I wish I listened to your Maison Ikkoku Kanketsu-Hen review & took it to heart. I just got done finishing & writing my review for that movie. I hated it & your review gives me satisfaction knowing I was in the same boat of adoring the original series & feeling like the movie spat in both my face & the face of the TV series.

very nice, Aria with a 10 😃. I may eventually give it an upgrade too

wew, I've definitely never waited that long.

I get the exact inverse of that, like sometimes it feels ages since the last review or the last time I made one that was particularly successful.

Indeed. I used to use the typical MAL categories system, now I flip-flop between shorter, less than 1K words and therefore concise reviews, and larger reviews where I ramble more about specific aspects of shows that demand more detailed explorations for me to get my point across. It's a comination of the brevity of my really early and at this point mid days as well as the length that defined say, the era spanning between late 2016 and late 2017.

You're welcome, and thanks for reading mine. Man, I remember sometimes having drafts sit in the backburner. Sometimes it still kinda happens.

oh god I completely forgot over a year ago you did that piece on Irresponsible Captain Tylor. Has it really been that long?!

Your Eizouken review was a neat read, one I resonated with a few times like how somewhat inspiring it is to see someone with no ability to draw still be an integral part in something she wants to make on some level, though I'd personally take on the writer or director role rather than the producer role myself. The animation is certainly rather vivid and that really does help the showcases where the girls gush about animated visuals. I don't think I loved the show quite as much as you did despite how much it personally resonated with me in ways no other show has, but still. This is def gonna be one of the big titles to beat moving forward this year.

I've been kinda observing your reviews as they've come out, such as the Given review. You definitely seem to be one of the more promising writers to have come out onto the MALsphere lately (huh, seems like you've been at this for a while but only somewhat recently did I stumble upon your works).

sorry for the late reply too, i haven't been on mal much either, how are you and what have you been watching?
emilyluna Mar 7, 4:34 AM
I really related to it in some ways more than others so watching it was a bit painful and I'm grateful such a show exists to show the negative side like you said

After Scums wish I had to take a little break from anime cause it was a lot to handle but Decor definitely gave me closure. Though like you said it was much needed for her to take a break from it all. I'm happy with the Decor ending but even if it didn't exist I knew it would have had to happen for them to mentally heal from it all which can literally take years. Since it does exist I'm happy that it was two years afterward to give them space. I'm sure people got mad by the main ending but that's genuinely a realistic situation, not everyone always ends up together but its at the sake of their happiness. You're right though Hanabi never actually smiled without something pulling her back but at the end it was like she was free ;(

yo thanks for the add hows it going?
emilyluna Feb 19, 1:27 AM
I just finished the anime and I really enjoyed it even though the ending made me really sad. The anime was beautifully well done and it's such a unique series and I feel like it's a one of a kind. Thank you for telling me about the afterward I will definitely read it, I'm hoping it will soothe the pain of finishing the anime ;-;
emilyluna Feb 17, 11:13 PM
Hi i saw your review on the Scum's wish manga and I was wondering if there were any differences between the manga and the anime? I'm currently halfway through the anime and I was curious to know if its worth reading the manga

Very good Given review
YayaBunWa Oct 26, 2019 7:22 AM
Firstly: apologies for the delayed response. Truthfully, I’m a rather flawed and impulsive person—so whilst I was “determined to respond”, it took a fair bit of luck for me to actually ‘do so’. ... Again: sorry. I couldn’t forget everything you said - well, compartmentalised, of course, “as my calendar dictates” - or so my life goes, lmao. (Calendar = god, imo :3 ).

So like...
You know, my gf/wife/long-term-partner (conventional titles never suited us, ...obviously, aha), her arguments were quite strong, but they were certainly flawed. I don’t know you very well, but I’m really appreciative for what you had to say on ‘that romance show that I don’t care to remember the title of - cos it’ll never be brought up by me again).

... So why am I bringing this up? ‘Flattery’ + ‘Dubious Honesty’. In other words: why say this much.

...Simple: [because I love “periods” <3 :3] ... because I haven’t felt as personally moved by someone’s “analysis” since I first started “learning” under my ex. Yes, “learning” is quiet the statement. If it were me, I’d question whether that “learned” person was simply ‘brainwashed’. Sure, it’s not impossible at all that ‘they’ are—but, what you’ve said would “naturally never occur to me”, meaning it isn’t intrinsically linked (what you said) to what I’ve been taught.


........ Why did I preface everything with this? Because: I wanted to make a point of how amazingly independent, original, and enlightened your perspective was ... ‘to me’ (intellectually, I should say, la). I loved your opinion, regardless of everything else. It made me smarter, it made me wiser, it made me more appreciative and proud of this medium I love (the potential of anime, ... that I’d mostly given up on). ... It wasn’t a “positive remark”, sure, but “negative remarks” can be far more conducive to ‘progress’ than “an aesthetic lie”.

... But. Like you said, this point of yours is different to most; when I read it, my first and dictating thought was: “coincidentally, I’ve overlooked what’s important—but, this message of this show is something I’ve seen ‘many times before’ without realising, and this VERY MESSAGE is, “progressively”, ‘women are reliant on the existence of men’.

