Filler Post: D&A’s Top 5 Anime Titles That circle around Friendship!

Who’s always been there for you when times got tough? Who’s always had your back when haters tried to get one up on you? Well guys, this filler post is all about the power of friendship. Friends are the family that you choose, and sometimes we find ourselves treating our friends better than we treat our own relatives. (Nobody’s perfect but they’re still your family.) Friends come in all ages, shapes and sizes, but no matter how hectic your day or life has been for you, you can always count on great friends to help you in your time of need!


Number 5: Amanchu!

This beautiful Slice of Life anime title is about a 15-year-old girl named Hikari Kohinata, who meets Futaba Ooki and encourages her to join their school’s Diving Club. They soon become the best of friends as they enjoy their diving experiences together. Diving’s okay on your own, but when you’ve got a buddy that loves the water as much as you do, that heightens the overall experience of actually doing it!

Number 4: Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day

Friendships are almost like people in the metaphorical sense of the word; meaning that they grow and mature the same way that we do. This series deals with the death of a childhood friend, causing the other friends to drift apart when they were younger due to the loss of their friend. As they got older they rekindle their friendship while trying to help one another move on after the death of one of their beloved friends. Life can be tough whenever a close friend of yours dies, but it’s always great to have other friends you can call on to help you get through it.


Number 3: The Pet Girl of Sakurasou

Sometimes in life we get thrown into unexpected circumstances that cause us to gain friendships on accident. (Although sometimes we just know that God works in mysterious ways.) This anime title shows us that point exactly! Sorata Kanda gets himself kicked out of the Suiko University school dormitory, and is sent to the Sakura Dormitory. A world famous artist named Mashiro Shiina moves into the dorm room that Sorata’s in, and is then forced to be her handler. Unexpected friendships can happen without notice, but the take away is the fact that your mental growth increases during the process.


Number 2: Nichijou (My Ordinary Life)

It’s never fun to get into any hijinks by yourself, that’s why you have friends so that when you do get into em’, it makes the thought and feeling of doing it that much more fun! Going through daily life can have its ups and downs, triumphs and failures, highs and lows. One thing’s for sure however; you’re not alone in this crazy emotional roller-coaster ride we humans call life. If you don’t believe us ask the cast of Nichijou, cuz their daily lives are just as crazy as ours! XP


And Number 1: Pokemon

20 years ago we were given a series-turned-franchise about the most unbreakable bond between a boy and his best friend. We know all the lyrics to the first season of this series, as we’ve watched him grow into one of the most well-versed pokemon trainers he is today. Ash Ketchum and Pikachu are literally the epitome of what true friendship really is. No matter how many of their other friends come and go these two are an inseparable pair. Many of us grew up with these bosom buddies during the 90’s era of anime, so there’s no doubt that we can learn a lot about the power of friendship and teamwork from these two.

Well guys, that’ll do it for this awesome filler post about friendship. Remember, if you ever find yourself feeling alone, just know that you’ve got friends that you can call on! (If you don’t, don’t worry! We’ll be your friends! ^.^)


Back to the Monday Night Anime & Food Grind!

It’s been 2 or 3 weeks since our latest Miscellany Monday segment, but now it feels good to be back on the Monday night anime-posting grind! That being said, we’ve got some lesser-known titles and delicious snacks for you guys to check out! By the way, we’ve taken the liberty of creating links to all of our sub-pages on the blog, and placed them on our main home page so that it’ll be much easier to navigate to the page that you wanna see the most!

Now it’s time for what we’ve got cooking for your Monday night anime blog fun! If you’re looking for an anime title that deals with the occult during an alternate timeline of the Edo-Period, then the answer to your prayers is none other than Mushishi. This series is an episodic anthology that deals with Ginko, an otherworldly man that is able to see these supernatural creatures known as Mushi. Although he travels to many places and studies their ways and existence, he stresses to others that the Mushi are not evil, but aids the ones who are suffering from various problems that are caused by these ubiquitous creatures.


If you’re looking for something that you can really sink your sweet tooth into, then the answer to that lies at a confectionery shop in Japan! Uiro is a steamed cake dessert that’s made out of rice flour and sugar, and can be found and purchased at your local confection shop in Japan. Many other regions also have their own version of this confectionery treat which was also the name of a medicine during the Muromachi Period (1336-1573).

Before the week concludes we’ll be posting the links to some of our most popular Filler Posts on our main page, so that you can enjoy reading them over and over again. We’ve also made a slight change dealing with the last stop on our tour, as we’ll be traveling to Claymont, DE in the month of November to attend Thy Geekdom Con 2017. While there we will also be celebrating the 28th birthday of one of the founders of D&A Anime Blog, D.J. “Groundzkontrol” Lewis!

We’ll have more filler posts and more updates coming your way this week on the blog! And as always continue making D&A a part of you, and we’ll continue to make you a part of us! Luv ya! 😉
