HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAREST ELLE ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡

This marks yet another milestone in our friendship, and I couldn't be any more grateful that I get to wish you happy birthday for another year!

Thank you for remaining the same amazing, thoughtful, creative, and kind person I met almost five years ago. Time has definitely flown by since then, but at the same time, I learn so much from each and every conversation we have! I hope you know how much I appreciate our friendship, and how much I will continue to cherish it in the coming years. Just as I know I can count on you for anything, please keep in mind that I am always here for you too ♥

I love you so much, and I hope you have a wonderful day and year ahead of you filled with lots of happiness, great music, and precious time dedicated to writing!!

uni Jan 13, 2019 11:25 PM
That's true! It's definitely been a little tough so far, but I think I'm going to drop an extra class I was just planning to take for fun anyways, so that should hopefully clear up my schedule a bit :')

It's great that you've been doing well! You must also be busy with both working and writing, but I'm sure that finding an ideal balance for both activities must be very fulfilling. It makes me happy to hear that you're enjoying both things a lot right now!!

Also, I noticed that you've started watching some winter anime! Are there any standouts to you so far? :)
uni Jan 12, 2019 6:06 PM
Thank you!! Same to you! My classes started up again this week, and work at both my jobs is picking up too, so I've been a bit busy but doing well otherwise, so I can't complain :)

How have you been? I hope 2019 has been treating you well so far! ♡
uni Nov 12, 2018 3:15 AM
ELLE!!! What an amazing comment to be greeted with first thing after logging in ;___; thank you very much for your kind message - it put the biggest smile on my face! It's indeed been a memorable past few years, and I hope you know how much of an important person you are in my life as well. I love you so much, and just as I feel grateful for our many wonderful years of friendship thus far, I'm looking forward to the many many more to come!! ♡

Also!!! That Chaekura gif is too cute and so us! I love it ♥ ♥ ♥

That's true! It also would've been really nice if at least one or two more Japanese trainees made it in :( I was rooting for Shitao Miu myself - she's very pretty with visuals that Koreans would like, and she has quite a notable male fanbase as well haha. Either way, I'm fully on board now and I can't wait for IZ*ONE's debut later this month! I'm excited for their first group variety too. It'll be fun to see them more relaxed without Mnet's evil editing and in a less stressful environment!

I totally agree! Banana Fish didn't actually really click for me until the last couple episodes, but those have been perfect! The first half of the series was especially action-packed, which made me appreciate the slower, more introspective and tender moments between Eiji and Ash even more. Ash is such a compelling character too! I'm already anticipating Utsumi's future works.

Oh gosh!!! I heard about the sequel for Free :( the drama this season eventually got toned down, but I think they tried cramming too much and introducing too many new characters at the very end, which made everything come across as very rushed and unsatisfying. Hopefully Tsurune this season will be better! Are there any fall shows you're looking forward to?

Yes! I'm Fine is definitely one of my favorites, and I noticed that you had it linked on your profile earlier as well :') I'm so happy that Loona has finally debuted too!! And ahhh I actually had no idea about Gowon and the OMG girls until you mentioned it, but I looked it up just now, and that's so adorable and heartwarming! OMG totally seems like the type of group Gowon would love as well. And on that note, it's really nice to have OMG back too!

Overall r/anime is definitely where I have the best discussions about anime. And I've met all the best people of course. Sure its not perfect, but what community is? You're fully done with school and stuff? I'm envious I got a ways to go but it's all part of the process.

So since I've taken ages to reply to this (sorry again) we're down to two eps left and I'm probably still going to look at this season and hate Hoyori despite what the season has done with him. The backstory still felt a bit too serious to suddenly feel sympathetic towards him but at least Ikuya got a bit better after that race. After episode 8 its been finding its footing.

