[ED] Datte Atashi no Hero | Sunday Salutations

Good evening everyone. It’s been awhile since I had a Sunday Salutation/ED of the week.

Posts have been scarce, and unfortunately it may continue this way for a little bit longer. But more on that in a little bit. First, let’s talk about my ED of the week.

With the spring season around the corner, and the highly anticipated Season 3 of My Hero Academia (and with the help of Mel) it was fitting to feature an ED from one of shows I’m looking most forward to this coming Spring. I haven’t done one of those “What I’ll be watching this season” type posts in awhile, and I think I’m okay with that.

This week’s ED comes from the second season of My Hero Academia, and is the second ending featured in episodes 14-24. The literal translation of Datte Atashi no Hero is “After all, You’re my Hero.” It seems to be set in a fantasy AU, with Deku posing as the protagonist traveler running into a few people on the way that help him in his quest.

Okay, let me just say, I literally picked this because, how can you NOT love everyone in these AU costumes? Especially wheny ou have a princely Todoroki who is riding on a white horse. I mean, how much more fantasy fairy tale can you get? Also his cute smirk, and the deadpan look on his face when his horse runs away from him.  Also, most of you know I’m just a die hard Todoroki fangirl, but there’s someone surprisingly slowly climbing up that list, and has ALREADY surpassed Bakugo. But I’ll save that for another day. Speaking of Kacchan, he’s looking pretty fierce as a dragon rider with a tattoo sprawling on his left arm. Forgive me for fangirling over his manliness. But yes, I’m leaving you with this ED.

So, okay, there’s another reason as to why I’ve chosen this song. After listening to the lyrics, I just.. *sigh*. I’ll cut to the chase. This song makes me think of you guys, after having looked at the translation of the lyrics.

“I can’t imagine you ever giving up,
Though I’m sure even you have empty, miserable days.
If you think you might be facing any number of monumental efforts—
The kind that come only once in a lifetime—I wanna be there to see it!”

So many of you guys have been really great friends to me, whether it being regular visitors that engage with me in the comment section, fangirling with me on twitter/line/discord, or collaborating with me on posts, OWLS and the iNAP podcast. I’ve been so thankful for everyone’s kindness as I try to struggle on my path to architectural licensure and the never ending support from all of you has been nothing short of phenomenal. That being said, many of you guys have said similar things to me to the quote to the right (I’m looking at you Mel, and my iNAP podcasters), you’re all cheering for me and rooting for me to get through my exams. And I hope that when I do,  you’re all around to celebrate. 🙂

“Our many tales of failure… versions of ourselves we couldn’t love… if we can just embrace them, we’ll be unstoppable!”

It’s with a heavy heart I have to tell you, that I did not pass my exam a few weeks ago. I’m not gonna lie, I could’ve studied harder, but with work projects ramping up and tons of overtime, I struggled to find time to study. It’s hard to sit at a desk again when I get home after a long day of work, much less sit a desk on the weekend to study. I’m just mentally drained. I’m trying not to make any excuses for my failure, but this fail won’t deter me from continuing to pursue my goal. I’ve found some helpful study guides and post-vacation I’ll be back in studying mode pursuing the next exam date.

Hurray! Hurray! You have a talent for making me say it again and again!
So keep standing your ground. I’m getting my courage from you.”

So yeah, these are snippets of the translated lyrics of the songs. I just want to reiterate how thankful I am for all of you guys that continue to support me as I balance my career/studying and the blog. I won’t be giving up this blog any time soon it’s a great hobby. Because of everyone’s support I can keep a brave face and keep moving. So yes, I get all my courage from every single one of you that have impacted me in terms of friendships. I never thought I’d find such a great support system via an anime blog, yet here we are. I love all of you guys.

I’ll be going on vacation at the end of this week and I’ll be away for about two weeks. I may or may not update the blog outside of a few scheduled posts. I’ll be on twitter updating, and IG posting. I’ll still have the interwebz so I’m sure a lot of you will still be hearing from me.

When I come back, I’ll be making a few adjustments to the blog. My posting schedule is still TBD as I try to get some reviews out that have been sitting for awhile. May will also be an exciting month as I’m planning something with a couple of other bloggers. And well, I’m prepping to do something special as well in July for….obvious reasons to you, maybe they’re obvious maybe they’re not. You’ll have to wait and see.

If I’m not writing on the blog, I’ve actually been writing a lot of short story fanfictions based on a few of the otome’s I’ve been playing. I also have been writing fanfiction. But only so very few people have been reading it. I’m shy about it.


Also, I’ve gone and created a Ko-Fi account to help me out with the site. Hopefully you guys will buy me a few coffee’s when I make a full return to the blogging realm post-vacation and get quality content out.

Hope all of you have a wonderful week ahead of you. Speaking of vacations, is anyone planning on going anywhere anytime soon? Have any fun anecdotes you’d like to share? Let me know in the comments below!

[ED] Kyokyo Jitsujitsu| Sunday Salutations

Good Afternoon! I’m back with another ED this week! First and foremost, I want to address the elephant in the room: my lack of posts. I’m still trying to get myself sorted out so please bear with me until I get my usual schedule back.

Valentine’s Day is Around the Corner…

Important Note: This week’s post may be sparse again as my work deadline inches closer and closer (Weds 2/15) then I’m going to try and catch up to my regular blogging schedule. However, aside from my OP/ED I will be posting MCM and Take Two! Tuesdays per usual. I also have a special post planned in the process as well!

Good afternoon fellow (ani)-bloggers! I hope you had a fantastic weekend!! I’m having a semi-productive one so far..well kind of. I decided to take a good chunk of the weekend off and not work from home because I was totally feeling burnt out. So I took Friday afternoon off with a nice nap, and then slept in Saturday, and just lounged around the house.

Since Valentine’s Day is literally around the corner, I wanted to feature one of my favorite OP’s from one of the very few Shoujo’s I’ve watched and really enjoyed. I’ve actually READ this manga all the way till the end and I really wish there had been a second season! It was a cute story about love (obviously) and rebuilding love and trust between the two main characters after the male disappeared from sometime.  The OP is a great song that encapsulates the show rather well. You can find the translated lyrics in the following clickable link HERE.

For the past couple of years, I’ve been spearheading a Valentine’s Day Brunch for the family as a token of appreciation to our wonderful parents for all they’ve done over the years. Not to say that we don’t show appreciation outside of this day, since we all show our parents appreciation in different ways. But we choose this day to celebrate our parents’ love for each other because clearly without them none of us would be here. I’ve come up with several family events that the cousins take care of throughout the year to give the adults a break from time to time.  However, this actually started because well all the cousins’ were single, so I proposed a family event. Anyways, brunch was a success today! Hurrah! It wasn’t as elaborate as it has been over the years, but due to work, I just didn’t have enough time to plan and coordinate.


Do you guys have any Valentine’s Day Events planned out for loved ones and siginificant others? How do you guys express your love? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
