13 July 2013 - Saturday

Instead of having brunch with friends (and being in the way and doing the wrong thing), I stayed home and did laundry and went "blblblblblblbl".

Bunny Drop (Yumi Unita) volume 8 makes me think, "How does that mechanism work in humans? Does it even actually work, or do people just pretend it does?"

Conservations of Shadows (Yoon Ha Lee) is a collection of strange and imaginative short stories that remind me a bit of Hitherby's work. Most of them are fantasy; several of them are space-going fantasy, which is something we don't see much of. I don't necessarily understand them, especially the quantum warfare one, but what I understand is awesome, if sometimes tragic.

Constellation Games (Leonard Richardson) is a story of first contact, post-scarcity non-hierarchical society, and reviews of alien videogames. The videogames are in fact pretty alien, which is good because translation makes the aliens seem fairly human (but not as stupid or crazy as actual humans).

  • Hanasaku Iroha 25-26: It is entirely appropriate that the end is optimistic but has a lot of hard work ahead of the characters, since this show is all about the value of hard work (and festing it up).
  • Cross Game 13: It's not sports anime without secret training!
  • Persona4 10-11: I think we've now been introduced to everyone in the opening credits, although Boy Detective still has to get his Persona. Then, the real doom can start!
  • Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood 1-2: All the backstory that the original series made us wait dozens of episodes for is there in the first two episodes.

I think I oppressed Aspen too much, because she now hops out of the Basket of Warmth and hides when I get too close. Or maybe it's just that the basket isn't as appealing during the summer.
