It seems like I mention Sweetness & Lightning every time I post. It's a very cute, lighthearted and adorable show, but every episode drops a few feels on you. Not so much that it loses focus, but it's not nothing, either. I cried at least once every episode, but I'm also very sentimental and relate very strongly to this particular series.


I'm gonna take a guess and say you're a dad. This show resonated with me too, being a father of a little girl myself.


Yep, you nailed it.

Not only that, but when our boy was two years old, my wife was seriously injured and had to stay off her feet for about six months. It was up to me to cook everything, and I had to learn from zero (and, like Kotori, I hate knives.)

Thankfully my wife is fine now, but yeah, that show speaks to me in just about every other way. (I still do most of the cooking!) Our son even loved to help in the kitchen when he was little just like Tsumugi does. He's 17 now, and still likes cooking. He's a better baker than I am.

I'm sure you'll understand this: one of my favorite things about the show? Tsumugi's tantrums. Finally an anime kid that acts like a kid. :D

But yeah. I don't drink anymore, but I'd buy Kouhei a beer if I could.

How old is your little girl? I hope Halloween was fun!



That's a great story, well, not your wife getting injured, but it's always nice to find an anime you can relate to. It can be difficult to find one, but this one totally had me nodding in agreement. Tsumugi's tantrums were spot on. There's the one episode where she goes missing and they're running around trying to find her. I know that dread as a parent. Worst feeling in the world.

My girl is 7 so a little older than Tsumugi, but I remember that age like yesterday. My wife does most the cooking. She's Japanese so we eat a lot of Japanese cuisine. In fact a lot of the dishes they made in the show we eat, so that's another thing I could relate to. Luckily my daughter isn't a picky eater and eats just about everything.... not that she has a choice.

I'd totally buy Kouhei a beer. He seems like a guy I could share a drink with and talk about boring parent stuff. Stay strong you few Parent CR


Heh. I'd love to try the recipes in the show; it's very cool that the manga lays them all out for you. I can manage a decent ramen at this point, but haven't tried much else Japanese.

You stay strong, too! :D

Noragami.

Most of the time, it's laugh-out-loud funny, or a pretty good actioner with excellent characters who are equal parts badass and vulnerable.

A couple times, though, here and there, I cried my damned eyes out.

Grave of the Fireflies without a second doubt. The movie is really sad from the beginning, since we already get to know how this all will end and we just sit and watch as the suffering goes on.

Grave of the Fireflies is just insanely sad. Hard to watch it's so sad.

Yuri on Ice has it's moments. Yuuri in Ep.7
episode 10
is so beautiful it leaves me in tears, and several other scenes as well.

The Eccentric Family, when the mom and her four sons are huddled together, crying, after learning that their father has been cooked and eaten by the Friday Fellows.

Wolf Children, several scenes, and in general the entire plot.

But the one that really hits is in Spirited Away, the scene on the train, when all these black ghostly figures shuffle off the train at a station, and you realize that they are the spirits of the dead wearily shuffling off to the afterlife like commuters tiredly going home after a long work day. So poignant, yet not a word of dialog is spoken, and it's just an incidental scene not important to the story, yet will move you to tears. There's a reason shy Miyazaki is considered to be possibly the world's greatest animator!

To be honest, I didn't find Your Lie in April all that sad. Saw it coming a mile away, and have seen it done better (pretty similar to the plot of the movie Harold and Maude).

Yes. There's a similar poignant moment in Porco Rosso, a memory from Marco's time in the war. This scene has haunted me since I first watched it many years ago.

Haruhi

Haruhi Suzumiya gives me a feeling of hope. a hope in aliens, future women, otherworlders, and espers. Some think I'm joking (100% of these people are wrong) or are a total weeaboo (may be right) by holding Haruhi on a pedestal. I think Tanigawa's genius is fully realized in this series and the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is my favorite anime, and that is sometimes difficult to say in the face of such beautiful works being put out right now. I was VERY late to the party, having only seen this anime this year. That being said, I think it's a blessing I was so late, because upon my followup consumption of material related to the world of Haruhi, I've noticed so much jadedness and outright anger against such a character.

