kimi no na wa (your name)

Hi. 


Firstly,  Selamat hari raya,  maaf zahir dan batin semua, sorry lambat wish my bad. So,  today (or tomornight) I would love to update this silly blog yang hidup segan mati tak nak ni dengan buat review satu anime nih. Well,  I know I'm already a 23 years old lady but don't worry, watching an anime is not a crime guys. I accidentally watched this anime when I urmm searching for the best anime films on Uncle Google and here we are 🤗.

***
Kimi No Na Wa (Your Name) is about a high school country-girl and city-boy named Miyamizu Mitsuha and Tachibana Taki realize they have switched bodies. 
Mitsuha who is fed up with her life in the countryside and wishes to be a handsome Tokyo boy in her next life, her wish become true when Taki and her realising that their bodies have been swapped when one day Mitsuha wakes up and realize that she's in Taki's body meanwhile Taki in Mitsuha's body and they're never knew or met each other before. 


Mitsuha and Taki totally confused about it, but both of them trying to to get used with the situation and they're start communicating with each other by leaving notes or leaving memos in each other's phone to protect each other's lifestyle. Both of them switch a few times a week unexpectedly and their memory of the switch is hazy after both of them wake up. 


I loves how Makoto Shinkai created this anime about a girl and a boy who is having different lifestyle and about Japan eastern culture like Kuchikamisake ritual, festival, kumihimo and so on. And yes,  I still remember how feminine Taki was when Mitsuha was in his body and funny when she was trying to get used with Taki friends and at the work place.

Part time job is a life in school students life in Japan dispite not all of them, I think. They're have a job after school activities. Different with us,  Malaysia. And Naruto.  Hahaha.
This is only me or anyone else who thinking like that? Haha.


Taki has a crush on his coworker, Miki and Mitsuha helps Taki get over her by arranging a date. And unsuccessful, then Taki tries to call Mitsuha but he's cannot reach her and also confusing with Mitsuha note and tries to find Mitsuha's home, accompany by Miki and Tsukasa,  one of his school friend. 


An owner of a restaurant told Taki about Itomori (Mitsuha's hometown) was destroyed by a fragment of the comet. Taki can't accept that Mitsuha already died when he find Mitsuha's name in the record of fatalities and then go to find a god's shrine to drank Mitsuha's kuchikamisake at god's shrine with a hope to reconnect with her body and warn her about the comet. 



Taki then sees fragments in Mitsuha's past and when Mitsuha go to Tokyo to met him, but Taki don't recognize her makes Mitsuha felt sad and cut her hair then he's wake up in Mitsuha's body,  trying to convinces Mitsuha's family but no one of them trust him including Mitsuha's father except Tessie and Sayaka. That's makes me feel happy because no matter how ridiculous your words is,  your best friends still support you although your family don't believe in you. I also learned a word in Japanese,  kataware-doki means twilight. In this anime,  twilight means when it's neither day nor night. When the world blurs and one might encounter something not human.


Taki,  in Mitsuha's body go to find Mitsuha who in Taki's body at the shrine, confusing. When twilight falls, they are returned to their own bodies and finally meets. Taki tells Mitsuha what she has to do and writes each other's names on their hands so they will remember each other. Taki wrote his on Mitsuha's hand but twilight passes and Mitsuha disappear before she can write hers. But instead of writes his name,  Taki wrote 'I love you' on Mitsuha name. Slowly,  Taki confused what he's doing here and shouting. When it comes to the morning, Taki going home to Tokyo.

Five years later, Taki, who is already graduated from university and is searching for a job and Mitsuha, who is survived from the comet crashed and lives in Tokyo recognize with each other and ask for each other's name at staircase after they are feeling as though they have met before. 
I loves at the part when their train draw parallel and Mitsuha and Taki look at each other.


Kimi No Na Wa also have a great soundtrack especially Zenzenzense and Nandemonaiya. So,  I hope you guys spend time with yourself to watch this anime and have fun. 

p/s : try to go to work with LRT or Commuter or Monorail,  who knows you might bump into someone who might be your other half.

