Oh no, I am getting vibes that are classic and horrible wisdom tooth pain; unfortunately, the only remedy for that is surgery. I hope I am wrong on this one though. It sucks to hear that it hurts so much you stopped doing something you liked so much. Tooth pains are the worst, I sympathize with you a lot on that.
I appreciate that a lot, and I feel the same regarding your previous message; I have no issues with you replying late at all, I don´t feel offended, and I like talking to you so will always have a reply if you send a message hahaha.

I still remember the feeling that an earthquake was on the way while staying in my brother's apartment; which is sad because I love visiting his city since it has a lot of everything at reasonable prices.
It sucks when an earthquake finds you speeling; is usually one of two, waking up as soon as possible to run, or to stay in bed until is over or you are dead. Is weird how sometimes the earthquakes are noisy but they aren´t that strong, and other times they don´t make that much sound and end up being nearly cataclysmic. How strong was it?

Husband Material looks so amazing, but I haven´t found a copy at a reasonable price.
Typical mom, you can count on them but can trust them a secret hahaha. Maybe she does have secrets she is not ready to tell, or that she hasn´t realized yet. Still, the decision to come out depends only on you; so whenever you feel ready, go for it.

I am not going to lie, I hate when everyone is described as so hot/handsome/beautiful to the point they have no rival; yet, the characters on Shadowhunters are so well written and nice you forget everything else. I am currently on the final book of The Infernal Devices trilogy, and although it was annoying how one of the MCs described how beautiful he was in almost every chapter, the interactions and well-written plot make you forget that.
I really want to buy all the books and complete the franchise hahaha; it´s been hard to find the version I want though, and the page where I bought my books hasn´t had discounts in quite some time.

Really? I honestly feel Brooklyn 99 was amazing from the very beginning; there are some episodes I enjoyed the most, but overall I don´t think it has a bad episode. Still, I agree with you that it just kept getting better and better. Rest in Peace Andre Braugher, it was too soon for you.

I am not that aware of who designed the characters, but I would dare to say Overtake was one of the hidden games of the past season; something weird is that there was something that didn´t click with me, and I just couldn´t give it a 10. Still, I consider it one of the series that can balance perfectly well drama and sports, so I recommend you to watch it.
I understand what you mean by having to make things "softer" since there are thousands of anime viewers who are just starting, and they would not survive the craziness and toxicity of several older adaptations. Still, I am very happy that every day there are appearing more viewers since back in the day anyone who enjoyed anime was either bullied or labeled as a geek. Still, I understand your point since I saw a meme comparing the manga Berserk vs the 2016 anime adaptation of Berserk, and the censorship was pretty evident.

Hahaha, is funny how Hollywood is foreign for almost everyone but nothing realizes it. Back to the topic, aside from Hollywood, I enjoyed the British show Derry Girls; I love how most of the actors were almost 30, and they still looked and acted like teenagers, unlike American shows which portray teenagers as nearly perfect, with amazing bodies, and a lot of freedom. I never heard of Portrait of a Lady on Fire, I am going to check what it is about.
I have heard of Orphan Black, but I never watched it; is funny when shows and movies end up having a perspective not even the directors saw, like with the movie Luca.

I know, the resemblance was uncanny; it is weird how much people make fun of Asians for looking "similar" when there are so many actors and actresses that share the same face. Jamie Presley, from the list before, has acted for quite some years, and Margot Robbie looks a lot like a young Jamie Presley.
Indeed, lookalikes between famous people are very common, not even live ones, but the death ones as well; for instance, William Shakespeare was married to a woman named Anne Hathaway, and the current actress named Anne Hathaway is married to a man who looks strikingly similar to the death poet. Back to the topic, maybe the studio wants to find someone who can fit the role in case they need the younger version of a popular actor or actress. Still, it sucks when those on screen are so similar to one another. I don´t tend to watch films, whereas anime or live-action ones, but I want to check Grand Guignol to see what you are saying hahaha.

I am not going to lie, regarding Chainsaw Man to this day I don´t know if the hype for the franchise was real or ironic. About Jujutsu Kaisen, I would say we all have different tastes, and even though I enjoy that anime a lot, I know what it is like to feel something is lacking.
Today I dropped my fifth anime: Ragna Crimson. I liked Crimson a lot, but Ragna as a character was an unlikeable cliche; he was the typical overpowered MC with several girls falling for him, but he was just so boring and annoying.
I never heard of Black Guard before, but you sold it to me with the -many characters were LGBT, and treated completely normally- part; I checked and it isn´t very long, so I will try to read it as soon as possible.

Not to be offensive, but I remembered that final scene in Zankyou no Terror when Nine asked the other characters to remember he and Twelve existed. I am very sorry for your grandmother, especially the part where you need to look at her belongings to remember her; it must hurt to remember the good times just to realize they are never coming back. Sometimes that happens to me when I remember the last Christmas and New Year I spent with my paternal grandmother when she was alive, and then I feel a bit nostalgic.

I am currently in the chapter of Kimi ni Nidome no Sayonara wo, and I love how crazy it gets every time; I hope Hinata can reach a happy ending because so far Sora is way too traumatized.
Speaking of Hikaru ga Shinda Natsu, I saw the other day that there are already three physical books of the manga released; I love the colors used for the volumes, and I plan to buy them someday if the story doesn´t disappoint me like others I bought in the past. As far as I know, is true most manga are set in bigger cities, or with adults in rural areas; yet, mixing everything with teenagers makes things a bit more complex since they aren´t that open or strong enough to face backlash or criticism. Moreover, we are talking about a human a boy, and a creature becoming closer, with one being dragged into the other's world quickly, and the other catching strong feelings. If a gay couple in that sort of environment comes out it would be hard to receive support, but now is way harder considering one of them is truly a strange creature nobody knows a thing about in a relationship with a local boy who doesn´t know much about himself or that world he was dragged.

It is way too hard to let go of that pain; I feel the best thing we can take from that is to treat others nicely and not do what others did to us. Yet, sadly, there is no reason why we suffer that much sometimes, and trying to give meaning to pain can be exhausting after a while. At the end of the day, we all deal with that in our own way.
I understand that feeling; like disconnecting yourself from the world for some time just to think, that's all; not thinking about the current wars, about the future, or about your problems, just randomly thinking, and that's all. I am not going to lie, I would not know how to call it.

