It’s pouring really hard out there right now, which is a welcoming change to the hot, humid weather my city had for the last few days. On top of that, I’ve been sick the whole week, lost my voice, struggled for air and felt like there’s a 20kg stone constantly on my head. Let’s just say it hadn’t been a blissful week for me.
But it is raining now. The temperature is just right. I’m sitting by the window, enjoying the breeze and fresh air….and with my laptop on, re-watching Skip Beat!. The perfect setting and atmosphere for me to enjoy my anime. I don’t know about you, but me – I’m very particular about having everything in perfect order in order for me to truly enjoy my anime. And it’s not just having cool weather.
99% of the time I watch anime at night. If the weather gets too hot, I like to switch off the lights, cool down the room temperature. If it’s early in the morning, I like to have a cup of hot, rich coffee to accompany me. For some reason, I only like to have coffee with me and I want it rich and strong. Seldom do I seek for popcorns, chips and stuff, but on occasions, they are the treats of choice. And for some reason, I don’t like to stare into my laptop screen when the weather gets too hot or the sun too bright. I never considered moving my laptop elsewhere, don’t ask me why.
Oh, and I always put on my closed-back headphones when I watch Nodame Cantabile. With beautiful classical music accompaniment, I just want to watch that series with as much noise reduced as possible. Not just Nodame Cantabile, but can’t for the life of me think of other anime right now. That goes without saying, this habit doesn’t apply to all anime, just a selective few.
I’d like to believe some of us are as fussy as I am in order to have that perfect enjoyment of our dose of anime >.<. Or at least some of us, if not all of us, desire for that certain something that would enhance our viewing experience. Maybe a set of good speakers? Or maybe a huge full HD monitor? Or maybe a home theater that mimics the cinematic feeling?
