Anyway, yes, it has been about 3 years since I've seen this poor excuse of a blog. I'll be 16 in just under 2 weeks (unfortunately). A lot has happened in 3 years. I've gotten over my obsession with Avril Lavigne, especially after her Hello Kitty video, and I don't have a stupid crush on Lucas Cruikshank especially now that he's come out. Good on him by the way.
These days I'm a pasty, unsocial slob. Or at least I like to think I am. I have friends who I never see outside of school, a part time job at mcdonalds and a stupid obsession with anime.
On the topic of anime, I think I've finally found my place in this world as an otaku, and it's about time too. It all started with a little slice of life anime by the name of Clannad. Clannad was originally a visual novel created by Key, a studio who's famous for other fantastic visual novels (which I've never played) such as Air, Kanon, Rewrite and a few others. It was adapted to an anime by Kyoto Animation, an animation studio who are famous for creating such masterpieces as Full Metal Panic, Inuyasha and of course, the Key and Kyoto Animation holy trinity consisting of Air, Kanon 2006 and Clannad.
The holy trinity have become some of my favorite animes ever, Clannad standing at the summit of my top 10 favorite anime list. These three special animes, while being marginally different in some aspects are also very similar with each anime sharing art styles, characters with great amounts of moe and scenes which make you want to curl up into a ball on your bed with a mountain of chocolate and a cute guy stroking your hair telling you that it's all going to be okay, even when it's not.
I'm being serious, Kanon and Air may have made me tear up on some occasions but Clannad is the only anime out there which has made me openly bawl my eyes out. It's one of the best, if not THE best romance out there and I don't think that anybody would be able to find another romance out there which could top it.
