“No,” Juvia calmly told him while taking his arms away from her. “Gray-san doesn’t know himself. He’s lying to Juvia, lying to himself.” She turned around so that she could face Gray again, and place her right hand over where her heart is. “There’s a hole right here, and even Gray-san cannot fill that hole in her heart now.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

            A few days passed by, but no new improvements between the two mages. Juvia, as indifferent as she could be, still did not believe a word Gray said. Every day, Gray would tell her that he loves her. Every day, Juvia would ignore that statement.  As the days dragged on with Gray’s constant confrontations, her emptiness grew more and more. It seemed like her despair slowly turned into anger and hatred. The more Gray bugs her, the angrier she becomes.

Hi, so as many of Fairy Tail fans have already known, today new chapter release sent a major shockwave to everyone.

Previously:  

“Oi!” I tried to shake Juvia awake, but she was too much in the slumber to wake up. “What should I do?”

 ~~~~~~~~~~

NORMAL’S P.O.V.:

Juvia woke up on a bright morning, staring right above her. ”A ceiling?” She raised her upper body up, realizing that she was initially lying in a soft blue bed with a small damp cloth on her forehead. ”Where is Juvia? What happened?” Being all lost and confused, she got out of bed and looked to the left of the room. “Gray-sama!?!?” She yelped before remembering to cover her mouth as the sight she saw was quite surprising. Gray was still sleeping quite uncomfortably on a small couch at one side of the room.  Looking left and right, trying to figure out what happened; Juvia had her moment of panic. Juvia made her way toward the couch quietly and stood in front of Gray as she leaned down to his eye level. Looking at his sleeping face made, Juvia forgot all the pain from the other day for a while. She kept looking quietly for a few second, whispering softly, “Gray-sama looks really cute sleeping like this.” Then she remembered something.

“Gray-san,” Juvia tried to tug on Gray’s shirt. Yes, miraculously, Gray still had his shirt on despite his stripping habit. “Gray-san, wake up.”

“Uh, one moment,” Gray mumbled in his sleepy.

“Gray-san!” Juvia raised her voice a bit.

“Huh…. huh!? Juvia!? Ackk.” Gray finally seemed to grasp onto what just happened before he got startled and fell off the couch. “Yo, Juvia,” greeted Gray sheepishly.

“Umm, ohayo,” Juvia said coldly and briefly.

“Ummm, about last night… You were drunk and everyone already left, so I had to bring you here,” Gray tried to explain not wanting Juvia to think he had bad intention or something.

“Gray-san shouldn’t have bothered with her,” yet again, Juvia spoke with briefness and hoarseness.

“Ah, no, no. Juvia, I wouldn’t mind,” Gray scratched his head as he looked at Juvia sheepishly, with a tint of red on his cheeks. “Ah,”  Remembering something, Gray put the back of his hand on Juvia’s forehead before flipping into his palm with his eyes so focused on her as if trying to feel her temperature. “You seemed okay now. You had a pretty bad fever there.”

“Oh really? Juvia did?” Juvia sounded a bit taken back. “Arigatou, Gray-san. For tending her fever. Juvia must get going now.” Juvia bow her head, bidding her farewell and turned toward the door.  As she walked away from Gray, Gray rushed over and caught her wrist in his hands with wide, surprised eyes as if he just did it on impulse and had no idea what he just did. Equally surprised, Juvia turned to face Gray, and both were looking into each other’s eyes in silence. Gray had this surprised hint in his eyes, which later turned to seriousness, while Juvia’s eyes were unreadable, almost empty.

”Eumm.. Juvia, about yesterday, I,” Gray started the conversation, but Juvia cut him off again.

”Juvia doesn’t want to talk about ‘That’ now, ” she gave Gray a stern look, knowing pretty well what he was going about.

”Juvia, just listen to me first,” Gray pleaded.  ‘Why don’t you believe me?”

With a sigh, Juvia replied, ”There was nothing to believe in in the first place.” She yanked her wrist out of Gray’s grasp and walked out the door.

