is under-going their own personal hero story. Watching the show makes me realize that the protagonist could have easily been anyone else in the show and that is what is amazing to me. It is a bold move to give supporting characters as good if not better backstories but it is working for me. Having caught up on the anime I think I’m going to have to read the manga now. THat’s it for now.

Scripturient Bodoh #1

Semakin ke sini, saya semakin berpikir,

“Saya itu alay ya,”

Dulu sih. Coba rekan yang punya blog tumblr, buka archive kalian. Buka kenangan jaman dulu kalian. Buka jaman jahiliah kalian. Ea.

Saya awalnya enggak mau.

Tapi gak sengaja kebaca pas iseng-iseng custom tumblr. Lalu muncul postingan tahun-tahun yang lalu. Postingan puisi galau (ya sekarang juga sih kadang). Postingan lucu. Postingan gak jelas di reblog. Dan banyak lainnya.

Tapi saya bersyukur. Berarti sekarang saya berubah. Ibarat Pokemon, Pikachu, sekarang sudah jadi Raichu. Ibarat One Piece, Gear 1st Luffy, sekarang sudah Gear 2nd. Ibarat channel tv, TV7, sekarang sudah jadi Trans 7. Ya gitu. Perumpamaannya something ya.

Orang yang berharga bagi saya pernah berkata, “masa lalu orang itu pasti ada lho yang buruk, tidak ada yang tidak,”. Benar sih, ya contohlah diri masing-masing. Tinggal masa depan yang bisa diubah. Jangan kelamaan ngelihat sepion, nanti majunya susah. Jangan maju enggak ngelihat sepion, nanti bisa nabrak kendaraan yang nyalip. Itu sepionnya kalau dua. Kalau satu sendirian namanya apa? Kesepion. *krik*

Ho iya, saya akhir-akhir ini menyelami tumblr yang follow saya dan yang saya follow. Setelah menyelam, ternyata tumblr yang baik itu yang memang punya ciri khas. Semisal tumblr yang biasa post puisi galau, gampang ditemui dan sudah biasa *saya pun juga. Tapi tumblr yang membuka wawasan? Wah itu jarang tuh. Atau tumblr yang isinya melatih kaderisasi diri, mengkritisi pemerintah, catatan ekspedisi, desain interior, yang semacam itu lebih menarik tuh.

Saya ingin mengajak rekan supaya menulis keluar dari genre yang itu-itu saja. Tulisan yang keluar dari batas nyaman rekan. Saya pernah ditantang menulis mengenai otak, itu ternyata menarik juga lho, saya sampai belajar jalur dari otak sampai ujung tangan. Saya pernah ditantang juga menulis tentang masalah dokter Indonesia, saya sampai riset ke mana-mana, dan itu asik banget tuh.

Sudah saatnya rekan, tumblr kita tidak melulu soal galau pasangan. Sudah saatnya rekan, tumblr kita tidak melulu soal galau hijrah-not hijrah. Sudah saatnya rekan, tumblr kita tidak melulu soal si dia. Iya, dia. Ea.



*tulisan ini hanya kicauan asal. semoga kicauan berkah nggih. Wallahua'lam bisshawab.
