This the super duper adorable anime Tsuredure Children, you meet – I want to say – eight different couples with completely different stories. At first, I thought it would be annoying switching between at least four relationships every single episode, but all it did was make me want to watch more. When you leave a couple, you are left on a cliff-hanger or with a major case of the feels. Every single relationship is different, which also makes it really interesting. If it was the same relationship, every single time, it would not be as cute as it is. I feel that this show did everything right. This show is the right amount of cute and angst from all the feels. This show is for every lover of romance ever.
In any great romance, there are some funny moments (I assume at least. I’ve never been in a relationship.). That’s where the webcomic My Giant Nerd Boyfriend by fishball comes in. It follows a real-life couple as they go through their everyday lives as artists and nerds. It’s not complete, but it is updated very often. I have finally gotten up-to-date with it (after binge-reading it for a day). I personally think that they are so cute together. Apparently, they have been together for four years, and are still so cute together. I personally think that they should get married, but I don’t want to force that on the two of them. When the time is right, they’ll do it. My shipping heart wants it to be soon though. Tell me if you agree!
In the webcomic set in the future, there is an amazing one known as Always Human by walkingnorth. It’s a beautiful romance between two very different girls with different goals for life. Every moment between them is beautiful; every moment is believable. One thing I enjoyed was that not every moment of their lives was not wrapped up in one another. They have struggles and friendships outside of their relationship. Not every moment is filled with fluff, even though the fluff was the cutest thing ever. And when the couple fought, it was over meaningful stuff, and their arguments were reasonable. They weren’t too nasty to one another, which made them even more adorable. I definitely would recommend reading this again and again.
Recently, I felt the need to read a sappy romance, as one often does. So I picked up Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks, for what feels like the third book. Yes, I know. Cliche, but I can’t help that he’s a good author. He has realistic characters and semi-realistic situations. (I’m not going to mention the Notebook because I can yet handle that amount of cheese.) If you have yet to know what it’s about, it’s about our protagonist escaping from an abusive relationship. It’s an interesting take seeing as in most stories about domestic violence, the person being abused is saved instead of saving his or herself. It was quite an enjoyable read since the romance wasn’t just at the forefront. Even though there are feelings present, that’s not all that’s there in case 100% cheesy romance isn’t your thing. Also, the plot twist is completely worth it in my opinion.
Recently I have finished reading The Princess Bride, the book that I have been meaning to read for a long time, but never did. Now that I have, I’m upset that I never did before. Can I say it was anything other than amazing? At this point, I’m going to cross between the book and the movie, because how can I not. I have seen the movie so many times, and I always loved it. I think that the reason that I didn’t read the book was that I didn’t want to hate the movie after reading the book. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The book was amazing, and it just made me love the movie even more, especially when I noticed lines of dialogue that I remember word for word from the movie (you know, that one thing that every fangirl and fanboy rejoices over). The one part of the book that I wasn’t a fan of was when the author would butt into the story. Since the book version that is well known is the abridged “good parts” version, it was helpful when the author explains why he took things out of the book (because there was apparently entire chapters were nothing happened). Other times… he spoils the plot. Had I not watched the movie, there are things that I wouldn’t expect from the genre. It was annoying, but I knew I wasn’t as annoyed as I would have been had I never learned the plot before. Since that is my only grievance, you can honestly skip his notes and pretty much miss nothing. Also, about halfway through the book, he says that he wrote an extra scene. There is no extra scene because of legal issues. If you look for it, all you will find is an apology letter. Trust me, I tried to look for it. But I would definitely recommend that you read this book.
Also, if you have some books that you would like my take on, recommend it to be in the comments. I’m always looking for books to read (even if there are about 1500 books currently on my GoodReads to-read list (I’m not even ashamed about that)). Also, if you want to check out my lists of books, go right ahead. Just know, my book list is a no-judgment zone.
Although the title of this post will make sense after you watch Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterunda (boy, I hope I spelled that correctly) or The Anthem of the Heart is an absolutely heart-wrenching watch. It was absolutely beautiful to watch. I watched this movie with some of my friends and we were talking about it for about half an hour about how amazing it was. About our favorite characters, the characters we hated with all of the passion we could muster. Yes, the movie takes a little to get going, but once it goes… Sometime soon, I do want to watch it again, without people’s heads in the way. But always remember scrambled eggs.
I really want to tell you guys more, but I fell like if I say anything, it would be a spoiler. Technically the title is a spoiler, but it doesn’t make any sense unless you get to the point where it actually comes up. Also, don’t read the synopsis on MAL; just trust me on this.
