- aevum : age, life.
The word itself is descriptive. The addition of the s is my own desire to sound grand – not egotistically or vainly but in a way to show a form of beauty: yes, aesthetic presentation beat me to any other forms of titles.
Yes, anime is an age for me. In fact, it encompassed a great facet in my life (hence the title). I am not Japanese thus I did not know Japanese, however, Urusai Yatsura and Ranma use to capture me in my infancy. Funny, I did not know the name of the these anime titles until 2005 when Animax premiered them as classics. I only knew of a boy and a girl who kinda looked the same (I think I did not understand Ranma’s transformation at that point) and I remembered “Lamu” (Animax English dub also went with the chinese name of Lum). I remember wanting to not go to the tutor (yeah, I had tutors from a young age as I never studied and was overly hyperactive, it didn’t help me much though ’cause I only gained an interest in studying now in the present) so I can see these shows. I remember understanding bits and pieces due to the exaggerated actions and visual body language. It was fun.
Well. anime still prominently holds a good place in my life. I really love watching anime. I think it was of the greatest visual mediums to come out that can holds so many genres and information together. I like exploring the aspects of some great animes which may be popular but not always mainstream i.e. Revolutionary Girl Utena.
Well, this is exactly what this blog is about.
