When massively stressed...

I've been extremely stressed out recently for various reasons but one thing getting me through is my new subscription to Crunchyroll. I've never been a huge anime person but I'm not NOT an anime person, you know?

Anyways, I'm here to agree with spsn that The Ancient Magus's Bride is really good!! I watched the prequel and the first two episodes and can't wait to see where the story goes. It has a somewhat Howl's Moving Castle feeling to it. Maybe the English setting and a hint of Beauty and the Beast.

I also sped-watched my way through Boku No Hero Academy and read all the English translated manga volumes on kindle. It's SO SHONEN I CAN'T EVEN and I loved it. I'm not a superhero person--actually I usually hate superhero stuff--but for some reason the Japanese interpretation of "heroes" doesn't annoy me the way American superheroes always do.


Here's the thing, you will be tempted to ship Deku/Bakugo after the first season but don't fall into that trap because season two has.... omg I won't even spoil you but it's good angsty backstory stuff.

Plus, there is a ship that's super popular because of stuff that happens in the manga? I don't know what but I also enjoyed reading that fic too.

Anyway there are a TON of good writers in this fandom for whatever reason.

AND THEN I just started Barakamon this morning which I've found extremely relaxing in a very slice-of-life inaka village personality way.

^^ This is me at all times.

But I'm going to be a pile of nerves for another couple weeks so HIT ME WITH YOUR RECS FOR RELAXING AND/OR ENGROSSING THINGS.

Ah! Taemin and Arashi albums. I have them but haven't listened yet. Today! ♥

AND NEW EBI SINGLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, you got a subscription! Have you watched One Punch Man or Mob Psycho 100? Those two are my all time favorites. I just mostly wanted to mention the two series you talked about are two I'm familiar with! Aside from OPM and MP100, Hero Academia is my third series I'm quite invested in, although I haven't read since chapter 100-something I think. XD

AH!!!!! I love those dumb kids so much!! ♥

Todoroki-kun! Bakugo! Deku! Tokoyami! I'm wary of reading on the scanlation sites so I've only read through chapter 80 (?) But the next volume is coming soon. Where I left off is Bakugo disappearing at the training camp!!!!!!!!! Bakugooooooooooooooo! ♥

Who is your favorite???

I haven't seen One punch man or Mob Psycho!! I will try it once I'm done with Barakamon. I didn't think I would like this as much as I did but it's so relaxing somehow.

It's chill! It's better even, that you don't read on scanlation sites. I got into it before it ever was officially released in English so that was the option at the time. I am probably just gonna read the volumes as it comes in the library!

I love all the kids, so that's a difficult question. Aizawa-sensei, Tsuyu, Iida and Todoroki are to name of few. Of course Deku is obvious! That's where I left off in the manga too!

I haven't tried Bakaramon. Is it like slow-paced slice of life?

Barakamon was really good, but even better is the manga, which is ongoing and also the prequel manga Handa-kun. I'm really into that character lol. Though, whatever you do, DON'T watch the Handa-kun anime, it's awful. :(

HAHA "it's so shonen I can't even" made me laugh XD I LOVE Boku no Hero Academia too! And I have like 0 interest in marvel and dc and all those superhero stuff. I think it's the way Horikoshi captured and presented an entire hero society that's really interesting((: Can't wait for the next chapter and the next season of the anime!

The Ancient Magnus' Bride looks really cool. Imma check it out, thanks for sharing!