So,  sempena dengan bulan Ramadhan ni,  why not buat satu review novel yang kena dengan bulan yang mulia ni,  ye dok? Mana tau ada yang tertarik bila baca review sampai terus nak cari novel ni dekat mana mana kedai sekali pun. CJ (shortcut for Contengan Jalanan) one of my favorite books from the mysterious author, Hlovate, cliche. And I can still hear the sound of firecracker around my house. Well done boys. Happy reading and happy selalu (sakit gigi 😢)

Author : Hlovate
Pages : 557
Price : RM 21.00
Publisher : Jemari Seni Publishing

Synopsis

I - Fend
Namanya Affendy. 'Fend; jika dipendekkan untuk panggilan. Umur - baru hampir masuk usia mengundi. Bergelar pelajar fotografi yang dunianya hanya berpaksikan lensa dan warna. Dan muzik! Dia gitaris merangkap vokalis Creepy Hues. Definisi hidupnya mudah.  Selagi ada warna dan irama, itu namanya bahagia. Hinggalah dia bertemu dengan Amalia. Sepotong ayat daripada gadis itu membuatkan erti hidup yang difahaminya selama ini hilang makna. Kisah ini adalah contengan pengalaman Fend sepanjang dia cuba menyusun semula kamus hidup. Contengan kisah perjalanannya di celah-celah sedapnya kota Kuala Lumpur. Contengan kisah perjalanannya dari Kuala Lumpur ke Kuala Perlis.  Contengan kisah perjalanannya melangkah benua dari Malaysia ke Australia. Kerana mahu mencari erti. Kerana mahu mencari 'Affendy'.
Contengan pengalaman Fend yang mahu mencari erti, mencari 'Affendy'
II - K²
Namanya Ku Kamaruzaman. Dipendekkan menjadi K² untuk teman-teman. Dia teman Fend.  Pelajar Creative Studies. Drummer untuk Creepy Hues. Paksi hidupnya hanya satu; seni. Perkara lain boleh ditolak tepi.  Hidup itu mudah,  tidak perlu mencari susah. Namun, erti itu mula berubah arah selepas kematian sorang teman. Tambah dikusutkan dengan perubahan Fend yang seolah-olah tersampuk badi krisis pertengah usia. Kembaranya ke Australia untuk menemani Fend dirasakan hanya sebuah percutian. Kembaranya ke Tanah Seberang di negara jiran yang membuka pintu hati dan mata untuk melihat dunia dari sudut berbeza.
Perjalanan sorang K² melihat dunia dari sudut berbeza.

My Thoughts

CJ, the sixth novel from Hlovate which is follows about Fend and K², two best friend who were on their quest to find the meaning of life and this book have two parts, the first one about Fend and the second one is about K² ( pronounced as K Square). Both of them, immersed in musics and have a rock band named Creepy Hues.  Fend as vocalis and guitaris while K² as a drummer.

Fend's life started to change when he met Lia,  a muslimah girl at X- Games event and met again and again at bus station when Lia waiting for the bus to Butterworth, Penang and Fend, Kuala Perlis for his cousin wedding. Lia gave Fend a CD which is change Fend's life upside down and that  bought Fend and Chad, Fend's cousin backpacking to Sydney and celebrate Ramadhan in Sydney, met with a Malaysian student, Akmal and together,  they're struggling to find the true path in Islam, how Hlovate emphasize in his/her books about Malaysian mentality about Ramadhan eventually open my eyes.

Purification by all the means and senses of the world.

 I have to admit,  I'd never travelling like Fend and Chad to find the true path in our one and only religion,  Islam and that makes me feel awful inside. Let's me tell about Chad. Chad's one of Fend close cousins who is Master student in Toronto, Canada. For me,  he's a good cousin. How I can define he as a good cousin?

A good cousin or friends or siblings will guide us to the right things. How Chad keep company with Fend and persuaded Fend to travel with him in Sydney, and how he's keep tolerant with Fend,  the manja ones. I'm pretty sure all of you or maybe some of you might have a cousin like Chad who is handsome, sweet talker and sweet smile, high education, and cool af. The favourite and fabulous cousin in family  :3. I like how Hlovate develope this story from music and students who loves guitar, art to the religious person but still the humble and funny ones. I knows the feeling when a person who you loves gone and how it affects my life,  horrible. But I'm trying.

