Dreaming of Anime: Shooting Star Dreamer Blog Update?

Sorry about the lack of posts, but there's been so much going on lately, that I've had little time to just sit and think. I get most of my ideas from dreaming, like my blog's name. No, not literally dreaming at night, but day dreams and thinking about the future. I guess this post could be considered a blog update, but it's basically me just talking about my thoughts now that I've finally gotten the chance to sit and think about my blog, and anime of course.

Although my individual posts may not get enormous amounts of views, the fact that my blog has now reached 50k total, is pretty stunning. I never expected so many people would read my writing, much less, I didn't expect it to be any good. So I thank everyone single one of those viewers!

I will continue to bring forward new posts and topics, relating to anime, video games, Japan, and more. I have also been watching a few new anime during this season. I will make posts on those soon, just please give me a little bit of time. (Especially since I found one I really like.)

Despite the fact that I will be working on new posts, I would like to re-share a few of my old ones that I really liked. If you have free time or if you are simply curious, please take a look at them.

Aside from my blog, I really love the way anime is also moving forward, even here in America. I run into more and more people who love anime, and it's now being seen as something important. People are actually taking anime seriously, and I love that. I would love to continue working to break the otaku stereotype, but I feel that might not be an easy thing to change.. It's going to take a lot of work, but I wont give up.

That's all for now! please look forward to more posts in the near future and check the ones I link here if you have a chance.

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