As Juvia was heading to the guild, Gray followed behind her. Sensing his presence, Juvia fasten her walking pace, while Gray also started walking faster. “What does Gray-san want from Juvia!?” Juvia finally snapped.

Gray stopped in his steps, taken aback from Juvia’s sudden outburst. “Your  trust.”

“Eh?” Juvia was a bit surprised before her expression hardened, and she studied Gray’s for a while before sighing again. Taking a quick breath, she mumbled, “never mind. Forget she asked.”

“Juvia!’ Gray called after her when she started walking again. Seeing that she didn’t bother to stop, he followed. “Just listen.” Still, Juvia didn’t. “Why don’t you believe me?” And yet again, Juvia kept walking. “I’m sorry I never took the time to consider your feeling. I’m sorry I knew what you felt for me, but never made a clear resolve. Little did I do that I started to fall for you. And then Lyon came, and made me realized how much you mean to me and that I don’t want you to get snatched away by him or anyone else.”

Juvia stopped in her track and paused there for a few seconds. Lyon again.  It’s always him. Gray-sama, that’s not love; that’s rivalry. She took a long and deep breath before turning around to face Gray. “Juvia isn’t some kind of toy.” Her eyes, if there were anything that Gray was afraid of, it’s Juvia’s eyes that time. The emptiness inside, not even a hint of pain nor any kind of emotions. Nothing, just calm blank eyes looking at him. “Gray-san can stop his play now; Juvia is really tired and sick of all of these.” She turned her back on him and started to walk forward again. Suddenly, she could feel an impact. Gray ran up to her and hugged her from behind her back.

“Juvia, stop it. Stop acting so tough when you’re not,” Gray pleaded with her while still holding her in his embrace. “I don’t understand why you don’t believe me. I really don’t.” His voice shook and trembled a bit. With his arms in front of Juvia, he held her from the back.

“No,” Juvia calmly told him while taking his arms away from her. “Gray-san doesn’t know himself. He’s lying to Juvia, lying to himself.” She turned around so that she could face Gray again, and place her right hand over where her heart is. “There’s a hole right here, and even Gray-san cannot fill that hole in her heart now.”

Anime: Conflicting Perspectives and Outcomes

Okay.. So I wrote this for my World Literature class recently, and I really, really like the topic I’m writing about (obviously cuz it’s about anime..lolz). Anime are tend to be overlooked by so many people and had accumulated many false assumptions. This research paper was written to raise awareness that anime has so much more to offer to people, more than most people give it credit for.

P.S.: Hi, Mrs. Darr, if you somehow stumbled across this post online and you still remember that it’s mine, which I doubt you would, please keep in mind that I did not copy it off the internet and that I really wrote this myself. Continue reading

Deltora Quest

A requested anime.. >.< Here you go~~ :3

Links will be provided at the bottom of the post

 

Deltora-Quest-Episode-44-English-Dubbed

I’ve seen this before on TV, but there is one thing I didn’t know. It’s a Japanese anime that came from a book written by an Australian writer.. It’s something about finding the 7 seven stones so that they could save the kingdom.

Title: Deltora Quest

Genre: Comedy, Adventure, Friendship, Action

Episode: 65

Summary: 

DeltoraQuest

The Shadow Lord, an evil sorcerer and The Lord of Shadows which comes from The Shadowlands, has taken over Deltora by destroying a magical object known as The Belt of Deltora, which is Deltora’s only protection against him. Throughout the course of the anime, Lief, Barda and Jasmine travel around the land of Deltora to return the seven gem of the initials of which combine to form DELTORA, hence the name Deltora Quest, to the belt and save the land. Their first destination is the Forests of Silence.

After destroying the guardian Gorl, they find the Topaz and continue to the Lake of Tears. Along the way, they meet Manus and with his help defeat Jin and Jod, two of the sorceress Thaegan’s thirteen children. Eventually, they fight with Thaegan and retrieve the Ruby. Thaegan is defeated when Jasmine’s raven, Kree, creates a cut in her finger, causing her to lose blood. Since Thaegan is a witch, she instantly dies as a result of it.

