I’m Falling Down Into My Shadow

Don’t scary, the witch just drew a pumpkin carriage and
is only reflected in your eyes.

See you in your dreams. Yeah Baby,
Even if they are nightmares.

Fairy Blue, for you, I shatter the stars
and use them to adorn the Black Paper Moon.
Because you believed in me, when you’re lost, here I am
Forever with your soul.
If I look up, you shine like the moon.

The sweet Crimson Jam
that fell in the card raised the spell.
Your Destiny, if you wish for it, no matter the world,
you can grasp it with those hands.

Don’t be confused,
don’t let anyone shatter it.

Fairy Blue you gave me proof to live, a bond called eternity.
If you call for me, I will find you, My Dear,
No matter where you are,
I’ll release you from your curse.

I didn’t want to believe in anyone, there was a time I was mean,
but even so, your words have always resounded in my heart.

Fairy Blue, for you, I shatter the stars and adorn the signs.
When you lose sight of your dreams and get confuse,
please raise your head.

Fairy Blue you gave me proof to live, a bond called confidence.

You aren’t alone,
When you’re lost here I am
Forever with your soul
because you finally trust in me!

ARIA: Manga With Beautiful Artwork

Posted by hoshitachi



Aria (アリア) is an utopian science fantasy manga by Amano Kozue (天野 こずえ Amano Kozue). The series was originally titled Aqua (アクア) when it was published by Enix. The series has been adapted as an anime, with first season broadcast in 2005, a second season in 2006, an OVA in September 2007, and the third season on 2008.

The series is set in the 24th century in a terraformed Mars, an follows a young girl named Mizunashi Akari as she trains as an apprentice undine. The series has been praised for its calm-pacing, optimistic worldview, beautiful art, and for the anime, the quality of the soundtrack.



~STORY~

Aria and Aqua takes place in 24th century, starting in 2301 AD, in the city of Neo-Venezia on the planet Aqua--formerly Mars, which was renamed after being terreformed into a habitable planet covered with oceans around 150 years ago. Neo-Venezia is a harbour city of narrow canals instead of streets, traveled by unmotorized gondola.

The story is about a young girl named Mizunashi Akari, who arrives f
rom Manhome (formerly Earth) to become a trainee undine with Aria Company, one for three most known water-guide company in the city. As she trains, she befriends with her mentor and her senior in the company, Alicia Florence, trainee undines from rival companies, Aika .S. Granzchesta from Himeya, and Alice Carrol from Orange Planet, and others in the city.

Aqua covers her arrival on Aqua, an early training as a Pair
or appretience, while Aria countinues her training as Single, or journeyman, and also contains the graduation of her, Aika and Alice as a full Prima, or fully qualified undines.


~Adatation To Anime and Games~

Aria has been adaptated as an anime in three seasons and one OVA. The first season called "ARIA the Animation", the second season called "ARIA the Natural", the third season called "ARIA the Origination" and the OVA called "ARIA the OVA: Arietta". There's also two visual novel games based on the story; "ARIA the Natural: Tooi Yume no Mirage" and "ARIA the Origination: Aoi Hoshi no El Cielo".

The anime has the same story with the manga, but some of them are different, but still it's enjoyable to watch. The soundtrack is just a masterpiece, a slow-smooth music that make me calm. And also Makino Yui's soft voice really fits the opening and the inserts. Kawai Eri, who sung Athena Glory's (Alice's mentor) songs are great. The highest ranking ARIA soundtrack is "Euforia" single, which used for ARIA the Natural opening theme, which sung by Makino Yui, reaches #18 in Oricon Charts.


Overall, I like this manga. The artwork is gorgeous and detailed. I like how Amano-sensei draws water and building. Her colouring is great too, and the background is just simply awesome. If you read this manga, you'll never get bored to read it, specially with such a great artwork and interesting stories.

