—Ok, here we go again. At least we don’t get Kunio this time.

—Yuri is the best. I never get why she’s hanging around someone as lousy as Lady Sachi.

Lady Sachi on Keima’s turnaround, and the only time I’ve ever agreed with her.

—Man, what is the deal with putting your bffs that are all comatose drunk into cabs by themselves and hoping for the best? Particularly after one of you almost got abducted and raped that way?

—The landlord roping them into running the booth for free rent sounds implausible until I remember the time in school the ceiling of our rental house caved in, and the landlord got us to clean it all up for a month’s rent.

—MC is stone cold, making dates right in front of two guys who like her.

—Wow, harsh that MC picked up the special Nanyami doll even though she didn’t give a crap about it compared to everyone else.

—Oh nice of MC to totally lie to Itaru about Toya being a nutcase so she doesn’t have to be indebted to him for saving her…LIKE HE DID.

Itaru speaks for me.

—Basically MC can forgive and forget anything you’ve done to her unless your name rhymes with “bitaru.”

—GDI, I cant believe I screwed up the data hunt AGAIN.

—Ok, at this point, I might just go ahead and bag getting the early clear bonuses and just try to redo it the next time there’s a data hunt for me to botch.

Itaru’s expression at having the fortune teller glom onto him kills me.

—Well Joe is a nutcase, but at least the Nanyami doll went to someone who really appreciates it.

Or maybe he’d just think you have shockingly bad judgement LIKE THE REST OF US.

—Awesome that she’s now going around pulling cold hot dogs out of people’s hands so she can get the special love fortune.

—Oh Well, Kota was kind of grumpy anyway. I bet he’ll get a route someday.

—Ok, on to the specific routes. As usual, we’ll start with our least favorite and work up.

Oh honey, you are about eight short.

—Holy mackerel, she stole Sotaro’s breakfast! MC is like your nightmare roommate.

—Now she’s giving Sotaro’s breakfast to Keima and I just can’t anymore.

BUT HE…AND YOU…HUMAN TRAFFICKING…oh, forget it.

Oh good. Off to Germany with Keima and Lady Sachi. What could possibly go wrong.

—Ok, the fact that MC is letting this dude who probably stole her wallet front her money for gambling his so bad.

—The fact that he now wants her to sex off her debts to him is a surprise to only MC.

If there was any justice, MC’s first female slap would be now.

—Wow, I took so long with this, they actually started up another data hunt already.

—Ugh, can’t decide whether I like Joe or Toya least.

—Joe in whatever backwater village MC is from feels like it should turn out like Eva Gabor’s character in “Green Acres.”

—Well he acquitted himself like a normal person, but now he just seems like a totally different guy, since Joe’s always been marked by weirdly extravagant speech and actions.

—On to Toya. Maybe it’s just me, but if you JUST got frightened by a guy thinking that he was so mad he might let loose and beat you, maybe you don’t go along with it when he says he won’t let you go home and now you have to live with him.

—I always wonder if this is an actual Japanese thing or just a mechanism of fiction that people can decide to go stay at someone’s house or a hotel that same night with no preparation or anything.

—Like, I can’t stay somewhere overnight without about two hours of packing and a 30” duffel bag.

—Again, It seems like she went with him almost 30% because she really likes cake.

—I like that her big confession to him is “I love you…r cakes.”

—Wow, just read that getting the early clear data for both halves requires like 48 extra tickets, which I don’t have.

—Guess we’re letting this data hunt slide by as well.

—Back with Haruichi and his perpetual Yakuza girlfriend-threatening rivals.

—I feel like MC is, in the hysteria of the moment, overlooking the part where Haruichi said he had his henchmen investigate and report back on her living situation.

—Now he wants her to not go to work and just stay and sleep in his room for some indeterminate amount of time while he hunts down some threatening guys she hasn’t seen for herself yet, and now it’s sounding like HE’s kidnapped her.

