Animation is a beautiful tool that allows creators to tell wonderful stories. Just because these stories are from a culture different than what you're probably used to doesn't mean you shouldn't give them a chance!

FLCL

If you're a fan of colorful and beautiful animation that tells multiple stories, this one is for you. The first episode aired in 2000. Lucky for us, Adult Swim has recently renewed FLCL for a second and third season. This is an anime that can be watched and rewatched in order to gain new appreciation for characters and little details.

Steins; Gate

Steins; Gate was beautifully adapted from a visual novel. Every single character has a unique personality and something to add to the story and progression of the plot. When watching for the first time, I laughed, I teared up a bit, and I was glued to my screen in suspense and excitement wondering what was going to happen next. Steins; Gate is a sci-fi action with comedy and hints of drama. Although it is a bit slow to start off, getting to episode 12 is like a reward as things immediately pick up speed and things really get interesting.

Death Note

You've heard of this one before. There's a live-action adaptation on Netflix. Don't watch that. Watch the original, it's better, I promise.

Ping Pong The Animation

If you can learn to love the unique style of animation, you can learn to love Ping Pong The Animation. This is by far the most relatable anime imaginable. Were you a high school athlete? Have you ever done anything you loved to do competitively? If you answered yes to either of those questions, I promise you, you will relate to and thoroughly enjoy this anime. It's sad and it's happy. It has the capability to make you laugh and bring a tear to your eye.

Attack On Titan

You've probably heard of this one, too. Attack on Titan is fun to watch and keeps you on your toes when you think you're about to guess what happens next.

Sword Art Online

If you die in the game, you die in real life.

Interesting ideas and colorful animation

Cowboy Bebop

A true classic. Cowboy Bebop is an anime you don't have to watch in its entirety to enjoy. You can watch an episode here and an episode there out of order and still enjoy the plot progression and characters.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
