But I’m not just going to talk about random anime that I watched. I’d rather give the spot light to my favorites. Although I’d rather keep it short since all I want to do is give an intro and talk mainly about how I feel.
Let’s start off with nothing else but Gugure Kokkuri-San! I’d put it in the genre of Slice Of Life and Fantasy. I didn’t know I’d end up loving this series because I kinda rushed watching it, like maybe overnight and a half day-ish. I just needed something light and neutralizer from watching Parasyte: The Maxim. But I ended up loving this show more than Parasyte!
Gugure Kokkuri-San is a light humored show revolving on a small girl named Kohina. She has a bob hair. and I just realized this but if there’s a fetish category for megane, then there should also be for bob-haired girls because I can’t get enough of them LOL.
Anyway this show has a lot of references from other shows that I really enjoy seeing and it is satisfyingly hilarious.. Some stuff that I’ve spotted are Dragon Ball Z, E.T. Movie (see gif above), Star Wars (?!?!), Inuyasha, possibly many more. The situations and settings are outlandishly weird but for some reason the frustrations of the characters are so relatable.
What really touched my kokoro is the ending.. I won’t talk about it in details but you know, I came to watch light humor so I was expecting to leave the show with a smile on my face, although it delivered, there is a sad tug on my heart for the unseen background story that is happening.
Sometimes life proves to be all fun and games, however looking at the bigger picture the presence of suffering and loneliness are there too. Life can be cruel after all. It doesn’t mean we have to endure it w/ a heavy heart, instead we try to ease it by laughing it off, or appreciating the people around us or being grateful for the good things. And why not? Life goes on anyway~ it’s too short not to treasure every moment.
So much feels for a comedic anime? The message is very subtle on the show, and is quite subjective but it was the piece I picked up and learned.
