It gets easier. Also, don’t worry about the dragon rot. It’s not permanent, it can’t kill anyone, though it will stop you from progressing some side quests and some npcs won’t sell their wares while they’re infected. You will eventually have access to plenty of the items that fix dragon rot. Most of my world was Read more

Only saw a handful of these. Fruba I did enjoy, but I honestly preferred how the original anime handled the whole Kyo’s transformation “arc.” Promised Neverland was great. Demon Slayer I’m watching on Toonami. It’s good and I’m enjoying it, but I’m a little surprised it’s caught on as The Greatest Anime Ever from what Read more

I feel like one thing that makes Mob Psycho 100 very unique in many ways is how while the spectacular psychic battles make it seem right at home in the Shonen genre alongside classics like dragonball or Yu Yu Hakusho, it’s interesting the extent to which it consciously subverts the genre by divorcing combat strength Read more

Thank you for listening and writing this comment, Aether. My thoughts on this situation have been mulled over for months, so when it came time to deliver that monologue I didn’t even need to read from anything. I already knew exactly what to say. I think Luigi made the best point about this whole thing in that it’s Read more

I’m going to make a claim that in 2018 might have been radical but is now probably widely accepted: Black Clover (and I suppose Boruto) will be the last eternal shonen. I can’t see anyone else even Dragon Ball Super when it returns trying to take up that model again. The six months on six months off just seems too Read more

I really enjoyed your personal take on the year, particularly the restraint you showed in focusing only on a select few shounen shows. Recent shounen have been refocusing themselves away from their tropes, and I think that’s a necessary change for the genre to survive. Read more

I’m leaning toward Travis Touchdown with NMH 3 on the way.
