Coming of Age

Not much to say about Ch. 34. It’s mostly there to show that Shiina’s growing up, entering junior high, and time has passed since Hiro died. Shiina’s mother still sucks, Takeo is still a pervert, Sudou is still Sudou, and Shiina’s dad is still a lolicon.


Now Shiina is too old so he refuses to take baths with her, no matter how much she begs him… Continue reading Narutaru Ch. 34 – 36 — Filtering

Ch. 30 Summary: Tatsumi and another guy from the organization buy flowers. The worker at the flower shop is revealed to be Satou’s boyfriend.

Policing Sexuality

We’re back to some shorter chapters. Ch. 30 focuses on Tatsumi and his organization. Their organization has a figurehead who can be easily replaced if necessary and their organization continues. As the other person points out, it’s essentially a dictatorship. Tatsumi claims that this kind of organization is necessary to move forward, for the benefit of the people. It’s a de-humanizing, self-perpetuating organization, where people live in slavery to the principalities and powers, rather than the other way around.

My Favorite Anime 2023 Addendum

I last updated my list of favorites in 2014. I always thought it was mostly a futile exercise: how am I supposed to compare things that are so radically different, aside from sharing a common medium? Every time you’d ask me you’d get a different answer.

So instead of updating the list, this time I’m just going to tell you all a bunch of my favorite anime since then. Most of them are in alphabetical order— but I did make an attempt at ranking the top 15. Enjoy! And please share what you think I left out!

Click the links for more details about each show.

I don’t even know how to explain this. A corrupt cop eats bread and saves the country?? It is wild while having a relaxed tone, and some fascinating characters. I need to rewatch this.

Aho Girl
So stupid and so funny. Just a really well made comedy. Kanojo mo Kanojo by the same author was great too but Aho Girl had the perfect adaptation.

Akiba Maid War
It was when the main character was tied to a chair, being drowned by a rival maid in a tub of tomato juice, when her rival threw a live goat at her, that I truly fell in love with Akiba Maid Wars. Continue reading My Favorite Anime 2023 Addendum
