  7. Saw your comment about not knowing where to start with sports anime, and I raise you Iwatobi Swim Club. That was my bridge into the genre and you might like it.

      @wikkidgrace Thank you,  I'll definitely check it out!

  8. This is very true. The OTM arc seemed so promising and it's a shame what happened. I had hope she would stick it out with them because for once she seemed pretty confident in herself, even going so far as to tell Ton that he didn't own her. I guess what bothers me so much about Haida is that besides his wild crush on Retsuko, the series hasn't given him much of a personality of his own and it makes him seem like this underdog character whose only function in life is to chase after the MC. I would love it if the anime gave me more of a reason to like Haida other than just overstating how much he wants Retsuko. He got a little bit of screen time this season, but it wasn't sufficient to establish him as a relatable character.
  9. So, if you've been watching Aggretsuko, you can probably recognise how relatable it is. The characters are all a part of this adult 9-5 ecosystem. I can't help but root for Retsuko and her quest to find happiness and fulfillment in her life. Currently, we've made it to season 3. I have to get something off my chest here. So-- spoilers ahead. The whole dynamic between Inui, Haida, and Retsuko. I don't feel good about it. This entire time, the series has been spotlighting Retsuko making hard decisions for herself. FFS she has turned down life as a billionaire's sugar baby and rockstar fame-- both whilst finding herself in dire financial straits. It's also been, on the side, building up Haida to be the underdog who is bound to win the girl in the end. I just can't help but feel like Retsuko doesn't want that. Or maybe she does? She's turned him down twice. Inui was totally into him, and it can only be assumed Haida was interested to some degree. I love that Inui had grace in finding out his heart wasn't in it. But where does that leave Haida and Retsuko? He basically forced himself in at the end of the season there. I'll give him points for the confidence, but Retsuko literally told him she wasn't okay and didn't feel safe. So where does this go from here? The season ended on what might have been a cliffhanger. Do you think she will give things a try with Haida? Will she stay or ultimately end things with him? In a narrative sense, I expect the writers will give the prize to Haida. But damn it if that doesn't leave me disappointed. I guess I just don't want her to 'settle'. It seems like the wrong outcome for a character who has such big dreams.
  10. Hmm. I can't say I feel empty, necessarily? Whenever I finish a good anime-- or, more broadly, a good series of any medium, books especially-- I do feel a bit sad that there isn't any more to consume. It does provide content to reflect on and digest, however. And there's always another series to begin and fill the 'void' left by the last. You know it's good when you're left longing for more.
  11. Boomerang // Smash Into Pieces :: My whole life took a tumble when I was around 18, ended up homeless for a brief period and everything. But I can proudly say I picked my own ass up and cut the toxic people out of my life, and I'm generally better off now than I was a decade ago. How Did You Love // Shinedown :: I can't think of a single song that more accurately describes my philosophy on how to live better than this one does. Very Busy People // The Limousines :: I do what I want. Lol. Definitely nails my more eccentric side. Semi-Automatic // Twenty One Pilots :: I frequently have these episodes where I feel despair for the state of the world, the fear makes me physically ill. They are soon muted by the day-to-day task of living. But they're always there, either lurking under cynicism or emerging to cause chaos in my headspace. Hard Out Here // Lily Allen :: Not that I've hidden it or anything, but I'm a feminist. There, I said it! And I have this mama bear in me when it comes to women being told they're 'too this' or 'too that'. It took me nearly my entire life to break away from feeling obligated to conform to how people think I should be, and now? I find it utterly ridiculous, and the acid sarcasm in this song is spot on.
  12. I'm in the process of repurposing one of my clubs- Gaming Hub- into a totally different type of club. At the time it was made, I believe the gaming forum was out of commission. However, since its return, the club has become obsolete. Since I'm maxed out on slots, one of them needs to be sacrificed to make room, and it made more sense to reform GH. So please don't be alarmed if you are removed, I'll open it back up again when I'm ready to introduce my newest little corner to AF, and anyone will be welcome to the new one. :)

  13. Death Note was brilliant and I would love to read the manga if I ever find the time. Welcome!
  14. That's a frowned upon marketing scheme on Nintendo's end to create artificial demand and push presales. Disney did this for years with their Vault scheme. I won't be pre-ordering it for certain, as I'm opposed to both practices on principle. I might consider buying it at some point however, because I did enjoy SMS. Can't say I'm impressed with Nintendo's tactics here to say the least. Especially in the midst of a pandemic where some people are tightening their coinpurses just to be able to afford to eat. In the future, when those people are able to afford something fun, they would have to find the game on eBay and pay an exorbitant price just because Nintendo arbitrarily cancelled production of a hot button series that would sell widely regardless.
