There’s a live action drama version as well which I might watch later…kinda wondering how they handled the lesbian subtext (or rather obvious-text, in some places) tbh
Watched the first season of KAKEGURUI (anime version). It's about an elite high school full of compulsive gamblers who are obsessed with money and psychologically torturing their fellow students.
It's completely bonkers, very over the top, and almost grotesque at some points...I really enjoyed it, weirdly enough, and am planning to watch the 2nd season.
visited the dentist 🦷
Tooth has been looked at & it has a big ol’ cavity! Gonna get it filled next week & hope that takes care of it, otherwise I’ll need a root canal. ☹️ Luckily fillings and root canals are all covered on my insurance (up to a certain point, the root canal needs approval).
Finished TIGER & BUNNY, a superhero show set in an alternate 1970s pseudo-NYC. I like the character design and some of it was fun, but overall I was kinda bored. It’s very queer (in the way GOOD OMENS is queer) and it has some excellent Ho Yay moments, so I can see why it’s so popular with fandom.
Finished the 2nd season of HAIKYUU late last night and it was very exciting! I have the 3rd season ready to go soon, too (not on Netflix).
Plus now I've seen enough of the show that I can start reading fanfic without having to worry about major spoilers. Woohoo!
practice self care by doing a breathing exercise at lunch. take a walk away from your desk for 15 minutes to recenter. be unavailable for calls and texts between the hours of 1am and noon. quit your job and never return. leave a series and cryptic messages and clues in your bedroom. move into the nocturnal animal enclosure at the zoo. they will never find you.
I "accidentally" binge watched the first season of HAIKYUU today and it was REALLY fun! I keep thinking I don't like sports anime and then I always end up enjoying them anyway.
This one is less cheesy than some other shows & I like all the chemistry the characters have with each other. Looking forward to finally reading all that fanfic waiting on AO3 once I finish season 2 (tomorrow, after I do something resembling work).
ironically the people who keep arguing in comments about who's gay or not will keep getting slash fandom vids on their FYP because TikTok's algo says they're engaging with that content & thus feeds them more of that content
remember when sherlock was big and we all shipped lestrade/mycroft even though they never interacted in the canon, that's the kinda thing I want to see in more fandoms
(probably it's the homophobes who give a fuck)
maybe it's because I've been in slash fandoms for decades and am used to ignoring canon for the sake of shipping, but who cares what canon says. make everyone gay in your fanfics, who gives a fuck
I guess this is a TV thread now:
THE DISASTROUS LIFE OF SAIKI K, season 1: so funny in parts it actually made me laugh out loud. OTOH it’s very fast paced and energetic & I’m exhausted after binging 25 episodes. I’d continue the series except seasons 2-3 aren’t dubbed and idk if I’d be able to keep up with the subtitles
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
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?
Aha! Nevermind, I found a secondary website that actually has things listed, including whether the dentist is taking new patients. yay!
