Remembering Isshi of kagrra(神樂) with poetry by me.

The frozen pond

A beautiful and fragrant pond has frozen over in its most beautiful state

All of the life all of the sacredness still remains sealed within

Pink sakura petals decorate the frozen water

Koi fish are stuck swimming in calm circles

I cant help but feel sad, yet i smile as i walk past

remembering dipping my feet into its coolness.

Its beauty still lives on , like a jewel placed on display in a busy museum.

I will never forget the fragrance.

I shall always remember the way my heart would sing upon visiting this pond.

The way i was reborn with the scent of the lotus.

This pond though frozen in time has a sacred place within my heart.

 

this poem was written for a very special person. A person whom ive never met yet who has changed my life with beautiful music and lyrics to calm my heart. This poem was written for kagrra’s Isshi and just kagrra in general, for once again sparking in me almost eight years ago a new interest that has followed me into my adulthood. The day Isshi passed into memory is coming soon and he and kagrra has been in my mind and in my heart a lot more than usual as of lately. i wanted to create something to represent the gratefulness i feel inside due to kagrra’s music. and i found it impossible for me to draw isshi as  i got way to emotional. Sometimes words are the only thing yo have so i wrote this poem The Frozen  Pond to the kagrra song Rin which means frozen.

Rest in peace my beautiful pond frozen in time Isshi December 7 1978- July 18 2011

you are forever frozen in the hearts of you fans we will never forget you ❤

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?

Gin takes off his mask after Hotaru ask him to show his face more

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

so yeah that was my blog on hotarubi no mori e i hope you enjoyed and didnt cry as much as i did.

Stay kei/Otaku

Ps: Thank you Yuki Midorikawa for writing an drawing such an amazing Manga ❤

D-Der konig der Dunkelheit SONG REVIEW !!!!!!! <3

YES ! im so happy to be doing a review on this AMAZING song! I love everything about this video ,except that it wasn’t longer. I actually found the band D on accident when i searched up the letter d instead of the band die/may . I did not expect to find such a great band ,and i instantly fell in love with Asagi’s voice. Its operatic and harsh he has an amazing vocal range.

Der konig der dunkelheit is a song  by the band D first released in 2011 it is sung in German and in Japanese and has a very  hardcore and medieval sort of sound . The video is like a story. Der konig der dunkelheit roughly translates to the king of darkness, However some of the German in the song is a little wrong. The song n both its original Japanese/German and translated to English has a poetic feel.

Watch the amazing video:

 

Im sorry guys this is going to be a long review this song and video is just too good to keep it short.Bear with me ill try to make this enjoyable

My synopsis of the lyrics: i feel like the reason the lyrics were sung in both japaese and german was to make it more mysterious and to reach different audience .I feel  like the lyrics are also a story .

I will leave my throne behind to go and fight
As a sign of love for my people, I will not retreat
The emperor of darkness, my own body will be my shield

Ist denn die Sonne nicht ubrig? (because the sun no longer remains?)
In exchange for a distant death
Die Mond und der Sternhimmel  (under the moon and the starry sky)
I shine out
Da sagt der Konig Ich brauche euch (the king says i need you)
Take my blood and live
Und kusse die Rose (and kiss the rose)
This is the beginning of the night of awakening

The potion of eternal life burns my throat like sand
Setting the black beasts upon me

With my kingdom crumbling before my eyes
There is just one thing I must do now
So the royal bloodline does not die out

Warnen  (warning)
No one can harm me
zielen  (aim)
There is no hesitation in my attack
Schneid (cut)
Let the blood that flows to my heart
Be a crimson rose that never loses its pride

This cooling power overwhelms me
Like a horse with wings on its back

Those who block our way
Cry out to their own shadows that they are no longer the enemy
Facing the point of my sword, they pledge

I will leave my throne behind to go and fight
As a sign of love for my people, I will not retreat
The emperor of darkness, my own body will be my shield

Der Konig der Dunkelheit  (the king  of the darkness)
That name will shake the world to its foundations
In the blink of an eye

This is the best translation i have found so  far its very poetic.

I feel like this song is the story of  a man seeking power to protect those he loves and a king who lends his power by giving away his sacred blood  therefore letting his precious bloodline live on . what better than power. The video offers something completely different.

