Who’s Your Favourite Best Friends in Anime?

Which characters do you think have the best friendship in anime? One friendship that stands out to be is Junpei and Yuji from Jujutsu Kaisen because they barely got any time together. They were so wholesome too, making it all sadder.

Don’t Like the Content? Mute or Block

It’s strange to me when people complain about seeing ships they don’t like on their timeline or headcanons they don’t like. Just mute or block the account? There’s no hard feelings – if anything they’d rather prefer you to not interact with their content if you’re going to bring negativity to them. Artists and writers work hard on what they do and don’t deserve to have negative comments or threats sent to them. Muting and blocking takes two seconds and is super easy to do! I think it’s a great idea!

So, Here’s My Bad Poetry

I did a poetry course last year because I’m finishing up my Communications degree. I had to put together a portfolio and honestly I’m not a big poetry fan so I thought I’d share my poems because I don’t care about them but think I did okay:

I Wish To Wake Up

I wish to wake up again.

To be here

but not there.

I wish to walk upon this lush earth,

and feel the petals curl through my toes.

I thought I could be taught

how to wake up again.

To stand up in the blooming field

And proclaim, “I am here!”

I wish to wake up again.But I can’t seem to drag…

        my feet out of the bed.

To The Beach

If I could drag my feet out of bed…

i would crawl my way to the beach.

I would dive into the waves even if I bled.

i’d wash away to a place no-one can reach.

I would love to curl my toes in the sand

as the heat swelters over me like a swarm.

And then in the shrill waves I would stand

where no-one could ever, ever stay warm.

No matter how much you cry out, it’s already done.

i shall go and you shall stay, my love.

After all, these waves weigh a ton.

i’m where sun’s rays can’t find me: a dead, silent dove.

All around me ashes burn with a metallic smell,

        so, I will accept that I might go to hell.

The Smell’s Stitched Into My Clothes

The smell’s stitched into my clothes.

as the ashes burn in the orange flame

i stoke the red fire until it’s slowly tame.

The smell’s stitched into my clothes.

under my warm skin their ashes hide

as they fizzle down into the freezing tide.

The smell’s stitched into my clothes.

even as the leaves blow through the gale

their paling faces seep into the sky’s glowing veil.

their smiling mouths are a stitched-together lie,

as you stand over them for your final good-bye.

The smell’s stitched into my clothes.

The smell’s stitched into my clothes.

as I stood over your body, I pitied my strength and

pitied their fear. We now enter rows.

The smell’s stitched into my clothes.

         Tell them: embrace life, live free.

         And please, straighten your bows.

You Are Galaxies of Magic

You glow in the frost-bitten light

as ashes dance upon your lips.

I know you have galaxies of magic

hidden beneath your diming skin.

The stars leap through the cosmos

as blood courses through your veins.

In every breath, in every cell

the planets will twirl through your hair.

The moons swirl around celestial bodies

while your skin is as cold as this white plane.

        What a beautiful sight you were.

Which Anime Has The Best Fandom?

Fandom is a heavilyyyyy debated topic. Do you believe that there is an anime with a ‘best’ fandom? Perhaps one that is known to be fairly non-toxic, creative, or chill?

Usually to make your fandom experience I would just suggest muting and blocking people who make content you don’t like. There’s no hard feelings! It’s just to curate your space how you want. Fandom is about engaging in a positive way for yourself after all.

Are There Any Concert Band Anime?

I want to see an anime based upon a concert band! Show me the students struggling to practise! Using them instrument stereotypes, a mean conductor, the first violinist falling ill suddenly, the flutes being too loud, the brass mucking around, and the percussion being underappreciated. It could be like a cute slice of life with different episodes following different characters in different sections. Or it could be like a war game between sections and chairs. Who wants to write the script?

5 Facts to Know About Todoroki Enji

  1. Endeavour stars off the series as 45 years old, his birthday is August 8th, he’s 195cm tall, his weight is 118kg, his blood type is AB, his favourite food is kuzumochi, and he was born near the Shizouka Prefecture.
  2. While his blood type is AB, Shoto has the blood type O. For this to be realistically possible, Endeavour would have to have a rare genetic mutation known as Cis AB. Having this mutation is the only genetically possible way for a person with an AB blood type to have a child with an O blood type.
  3. Endeavour’s surname contains the kanji for ‘roar’ (轟 todoroki) while his first name contains the kanji for (炎 en), and ‘boss’ (司 ji). Enji is a common component of male names. When written in the Latin alphabet, Endeavour’s name is also the same name as a fire god in Albanian mythology who was worshipped by the Illyrians. Endeavour’s hero name also means ‘attempting to achieve a goal,’ which is very fitting for him.
  4. In Endeavour’s original concept, he was an instruction at U.A. Horikoshi got rid of this idea though because having both the 1st and 2nd highest ranking hero’s in Japan as teachers at U.A. would favour Class 1-A too much – since most conflicts the school would face would then be too easy to deal with.
  5. According to the Ultra Archive, Endeavour’s stats are:
    Power 5/5 (A)
    Speed 5/5 (A)
    Technique 5/5 (A)
    Intelligence 4/5 (B)
    Cooperativeness 2/5 (D)
    While his stats according to the Ultra Analysis are:
    Power 6/6 (S)
    Speed 5/6 (A)
    Technique 5/6 (A)
    Intelligence 4/6 (B)
    Doting Father 6/6 (S)

Why Do Studios Make Anime That Are Bad?

There are many amazing anime out there. But there is equally the same amount of mediocre or bad anime. It makes you wonder – why do bad anime get green-lit to be made?

It takes a lot of effort after all to make an anime. There’s (sometimes) royalties, scripts, budgeting, directing, animating, producing, voice acting, editing, and so much more. With so much going into making an anime, why would people bother to put so much effort into something they know will flop commercially? It’ll just be a waste of money. For companies they’re lucky they’ll break even or at worse, go into debt. For staff members, they can be lumped into the idea that they ‘helped make’ a ‘bad’ quality’ series even if they have no say.

So to answer for the question – it seems that these anime are made because of poor planning and communication. The original script is not what is made. A script/pitch is brought before many different people who have their own ideas and own power within the production. Each department having a different budget and ideas and communication channels effects how well something ends up.