The trio are then trapped by Thaegan’s remaining eleven children, but manage to fool them and run away. Then, they visit Tom’s mysterious shop and meet a scar-faced man, Doom. Later on they manage to reach the City of Rats. There Lief, Barda and Jasmine get the Opal and then enter the deadly Rithmere Championships. Jasmine wins, and then they are subsequently captured. With the help of the mysterious Doom, they manage to escape and reach the Shifting Sands, where they obtain the Lapis Lazuli. Thaegan and her eleven children are reborn from Flanwass’s bags, but Lief, Barda and Jasmine manage to defeat them again.

They travel to Dread Mountain, passing through Gellick with the help of the Kins. They go on the River Queen, but end up finding out that a few of the passengers were Ols. To avoid putting the other passengers in danger, the trio are dropped off nearby. They go into the Maze of the Beast and are able to find the Amethyst, barely escaping the slug-like Glus. Thaegan returns and is defeated with twelve of her children, Ichabod injured. They meet Oacus and help him escape. They rescue Dain and find Tora. They then journey to the Valley of the Lost and defeat the guardian. However, Neridah, who stole the diamond, was captured by Oacus who they defeated. After a series of epic battles on the way to Del and in Deltora, the Shadow Lord is finally defeated and destroyed.  (Wikipedia)

Sukitte Ii Na Yo (Say “I Love You”)

Okay… This is one of the recent anime that came out. In fact, this anime season, I only watched three series, Sword Art, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, and this one. School has been killing me each day, those monster teachers.. T-T Alright, I’m going off topic again.. =.= Back to Sukitte Ii Na Yo, I actually downloaded the manga version ages ago, but didn’t have time to read it. I totally forgot I downloaded the manga until I saw the anime coming out. I was like, “the title sounds familiar.. hmmm.. do I have the manga?” So I went back to check my files in my hard drive, and it was there! >.< Okay, enough with my ramblings. Time for the real review of the anime.

Download links will be provided at the bottom of the post

Sukitte-Ii-Na-Yo-sukitte-iinayo-32614052-500-493

So this anime evolves around a lonesome girl, Mei, who doesn’t have any friends. In fact, she rather prefers to be alone because  when she was young, she felt betrayed by her friends. They only befriended when they want something from her, and they all ditched her when they don’t need her anymore. Up until her high school year, she was alone. People often pick on her at school, but she just brushed  them off and didn’t care much. One day, the guy’s friend tried to lift up her skirt while she was walking the stair. She suddenly turned around and did a hound-kick at Yamato instead of the friend. Since then, mysteriously enough, Yamato took an interest toward her. He approached her and tried to be her friend. He gave her his phone number so that she could call him. By the way, she only has 2 contacts in her phones, her house and her part-time job. One day, someone stalked her from her work place. She tried calling home, but no one pick up. So she only had Yamato left. He came rushing to her while she was waiting at a shop with the stalker outside the store. Yamato came and walked her out, and then he suddenly kissed her to scare off the stalker. Dramatic enough, the stalker left. Mei became tomato faced, causing Yamato to realize that he just stole her first kiss.

After that stalker incident, they slowly became friends. Times went on, I’m not gonna say much anymore since I’ve pretty much spoiled the plot for you already… =.= One day, in a dark corner of a building (ooohh.. sounds fishy..lolz), Yamato asked Mei whether or not she likes him. Mei said that she doesn’t know, but her heart beats fast every time she thinks about him (don’t quote me on this since I don’t really remember what she said, though I think that was what she said..). He then kissed her; she got upset saying that not every girl likes to be kissed without any feeling. That is because Yamato has a reputation of having kissed every cute girls in the school. One reason I didn’t like his character much. =.= Other girls said that kissing is almost like his way of greeting. And then this was what happened.. in the picture below..:

vlcsnap-2013-01-03-09h10m11s59 - Copy copy

As you can see, I’ve put both version of this scene together (manga and anime), and I compared the words he said in both versions.

MANGA:
Yamto – *kiss* “That was a kiss instead of saying hello..” *kiss* “That was a kiss to a person who I think is cute..” *kiss* “That was a to a person who I want to know better…” *kiss* “That was a kiss with feelings I have for the person in front of me..”

