Happy Birthday Mizore-Chan!

Mizore Shirayuki

Today, December 7th, marks the birthday of one of my all time favorite characters, Mizore Shirayuki from the anime Rosario + Vampire! This is the second time celebrating her birthday on Shooting Star Dreamer. so please check out my previous post, "Happy Birthday Mizore-san."

Mizore Shirayuki is born on December 7th, and is a high school student at Yokai Academy. Being born on this date makes her zodiac sign, Sagittarius. She is a yuki-onna, which can translate to snow woman. This gives her a high level of control over ice which allows her to engage in combat. She is most known for her signature traits, being her lollipop she always has around and her high level of stealth.

Instead of focusing solely on Mizore, I'd like to take something from her as a character. Mizore is an interesting person, while being somewhat misunderstood, she is also wise beyond her years. Although there are many moments that I remember fondly, there is one quote that always stands out in my mind. Mizore states "Whether you're a monster or a human, there's no difference in the value of someone's life."

I really love this quote, because not only does it resonate with me, it reminds me of well...anime. We have so many series containing odd and unusual characters, but somehow we tend to fall in love with them despite all of this. The same can be said with the people in the 3D world, despite their appearances and personalities, they're all valuable, they're precious, and we need them on this planet.

At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter what race, sexual orientation, or gender a person may be. All that matters is that they are a part of this world. We should value them for this reason alone. I think if we apply this way of thinking to those around us in real life, the world can become a much better place.

So once again, Happy Birthday Mizore! Although your anime ages as time goes on, you will still be remembered and cherished. Hopefully you all enjoyed this quick birthday shout out, and if there's a character you wish to see on Shooting Star Dreamer, please leave me a comment and let me know!

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