Somehow One Piece completely passed me when I was growing up. I was into so many other shounen but idk I guess I just never got around to it. Better late than never though and maybe for the best since I got to binge read 800 chapters in one go. The anime has been nice, I just finished Alabasta and it's as great as I remember in the anime. I'm still very much enjoying it despite my awareness with the adaptation issues but I'll cross that path when I get there. The filler is also... very natural. It just makes sense that with a journey like One Piece, it's not that random to land on a island or make a detour on the way to the next arc. Usopp is actually my favorite Strawhat <3 not a super popular opinion, but not that unpopular probably?
uni Sep 1, 2018 12:20 AM
Oh man! I hope autumn doesn't come too quickly either :(

I can definitely see why that would be the case! Sian is hilarious, has great reactions, and she made a long-lasting impression as the best twerker in Rumor hahaha. Juri performed Playing with Fire during her audition too! And oh gosh, did you see the final lineup? The results were a bit... weird :( I was pretty let down at first, but I think I've come to terms with them now, especially since many of my top picks made it in. It looks like Gaeun got Jonghyun'd in the end though, which is quite upsetting ;___; she's such a sweetheart and smiled brightly the entire time, even when her ranking was announced.

Ohh, I actually had no idea there was a Yamada-directed episode! Even though Utsumi is at the helm of BF this summer, I wonder if the new season would've turned out differently if she was directing it. I haven't really been feeling this season of Free at all either :( I thought the first couple episodes were alright, but everything after that so far has been a bit disappointing. Do you think you might pick it back up later?

I know what you mean! There's just something satisfying about seeing everything lined up haha.

I did!! I love Loona's debut song and mini - the concept fits all of the members so well. I think I need a little more time for Idol to grow on me, but I've been enjoying their live stages of it, and the other songs are great! It's amazing how BTS manages to break their own records with each comeback haha.
uni Aug 7, 2018 10:39 PM
Thank you! And I totally agree!! I'm going to miss summer commute times a lot.

Oh no! Is it like a humid rain? That doesn't sound very pleasant :( hopefully it stops raining over there soon. And it really is!! This week has been especially hot, but it looks like next week will finally start cooling down a bit. Hopefully it'll stay that way!

I hope so too! Speaking of the rankings, did you see the most recent ones?! Including yesterday's midweek rankings? I'm honestly so shocked and speechless by the last two results, this season's rankings have been very volatile and no one is safe :o Juri is such a charming performer and a Blackpink fan too! And oh gosh I know, the decision to use a punk rock arrangement for DDDD really was not the best idea haha. I wish they went for more of an acoustic version like they did with Playing with Fire last season. Sakura is an interesting case because she's a bit lacking skills-wise, but she's very aware of it and constantly tries to challenge herself! I've heard a couple people compare Sakura to a shonen protagonist, which sounded kinda funny at first but makes a lot of sense the more I think about it.

Asahi is great and I love how spirited he is! Now that you mention it, I can definitely hear Miyu Irino in his voice haha. I'm sure Hiyori will realize the error of his ways in due time, but I really hope that happens sooner rather than later :'( it's a shame that Ikuya puts up with his behavior, although he still does seem quite traumatized by his past.

Me too!! And ooh that sounds really cool! It's funny how 10 spots for favorites feels like a lot yet not quite enough at the same time.

Wonderful new username and profile picture, btw! And I love how you included Loona's new single too :)
Remix Aug 3, 2018 3:48 AM
I've only opened the anime discussion once or twice and I remember seeing very similar things from browsing new on r/anime i.e. Overrated shows, what do you like that everyone hates, judge taste etc. Yeah health science is my basic field of study but I hope to branch into the likes of say Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Bio-medicine etc. I'll spare you my life story, but Uni and I used to mix like oil and water back in the day haha. But things are looking up now.

I'm replying after finishing ep 4 and holy shit I hate Ikuya's friend Hioryi SO MUCH. What a fucking prick, haha. It makes it even worse for me that this is a college setting now.

I see you've been reading One Piece, have you been liking it as much as the anime? I'm guessing you watched the anime first and went back to read? You might have noticed I'm doing the opposite. I'm actually caught up on the manga but I'm currently enjoying the anime from the beginning. I'm already aware of the issues with the adaptation later on so it's no biggie.

uni Aug 1, 2018 8:16 PM
It really is! Our director has the final say about everything that happens in our program, but she has tons of experience and knowledge (I think she started working here a few years after I was born, actually!) so it seems like she really knows what she's doing haha. And aw, it's great that you have more of chance to get to know the remaining coworkers now that the others are on vacation! I like how work over the summer can feel a little quieter/slower, and even though our office has been a bit busy, it's nice to see the campus emptier than usual.

