A Quick Update

7 May
Oh yes.

Oh yes.

My apologies guys, I’ve been out of commission for most of the weekend with the most epic allergy attack/cold I’ve ever personally experienced. I’m giving serious thought to filing a police report against my sinuses for physical assault.

I thought though that I would pop in and assure anyone who has been waiting that there are posts forthcoming, namely my review of the fifth episode of Aku no Hana. Take a gander at that top photo if you want a glimpse of what’s in store. I very much enjoyed this episode for a variety of reasons, one of them namely being how well it captured the true awkwardness of Japanese teenagers, especially when paired with anything remotely “romantic”. Seriously, Junior High School boys are some of the most awkward and unsure creatures I have ever encountered, and you very rarely seriously see the truth of it and yet Aku no Hana captured it beautifully. This will also lead into some points I want to make about the Japanese dating scene and gender roles. So look forward to that tomorrow!

Also, I’m working on some longer form pieces and revisiting some older and much loved shows to do so. I don’t want to spoil it, but I think one of them will actually pair nicely with topics I’m going to touch on in this AnH review. I’m all about dem thematic tie ins yo.

So there you have it, some stuff to look forward to. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to be miserable with my congested face. Matta ne!
