I just write thoughts on anime, games, music, movies, or other things that are on my mind. Occasionally a poem or short story might come up.
My Thoughts on Naoki Urasawa's Monster
Naoki Urasawa's Monster is a classic anime. But having only been actively into anime for a few years now, it wasn't one I had watched before--as until recently it wasn't really available on any streaming platforms in my location.
"We Shall Overcome" and other songs for hope and change
The conflict in Ukraine certainly isn't the first time the entire world was united in protest over injustice. But it is definitely the biggest moment in recent time. Every war is unjust, and it's always innocent bystanders who suffer the most. Something we, as a collective, have realized at LEAST since the Korean war. But somehow, wars keep happening. And people keep getting hurt and losing their lives and livelihood for nothing.
"Alone" doesn't always mean "lonely"
Recently I saw a TikTok of a girl crying on a train while looking at an elderly man who was sitting alone, adjacent to her. (I'm not going to post it here because it was from a smaller creator, and I don't want to indirectly send hate their way.) The caption was praising this girl (the poster's sister) for having such a huge heart for feeling compassion for an old man. Other comments were praising her for being an empath and understanding his "pain" so much.
I saw myself on ThisPersonDoesNotExist.com
I didn't think much of it. I am very average looking, after all. And the website professes to be an AI that takes average facial features and mixes them together to create a new person. Besides, this website doesn't know every person in the world. It's not unreasonable to assume some of these people who "do not exist" actually do.
My Thoughts on JJBA: Stone Ocean Trailer
If you're a JoJo fan, or even just closely associated with people who are, then by now you are probably well aware that a trailer for the upcoming Stone Ocean anime adaptation has dropped. As someone who only finished the Stone Ocean manga not too long ago, and still has it fresh in their mind, I was absolutely psyched when the trailer for the anime adaptation finally dropped.
