What's in Store for December?

Salutations and greetings everyone! So we've just entered December, temperatures are falling, and certain areas of the world are blessed with snow. When you come home from the cold and embrace the warm inside, how about checking out what I have in store for you guys?

Throughout this month I really want to do things to share different forms of media with you all. Since we're nearing the holidays, I'll be posting quite a bit of holiday themed music. You can also expect a few wallpaper packs and various images flying around. 

When it comes to anime, I'm going to get into a few anime series. I have a watchlist for the Fall season that I have started, but haven't finished. If you remember, I said I decided that I would try every anime on my list. I've talked about one series or so, on this blog, but I would love to do a post on every single one. However, if I did not enjoy a series, would a post on why I didn't enjoy it still be beneficial to you all? Please let me know! I usually like to avoid writing negative posts. 

In addition to everything above, December is my birthday month, so expect a lot of anime birthdays from me as many of my favorite characters also have December birthdays. Again, if there's a character you would like to see here please let me know, as I would love to do a post on them. 

So that's pretty much it for now. Instead of doing an event on a single day, like Halloween, I would like to spread things around during the whole month, as many of us will become busier during the holiday time.

That's all for now! Shooting Star Dreamer shall remain active during the rest of December, so please keep a close watch for any new posts! Until then, see you!

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
