It’s just that philology seems to be a specialized field of study, and usually people would say they’re studying something more generalized like "English literature". Look at this definition of philology:
"Philology, traditionally, the study of the history of language, including the historical study of literary texts. It is also called comparative philology when the emphasis is on the comparison of the historical states of different languages. The philological tradition is one of painstaking textual analysis, often related to literary history and using a fairly traditional descriptive framework. It has been largely supplanted by modern linguistics, which studies historical data more selectively as part of the discussion of broader issues in linguistic theory, such as the nature of language change."

Halfway through Tsuki ga Kirei, it's still a really adorable show. While it is very low-key and sometimes a bit thin, the show really shines in the way it does simple things right - in fact, the "simple" things it's doing right are clearly not easy to get right at all. These young characters, both in the main show and the great shorts at the end (seriously I wonder why that isn't more of a thing, having relevant shorts to explain subplots), don't act too smart/mature for their age or too childish for their age - they always act JUST as I remember kids that age acting. With the possible exception of Roman (who's still a really likable guy), no one is confined to any archetype and no one is strictly defined by any given personality trait. They're so real, in fact, that in some ways I feel like I'm watching a down-to-earth Miyazaki movie for the first time all over again.
I love the nuances in the characters - especially Akane, who shows a great palette of emotions depending on the situation that range from shyness and assertiveness, to focus and confusion, to wistfulness and joy.

Also, regarding episode 7: the Thunder Dolphin roller coaster in Tokyo Dome City was one of the smoothest and best-quality roller coasters I've ever been on. :D

A happy coincidence indeed. I considered changing the Tsuki ga Kirei image on my mosaic, but I think I'll leave it for now.

Fantastic. The special weight and atmosphere of the series really stands out compared to a more "standard" slice of life -- and in my opinion, it only gets better over time. Have fun.

Thank you! And any day could always use a little more Tsuki ga Kirei.

Early returns on GLT?

Just started Tsuki ga Kirei. By design and demeanor alone, the characters are some of my favorites I've seen all year. The little blushes on their faces, the shyness of their smiles - they say so much more than the script alone. Pretty much no one needs to say how they feel on this show, because their faces tell it all.
As for the story - it's simple and adorable, and I just hope it manages to stay realistic and striking so I'll be able to remember it long after its short runtime is over. So far I'm really liking the fact that it's not just all about the main stars - other relationships and characters are explored too, and I hope I'll get to see a nice garden variety of character interactions.

Sorry for the late reply. My computer's monitor died and I had to wait a while for a replacement.

English philology? That sounds pretty specific, haha. Hmmm, there are benefits and drawbacks to studying near your hometown. Would you live at school or commute from home?

"I have some specific directions in mind after that too, because I don't think it will allow me to pursue some of the stuff I want to do at all, but I'm not thinking too hard about that right now, just gotta do what I gotta do."
Yeah, it's still early, and it's pretty common for people to work in a field completely different from the one they studied.

Werty reading Manga?

It completely slipped my mind until about a half-hour ago that Food Wars just resumed today. :D With the first episode the show is definitely back in form and pretty much everything that makes it a joy to watch is back.

Yay! Yes, I think the show has a very charming but surprisingly pinpoint way of depicting social anxieties, while staying lighthearted about it. I was eager to watch new episodes each week; it's nice for a show to just be a good time, where everyone means well. I also felt pretty happy with the pacing overall, like I wasn't being strung along too much waiting for things to get moving.

I -- just went and checked his twitter, wondering if anything's changed, and he's still tweeting stuff of the same nature as recently as ten minutes ago. It's a shame for sure.

Please tell me MMO Junkie's going well for you.

No worries. Been a while since I've had a chance to use a gif.

Drat. I'm just going to remain indecisive forever, aren't I?

No problem, I know you're still busy with school. How many anime are on your rec list, by the way?

What do you have planned after you graduate? I mean, in terms of education?

Thanks, I hope I'll feel the same way, too!
