Hey Orion, I think I've broken a record with how late this reply is. Please congratulate me. Thank you.
Enough joking, sorry for being so late again. I will try to be concise here, so you don't have to write too much in response :P
I'm kinda less busy now, but I do have to study and practice for that entrance-exam in October!
Thanks for complimenting my profile! It's always such a relieving feeling whenever I finish a new one ^^

Forget about the "semblance of certainty", reading through it now, I phrased that so confusingly >.< Here's the deal:
It's not really the pandemic that made me change my field of study, it's more that the pandemic froze my life (and many others' lives, too, I think). Time seemed to stand still for the last few years - sometimes still I feel like my first semester at uni (2019/20) was only months ago. Because of that, I didn't really question my path going forward a lot - whether I was suited to be a teacher, whether I got good grades, whether I finished all the internships I had to do in time - I was constantly at home and only really did what was necessary in the short run, and sometimes I didn't even do that. I ended up putting some semesters off, so basically right now I'm by far not as deep into my studies as I could be. The uni does allow students to discount Covid semesters from the maximum number of semesters, but that's not really the point if I'm not going to be fully committed anyway. So with Covid slowly coming to an end, I considered my other possibilities and came to the conclusion that I should take this exam for a public office, which is something I'm pretty sure I am way more suited to.
Yes, I have some preferences, and preferences are also the only things I can pick at the moment, since there is a limited number of positions afterwards, and only the best participants will get one, so the better I do, the higher my chances of getting exactly what I want. The preferences I picked were, in that order, 1) a librarian at a scientific library, 2) a general interior administrator (basically an administrator in a municipality), 3) a law-enforcement officer at an ordinary court of justice or prosecution, 4) an administrator in forestry.
Thank you so much for all your well-wishes, they make me want to do really well in the exam =^^=

That's great to hear! Best wishes to your relatives!

I've not been to that many hotels either, but that one just happened to be particularly bad :P No, that was the first time. But it's okay, it was livable. I'm fine. We all were... except for the one that got Covid. And all the ones that had Covid afterwards. (Not me.) But that wasn't because of the hotel.
Florence was international, so I guess it was more special than Trier or Paderborn, but I think equally as special as Barcelona. But not because it was delayed two years, it's more like it was just especially badly organized as a result of that :P

Yup, Waterfairy is great. It's Romantic, my favourite period of music ^^
"Classical music" is a vague term. It can refer to either the classical period of the arts (so the late 18th/early 19th century), which Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven fall under. And then there is also the the tradition of Western European art-music (that is, not folk-music), which can be called "classical music" to distinguish it from the traditions of modern musical genres (i.e., everything that came out of America, like for example jazz, rock 'n' roll, hip-hop, and their descendants). All three pieces only fall under the second definition of classical music.
Waterfairy is late 19th century, the other two are early 20th century. None of these are religious, although all three composers also wrote religious music. Regardless, religious music can certainly also be categorized into the above traditions and periods. There's Romantic religious music and Romantic secular music, for example.
Ecce Gratum is just about how spring is cool, The Fiery Rider is just a creepy ghost-story about a specter riding a horse setting fire to a mill but burning himself (I guess? I don't entirely get it myself xD). And oops, looks like I gave you the wrong file for the Waterfairy. It's basically about a sexy fairy in a lake who leads a sad existence because she can't be delivered after death anyway, so she wants to at least find pleasure in sleeping with a human.

Short comments to some of the movies:
Metropolis looks interesting, I'm very curious about it.
Totsukuni no Shoujo is one I'm looking forward to a lot, too!
A Whisker Away was really sweet. Second half gave me some Ghibli vibes. I thought it was a good film overall.
Baoh Raihousha I did enjoy, but I didn't really take a lot away from it, so it didn't really mean much to me :P
Didn't know Saint Onii-san had a movie! xD
And The Wind Rises is a must-watch anyway, I'll surely watch it someday!
Thanks for recommending me Eiga Daisuki Pompo-san! It looks really special :D

Thanks! Your point of view obviously makes sense, too, especially if what you're worried about is runtime/watchtime in general.

