magic train!

anonymous asked:

What are your favourite animes?

A few new favourites:

3-gatsu no lion (gorgeous anime scenery & food, deals with trauma/mental illness in a visually-interesting way, very deep and moody but then suddenly very light-hearted and goofy, lots of quirky characters including personified animals, simultaneously heart-warming, bittersweet, sad, & dorky)

91 days (a brutal italian gangster drama set during america’s prohibition era.  not for the faint of heart as it involves death & violence, but it’s worth it for the climactic plot, heavenly orchestral music, & backdrops that look like classic european paintings)

Absolute Duo (if you can get past the unnecessary flopping titties of teenage girls, the visual composition, music, aesthetic, & story are all very well done in this anime about a magic-training boarding school with a sinister undercurrent)

Assassination Classroom (a tentacled monster from outer space who destroyed 70% of the moon threatens to wipe out planet earth in one year’s time unless the lowly students from class 3-E can assassinate him first!  and it turns out that he is not only a big softie, but he imparts knowledge, confidence, and real life skills upon these low level students who were never given a second chance.  it’s so frickin japanese.)

Brave Witches (fleets of battle-ready teen witches fight a mysterious alien foe that suddenly manifested in the sky as a dark swirling cloud of terror.  still a pretty young anime but from what i saw, it had promise)

Old favourites:

Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Attack on Titan, Akira, Paprika, Mononoke (not the Princess), Studio Ghibli, Gundam, Ghost in the Shell, 07-Ghost, Twilight of the Dark Master, Kai Doh Maru, Makoto Shinkai films, Mamoru Hosoda films, Angel Egg, Sailor Moon, Kimi no na wa, blah blah blah

I’m sure I’m leaving out a billion, and I’m trying to get more into obscure stuff, so I’ll definitely share what I come across!

Calling all y’all readers and movie-watchers and fans around:

I’m looking for books and movies and stories, even fanfics, where the main character is friends with the ‘monsters’. Unlikely friendships. Teaming up with the ‘bad guys’ and learning that everyone’s the same and character development.

These are my faaaaavorites because it’s always about having a deep emotional connection with your friends (which my antisocial ass likes) instead of just being friends because of proximity and mutual interests (which my antisocial ass is kinda eh about).

If anybody has any suggestions, I’m always a slut for genuine friendship.

Future master in training

Yay! I’ve updated finally! Thanks a lot for your patience and support.

Well, I made this outfit design in 2012 (wow!!) partially based in those from Birth by Sleep. Curiously, I was thinking in Sora training to become master when I designed it five years ago. And now, knowing that Sora is officially travelling to Olympus Coliseum for training (Thanks KH 2.8!), I decided it was time to recover it with a bit more mature Sora!  (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

I’m thinking on posting the original 2012 design on Instagram just to compare (✿◠‿◠)

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Dusk by Michael Boys

This was a beautiful evening at the Magic Kingdom. The sky lit up with numerous clouds catching purple from the setting sun. The full moon perched above Prince Eric’s Castle was the proverbial cherry on top.

  • I have magic in my blood: It beats and throbs with my heart, never resting, never tiring.
  • I have magic in my tears: Rooted in the salt of the earth, my tears flow freely in pain, imbuing them with strength untold.
  • I have magic in my bones: They grew with me, seeing a world beyond themselves, and finding a way to harden but not too much.
  • I have magic in my cells: Tiny but infinite, like stars in the midnight sky, they signal back and forth, never giving up that fight.
  • I have magic in my eyes: They see the colors of the universe and though they are weakened by an inner age of their own, they still open wide and send their messages.
  • I have magic in my tongue: Trained over my life to speak, my tongue has the words of power on it and with them, the magic flows as easy as water.
  • I am magic: I am the witch.
