365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 274/365 Gil-son

Day 274/365


From the anime Oseam, Gil-son is a 5 year old orphan and has a blind sister named Ga-mi. Wandering around, not having a home to return to they come across some monks that take them in. Together they start living, learning about life, and the teachings of Buddha. Gil-son goes with one of the monks to a far away temple in the mountains and things change drastically.

Why I like him: He's a fun and carefree boy with a huge heart. He always just wants to play around and goof off. There was something really peaceful and heartwarming about seeing a boy like this. I loved the way he interacted with the oh so serious monks as well.

Why I hate him: I can't hate him but... Scroll over for ***SPOILER*** What happens in the end is just ;_____;

Overall: This movie is one of the 5 anime that have ever made me cry. I think it is the saddest anime I have seen and I don't think I could watch it again. It is based on a novel by South Korean author Jeong Chae-bong. While I would like to read it, I don't think I could bring myself to do so. Seeing was hard enough.
