Impressions: Ten Count

When the President got into an accident, Shirotani Tadaomi met Kurose. On their very first meeting, Kurose could tell right away that Shirotani is Mysophobic and said that it’s pretty bad while suggesting it would be better to consult a doctor about it. Shirotani was left perturbed by the encounter. Who is Kurose? And how was he able to tell Shirotani’s condition?
From Kitsu

Our MC and uke-kun, Shirotani, has misophobia and surprise surprise, this series treats it with respect and realism. That’s right, no magical dick here to heal diseases, cause it doesn’t work like that! 👏👏👏

In fact, there’s a rawness and darkness, no punches pulled as we see both the damages it has caused to him -his hands are completely fucked up, full of wounds and bleeding/cracks – but also how he sees the world. When the filth/darkness spreads, you can both see and feel how it impacts him.

There’s nothing quite as visual media to show how a character sees the world, themselves, especially when making full use of imagery. Something that doesn’t exist or can’t be seen on the naked eye, can be represented in a strong way like this.

From the moment they meet, as Kurose saves Shirotani’s boss from being flattened by a truck, he sees clearly through Shirotani. Kurose immediately says he has mysophobia, and pushes him to try to get treatment. What would be farfetched isn’t by the discovery that Kurose is a psychiatrist, and so he really just wants to help him lead a better life.

But is that true? Is that really it?

Impressions: A Guy Like You

wp-1484771222359.png

Go Siwon’s dreams are constantly visited by the clever, beautiful Kang Jinha. In the dream, Jinha keeps on mentioning this “incident” that happened between them but Siwon can’t remember anything! And how can it feel so real? Luckily for Siwon, hints about the “incident” start to appear and Siwon is able to regain his memory bit by bit. How will their relationship change at the end of it all?

From MU

The lovely Happy did a post about this, and so I decided to read it, you can read her post here.

The first thing that stood out for me was the art, gorgeous scenes with the two main characters. Also Jinha is too gorgeous for this world, also I’d like him to step on me when he gets angry because /coughs

Considering this is a webtoon, the quality is just amazing. The coloring is one of the things that super stands out. This has more quality than some games. Heck, I’d love to see Waje work on a game, the art is beautiful, the coloring slays me in, and the guys can get it any time of the day. Plus Waje does terrifying expressions as well as beautiful, bless 🙏🙏👌

Jinha flashes hot and cold, which I usually don’t like, but there are always this sense that he does it because he has reasons behind it. Not just to make some drama, et all.

Before I go and detail some spoilers, for you all that don’t want them, I just want to assure that this is NOT like Killing Stalking. I know friends say Jinha reminds them of a softer Sanwon, but considering is a psychopath that likes killing and inflicting pain, I think it’s NOT TRUE.

Jinha has been in love with Siwon way before, and this push and pull of theirs starts from Siwon not remembering what happened between them. While Jinha does have a temper, and legit terrifying expressions, he’d never hurt Siwon physically. In fact, Siwon hurts Jinha far more than Jinha ever does, so /shrugs

Now for SPOILAAAS ALERT

*:・゚✧Anime Spotlight: Yuuri!!! on Ice has Made Me on Fire

Did you like that pun/title? Hehehe, it was fun to write it! 😼✨

But that’s right, YoI has finally ended and I screamed, like legit shrieks and screams, my voice cracked on that last episode. Before I delve into spoilers, I wanna talk about why I love this anime and why it’s been the highlight of this year, for me.

One of the most important ones is definitely the GAY. Not because of the fan service, or queerbaiting, or whatever other terms people like using to put down shows.

This is the first anime sports, serious sports mind you, that there’s real gay in it, that is approached beautifully and so realistically. This is breaking norms, rules, and I love it.

*:・゚✧Anime Spotlight: Hybrid Child Milked All My Feels

image

Most know Shungiku Nakamura as the mangaka of Junjou Romantica, which in my opinion is her weakest work. Her Sekaiichi Hatsukoi was head and shoulders above JR, and one of my favorites. I’m quite fond of lost lovers finding themselves again. But the one story that grabbed me by the throat and made me cry rivers, was Hybrid Child.
