Spent the last few weeks doing stuff because dew had tooth issues and has been in pain.

@liaizon I am, yes. I've just been trying to make sure people can download their archives. I'd be willing to hand it over to someone else but while a lot of people have expressed interest nobody has coordinated everyone...

Because work is really slow and I can get away with this on my break.

You stand accused of having uttered the phrase, "Mommy milkers" unironically. How do you plead?

"Not cringe, your honor."

[Angry whispers erupt throughout the courtroom]

@larrydavis I agree, I'm actually annoyed that it's not better just because... it totally CAN be better...

@larrydavis I think it's okay, but the manga's better... but I almost always think the manga is better.

I actually thought that Dorohedoro was unlikely, but they did it.

Enough with pol, what manga or light novel do you think should/will never get an anime?

Otherside Picnic, MH 

In other words, ultimately it's about two queer women using altered states of mind to avoid dealing with their past trauma, so of course it's the sort of thing I think is compelling.

Otherside Picnic, MH 

In fact, she tends to dismiss her past trauma as a normal occurrence. She also has dependency issues (both of them, really) and her misanthropy borders on sociopathic sometimes... but that could also be her being an unreliable narrator. The point is that both of them are very fucked up and while their exploration of the Otherside brings them closer together, it's almost more of a coping mechanism than anything because, at least at this point in the novels, Sorawo hasn't really actually properly confronted her experiences.

Otherside Picnic, MH 

One thing I dig about Otherside Picnic is the way it handles the whole "unfathomable horrors causing you to go mad". Namely because seeing a big octopus isn't going to break my brain in any way, even if it might be scary.

However, the Otherside alters your cognition, it twists pattern recognition and other things in a way that feels consistent with actual altered states of mind due to psychadelics, etc. things might take on sinister meanings, for instance, because your brain is firing all its pattern recognition circuits on innocuous things.

Having said that, Sorawo (and Toriko, but the books are from Sorawo's perspective) actually DOES have some serious mental health issues, for instance, dissociative episodes due to past trauma.

COVID 

I should be able to get the vaccine is a little bit but it makes me feel a bit guilty because I feel like some other people I know should get it first... but... it's not like I can just give it to them and they expire so I might as well take it and consider myself lucky.

So I'm a Spider, So What? Minor Spoilers 

As someone who has read the light novels up to the current english translation, the webnovel (most of it), and the manga. I do wish I had other light novel fans to discuss the series I like, but nooo.

So I'm a Spider, So What? Minor Spoilers 

If anyone watches the first few episodes and goes, "Okay this is interesting but it seems like it's going to be as much about Shun's wish fulfillment isekai adventure as it is about spider girl" I assure it's not.

@healyn I said this on Twitter but even if that pelican could fit the baby capybara into its mouth it would be so heavy it'd just be glued to the ground by its mouth.
