Profile My name's Rinda, though I'm known to some as Linda or maidenhair. Here, I'm simply Rinda. I live a happy, peaceful life in the mountains. I share that life with a Knight and two scruffy nerf herders. I love to write, watch anime, TV and movies, and read good books and manga. If you hang around here, you'll hear more about those and many other things. What those other things may be...only time will tell.

Peace knowledge encompasses the important concepts of contentment and training. While it can be done to determine schooling being a process of thorough institutionalized transmission of understanding and abilities, together with of basic beliefs and norms that are accepted in a particular culture, the concept of tranquility is less identified. Several writers make an important distinction between negative and positive peace. Bad peace is defined as the lack of largescale bodily violencethe absence of the healthiness of warfare.

Planet Rinda Reboot

I’m not sure that there is anyone out there still reading this blog but, regardless, I wanted to announce that I’m rebooting, restarting, and just generally refocusing this website.  I haven’t posted here in quite literally years.  I’ve been busy living my life, writing and working.  I’m not sure what direction this site will take after this.  It probably won’t be all that different from what it is now.  I simply hate to see it lying dormant and getting musty.  So, my goal is to post something new here at least once a week from now on.  Feel free to poke me if I start slacking off again.  I’ll probably need it!

It’s not easy being a god…seriously!

     Kamichu!- roughly translated this means god who is a middle school student.  It’s also the title of a delightful little anime from Geneon.  The story centers on Yurie Hitotsubashi, a typical junior high student, who wakes up one day to realize that she’s become a god.  It sounds really strange but the story is anything but.  It’s sweet, funny and full of heart.  The animation is gorgeous and the characters, Yurie and her friends from school, are wonderfully real. 

     The artwork as well as the story itself remind me of the works of Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli.  There is a gentle quality to the anime that warms the heart.  Yurie herself is a shy, adorable young girl.  Her best friend Mitsue Shijo is a practical, down to earth girl that always seems to have the best advice for Yurie.  Matsuri Saegusa befriends Yurie once she learns of her new god-like powers.  She and her sister run a Shinto shrine in their hometown.  Her sister, Miko Saegusa, a shrine maiden, is the only one other than Yurie who can see spirits and other gods.

      With the help of her friends, she slowly learns to deal with her new god-like abilities as the story progresses.  She also struggles with more everyday problems that often plague teenagers.  She has a crush on Kenji Ninomiya, the president of their school’s calligraphy club. The problem is that he doesn’t know Yurie’s alive, at least not at first.  Other characters include Yashima, the local deity at Matsuri and Miko’s family shrine.  He helps Yurie adjust to becoming a god while secretly longing to be a rock star himself.  All of the characters are endearing in their own way.  You’ll find yourself being drawn into their simple yet inviting world as you watch.  Kamichu! is one of those rare animes that slip into your heart and win you over without trying.  I strongly recommend this anime to fans of all ages.  It is truly a treasure.

Rinda’s Best of Anime Music Video’s – Part Two

     The second part of my Best Of Anime Music Videos continues by highlighting even more wonderful amvs!  While part one focused more on feel good music, this part focuses on the harder edged music that I love so much.  Each amv listed below combines fantastic music with razor sharp editing and incredible visuals.  These are truly some of the very best!  Enjoy…

Best Of You Amv – This amv is one of the best I have ever seen.  It combines the most amazing assortment of anime with actual band video footage.  It could easily pass for a professional music video.  And the variety of anime used with this amv is staggering.  The editing is dead-on.  It’s just perfect!!

Anime: Various Music: Foo Fighters – “Best of You”

Bleach Headstrong - An action oriented amv that really captures the feel of Bleach. It’s rapid fire editing is well suited to the song and I love the way the amv encapsulates the storylines of several of the main characters as well!

Anime: Bleach Music: Trapt – “Headstrong”

Beck – Linkin Park A Place For My Head – A rocking amv that takes full advantage of Beck’s storyline of struggling muscians trying to break into the business. The lip synching is wonderful. I watch this amv and I’m not sure if it’s Linkin Park that I’m hearing or Beck.

Anime: Beck Mongolian Chop Squad Music: Linkin Park – “A Place For My Head”

Battle Hymn of the Konoha – This Naruto amv is a bittersweet tribute to the Third Hokage and to the village of Konoha itself. It’s a visual reminder of the lengths each of the villagers will go to protect each other and their home. When combined with Flogging Molly’s rousing battle cry, the end result is amazing.

Anime: Naruto Music: Flogging Molly – “What’s Left of the Flag”