Chad's death not the only reason for the Fend to be Affendy, that what K² thinking about. There's more than that and that's makes he think a lot. Then Fend engaged K² with him to the Sydney, as the samethings he's did with Chad, hoping K² will feel what he felt before. But K² only take it as a vacation. Only. In Sydney,  K² can't get what Fend trying to show to him,  until he's travel alone in Jakarta accompany with Fend's sketch book  and alhamdulillah, Allah blessed him by makes K² meets with Indra, a Christian guy whose keep talking about Islam then K² felt be grateful because he's already know what makes Fend to change himself from Fend to Affendy. Then he's going back to Malaysia and thanks Fend for everything and change his rules about life. Fend is also grateful because K² change to be a better Muslim. Me too.

Contengan Jalanan Quotes 

The man that decided to change on the 12th hours died at the 11th.

Everybody knows that death is inevitable coming, but it never fails to catch everybody by surprise every time one is going. 

Talking is nothing.  Doing is something. 

Ikhlas tu bukan kita yang ukur, tu biar Allah yang tentukan. Jangan sampai kita tinggalkan amal ibadat sebab tak nak riak dengan manusia,  kerana itulah tanda riak kita dengan Allah sebenarnya. 

Orang yang hati kering dan hati batu pun masih ada harapan untuk cari rahmat Tuhan sebenarnya. 

Ada beza antara jumpa benda yang kita nak cari dan cari benda yang kita nak jumpa.

For me,  CJ totally worth to buy and read. Hlovate taught us to be a better person dengan ikut acuan agama kita, Islam. And based on buku ni,  belajar la jugak bahasa Perak sikit sikit. Huhu.
So I gives 5/5 for this book. And thanks Hlovate for your great masterpiece. Ever.

Change to be a better Muslim before too late.

Hi



How was your day? Hope you guys have a great day today with your family, friends and whoever and I'm sorry for not being able to update my blog lately. Sometimes I wonder how another bloggers can update their blog often with a great blog posts T_T why I can't be like them,  that.  Back to the track, do you know what the best decision I ever made in the life? Stay single forever. Sometimes,  being single more better than stuck in wrong relationship with wrong person. Am I sound pathetic? I think it's. I'm tried to create a new random entry on the blog today because of a random-person-who-found-out-about-my-blog-throughctwitter-and-read-my-blog-and-make-me-to-update-the-blog, for sure. 

Oh almost forgot, happy birthday to me,  myself. Last Sunday,  I'm already been a 23 years old woman. 23 totally a great number to be a woman instead of girl because woman sound good for me. Totally good. Full stop. No birthday cake,  no birthday party no nothing just a normal day for me. Only got a few birthday wish on my facebook and twitter from my friends,  thanks you guys.  I love you. Ah yes,  23 and still don't have any boyfriend but I happy because I have my family and friends who always there for me and stay with me,  good and bad. No worries about boyfriend although Raya's around the corner and will get some questions like 'Bila nak kahwin' and yada yada yada  =_=' .

I know that not only me being single on my 20+, maybe another girls on 30+ still single and available and still sleeping with her bantal busuk (not me okay :p). Know what,  some women who stuck with a wrong relationship like make love with some men who already have a wife and kids are not so cool. Why you have to being a bitch to get a man in your life? Just stay single in your room and be happy and humble and tried hard to update your blog with a semangkuk Maggi Asam Laksa,  like me uhuk.

So (don't you ever thinking about to use last but not least words because this is not a karangan bahasa melayu tingkatan tiga, this is a blog entry, so be cool 😎),  hope any of you who are still single (available or not available) please don't be mad. Being single is not a crime against the world,  single life totally awesome so take it easy. No boyfriend isn't mean your life is over now,  it's how you can survive without any men using your own strength and your brain.

For you,  someone who asked me to update my blog,  kinda read this, penat kita taip.  And good luck with your exam.

Toodles.