I am aware the manga of Devilman is amazing and has some very gruesome and vile things portrayed with that old and appealing art style; but I don´t want to start reading it as of now, maybe in the future.
Just Disney being Disney; they can produce a movie with a black main character saying how slavery wasn´t so bad, but having a gay couple is too much. Netflix may have quite some issues, but at least they dare to try new projects. I lost my respect for Disney quite some time ago, and with all the pain in my heart, I am considering paying an account on Disney+ just to watch the Simpsons, Bob´s Burgers, and Family Guy.

Again, don´t worry about it; I can wait for a reply when you feel ready :)

Just eating good food on your birthday constitutes a lovely celebration in my book hahaha.
My Christmas was OK; I celebrated with my family, and not to brag, but I have amazing gifts this year hahaha. My New Year was a bit crazy, yet we ate very few dishes this year, so I can´t complain.

I know is late, but I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, I hope you had a nice one. Also, Happy New Year, I wish you a wonderful 2024 alongside your loved ones :)

Hello, I want to wish a happy birthday! I hope it was a wonderful and enjoyable day; sorry for being late. Still, I hope you had a happy day C:

I think I said this before, but I will repeat again: don´t worry at all about replying late. I like talking with you a lot; I know you are busy, but I can patiently wait for your reply. Hence, I don´t mind waiting a little bit since I know you have a tight schedule to follow.
Work and going to the gym are important things to do; don´t leave them for later since one gives you an income and the second one can help a lot with physical and mental health. I am also been busy answering messages lately due to stress and anxiety due to something in real life, and I have left some people without a reply for quite some weeks.

Yeah, the anxiety during that trip was never experienced before hahaha; I mean, I usually feel very anxious and nervous when traveling, but my last trip was really a mentally exhausting one, which I hate because I also enjoyed it. Are you kidding me? That sounds horrible; I am sorry everyone called you stupid just because you didn´t ask something, that sounds very unfair.
On the Richter scale, I would say it was 5.5 maybe; it wasn´t that strong, but since I felt when started until it ended I couldn´t keep it out of my mind, that night I couldn´t sleep as much as I tried. Thank god there weren´t any aftershocks; I was staying on the 22nd floor, so going out was not a possibility hahaha.
I just saw the cover of Husband Material on Google and looks so good; was it good? Oh my God hahaha, that is so funny; did you tell your mom it wasn´t about that?
I bought Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy at a very reasonable price, and it was as hard as I remembered hahaha. I was looking for the books of the franchise The Shadowhunter Chronicles, but I didn´t have good luck; nevertheless, I bought two at a remarkably good cost, a hardcover version of A Clockwork Orange, and Miso Soup.
Some weeks ago it was fairly warm, and some days were utterly hot; yet, at night the temperature fell underground and it has been extremely cold, and during the weekend rained a lot, which is weird for an October where I live.

I know, people made a huge fuzz out of nothing; it didn´t hurt to have a black Ariel at all. If the mermaid population is mad, they should talk about it. Still, from what you told me about Disney and their agenda of calling racist anyone who didn´t like their changes, I don´t support anything they produce. Nonetheless, I command Halle Bailey to stand for another actor who has the same condition as her of having their eyes a little far from one another; in my book, she is a great person.
Talking about Netflix, since I have a bit of free time lately, I watched some sitcoms available on the platform; Brooklyn 99 has to be one of the greatest sitcoms ever made. Moreover, Community is one of the darkest sitcoms; I love the undertones that show how lonely and sad the main characters are.
I´ve seen the manga of Bokura no Micro na Shuumatsu appearing in my feeds sometimes; it is nice to hear its Live Action adaptation was remarkable. This season is a weird mix of amazing anime adaptations, and very weird ones as well. The original anime I am enjoying the most now is Overtake!; is a spokon based on Formula 1 racing cars. I proved one of my theories regarding the hate the MC, who is a photographer, suffered in his past.

I must say that, while not a masterpiece in my opinion, it was an excellent movie in my opinion; I liked the existentialism was portrayed, as well as the jokes and the way sometimes it hit close to home. Interesting, which foreign feminist movies would you say were nicely done?

I am not going to lie, I never considered that point before, and I think you are right. All the characters who have appeared, and are relevant for the story, have completely different powers. I feel the schools in that universe mainly focus on teaching them how to control them and use them for the best of society, though teachers are very laid back in that area.
Hahaha, I know what you mean; I just saw a meme about actresses who are very similar to one another. Such as Emma Mackey, Margot Robbie, Samara Weaving, and Jamie Pressly; a picture of the four of them together showed how physically similar they are.

Since I think their target audience is kids and teenagers, and several adults, I feel is normal to have their stories having the MC fulfilling his dream after defeating the main villain. Nevertheless, I do consider authors should take more risks, like what is happening with Jujutsu Kaisen and Chainsaw Man, where no one is safe. I think there are LGBT+ characters, but lesbians are used for fan service, while gay characters are stereotyped and used as comic relief. Interestingly, trans characters are treated more seriously.

God, I know what you mean; is so weird that sometimes the last time you see someone can be actually the last time you see them. I guy from my college who I spent some time with, though I wouldn´t say we were friends, died last year; as I said, we hung up together, and remembering he is no longer here is shocking. The saddest part is how young he was.

I am not going to lie here, I didn´t expect Kimi ni Nidome no Sayonara to go so dark; I was expecting MC to learn his school friends weren´t that innocent, but Sora being such a twisted kid is something that completely shocked me. I just read chapter 10, which I didn´t know was out, and it was mindblowing again; I swear I don´t know what is happening right now or how this is going to end.

I haven´t read the manga or watched the anime, but I am aware of Yotasuke, and I also ship him with Yatora hahaha; so, you aren´t alone on that one. I also know about Ayukawa and the domestic violence they suffered at home at their dad´s hands; it was very painful to watch it.

I finished Bojack Horseman during the pandemic, and what you say makes sense; the character Diane, who was heavily abused and bullied by her family, was trying to write a book of short essays but was unable to even start, while the franchise she wrote about a little girl who I think was a detective was a success. I recall that episode because she talked about how hard it was to let all her suffering go because she wanted it to have a meaning, otherwise it was only pain that didn´t help her at all. I hope I expressed the idea right; it is difficult to let some emotions go.
What type of tests can show if you have ADHD? Try having a final conversation and explain your reasons, and if you see nothing happens then go with what you have to do. If you think you may have ADHD then I think that means something; the amount of people past their 20 and 30 who are just learning now they have ADHD, as well as a degree of autism for instance, is way bigger than I thought.

