I appreciate anime studios that make recap episodes or movies.
Sometimes I find out an anime I watched got a sequel and it's been such a long time since I've watched the original that I've forgotten a lot of details and most of what it was about.
Recaps save me the time of having to rewatch an entire series just to sort of refresh my memory.
My local grocery store started stocking the new Zero Sugar Mountain Dew Baja Blast. I tried it and it's pretty good. I wish the taste was stronger though. It tastes somewhat watery. Like the flavor is very mild compared to other zero sugar drinks. It's not bad and I still like it. I just wish it had a stronger taste.
I initially disliked Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken because the character design—especially the tall girl's design—seemed really weird to me. Like the mouth thing.
I've watched several clips of it after hearing what a great anime it is and now I'm really interested. I guess that's why they say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. I rarely watch currently airing anime, but I may make an exception with this anime.
I just tried the Monster Maxx Mango Matic energy drink. This may be the sourest energy drink I've ever had.
The sour taste is overpowering and I don't recommend it unless you love sour tasting drinks.
They claim to inject these drinks with nitrous oxide. Would that affect the taste at all? Maybe I just got a bad flavor. Have any of you tried the other ones? Are they good?
There's a cool Twitch streamer I came across who's also a j-pop idol. Her name is Kaori Horiuchi and she's a member of the idol group Bakusute Sotokanda Icchome.
She streams in both Japanese and English and her English pronunciation is perfect. I honestly thought English was her native language when I first saw her. She plays LoL and Stardew Valley.
I recommend checking her out. She's not very well known and deserves more fans. Her Twitch name is Kaori_BSP. She also has a solo music video if anyone's interested.
I recently watched the anime movie Garden of Words. I honestly didn't think I would like it and it was boring at first, but I'm so glad I watched it.
Movies don't typically affect me emotionally that much, but GoW was an exception. I cried a little bit at two different parts.
It's a bit slow and uninteresting at first, but it gets better. It's a fantastic movie and probably the best one I've seen recently.
I came across a neat tool for MyAnimeList. You put in your MAL username and the site generates a bunch of interesting stats and info. The site is https://anime.plus
Here's some examples of what it shows:
-The percentage of anime you've watched out of every anime that's been released (I've only watched 2.21% of all anime)
-Total number of franchises watched
-Average time a day spent watching anime
-Most watched types of anime (TV, movie, OVA, etc) and most watched genres
-Anime recommendations based on all the anime you've watched
-Cool achievements and a leveling system. You can rank up by watching a certain amount of episodes in a specific genre.
For example, your slice of life rating is level 1 and if you watch 20 more slice of life anime, you rank up to level 2.
I believe once you reach a certain level, you unlock an achievement.
Mina of #TWICE is planning on attending an upcoming fan event. This will be her first public appearance in 4 months. She took a break from the group back in August when she was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.
I hope she's doing well now and isn't being pressured to return when she's not ready. I would rather her take as much time as she needs to recover than return when she's not 100%.
I know what it's like to have an anxiety disorder and how debilitating it can be. I hope she's okay.
My only friend no longer wants to be my friend. I'm probably better off alone anyway. I'm so sick of this mundane and pointless life. Every day is the same. Wake up, browse reddit all day, eat, and then go to sleep. I'm so sick of it all. I just want to die and not have to deal with life anymore.
