What Anime Character Would You Voice?

Published July 19, 2016 by Shay Taree

As many of you know I do love to watch anime dubbed in English but I also do watch subtitles but if given the option I will watch the dub. 
But it got me to thinking about what anime characters would you love to voice if give the chance. I thought of 5 characters that I would love to voice!

1. Serena/Usagi (Sailor Moon): 

I would love to voice Serena because she is such an iconic character for me and one that I’ve always looked up to die to how caring she is for her friends and loved ones. I feel like voicing her would just make me feel happy and enjoy life. 

2. Panty (Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt): 

Now I know that this is a stark difference from Serena but for some reason I feel like voicing Panty would be so much fun. Panty is extremely vulgar but I feel like voicing her would be a great way to let go of stress. 

3. Momo (Peach Girl):

I would have loved to voice Momo because I totally felt for her when it came to how she dealt with her friend Sae. 

4. Misty (Pokemon): 

The main reason I would love to voice Misty is because she has a tough exterior but underneath she is very soft and still a total girl and I love all those different sides of her. 

5. Meiko “Menma”(Anohana): 

So of course I had to add one character that is associated with a sad show and I absolutely loved the show Anohana even though it did make me cry. But the character Menma really touched me because of how pure she was and was always looking out for her friends and wanting to make sure that they are okay and she also just wanted them to be friends again. She is definitely the peacemaker and I feel like voicing her would be an emotional but amazing experience. 

Alright so those are my top 5 characters that I would love to voice if I was able. So what do you think of my list and please comment down below with one character that you would voice if you were able to.

I can’t wait to read your comments!

Saddest Anime Scenes 😞

Published January 8, 2015 by Shay Taree

Now many of us have watched our variety of anime and some have scenes that get us pretty choked up. While some scenes just get you upset and make you feel down there are a few others that honestly make you shed some tears or cry uncontrollably. Trust me I’ve had a few of these moments. Now I just want to say that there may be a few spoilers of you haven’t seen the anime’s that I mention.

So I’m going to list 4 different anime scenes that made me cry or made me sad.

1. The flashback scene in Naruto after he defeats Pein and it shows just how badly he was treated.

This episode totally made me upset with everyone in the village with how they were treating Naruto. While I understood that they were scared they shouldn’t have treated an innocent child like that.

2. The final scene in Anohana when they are playing hide and seek trying to find Menma and they finally do. This is also the scene when all of the kids are able to seen Menma for the first time.

Now Anohana was just a rolle coaster of feelings from episode one so it was no surprise when this episode made me cry. All the drama finally ends in the series and it doesn’t make it any easier when all the kids are saying bye to Menma, crying themselves and also read all their letters from Menma. I was just a completely overly crying mess at the end of this.

3. The scene in Angel Beats when Kanade and Otanashi are saying their final goodbyes.

Once again this was a series that had a lot of sad moments throughout but this scene definitely got me because Otanashi really wanted Kanade to stay. Its also when they both kind of reveal they have feelings for eachother. This was definitely one show where I was glad no one was home to see the crying blubbering mess I became.

4. The crying in Daddy’s arm scene in Clannad After Story.

This is the scene where Tomoyo finally meets his daughter Ushio after 5 long years and they go on a trip together. During the trip Tomoya starts to realize several things which causes him to feel better about his daughter and want to have a relationship with her. In the end Ushio and Tomoya start to cry and Ushio says that line that made me cry which was “Cause Sanae she told me the only times I can cry are when I’m in the bathroom…or when I’m in Daddy’s arms…”

Alright so those are 4 anime scenes that either made me really sad or made me cry. So what are yours? Comment them below and once again happy watching!

Anohana Review!

Published March 12, 2014 by Shay Taree

Well like I promised here is the anime review for today!

So the anime I’m reviewing is called Anohana. I had been wanting to watching this anime for awhile now because it looked interesting but I heard it was sad and I didn’t want to cry. But when I had a day off and wanted to watch a short anime Anohana (it’s 11 episodes) was what I decided to give a chance in watching. When I finished this series I was very happy that I gave it a try.

Anohana is about a group of kids now teenagers who have gone their separate ways after the death of one of their friends. Now years later Jinta also known as Jintan is able to see the ghost of Menma. Now Menma is aware that she is dead but she remembers that she had one last request. Now through out the series you see how the group starts to come back together but you also see how each of them have to face the feelings of what happened that day when Menma died and the feelings of what happened after.

Now this series wasn’t all sadness because it did have a few funny moments too, but the tears definitely did fall. I started crying after the first episode so that says something. This series also has romance as well with quite a few love triangles going on in the series with a few broken hearts happening as well.

The music in this show is also amazing! I absolutely fell in love with the ending song “Secret Base ~Kimi ga Kurera Mono. I have this song in my playlist and a piano version as well since this song was so good and definitely fit the entire feel of the show.

Now if you enjoyed shows like Angel Beats or Clannad/Clannad After Story then you will definitely enjoy Anohana. Just be sure to bring a few tissues with you as your watching it.

There is also a movie that acts as epilogue after the series which I haven’t watched yet but I heard it’s good so I plan to watch it soon.

So check out Anohana and thanks for reading my review!
