Life is but a fleeting Dream

Life is but a fleeting dream. This is a club that celebrates the theme of Mono no Aware in Anime and Manga. What is Mono no Aware you ask. Well....... Mono no aware (物の哀れ?), literally "the pathos of things", and also translated as "an empathy toward things", or "a sensitivity to ephemera", is a Japanese term for the awareness of impermanence (無常 mujō?), or transience of things, and both a transient gentle sadness (or wistfulness) at their passing as well as a longer, deeper gentle sadness about this state being the reality of life. (soure: Wikipedia) The relations list may have anime/manga where Mono no Aware is a prominent theme (Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou) or just glimpses of it (Gunslinger Girl) (The speech bubble on the club photo says "This road seems to have been made for a summer home that no longer exists")

Added Non Non Biyori, Texhnolyze and Katanagatari to the anime relations.

I think I'm going to make a thread where we can discuss titles that either should or shouldn't be on the list.

What about Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita? I know it's more comedic (or rather, satiric) in nature, but I definitaly got that "twilight of humanity" feel that is present in YKK.

Yeah I could see those working as well. When I made the club I just added titles that I could recall on the spot.

From just taking a quick glance at my lists I think for anime Tokyo Godfathers and Ping Pong might fit and Lone Wolf and Cub, Stargazing Dog and maybe Genkaku Picasso for manga.

how about Byousoku 5 Centimeter? or Kino no Tabi

nitrohawk | Aug 5, 2015 7:00 PM
Its not on the list mostly because I haven't seen the movie yet but by reading the synopsis it definitely should be on it.

pretty sure Omoide Poroporo should be included in the list,