I know, I don´t want people to know it either; I like reading BL, but there is a difference between the amount I say I read and the real deal. I told my cousin I have a MAL account and she is planning on making one for her, but I didn´t tell her my name here because I don´t want anyone to know I write reviews hahaha.

I must say I didn´t enjoy Devilman Crybaby the way I expected; it was too much like a hentai for me. It did have some good episodes, but I wouldn´t say it was a masterpiece.
I almost forgot about Nimona; thank you for reminding me I need to watch it.

Again, don´t worry about replying late; I am happy to read your message and hear of your updates. I hope your work can get better with time, but if it gives you time to listen to a podcast then enjoy it as much as you can hahaha. That is a question everyone asks themselves, how can some people survive by working, studying, and going to the gym at the same time? Maybe we will never know hahaha.
I hope this message finds you well C:

S2 was just as good, every episode ended on a cliffhanger XD But also the finale… like excuse me o.O

Hope you’ve been well!

In my case, I got anxious over everything, and it did not help that on our second-to-last day, there was a quake that triggered my anxiety; I was able to keep myself at ease, but I just wanted to leave. I felt really bad because my brother invited my nephew and me out of goodwill, but traveling is not for me at all. Although I can´t complain everything was bad, I had a lot of fun on my last day, and I even bought some interesting books. Plus, my nephew and I were able to buy video games we wanted to play at a cheaper price at an interesting place my brother brought us.
I have been very prone to get sick these past few years; sometimes I get a cold and it last for more than one would expect. Hence, I will wait for the weather to stabilize a bit before starting to work up; I hate hot weather in my life, but I enjoy sometimes exercising a bit.

All I know about Halle Bailey is thanks to Wikipedia; according to Wikipedia, she was Beyonce "Protegée". I think she signed with a record and has some other TV and movie performances, but I am unsure of their names.
I think it would have been fun, I don´t know that much about Drag Queens, but I do know they can be entertaining and stylish. I think in my country there was a short-lived Drag Race, yet the amount of people who follows and watch the original version and their varied spin-offs is huge; the fandom for that series is very broad.
Well, I haven´t watched it and I have a lot on my plate right now, but I can say that Yasuke-Mecha anime sounds original.
I forgot which clip was it; I saw it on Instagram and I cannot find it, nor I can remember it.
I have heard many good things about Orphan Black, sometimes I get tired of anime and just binge-watch some series with human characters hahaha; is it on Netflix?
By the way, I went to see the Barbie movie some weeks ago with a friend; at first, I thought that it was ok, but not the perfect movie. But now I see some explanations for certain scenes and I now realized how well thought and written that movie was. I have to say at first it was so surreal, and it didn´t help that I was a bit drunk when we arrived at the movies since we were drinking prior to it; for a second I thought did I passed out and I am dreaming this or is this for real?

I understand what you mean by him being a hero without power, but at the end of the day I feel that one of the plot points for the series, that could have been better implemented, was how in a society where everyone has powers they aren´t equal at all; and, the ones without a power are deemed as worthless. Now that I think about it, if that plot was explored a bit more maybe Midoriya obtaining a power to protect the ones who don´t could have been more interesting; especially because later on in the story there was a short-lived plot about some individuals who were discriminated because of their powers altering their appearance.

To give the story some points, the art is beautiful, and the author has some very good ideas for creating magic never used before in other stories. Yet, he doesn´t takes risks at all.

Personally, I missed the chance to have meaningful relationships with the people I shared common interests to spend time with the people who went out every weekend to a party; right now I am not close to anyone I hang up with, and is a bit lonely, to be honest. I also had the same issue about talking about stuff I liked, for instance, anime which I started watching in high school because I saw in first person how classmates and teachers alike made fun of someone who loved anime. I am very glad to know you were able to reconnect with people from your past and form newer friendships with them; I am kind of jealous right now hahaha, still, I am very happy for you.
I have seen that as well, don´t worry hahaha. It is funny because I went out, and I am related to as well, to people who were savage in their teenage years and now they pray every day and comment how everyone else is going to hell.

Yes, Three Exorcism Siblings is written by a BL manga author; I also got similar vibes about the art when I first read the manga hahaha. I love the relationship the younger two have with their older brother, and how much they care for each other. I hope it gets an anime adaptation.
To be honest, when I saw the cover of the manga I actually thought it looked like a hentai. I love the focus of the story on a boy being a victim of SA by an older woman, the after-effects of rape, the support system MC has, and the reactions others have because of the situation; nevertheless, there is something in the story that is not clicking with me, and I don´t understand what is it.

A Second Goodbye To You is getting darker and more mysterious in every chapter; I swear every new chapter Sora gives vibes he went inside the wall willingly and killed himself.

I have heard some complaints about Blue Period animation and how it felt underwhelmed in comparison with the manga. Someday I have to remove Blue Period from the On-hold section. I read the first three chapters, which I enjoyed quite a lot; Yatora was a very interesting MC.

I am planning to go again since I found the roots of my anxiety, and also how generalized it has been since I was a kid. But, I have to say I have been doing a bit better now.
That is something I realized some weeks ago, I have had anxiety way earlier than I thought; it is weird how the brain works, to be honest.
I know, that small homework took the power of several instances completely. I still used it to this day, but more mentally than written.

I completely understand what you mean, I also try to avoid giving my country's name in comments, although I have leaked it quite a few times hahaha; yet, I don´t think anyone I know in real life actually has a MAL account. Recently a cousin and her boyfriend learned I had an account on MAL and got interested in creating some of them to talk with other people and practice English.

I am not an emotional person either, and I even have a very emotionless face hahaha; yet, I can´t give an opinion since I haven´t read the book yet. Sometimes I also wonder why some characters in movies, cartoons, TV shows, and anime cry so easily; The Legend of Korra is an example, everyone was crying and hugging in every episode, it was very wholesome most of the time but still a bit funny after a while.
I was recommended to watch Nimona some weeks ago stating how good it was; I recently got into Netflix again because I am watching Devilman Crybaby, so I think I am going to give it a chance since I have some free time at the moment.

Don´t worry, I am thankful to receive birthday messages; thank you a lot for making the time to reply, I really appreciate it. I hope you are doing fine after the incident that overwhelmed you :)

Hahaha, don´t worry about it; I was the same until yesterday. I wasn´t able to answer as many messages as possible since I was on a trip with my older nephew. I am not a fan of traveling at all since it gives me a lot of anxiety and stress. I am glad to hear you get a job, I hope it has a nice working environment. I want to start exercising as well, but it has been so cold lately that I don´t find the strength to do it hahaha.