Some call her a bully. Others outright demand she be removed from the memories of everybody and her memory banished from time. I have not seen such outrage against a main character in anything before. Yet, naive as I was (am), I fell in love with her. I fell in love with all her flaws and strengths both - she's unreasonable.. she's illogical ... her dreams have no limits. Being with her makes me feel lighter than air.

However, a marriage is a ship at sea - rocky, sometimes unpleasant, but we're in this together sure as shore, Haruhi and I. I don't leave my future ex wife just because some new meat comes sluffing through my queue dolled up in the season's moe trope trappings. We're in this for the long haul!

Noragami

Before I seen much of anything in my past life (the life before my anime obsession), I lazily put on this little series that I thought may be nice to vacation with, having been hit hard by a few impactful, but very serious & grim story binges just a fortnight prior... I did not expect it to become my favorite spiritual story, one that I hold dear as my go-to therapy series when it all gets a little much out there.

Noragami was the first anime that reached beyond the screen and touched me in a big way - of the fragility of human connections and for asking such bold questions, like, "if mortals cease to believe in a god, or champion their name, do they cease to exist?"

Yato is the first character I've really created a bond with.. I feel like he could be my bro, if I was a demigod of death of the calamity clan. But really - he and the whole cast of norgami give me a feeling of warmth and family that no other anime has challenged so far.

Re:Zero

Unanticipated.. I did NOT see episode 18 coming. Subaru's inflection-point breakdown soliloquy at marker 14:17 will, in my opinion, go down in history as one of the most powerful scenes in this generation's anime annuals.

It's the type of breakdown we never see in many other series' attempts to create these "gets pushed to the limit" type of characters.

I felt a deep sense of catharsis watching his phoenix moment.. if you ever have gone through an identity crisis, or helped a close one weather one, you may feel similar attachment and significance to an already gut-wrenching powerful soliloquy.

If you haven't seen it yet, please, I beg of you, check it out

Konosuba

I have not laughed so hard watching a series as I have with Kazuma and Aqua. Fondly hold this series close to my heart, despite some of the fanservice and other uglies. D-Frag is a close second mention, but Konosuba... wow. What a deceptively deep and satisfying comedy.

ERASED

Watching this was the first time that I realized there are stories within this artform that can carry significant, wholesome lessons and delights that go above entertainment. Stories & authors who take this shit seriously, and whose works show it. Real power. Real magic. Real love. Real loss. No fanservice (negotiable to materiality, I don't mind it if it fits.. get it.. fits.. lik- oh hell, okay boys, pack it up, show's over, we used up our terrible pun quota ages ago in this post).

Ahm.

Sorry. Where were we?. . Oh yes.

Prior to watching ERASED last year, I was a fairweather fan of mostly tired mecha and fantasy themed works, perhaps watching a series or two a year. I've never been so grateful of a 'random' button on any game or application as the 'random' button on CR.

.

In conclusion:

Go enjoy the big, ol' world out there. Don't be afraid to step out the comfort zone. I'm bout to drop my favorite quote of all time and it happily fits into the topic:



' we hardly know ourselves,
if we know nobody else
only in our loneliness
does heaven become hell '

I got to say in Re:Zero the scene where Subaru is asking Remi to run away with him to another town that whole back and forth dialogue between them both I really loved that. I'm not going to spoil anything if you havn't seen the show but that seen right there was probably the best part in the whole series. Gets me every time I watch it.

I would say A silent voice is probably the deepest hitter for me. But the soundtrack itself is probably one of the best soudtracks I have heard in a while. The concept behind it always backs the film up every step of the way. Not only that.........but the portrayal of loneliness is something i havent seen in a long time . Its quite a special movie I think.And the animation is gorgeous and it probably the most beautiful animation I have ever seen in my life.
