It is a theory that if I mention food more people will be likely to click on my post? Did it work? Before I leave again for another conference I thought I would talk about a few of my favorites so far this spring season.
- Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku
I am so happy that I saw some of you posting about this, without your posts I never would have watched or heard of this anime. For me this has been the top show that I’ve been looking forward to each week and I’m so sad when each episode is over.
I love the fact that this is a romance that is out of high school. It is nice to see something with adults. Also the main character is really easy for me to relate to. I know what it is like to hide what I’m interested in so I won’t feel judge. It was a slow process (now that I have anime posters in my classroom the cat is out of the bag… no going back). She reminds me of myself.
When she meets a guy who knows that she is an otaku… It is hard to admit your love for something. Being judge by others is a real fear. I think the more I step out and admit to my weirdness the more free I feel. It took awhile to get to that point.
This anime has the sweetest romantic moments and the humor so far is laugh out loud hilarious. If you aren’t watching this anime, you really are missing out. So I hope you give this one a shot.
2. Crossing Time episode 3
Okay so my number 2 choice is a single episode. This one is all shorts and the first two have been eh… I’m so happy I stuck around for the third one though. I think it is because I’m a teacher, but this one was cute and funny and if you don’t watch any other episode from this anime take a shot at the third one.
Although I probably only think it is funny since I’m an awkward adult…
After getting a few comedies in I am really liking and totally buying the badass moments that this anime gives me. I am eating it up.
I love the dystopian-like world. I’m liking the character. The music is on point. I’m really hoping this one delivers in the end. I’m all on board with gearless Joe.
Those are my top three so far this year, I’m still watching a lot of the others but I wanted to shout out these three quickly.
Conference one is done and I’m leaving this afternoon for conference two. I got my rejections last week. They liked what I had but it is not what they are looking for at the moment. So I’m dusting myself off and headed out again.
I just want to say thank you to everyone for your kind words of encouragement while I was gone. Coming back to seeing your reasons why made my heart so full. The rejections didn’t hurt so bad when I saw how I’m surrounded by such wonderful and dedicated people. Thank you for listing your reasons. I’ve felt so uplifted this week and if I need to collect 1000 rejections before I get a yes, I know I have an awesome community in all of you cheering me on.
Thank you and Happy watching :).
