I wish there was a 7-day gap where I can think about nothing but the best music, my favourite friends, easy cigarettes, yummy food, endless drinks and mind-bending toys. I was thinking of this in the context of ‘avoiding the relentless amount of work thrown at my face‘, but at this very second, I realised: can’t I do that as part of my work?
For the past 5-10 years, all the cliched, formulated plots in anime really contributed to my jadedness and Sid’s resentment of otakus. Then I saw Cromartie High, and then I was reminded why I got into Anime in the first place. Everything I like about it is because of that Japanese sense of humour which you can’t find elsewhere.
