THE “AWARDS” WHERE I JUST MAKE FUN OF STUFF:
“Best” DUDE YOU HAVE TO CHECK OUT THIS AMAZING ‘JAPANIMATION’! IT’S NOT KID’S STUFF LIKE DISNEY CARTOONS!: Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine
Hey guys, do you like sex and killing and killing with sex? Then I’ve got the show for you!
(Stuff in pink is by Hinano).
Stripped of its context, this statement is going to make me sound like I am either some kind of know-it-all trying to sound smarter than you by dismissing something that you like, or like a crazy TV Tropes contributor who can’t help but compare everything they come across to that one show/book/movie/video game that they like way too much: Summer Wars is basically the exact same movie as Digimon: Bokura no War Game. See what I did there? I even called it “Bokura no War Game” rather than “the second Digimon movie” or “Children’s War Game”.
The genre as a concept arises from the accrual of texts and conventions. This includes texts and conventions both within a specific genre and texts and conventions in otherwise unrelated genres.

Man Tomoya is such a jerk and it’s so much more prevalent when you see it in anime form. “I managed to poop on my own!” “That’s great Ushio now go away.” Although in all honesty, she’s 5 years old, if by 5 years old you can’t go pooping on your own there’s something wrong. Ugh I know this is supposed to be a happy episode and stuff but watching it makes me further depressed. If next week is the arc about Tomoya’s dad I’m gonna be bawwwing again. T_T In other news, I love how 5 years later Tomoya still looks like he’s 17, and Sanae still looks like a milf, despite now being a gilf.
