Two years ago,  I wrote a post about my love of ost.  For those who are unfamiliar with the term, OST stands for Original Soundtrack.  This post entailed what I loved about them and then extended to some of my favorite themes from anime.  This got me thinking if I had to compile a list of my favorite soundtrack now, would it be any different.

So let’s get right into it.

12 Days of Anime: Favorite Japanese Snacks

Adobe_Post_20181213_2141021.jpg

I love a good snack to munch on throughout the day. I usually buy Japanese snacks from my local supermarket that has a handful of options. If I’m in Manhattan I would stop by a supermarket in China Town. I also used to order off a Japanese snack website that shut down a year or two ago. Cons are usually when I rack up on snacks. I now use a new website I want to introduce to you all if you wanted to order Japanese Snacks that aren’t around you locally.

12 Days of Anime: Favorite AMVs of 2018

Adobe_Post_20181213_2141021.jpg

I thought I’d share some AMVs I’ve seen this year. I liked the creativity these AMV creators have as well as some of the songs link so well with the anime. I haven’t seen some of these anime series but I do know about them. AMVs are some of the coolest things to make because of the time it takes for some to sync the clips to go with the music.

I’ve been on Netflix more than I’d like to admit. Flavor of Youth is three short films about three different people and their lives. The three short stories go over love, self-doubt, and relationships. I really enjoyed each film for the messages I got from them. The films are Hidamari no Choshoku (The Rice Noodles), Chiisana Fashion Show (A Little Fashion Show), and Shanghai Koi (Love in Shanghai).

I wanted to make a post about a genre of music that I love but then I decided why not make a post about the song I keep on repeat. I have a daily rotation playlist on Tidal and I add and subtract songs all the time. I usually make playlists for myself depending on what mood I’m in. I love music a big part of my life sadly I can’t hold a tune or play any instruments YET! Music is still apart of my life and I love what I love.
