Hi, I’m a writer. My hobbies include not writing.

Alright, babies. I’ve never heard of this anime before today, and judging by the trailer’s views, neither have a lot of anime lovers. Reasons why everyone should watch it right now:
- The main protagonists are a fine as hell lady of color and her mixed daughter
- The main antagonist is a super fabulous woman of color, in an actual position of power, who rocks natural hair like a boss
- Michiko, the main character, is canonically bi and not a single fuck is given
- The art is fucking perfect
- There is an actual coherent and complex plot
- All the main characters have a billion different costumes and they are all super cosplay worthy
- There are two full seasons, both of which are already out~
The show is called Michiko & Hatchin and the first episode of the English Dub can be found in full right HERE.
Uh, Michael, I think I found our next simul-watch anime.
Free! is SO CUTE. You think it’s about swimming and it’s kind of about swimming but more about boys and their ~emotions~ that they aren’t ashamed to have, it’s great.
I swear the swimming is only there because the animators decided they didn’t feel like drawing shirts but couldn’t get the go-ahead to make it Iwatobi Strip Club.
Got all the way through Free! already and oh my god, it’s so cute how they start you off with this super shounen-sounding opening theme and then the whole actual show is literally just a bunch of attractive dudes seducing each other with their wet muscular bodies and maybe they should take their clothes off for each other one more time just to be sure, maybe? Maybe Gou is putting something in the water, I don’t even know.
I had to take a breather on Kill La Kill after episode nine because while it’s really good and I really dig all the characters I’m just … I just can’t handle that many panty shots where the girls aren’t even wearing panties, okay? Okay. I AM HUMAN, I HAVE LIMITS.
Anyway I promised the little brother I’d watch the whole thing, so I’ll get back to it in another day or two, if only so I can harass him into drawing 63!Gamako, or whatever that ship name is, because yes please.
daunt replied to your photoset “CON IS MY FAVORITE THING, YOU GUYS. ♥ ECCC haul, pretty much all of…”
Ahhh Thank you so much! :’))))
THEY’RE JUST SUCH NICE PRINTS. I can’t even bring myself to hang them up because I don’t have any frames and I don’t want to get tape gunk all over their backs or stick tacks through them, it’s terrible.
I finally started watching Kill La Kill and Free!, and I gotta say, anime has really upped its game in regards to how much half-naked homoerotic subtext it can squeeze into twenty-three minutes, I am genuinely impressed. Considering I started out with Sailor Moon and DBZ, gramma and granddaddy of “it’s not a real fight scene until someone takes their clothes off”, this is a serious achievement.
Also I totally thought the fandoms were exaggerating Mako’s demented motivational speeches and Rin’s wounded baby seal crybaby face, but no, no they were not.
CON IS MY FAVORITE THING, YOU GUYS. ♥
ECCC haul, pretty much all of which was collected in the scant hour I actually got away from my department on Saturday:
Kirby Krackle's most recent CD, stickers and a keychain from Minor Acts of Heroism, a T-shirt from Unicorn Empire (which they nicely let me try on beforehand since the clothing industry is a living nightmare and I never know if anything’s going to fit me, so yay!), and prints from Daunt, Cara McGee, and Babs Tarr, who were all super-nice in person. I pretty much never buy prints but theirs are all so greaaat, it was totally worth it.
I also grabbed the little con-exclusive makeup bundle from Espionage Cosmetics and was really impressed with how well the nail wraps held up during the weekend chaos, holy crap, they’re tough! Plus I finally got to see Optimystical Studios' Heroes and Inspirations line in person, which was pretty awesome. They used one of the portraits I did on a charm bracelet full of seashells and dinosaurs so yep, this is it, pretty much my entire life is going to be downhill from here, OH WELL.
