I was thinking about my blog one casual midnight morning since I’m trying to change up the set-up a little bit to appear more diverse and I was suddenly reminded: Oh. My. Gosh. It’s Monday and I completely forgot about Journey To Spring! Classic Inskidee was in denial so I double-checked the date of the last one (I post these every 2 weeks) and it turns out I not only missed Saturday, I missed an entire week! None of you probably noticed yet here I am bringing attention to my horrible memory and time management…Well, now you know! Inskidee sucks at scheldules! (Who am I kidding? I know you knew! Don’t pretend you didn’t.)

Carole & Tuesday Ascendance of a Bookworm [DROP] Bloom Into You Citrus Asagao To Kase-San
First of all, we need to get this out of the way…
GUYS I FINALLY COMPLETED IT! And it’s been six stupid months! Finally! I may not be able to accomplish my original goal for JtS but gosh, am I satisfied that I finally finished Penguindrum! As expected, I loved Penguindrum and I also loved Ikuhara’s ability at utilizing his symbolism. You should see my notes, they’re almost as wack as Ikuhara’s directing. I had a great time looking into Penguindrum and now I can finally understand why people say its such a masterpiece. I can see how its on that level. I hope you’ll enjoy my review! I know I definitely will. I’m gonna be copy and pasting my notes over onto it so expect major confusion and chaos.
I (Also) Finally Completed the “Yuri Big Three”!
I know I’m definitely over-celebrating but this is my best few weeks for anime this blogging year! I mean, just-just look at this progress! I know all of you who finished long series like One Piece in a matter of a few months are scoffing at my inadequte performance but guys…Six. Months. That’s record time! This needs to be written in stone.
Thankfully, I continued that streak of zooming through series. I decided to finally read these following Yuri manga literally because of one comment. I’ve been meaning to read them but I never had simply because I’m lazy. Al over at alsmangablog (check her out!) commented about the Yuri manga, Bloom Into You, on one of my posts describing how I’ve been meaning to read it. For some perculiar reason, that was encouraging enough for me to read the manga in a matter of a day and a few more! Thanks you Al, for that comment I took way too seriously haha! Much appreciated!
*Bloom Into You (50/50)
This one was also really good and I mean really good. It was a delight reading this and coming to the realization I’m a grown child baby woman squealing to two highschoolers kissing. Screw it, I’m not ashamed, I loved reading it okay! From Yuu and Touko’s growing and morphing relationship to Touko’s hard-hitting and too relatable identity conflict, I loved it to pieces. Esepecially Touko’s character. Like Penguindrum, I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed reading this wholesome manga (and also watching the anime immediately afterwards because I can’t get enough of this cute couple and that one asexual.
I was on a Yuri high after Bloom Into You so I went on ahead to re-read an ol’ fav of mine, Citrus. Sadly, I didn’t love it as much as I remembered but that doesn’t mean it was horrible. For some reason, I always end up loving Yuri couples to bits and pieces more than I should. Asagao to Kase-San was literally one episode and I couldn’t stand having to break away from it. Citrus was a compelling read with, I hate to say, a rather disappointing end. Nonetheless, you bet I’m reading that side, Citrus+
*Asagao to Kase-San (1/1)
I know we as the audience were thrown right into the fray for Asagao’s first and only episode but like Natsunagu!’s first episode, I really enjoy shorts that start out of the blue nowhere. I like not knowing a speck about these characters or their relationship. It’s fun watching them go through daily life and be a cute couple. The fact that we’re lacking deeper attachment isn’t a problem to me. In its place, I savor watching these two randos live their lives as we peacefully look in through a window. Don’t worry all, there’s no way I’m stopping here. There’s a manga with my name out there waiting!

No small description this time around! Lucky for you, I have a review on this already! Its quite negative though. Just a lil’ heads up.
Ascendance of a Bookworm (3/14)
I heard so much good about this one. Alot of the good stated as long as you can put the annoying main character behind you, absorbing yourself in the rest of the series wouldn’t be hard. Thus, I gave it a few more tries. I’m so sorry but I can’t with Myne. She’s like the personification of nails scraping across a blackboard. Can you imagine that sound? Everytime she spoke with her shrill voice or wailed about hehr book addiction, I took a bullet to the head. I’m sure this series is probably as a good as people say but as someone with the lowest tolerance ever, I couldn’t even last a mere three episodes let alone one episode. Sorry.
WorldEnd: BONUS UPDATE – I’m Also Falling Into a Pit of Collecting Books (Again)!
I haven’t read in a while unless you count some Edgar Allen Poe here and there. I decided to finally get back into reading novels and to start, why not light novels? And why not pick up one I’ve heard so much about, WorldEnd? I normally read digitally so as I was reading WorldEnd, although it was captivating, I found myself getting a massive headache. I can read manga fine online, I can read articles fine, but when it came to books? No, sir. I couldn’t do it. Thus, I went out to buy a physical copy of WorldEnd and more Edgar Allen Poe because he’s Poe – we love him.
Thus, I made a horrible mistake. I’ve fallen into the hole of collecting books once more. I have a bookshelf full of books I barely pick up and all of a sudden, I can already imagine it filling up the minute the inner collector in me isn’t satisfied with just one measly book. My point? Get ready for alot of complaining about my wasting money on books I’ll prolly never re-read…
For once I had a strong week with my lively friendo, anime. Now I just need to knock out the one’s I’m actually supposed to finish by Spring. Thank you for reading and once again, my apologies for my scheldule being so wonky this past week.