And here's just a quick list of everything I'm definitely watching from next season:
- Spy x Family - The first half was a very good first impression, but I hope to see more serious stuff in the second half!
- To Your Eternity - I know you didn't really like how the first season turned out, but to me it was interesting enough to keep watching.
- Akiba Maid War - New P.A. Works working-girl show? In that case, 2 cours or I riot. If not (and it might not be, since it was produced by Cygames), then it's still a new show from one of my favourite studios, so a definite watch.
- Do It Yourself - Woodworking isn't a spin on CGDCT we had before, right? Anyway, the artstyle to this looks really unique and the backgrounds remind me of earlier eras of anime, so I have high hopes for this!
- Bibliophile Princess - Looks like a classic shojo, so I naturally gravitate towards it. Hope it'll be good. I think it's set in a fantasy-world? If so, I'm curious if they have books that directly parallel certain books from our world.
- Chainsaw Man - Everyone is hyped about this. It's not exactly my type of thing, but it seems like it's going to be pretty good, so I'm still curious about it.
That would be it ^^

Hope you're doing well! Thanks for being so patient with my reply ^^"

Ευχαριστώ πολύ man!

Καλησπέρα φίλε! Είδα ότι έκανες drop το Lycoris Recoil και ήθελα να ρωτήσω την γνώμη σου για το anime, καθώς ήταν από τα anime που σκόπευα να δω στο τέλος της season.
Chrollium Aug 14, 2022 10:42 AM
Το Texhnolyze ήταν αρκετά μοναδική εμπειρία. Δεν ξέρω αν έχεις δει το Serial Experiments Lain αλλά είναι από τους ίδιους creators, αν και δεν είναι τόσο avant-garde ή αόριστο όσο αυτό. Έχει καθαρή πλοκή αλλά είναι και πολύ αργό. Η δύναμή του για μένα ήταν το πόσο εμβυθιστικός ήταν ο κόσμος του. Σίγουρα είναι ένα anime που δεν είναι για όλους και θα το καταλάβεις από το πρώτο επεισόδιο. Επίσης, είναι αρκετά καταθλιπτικό οπότε καλύτερα να φροντίσεις να είσαι στην κατάλληλη διάθεση για αυτό.

Τέλειο 😍
Ευχαριστώ ρε Κώστα 💖

Now where's my excuse for this late reply? Oh, yes: I never actually removed that note about me being on hiatus until now! Yeah, that sounds good.
Hey Orion, hope you're doing well! ^^

Thanks for telling me about all these things, I hope talking about them helps you process them.
That contemplative mood of uncertainty is a familiar feeling for me. Since beginning my studies, I've been pretty reluctant about actually being a teacher. Originally, I meant for it to be a sort of launchpad into several fields of study, but as Covid raged, it dragged on and I didn't really want to change course in that constantly shifting environment to preserve a semblance of certainty. But now that I've finally taken a step in a different direction - I've applied for an exam to become a public official), my feelings of uncertainty increased by a large degree again, of course. Idk, the future is just a bit scary...
Oh, I wish your relatives all the health they can get, need and deserve! Personally, I'm not very close with many of my relatives outside of my nuclear family, but I really get what you mean by "you know, they are my relatives".
Sometimes hoping is all you can do in the end, and that's fine! Of course, I wish you all the best too, and I hope you made/will make the right decisions!

The Florence report! The experience was phenomenal, but the organization was terrible. Our hotel was pretty bad (i.e. the lights didn't work in my room, the beds were super-small and each room had a different bad smell), and the packed lunches we got fed were a joke (what a great idea to put tuna in a breadroll, give them out at noon even though they're meant for supper, and leave them to be carried around in the scorching sun for the better part of the afternoon). (Btw, I had been on 3 of these kinds of festivals before and it was never that bad xD) But you would kind of forgive everything bad, since everything else was such a great experience: singing and also listening to concerts and accompanying the mass with song.
That one concert with that one choir also went really well.

Yes, I have no doubt that rewatching Utena will be wholly worth it, it's so intricate. I think Utena does symbolism and allegory exceptionally well, and I really enjoyed this aspect of the show. It's just so fulfilling to read into a show when you know it's doing these things and doing them well.
I've been told so ^^ I hear it's something of a "lighter" Utena and a bit more slice-of-life-esque. And I'm really looking forward to it! It already has a fixed spot on my queue :P (Sarazanmai as well!)

You can list those random movies if you want, I don't watch movies too often, and I doubt it'd be a bad idea to watch them more often ^^
Paradise Kiss is something I'm interested in the back of my head, but not immediately or anything.
And Nichijou is obviously something I have to check out at some point, after all, it's my mission to watch every Kyoani show there is! ^^
I might be interested to check out more of Asano's stuff once I'm done with Punpun, but currently that manga has priority! :D

