Dreaming in anime
Here’s my random/geeky musing of the day––ever wish your life were an anime? This question is obviously more for my anime/manga fans out there.
I always imagine different scenarios or situations in my every day life becoming this really cute and comedic anime episode. I would think about an anime version of myself doing wacky or cute things that you would see other anime characters do.
I’m a very affectionate person by nature and love to hug my friends and family whenever I can. I like to be playful and I enjoy laughing at things. I would embody the anime character who skips happily onto a scene with hearts or flowers following wherever I went, a la Hunny-sempai from Ouran High School Host Club.
But then I also embody the silent, mysterious type who sits in the corner of the library and reads by herself. I make people wonder about who I am if they don’t know me too well. You could say I’m a combination of playful/happy/calm/silent all wrapped into one. I wonder if there is such an anime character out there.
My cousin once said I’m almost like Chiyo-chan of Azumanga Daioh. He said whatever I do or say ends up coming out cute. It’s so cute that he wants to hug or pinch me sometimes. It’s kind of like how Chiyo-chan’s classmates view her if anyone is at all familiar with the anime. Luckily, I don’t wear pigtails and I’m not as short as her. And I’m not 10, but my guy friends like to tease me about looking like a 12 year-old than an adult in her 20s.
Living a technianime life sounds more interesting and fun. It would certainly make real life less mundane. Has anyone ever thought about this? Is there an anime character you are most like?