Seiyuu Profile: Haruka Tomatsu

Posted by hoshitachi

Born February 4, 1990 in Ichinomiya, Aichi. Haruka Tomatsu (戸松遥 Tomatsu Haruka) debuted as a seiyuu in 2007, starring in Shinkyoku Sokai Polyphonica as Corticarte Apa Lagranges. Since then, she has had other major roles such as Lala Satalin Deviluke in To-Love-Ru, Shiho Sannomiya in Zettai Karen Children, M.M in Kemeko Deluxe, and Nagi in Kannagi. Before graduating from high school in 2008, Haruka used to live in Ichimomiya city where she often took the shinkansen, travelling back and forth between Nagoya and Tokyo to attend recordings. She has since entered a university in Tokyo, where she now resides. Her music agency is Ray'n Music, and she's part of music group Sphere, which the members are her, Takagaki Ayahi, Kotobuki Minako and Toyosaki Aki.

At the first, her talent is found by her mother. According to her, because of her mother's support, she can get in to the entertaiment world. One time, she joined a Cinderella audition in 2006. She can make it to the best 15, beating the 37.443 other finalis. She said that it can be a chance for her and starting to watching some anime because she want to be a seiyuu.


In anime Kannagi, her role as Nagi brings her as the main caharcter. She often gets main roles, like Lala Satalin Deviluke in anime To-Love-Ru, Sannomiya Shiho in Zettai Karen Children and others.

She has a voice that perfect in many characters, from a mature woman to a little child. But, for now, she often voicing as a tsundere characters or a poor girl. After voicing a lot of characters, she realized that she had voicing a lot of difficult characters. Even it's a boy character, or as an old person, she want to do it. One of her dream is she want to be a cast in Studio Ghibli's animes.
Some of her roles:

-Bokurano -Yamura Futabi-
-Engange Planet Kiss Dum -Mayura-

-Moetan -Kuroi Sumi-

-Sky Girls -Makihara Yayoi-

-Kemeko Deluxe! -M.M-

-Asu no Yoichi! -Ikagura Ayame-

-etc

Non-anime Roles:

-RH Plus live action drama -Misaki Ami-

-Joshi Daisei Kaikesishi no Jikenbo audio novel -Fujiwara Moemi-

-To-Love-Ru drama cd -Lala Satalin Deviluke-

-Arcrise Fantasia nintendo wii game -Cecille-

-etc

Some of her songs:

-Future Stream (Hatsukoi Limited OP) (Part of Sphere)

-nO limiT (Basquash! OP) (Part of Eclipse)

-motto☆Hade ni ne! (Kannagi OP)

-etc

Well, I like her voice. She's really a talented seiyuu, and she can voice any characters--tsundere chara (Ayame), lolis (Cecille) and a tomboy girl who chases her love (Lala). I'm looking foward from her work. Maybe she'll be the next female-seiyuu idol?

Anime With Great Story & Animation: CLANNAD

Posted by hoshitachi


Clannad (クラナド Kuranado) is a Japanese visual novel created by the software company, Key, who also produced Kanon and Air. This anime has a great and interesting story, and also a beutiful animation, and it totally an eye candy. You won't get bored watching this anime, comedy and heart-touching scenes are ready to welcome you when you're starting to watch this anime.

There are recurring themes that appear in the story. But, the main theme is the value having a family, as the title of the series since according to the main scenario writer, Maeda Jun, Clannad means "family" or "clan" in Irish. Of the six main characters,
Tomoya, Nagisa and Kotomi have no siblings, through their parents factor majorly in their story.

The first half of the story takes place primarily at a high school in Japan, which is the best school in the city. Outside of the school, frequented locations include the bakery run by Nagisa's parents, and the dormitory where Sunohara Youhei lives. Throughout the story, glimpses into an Illusionary World are shown. This world is devoid of all life except for a young girl, though she later makes a body out of junk pieces through which the player can interact with her. The remaining half of the story takes place in the same city, after the conclusion of the first half.



Story--School Arc

This arc revolves around Okazaki Tomoya, a third-year high school student who dislike his life. His mother died in an accident, and his father turned into alcohol and gambling. One day, on his way to school, he met Furukawa Nagisa, a soft-spoken girl who is repeating his third year because of her illness. Her goal is to join the drama club, but they find that the drama club was disbanded. Nagisa decided to reforming the drama club, a
nd since Tomoya has a lot time to kill, he decide to help Nagisa.

