Impressions on a Year 2008: Beginning With Interesting People

By TheBigN

I don’t know if I can do this next year, what with how the end of second year and the beginning of third year of med school (if I make it that far) goes. But more than about actually being able to see plenty of anime in 2009 is I’ll be motivated enough to keep track of stuff that grabbed my attention over this next year like I did this year. It’s been tiring and annoying to set this list up. But even most importantly, it’s been fun to try and do it again, especially when I’ve seen a lot more stuff in 2008 than 2007.  As always, my opinion is not the be all and end all, so feel free to comment and criticize about my picks. If I forgot someone, let me know. If you don’t agree with any of my choices, let me know (hopefully with more than “X character”>*, though :P). Hopefully this will be an enjoyable experience for you as well.:3

To begin with, for 2008 there are still several people that I like enough over the year to write about, but these are the ones that stick most in my mind, even though things might change over time. It was great knowing them, and hopefully I can get to know more characters that I liked from this year as well.

Thankful for Anime, 2008

By TheBigN

When I did this last year, I thought I was a little unique for setting it up the way I did. Turns out that this same format (and the title even), had been done for years past by one Jason Miao. Goes to show you how originality is hard to come by (orz). But it still is a good time to be thankful for yet another fun year in new anime series.

Initial Impressions on Shigofumi: It’s A Very, Very Mad World

Written by TheBigN

No matter how we slice it, death is inevitable, and I guess for most of us that live, that inevitability and that finality is damned annoying. You can’t overtake it, cheat it, escape from it and all that jazz. It’s the boss character that can’t be defeated no matter what, though many try their hardest to keep on living. As someone who’s filled with uncertainty and dislikes that, the vagueness of “the end” also bugs me. As a Christian, I should be comfortable believing that with my demise comes something better than anything I’ll ever experience in life. But I do wonder how this will occur, as well as think about all the many situations, worries and doubts that come with thinking about finality (What’s going to happen?!?), and I feel that a lot of people have those same types of feelings. And though I don’t want to think about it, those questions are always there, making it hard. For the moment, Shigofumi brings the questions, complexities, and maddening thoughts about death to full force, and I for one welcome this. 😛

If this was what AOL provided, how much less problems would it have with people? :P