My synopsis of the video: after watching  this video a few more times i realize its actually not so different from the story of the lyrics at all. In the beginning asagi stand up from his throne in anger tosses his cape around everything is bright there is light shining on the globe ( i see this as his world) He proceeds to stare into a Gothic vial of blood  mixes it into some foreign liquid and drinks it.its seem as though the other member of the band which i see as the people of his palace  are frozen in a state on fear they hold roses in there hands and stare off into the distance seemingly waiting for their king to save them.After Asagi (the king) drinks the blood,he begins to transform. His eyes flash red his pupil shrink. He seems to regret for a few seconds drinking the blood he throws as he throw his hands out in agony.

D_Der_Konig_der_Dunkelheit.gif

(sorry that the gif is so long i got caught u in the beauty while i made it)

he tears the curtain from his room letting the moonlight spill in showing that he is indeed the king of darkness.He falls to the ground the venom pulsating through his veins. he gets up  cuts his arm and it heals instantly. He goes back and sits on his throne again. Darkness begins to spread on the globe ( once again what i take to be his world) . For the rest of the video everything remain dark, yet not gloomy. I feel power in the darkness and in the kings eyes.

i really love the effects used in this video the way the show Asagi’s veins pulsating in his neck and the way the moon seems to shine way more brightly than it should have.

The costumes that the members wear are so intricate.  I dont think we could expect any less  from D .The scenery looks so natural i almost want to take a trip and find this castle and live there ❤ ❤

sorry that this one is so long.I had to go into detail.  Had to do a synopsis and everything. I really love this video and this song .Im so glad i happened across it o accident. It is beautiful. It is powerful. It is everything i love in a song .

Remember guys, fight for your throne ,protect your people, let your power be your shield!!! ❤

Stay kei

Orb -Matenrou opera Song review

So lately this song has inspired me quite a bit its feel is just very warm and inviting. I love Matenrou opera very much. I think their music is wonderful . Im sad about Anzi’s departure and i wish him well. Matenrou opera has announced that they will be continuing the band with the remaining members. That is very good news as i love their music.

The reason why im right bout this song is because i recently watched an AMAZING live performance of  Sono’s voice was amazing everything was extraordinary it got me thinking about the song and video and i fell in love with it even more.

Sadly i could not find an English translation of the song but that will not stop me from talking about how much i love this song

my favorite thing about the song is the music .I know that sound kind of cliche or whatever but the music is very calm and easy to listen you kind just want to throw your arms open and sway  while listening . Thats the way the music makes  you feel.

i love how in the video all of the lights  and than  when you see the theater form  the bands view . the look the members have are very cool as well its nice to see Sono with black hair ❤  and his red eyes are pretty cool as well . I love Ayame’s red hair and Yuu hair in her ponytail is pretty cool .

 

seriously  though i love Matenrou opera they make music that is both hardcore and melodic with very intense meaning and Sono’s  voice just magnifies the beauty in the songs.

More Matenrou opera songs to listen to: tengoku no aru basho,helios ( i wrote about this one) ,pandora,burning soul, innovational symphonia,

Anime /Manga review : Your lie in April *no spoilers*

I finished this wonderful anime Months ago. words can not express my feeling so ill use a song from the soundtrack  Yuujin a-kun

 

It seems as though music can speak louder than words. I have never before felt this much emotion  during and after the show ….Well here goes all the things i like about Your lie in April (Shigatsu wa kimi no uso)

The amazing details and scenery: All throughout this show the scenery and detail are so vivid and bright that your heart seem to  become the various  shades of pink from the drifting sakura that falls when kousei plays piano. I love the shade of color the starry night skies and the dull glow from the fireflies the chocolate colored desserts its all so stuning

The characters: I actually cannot pick a favorite character among these beautiful thought out and drawn characters. i have t say that i feel as though i am a bit like every character is in this show and manga. You can relate to them in that way.It almost feels like you know them, you do know them.

The dialect: The character in this show and manga speak so beautifully your heart cannot help but flutter with their emotions. the images that you can see just from a few said words s very interesting. Each and every character has his/her own unique style of speech

The plot: A child prodigy who gave up on piano is finding hope  in strange places. I have to say this is a very good tear-jerking anime. Just watching someone struggle for hope is enough to shatter my heart.

The music: This is probably going to sound “cliche” but the music is so  emotional. its composed and performed at an extraordinary level. Every song played in this show is spectacular.

Afterword: I recommend this show to everyone. Go ahead watch it  and tell me in the comments if you like/liked this show /manga.

Stay kei
