Discovering W.I.T.C.H.




My Personal History of W.I.T.C.H.

In 2001 during the year of the first released issue of W.I.T.C.H., I was a 12 year old girl still in the sixth grade and drawing anime style characters, such as Sailor Moon, terribly (I am self-taught in free-hand drawing and I have never took a drawing class). I didn't know of its existence until I saw a commercial about a new animated series called W.I.T.C.H. on the Jetix channel. At the time I didn't pay much attention to it because I was into "Digimon" ( and still am!). A few months later when it was mid-way through the airing of the first season, I got bored enough to watch an episode. At first, I thought that it was interesting and okay, but I wasn't entire hooked yet. A few weeks later after watching my first W.I.T.C.H. episode on television, my family took me and my younger brother to the nearby bookstore. There, I saw the American (slightly censored) version of the original comic series. At first, I thought that it was one of those silly comic adaptation from the animated series and didn't realized that it was actually the other way around until I did some research. I sat there in the bookstore reading the very first 6 issues compacted into 3 books and immediately saw how much of big difference it is from the animated series. I started to watch more episodes of the series, including the ones that I missed and I started to do some more research on its history. By then, I was officially hooked. I fell in love with its unique ways of story-telling and artistic style and I felt that there was a certain charm to it that I have never felt before.

After waiting months on end for the American released, I got impatient and went online instead. To my luck, I was able to find a gold mine of comic scans online and began to read those instead. After years of reading WITCH, I also began to notice the difference as it transitioned itself from one saga to the next. I noticed the changes in the art styles, then the story-telling, then the entire thing which, I admittedly think, is now crap (the changes, not the entire WITCH universe). What was once a magical experience, I find WITCH now somewhat tasteless and a shell of its former glory. There were some issues that I still think was good, while others were so terrible and childish that it makes me preferred its rival, Winx Club, more than itself (Yes, it's that bad). I am now very disappointed that WITCH isn't as great as it used to be, and I find myself criticizing some of its new issues even more. Some people might ask me, "If you don't like it, then why bother continuing to read it?" My only answer is because I can't find myself to hate it entirely. W.I.T.C.H. has been around for a while and I fell in love with it as a teenager. Although I do find that it lost most of its magical touch, there are still some moments which I thought was wonderful enough for me to continue reading.

After ten years, W.I.T.C.H. has changed greatly, but personally, I still find that it still has that certain amount of charm that I just couldn't discard easily. W.I.T.C.H. comics has been a great inspiration to me in more ways than one, and to this day I am grateful to it. After drawing countless works, I finally made a small switch to WITCH art style. Although not best at first (as I'm still learning) I suddenly find myself drawing my own W.I.T.C.H. fanart calendar series, started my very first fan-comic side story of C.H.Y.K.N. (WITCH's predecessors), and now I'm slowly developing my new idea for a full blown WITCH fan-saga (called WITCH: Dreams of Lusteria)!

Only Yesterday (1991)

:star::star::star::star:



Whenever we hear something about Studio Ghibli, we instantly think of the name Hayao Miyazaki as the master of story-telling. Yet some fans even forget that this wonderful Japanese animation studio has another great master. He may be lesser known than Miyazaki-sama, but his ability to tell stories is nothing short of brilliant. Isao Takahata is one of the studio's co-founders and while his films were released in the United States, people often associated his name with the emotionally heart-aching Grave of the Fireflies. While his other films, such as Pom Poko and My Neighbors the Yamadas got a US DVD released. Unlike Grave of the Fireflies, which has the air and power of a Schindler's List-esque, these two films were more light-hearted and comical.

But then last year, Isao Takahata's name became more well known when Disney translated and released the English dubbed version of his wonderful The Tale of Princess Kaguya. Yet, there was still one more of his film that went unnoticed until now. Only a few weeks ago, Only Yesterday remained the only Studio Ghibli film that hasn't been dubbed by Disney. First released in 1991, this film was based on the manga of the same name and it tells a story about a woman named Taeko Okajima (Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Daisy Ridley), a Tokyo office worker planning to take a 10-day vacation. Her sister's husband owns a farm in Yamagata, and since she had such a nice time there previously, she wanted to visit her distant in-laws again. Throughout her trip, Taeko suddenly remembered her childhood back in 1966 and the audience would occasionally see the young Taeko (Alison Fernandez) in the the 5th grade following her around. Taeko doesn't understand why her mind drifted back to her 11-year-old self or why this 5th-grade version of her followed her to her trip, bot Taeko remembered both the times that were good and bad for her.

Needless to say, Only Yesterday isn't a Studio Ghibli film about fantasy and wonder, not even the kind where children discover wonderful and magical things like in My Neighbor Totoro. But who is to say that Only Yesterday isn't magical in itself? Hayao Miyazaki may be the master of taking his characters' stories off the ground, but Isao Takahata is the man who grounds them and still able to make them interesting. Seriously, this man can even make a scene where cutting a pineapple is interesting in this film! There is even a scene where Taeko is picked up by one of her brothers-in-law's second cousins, Toshio (Slumdog Millionaire's Dev Patel) in Yamagata and they simply talk about life, farming, and harvesting safflowers for nearly ten minutes. While scenes like this may be too slow for children, it is nonetheless quite realistically engaging for older teens and adults to watch.

I'm very surprised that new-coming British actress Daisy Ridley who just made her biggest debut as Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens last month was able to don an American accent for the English dubbed version of this film. Another great surprise is casting Indian actor Dev Patel as Toshio's, Taeko's love interest. Throughout the film, Taeko reminiscent about her childhood in 1966 Japan. Some were quite comical when it comes to dealing with school and family. During that age, the 5th-grade-Taeko was a selfish brat who didn't do well in school and didn't care. But she does care when girls her age started to experience menstruation bleeding and soon found themselves teased by immature boys as they lift up their skirts, demonizing periods as if it were contagious "cooties". However, other flashbacks were quite sad and disturbing as Taeko is slapped by her father, scrutinized by her mother and older siblings (then again, she did deserved it), and is forced to participate in a semi-pro theatrical endeavor by her cold, indifferent, and strict father. We see that her difficult childhood molded her into the adult we see today.

Only Yesterday shows that Studio Ghibli was will into take chances in making a film that went with a much deeper matter than normal magical fantasy. Like The Tale of Princess Kaguya, this film shows how a woman tries to function in Japanese society, all the while trying to discover what she truly wants in her life with breath-taking animation and artwork. While Only Yesterday may have been originally made over twenty-years ago, it's still as fresh as if it was only made yesterday, capturing our hearts. (No pun intended there.) If you cannot find this film in English dubbed, try watching it in its original Japanese with subtitles. I promise it is just as amazing

I appreciate the enthusiasm, but while I do like the Pirates of Dark Water as a child, I'm not really a big fan of this show right now.

So what do you think of the reboot or anime adaption series of Pirates of Dark Water will have new characters? Like for example, one would be Ren's childhood friend and the daughter of Avagon.
