First up for The 12 Days of Christmas: romance moments is Kemono no Souja Erin Episode 35 "A New Life" These 12 Days of Christmas posts aren't in any particular order. I just choose moments that actually made me feel all warm and squishy inside. Be sure to check out animemiz’s scribbling's and Desu ex Machina's blogs for more 12 Days posts! Oh and there might be spoilers about so read at your own risk. For the most part though I think I've kept things as spoiler free as possible. 🙂

 

This show has captivated me all throughout the year. I was scared at first that it was just going to be a boring child plays around with the weird animals type of thing but was pleasantly surprised. Then I feared that Erin wouldn't grow up throughout the anime because 50 episodes is a lot of time to kill. Again surprised. Sure it's a little slow at times but it has never failed to be interesting to me. There is so much to learn about this world Erin lives in and I want to know every single detail. Anyway onto my romance moment.

Who? The beast lords Lilan and Ekku

Why they are adorable: Maybe it's just me but I was moved *almost* to tears by their mating ritual in the sky. The colours, music, and feel were just so right. If I ever have kids I'd want them learn of the birds and the bees like that. Generally anything involving animals in anime have a very good chance of making me cry. It was a shock that something like this was so moving to me as generally crying involves death, not life.

Right down to some lovely sky kissing. Spiderman's upside down smooch has nothing on this! XD

I find myself re-watching this scene a lot and everytime it is so touching. Then again maybe it's because I'm a girl that I enjoyed this so much. I hope others have enjoyed this moment as much as I did. It's one not to miss out on.

    I almost picked this moment to do, myself, but I already wrote a giant post about it after the episode aired, haha. Anyway, Erin is such a wonderful show. I was amazed it had me shipping freaking animals. I’m not sure yet if that is a new low in my life.
