Recently, based on my watchings of ef, true tears and Tokyo Marble Chocolate, I found that I’m not enjoying these shows as much as others have. You could say that a common theme between the three is a focus on romance, be it the beginnings, the endings, and everything else that comes with it. I could say that it’s due to no real experience in matters of the heart, and I’m surely missing and important part of the human condition by not pursuing that sort of thing, which ties into why I’m not enjoying these shows as much as I should (or I could just be strange like that). But I’m fine with where I am now, and I’m not looking for a love from someone else anytime soon. And I liked works like Honey and Clover and 5cm, so it’s probably how the situation is explained (including the use of universal feelings), how I relate to the characters, or some other crap like that.
Am I’m missing out? Definitely. I’m sure that I’ll never be able to fully understand myself and some anime without knowing how it is to simply be loved or to love someone. Yet I still don’t mind being single at this moment, and others who are alone for some reason or another shouldn’t either as long as you follow this tenet demonstrated by this comic:
As Cho Marisa shows, loving someone else isn’t all important to survive. Just having love (and an awesome body) is enough. :3
Happy Valentine’s Day/Singles Appreciation Day. ❤
