1 pointIt's been quite a while since I've been on here but I was overcome with a sudden urge to revisit. I'm slightly embarrassed at such a childish username and past posts I have made. It's midnight and I'm sitting at my desk as I stumble across some videos in my recommended of dc openings. I'd say it's been a good 6 years since I've listened to them but I clicked anyway. Immediately, a wave of nostalgia washed over me. Its fascinating how songs seem to capture a period of time within it, and as one listens to it again they are able to relive every moment of that period. The past few days I have been overwhelmed with stress with upcoming exams, yet this seemed to be the only thing that has gotten me to calm down. I'm undoubtedly much younger than most people on this forum, if still active, and it's crazy to think that such a deserted site used to be the bustling center of many mystery fans. This nostalgia is so painfully bittersweet even as it reminds me of old times; a time where I had so much love for every single character, where I met so many people online. I'm not sure where I'm going with this, but I'm grateful to have stopped by.
1 pointMy crush would be Haibara because of her situation. She had a sad and dark background full of pain. Yet, she still had the will to live, to fight on. She is always haunted by her past, yet she has not given up. I think that is what makes her so fearless and heartbreaking. Many times I wish I could step into her world give her a hug.
1 pointActually, I think Ran's character is actually a loveable character. She fits to be a perfect wife in reality. Perhaps we need to rethink about her character from Japanese girl's point of view. Also, we need to understand that that this anime has been a pretty long series. At that particular point of time when her character has been established, her character was actually a portrayal of most normal girls in high school. And at that time, the idea that girls are weaker than guys are still around. Girls like her are more or less thought to be normal. So the idea to make her strong in something like karate was actually to make her a little less normal. However, now, the situation is totally different. People do not think like this anymore. Girls are now a lot stronger than they used to be. Therefore, looking at girls like RAN now makes her a very plain character. Her actions now are deemed irritating and annoying. However I will still support her! Just because this girl still possesses the values which I believe in. To me, a person is smart or cool or beautiful or weak in heart is not as important as what I deem to be a value. So I don't dislike her.