... I felt so stupid. ‘Why hadn’t I noticed the numerous times before?!’. Thoughts like that. Albeit I felt something off about that show of a chick who ruins her life at the ‘insistence of a dude’, I don’t particularly enjoy having fun at the expense of others - kek, that is when it’s unintentional, :3 soz. I still order how many other shows I’ve been “slow off the mark” with and haven’t dutifully reviewed... Well, it’s hard to “dutifully consider” all that stuff in the past, so I really only mean to bring attention to what YOU’VE taught me - which I’m extremely happy about (even if I’m typing this whilst wasted, ahaha. Like I said: I’m a flawed person, ehehehe). Please do continue to educate dumbasses like me through your insight & prose.

Beyond that: I look forward to seeing everything else you have to say on this site. Thanks for the friendship, and apologies if my response is “bad-shit-crazy” all cos I’m a fucking retard who can’t discipline himself to ‘strictly respond whilst sober/not at fucking midnight’, lmao. Ie though I’m tons more coherent during the day, mid-night me has “no clue about that, so fuck it!”... so to speak. :3 ... Seriously though, please continue to do your thing. It’s wonderful. I absolutely mean that. A

Dude, your review on ‘Midara na Ao-chan wa Benkyou ga Dekinai’, I remember when I first saw it my first thought was “what a stick in the mud”, but I also had an “itch to scratch” regarding this show - one I just couldn’t put my finger on.

... Then I read your review. Amazing perspective, my friend. As soon as I understood what you were angling at, I remembered how I’d go into a “hypnotic day-dream coma” as my brain barraged me with impulses of frustration, contempt for the complacent involved in this character, and how f**king ironic it was that this character was meant to be “COMIC ‘RELIEF’” - ‘cos bull-fucking-shit anything about this abusive, conniving, power-dependent, and child-grooming fuckhead of a father was EVER going to make me anything but furious. No joke, after his introduction, I had to pause and mentally prepare myself for in case the next scene wasn’t ‘Ao murdering her father after having the gall to overstep a family member who he’s basically dependent on like a child and should be easily punished’—and yet, like I expected, “it was just a gag; so why would she actually punish him?”. Well, we were meant to interpret it that way (haaah, tbh, sadly I sometimes wonder if I’m giving the writers too much credit in cases like this and that they simply have no ducking idea what they’re doing thus DEFINITELY didn’t think about this message), but the only message I got was that ‘Ao can not punish her father - for one speculative reason or another - thus the “dependent dad” premise is a ruse for outsiders, and he’s really proactively attempting (and succeeding) to/in dominating her’ - so instead of her being a ‘caretaker’, she’s a ‘slave’.

Honestly, because they did the basic math of “man-phobic girl + platonically-dedicated boy = opportunity @ ‘new chance’/...normality(?)”, I successfully disillusioned myself as I genuinely enjoyed half the scenes if I didn’t take ‘implications’ into account—but the fact that the key junctures of said “implications” cough context cough, were all scenes where I paused the show and had to walk away for a while till I could purposefully ‘forget’ the meanings that I was sure the authors didn’t intend to implicate, is a huge damn fucking flag of nogood.exe. I’m a little upset at myself, I’m fact, for needing your review to connect the dots of my irritation - not to mention that my “irritation” holds no relevance to anything outside my own agenda, ie the message about ‘female independence “being a lie”’ isn’t something I’d notice outside of a ‘good day’, so I’m very grateful I stumbled upon this “stick in the mud”. :3

In the end, I’m not quite sure how to feel about how I could get past this extremely significant issue - even if I’m happy that my assertion of the father was spot-on - but I’m willing to accept this time that I needed help and am imperfect. That is: I’m glad you wrote your review. My faith in this stuff dropped significantly after a lot of “pseudo-rises” that I’m now aware I’ve been misappraising. That is: I can see my focus has changed a lot as well as subconscious priorities over the past few years, and this... in my own image, it is not acceptable. So, once again, thank you for this coincidental opportunity. You’re very perceptive, and well-spoken & bright. Thanks to you, I’ve got some self-reflecting to do, haha. Whatever drove you to identify and pronounce the fouls of this series, I hope you continue to devote yourself to the complacency deserved of all people, as well as the abuse of, well, “male gaze”? This is easily misunderstood here, but I’m quite the supporter of ‘male perversion’ when it’s healthy and doesn’t encourage horribly violent or perverse acts without making it clear whether the depiction is fantasy or nonfiction; that is, like you said, the acts of the father are meant to be “comedy”, and when you shift that perception ‘1 degree of rationale’, it’s still somewhere in the “harmless fun” category. “Is it perverse hyperbole? If not, then is it satire of hyperbole? It isn’t referential, so is it just a gentle but misguided dad?”, its self-awareness is 180 degrees out, meaning it can only be received as ’not dissuading itself’. Really, because it makes no attempts at addressing his behaviour as ‘poor’, there’s zero enlightenment to the depiction - meaning the audience has to either take it as ‘realistic but funny’, or ‘unrealistic because (would be) misunderstood if true thus not sanely possible [stock laughter]’, which either way just asserts that his domination of Ao is acceptable.

Anyway, apologies for the wall of text. Obviously I really appreciated your review, so please take care and write many more when you feel that ‘the status quo’ is letting down a good portion of the people, aka not just men la. ~Take it easy~
