Winter 2014 Anime Take a Glimpse: Sakura Trick

Since tons of new anime is airing, I decided to do introductions to the ones currently on my watch list. If you want a preview of a newer series please keep reading!

If you're not up to date on the story:

"The story revolves around Haruka and Yuu, two girls who go to a high school that is slated to be shut down in three years.
To share something special between them, they share a kiss, and their relationship deepens from that moment onward."

From my first glimpse of the anime, I expected simple Yuri; the kind that isn't in your face, but is subtle and can only be noticed by looking deeply into the plot. However, Sakura Trick proved me wrong. The first episode starts out like a normal anime as our main characters, Haruka and Yuu, get ready for a new school year.

However, as the episode continues the relationship between the two progresses very quickly. Before you know it, they are locked together in a kiss. From then on out other antics occur purposefully or not. We are also introduced to four other characters, who are also paired off like Haruka and Yuu. At this point it's kind of easy to see where the anime is going.

Yet I don't like judging a book from it's cover, so I could be wrong. I look forward to see where this anime will go, as the next episode doesn't put as much emphasis on the main two, so I feel viewers can look forward to more character development of side characters in the future. While the comedy was kind of childish, and the situations are a little unbelievable, it doesn't take away from the anime as a whole. The first episode was great!

If you don't mind Yuri, I recommend watching!

Black History Month with Anime

Today is the last day of February, one of the shortest months of the year, and one that is filled with two holidays. Since I've already addressed Valentine's Day, I thought I'd take the time to talk a little bit about Black History Month. As you may or may not know, Black History Month is a holiday that is present in North America. It's a way to remember, celebrate, and appreciate the history of African-Americans. Instead of doing the normal way of celebrating, I thought I'd combine anime with this holiday as a way to bring awareness, and to share a few of my thoughts as well. I've done a post on diversity in anime  before, and discussed a few of my thoughts on race and physical differences when it comes to characters. Since anime doesn't necessarily list off the races of their characters, it's a little hard to celebrate a certain ethnic group using anime. Although others have found ways to do that, one featuring African-American themed cosplay , I

Learning Japanese Using Anime! Words of Advice

Learning Japanese isn't really an easy feat. The language has a lot of vocab, there's three forms of writing, and not to mention grammar. So while being an otaku, it's easy to turn to anime as a form of education. Since we watch it all the time, why not pick up a few things from it? However, there's a few things you need to watch out for. Watch Out for "Personalized" Forms of Speaking In the Japanese language, there are many ways to address yourself and others. The common word for talking about ourselves is Watashi. However, there are different ways to do this. Another word commonly heard in anime is Boku. We can use this word when we are male speakers. If we are female speakers, we would use the word atashi. While this isn't limited to these set gender roles, saying boku as a female would give a tomboyish image; atashi as a male would seem feminine. We've also experienced other types of this speech. If you're familiar with Narut