I know I wish there was a way for messages to keep inside the system instead of getting deleted forever; I now keep a record of them just in case of another incident.

I agree, since it is a kid's movie I don´t feel there is a real reason for grown-ups to attack the movie so viciously; I have some reservations regarding certain aspects of the movie, but since several times I saw how talented Halle Bailey was, and how her voice was able to reach the movie songs, I did not feel there was a reason to hate her so much.
It would have been interesting to see a drag queen portraying Urusula if I am being honest; I love Melissa McCarthy a lot, and even though I haven´t seen the movie yet, I know how talented she is. I have a friend who loves Drag Queens, and I am sure that if I ask her she is going to give me immediately a name for the role hahaha.
I haven´t watched How To Train Your Dragon either so there isn´t that much that I can say about it.
Are you kidding me? I mean, I am sure I saw somewhere a trailer about an anime based on Yasuke, but I did not think it was something in the mecha genre. The last time I saw Yasuke was in a tournament manga where he is set to fight in a future match.
At this point I believe every little rumor and gossip, as stupid as they can be, about Disney; I don´t know why, but after seeing a clip from Zack and Cody, which was a show I deeply enjoyed as a kid, my dislike towards the company just grew.
Just reading your comment about the She-Hulk series made me hate them even more now. I read that the series wasn´t going to have a huge budget for special effects, so I knew the show was not going to be that good; but still, it takes a new special kind of stupid to say that a green-colored white woman was a proper display of POC. I looked up for the actress, but I don´t recall seeing her anywhere before.

I have a soft spot for Midoriya; he is nowhere near being my favorite MC at all, but I still think the hate he receives is way too much. I agree to disagree about his powerups; I mean, he worked his ass off to receive a Quirk, he was able to prove wrong everyone who bullied him, and right now is the only one who has to have the capacity to control the powers of his predecessors.
In spite of everything I wrote before, I wholeheartedly agree that Boku No Hero disappoints me as well; the art is uncanny, but the author introduced some plots way too late, is trying to evangelize villains indiscriminately, and is too afraid of killing characters.

Another manga that disappoints me a lot is Black Clover; I like the story and the main group or in this case squad. The only thing that ruins the story for me is Yuno. I think I mentioned this before, but I want to use the instance to state again how much I dislike Yuno; at this point is a bit shameless how many powerups he receives.

I don´t remember very much about that; I think I am going to look up a video on YouTube or something to remember it.
I am the same, even though I like the trope of childhood friends to boyfriends, I ship and like Kazuki and Tooi way more.

The fun part is that there were way crazier and wilder schools in my city. There is a chance of that, if you have the chance ask a classmate or someone you still talk to from school. To be honest, one of my biggest regrets in high school is not hanging up with people I shared interests with; instead, I went out with a group that enjoyed partying every weekend. There were some good moments, but I still wish I made more meaningful relationships.
Mine is a mix of two sides; half country acts prudish, and the other half follows the YOLO lifestyle.

I haven´t been able to buy the book yet; I am currently reading some of the books, manga, and Ligh Novels I bought before. I now reading Magical Girl Raising Project, which is way better than the anime.
I am going to add it to my wishlist to buy it later on; it really calls my attention and I want to see what it is like.

By the way, I have been reading manga that I think are pretty interesting and enjoyable.
The first one is Three Exorcist Brothers; is about three brothers that work as exorcists, while the oldest realized he can transform into the monsters he was killing for a long time, his youngest brothers were tasked to train in order to kill the oldest of he goes out of control. Although the story reminds me a bit about Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan, it is still very sweet to see the relationship between those three brothers. Plus, it has some very good designs and plot twists.
The second manga is Sensitive Boy; the story follows a boy who was raped by his female teacher in middle school and develops a trauma from women he doesn´t know. I have some mixed feelings towards this one, to be honest; I don´t know where the story is going at the moment, but I am still intrigued by all the characters. I just love how supportive the MC's best friends are.

I am glad it received more recognition; I lowkey want to buy the physical volume, but I am waiting for the number of chapters to increase.
Hahaha, read when you can; so far I think there are only five chapters of Kimi ni Nidome no Sayonara available, and one of them is a special chapter instead of a one with plot.
Read Chapter 3, I am not going to spoil anything for you, although I don´t have a clue of what is happening right now; Sora, the boy who was killed in the past, feels like the kind of character who can make enemies easily, hence I think he makes himself enemy with the wrong person. I also suspect the clumsy teacher and the cheerful club president.

My Home Hero? Yes, it is already over. Although I read the manga is very good, I don´t think the anime is likely to receive a second season. There were several complaints regarding the art style, animation, and even the soundtrack. I think it was a good anime, but again I don´t think it was popular enough to increase manga sales.
Blue Lock has it dose of funny moments, but it is true that it is one of those stories that makes small things sound as serious as government meetings.

I haven´t played the game yet, so I cannot talk about it. Although I hope you are right, I like empowering LGBT moments in the mainstream.

I am planning to return to therapy as soon as possible; on this trip I did I realized that my anxiety has been present for more time than I initially thought. I am glad you did not hear those relatives' words; usually, the people who make fun of the ones who go to therapy need more therapy than the ones who go.
A homework I remember was writing down the moments that made me angry, sad, or anxious; after writing them down I read them and realized they weren´t as powerful as I thought.

How horrible; good luck handling the hot weather. I hope you can go to a pool or do something refreshing.
Really? I am not going to ask from which country since I know some people don´t feel comfortable saying it, including me.

I watched a trailer from Aristotle and Dante, and it looked interesting; I saw on Wikipedia that it is based on a book and I am now planning to buy it. On the contrary, although I know about the book Red, White, and Royal Blue, I wasn´t aware it received a movie adaptation; I am going to watch the trailer to see if the book calls my attention.
Hazbyn Jun 4, 2023 7:19 PM
Oh my god, that exact same thing happened to me during the hacking incident. The night the attack happened I answered several messages I had, then MAL went down, and when it was available again all the messages I answered were deleted. Hence, I understand your frustration completely.

