    14 Things You’ll Almost Always See in Anime – Part 2

    by chad

    Here’s part 2! You can read part 1 here.

    8. Repetitive name yelling

    Ever see characters spending quite some time and effort emotionally yelling their names to each other? The more they say their names, the more intense the scene becomes. The photo above comes from a parody in Minami-ke where the heroines watch a TV drama centering on the forbidden love of Ninomiya-kun and her Sensei. Their script would be nothing more than Ninomiya-kun saying ‘Sensei!’ and the Sensei shouting ‘Ninomiya-kun!’ all the time until they embrace. It’s hilarious!

    Higurashi: When They Cry Review

    by chad

    I never really watched anime that much anymore after high school, but this got me hooked me up again. I found out about Higurashi when a friend who went to Japan gave me Deformation Maniac Figures of some of its characters. I got curious on what kind of anime it was, and voila! I was watching again before I knew it.

    Synopsis: The story is set in a fictional rural village of Hinamizawa of 1983. Our protagonist Keiichi Maebara, who recently moves in, befriends his new classmates (Rena, Mion, Satoko and Rika) and participates in after-school club activities comprised mostly of card and board games. The village may seem peaceful and ordinary at first, but that all comes to an end at the village’s annual Watanagashi (Cotton-Drifting) Festival – to pay homage to their local god, Oyashiro-sama – when Keiichi discovers that for the past four years, one is always murdered and one disappears on the day of the festival. Keiichi is then drawn to the strange events happening, and the truth is slowly revealed.

    14 Things You’ll Almost Always See in Anime – Part 1

    by chad

    Upon watching series after series, I’ve noticed recurring patterns in anime that would almost make them rather stereotypical. They’re fun, and it certainly makes watching a new batch of series with a sense of familiarity. On the downside of course, one would know what to expect next. It’s just a matter of how they’d play out the scenes. I bet you’ve noticed these X-factors of Japanese cartoons already. Here’s my list!

    1. Japanese Etiquette

    This is a given. Since anime is from Japan, proper etiquette and social behaviors are prominent within the characters. Such as bowing, saying “itadakimasu” (I humbly receive) before meals, “okawari” (More, please) and Gochisosama-deshita (Thank you for the food) after. A dramatic scene would include the heroine say “Okaeri” (Welcome home) to the hero after a life-deciding battle, and the hero would respond a heart-warming “Tadaima” (I’m home).

    Welcome, Friends! To My New Refuge!

    by chad

    Before anything, belated Merry Christmas and advanced Happy New Year!

    Welcome to Akashic Records! a new blog I’ve been inspired to create and maintain just about five minutes ago. After almost three long years of personal non-blogging (I blog about my profession at Perfect Renders), I finally gave in and accepted the fact that my most awesome experiences aren’t complete without them being written anywhere.

    Shedding more light on the title, ‘Akasha’ has various interpretations on a number of cultures and religions, having my two main favorites as (1) the basis and essence of all things in the material world – in Hinduism, and (2) the ethereal compendium of all knowledge and history – in Thesophy. The anime “Kara no Kyoukai“, carrying reason number 2, introduced me to this term. It has stuck to me ever since.

    Formal Introduction. You can call me Chad. I’m a fresh graduate of Entrepreneurship at the University of Santo Tomas and I currently run Perfect Renders Multimedia Solutions, a local enterprise in the Philippines offering mainly video production services, graphic design and web development.
