    Haibane Renmei was so good and continues to be so good for my "struggling with suicidal urges" self.

    Just started One Piece. The manga. 22 chapters down. I question why I have started this quest. Berserk too a fuck ton out of me to catch up with what I have with and it isn't over 800 fucking chapters. I should read more Berserk soon because god I love that series so much. I love it and I hate when people go "Oh no Berserk is about how people are awful and things are hopeless".

    did we read the same comic

    i have read few things as weirdly optimistic as the ending of the conviction arc

    Like yeah shit's fucking terrible, but god dammit we survived through hell. And with people who aren't completely terrible! It's almost Tolkienian in its refusal to go "yeah there's no point let's give up now". Because it's easy to have hope and to "struggle" when things are going well. It's hard to do that when seemingly the entire world itself is out to fucking end you. But those moments are when it really counts and it is doable.

    it hurts me how bad the berserk 201x anime is. why do both the director and one of the studios that worked on it exclusively have experoence making slice of life anime. why does only one of the studios that worked on it have any experience with 3d cgi whatsoever. why does the one studio with 3d cgi experience have no experience making an anime.

    it's such a shame because berserk itself is SO GOOD

    Yesss. It's one of my favs. I love Natsuo so much. Problematic fave, I think is the term?

    Coincidentally his videos are why I am now reading One Piece and watching Hunter x Hunter. HxH which I had absolutely no interest in until I was spoiled to the extent you get in that video on it. I went from a very solid "Meh. I've seen like 20 of these things already," to "Actually yes please sign me up for being emotionally traumatized?"

    So uhhhhh I'm very, very, very far behind the curve and I'm sure everyone has already gotten sick of it and moved on, but Yuri on Ice sure is pretty and warm and just overall nice feeling

    I started watching Hunter X Hunter because I thought it looked like a nice light throwaway background viewing type of show, ended up absolutely binging it and thoroughly obsessed. The Chimaera Ant arc destroyed me.

    Pff. You go from "Eh, it's a cute shounen thing to listen to I guess" to "Oh...oh my god. OH GOD NO. oh no what is that." Those are some of the most fun times with a work of art I think. Though I will say that in this case that particular light throwaway shounen image kept me from watching it until someone was like "Hey, yo there's like scarily fucked up depictions of genocide in it". So that sort of thing can be both a positive thing and a detriment I feel.

    Also now thinking about how when I went in to Berserk I went in with the knowledge that shit was going to get super fucked up. Especially by the end of the Golden Age. So I was like "Yeah I'll be fine. I've seen some shit."

    I was not fine. I was not prepared. I suppose I've seen things of equal terribleness but there was a sort of horrific intensity to the experience that I haven't had matched by other incredibly fucked up shit. And I couldn't stop fucking reading it because holy fucking shit look at what's fucking happening.

    ... I'm going to have to give Berserk a read, aren't I.

    HxH: I don't think I ever did a 180 on a character faster than I did with Killua. Literally from "oh this is the bratty friendrival" to "OH GOD NO someone save this poor child".

    Oh gods yes. Berserk can be a very rough read sometimes but the end of the Golden Age legitimately fucked me up for a bit, and the end of the Conviction arc is one of the most beautiful things I've seen managed in fiction yet emotionally speaking. It's up there with the ending of LotR when Sam and Frodo are on the mountainside and completely incapable of escaping.
