Remember This Manga for Eternity

“Remember…me…forever.”

If there was a first chapter that just leaves you speechless. To Your Eternity takes the cake.

I’ve been following this manga since the genius behind A Silent Voice, Yoshitoki Oima, is doing her version of a fantasy manga. To Your Eternity is a lot more intense than A Silent Voice because it delves into a taboo topic that’s more taboo than mental health discussion – death.

The first chapter covers a boy’s journey to meet his tribe who left him behind in a snow-barren land. He travels with a mysterious wolf named Joann, who is more than meets the eye. Along the way, the boy starts to doubt himself as he finds subtle hints that he won’t find his fellow tribesmen. Yet he continues with optimism. After suffering both a heavy wound with no medical assistance in sight and learning that his tribe is gone, the boy slowly accepts the fact that he’s going to die and Joann shows his true nature – an immortal being that absorbs the stimuli around it in order to evolve and grow. It takes on the boy’s appearance and becomes known as Fushi as the series begins to cover its first grand adventure as a human being.

It sometimes feel like people are trying to cheat or control death, one way or another. We don’t have honest conversations about it despite it being a natural process of life. The boy in the 1st chapter kept telling himself that he’ll find a community full of good people and food at the end. He knew that life was going to be difficult and it didn’t end well at all. The boy died without friends and family around him.

There’s a lot more death to follow in the series, but I feel the focus of To …continue reading

On this episode, Pitohui introduces the Squad Jam tournament to LLENN. Later, LLENN meets her partner.

Whoa, they revealed on how Squad Jam got started because of Kirito’s and Sinon’s presence. I find that to be pretty cool for a spin-off. Also, it was nice to see how LLENN and her partner met up. Now will there be more connections to Kirito or will he ever make an appearance? I can’t wait to find out. Overall, nice origin continuation.

Conclusion: Nice origin continuation. …continue reading

Almost a Loss for Words (The Ancient Magus Bride)

Stella and Ethan, Ancient Magus Bride Episode 17

We’ve all had our moments where we say things that we don’t mean. Stress and frustration cause us to lash out at our friends and family. Most of the time, nothing serious happens. However, as a certain story in The Ancient Magus Bride goes, the words we choose to say do have consequences that we can’t foresee.

This particular story in The Ancient Magus Bride happens in Volume 6 of the manga (Episode 17 in the anime). On Christmas, main character Chise Hatori decides to walk around town. She runs into a girl named Stella Barklem, who is trying to search for her younger brother, Ethan. Her parents were following Stella and proclaim that Stella’s an only child. The parents’ behavior mystifies Chise and she decides to investigate with the help of her partner, Elias Ainsworth. Chise, Elias, and Stella follow a trail that leads to an encounter with the mysterious Ashen Eye. It has Ethan in its grasp and taunts Stella that she was the one who abandoned him. Ashen Eye proceeds to test Chise in a game of finding Ethan and Elias before sunset or else the former would be taken away forever. Chise wins and reunites Stella and Ethan. However, the Ashen Eye provides some advice that’s relevant to anyone who’s said things that were never meant to be said.

The theme behind Stella’s search for Ethan revolves around an argument she had with him. Both were outside in the snow near their house and Stella told Ethan to dress warmly or else he would get sick. Ethan refused and both lashed out at each other. Ethan told Stella that he didn’t want a sister like her and to leave him alone; Stella told Ethan to run around in the cold for all she cared …continue reading
