I'm also 4.5 episodes into LITTLE WITCH ACADEMIA and don't know if I'm going to continue. It's gotten really good reviews (and is on several best-of lists) but I don't really vibe with the characters yet

so...idk... 🧹✨

Also watched:

THE WAY OF THE HOUSEHUSBAND, about an ex-Yakuza who got married and now does househusband things. Very funny and surprisingly wholesome. The animation took a bit to get used to (it's more like a "motion comic") but I ended up liking it.

I'm on an anime kick, so I watched:

ERASED, a thriller/mystery about a guy who can travel back in time to prevent tragedies, and who travels 18 years into the past to stop his middle school classmates from being murdered.

I thought it was pretty good, though the last episode was the weakest & the murder plot/murderer's motive seemed really convoluted. Apparently the manga was better at explaining things.

My old dentist actually accepts my freebie insurance! I have an appointment for next week. I hope it's just a simple filling and not a crown situation, but either way I want to get this taken care of so I can chew on BOTH sides of my mouth again 🦷

I do wish Nezuko had more to do beside sleep all the time…also if she isn’t going to eat humans then why does she have to stay muzzled?

Show thread

Finished watching the first season of Demon Slayer & I really liked it! Neat how they had emotional depth for the demons without excusing their bad behavior because of a tragic past.

Aha! Nevermind, I found a secondary website that actually has things listed, including whether the dentist is taking new patients. yay!

Show thread

So the good news is that my freebie health care plan covers dental stuff including fillings, the bad news is that I can't figure out how to find a dentist that's open to new patients and may have to call the hotline for help 💀

do I have summer doldrums or am I just bummed that this is the second summer of COVID ravaging the country

seriously contemplating getting an AOL email address just to fuck with people

2nd Outer Worlds play through has already gone awry because I can’t bring myself to be mean to Pavarti so instead I’m gonna just really focus on trying to max out dialogue options— there’s a few choices where you need 100 dialogue points and I think I only every got up to 80 even with fancy armor bonuses

Show thread

Bonus happy things: TONS of female characters in important jobs everywhere (including 3/6 companions), cute lesbian romance subplot (AND asexual rep within that romance), lots of classic sci-fi references, heartwarming ending where all your friends come help

Show thread

Things I didn’t vibe with: the talking face animations were creepy and lifeless; consumables were too complex (especially for a run focused on story and not fighting), can’t mark things on the map so I definitely left some locked doors “to come back to” forgotten entirely

Show thread

Online reviews often complain of short playtime, but I sunk at least 30 hours into it which is pretty good for a game regularly on sale for $20. There's two DLCs available for another $25 and I"m definitely going to buy them as soon as both are available for the Switch.

AND I just started another play-through so I could try other story choices/dialogue options and see what happens.

Show thread

I played it on whatever the super easy mode is called-- I don't enjoy FPS as much as I love a good visual novel, so that let me focus on exploring the world without being immediately killed by a rabid space dog. PLUS there's enough dialogue variety that I could play a Very Nice person and make friends with (nearly) everyone, which was great!

Show thread

Have been obsessively playing THE OUTER WORLDS for the last week and just finished the main story yesterday. LOVED IT! It's a good mix of RPG/FPS/visual novel. Excellent characters, fun story, good music and art design, and dialogue choices actually have consequences!

or maybe start a separate fanfic spreadsheet? hmmmmmmm

Show thread

Seriously tempted to start putting novel length fanfics on my book tracking spreadsheet this year…hmmmmmm….

I don't know why I keep trying to trick myself into NOT re-listening to TAZ: Balance for the 17th time but it's probably the same part of me that starts reading novel-length fanfics at 2am

I did check for librarian jobs around here and there's some decent ones open-- including at my old library-- but thinking about going thru the whole process of getting that job makes me feel tired