After that, Tomoya meets and hangs out with several girls and help
their individual probelms. Like Fujibayashi Kyou, Ichinose Kotomi, Sakagami Tomoyo and Ibuki Fuko.

END theme: Dango Daikozoku by CHATA


Story--After Story

In the second season, the story focused in Tomoya and Nagisa's relationship. In the half of story, they already married and live together. Tomoya has to endure several hardships that the family has been suffering from, mainly involving Nagisa's illness. Just after Nagisa gives birth to their daughter, Ushio, Nagisa dies, leaving Tomoya to fall into a state of depression. He turns into alcohol and gambling, just like his father. This causes Nagisa's parents
to look after Ushio.

Five years later, Tomoya meets Okazaki Shino, his grandmother on his father's side. Shino explains to Tomoya about his father's past and tragedy, similar to Tomoya's current situation after Nagisa's death. After hearing that, Tomoya decides to raise Ushio and acknowledge Naoyuki as his father. Shortly after Tomoya regains his purpose for living, Ushio is struck with the same disease as Nagisa. Tomoya, Sanae and Akio struggle to save Ushio, with Tomoya retiring from his job, but all efforts are futile. In the coming winter, wanting to do anything for Ushio, Tomoya decides to take Ushio on a trip, but Ushio falls unconscious and dies shortly after.

Tomoya's psychology developed in his dreams of a bleak world where small orbs of light float around called the Illusionary World (幻想世界 Gensō Sekai). In the first few dreams, he sees a world devoid of all life except for one girl. Each time he dreams, he finds out more about the world. Tomoya discovers the girl has a special ability to fuse junk together to create new things, with which she creates a body for him. Thus he is reborn in this world, and fills time following the girl around. Tomoya conceives that only the two of them are "alive".

To pass time, Tomoya and the girl try to build another doll with more junk they find, but as it has no soul, it fails to come to life. Remembering a distant world where he came from, Tomoya convinces the girl to build a ship so that the two can escape the approaching winter and continue a happy life. Eventually, winter sets in, and the girl becomes cold to the point where she cannot move any more. Upon meeting this tragedy, the girl tells Tomoya that he has another chance to go back and make things right. To do so, he must collect certain "lights" (symbols of happiness) similar to those floating around in the Illusionary World. If all the "lights" are collected throughout both story parts, a chance to save Nagisa from dying in childbirth will become available, and the true ending where Nagisa survives and lives with Tomoya and their daughter Ushio will also become available.

OP theme: Toki wo Kizamu Uta by Lia
END theme: TORCH by Lia


The story and animation is really good. The comedy in this anime is really funny, but the heart-touching moment can make us cry too (for your information, I cried 4-5 times while watching this anime). The music is GREAT. The BGM is beautiful, and really fits the moment. Every heroine has her own theme, and I love all of them.

The voice actor is great too, several most-known seiyuu like Nakamura Yuichi (Tomoya), Nakahara Mai (Nagisa), Hirohashi Ryou (Kyou), Mamiko Noto (Kotomi), Kuwashima Houko (Tomoyo) and Nonaka Ai (Fuko). Even Fukuyama Jun and Paku Romi plays as a supporting characters in this anime.

There's two OVAs for this anime, the first OVA is: Alternate World ~Tomoyo's Arc~ that tells us about when Tomoya and Tomoyo is dating which is based on Tomoyo's arc in the game. The second OVA is Alternate World ~Kyou's Arc~, which tells us about Tomoya and Ryou is dating, while Kyou try to help them but realize that she loves Tomoya.

There's even a internet radio drama, called Nagisa to Sanae no Omae ni Rainbow (渚と早苗のおまえにレインボー), hosted by Nakahara Mai as Nagisa and Inoue Kikuko as Sanae (Nagisa's mother). Several voice actors from the anime appeared as guest, like Nakamura Yuichi, Kanda Akemi (Ryou's VA) and others. The second radio drama for Clannad After Story is Nagisa to Sanae to Akio no Omae ni Hyper Rainbow (渚と早苗と秋生のおまえにハイパーレインボー), hosted by Nakahara Mai as Nagisa, Inoue Kikuko as Sanae, and Okiayu Ryoutaro as Akio (Nagisa's father).
