Shugo Chara!

Hello, everyone!

I’m sorry for not posting for a while, so, here’s a long treat for you all to enjoy!  This week’s topic?  It’s Shugo Chara!

Shugo Chara is anime series based off of the manga revolving around pre-teen Amu Hinamori.  She’s a transfer to Seiyo Academy… and people think of her as “cool and spicy”. She has short, pink hair, often accessorized with a pink cross clip or two.  Her mother’s fashion sense also adds to this “cool and spicy” persona, for she has a punk-like fashion style.  But on the inside – she’s really just a shy, normal girl!  Well, she isn’t all that normal…

At her school, to others, she apparently is unapproachable… for an amount of time, that is, so, she doesn’t have any friends.  All that is changed when she meets the Guardians, a group of energetic students from Seiyo Academy.  This group is formed to help maintain the good of the school.  Their tasks include surveying, watering the flower beds, and filling out paperwork of sorts.  These joyous people become Amu’s friends, and Amu becomes more open.  The people of this group are:

  • Tadase Hotori: King’s Chair – Guardian Character: Kiseki
  • Rima Mashiro: Queen’s Chair – Guardian Character: Kusukusu
  • Nagihiko Fujisaki: Jack’s Chair – Guardian Character: Rhythm
  • Yaya Yuiki: Ace’s Chair – Guardian Character: Pepe

Although she refuses at first, Amu becomes a member as well:

  • Amu Hinamori: Joker’s Chair – Guardian Characters: Ran, Miki, Su, and later, Dia

Former members:

  • Nadeshiko Fujisaki: Queen’s Chair – Guardian Character: Temari
  • Kuukai Souma: Jack’s Chair – Guardian Character: Daichi
  • Kairi Sanjo: Jack’s Chair – Guardian Character: Musashi

So, now you know some more about the Guardians, are you wondering, “What are Guardian Characters?”?  The answer is that these Guardian Characters are their would-be selves.  Don’t get these little guys mixed up with the Guardians.  Guardian Characters hatch from hearts’ eggs, an egg of a person, which also holds children’s dreams.  The birth of these tiny fairies is when a strong emotion causes their heart’s egg to become the egg of a Guardian Character, which, obviously, hatches at one point.  These Characters assist their Character Bearer in reaching their dreams.  Usually, people have one GC (Guardian Character), but, in some cases, more.  For instance, people with two GCs are Utau Hoshina and Nagihiko/Nadeshiko Fujisaki.  Amu has a special case, for she has four GCs.

GCs can give their owner extended abilities in Character Changes or Character Transformations.  Character Changes only give their bearer limited powers, and wear off after a matter of time.  During a Character Change, the owner will have some indication that they have Character Changed.  In Character Transformation, the GC goes within the person they will transform with and makes the owner have much stronger abilities.  GCs can Character Transform with whomever they want to Transform with, but, if not with their own bearer, it will use a lot of the energy of the human being transformed with.

I know Guardian is spelled incorrectly. Credit for this picture goes to original owner.

That’s all for this week!  I hope you come to read again!

K-Pop!

Hi readers!  Today I’d like to talk to you about… K-Pop! I know some of you might despise this genre of music, but I won’t force you to like it. Now, when you hear the word K-Pop, most of you will be thinking of Gangnam Style, the hit song that came out in the summer of 2012, but, today I’ll dig in beneath the surface of the vast world of K-Pop. In K-Pop, there is much more than that horse-riding dance or lyrics that you comprehend as “Someone mushy kiss the dolly noon girl!”(Gee reference.) To be honest, I think the meanings of songs aren’t half bad. Check out this song verse translation.

“At some point, we have voluntarily trapped ourselves in a smart prison
We base our personalities from a digital world made of 0s and 1s
There’s no life, emotion or warmth but just garbage language, a desolately rolling meadow
Loneliness adds as the days go by
We have to be humans because we get scars”

I think these lyrics are very true compared to the life we live in today. Now, to talk about the dances. Dances are not shifting your legs to the beat and shaking crossed, fisted hands as you step. Dances are usually much more complicated than that.  I recommend you see LA chA TA by f(x). Well, that’s it for today with K-Pop!  Don’t forget to leave a comment or a suggestion below.

Eragon

Hi readers! Today I’d like to talk to you about Eragon, one of the most amazing book series that I know.

Eragon is the story of a small farmer boy who grew to be one of the most important people in the society of his country. This happens all when he finds a mysterious, gleaming, sapphire stone. The stone happens to be a dragon egg! From the stone hatches a dragon, the one thing that gave him his authority. The book series are composed mainly of his endeavors and adventures from his life as a new, blooming Dragon Rider. I find this book series quite fascinating. The story has a complex plot, and I not only like it, but love it. This book series has me hooked! I was reading it every second I got. I have read the first two books in the series. I highly recommend this series as a great, enjoyable read.

My Little Pony!

A blurb for today will be… MLP (My Little Pony)! I know most of you readers are thinking, “What? My Little Pony? Pfft. That’s for little girls!”, but, to me, it’s extremely interesting! Most of my interest is in the logic they use. I really like to try to figure out certain things, like how magical, sparkling rainbows drain villains of their power or how a pony’s hoof can hold the handle of a cup. Most often, I will question their coat color and their hair… It just doesn’t seem normal to me. Anyways, if any of you viewers DO know somethings about MLP OR are a fan of it, please post a reply or comment telling me about what you dislike or like about MLP. I’ll see you again, viewers!

Pokémon Anime

The Pokemon anime is the ONLY Pokemon related subject that I am able to fully follow up on… and I can’t wait until they mention Ash’s birthday.  Is he Peter Pan or something?  Or is he a Greek god disguised as a regular kid?  Also, when will the Kalos region anime finally start?  Will they visit Lavender Town in Kanto?  I want the gang to visit Lavender Town the most.  XD
