009: Discontinuous Feelings, Subarashiki Hibi

f65954

It has been exactly a week since I finished Subarashiki Hibi (Subahibi), also known as Wonderful Everyday. However, there is a hole in my heart where it once took up my time from 10PM to 12AM several nights, and I have not found something to fill this gap quite yet.

You may have read my review on Steam, or maybe you haven’t, but still despite that there are countless things I want to say and think about with Subahibi that can’t be covered even in that review.

I’ll once again note that I’m not a philosopher. I’m a college student who’s taken an intro to philosophy class and thinks too hard about life sometimes, suffering from depression and an addiction to contemplation. That too, is philosophy in its own sense.

I’m not here to interpret any part of Subahibi because I’m simply unqualified to. I don’t understand half the philosophy that’s in it, and I’m not going to pretend I can.

And with that, let’s drop the formal pretenses and take this into a more casual, sometimes angry musing of Subahibi about my feelings about its praise and my feelings for the work itself.

There will be slight spoilers in CGs and text.

005: Granblue Fantasy

Man, I’ve been meaning to write 3gatsu posts for the last while but I just haven’t unfortunately! I haven’t been really motivated to watch anime lately but I’ll get back on track soon and try to maintain that with the glories of… school.

Anyway, today I’ll be talking about Granblue Fantasy, which is a wonderful game that I and my wallet have been sucked into mercilessly. I find it truly enriching despite the fact that most people, including myself, first heard of it due to the Andira scandal, but that’s ultimately unrelated to why I like it.

Gacha is no good reason to like anything.

002: March Comes in Like a Lion 08

If you know me, you know that 3gatsu no Lion is my favorite anime this season, and that I also love Shaft’s visual motifs in regards to it. This will be an analysis of Episode 8, and hopefully when I have time I’ll be jumping back and reviewing the rest of the show! I mean, it’s not like I’ve watched each episode at least twice.

By the way, these reviews/analyses will be pretty image heavy. Let your bandwidth take a breather!

001: Lusamine

Well, this is one way to start off an analysis blog.

These last two days I took the time to finally finish up my playthrough of Pokemon Moon, and it was an incredibly enjoyable experience. However, there are still a lot of aspects I have a hard time wrapping my mind around, and Lusamine is one of those things. Actually, the main thing.

Spoilers inbound, obviously.
