OWLS November “Thankful” Post: March Came in Like a Lion and Became My Inspiration
Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations
I’m back this month with my first OWLS post in a while, and it just so happened to be with a theme that I was quite prepared to write about. This months theme is “Thankful.”
Here at OWLS, we are pretty thankful that we are able to come together as a community and share a love and appreciation for anime and manga. This month we will be showcasing our appreciation by giving a shout out post to our favorite manga artists, creators, production companies, and writers who produced some of our favorite works. We will be discussing our favorite works by these creators and our reasons as to why we appreciate them.
Also, as always, be sure to check out some of the other lovely posts from other OWLS blogger members:
For this post, I thought I would once again give some love to my favorite anime: March Comes in Like a Lion.
As I’ve talked about many times on this blog before, March Comes in like a lion is one of my favorite anime. Ever since I watched its first episode, I’ve been enthralled with its characters and invested in their development. Every second I have spent watching and writing about March Comes in Like a Lion is a time that I have been incredibly happy.
March Comes in Like a Lion is also a show that I would consider one of the best anime of all time. Its writing is brilliant, from the small, episodic stories to the overarching narrative of Rei’s road to healing. Its visual’s remain some of the most impressive that I’ve seen in an anime, with Studio Shaft’s personal touch making it all the more wonderful.
Considering the number of articles I have written, it would be boring just to ramble on for a few more paragraphs. So, for this post, I thought I would complete it by combining my love of anime and writing, and write a poem about March Comes in Like a Lion.
When March Came in Like a Lion
Life is often about tactical discretion
moving pieces carefully on a board
protecting what is most important,
while advancing forward and conquering life.
Much is often left unsaid when playing the game of life.
We make the moves we think are necessary,
without disclosing much of what our master plan is.
Remember that life is more than winning,
much more than one game could ever give you.
Life is family and friends, and those that care about you.
