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

D-Yami yori kurai doukoku no A capella to bara yori aki jounetsu no aria Visual kei song and video review

Man what a long title for a song. Come on D ,how do you expect me to remember all of this?LOL! just so you know this song title is usually shortened to Yami yori kurai. I decided that it wouldn’t be right not to write the entire name of the song.

This song ,This song !!!!!! This song is intense. So intense that the first time i heard it i was left speechless . I’m not exaggerating i literally was speechless. like uh what just happened. Then came the chill that spread all throughout my body and my tear duct decided to act all weird. I didn’t watch the video until a day later . Why do i feel the to tell you this? Because when i watched the video i became speechless yet again ,and for some reason my stupid tear duct got all emotional .I dont even know. I know you dont believe me  so one day ill make a reaction video to a song. you’ll see then that I’m completely  one hundred percent serious .

You want to judge me .Have you seen the video or heard the song?

Warning : This video and song triggers speechlessness,chills all throughout the body,weird dumb tear ducts, and pressing the replay button over and over.

I warned you so i am in no way responsible for what this song does to your body.

Im sorry for messing with your body but i must share this majesty with the entire world.

This song has a mixture of operatic  clean and unclean vocals all done by one person Asagi-Sama!! Yes Asagi is sama* to me ❤ . with a voice like his it cant be helped.

now that im done fangirling about Asagi-sama its time to fangirl about this entire song and video.

(this ones going to be a little long too as i really love this song and could spend hours talking about it.Sorry guys.)

So now the synopsis of Yami yori kurai  doukoku no A capella to bara yori akai jounetsu no aria the lyrics :

English translation:

My dear rose. oh You are all of me in this world.
In now, the past, and the future. I sing for you.

an abyss a voice that creeps on the ground an a cappella lamentation* darker than darkness
a heart fulfilled a voice that falls from the sky an aria* of a passion redder than the rose

I never know pleasure to live.
Why was I born such ugly?
(Why?) (You wish?) (Your mind?) (x2)

just once, I want to see how it is to love even from underneath this ugly mask
to be born into this world without knowing love engulfed by darkness as it is

You must choose! Come with me!

Nobody can stop me!

I never know pleasure to live.
Why was I born such ugly?
(Why?) (You wish?) (Your mind?)

only lamplight scorches my heated breast for I cannot forget the end of this love
come now, it’s alright to go it’s like you are completely engulfed by light

If you will forget, but even so I will remember forever and ever.

My dear rose. You are all of me in this world.
In now, the past, and the future. I sing for you.

to be born in this world without knowing love engulfed by darkness as it is…

Dude wtf how is this not being put into a book of the worlds best poetry??? i dont understand. these lyrics are amazing.

i don’t feel that these lyrics are a story more like a plea or a poem expressing the feeling of someone who feel unloved in a world of darkness you can feel the pain in the lyrics  .

I feel like this song is a cry to the gods that this person wants to be treated normal even  though his life is complete darkness i feel like the rose is someone he admires and loves and cherishes but that many there people feel the same way so he knows that he will never be able to capture their heart,however he wants this person to notice to remember but if they dont it will be okay because he will always remember the beauty that made his heart sing that made him feel less unworthy .

 

Now on to the video synopsis of Yami yori kurai doukoku to A capella to bara yori akai jounetsu no aria:

I hope you’ve watched this video . If not scroll up and watch it . Now !!! Go  do it!!! Dont you dare read the synopsis of a video your haven’t watched.

The video starts off with a beautifully shining chandelier . even though the chandelier is bright the room around it seems dark. You than see a Asagi-sama holding a mask over his face standing in front of a woman in a white dress. it than shows him in front of the  rest of the band and he  opens his arms with a rose in his right hand.

i feel like the chandelier is perhaps  a symbol of the beauty  that the person (Asagi-sama) see and love i think that Asagi-sama wearing the mask shows that he has a longing to be beautiful to  be loved by the beautiful. But than he takes off his mask showing her his true face which is raw and “ugly” i notice that while he sings he hold on to the rose tightly. he holds on to what is beautiful tightly . the girl in the white dress at one point  walks into the room with a candle and Asagi-sama puts the mask on showing that he is afraid to open with those he finds beautiful i also notice that the mask only covers half of his face the part with which he is insecure perhaps. i feel like he is begging when is asking come with me he is desperate he really want whoever it is to see that he truly is beautiful. he crawls on the floor he yells

when he sings the part “if you will forget but even so i will remember forever and ever”  he reaches up to the sky as if to hold on to the memory but when he sing “my dear rose you are all of me in this world in now the past and the future i sing for you “and he takes off his mask i think he realizes that he can never be accepted because in the end  the rose he holds on so tightly to breaks and is no more. Perhaps he learns a lesson that you shouldn’t on focus on the material thing that beauty is in your face but in your heart.

“to be born in this world with out knowing love engulfed by darkness as it is ”
This song is beautiful no matter how you look at it . I hope that you found some reason to like it.  I dont even want to talk about how the members are dressed in this video i dont feel like ts important whats important to me is the words and the way the music makes me feel. Thats whats really important.

*sama- a Japanese honorific you use for one you greatly admire often used for gods and other dieties

*Lamentation- the passionate expression of grief or sorrow (also like this song)

*Aria-a long accompanied song in a solo voice typically in an opera (this song is sort of like an aria)

 

Bts (Bantan boys) War of hormone Review

Many of you may not have guessed this but im a HUGE kpop fan. Awww who am i kidding its so obvious im constantly fangirling about my bias’s and stuff lol.

So i bet now your’e wondering who my bias  for Bts is wanna know?
Ill tell you in the end .