ANIME:

Yamato: – *kiss* “This kiss is a greeting…” *kiss* “This one’s because you’re cute..” *kiss* “This one’s because I care about you..” *kiss* “And this kiss is for you.”

For me, I like the manga version more.. >.< After that, they started going out, and the story goes on with their relationship and their conflicts as a couple.

Sukitte-Ii-Na-Yo-sukitte-iinayo-32614051-500-597

Yamato is nice and all, but I have one problem with him, his hair =.=. Why in the world did he leave half of hair as bang and the other half shove behind his ear? o.O Like seriously, just pick one, shove it or bang. =.= Because this hair looks really weird. Nah, actually, I would love it if he leave them all as bang. Shoving behind your ears is so old fashion now (at least in anime standard..lolz).

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

It’s already 11:58 PM, so I thought I could post one more anime recommendation before going off to bed.. ^o^

Well, the guy, Yoshida Haru, can be an idiot at times… He’s cute and innocent though people would often mistake him as a delinquent due to is cold stares.

Download links will be provided at the end of the post ^o^

480545_144904472329299_1741481975_n“I’m being robbed,” said the guy who gave a whole gang nosebleed and is strangling the poor guy half to death… yup,
he’s just this cute n innocent…>.<

So, in this romance comedy, Haru is somewhat a delinquent because he skipped school a lot. What surprised me was he scored 1st place every time, and even beat the girl,  who never got lower than first place back in her middle school, without trying. All those times that he skipped during middle school was spent on studying high school stuff at home. So yeah, he claimed that Shizuku (the girl) is his friend because she brought him lessons when he didn’t go to school. Shizuku, who only focuses on studies, was somewhat annoyed at first. She became his first real friend, unlike those guys before who only befriended him to gain benefits. Ever since the beginning, Haru claimed that he loves  Mitsutani Shizuku because his heart went “doki doki” when she hugged him to sooth him. One funny thing was when Shizuku asked him if it was a friendly love, he immediately responded with, “No, I love you. In a sexual way.” lolz I literally almost fell off my chair; Haru is too innocent and his talks really crack me up.

vlcsnap-2012-12-28-21h19m46s60Truth be told, the reason I was attracted to this anime in the first place is this. lolz  There was a kiss by the end of the first episode. >.<

Title: Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun; The Monster Beside Me; My Little Monster

Genre: Romance, Comedy, Friendship,

Episodes: 13

vlcsnap-2012-12-30-01h00m45s171

Synopsis: 

Mizutani Shizuku’s only one goal in life, to secure a lucrative career, and to that end she dedicates her life to studying to get good grades.  Bookworm Mizutani Shizuku has few interests besides her grade and future career. Requested by her teacher, Shizuku brought handouts to  Yoshida Haru, a boy who should have been seated next to her but was suspended due to injuring another student in a fight on the first day of school. Because of the favor, Haru now considers Shizuku a friend, and she also learns that Haru is in fact a very nice, gentle guy with  no social skills and who is prone to violence at the drop of a hat. Mizutani has to decide if she will let Yoshida into her life to be friends, or perhaps more than friends.

vlcsnap-2012-12-28-22h12m12s197

Since the beginning, Haru has been sincere about his love for Shizuku, saying that he loves and stuff. One thing I didn’t understand was when Shizuku said that she loves him, he told her that his love is different from her love. So then, she decided to move on and focus only on studies again right when Haru started to realize that he loves her “in a romantic way”. He said that he will change her mind and make her love him again. Little by little, they changed each other’s world.

vlcsnap-2012-12-29-23h50m18s133One of Haru’s many attempt to get her to love him again..lolz While Shizuku was studying in the library, he came to the window, and told her that he loves her. “Shizuku, suki-daiyo..”, which resulted in as you can see in this picture. Shizuku got embarrassed, and told him to get lost (yup, definitely a tsundere). Haru then (retardedly, may I add =.=) stood on the window seal and told her to give in.
