There’s no doubt Tamayura Hitotose is one of the good series in my book. There’s this mellow OP song that I fell in love with the first time l heard it. Not to mention whole soundtrack were soothing as well. The gorgeous artwork is something that I feast my eyes on Tuesday’s or Wednesday’s night for the last twelve weeks. One cannot argue the scenic town of Takehara in Tamayura Hitotose is something to gush about. Sure, the pacing was a bit too slow but I had fun nonetheless. Let’s just say the anime came at the right time. It was something I look forward to after hard day at work trying to meet year end deadlines (yes, my work has been rather stressful lately).
As the title suggested, this post is more about me than Tamayura Hitotose. The short little paragraph above is my quick and short review of the slice-of-life anime. I’ve said all I needed to say about the series. =)
Now, one of the things I can relate to the most in Tamayura Hitotose is the indecisions in what I want to do. Maon often jumps back and forth between her many hobbies and ambitions, Fu isn’t sure if she wants to a photographer even though she’s already a good one and Kaoru isn’t sure if she’s going to do something related to her passion when she grows up.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do when I was submitting my college applications back in high school. But I was very sure what I don’t want to be. I dreamed many dreams. I wanted to become a lawyer, a marine biologist, a chemist among others. The ideas were thrown back and forth and it was so hard for me to make my decision. It was almost like Maon who has her own list of ever changing ambitions. In the end though, I chose to study computer science because technology fascinates me the most. I’m glad I made the right choice because right now, I’m enjoying my job very much even though it can be really stressful sometimes. Like now.
Today, I still am very indecisive on many things. When I started this blog, I had no idea what I wanted it to be. All I wanted to do was to write and share my thoughts on various things. It took me almost one year before I finally decided to make the transition from an “all-in-one” blog to an anime blog although it was very obvious I’ve been writing more posts on anime/manga than anything else. Sometimes I think a little too much.
Like Kaoru, I’d get worried but not tell my friends and family until I resolve the issue on my own. In my opinion, decision is best made on our own. It will come eventually. But that often worries people around me. Again like Kaoru, I have understanding and lovely people around me. >.<
So yeah, that’s something I relate to in Tamayura Hitotose. Did you see a part of yourself in any of the anime you watch?
