A few days ago, in a burst of nostalgia, I decided to begin watching anime again. I was in the mood for something light-hearted and funny, and after reading a few reviews, decided to settle on this one: Ore Monogatari (My Love Story). It was exactly what I was looking for!
The protagonist, Gouda Takeo (剛田 猛男 ), is a first year high school student. He is very tall, muscular, unconventional-looking, and extremely well-liked by the boys in his school. He however does not seem to have much luck with girls, since all the girls he likes only have eyes for his good-looking best friend, Sunakawa Makoto ( 砂川 誠 ). One day through a series of events, he meets and falls for Yamato Rinko (大和 凛子), who, to his great surprise, likes him back! What follows is a love story that is both hilarious and incredibly sweet. 🙂
Watch Ore Monogatari here!
Mbithe’s ideal life would consist of an infinite loop of travelling to beautiful, idyllic locations with breathtaking views, amazing food, and nothing on her to-do list but relaxation and rejuvenation. Mbithe’s actual life involves a lot of proposals, research papers, and code, with just enough travel to make up for the rest of it.
The Otaku culture is catching on in Nairobi as we’ve discussed in previous posts. Although the otaku community is present, it’s scattered and sometimes it’s hard to tap into this community. This post is here to give you an inside scope on the pages to follow and places to be to enjoy the best of being an otaku in Nairobi.
Shikow is a student of the law, life and day dreams. A lover of adventure and good times, she takes delight in learning and creating new things. She is a beautiful letdown and painfully uncool.
I like to think that my sense of humour is highly evolved. Scratch that, my sense of humour IS highly evolved. In fact, it is so high on the evolutionary ladder that I sometimes laugh alone because the people around me will not understand (or see) what it is I am laughing at and no, I am not crazy, I’m just lots of fun to be around and Number 13, on this article proves it, the rest has nothing to do with me. 😛 😀
Point is, I love a good laugh and anime is one of the ways I get one. (The other is having a Wondercore meeting 😀 )
In a perfect world, Gillian would be travelling round the world in her red vintage VW T1 van (Hippie Van) gathering stories of the people she meets and retelling them to those ready to listen. She is in the process of building this world which is now going to have all of you in it.