—Asako has just told MC that she’s been living with the Mamiyas for forty years now, and I’m expecting her to say she was just staying until they hunted down their rivals too.

—Ok, I get that Haruichi is used to faction fighting within his own clan, but he seems pretty blasé about the fact that his MOM practically put a hit out on him.

—Ok Itaru. Try not to make me sad about MC’s treatment of you this time.

—Wow, she got all mad at him and I don’t even know why. Because the server dropped a glass? And he was nice about it?

—Maybe MC has been around so many of these nutbars, she forgot what a reasonable response was.

—Oh good. Now she got him maimed because she ran out into traffic upset for reasons unknown to either Itaru or me.

—Oh my God, he got amnesia, which is really the only way any of this can end happily for Itaru.

—If Yuri got divorced and then married Itaru, I would feel like they had a chance for a good life.

—Now I have no idea why she’s moping around so much. When she was all he thought about, she found him repulsive, and now that he doesn’t remember her, she’s bummed.

—Maybe make up your mind next time, MC.

—Notice that at no time does she tell him or anyone else that he got hit by the car because SHE darted in front of it like a dummy.

—No thank you or anything, plus she acts all sullen at him like it’s his fault he got brain damage saving her. He really is better off this way.

—Now she is so concerned about him, she’s letting Sotaro buy her cake, like she’s the one who got hit by a car.

DING DING DING DING
We have a wiiiiinner…

—Oh so now after she lied to him about him ever caring about her, he has decided to accept his memory loss and live a fruitful life. Clearly, she can’t tolerate that and is going to run after him like a banshee to ruin his life some more.

—Oh my God, she gave him ANOTHER concussion.

—Dude is going to die before she figures out what she wants.

—So it ends with her having beaten Itaru’s obsessive love for her (and probably a subdural hematoma) back into him again, so she can be happy wielding complete power over him while continuing to deny him the slightest signs of affection.

—In the life of MC, we call this “Tuesday.”

Hakuoki Festival Edo Blossoms 2018

Attended the Hakuoki Festival last week—it was pretty fun, although a little weird to go to a festival about a game I haven’t played yet. (I was waiting until the second half came out!) It was taking place pretty close to where I live and had free parking tho, so I figured I’d give it a shot.

It was pretty fun! They had some games that ran the gamut from easy (Plinko) to hard (rubber band shooting) to impossible-for-me (game trivia.)

Besides that, there was a cosplay contest and photo ops with character stand ups that were auctioned off at the end.

Along with that, they provided respectable refreshments like crackers and cheese and hummus and cookies which was nice since their location wasn’t around any eating places. Merch was also available for purchase—I didn’t get any of the single character charms/pins/badges since I didn’t know their in-game specifics and didn’t want to be the person getting all the Hans merchandise during intermission for “Frozen.”

Voting for Best Boy was held (Saito won) and a Wall for people to draw cartoons or write messages was provided. People are both talented and relatable.

The thing I thought was the most entertaining was probably trying to collect all the different coasters you could win from the various games. It was tricky since, having not played the game yet, I couldn’t do the trivia and I proved to totes suck at rubber band guns, but people were super nice and traded/gave me some and I finally succeeded.

In all it was a fun day and certainly helped increase my anticipation for playing Hakuoki!