I know, I have avoided some family interactions because my older brother starts criticizing the movie; he starts saying is forced inclusion, and when he tries to explain it to me I immediately answer he is not going to change my mind. I want him to bring it up again to ask him about what the mermaid community thinks.
Since Ursula was based on the drag queen Divine, I think a part of the fandom wanted to see her being played by a Drag Queen. I understand that a little bit, but I think it would have ignited even more controversy.
I agree with that, especially if they are movies based on historical figures from older times. I read on Facebook the other, confirmed today, that the movie How to Train Your Dragon is going to receive a Live Action; and, fans are already complaining that the character Astrid, who is a blonde and blue-eyed white character, will be played by the actress Nico Parker. I don´t know about race in the Viking period, so I am not able to give a proper opinion. Nevertheless, as far as I am aware, the movie was already very inclusive with a strong female lead and even gay characters.
I think Disney and Dreamworks can make some amazing movies based on Youkai stories; or in Asian countries at least. The amount of mythology out there that can be adapted into movies for the Western world is huge. I feel the story of the African samurai Yasuke can turn out into an amazing movie.
By plagiarism with The Lion King, are you talking about Kimba? I remember that little white lion, I think I even saw some episodes of that anime. I did not know that there were accusations of plagiarism whatsoever, I read a little bit on Wikipedia and it is funny how Disney refused to acknowledge the accusations by saying they never heard of Kimba before Lion King. I know there were some accusations against Walt Disney for homophobia and that even an actor was fired when it was discovered he was gay, but I would like to hear more about using actors of color to defend themselves against criticism.

I cannot stop thinking that Midoriya is one of the most underappreciated main characters; almost every other character receives praise and acknowledgment for their jobs, but Midoriya only received complaints and hate, especially during the final saga. Regardless, hearing Bakugou receiving so much praise is annoying and undeserved no matter what.
I feel Bakugou just wanted the praise and fame of being a hero, nothing else; that is why he had a meltdown during season 1 when he realized he was not as good as he thought. I think villains saw his attitude and how bad he was at treating others, so maybe that was a hint of him being more of a villain than a hero.
Yes, it was stated that people with powers that alter their appearance, giving them animal features, for instance, get discriminated against and even abused. As I mentioned, there were some instances, but way too few to realize them.

You know, I now realized how big the dark secrets each one of them was; or maybe not that dark, but prone to make them getting judged by society. Kazuki was cross-dressing to make his brother happy, Enta is gay, and Tooi is a drug dealer; those are very big things for such small children. Maybe I will rewatch it again to see if I see more things I did not realize before.
Ok, I am definitely going to rewatch it again someday to see it in more detail. Mainly because I don´t remember that scene with Kazuki crying for Tooi, and I have to say I liked their friendship, and maybe possible feelings for each other, a bit more than with Enta.

I also think the same to be honest; I have met a lot of people, including me sometimes, who think they are being ignorant for asking things they don´t know about because they think they should know them already. In other words, I don´t think it is that we are expecting other people to be immediately perfect, but rather who thinks we should be better. And that is something that I think Sasha was way too criticized for; her character is still young and in high school, no one is completely aware of the world just in high school. Quinny and her have a long trip ahead to nurture their relationship and understand the other point of view.
Just by holding hands? That is so cute, I kind of wish I went to a school like that. Believe me when I say every day there was a new gossip, some were fun and some others were messed up. I remember that every new year there was a Facebook page of the school where students sent their secret confessions to gossip about; it was a wild and fun page that was taken down each year but appear again after a while.

Believe me, when I saw I knew it was going to be that book hahaha; I have seen so many people on videos talking about it and giving their opinions that I knew it was going to be Boyfriend Material.
I am glad to know that things end well for the two of them.
I am surprised a little bit about how serious it is going to be; several people have said it was the funniest book ever, so I thought it was truly going to be mostly a comedy. I am not complaining at all, I am just surprised.

So far, there are at least 15 chapters. I have seen surprised at how popular The Summer Hikaru Died has become; people are talking about it on Facebook, the first volume is available to purchase online, and I think the number of viewers has increased as well. On another note, A Second Goodbye To You Chapter 2 is available, and it was way darker than I expected it to be on so many levels.

I agree, it was a very different movie from what it is usually given by Hollywood nowadays. I know it is going to sound like a cliche, but I liked the In Another Life Scene; the husband stated so many important facts in just a few minutes that it was not feeling touched. I don´t know if it is going to make sense, but I liked that the movie was complex in an easy way.

I have to say episode 9 and the first part of episode 10 were amazing, but the later part of ep 10 was just to add more drama, and that's all. Regardless, I think this anime is way too overlooked; it is a fantastic story filled with a bit of everything.
Hahaha, it has happened to me sometimes in the past too; sadly, it happened to me with two anime I was enjoying a lot during a stressful moment, which was exam week in college. So, I ended up forgetting where I was with them. They were Vinland Saga and Banana Fish. I found Blue Lock funny, especially Isagi; I love how sweet and pure he was out of the field, while he was very mean during matches.

I think I am going to see it for myself because a lot of comments I read stated that the couple did not have a happy ending; I hope you are right though. I haven´t watched the series yet so I cannot give an honest opinion about it; but, I do know it was well received by most viewers, so I am happy.
Hahaha, don´t worry, I don´t judge. I don´t support streaming platforms either aside from Netflix hahaha.

Oh I know, I wholeheartedly know what you are talking about. Some people just stick to the notion that only crazy deranged people go to therapy; nevertheless, I do know some older people who wanted to go to therapy upon recommendation but had very bad luck with their first experience.
Thank you, I was one of the lucky ones. I have heard some stories, it is really sad not to feel you are being listened to by your own therapist.
For real? I am glad for you too. I know what you mean, my therapist was the same; sometimes I thought I was in the right for helped me see others' perspectives. She also gave me good activities to work on when I was in a bad mood or emotionally down.
Yes, we are currently in fall and it is getting very cold, and yes, I am from the Southern Hemisphere. I loathe hot weather; I enjoy summer but hate the sun. Which hemisphere are you from?
Hazbyn May 30, 2023 5:10 PM
Hahaha, I knew it, I am glad to read your ideas.
I have to say I knew the announcement of Halle Bailey getting cast as Ariel was going to nearly break the internet. I read that she got the role because her vocals resemble the ones from the animated movie, and when I heard her sing on the trailers I knew she was a great option. I laugh so much at people complaining that sirens were supposed to be white; I love when someone asked back what the mermaid community said about the issue. Nevertheless, I have to say that the CGI designs of Ariel's animal friends were so horrible; I haven´t watched the movie so I don´t know if they worked or not, but I think they were not good. On the contrary, even though there was controversy over Melissa McCarthy getting cast as Ursula because Ursula was based on a real-life Drag Queen, I think she looked amazing.
I don´t care about the race of humans or fantasy ones, as long as they do a good job. Although I am more prone to critique if they are based on an animated show and their job is horrible.
I haven´t seen the Peter Pan movie but I do know it was heavily criticized on some sites, in spite of having a good response from critics. Regardless, I feel bad when so young actors get heavily criticized for their work.; I know critiques are part of the actors' world and should be as honest as possible, but it is still sad.
Your idea of Disney animating or filming movies from the content of other countries is something I read a while ago; I think that can work and would give more perspective from other races across the world. If I am not wrong, the movie Encanto was an original creation set in Colombia and it actually worked really well.
To be honest, I don´t think that is a lie at all. I have mentioned a few times before that I am not the biggest Disney fan in the world and I don´t tend to watch most of the movies they produced, so I don´t know how much they hide behind race to justify movies that don´t turn out to be as good as they expected. Nevertheless, I do believe they are able to play as races and sexual orientations to shield themselves from critics.

