Would You Admit To Reading Yaoi?

HEY GUYS, I READ YAOI.

..Of course I can holler this here, or anywhere on the internet anonymously, but no way in hell am I doing it in real life. So this is what happened. I started talking to my friends about watching anime and the conversation went on to me going to cosplay as Asuna from Sword Art Online one day, and it escalated to my friend commenting that the outfit looked like something right out of hentai shit and her daring me to disagree, because “Who knows more about Hentai than me?”

And then the topic became Yaoi. And  not only one person– somehow, quite a couple of friends actually openly admit to reading and enjoying Yaoi and even people who are not really into anime eagerly pop into the conversation. Like whaaaaaaat.

Let’s not mention the fact that firstly, we’re underage to be reading this stuff. Okay I sound like a stupid goody-two-shoes. But when you say stuff like, “oh I read Yaoi and Hentai” in real life, you’re actually admitting that you read porn brazenly. Fine. Now that I think about it, there’s nothing wrong in this day and age anyway. Since i’m pretty sure that EVERY otaku reads at least smut or ecchi manga and even I wouldn’t believe anyone who says they don’t. So maybe my friends know that I do read Yaoi. I indulge in it so much, lol. Continue reading

Sweet Anime, What Have You Done!?

Uh-oh. Warning: this is gonna be another stupid rant about me, my life, and the terrible thing called homework which is haunting and persecuting me relentlessly. And of course, in the middle of this whole mess is the wondrous double-edged sword, sweet with a bitter aftertaste. ..And it’s…. ANIME.

OMG YES. I KNOW IT’S A BISHIE. CALM DOWN. I’ll just say this. Anime is freaking addicting and it has gotten worse ever since I found one whole pile of awesome anime to watch. I’ve been so excited just thinking about it, but one cannot expect to marathon anime and not have any negative repercussions. Of course, yes, homework and projects. Tomorrow, Monday, is an unexpected school holiday so my stupid Chemistry project (which I have no idea how to do and I haven’t started on it lol) is due then. And I shall not harp on the fact that I have no idea on what’s going on in class again.

I feel guilty, but I watch anime. AND HERE’S THE THING. My parents. Continue reading

Random Musings

So yeah hi! What do I feel like right now?

A terrible spoilt brat. And obviously it has got to do with homework. After all, that’s a 15-year-old student’s greatest nemesis, right? And it’s gotta do with the fact that it’s 2am. I’m turning nocturnal nowadays. Not that i’m complaining, but I get so tired and sleep in class. And I realized yesterday during recess that my classmates were passing down this message, which was to all stare at me. Yeah I was sleeping in an awkward position and I didn’t even realize my classmates’ evilness. Wait but that’s not the point. Continue reading

DON’T Call Anime A Cartoon

I don’t know, maybe anime, which is truly an ‘animation’, may be a subset of cartoons or something. BUT! It just hits a terribly sore spot when you call it a cartoon because cartoons come with the general idea and connotation of being childish and… lame.

We were talking about The Girl Who Leapt Through Time which our whole family watched, and when referring to it, my mum called it ‘that cartoon‘. GOSH I was so irked. It might not have had awesome visuals, but the plot was so good it nearly made me cry and the soundtrack was awesome too! Speaking of other such great movies, those by Hayao Miyazaki are pretty good! I watched Howl’s Moving Castle and it was so strange but cool :) Yes and the theme song was pretty good. I’ll post it here.

You know, Sungha Jung (THAT FAMOUS GUITARIST THAT’S SO GOOD) actually played a cover of that song too but I thought that it sounded better on the piano :P

Okay, anyway moving on with life, yesterday night was terrible. Continue reading

A Girl’s Emotional Turbulence

It could be PMS, or maybe it’s just my pent up feelings as a girl (I don’t know about guys). But there are times in this world that I just feel so screwed up, so stupid and so empty. Maybe it’s a major teenage identity crisis again, but I’ll never forget the dark periods in my life this year and last year when I couldn’t even say that I was alive.

I was seriously like that, during the end-year exam period last year. I didn’t see the purpose of me living and felt like absolute shit, because I had no purpose in life. I was completely absorbed by anime, but even while reading manga I was stricken by guilt because there were ongoing exams, but I continued reading. I just reading on and on. Continue reading

Living The Secret Otaku Life

Hi fellow otakus.. I don’t know if you go through the same thing as I do.

I’m not ashamed of my love of anime/manga but I somehow find it embarrassing when people (especially those who don’t know a thing about it) find out and talk about me reading manga. Idk, sounds contradictory, but it’s like an involuntary response.

Main example: Closing/switching tabs and plugging out earphones whenever family tries to look at what i’m seeing on my laptop. Next one is really aggravating. Whenever my friends and I go to Comics Connection (..they go see the K-pop stuff), I have to resist the urge to look at the huge collection of mangas and cool keychains. I just avoid anything anime-related when i’m with them.. Continue reading