This is a really interesting question: At which point does something become a long-runner? Like One Piece and Bleach and things like that are clearly long-runners, but is Shaman King? I'm not sure. But thinking about it, I've come to the conclusion that it has less to do with the actual number of chapters/episodes and more with the question of whether it's one story or several stories. By that, I mean this: It's a long-runner if there is a point in the middle of the manga/anime when all currently set-up plot-threads are resolved and later, new ones are brought about; which, to my knowledge, applies to One Piece and Bleach, but not to Shaman King (or Kaguya-sama). I think this is the reason why I'm like "I do like long stories, but not long-runners".
Sorry for the tangent haha.
But I share your opinion! I'm really looking forward to what Kaguya-sama has coming for us. I mean, in the final episode, the two main leads said it best themselves that the series is far from over: "SAT scores, convincing my father, applying to university", "there is so much to think about and take care of" and so on :D

Oh, and for this season, I've set my eyes on Made in Abyss (obviously), the Tokyo Mew Mew reboot, and maybe Lycoris Recoil. I've already started Tokyo Mew Mew, but I'll save my thoughts on it for when this season is over, though, since my thoughts are all over the place at the moment xD
Gooseflower Jul 11, 2022 7:20 AM
Hey Orion ^^

Thank you so much for your birthday-wishes! You were the first person to wish me a happy birthday today, hehe ^^"

Oh, not to worry. I've been off MAL for some time as well. Being actually able to go to uni in person this semester has increased my motivation, regularized my work-rhythm and I've put in a lot more effort, which I'm all very happy about.
You can of course share details if you want, but don't feel forced to! On the other hand, if you want to, I'll gladly listen ^^

I've been well overall. Summer has been okay so far, the end of June was very hot and dry, but July has been pretty cool and kinda rainy so far, which I greatly appreciate haha. Apart from uni, my summer this year is especially full of choir-stuff.
In June, I visited Leipzig on a Mendelssohn-themed trip (he's my favourite composer) along with the sweet (more or less) old ladies from the parish-choir, as well as my dad and a few other people. That trip had been in the planning for two years and I'm glad it finally happened. Leipzig is a really nice city.
That's not the only choir-trip, though. There's an international Catholic choir-festival held in Florence this year (rescheduled from 2020, Wednesday to Sunday this week) and my youth-choir is going there, and I plan this to be my last big event with the choir which I've been a member of for 11 years now, seeing how that isn't exactly my agegroup anymore. Italy is going to be hot, but if I have the chance to visit Florence, I don't think I can miss that :P
Because I'm about to leave that choir, I'm on the lookout for a new group to sing in, so I've been getting some impressions of other nearby formations, one of which I've joined for a wedding recently and the other one I'm joining for a concert later this month.

I know my profile says I'm off the anime until the end of July, but I actually have more time at my disposal than I realized, because I actually wasn't slacking off and procrastinating all semester; so the past few days, I've been binging a bit :P

Oyasumi Punpun is fascinating, but quite different from what I had imagined. With its exaggerated drawings, grotesque faces, wacky situations and out-of-left-field lines, it reads to me like a dark comedy at times, when I had expected it to be nothing but bleak depressingness. All things considered, I think it's a very well-put-together work. I'm in the middle of Uncle Yuichi's backstory at the moment and it's pretty heavy. It's definitely not something one should miss out on.

And yes, there are a few other shows I would love to share some thoughts on. For example, I'm utterly impressed by last season's Dance Dance Danseur, the ballet one. It's a seinen, but it feels a bit like what I'm expecting a 70s drama-shojo to feel like (à la Glass Mask, Oniisama e...). Obviously, I haven't seen any of those yet, and therefore can neither pin down the element of the show that makes me feel that way nor know if my comparison is even appropriate; but for some reason, Dance Dance Danseur has made me even more excited for exactly those series.
It's admittedly the first-ever show by Mappa that I've seen, and my gosh, that studio is capable of some things. I've rarely seen so much movement shot on that framerate in a TV-anime. The visualizations are beautiful, apt, and dynamic. And the story, while it is pretty fast-paced in the anime, which worried me in the beginning, is very well-developed, many-layered and never static.
The anime has about reached the point the manga is currently at, so this one-cour season is all we're going to get for now. But I really, really hope that it will get a continuation when the time comes. It's so good that it would be a waste otherwise, in my opinion ^^"

Yesterday, I resumed Lovely Complex after putting the series off like 7 years ago. And it's such a joy to watch. It's another romcom that is actually funny, although it is admittedly not as smart about that as Kaguya-sama. But it still has my whole-hearted recommendation!

And a few days ago, I started Symphogear, you know, that trashy idol-magical-girl-music-thing with a lot of yuri-teasing. Turns out it is all that, but it's also very genuine, well thought out and has some very not-bad-at-all character-writing, I'm impressed so far. And the first season is supposedly the worst, so I think it can only go uphill in later installments. Have you ever thought about Symphogear?

Okay, that's all I have to say for now! If you want to talk about another show I'm currently watching, just pick it out of my CW list! ^^
