One Piece >>>> Your Life!!!

One Piece >>>> Your Life!!!
I began a new Japanese Anime called “One Piece”.  It takes a while for it to get interesting, but it really is a great show.  I will give a little background information on anime before I talk about “One Piece”.
The main story for many anime often consist of:

1) Main character  is a standout individual – Usually very out spoken personality or an outcast of some kind.

2) Epic Goal – The protagonist has some kind of ultimate goal.  This goal most of the time seems impossible and the protagonist is mocked for their foolish wishes/dreams.

I really enjoy anime.   The world has always shown great enjoyment, for tales from the “Epic” genre.  Many of the anime tv shows fall under the “Epic” genre.  Take “One Piece” for example…it currently is on it’s 601 episode!! Unlike North American shows, that seem to get cancelled ALL THE DAMN TIME.


These shows are taken from Mangas (Japanese comics) and are pretty similar to bildungsromans.

NEW WORD!!!!!! Bildungsromans: “ildungsroman (German pronunciation: [ˈbɪldʊŋs.ʁoˌmaːn]German“novel of formation/education/culture”),[1] novel of formationnovel of education,[2] or coming-of-age story is a literary genre that focuses on the psychological and moral growth of theprotagonist from youth to adulthood (coming of age),[3] and in which character change is thus extremely important.”

That is another common theme in animes/mangas, the characters usually start out as kids and grow into adults.  For example “Naruto” I think is at 600 episodes right now and 300 are dedicated to him as a youth while the other 300 is him as a teenager.

Now I think North American ADD prevents people from even thinking that any show can be enjoyed for that long (600+)….I disagree, people just need to chill and stop pretending they critics.  Just enjoy this shit (JETS).

….its all types of backwards here.

Lol…I need to move to Japan….*sigh*…Fuck it…I am going at the end of the year.

Really do me one favour watch this and tell me this don’t look dope….

Dope ass song…Kanye recently dropped a new album Yeezus.  It definitely shows grow from his debut record College Dropout.

I remember listening to this song taking the bus/subway to college….This album got me through some long ass classes!

So this entry really doesn’t have a topic per say, so I will just write about my day.

I spent the entire day in the library completing an essay and reading George Eliot’s The Mill on the Floss.  Fun fact about that book, George Eliot is a female.

I really don’t want to throw this book under the bus but….it really is tough to get through!

fyi Asians stay taking their children to the library….blacks…not so much…

My Next Destination???

My Next Destination???
I think I want to move to Japan.  Once I get my English degree I am going to seriously look into teaching English and see if there is any opportunity to live there.
I am obsessed with their anime.  It really is my favourite thing to watch over anything else.  It also does not help that I am completely delusional when I watch them.  I relate myself to the characters and apply my life to them where I can.
Not going to lie, I have even lied to females and told them I had family shit to handle all because I wanted to watch anime or read a manga.
I have no idea whether or not I should be embarrassed or ashamed….dah well.
Anyway, I am pretty serious about this Japan thing.  It is on my list of places to go and I’ll go solo too!
Shit I need to learn Japanese….