I never heard of the Lancer archetype of characters, I just added him to the list of loud characters. But, unlike other loud characters like Luffy from One Piece and Asta from Black Clover, Bakugou was utterly unlikeable at the beginning, and for the most part, of the story. I think his apology in the later arc was sincere, but at that point, I was also tired of having him as another main character; I heavily loathed all those times where he was praised for being brave, such as in the first episodes when he was nearly absorbed by a villain, and that no one called him out from having such a horrible personality for someone who wants to be a hero.
I wish Bakugou´s reason for being a hero was explained in deep because so far becoming a villain sounded more plausible than him wanting to be a hero; the hero he admired was worshiped by the public for being caring and supportive, while Bakugou so far seems like wanting to praise from the rest of the world for being so amazing and having such a strong quirk. Do you read the manga? There was an interesting plot that showed how flawed the hero society was;


I cannot discredit that, I liked the final episode. I enjoyed a lot the part in which the three main characters start seeing the possible futures they can have while staying together, yet they still decided to be in each other's life. That final scene when Kazuki and Enta went to Tooi´s released from juvie, and the three of them strike the pose hahaha.
I think there were some hints of the characters having feelings for one another, but I cannot stop thinking that Kazuki was the only that did not show any romantic attraction to the other two. Although, I can discern some instances that Kazuki liked Tooi a little bit because it was clear he only saw Enta as a friend. I consider your idea spot on, they were just kids so there is space to speculate what could have been.

I feel exactly the same; I think they are very different, but is undeniable that they had chemistry with each other. I don´t think Sasha is a bad person at all, because she was willing to learn more about neurodivergent people after learning Quinny was part of it; yet, they are still high school students who are discovering the world and that there is more about what they think they know. I hope on season 2 they can understand each other a little bit more to continue their relationship.
For real? To be honest, every gossip that appeared in my high school turned out to be true; from who was having sex with whom, the ones who altered their pictures with Photoshop, the girl whose pictures appeared on a porn site, the teacher who "really" close with the principal, everything true. Because of that, I know how easily gossip travels; and, I can remember that some of the students already knew several of the gossip of the Incest Map, so they were just remembering past rumors that were spread while learning some new ones.

I am interested in the book you have just described. It sounds kind of real, and I want to see how that idea and plot of not being the "Perfect dream boy". I want to ask, so don´t mind spoiling me, did they get back together, or did they just move on with their lives? I want to see that homophobia from allies; it is pretty easy to imagine how it is going to be, but I still want to see how it happens since there are always different and unique ways to mess things up.

That is what I read when I went up to look for more chapters. I hope they get translated sooner than later. By the way, I decided to abstain from reading Hikaru ga Shinda Natsu after chapter 14, but after so many months only chapter 15 is out. Is it updated bimonthly?

I watched Everything Everywhere All At Once some months ago, and I liked it a lot. I liked the husband scene when he pleads to Evelyn to be nice, and then she remembers all the good times she spent with her husband. That scene where Evelyn talks with the inspector was also touching. To be honest, I don´t know who deserved the Oscar more, Jamie Lee Curtis or Stephanie Hsu.
Hahaha, I think it was released way long ago, but I read it like a month ago. It was really funny, especially Mafuyu´s final line.

The anxiety that anime gave during the first two episodes was huge. I have to say that I came to respect the husband and wife a lot, they are truly amazing; I feel all their actions perfectly highlight the opening lyrics.
I read about that on Facebook; the episode centered on the relationship of an elderly gay couple if I am not wrong, I don´t know more about the plot but it was an instant hit. Some people, however, criticized the episode over two ideas; being homophobic, and also that in the game the couple was not as happy as in the show, or so I heard. Is the show on HBO+? If so, I might think about getting an account to watch it someday.

Yes, that was one of the most amazing parts of college. Therapy is still a new concept for older people, they think it is about being weak, complaining about parents, and being crazy. I can understand that notion from older people, but it is sad to hear that from young people.
Yes, she was amazing; I even thanked her for my thesis. How about you?
I am a lot better now, with no signs of sickness anymore. The weather is getting colder each day, so I don´t have any skin to show under a lot of clothes and blankets.
Hazbyn May 21, 2023 10:15 PM
I want to ask you something because I have been fighting a lot of people due to it, what do you think about Halle Bailey being Ariel in the live-action of The Little Mermaid? I am personally not a fan of Disney, because I deeply hate they removed the Simpsons from TV, but I cannot stop thinking this is just racism. I get that the original Ariel is white, but I read that Halle Bailey has the voice to sing the songs for the movies, and at the end of the day as long as she can deliver her role and sing the songs the closer to the real ones, I don´t see an issue.
It is true, I am pretty sure each letter from ANTM had a firm of lawyers behind them ready to sue.

I consider him to be the comic relief, and he fulfilled that role flawlessly hahaha. Jokes aside, in a world where people were able to control elements, he was able to devise plans to stand against them and fight with what he had. I don´t discredit what you say about him being amazing an episode, and the butt of the joke next time.

I cannot disregard the fact that Bakugou has had a remarkable character development from the beginning of the story; at first, he was loud and mean-spirited, and there was no doubt that villains thought he could have been one of them. Nevertheless, I wholeheartedly agree that it happened way into the story and Midoriya was fanboying way too much over Bakugou being a symbol. He was a bully with an annoying superiority complex who was constantly praised by everyone, looked down on his classmates, and was unreasonable even in situations where his life was threatened.
I think interesting ideas were introduced way too late in the manga and not developed properly; nevertheless, I don´t think Midoriya is that bad of a main character. Aside from his admiration towards Bakugou, what do you dislike about Midoriya?

