Homura is a silent and secret character – because only she knows the secret of the world and from her previous experience, she believes that no one will trust her even if she tell the truth. So in the video, she kept silent and only a part of the face is shown.

Her power is to freeze time, so I used the ticktock sound to give the audience a feeling of time lapse – when the ticktock sound stops, the time is frozen.



The ranking on my name list is based on how much these characters have influenced me.

Fictional Figures

1. Homura Akemi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)

She is weak. She has just left the hospital. But she is also strong. She can freeze the time for battle, and even replay a month for millions of times – just to find a perfect timeline where her best friend can survive.

She gives up her spirit to get the power to go to the past for saving her friend. She kept the secret of the world as well as the pain it brings I am deeply touched because of what she has done for her loved one.

2. Kurisu Makise (Steins;Gate)

For me, she is the fictional version of Madame Curie. She is clever and mastered in her field. She can use her intelligence to save people around her. At the same time, she can enjoy life and love.

3. Akane Tsunemori (Psychol-Pass)

She is strong mentally. Even after the criminal killed her friend in front of her, she can still stay calm and clear. At the same time, she is kind. In the society where the police have the right to kill anyone who is recognized as criminal by the Psycho-pass system, she is still trying to save them. Also, she is brave. She has the courage to challenge the ruling party when she believes they are doing harm to the society.

4. Sakurako Kujou (Sakurako-San no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru)

5. Mikasa Ackerman (Attack on Titan)

Public Figures

  1. Madame Curie
    Her desire towards knowledge has encouraged me a lot. And she has made me know that a lady also can do well in what she is interested in.

2. Xi Jinping

He is kind and willing to know what the public is thinking. On the other hand, he is very respectful to his wife. He is the only chairperson in China who holds his wife’s hand when alighting from the aircraft.

3. Lang Ping

4. Zhang Haidi

5. Liu Hulan


Real-life figures:
1. My songwriter

She lets me know how perfect can a twenty-year-old person be.

She is hard-working and well self-disciplined. She self-learnt music composing and successfully shifted her college course from an unrelated course to music study. Her experience encouraged me a lot.

And that is why I am now studying in this course.
2. My mother

She is just like my grandma – hard-working and strong. She is the leader of her department and also my family. She raised me and send me abroad to study by herself. Also, though she had experienced over ten years’ harsh time, she still teaches me to be kind and happy.
3. My grandpa
4. My secondary English Teacher
