All The Motions Of Ordinary Love

旦那が何を言っているかわからない件 (I Have No Idea What My Husband Is Saying)

Today I am going to talking about love, because to me, I still have no idea what it means to be in love and that is the perfect reason to speak about it. I have been searching for love for a long time. Seeking out that perfect woman, for when all is said and done I could settle down with her in the future. That person is out there right now driving to work, reading a book or drinking expired milk. I have no idea, but she is out there and that thought alone excites me. Everyone says you know exactly the moment you are in love, it hits you like a tonne of bricks.

ソードーアートオンライン (Sword Art Online)

Sword Art Online gets a lot of hate, as in, a tonne of it. What I do not understand is why people even bother hating it. Why waste your time?

It was something that I never really gave a chance and now I am going against that grain. I mean I’ve watched a lot of anime, certainly not as much as some, but a hefty amount for sure. In turn, my curiosity brought me to something different. I was enjoying the action, slice of life and psychological thrillers, but a time came to expand those horizons. This series, by far, was ‘out there’ for me. The sexually driven themes kept bringing me back after the first few episodes. I certainly was not expecting it to be the driving factor at the beginning. At least it was the only factor until I noticed how real it all felt. These two characters showing such a real innocence about them, it hit close to home. Two young kids trying their hardest to express the right feelings, as awkwardly as two young kids can. It is damned beautiful.
