Japanese animation shows gained tremendous popularity across the globe, including the Philippines. Many people watch anime because of the unique and interesting plot or story line as well as the artistic character designs of these shows. Animation shows from Japan are widely known for these impressive features. No wonder a lot of Filipinos especially during my elementary years were drawn to iconic animations shows such as Naruto, Yu Yu Hakusho and Samurai X.
Recently, my wife and I have been binge-watching Naruto and Yu Yu Hakusho on Netflix. These animation shows do not just bring back wonderful childhood memories for us, they also teach us the values of persistence, hard work and determination no matter how tough things get. This is what we like most about these animation shows. They always portray a moral lesson that kids and adults alike will learn from.
Both the main protagonists in Naruto and Yu Yu Hakusho display a strong sense of character and fighting spirit. They eventually improved their skills with their strong will power and because of their determination to protect their family, friends and loved ones from harm.
Naruto is one of the most successful anime that launched here in the Philippines. It is loved by so many Filipino viewers. Meanwhile, Naruto Shippuden is a sequel of the first anime of Naruto. This anime shows how the main character saved his dear friend and his village from war and violence. Filipinos really love this anime because of the exciting and emotional roller-coaster ride of Naruto’s journey and how the story is delivered.
On the other hand, Ghost Fighter or Yu Yu Hakusho was another Japanese anime series that became popular in the Philippines during my elementary years way back in the 90’s. The plot follows Yusuke (Eugene), a teenage boy who became a powerful spirit detective through hard work and sheer determination.
Just like the characters in these animation shows, we can achieve whatever we want through hard work and perseverance. If we put our heart and mind into something, we can always improve for the better. By analogy, these values can be applied to studying English. If we are determined to improve more on our communication skills, we will eventually succeed with hard work and constant practice. It would also be best to enjoy the learning process. Englishbuds is thus a very good avenue for students to improve more on their language skills while enjoying their individual likes and interests.