So now lets get started!!!

I LOVE this song so much duh thats why im doing a review on it lol. anyways i doubt you havent seen this video . bts is litterally the most popular kpop group out now ,but in case you live under a rock here you are.

Heres a hint my bias does not get hugged in the end of the video.

now lets get talking about this awesome video and song

English lyrics:

Thank you for existing
Please call me, I’ll buy you food
I think I’m crazy these days
Girls wear things that make me cough cough,
see right through, see right through
(Very much) thank you! For improving my eye sight
(Natural LASIK) Don’t need to spend money on that
I’ll be in panic I’ll be a fan
And I’ll be a man of you you you you babeMy eyes keep turning to the girls (yup)
Girls are like an equation, us guys just do them (yup)
Wear them more,
your high heels
I’m 18, I know what I need to know
I know that girls are the best things in the world
Yes I’m a bad boy so i like bad girl
Come here baby, we’re gonna hit it off

(Hello hello) (what!)
(Hello hello) (what!)
Tell me what you want right now
(Hello hello) (what!)
(Hello hello) (what!)
Imma give it to you girl right now
You’re not mine but you’re the best
My body twists and turns in front of you
I want to approach you but you’re seriously too beautiful

Girls are the best
present present
My real wish is
Only you, only you

If it’s you, I’m ok
Oh, I can’t hold back every day
Your front is the best, your back is the best
From your head to your toes, you’re the best

La la la la la la la la la
Your front is the best, your back is the best
La la la la la la la la la
From your head to your toes, you’re the best

La la la la la la la la la
Your front is the best, your back is the best
La la la la la la la la la
Even your walk is the best

It’s completely ridiculous
I don’t care about girls I’ll play with once and say goodbye
But I learn when I see you, Body 101
My testosterone heavily shows up
After winning a war of hormones
I’ll do some research, your existence
is against the rules, a foul
If the standard of beauty is in the ocean,
you’re the Seriously Sea 1
A mini cultural asset
that should be taken care of on a national level

Her hair, body, waist, legs,
even her other unspeakable parts
Saying I don’t care would be ridiculous as a guy
I lose it just at her tiniest gestures
Girl, your temptations keep me away
from my computer every night
For her, it’s lady first
Girls are like cold ice mountains? Let it go
A female that drives me crazy, provoking me every day
After fighting my hormones again today,
I’ll pop my pimple

(Hello hello) (what!)
(Hello hello) (what!)
Tell me what you want right now
(Hello hello) (what!)
(Hello hello) (what!)
Imma give it to you girl right now
You’re not mine but you’re the best
My body twists and turns in front of you
I want to approach you but you’re seriously too beautiful

Girls are the best
present present
My real wish is
Only you, only you

If it’s you, I’m ok
Oh, I can’t hold back every day
Your front is the best, your back is the best
From your head to your toes, you’re the best

(Because of who?) Because of girls
(Because of what?) Because of hormones
(Because of what?) Because I’m a guy
(Because I’m a guy?) Because you’re a girl

(Because of who?) Because of girls
(Because of what?) Because of hormones
(Because of what?) Because I’m a guy
(Because I’m a guy?) Because you’re a girl

Girls are the best
present present
My real wish is
Only you, only you

If it’s you, I’m ok
Oh, I can’t hold back every day
Your front is the best, your back is the best
From your head to your toes, you’re the best

La la la la la la la la la
Your front is the best, your back is the best
La la la la la la la la la
From your head to your toes, you’re the best

La la la la la la la la la
Your front is the best, your back is the best
La la la la la la la la la
Even your walk is the best

I got the lyrics from color coded lyrics go to their site and give those a like please

so these lyrics are awesome i love how bts makes English rhyme with Korean i think that is so cool.

I like how this song isn’t in any way degrading to women like a lot of songs about women in america are. This song is just literally about how the members of Bts feel around pretty women .

I love this songs mixture of hard guitar riff and normal hip-hop/pop beats

The dance moves in this song are flawless as expected from bts ❤ . I dont even mind at all the the video is sorta in black and white. This song captures your attention literally at the intro

Another hint my bias does not slap anyones butt in the video

MV_BTS_War_of_Hormone.gif

(another awesome  gif ❤ ❤ ❤ )

there is not much to say about this song except that is awesome that  their dancing is flawless and that my bias is ❤ JIMIN ❤ lol i hoped you had fun reading this short blog

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,

 

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

Scarlet Valse – Larme review

so i first listened to this song yesterday. OMG i have not stopped listening to it since it has literally been on repeat for like 24 hours now i need help this song is just too good and the video only makes it worse

So this band is called scarlet valse the lead singers name is kakeru  the band was started in 2011 the other members are: You ( guitar) Jun (guitar) takuya(bass) hiroki (drums).

give them a try i fell in love with this band when i heard there first song !!!

Sadly i could not find the lyrics for this song so i could translate them as well.

Thing i like about Scarlet Valse [Larme] :

the clarity : the video is so clear and clean the white background is flawless i dont why this caught my attention but it did.

The outfits: Especially Kakeru and takuyas. All of the outfits are so elaborate and so detailed its hard to miss this though.

Kakeru’s hair and makeup: oh my god kakeru is just perfection i mean just look at him

kakeru.jpg

❤ but his hair is just really cool he has my favorite hair in the band !!!

the music: its so emotional i cant even translate the song and i can already tell what its about its just so beautiful i  ❤ the piano intro its so soft and mellow and when it switches to guitar its not so harsh its subtle .

so yep thats all i can say about this song because im actually listening to it right now see you later i need to jam

Stay kei
