Tofu's Wish Fulfillment in Anime

yatsude.full.292708

Have you ever sat back after finishing an anime and gone “Man, I’d love to live in that world”? Well you’re definitely not the only one, and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about! Anime is able to capture breathtaking moments (either fictional or non-fictional) through pure animation unlike other media’s we are known to. There’s a world that can only be given life through anime and this captures our imaginations. Iso from Nabe! has started a blog carnival about sharing such desires to live in particular anime series we’ve made a connection with as Kai and Sleepynoyume have done. I will also be joining the bandwagon by sharing with you readers the animes that have captured my imagination and the desire to live in that world.

Pokemon

Red.(Pokémon).600.461520

Come on, I’m sure I’m not the only one who wished for this when they were young! Ever since I was little, I always dreamt of becoming a Pokemon trainer and going on an adventure with my best friends and a Pikachu next to me! All the animals would be Pokemon and there would always be an adventure everyday, it’d always be exciting and fun plus I’ve always wanted to try out Brock’s cooking because it looked really nice! *sigh* So nostalgic thinking back on my childhood days. I think Pokemon was one of the most influential show for most or even all of us. We were able to relate to Ash due to our age while the world of Pokemon triggered our crazy imaginations.

Great Teacher Onizuka

Great.Teacher.Onizuka.600.291236

I really have to say that Onizuka is one of the worst teachers around due to how violent he is, how perverted he is and how much of a trouble-maker he is in general, but at the same time Onizuka is one of the best teacher role models I’ve seen in anime/manga. Although his ways of taking care of the students is beyond human, he’s a good teacher at heart who is more viewed as a friend than a teacher. His relationship with the students become something worth admiring near the end and I loved it. As an aspiring teacher myself, I admire Onizuka as a role model (only for the good stuff he has done) and I long for that ideal teacher-student relationship. And that’s why I view Onizuka’s success as a teacher as a wish fulfillment itself. I would love to be in that class, chatting with the students like friends while still playing my teaching role.

K-On!

As a huge fan of K-On, there’s no way I wouldn’t want to live alongside my favourite group of girls where I can chat, drink tea and play music alongside them as a club member and as a close friend. It’s a dream come true! Sharing the same passion with Mio about left-handed bass guitars, talking non-stop about how similar we are. I would literally be in heaven if I lived in the world of K-On. Everyone’s always having fun without a care in the world, doing what they love the most without society judging them. It’s beautiful! It’s perfect! *goes into hardcore fanboy mode*

So what about you guys? What are some anime’s/manga’s that you wanted to escape into? Maybe all them shoujo series so you can find true love? I know I would!

  • I don't think you'd be able to live in the K-ON world. There are no guys there.
    My recent post Chihayafuru S2 ep. 1

  • Yeah man, I remember how much I liked Pokemon back then. Not only did I enjoy the game, I liked watching the cartoon (I didn't know about anime back then) on TV as well. I always thought it would be cool to be a Pokemon trainer though you'd probably be uneducated because you quit school to pursue your Pokemon master dreams xP

    And wow, I never knew you wanted to be a teacher. Good luck on that! :)

    As for K-On, why am I not surprised? xD

    So what about you guys? What are some anime/manga that you wanted to escape into? Maybe all them shoujo series so you can find true love? I know I would!

    Oh man, you really hit the nail on the head right there.
    My recent post Happy Birthday Fukuen Misato!

    • Yeah age of 10 you leave home to go on an adventure xD Haven't even finished primary school yet and you're traveling already!

      Dude! Meeting that cute girl in a shoujo, how she declares her love for you and no matter what she loves you truly and forever~ <3 So good :P

  • Fadeway says:

    Yeah, Pokemon would be cool. So much meat everywhere, and transportable in small vessels that don't let it rot – awesome! You could even use the individual pokemon for different jobs according to their special abilities, giving humans more time to have naps.

    K-ON K-ON K-ON!!!!!! I have lost count of the numerous times where I wanted to be the one around the desk drinking aromatic tea from belgium-made royalty-worthy teacups. Plus who wouldn't want to be able to eat cake and not gain any weight? Now that's heaven. ;D

    My recent post Winter Anime 2012/2013

  • Before you live in the K-ON world, you would need to have a sex change D:

    Pokemon! How many generations have it been? I remember meeting the franchise when I was a grade schooler, it was the original Gold/Silver I think? Yeah… this brings back memory. I'm very amused at their naming convention now though, first we have the primary colors, then gold/silver, then gem, then more exquisite gem, then black and white… and now, X and Y! What's next!? O_o

    • I don't- I don't even want to know what's next :( Pokemon isn't the same anymore for me. But I'll always treasure my very first gameboy game (where the gameboy was actually a pokemon edition itself) and that's Pokemon Yellow! I loved having pikachu follow you around and I really regard it as one of the best pokemon games I've played due to how relatable it was to the pokemon anime series and myself as a child back then ^^

      But I've played all games up till Pearl which was the last one I played.

      OMG and that rumor that Satoshi Tajiri was dead!? Scared the shit out of me D: I'm glad he's healthy and fine.
