excuse me if this makes very little sense as i have been drinking and it is almost eleven pm on a wednesday but today i walked into my favourite cafe and the frenchman who makes my coffee, didier, told me about how he had just discovered that the woman who had left as I came in happened to live on the same street as his brother, “isn’t the world remarkable?” he said to me. I laughed, “don’t you wonder about how many people you meet on a daily basis that you have something in common with without realising?”
Tonight I had beers with a couple of guys, they were old friends. “How long have you known each other?” I asked. They laughed, “guess!” Turns our they shared a wetnurse, a connection their mothers didn’t discover until they became friends years later.
As I walked to the train I texted my housemate to ask where she was, if she wanted to meet up before we headed home. Suddenly I heard my name called as she ran across the station towards me. “Oh how strange, I just messaged you!”
Sometimes the world feels very large and our differences seem unbridgeable. Other days we run into one another over and over again, and I am glad to recognise friends.
Akihiko: So, who wants to make some money?
Uenoyama: What happened?
Akihiko: Not important, but I need someone to take the fall. Five bucks.
Haruki, in the background: WHO DID THIS!?!
Uenoyama: … make it ten
Akihiko: Deal. I got him, Haruki!
Hello petal! The hype around Mo Dao Zu Shi is at its peak, so much that I myself I’ve finally given in after a full year of seeing it floating around and tempting me.
I personally started with reading the novel, you can read it here for free!
If you prefer to watch it, the donghua (the Chinese animation) is reeeeeeally good, I watched it all and the animation, the music and the voice acting is of really high quality, it won’t make you miss Japanese animation at all. I can’t give you a link since I didn’t watch it on any “official” channels, but with some googling you will surely find it, or come off anon and send me a DM and I will give you the link!
Probably the most hyped adaptation of mdzs is “The Untamed”, the live-action. I won’t recommend starting from it because it’s very loosely based on the novel, so much that it feels like a canon-divergent fanfiction, not to mention it’s the most censored adaptation. It’s still good and very enjoyable (and the actors are incredible), but I won’t recommend it as a first approach to the story!
Have fun on the path to demonic cultivation!
I saw this in some post a while ago.
When ending a show, especially a beloved one, the idea of to have a finale which not only ties up loose ends but also send off characters in a way that leaves you satisfied. It’s all well and good to end on a note which keeps you wanting more, but the best ends leave you with an end that you can accept while still letting your imagination run wild if that’s your shtick.
It was so beautifully done! All our characters got the perfect send off, everything ended up the way it was meant to, all the loose ends were tied up and even though I didn’t want such a good show to end, not once did I feel sad throughout.
This show ended right when it needed to, and it ended so well that I can’t even say I want more because I’m not sure what more I could ask for! Sure, we can think about all the Jeremy Beremys Team Cockroach/The Soul Squad spent together, imagine Tahani’s work as an architect, Michael’s life as a human, Janet’s eternity or the after afterlife, but I’m good. I can think of all this without wanting more, because the show gave us just enough. I’ve never needed to visit The Good Place fandom much since the show already gave us what we all needed.
Here’s to one of the most satisfying, funniest, most intelligent and brilliant shows I’ve seen. Thank you for the laughs and thoughts!
i didnt hardcore love kuroo or anything when i first watched haikyuu but i recently watched a video of him saying oya oya oya and i couldnt stop thinking about this boy ever since
I hardcore love Kuroo, both his inside and outside persona *_*
Yes but this fits so well with my Kuroo has a sister hc and why not merge them together in the TETSU HAS TWIN BROTHERS HC
he’s so much more than that, but I can’t say that I disagree with you, my dear
Tanaka appreciation post
His fire will never die
Energy for days
Shitty boy aesthetic
Will fight u
He just a little boy who loves to play volleyball with his friends
Best bromance award
Loves his neesan
Such a joker
V good senpai
Hes usually thought of as “the idiot” or “the player” but we sometimes forget that he is a friendly boy who is always reliable, and though his attacks can be overshadowed by hinatas and asahis, he’s very strong too and he deserves lots of love bc he is good.
THE BEST BOY!
Ya hear me shitty bois?! xD
The best senpai (along with Noya), so amazing, so reliable, a true future (is it past now?) Ace: Tanaka Ryūnosuke <3
