Happy New Year everyone
It is now my fourth year of blogging, I have been busy this year. I graduated, and I am a working adult now. I have had a rough time with family issues and an identity crisis, but I think I have things under control now, but I Know I have a long road ahead of me, but I want to continue blogging and talking about anime, manga, and games. I will try to write more post and feature more of sensei on this blog.
At the moment, tanteikid94 has a lot of planning and things he needs to do so he won’t have a clear idea of what he wants to for the blog as he is lazy. He is still a work in progress and still has a lot of things need to do for 2019.
The new year is important in Vietnam as well, but not as important as the Tet holiday, which is the 5th of February this year. We will get together with families to share big feasts and visit the main house or in some cases like Japan visit the temples. Within the anime community, there will be drawing their own content to share on Twitter.
As 2019 is the Year of the Pig according to the Chinese zodiac, many of the greetings feature boars and piglets. Last year was the Year of the Dog, so you may also see references to dogs making way for the new animal of the year. Pig has been a big part of anime with characters like Oolong from DB Botan ( Clannad) or Hawk, and His mother from Seven Deadly Sins.
Pigs are amazingly caring and hardworking. They are not lazy as or dirty as often portrayed. The Pig is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) hài (亥), and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth. Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well.