That sounds good!! And that's a shame about the novel's ending :( it's a good thing the prose was kind of a saving grace, at least. I also heard from your sister that it was thundering and raining in the evening recently! Hopefully it cools down over there soon ;___; and here as well haha, it seems like the heat has been rather unrelenting over the past month or so.

She really is! And I actually think Sakura and Kaeun will drop sadly, and they've both technically already fallen from their original 1st place rankings :( Sakura has a strong individual fanbase though, so I don't think she'll ever fall outside of the 4-6 range and she'll probably even rise once one-pick voting begins. I'm especially worried about Kaeun though, and I feel like she might experience what happened to Jonghyun last season (which breaks my heart because he was my favorite!). She's a solid all-around performer and very kind, mature, and professional, but at the same time, she doesn't really seem to have the distinct charms that tend to draw people in ;__; hopefully I'm proven wrong though. Oh, and the DDDD performance came out! Did you have a chance to watch it? I know some people enjoyed it, but I was quite disappointed, personally :( the styling, stage design, and song arrangement didn't help either, and Seoyoung wasn't able to pull her weight as a leader and even forgot her lines, despite being an ex-YG trainee. Sakura was a little awkward in the eye contact cam, but I feel like that's almost a part of her charm at this point haha. She's very likable and it's hard not to want to root for her!

I started a few jdramas, but the one I enjoyed the most is a josei manga adaptation abbreviated as Nigehaji, starring Yui Aragaki and Gen Hoshino! I'm not sure if you've heard of it before, but it aired a couple years ago and featured a viral "Koi Dance" in its ED haha. I've also been seeing a lot of Taishi Nakagawa lately (he kind of looks like Fukushi Sota sometimes), but not as much Yamaken, surprisingly! I actually ended up watching the Free movie, and it definitely seems like you're right that the new season is gradually recapping it as it goes along. The movie helped me appreciate Natsuya more though, and he's probably my favorite among the newer characters so far haha. I like him quite a bit already. I'm sad that Rei and Nagisa have more of a supporting role this season, although it makes sense ;__; Rei's tiny scene in the High Speed movie was probably the highlight of it for me haha. And I really hope Hiyori mellows out soon, because he's probably the weakest part of the season to me so far and he's starting to affect my overall enjoyment :'(

YES it was such a gripping read from start to finish!! And it's funny you mention that, because I've actually been deliberating over my favorite characters list for a while! When I start listing out either male or female characters, I feel bad for not listing out the rest, and there are even a few more I wanted to include but couldn't haha. But I started watching Daiya S2 last weekend and it reminded me how much I love Miyuki and his cheekiness, so I'm pretty sure I'll go ahead and add him and maybe a couple others c: there are more I want to include too, so I might make some kind of extended list later on!

Also, I'm sorry about the late reply!! I got quite sick this weekend and took a few days off to recover, but I'm feeling much better now thankfully. Hopefully you've been having a nice week so far! :)

Yeah I was happy once comments started working again. I could care less about the forums returning, lol. Oh and images too! Images being gone was a tad frustrating. Ah yeah I'm a Health Science major and plan to do something in medicine although I'm not quite sure exactly, but I'm a bit of a later bloomer when it comes to Uni :)

I haven't seen the movies yet, I have High Speed downloaded collecting dust, but I was going to save it until the other movies had decent to good releases/subs available so I can watch them all in one go. I havent heard many great things about the movies in general, although the recap ones I didn't expect much from. Still interested for the new footage. You basically hit the nail on the head and once again I was bringing up the same thing to some friends of mine and that was college and how that similar type of drama was going to mesh knowing they're in that part of their life again. Seems like they're going for a bit of a mirrored character dynamic: Ikuya being a rip-off rin and carries a bit of the same angst that early S1 Rin did in the way he approaches swimming and shuts other people out. Now Rin in Australia meets a guy who happens to swim "free" and doesn't give in to competition standards, just does it for the fun and the thrill. So now it's kind like a 4 split dynamic of what we had prior. Idk we'll see what they do now that we're almost 1/3 of the way through. I think you described it well as a cash grab. I'd say the only character who could use that closure was Sousuke but it doesn't look like they're going to do much with him.

