No Sense of Direction

I’m watching Mushishi on Hulu. In this particular scene, I feel like Ginko is speaking to me directly.

Yup and I still get lost. Thank God for Waze or I’d never make it anywhere!

Ah. Is this the first time you’ve been lost Ginko? Well don’t panic, for some reason that always makes things worse.

Wait, I forgot who I’m talking to.

Ginko is always cool-headed and never stresses. He is pretty cool that way.

At least he’s kept his sense of humor.

Dried Fish

I feel personally attacked! And like I found my anime soul sister…so…

This was one of the first animes I watched, so it’ll always have a special place in my heart (along with Maid Sama, Special A, The Disastrous Life of Saiki K, Kamisama Kiss, and Noragami). I’m watching on Hulu.

While I relate to Umaru in many ways, I’d like to think I’m not a brat.

At least I hope not.

Meanwhile her big brother is always patient, thoughtful, and kind. And he spends time with her.

He plays video games with her, they enjoy meals and conversation, and even shop for groceries together. I’m curious about the background of the Doma family and how she came to live with her older brother. But he’s definitely a hard worker and a good parent figure. He never seems bitter about taking care of her or like his quality of life is less with her around. He’d appreciate her taking better care of things and being more considerate and responsible, but he genuinely seems happy. Although they do have tiffs like all siblings do.

Umaru is top of her class, excels in piano, sports, and is doing great at school. So it’s difficult to scold her when she’s laying around at home. In her free time she’s playing video games (if not watching anime, reading manga, scrolling online, snacking, or napping). While her brother has little, to no free time, and is not great at video games.

Friends Sharing Their Favorite Food

Apparently everyone’s favorite food was being served at UA today, or Lunch-Rush can do special orders. Deku has his pork cutlet, Iida was having his beef stew, and Todoroki his soba noodles.

Favorite food aside, this was my favorite scene of this episode, because it showed how close the students of class 1A are, and what good friends they’ve become. And that it’s okay to check on your friends when you notice something’s up, to ask difficult questions, and to be vulnerable.

That sounds familiar…

Iida and Todorki said it best. They checked on Deku and let him know it was okay to feel however he felt. But it also doesn’t hurt to offer your friend some of your favorite food!

Now THAT'S a Confession!

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

Yes! A romance anime that starts off with a confession in the first episode, instead of having us wait until the last episode of the season (or in some cases never to come). And he did such a great job in confessing too! *Swoon*

Well I wish she didn’t insist on them being secret lovers, but I guess we’ll see how it goes…I’m cautiously optimistic.

Boarding School Juliet

I’ve been watching Mushishi on Hulu, and enjoying it, but it tends to have a heaviness to it so I was looking for a comedy, or something lighthearted to enjoy this Thanksgiving. On Amazon Prime, I saw Boarding School Juliet (Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet). I just finished the first episode and it was exactly what I was looking for. Although it’s obviously based on Romeo and Juliet, I’m hoping for a happier ending!

Haha ah isn’t that what we all do….

Problem Child

I love Aizawa. He’s such a great teacher and mentor.

LOL aww Kirishima