I wished Sarazanmai lasted for a little more; I think it was an utterly weird anime with complex characters and an unpredictable plot. I liked it a lot, but I hope there can be a sequel. I swear that at some point not only Enta, but Tooi also had a crush on Kazuki. Yet, in terms of outcome, Mawaru Penguindrum had one of the most heartbreaking finales ever.

I agree with that author 100%, characters who differ from the goody-two-shoes main character tend to be more attractive and interesting to see. Just like the characters form the Batman series, they follow the law in their own terms.

I read that a lot of people hate Sasha for the way she treated Quinny during their relationship; as much as I love Quinny, I have to say I don´t particularly think of Sasha as a bad person.
It is true that Dusty was not the average Nate Jacobs; he was popular and well-known inside the school but wasn´t physically or sexually abusive towards his partners, nor was he a horrible human being. In my opinion, manipulative and smart.
As an adult, I agree that they break up the trust of too many people and divulged way too many intimate secrets, and the repercussions to the lives of each person inside that map could have been horrible. However, as a former teenager, that is high school for you; everyone is going to know what you did before you even do it. Amery suffered a lot of bullying and humiliation after the incest map was revealed, but at least she tried to improve herself and apologizes to people who showed her what friendship is.
I want to see how season 2 is going to be; I wonder what is going to happen.

I have to say that something common that happens in several stories where two characters fall in love, and that I really dislike, is the usual she/he is cheating on me with someone else plot. I hate cheating and don´t think cheaters deserve a second chance, but if in a story the supposition that one part is cheating the other turned out to be true, it would be interesting to see what comes after that.
I have just found one chapter of that manga translated, and I think there is already a physical volume of A Second Goodbye to You circulating in Japan; I hope more chapters are translated soon.
To sum up, boy 1 is weary of the bleached-haired boy, boy 1 begins a close friendship with the bleached-haired boy, boy 1 starts distancing himself from the bleached-haired boy; then, they had an intimate moment, and years later they are living together as lovers.

I hope I can explain it properly, I swear it is easy to understand it but I don´t know if I can explain it properly hahaha; the first five stories are divided into two arcs, in other words, they are interrupted during the middle; with just the sixth and final story starting and ending in just one arc. The first half of the story is linear, starting in the XIX century and ending in a distant future with the sixth story, then the second half goes backward telling the rest of the stories, ending the novel in the XIX century.
I loved Given´s final chapter. I laughed more than I thought; I have to say, Mafuyu is a funny and blunt character hahaha.

I did not watch the trailer at all; I was just scrolling down one day and found the anime. I watched it, seemed interesting, and kept watching it to this day since is very creepy. The last episode was beautifully sad; I like when characters who seem to be recurring have development and memorable moments. There are some interesting ones; there is one called My Home Hero that I swear gives me a lot of anxiety.
I know about The Last of Us; I read that people loved the acting of Pedro Pascal, but were disappointed that the original model for the design of Ellie was cast for the role... I heard Bella Ramsey did a good job, so I hope she doesn´t care about the stupid critiques from the gamers.

A professional's perspective on your problems is utterly helpful. In college, there was free therapy for students, although the schedules were fully booked and you needed to have a lot of luck to get an appointment. I decided to go and give it a chance during a difficult period and kept on going even when things were going ok. I am glad I decided to go even to this day.
Yes, a lot. We are in autumn, or fall, here and the temperature went has decreased significantly compared to April. I am better now, thanks for asking; there are still some persistent symptoms, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Hazbyn May 9, 2023 8:47 PM
Don´t ever worry about it; sometimes I also have problems answering messages.

Sadly, it is still a common issue; older generations sometimes don´t have regard for body shaming others, especially those who are related to them. During the lockdown, I started reading several stories on Reddit, mainly the category AITA, and I have read so many stories about people being discriminated against or humiliated because of their weight and body that are absolutely heartbreaking.
I have no idea why they do that. I think they thought the reactions from real girls were going to be way more realistic than the ones from actresses. Still, I would like to know if it is still possible for ANTM models to sue; I heard in one video that the contract they had to sign was huge, and if the models disclosed any information while being outside of the house, they were going to have to have an army of lawyers.

Varrick was a rich inventor from the southern water tribe with whom Asami was trying to sign an agreement so he could help her save her company, and Zhu Li was his assistant who followed every single command he gave her. In the fourth book, she grew tired of feeling disrespected by Varrick, he apologized and started looking at her as an equal, and they married at the end of the season. I don´t know why, but even if he was a jerk from time to time, I still could not hate him; I think he reminded me of Sokka.

Yeah, basically Scum´s Wish is about horrible people having inappropriate sex with more horrible people.
Hahaha, agree, the BNHA doujins are better than the story itself. The manga is amazing, some panels are mesmerizing and breathtaking, while the anime has an amazing soundtrack; yet, the repetitive super attacks, such as kicking and punching but with different names, killed my love for the Shounen genre. I think it was an eye-opener somehow.
I am trying to edit the Terrified Teacher at Ghoul School MAL page, I just love the story a lot. Moreover, I prefer to use the English name since it is easier to use. At first, it may not seem the best, but I swear is an underrated masterpiece.

I once saw a meme that summarizes Mawaru Penguindrum, and any story that starts soft and goes hard as time goes by, by comparing it to an RPG game:
Chapter 1: Save the Kitty.
Final Chapter: Kill God.
All jokes aside, Mawaru Penguindrum needs more recognition; a powerful story with a heartbreaking finale.

Villian, antagonizing the main lead code of honor, and side characters with an interesting back story tend to become fan favorites rather easily. Sometimes they even become more popular than the main character itself, I think it is because readers and/or viewers tend to debate quite a lot whether their actions are justified or not. I haven´t logged in on Netflix in some time, maybe I am going to give Shadow and Bone a try.
I am glad you liked it. My favorite character was Quinni by far; I love how sweet and kind-hearted she was. Amery and Darren dispute the second place. On the contrary, I disliked Dusty for how manipulative and non-regretful he was, and Harper for the way she treated Amery and for being so double-standard; I know in just one night she went to hell back and forth, but without knowing that she was a nasty human being.