Teen Wolf, S6E16: “triggers”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Wow, just when you thought it couldn’t get worse to go to Beacon Hills High.
  • Ugggh.  Spiders again.
  • Nolan, beginning to wonder if he backed the wrong horse.
  • One thing about Beacon Hills students, everyone but Scott and Stiles drives pretty decent cars.
  • Nolan, not so good at the tailing.
  • Nolan apparently stopped off at the hairdressers on the way over?
  • Theo loves punching Liam.
  • Lydia is never ok.
  • (Ron Howard voice over) “Scott did not have a plan.”
  • If Counselor Girl doesn’t know by now that Gerard doesn’t care who gets killed besides him, she has not been paying attention.
  • This plan is not going to go well at all.
  • Scott, you goober.
  • Liam seems to be having some problems.
  • This Scott-Malia scene is getting a little cringeworthy.
  • (Ron Howard voice over) “Malia did not got this.”
  • Hm.  Wondering if maybe this might not be the end of Argent.
  • Theo is making a hobby of saving Liam.
  • I’m not totally sure why the Anuk-Ite only affects Liam.
  • Lol that Counselor girl thinks that Gerard wouldn’t break her neck as look at her.
  • Honey, after Gerard kills all the supernatural people, you know he’s going after the minorities.
  • It’s not like a hunter stops hunting.
  • I don’t know if I totally buy Scott and Malia.  It just seems too fast.
  • I think this commercial break would have been more suspenseful if all the trailers hadn’t shown Melissa in the hospital.
  • GIDEON EMERY.

Teen Wolf, S6E15: “pressure test”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Oh man, Theo’s memory is better than mine.  I didn’t even remember this dude from Eichen House.
  • Everybody comes home to Scott McCall.
  • Oh, our favorite veterinarian!
  • Why in God’s Name would you want to stay even 3 seconds in the presence of Mr. Fear?
  • Malia, queen of the inappropriate laughter.
  • “If there’s a problem…”  Oh look Sheriff–I think there’s a problem.
  • There is a lot of information for Scott to process right now.
  • Lol that at this point in the series, no one wants to get into makeup more than their fingernails.
  • Poor Theo still getting beat up for being the Witch vs. the World.
  • “You think any of them are more innocent than us?”  Well, if they didn’t actually kill people, then YES.
  • There’s kind of getting to be a lot of deputy attrition here.
  • Apparently America is infested with Anuk-ite.
  • Oh wow.  Look who’s coming to dinner.
  • I’m not sure how this deal worked.  Like, why would that whole mob just let everyone walk away?  Dad McCall didn’t look like he came with enough firepower to intimidate them.
  • These two are not going to make it.
  • Like no one noticed that everyone only drove as far as the animal clinic?

Teen Wolf, S6E14: “face to faceless”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Oh nooooooo
  • Nothing worse than a flayed body except a spider-absorbing flayed body.
  • Oh good, it’s the deputy that wanted to shoot Scott.  This will go well.
  • Whatever happened to Liam’s parents?  Why does Scott gotta come to his house to get him out of bed and into school?
  • Well it is true that they’d probably be alive if you had listened to Scott, Liam.
  • It is, of course, true to life that no one hates anyone so much as someone who’s done them a huge service.
  • Yes Argent, it is your fault.  You needed to lock that dude down.
  • Oh My God, the pack has become basically everything non-functional about today’s society.
  • “These people want to kill us.  I think everything would be solved if we just peacefully met with them and tried to figure out what they want.”
  • You KNOW what they want.  THEY WANT YOU DEAD.
  • If you peacefully meet with them, that will help them achieve that goal real fast.
  • Argent, you know your dad would kill you in a heartbeat.  And not even your heartbeat.
  • Coach has maybe taken his medication today.
  • Wow, between Nolan and the Counselor, Liam is just full of bad options today.
  • The Counselor won’t condone bullying.  Murder is okey dokey, tho.
  • Scott, if finding out the ID of one new hunter suddenly solves everything, I’m not seeing it.
  • This seems like a bad idea, Scott.
  • Oh hey, Scott.  Turns out it was a bad idea.
  • Maybe Scott should remind her that he was one of her kind of people?
  • I don’t know.  I think if Counselor was with it enough to know that Scott and the Deputy were there at the Beast attack, she was with it enough to see that they were trying to save people from it.
  • Liam maybe needs to learn how to dodge.
  • Gerard is all “you’re going to die if you don’t fight.”  Then when Malia starts fighting “she’s going to get you killed.”
  • This might be when people should start suspecting that Gerard isn’t all that trustworthy.
  • Beacon Hills High has the worst teacher supervision ever.  Half the student body takes over a classroom to beat a dude to death and no one notices.
  • Wow, that Chemistry teacher is actually the worst ever.
  • Coach turns out to be the actual hero of Beacon Hills.
  • Deputy Deus Ex Machina in the nick of time again.
  • …And we’ve suddenly turned into every X-Men plot ever.

