What a Hopeless Assistant

Well I guess he knows her weaknesses…

Watching Jibaku Shounen Hanako-Kun, “Toilet Bound Hanako-Kun”, on Hulu. Give it a watch!

Like Mold

While I can’t say I’ve ever wanted a love interest as a slave (unless that’s how they like it haha j/k), I have a talent for growing on people slowly over time like mold.

Heartgasm

I’ve been watching Lovely Complex on Crunchyroll/VRV. It’s an anime full of comedy and romance. Some episodes are almost too awkward to watch, but each have funny moments. Otani and Koizumi are fun, they have comedic banter, and are friends that truly care for each other. They have wonderful friends that always cheer them on. I’m only on episode eleven, so I’m hoping it’ll work out for them. I’m definitely rooting for them!

I like that the message is, it doesn’t matter about your looks, or your negative perception of your looks (because we all know at least one person, if not ourselves, who is fixated on some flaw no one else notices or other people actually like), what really matters is on the inside and your chemistry and how you vibe with someone. Here are some moments of hilarity from this episode, including a video game Koizumi was playing and a shrine visit (where Koizumi was praying extra hard).

A Loan

****SPOILERS FOR MY HERO ACADEMIA: HEROES RISING***

What a great crowd for the premiere showing of My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising. I liked how people came wearing their fan gear, I know I did! And such enthusiasm for the film. I thought I bought a ticket for the subtitled showing, since that’s how I watch the series, but it ended up being the dubbed showing! I was able to enjoy the movie after I acclimated to the different voice actors and language. The film was fantastic and I definitely preferred it over the first My Hero Academia movie.

The biggest shock was when Deku shared One for All for Bakugo when they teamed up against Nine. Did anyone (who didn’t read the manga) see that coming? I certainly didn’t! But after the battle it seems Bakugo doesn’t remember and Deku still has his quirk. I wonder if Deku’s intention for it “being a loan” made it revert back to him? I have so many questions now! Anyways, check out the movie if you haven’t already! You get to see the students on their own running an agency, new characters with interesting quirks, and Bakugo and Deku getting along (kind of).

Kon Runs Away

I started watching Bleach on Hulu. When my brother said I’d be watching it forever, I thought he was being funny, but I googled it and looks like there’s sixteen seasons!

At first glance, the personality of Ichigo Kurosaki reminded me of Bakugo from My Hero Academia (maybe that sentence should be reversed, considering which was created first). But Ichigo is definitely his own character. He isn’t shy about defending what, and who, is important to him. He is proud, and sometimes borderline cocky, but I wouldn’t say he’s arrogant. Talking about feelings isn’t something he enjoys discussing, but he does it. I appreciate that a male lead is able to do that, without it being a big issue. Keeping sight of the bigger picture, and the safety of others at the top of his concern, he can even turn rivals into friends like UryĆ« Ishida. I also admire Ichigo’s ability to keep calm under pressure.

I’m only in the midst of season one, but I’m enjoying it! The spiritual element is intriguing to me. I like that Rukia Kuchiki, Orihime Inoue, Tatsuki Arisawa, Karin Kurosaki, and Yuzu Kurosaki have their own unique personalities. They’re each strong in their own way, whether it’s fighting hollows, running a household, martial arts practitioner, mentoring, mentally tough, fearless, defenders, or being so warm in kindness and heart that you positively impact those around you daily.

And Kon, the soul who dwells in the lion stuffed animal, is always good for a laugh! Like these scenes, from Season 1, Episode 15 of Bleach…
