She lit the first match, and saw her lost motherland;

She lit the second match, and saw its great ideals;

She lit the third match, and saw her motherland’s aerospace pioneers driven by those ideals;

She lit the fourth match, and saw her long dead little sister Buran.

She was afraid that as the matches went out, these dreams would be lost forever; so she lit all she had left wishing that they stayed with her.

In the end, she died with a smile.

No one knows what beautiful scene she saw at the last moment of her life.【22.3.3-4】


This was posted in reddit’s GenZedong from before the quarantine but I’ve never seen anyone post the short story based on The Little Match Girl that accompanied it.

Anime - Socialism with Kawaii Characteristics
Create a post

Welcome to Lemmygrad’s corner dedicated to anime memes! …and more! Like anime discussion! And manga memes! And donghua discussion! And manhua memes! And aeni discussion! And manhwa memes!

Remember to Read the Rules™:

  1. Absolutely no racism, no transphobia, no homophobia, no ableism, no misogyny, none of that!

  2. No low-quality images. Images containing text should be legible.

  3. Please mark spoilers with the prefix “[SPOILER]” in the title of your post.

  4. Please mark NSFW content as such. This does not, however, mean you can post hentai.

  5. Absolutely no NSFW content containing or involving minors will be tolerated.

Please report any posts or comments that are in violation of the rules.


  1. Try to keep it left; memes don’t need to be socialist in nature, but it’d be nice if we could keep the discussions that way.

  2. Posts do not necessarily need to be about anime memes, they can also be about other things related to anime, or having an ‘anime’ art style.

  3. Try to provide sources for the images you post.

  4. There’s nothing else for now. We hope you have a great time!
