My Favorite (Anime) Things, 2014

Every year, I revisit the lyrics for “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music and revise them to fit the anime I’ve watched and manga I’ve read over the previous years.  I do this just because I like it.  Maybe you’ll like it, too, and do what I do – sing the words below to that favorite holiday tune:

Child recitals by Kousei and Kaori;
Sphinx, bombs, tears, and riddles from Watanabe;
Ko and Futaba riding in blue spring;
These are a few of my favorite things.

zankyou no terror episode 8

Rin and Haruka in the land down under;
SAO 2 wasn’t wholly a blunder;
Return of a female Brittania king;
These are a few of my favorite things.

When Naruto ends,
So does Claymore,
And it makes me sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel so bad.

Announcing a return to Highton View Terrace;
Shinbo’s romcom I certainly did cherish;
One week amnesia and angst it did bring;
These are a few of my favorite things.

Going to the last film by Miyazaki;
Munching on yum treats like mochi and Pocky;
Nisekoi’s OP always makes me sing;
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the season’s bad,
And ClariS disbands,
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel so bad.

  1. yeahhh!!! I was hoping you’d do one of these this year!! so i have a questions. how was blue spring ride? I heard that it was okay from some people, but you obviously thought that it was good enough to include in the song so what did you think? ps ive started melencholy of haruhi suzumiya and i like it so far thanks for the suggestion.

    1. Thanks for the reply!

      I liked it…but less and less so as the season wore on. It was nice to see a shoujo series – I hadn’t watched one quite a while – but it wasn’t GREAT.

      I’m glad you’re liking TMoHS! And a suggestion – when you get to the Endless Eight series of episodes, don’t let them kill your enthusiasm for the series. Do you what you must to make it through (including skipping).
