Today May 5th, Cinco De Mayo, is Kodomo No Hi (Children’s Day) in Japan. But it is more likely to be known as All Boy’s Day since March 3rd is All Girl’s Day.
And I just ate kashiwa-mochi this morning. It’s traditional to eat kashiwa-mochi on Children’s Day. I feel like I’ve become young forever by eating this mochi. Yes, eternal child or eternal youth, puer aeternus. 17 years old! Puer is “child” in Latin. I want to remain puer forever. And a female form of puer is puella, yes, Puella Magi Madoka Magica!
So, on All Girl’s Day, I did yuri anime top 3. So, what’s a good anime for All Boy’s Day? Kodomo No Jikan? No, that’s about lolicon. The Children’s Hour? That’s a lesbian thespian film. Mmm, can’t think of… Oh yeah, it needs to be BL anime top 3, but I don’t have that with me. So instead, I will pay homage to all the fujoshi around the world by eating kashiwa-mochi! I’ll stretch it from BL day to fujoshi’s day! Salute to their passion!
