And here goes the second day of the challenge *grins widely*
Erm… for those who know me this really won’t come as a surprise: my favourite anime so far is 空の境界 (Boundary of Emptiness).
I have already written up a critique for it, so I won’t reiterate what I’d said there. I can say though, that I’ll never forget how I felt the first time I’ve watched it. I had already seen Elfen Lied, Death Note, and many other serious anime – I’m talking about genres such as psychological, drama, crime, horror/thriller. But this – THIS – was for me one of a kind!!! It was the first anime which made me feel like there are some really good ‘things’ out there – and this was one of the very few unique, precious, brilliant, and last but by no means least, beautiful such ‘things’.
I remember like it was yesterday (I think the first time I’ve watched it was about 4-5 years ago) that I watched it in one night and I was so happy at the end of the seven films!!! (I said seven because the Epilogue and Mirai Fukuin/Extra Chorus were not out yet). It was this anime which made me fall in love with Yuki Kajiura-sama and Kalafina. It was this anime which made me feel like I was so small a being; like there were so many aspects of mines that I could, and actually am able to, change; like I ought to do what I want when I feel it’s the right time and don’t hesitate or regret it. It was this anime which made me wish to find for myself someone like Kokutou is to Shiki. I really have no other words to describe what this anime means to me so I’ll just stop here.
Hope you’ve enjoyed reading so far!
