First time here on We Remember Love? Welcome and have a great time reading. Here is a guide to particular blog posts in the archives that make for a representative slice of WRL. Click on the Images to visit the respective posts.
Sometimes I indulge myself in odd topics. This post is a good example, bringing together Haruhi, fresh off the notorious ‘Endless Eight’ arc, Judeo Christian religion, and Martin Heidegger on Boredom. The discussion got pretty big in the comments section.
This is a first impression post for a show I blogged episodically. The post itself, as is with most if not all of the posts here is not a ‘review.’ The blogging style is more an exploration of the subject work; most of the time in terms of characters, themes, and narratives. I personally stay away from reviews because I almost always endorse what show or manga I choose to write about, without ever assuming the role of a ‘guardian of good taste.’
For the site’s first anniversary, I took on what I thought would best commemorate the love it represents for the Macross franchise. It felt right to write about Macross: Do You Remember Love? in a way that I thought would be our pièce de résistance for Macross. It was unnerving that Kato Kazuhiko, the composer of the music of Oboete imasu ka? was found to have hanged himself within 24 hours of the publication of this post.
Here mechafetish demonstrates our predilection to dive into the deep end of being a fan of the stuff we like (ROBOTS!). Here you’ll find multimedia guides to the subject of bits and funnels in the world of Gundam.
I sometimes produce commentary on anime appreciation and critical practice. Above are two posts that illustrate two core ideas that inform how I enjoy my anime and manga hobby and lifestyle.
Not as often, though I wish it were more often, I shoot it up with the readers for some interactive fun. Here we objectively [snicker] compare all-time great 5-man Gundam teams in the tradition of the uneasy alliances in Mobile Fighter G Gundam. Feeling lucky? Try beating everybody who jumped into the fray. READY? GO!
Even less often I write a deeply personal post whose theme is represented by a certain anime I particularly identify with. The above post preceded a wave of articles like it, all written like a journal where anime strongly represents some point in the lives of the people blogging them.
There are few things I wouldn’t do to pursue an editorial idea. Sometimes, I really have to enter the very universe of the subject anime itself, as I did here in Kamina City during the middle of the Anti-Spiral Moon Doom Clock crisis during the administration of Simon and Rossiu in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. There are many ethical concerns here in this post, least of which is what I was doing with Kinon…
