오혁 (OH HYUK) – 소녀 (A Little Girl)

I don’t know if you guys know, but I am equally obsessed with  kdramas/kpop as I am with animes. Which is why I do post korean music on this blog too. Also the reason why I haven’t been posting as much anime related content as I used to. I am currently in my kdrama phase as a break from anime. I don’t know if I will be using this blog as a platform to review kdramas. I was originally going to when I first started this blog, but animes alone are already a lot of work. I do have an instagram account: @sojudramas, which is dedicated to the kdramas I watch, so I might just stick with that.

Anyways, this OST is from a drama called Reply 1988 (a.k.a. Answer Me 1988), and it’s a beautiful OST sung by Oh Hyuk.

The Not-So-Colourless White/Silver Hair Characters

Throughout my years of watching anime, I’ve noticed how I was drawn to characters with white/silver hair. I don’t think I know of a character with this hair colour who was not attractive (aside from characters who actually have white, greying hair due to age of course). I think this hair colour just gives characters a mysterious, ethereal charm, along with their entertaining personalities. You will notice that this list only contains male characters. I know that there are plenty of great female characters with this hair colour too, but I’m not as drawn to them. So without further ado, here are my current favorite characters with beautiful fair hair:

*I’ve linked the summaries to the titles for those who are not familiar with any of the series discussed below

Inuyasha-full-body

Inuyasha (InuYasha): Inuyasha is half human and half demon who partners up with a human to gather the shards of the Sacred Jewel in order to fulfill his desire of becoming a full demon. InuYasha is one of my favorite animes and also the catalyst of my white/silver hair bias. Although riddled with flaws, Inuyasha is still a dynamic and admirable character. He’s funny, strong, and protects Kagome with all he’s got. I really enjoyed watching him every episode.Tomoe

Tomoe (Kamisama Hajimemashita): A fox yokai turned familiar who serves the new land god, Nanami. He is the definition of loyal. Even when the previous land god left for 20 years, he kept up the maintenance of the shrine and waited for the land god to come back. Furthermore, I really like his aloof personality, and when he shows his caring side, especially when it comes to Nanami, it just melts my heart. Also, I can’t forget to mention how great he looks with long hair!

Mizuki

Mizuki (Kamisama Hajimemashita): This anime would not be the same without Mizuki. He is a divine white snake who was shrouded with loneliness after his land god perished; however, after meeting Nanami, she relieved him from his lonesome state which eventually lead him to voluntarily becoming her familiar. Mizuki is a great character. Although he can be manipulative, his innocent, child-like self is so entertaining to watch. He also has a good sense of responsibility and loyalty. I enjoy his interactions with Nanami and Tomoe. Personally, the most memorable scene he’s in is when he’s practicing playing on the flute to accompany Nanami’s Kagura dance practice, but he can’t even make a sound! It had me in stitches! Here’s the clip, but I think it’s funnier within the context of the episode.

Gin

Gin (Hotarubi no Mori e): It still breaks my heart when I think of Gin. Gin was abandoned in a forest when he was a baby. Taking pity on him, the forest lord casts a spell to save his life by making Gin’s body age slower than a normal human; however, if ever he comes into physical contact with another human, the spell would break, and he would disappear. It’s such a sad and cruel cost when Gin is such a sweetheart. Watching him is a breath of fresh air. He’s kind of like the boy-next-door. He would be one of my main reasons to rewatch the movie.

shiro

Shiro (K-project): a.k.a Yashiro Isana. He is the main protagonist in the series, and the moment he was introduced to the screen, I liked him immediately. He has an eccentric personality, and later in the show, he becomes a pretty impressive character. Due to his whimsical but kindhearted nature, he is a likeable character, not only to me, but to the other characters in the show as well.

03._Hayato_Gokudera

Gokudera Hayato (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!): What drives Gokudera is his ambition to become the right-hand man of the 10th generation boss of the Vongola Family, Tsuna. And that ambition is what makes him such an interesting character. As a loyal character, he fights with everything he has for the Vongola Family and his comrades. Although he has a bad boy demeanor, he is one of the smartest guys in the gang. I think he is quite the charming character.


Thank you for reading! I’d love to know who your favorite white/silver hair characters are!

My Anime Binge List: April 2016

It’s a new month and it’s time to review what I’ve binged on in April. If you don’t know yet, this is a quick list that contains animes that I’ve marathoned within 24 hours during April, which usually implies that they are good animes if I can finish them in one day. Just a side note, I did not watch as many shows as I did in March (I don’t know, is that a good thing? Am I finally being more productive? *shock*). To be honest, I’m kind of falling off the my anime phase right now. It happens every year where I am all of the sudden not in the mood to watch any animes. If you haven’t noticed, I’m not posting consistently like before; however, I still very much love anime and will try to keep up with this blog. Does this happen to anyone else? Anyways, back to what you’re here for! Here are the animes I breezed through in April:
