    By the power vested in my by the Internet, I hereby declare myself going off topic.

    Y’all. Y’ALL. The anime Made in Abyss manipulates your feelings and YOU LIKE IT. It has a super chibi/moe art style that would bother me more if it had more adult characters onscreen for longer, but since our main duo is, like, 12 years old, it passes. But if my senses had learned anything from Madoka Magica, all this cute sh*t means we are getting STABBED RIGHT IN THE KIDNEY OF OUR EMOTIONS when they break these loveable characters right in front of our faces. And I wasn’t wrong, but they did it very well. And the environments of the Abyss are inventive, and Riko is driven and adorable and resourceful and adorable and resilient as heck. And Reg the android/cyborg/something or other is strong but not nearly as resilient or decisive as Riko but still adorable and they make a good team.

    Opening song, sung by the Japanese voice actors (translation in the closed captions):

    • Maybe I’ll get to this one some day. Madoka Magica is on my list, too. I think Madoka might have even been written by the same person who wrote the novels for Fate Zero, though I don’t remember for sure.

  2. Sounds like an interesting book, and I like the style of the brushstrokes and such on the cover. Glad you’re finally realizing your dreams 🙂
