I admit to thinking you were funny to describe Amanchu as lesbian divers. But this latest episode brought season 1 Sound euphonium episode 8 feels...
Miyamossan May 10, 8:42 PM
What do you think of the Steins gate reboot? i thoroughly enjoyed Kurisu in the series, only to feel deflated by the special, and so i waffle. Consider it vicariously through your impression :)
Miyamossan May 9, 4:57 AM
You’re making me imagine a wide variety of scenarios...
I hear you, though. When your mouth starts going at a pace faster than your brain is comfortable with, it’s the quiet hours after when you get to ruminate, with your brain unkindly holding up some of the most unflattering moments or impressions, that can make you cringe. I’m not keen on the common sense idea that talking things out eases the sting, so I won’t ask you to relive it by telling me about it — unless you really want to :p
Miyamossan May 8, 5:42 AM
How could that slip of a girl give you traumatic flashbacks? Unless she plays in band, too :P
Miyamossan May 7, 3:47 AM
I am still enjoying this guitar in the ED.
Miyamossan May 7, 3:45 AM
What is Aine?
That's true what you say, that you would think Touko's character in the play would realize she was different around different people. The impression I received was how disturbing this human chameleonism was for the play's characters -- was it the cause of the trauma that led to amnesia? I think there's quite of bit of this "who am i really?" in young adult fiction, and anguish associated, too.
Miyamossan May 6, 6:59 PM
What ending were you thinking made sense for the play's premise? How does volume 4 end? I remember that Touko was starting to have an effect on Yuu (?), is that at the end of volume 4?
I really liked A place further than the universe. I really liked how the four, led by Kimari, were determined to grow in independence as well as friendship. And I really liked that ending theme/guitar.
Miyamossan May 5, 5:00 AM
Hahahahha! Patient yet terse. Love it :)
So, if you found it the same as the last time, I am going to read that to mean you LOVED that the romance got better through volumes 3 and 4. Revisited an anticipatory suspense of the good kind because of the anime announcement :P
Have they performed the original play by the end of volume 4? I liked the swift feeling of the initial chapters, much like you did, but started to notice the inertia when the council members were practicing the play. Did the mangaka handle the threads of Touko's sister and that vice president well?
Miyamossan May 4, 4:25 AM
You're a patient person. It's a brightness to consider that the people around you benefit from that virtue.
How are you doing with your reread of Bloom into you?
Miyamossan May 3, 4:38 AM
You mean that I gave Made in abyss a 10/10? I suppose it is peculiar, since your 10s usually convey re-watch value and recommendability. There are certainly books that i reread or shows that I find easy to rewatch and recommend. Do you give a perfect score for other reasons, though? Made in abyss had this moment that reminded me of what and where the child me wanted the adult me to be -- you know the old stuffy expression, grievous hurt? That's what it felt like to realize the difference. It went beyond sobering, it made me cry. I certainly didn't expect it, I didn't enjoy it, but I respect it.
Land of the lustrous and Clannad After story vibes. It isn't that the plot or characters were similar. Hmmm, sort of this feeling of something just under the surface? No, huh? :P
Miyamossan May 2, 8:23 PM
You understood correctly that I have no interest in watching the next installation of Made in Abyss. Honestly? It hurt a lot to watch it the first time. I doubt that I'd ever be able to watch it again.
The animation was awesome and spectacular in that episode of Land of the Lustrous. The surreal way that Antarcticite would "appear" to advise Phos, at the end of moving liquid lines of the bench where Phos was sitting or from above along perspective lines was pretty cool, too. What do you think? did the series give you Clannad After Story vibes?
Miyamossan May 2, 4:25 AM
Right! I just rewatched episodes 10-12. What did you like about episode 10? I got to revisit the look on Bort's face when Dia fights off Shiro, and the resolve that enters Dia when she remembers the image of Bort walking away. Culminating in her confession that Bort's harsh decision to separate from her was good, because the distance allowed Dia to see how much she meant to her, and Bort's acknowledgement and agreement even as she seems to taste heartbreak with every word and glance. And I'm choosing to use the female gender -- for the yuri!
You're right, of course. About the frustration of not knowing how a series ends. A lot of the better shows "write into" that gap, using the lack of an ending to capture some sense of the unfinished nature of reality, how characters do or don't embrace the challenge inherent in being alive, and the role of faith as the "paradox of existence." I accepted those ideas as being "written into" Made in Abyss and After the rain, even as the anime are inherently incomplete compared to the source materials. and I have no real interest in watching the subsequent episodes, much like I have no real interest in knowing what happens after the "non-ending" of certain films, like Lost in translation.
But a series that finishes telling its story within its allotted episodes is rare. I remember A place further than the universe now; it has that crazy Japanese name that will probably always elude me! I'm resuming it based on your endorsement. That chase scene in episode 2 was terrific by the way :)
Miyamossan May 1, 7:53 PM
Episode 10...can’t remember...
And a place further than the universe. How do I know that name?
Miyamossan Apr 30, 3:40 AM
Well, when you break out Matrix Keanu like that, I feel a little sheepish.
But only for a minute :P
Slow is right. Glacially so. Plus 12 episodes seemed really short, which is why I gave it the score I did. But who can deny that parts of it did make me stop and go, "Whoa." The lead character is a bit of an acquired taste, so I'm glad you're warming to her.
I want to watch Reina in the new side story movie :(
Miyamossan Apr 29, 5:08 AM
...and then there was Antarcticite. The story took on new life when it got to her and to that odd slug creature that explained the genesis and evolution of their planet's life forms. I actually found myself standing on the mat, staring at the screen and paying attention.

I think Reina is the girl who is questioning Nozomi about her flute, practically like a hostile witness, because "I want to hear YOUR sound." I initially could only find the longer preview without subs, so I missed that it was Reina. When I finally found the subbed one and read that line, Ding ding ding! i realized that could only be Reina, even if the animation/character design differed. Who else but Reina would be so endearingly uncompromising about something so...technical? Not, "I want to hear you" or "Tell me about yourself"; who even knows if the spoken Japanese makes that distinction? But in my head, Reina would care about the technical more than the personal, because she's adorable.
