Hotarubi no mori e *spoiler alert*

To be honest this is a movie you can watch even if you know the ending The movie is so good  it wouldn’t ruin it . So I wont say don’t read this. In fact this might help not shatter your heart so much like this movie did the first time i watched it.

So Hotarubi No Mori E ( Into the forest of fireflies light) is about a little girl named Hotaru on  her way to her uncles house she gets lost in the woods and becomes tired from searching for a way out.Just when she thinks all hope is lost he appears a man in a mask  .He leads her out of the forest after telling her she can not touch him because he’ll disappear. The two spend every summer from that one on together and become best friends .But they begin to have more serious feeling for each other.

How can love between a human and a spirit survive?

This movie is amazing. Ive watched it more than eight times . Literally every time i watch i find myself sobbing.face literally pressed to the screen rewinding it and watching it all over again just so i can fangirl and cry some more. Im such a girl right ?

Things i love about this movie:

The innocence : That sounds dumb i know but really through out the movie all i can think about is both of their intentions all both of them want is to be around each to hug to hold hands. i find that so simple yet so cute ❤ ❤ .So touching!!

The evolution of hotaru: I loved watching Hotaru grow up watching as her feeling turn from childish wonder to a more mature romantic feeling .

Seeing how Hotaru and Gin Affect each other: Gin starts off mysterious never even taking off his mask but as their relationship develops gin becomes more open  he becomes happy. In the begining hotaru is lost and afraid of the forest but as her and gin spend time together there she realizes that the forest is full of beautiful things her favorite being gin

The music: The music always puts you in the feels but none like KanaKana Shigure composed and played by Makoto Yoshimori. This peice is like watching the entire movie but shortened to three minutes of cry your heart out piano and violin .

Ahh this piece… Thank you so much Makoto Yoshimori for writing beautiful music. My ears are grateful ❤

The thing about this anime is you know its not going to work out in the end .Some way some how you know these two will leave each other. You just dont expect it to be so suddenly. All Gin wanted was to hold Hotaru .All Hotaru wanted was to be held by Gin.Neither of them wanted to be apart,but they both knew that one day time would seperate them anyways .While Hotaru grew and matured Gin was exactly the same as the day they met.They were not of the same worlds and couldnt even touch each other.We all wanted some miracle granted though we didnt want this to end that way.However it was the right ending a melancholy one sad happy . God !!!! why does this movie make me so sad?

I loved how all of the spirit of the forest all warn gin to be careful yet were one hundred percent supportive of him wanting to hug Hotaru. In the end when they hug and he disappears they thank her as she sobs .They are happy that gin was happy

Here are some quotes from this movie

“It’s okay if you forget about me. A body that’s maintained by magic is very weak. If it touches a real human body, the spell will break and the body will disappear. It’s a fragile thing. How long can you-“-Gin

“Gin, I thought of you during winter. Even during autumn and spring. Gin, don’t forget about me.”-Hotaru
“Time might separate us some day. But, even still, until then, let’s stay together”-Hotaru

You see i think the reason why i felt this anime so much is that Gin didnt care anymore. He wanted to be with Hotaru forever but knew that it wasnt possible.So the next best thing would be to hug her he didnt care at what cost.When hotaru made the joke about glomping(a jump hug) him and he said do it i knew then that he was going to leave her. She knew it as well but her dream came true and so did his.

After gin “dies” hotaru is left with nothing but his mask as she clutches it to her chest his soul flies around her in the form of fireflies

“I probably won’t be able to look forward to summer for a long time. My chest will hurt. My tears will be overflowing. But this warmth in my hands and these summer memories will live on in my heart.” -Hotaru

“Hotaru. Thank you. We wanted to be with Gin forever, but… Gin wanted to touch a human. He finally got to be hugged by a human.” -youkai

Disreign Within The Void!!!

Hello again dear readers,Its been quite a while since I’ve posted anything .I haven’t felt very “inspired” over the last few months. That has changed thanks to me discovering more beautiful music and more beautiful artists. One of those being Disreign’s newest Song and music video Within the void.

As you should know I’ve been a fan of Yohio ( the singer in this group) since i first saw him in Seremedy ( If you don’t know this band look up No escape). When Yohio was in seremedy he was the guitarist and did back-up vocals i always heard his voice shining there.

Since those years ago Yohio’s voice has matured drastically  both in his clean and harsh vocals

 

So now on to Disreign-Within the void

This video was released  a week ago on the 29th of November.I didn’t get the chance to watch it until four days ago. Than i watched it like eight times in a row .I couldn’t help it everything about this video and song is so perfect.

I’ve  followed Disreign since they formed in 2015, and so far this is the most amazing song they composed. I am very excited to see what they’ll do next.

So things i love about this song:

The intro: The intro is very soft its starts off with Yohio singing but its slightly muffled than it clears up and you hear him and the music clearly. I love the woman standing around in the blank space.

The clothes: I love the shiny leather look in a visual kei video,and Yohios gloves just pop. I also admire that there were two different styles .Yohio in his white clothes for instance. I really love the red feathers in Yohios hair and his red and black lashes.  I always love the way Valentin looks as well him and his fancy mustache . Jenziih Kills it in this video as well he just look SO good i  love the black hair on him and he has horns . HORNS!!!!!! So cool. Lastly but most certainly not least Tias. His light blue hair  is so cool i love their look SO much in this video.

The scenery:The plain white background contrasts with the dark Gothic clothes and gives off an intense vibe.It draws your eyes to the main focus .The flickering orange  flames from the candles. Even the smoke Valentin breathes in.Now when Yohio is standing among the girls in the white he blends in. Its very visually gratifying

The feel of the song: I dont know what it was but when i first listened to this song  and watched this video i got so emotional . I couldn’t help it i just felt the music so much. I felt like it was part of me. Not to mention the beautiful video.The words which i only understand slightly are intense. i feel like this longing feeling when i listen to this song and Yohios acting is very good he really pulls off the sadness well.The part when he closes his eyes crushed me the first time i watched it ( more like every time). The song is just very emotional.

So that was my review on this song and video .I must say Disreign has outdone themselves. Im so happy to watch their video and support them . I thank them for their amazing music and videos. I cant wait to see more from them.Its not everyday i cry while watching a music video i love this song that much.

Tell me what you think of this song and video

 Lyrics:

Mayonaka ni kono koe o koroshite

Hitorikiri de shizuka ni inotteru

Imi o motome tsudzukete mo

Nanimo dekizu ni boku wa oboreru yo

Kodoku daite wake mo naku naite mo

Yoru o koete hoshizora miageteru

Mabushi sugiru kono ame ga kokoro nuresasete

Boku ni sotto tsubuyaita

Yume no naka de hibiita yasurakana koe wa

Tada hitotsu dake no kotoba de boku o okisaseta

Ah…

 

Honokana kage to yami o dakishimeta

Within the void I found inside of me

the pattern forms out of shapeless guilt

Amai anata no kuchibiru

Ah…

Imawashii boku no uso

 

Kegareta ame ni sakebi koe wa kikoenai

Watashi wa jibun wo ushinai kakeru kara

 

Forever alone

 

Sono me ni utsuru sugata ga mitomerarenai

I’ts been so long since I felt anything

My demons whisper into my veins

Masshirona karada ni sotto furete

Ah…

Mune no naka de sakenderu

 

Kegareta ame ni tsutsumareta ano sugata o

Kono te de dakishimete

Jibun o kowashitai

 

Take me away

 

Wasuretai

Ano koro no kotoba o

Kodoku o daite ima wa

Me o tojita mama de