Sounds good! I'll be sure to shoot you a message when I can, I'd love to catch up sometime! Uni is starting back up for me so sorry if I'm slow as well.
Remix Jul 23, 2018 6:35 AM
At long last, indeed. Still not 100% but it's close enough, I don't need the forums. I'm doing fine, I've just been enjoying my break until I go back to Uni again in a week.

Omg I was feeling the same about Free so far. It's not a season I was super hyped about because S2 had a really nice ending to it.

I really think Ikuya is some Walmart Rin


I was actually just talking to a friend about this on discord before:



It sort of feels like the concept of a jealous childhood rival is being recycled again, but I hope it turns out to be something much different. Too early to tell, but I'm staying cautiously optimistic. At least the ED is super fun like the previous seasons!

Honestly, it's nice to see you watching stuff again! Speaking of discord, I know I still have you added on there so I hope you don't mind if I shoot you a DM sometime to catch up.
uni Jul 16, 2018 7:26 PM
I still work at the same school I've been at the past couple of years, doing counseling :') our program is expanding a lot this year and our director is quite forward-thinking and likes to pilot many new initiatives, so our office has been pretty busy this summer haha. It makes the work days pass by quickly though, so I can't complain! And I'm glad to hear that your summer has been on the calmer side!! It's also a great thing that you're working things out. Are you still working at the same place? Hopefully the rest of your summer will be just as relaxing and it hasn't gotten too warm on your end!

Ahh a couple of my friends are really into Westworld, so I'm a little familiar with it! It sounds really interesting and since you love it too, maybe I'll check it out sometime c: I've heard about Little Fires Everywhere but didn't actually know much about it, so I looked up the summary just now and it seems like quite a gripping story! Hopefully it'll all come together more cohesively by the end. I think I've only heard a song or two from Years & Years a long time ago, but I listened to the song you have linked on your profile, and it has very nice vibes and the lyrics are so interesting too! I'll try to check out more songs from the album. It's great that you've been into so many interesting things lately :)

Haha, I feel you!! The episodes can get really long, and many of them are even 2.5 hours long. And me too! I was so sad when Jurina's departure was announced, but she should definitely do what's best for her health and well-being. I was a bit taken aback because they announced her ranking during the first elimination last Friday, and I wonder if they could've saved the girl in 59th place, Ikumi, instead because I really liked her :( Jurina is such a scene stealer, even if she's just on the side/in the background, you can usually spot her being physically affectionate with one or some of the girls, which is always endearing to see haha. I wonder how much the rankings will change now that the votes have been reset :o I liked D4 a lot too, and I think it was the right song to choose as their title track, but I liked their whole mini so much that it was hard for me to pick a favorite. And speaking of D4, there's a rumor going around that it's going to be one of the P48 position evaluation songs that Sakura participates in! It'll be interesting to see her perform a song like that. Soyou even said it was unexpected in the episode preview.

I totally agree! It warms my heart to see Apink charting so well after all these years. I'm also excited for Chungha's comeback! All of the different dance breakdowns for love4eva have been such a treat to see. I wonder how the repackage will be, I actually hope they go with a more mature concept this time around (although I absolutely loved their debut) so that Yves and Olivia have more of a chance to shine. And I can't believe we're a month away from OT12!

I don't think I've heard of Planet With before, but let me know how you like it if you decide to watch it! I'll keep it on my radar when I get properly started on summer anime. I haven't had much of a chance to start seasonals yet because I've been preoccupied with jdramas instead, but I'm going to try catching up this week! And yes, I'm definitely looking forward to Free!! I remember we first met a couple weeks before ES started airing, so I have many fond memories of that time and it makes me very happy to see Free back again c: I totally forgot about the movie though, so I'm going to try squeezing that in sometime this week! Maybe even tonight, if time allows for it. Did you have a chance to watch Free yet?

Oh! I forgot to mention this earlier, but I read Solanin a couple months ago! I enjoyed it so much that I actually ended up reading it twice in a row in one sitting. I can definitely see why it's one of your favorites, it's such a wonderful manga with many meaningful themes :')

Lofti! Ellie! How have you been? MAL is finally (semi) working again

Hope you've been well. I remember you lost a bit of interest in anime, will you be checking out anything this season? Just finished the first ep and Free S3 and it was nice to see my boys again
