I'm new here and just wanted to say hi :)
So how did I get into this fandom? Well, two nights ago, I sent a friend a link to an AMV (this one if anyone cares xD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EV7vrsbWuEs
) and was saying how I couldn't listen to the song anymore without associating it with a character from an anime even though the song and anime bear no relaition to each other. And so she sent me a link back saying that she felt this way too about another song and anime. Guess which vid she sent me?
That's right...Hall Om Mig! ^_^
I'd never heard of Princess Tutu before but I fell in love with it straight away in the AMV and then proceeded to watch the whole series in two days.
Ahhh I really really really want to learn ballet now!! :3 Though I fear it is too late for me. Bah.
Out of interest, what is it that made you fall in love with this show?
It's really hard for me to put this into words, so I'll try my best. I think the only way I can describe the kind of magic I felt from watching this was that I was captivated the air of simple innocence this anime had, that can only be found in fairytales. There was also the bittersweetness that I haven't seen in any other anime, the beautiful artwork, and how this show paid so much homage to classical music. I guess I'm also a sucker for hopeless situations and tragedy, even though it makes me cry (and I think I cried for half of this anime!).
But none of that compares to...dundundun...my explosion of thoughts about Mytho...*squee*!!! Goddamn he is HOT. For me, at the start of the anime, there was something so alluring about the way that Mytho was handled by those around him, as if he was nothing more than a doll. I don't know why but his docileness and his emptiness really caught my attention. And then his transformation in the second half! ...eh, I'm gonna stop now before I get too carried away.
So uh, in conclusion, there was something so surreal about Princess Tutu and I guess I fell under the spell immediately. So, thanks for reading this, and in case you've forgotten what my original question was: what is it that made you fall in love with this show?Edit: Wow, I didn't think I'd receive this many welcomes! Your comments have truly touched me, and even brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for being such a wonderful community, and I look forward to sharing my fanworks with all of you lovely people :)
