Itazura No Kissu aka Blinded by Love

August 28, 2008


I have been watching Itazura no Kiss and I have to say generally I am enjoying it. It’s not the most amazing Anime in the world but it’s the kind of story that attracts me. Girl loves boy, boy falls for girl with lots of funny stuff in the way. The thing about Itazura no Kiss is that Kotoko (the “heroine”) falls for a total cunt of a boy called Irie. Now you may think I’m being harsh now since he does fall in love her but the problem lies in the fact he is HORRIBLE to her the entire time. Irie already had a superiority complex. He thought he was better than Kotoko because she was dumb, clumsy and airheaded and he was super smart, good looking and good at everything. He totally brushed off when she tried to declare her love for him at school and to be honest we have got furthur into the season and they are married now and he is still treating her like dirt.

The thing is Kotoko should fight. She is being ignored and he treats her so coldly and she should have left him for the dude in her Nursing class. I don’t see how Irie could love her and why she is so defeatest about it. She gives in and blames herself for the fact Irie is so cold with her, she needs to show him that her love is something he has to work for. I hate this wimpy girl stereotype in Animes because it makes me think of girls who I know like that in real life. I know they exist but I want to see gutsy women like Risa in Lovely Complex. She was fantastic, alwas kicked Otanis ass. Kotoko should kick Iries ass so he treats her better. I mean they are married for christs sake! In my opinion Irie, although an interesting twist on the usual male lead, is annoyingl bland and that’s my main gripe with this anime.

Apart from that I’m enjoying it! 😀 Though Chris’ accent REALLY is quite annoying.




It’s All Lies.

So what have I learned from moves/anime/tv about love?

Well the one thing they all seem to have in common is when somoene in them is in Love they don’t give up. They just keep trying and trying till the get the guy/girl they are after. Take Risa in Lovely Complex. She doesn’t give up on Otani even though he rejects her twice. She just says she’s gonna try harder and try her best till he likes her. Then the dudes from Mallrats (I just watched it xD Sorry). They get dumped but in the end win their girlfriends back because they were both in Love and determined. Essentially what I have learned from movies/tv/anime about Love is it’s not that hard work, just you have to stick with it.

Problems are always overcome too. Carrie and Big went through this huge, weird relationship but ended up together because Big finally realised he loved Carrie and went to go get her. Ross and Rachel were destined to be together and how does Friends End? What’s its big finally? Ross and Rachel actually getting back together and being a family with their baby. They all seem to magically overcome their problems and the messed up pasts to just be happy and get on with things. Again Love is Easy, as long as you love him/her you will end up with him/her.


What have I learnt about love from Real Life?

Oh let us see *laughs* I am not a cynic. I do not think love is a joke or fake. I know love is real it’s just not so easy to say “I love so and so and therefore I am going to try my hardest to get them” Why is it not so easy to do that? Because there is this thing called being Desperate which all these films and tvshows and Animes seem to overlook. Rise is desperate and had that been real life Otani would have thought she was weird and clingy and kept hell away from her. You are conditioned into thinking that falling in love is easy. You like someone and they are bound to like you back but the truth is a lot harsher.

I know realtionships are hard work. I know things don’t instantly click into place and as cliche as it sounds I know the best things are the ones you work hardest for and fight for, but just for once I would like everything to fall into place. I think everyone has the right for things to go easy just once in life because to be honest I think it would be nice if everyone got to get love easy for once in their lives. Even if it’s not the love of your life you get wouldn’t it be nice to not have to work so hard at it? Of course I say this and I know that, as I said before, the best things are those you have to work for.

What is the point of this post?
I am unsure.
I just think that Love is harder than it seems.
