I had seen images of her and her show posted around /a/, but something struck me about the fact that it was always the same two images, there were never screencaps, and I saw nobody really ever discuss it but it was often on top ten lists and stuff. So curiosity got the better of me, and last year around the spring time I started watching her anime. I absolutely loved it, it was beautiful and melancholic, there were all sorts of mysteries, and you could feel it was building towards something, but I got to the episode where it really goes down and I just had this feeling that I should drop it. I don't know why, but there was this voice in the back of my head telling me it wasn't the right time to watch it. Funny enough, I found Rakka kind of forgettable. Fast forward to the end of October of this year, and I suddenly get the urge to watch it again, just as out of the blue as the urge to drop it was. I started it over from the beginning and I just immediately fell in love with her, something about her polite nature and loyalty and strong sense of duty just really resonated with me. Then I got to the last couple episodes where the nature of many of the shows mysteries are "revealed" and it really just made a huge impact on me, I could feel it. I don't know, I guess it was just the thought of the world being so cruel to someone so selfless, and my protection instinct just took over and wouldn't let go. I wanted to make sure she knew she was loved and that nothing like that would happen again. I love her.
