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 ❤

Listen to my favorite Kagrra songs.

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
