Hi there! This is TomaKuchiki, but I also go by the name Mina. I keep seeing all these great blogs, but do they ever offer advice to us anime fans?


This is a blog about me, my life, and about the lives of many other anime loving people. This also a blog that can be used for advice for dealing with everything from Anime Conventions to High school. My wish is to help whoever needs help!!!

This is also my venting space, a place for me express myself, and to tell of my beat, my tune, my song, and my friends.

(P.S. Yes I shall probably end most posts with junk like that!! And maybe a quote!

Apologize for what?

This week, I think I only need to post a song, one that every one I think should be shown to the world, and describes my world and one of my beats.

1000 Words
I know that you're hiding things
Using gentle words to shelter me
Your words were like a dream
But dreams could never fool me
Not that easily

I acted so distant then
Didn't say goodbye before you left
But I was listening:
You'll fight your battles far from me...
Far too easily

"Save your tears 'cause I'll come back."
I could hear that you whispered as you walked through that door
But still I swore
To hide the pain.
When I turned back the pages:
Shouting might have been the answer...
What if I'd cried my eyes out, and begged you not to depart?
But now I'm not afraid
To say what's in my heart

'Cause a thousand words
Call out through the ages
They'll fly to you
Even though I can't see, I know they're reaching you
Suspended on silver wings

Oh, a thousand words
One thousand embraces
Will cradle you
Making all of your weary days seem far away
They'll hold you forever

Oh, a thousand words
Have never been spoken
They'll fly to you
They'll carry you home, and back into my arms
Suspended on silver wings

And a thousand words
Call out through the ages
They'll cradle you
Turning all of the lonely years to only days
They'll hold you forever

A thousand words...

This song hits home for me. So does Final Fantasy X and X-2.
These games show something that everyone is familiar with. Loss, Sadness, Love, and, at times, how to over come sorrow.
Take Final Fantasy 7;
It takes me back to when I lost my friend to suicide. Yes, I was a miniture version of Emo Cloud. I even had short hair at the time and wore lots of black, not my usual peppy colors. I wanted to make amends and apoligize for not being able to save him. Then, I realized I had people ceering for me on the sidelines, telling me to finish the race. I didn't realize they were there, only when they pointed out to me did I see.

Today, I am still numbed by his death, but it only hits me when it's near that time. But by then, my friends support me the whole way.

By the way, if there is smething somebody would like posted here, please tell me! I'm starting to get desperate for ideas!!!

Steal My Heart!!

First, let me just say THANK YOU!!!!! 89 views on this world!!!! I know it's not much, but it's a start of some thing new!!!!

This weekend I started reading Pandore Hearts, and let me say, it is awseome. Just the art is enough to suck you in!
If you don't know about it, here is a quick synopsys.

Oz Vessalius, heir to the Vessalius dukedom, has just turned fifteen. His life is rich and carefree, darkened only by the constant absence of his father. At his coming-of-age ceremony, however, everything changes. For no reason that he can discern, Oz is cast into the prison known as the "Abyss", only to be saved by a "Chain" known as Alice, the Bloodstained Black Rabbit, B-Rabbit for short. The mystery there begins as Oz unravels the mystery behind Alice, the Abyss and the strange organization known as Pandora. The series features heavy references to Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and can be considered fantasy and mystery.

And there is also a theme to it. What if our world was similar? What if people started to disapear amd then come back 10 or 20 years later, unchanged but attached to a "Chain"?

Would you accept those people with open arms, or turn them down and call them freaks?

Many people would sy accept them, but I know too many a person that would call a person a "freak" in a drop of a hat! When you see those popular girls tell a reporter or a teacher that "Oh, I'll hang out with them" or "I just didn't know that what we said would lead to scuicide", they really caused the injury.

I know this because i know too many victims of hazing, bulllying, or just plain ignoring!!! This can lead teenagers down the path of drugs, alchohol, dropping out, or scuicide!!!!

Please! This is my plea to all people, normal or not, to be kinder to all people who look like they need a hand, look alone, or need help, instead of laughing at them behind their back, or being friendly only to be mean again.

Who Knew Shakespeare Would Make An Awesome Anime?!

Romeo × Juliet
Synopsis: “Once upon a time, in The Sky Continent known as New Verona where the all-powerful ability to hover in the distant sky breathes life and prosperity upon the people. However, foolish passions will someday transcend eternity. Now let me introduce to you the tragic story of innocent pure love tormented by fate in the midst of chaos, Romeo and Juliet.”

The Highlights
Original Play: More powerful and tragic than Gonzo can ever recreate
Lena Park: Josh Groban would be so proud of her stellar cover version
Adaptation: From complex sorrowful famous novel to warm subtle animation
Animation: Fluid and sublime amidst surreal new world
William Shakespeare: … in the show too!?

Apart from Hamlet, Macbeth and King Lear, the original play written by English playwright William Shakespeare is perhaps one of the most popular piece of literary work in history. Its fame can be credited for setting the benchmark for an all-time tragic romance between two immortal characters, Romeo and Juliet. This benchmark includes the terms ’star-crossed lovers’, ‘love at first sight’ and the romance that should have but never was. Hundreds of adaptations have been made based on the play, therefore making it utterly difficult for a piece of adaptation to stand out from the rest. Gonzo has attempted to do so in the form of their high-budgeted Romeo × Juliet.

The Nihon Review

I love this anime. It is so heart-wrenching but bueatiful. It gives Romeo and Juliet a whole new meaning. It made me cry and and happy at the same time. You should definantly watch it!!!

In this weeks news:
Absolutly Diddly Squat!!!
AKA Nothing new!!!! Except for school....

Oh well, That's all for now! Oh, and you can watch this anime here. http://www4.funimation.com/video/?page=show&b=203

Leavin' on a Jet Plane

All my bags are packed I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin' it's early morn
The taxi's waitin' he's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

There's so many times I've let you down
So many times I've played around
I tell you now, they don't mean a thing
Every place I go, I'll think of you
Every song I sing, I'll sing for you
When I come back, I'll bring your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time let me kiss you
Close your eyes I'll be on my way
Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave alone
About the times, I won't have to say

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leaving' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh baby, I hate to go

Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go.

Yup. Today I am leaving my siblings to go back to Florida. I am glad to go home, but....
Well, yeah, parting with them is always the hardest... And always will be.
