Quick Slime Thoughts: When the adaptation misses your anticipated beat

I love That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime. I liked what I read of the LN a billion years ago and I also really like the manga. I really liked season 1 and was extremely excited for season 2. For the most part season 2 has been a good amount of fun, but I feel it missed the beat where for me it mattered the most. 😦

Spoilers for S2 ahead.

My tweet that made me think of writing this post.

Don’t smirk you dumbass!

Ben-to is a real blast of an anime

Back when it aired in 2011 (……10 years ago), I watched Ben-to as it aired. I loved what I saw, but just like with almost all anime I watch as they air, I fell behind and never finished it.

Recently with a group of friends, we watched the whole thing and damn if it isn’t just so much fun.

Manga and how it kept saving me

CW: This is a personal, somewhat depressing blog post. No notions of self-harm or anything, but some low points in my life.

Let’s go back in time to 2015. I was getting ready to wrap up school. I had a job offer from my final internship and if I accepted it, I’d get a nice big paycheck working for <EVIL TECH COMPANY> in the US. My primary hesitation at the time was that something just didn’t feel right.

I didn’t want to grow up. I had an inkling that once I settled into a job, that’s all I would do. All of my personal ambitions, goals etc would just be tossed away as I came home too tired from work to do anything. There was a feeling in me that if I just followed the easy path, nothing interesting would come out of my life.

So, I made the bold, but very reckless decision to turn down that job offer and make a last second u-turn towards Grad School. My good friend at the time even questioned me, “are you sure? Usually folk who go to grad school plan for it years ahead not as they are about to graduate?”. He was right, of course.

Rapid thoughts on some 2020 anime

I figured that instead of the usual ‘random manga I read’ monthly post, I should just talk about the anime I watched this year. Unfortunately, I barely watched anything this year. Tsk tsk! Just as bad I barely finished anything I started. Tsk tsk!

Quick thoughts on the top 10 MangaUpdates “Reincarnated in Another World” Series

Hello,

I figured as a quick, silly post I’d write a sentence or two on the top 10 isekai manga on MangaUpdates, but unfortunately there is no isekai category, so I picked the Reincarnated In Another World, which is like an isekai subset if you will.

Note: I haven’t read a bunch of these, but hey!

One Point Yankee is a super lovely manga

Ever since I read Angel Densetsu so many years ago, I have loved manga about protagonists who look scary but are super sweet. One Point Yankee (Toorigakari ni One Point Advice shite iku Type no Yankee) is one such manga.

Where Angel Densetsu stars a scary looking, very good, but otherwise normal boy, One Point Yankee is a bit more closer to something like Machida-kun where our protagonist (called Sakurai-san) edges closer to Saint territory. He is so good.

Actually given that Sakurai-san is so good at everything and is full of mystery, it might be far more accurate to say Sakurai-san is Machida combined with the perfection of Sakamoto.