I understand; repetitiveness and lack of fresh ideas can kill the mood for a genre. I was just reading an article about that, it said how love-comedy anime should end after the confession; because, after that, it felt like filler.
I swear I was waiting for your message to recommend you that exact same manga. I also read Chapter 1 of A Second Goodbye to You and loved it; it reminded me of Hikaru ga Shinda Natsu and wanted to recommend it to you. I want to see more, to start theorizing who could be the main villain.
What is your opinion of Achira, Kochira, Bokura? I liked how they started first as friends, and it was really funny, but I think I would have loved to see their romance in more detail.

It was lowkey Sci-Fi, especially towards the final two stories. It is a 2004 novel about the lives of six persons in different timelines who share the same soul. It touches on interesting points and views that I liked a lot; it was a little bit hard to read since some vocabulary used in the first stories was way too specific and hard to understand, but I have to say it was an amazing story.
Maybe the conversation with Bon and the three soldiers is going to be featured in some later arc. Regarding the manga, I think I am going to stick solely to the anime, updating it seems way too troublesome; the numeration of chapters feels a lot like Given chapters.

I swear to god the babies grossed me out. They were so nasty and reptilian; yet, I have to say the author is a genius. I was thinking of reading the manga, but so far I am pretty sure Heavenly Delusion is going to have a second season.

I am glad to hear you are doing fine. I hope that you can attend your next sessions without interference; I know how necessary they can be from time to time, and having someone listening to you can be relaxing and helpful.
I got bronchitis a few days ago. My brother was staying with us for a few days, and he brought this powerful electric heater that heated the whole house; I have to go out several times a week, so the changes in temperature destroyed me. I have a soar throat and a lot of coughing, but thankfully no fever.

That´s the thing, as kids one tends to be hurtful without knowing the weight of words, but if you keep with that mentality as an adult, without learning of the damage you are causing, then you have not learned a thing in life. I have seen so many people, way older than me, in the entertainment industry who keep body-shaming others thinking it is funny. I cannot remember the name, but there was a model who make fun of another woman in the gym; the model lost her career.
So far, nothing has happened since Selena Gomez asked her fans to not harass Hailey Bieber; I think the conflict is solved, for now. I think the main issue arose from the fact that Hailey Bieber and the Jenner sisters posted too coincidental pictures and videos that were not directed to Selena.
The darkest tea I learned about ANTM happened during season 16. Out of 30 girls, fourteen were already pre-selected to participate, without them knowing it. The J´s did this dynamic where the girls who found their pictures in an envelope advance to the house, and the rest were eliminated; the 16 girls who found their pictures were taken to a bus where they stayed for hours just to learn for a production that they were in fact eliminated, and the other 14 contestants were the selected bunch to participate on the season. Chaos began on the bus with the girls crying and yelling for that, and one of them screamed that she had an abortion to participate in the show.

I hold production accountable for at least 85% of the edition and treatment towards the models; but Tyra, as the face of the show and main judge, needed to defend them more instead of attacking and forcing them to do things they were not comfortable with.

I agree with that, even though I do not ship him with Mako, I also went from disliking him to not caring about his presence. I think the one character that I learned to love was Varrick; he was annoying and selfish, yet a bit funny, but by the end of the show I came to care for him, plus I loved his proposal to Zhu Li.
I understand what you are trying to say, but I don´t think I have seen an animated show or manga in which LGBT matters are treated normally. I liked that in the Avatar comics they touched on the fact that each nation has its own views regarding LGBT relationships, it added a more realistic approach with the fact that some countries were more open-minded and others penalized it; like in the real world.

Yes, Valkyries took the souls of the killed who were worthy of Valhalla. Maybe that is why in Record of Ragnarok they stayed loyal to the humans they were paired with.

Yes, I think the male lead had a relationship with the female teacher, who also took his virginity; while the female lead loved his male teacher who was also his childhood friend. I think the story was about a girl and a boy with unrequited feelings for their teachers, so they decided to have sex with one another I don´t know why.
Even though I am enjoying the final arc for how dark is getting, I blame Boku no Hero for killing my interest in Shounen stories. So far Tower of God and One Piece, and maybe Yozakura Family, are the last ones I am truly enjoying.
If you are feeling sad about getting fewer things to enjoy, try finding something that can revive your interest. I recommend you give a try to Youkai Gakkou no Sensei Hajimemashita!, I swear it made me laugh during hard times; it revived my desire for reading again.
That is what I´ve been told, that Akiho's arrival took the screentime of Syarona and Tomoyo, and the two of them barely appear. I like Touya and Yukito a lot, I don´t know why, maybe because they have the looks of a real BL manga couple.

Yes, they were part of an organization that I think planted bombs on a subway; and the bombing was what killed Momoka, Ringo´s older sister.

Hahaha, I love your recommendation. I will give it a try to see how it is, Just to know, which themes does the show deal with? From some pictures I have seen so far I can infer is about magic and nobility, am I right or wrong?
There are two versions, I haven´t seen the first one because it aired a long time ago and in another country. I saw the newer version on Netflix, and that is the one I was talking about. I read on Wikipedia that some characters from the original show appeared in the reboot.

So far I think I can positively assert that I understand you more than anything; I still like reading about romance, but as I have said multiple times I am not enjoying the shounen as much as before. Sometimes the main goal of an entire manga/anime is indeed to just pair the main lead with his or her love interest. Can I ask which story killed your interest in the romance genre?
So, you don´t read BL either? I want to recommend you one that I read some months ago, and that I think is actually pretty interesting since the romance is hinted at but not developed until the end. The journey is more about the start of their friendship, their reliance on one another, insecurities regarding their relationship, and the end implying they were endgame. The manga is called Achira, Kochira, Bokura.

I like that Fushi´s group can experiment with the world in different periods. I don´t read the manga, but I saw a chapter, before a huge time skip, in which Fushi was having a conversation with an elderly March who was clearly no longer that little girl from the beginning. I feel it is somehow similar to Cloud Atlas.
Now that you mention it, I cannot ignore how easily Messar, Hylo, and Kai accepted death and revival; I don´t remember what Bon said to them, but I guess it was something beyond convincing.
I saw that the chapters are divided in a weird way, at least on the site where I read manga; they were enumerated as, for instance, chapters 123.1, 123,2, 123, 124.1, and so on.
Fushi can be so sweet and funny sometimes hahaha.

I got invested in knowing what the story was about, but I did not want to read the manga. I found several spoilers, and I was dumbfounded; it is going to get way crazier and darker. I understand what you say, I did not like the LGBT representation regarding the kids in the school, but the one with the female lead is actually interesting. Still, I also hope the ship does not sail.

Thank you, I will keep it in mind. How have you feel lately?