Teen Wolf, S6E13: “after images”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Ugh, Brett, no.
  • Totemo itai, Brett.
  • Counselor is finding out what everyone in Beacon Hills knows, Gerard is a pain in the ass.
  • Maybe it’s not a good idea to take on two people who are armed when you’re already wounded and you have a total of one arrow.
  • Mason sees dead people.  Or, I guess, just one particular dead person.
  • Cory is not so sure he signed up for this mission.
  • I feel like maybe Brett should just get out of the forest and flag down a car to town instead of trying to play Hunger Games?
  • Meanwhile, Argent is looking at Melissa all “do I call you to the forest to kill stuff?”
  • If the way to be sure is to get eaten by spiders, I think I’m ok with uncertainty.
  • Liam, you goober.
  • Argent, how is shooting a dead guy going to do anything?
  • Ok, Lori and Liam might not be total assets on this one.
  • I feel like we would care more about Lori’s bro-angst if we actually knew Lori at all.
  • Did we know Cory has healing powers?
  • Looking like we might be saying goodby to Lori or Brett or both soon.
  • I feel like Melissa and Argent are no longer talking about calling about the no DNA body.
  • Man, wouldn’t it suck if people became so disaffected and fearful that they started turning on anyone different
  • Weird that Lori seems like sometimes a werewolf and sometimes not.
  • Liam, the car that hit them is right there still.  Maybe you check that out?
  • Liam is maybe not ready to be an alpha.
  • Ok, this was not my favorite episode.  Too much emphasis on characters we barely know, too many poor decisions made by people who should know better, and tests taking too long for nothing to show for it.

Teen Wolf, S6E12: “raw talent”

Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Ok, a trip to Walt Disney World has us a couple weeks behind, but surely we can catch up.
  • [Notices it’s a two-hour show tonight.]  Sigh.
  • Theo is homeless, and still has a nicer car than Scott or Stiles.
  • Theo, letting any spider crawl all over you is a bad idea, even if it wasn’t an evil Hell-spider.
  • Itai, Theo.  And on the other hand, wow, that was some good aim.
  • Not a good day for Theo.
  • I guess it’s not so surprising that Scott has PTSD by now, as that it’s just manifesting now.
  • Vargas is totes ready to shoot Scott.
  • Mason is starting up the “Brett 8-pack Fan Club.”
  • “Yay sports!”  Mason is all of us.
  • No Liam.  Full confession to the supernatural murderer is a bad move.
  • Lydia should probably stop going back to Eichen House.
  • Poor Parrish.  Lost out to the waves of Stydia shippers.
  • Parrish, maybe you shouldn’t show your Hellhound eyes to every obviously shady character in Beacon Hills.
  • Why in God’s Name would Corey even want to play lacrosse.  His one talent is turning invisible at the first signs of peril.
  • Nothing good has ever happened in a Beacon Hills shower room.
  • You’d think Argent would at least have been in contact with Scott’s Mom, since they looked like they were starting a thing back in the haunted train station.
  • Look Dr. Fenris, it’s not Parrish’s fault that you haven’t been able to get a better job than paranormal control at Eichen House.
  • I’ll miss a lot about Teen Wolf, but not these creepy Old Spice Mom commercials.
  • This counselor is pretty unsympathetic.
  • No one ever turns the lights on in Beacon Hills High.  I wouldn’t step foot in that place without a Kleig light on me at all times.
  • Lydia, maybe your first response to someone getting murdered in Eichen House shouldn’t be going over there without having contacted anyone or told anyone where you’re going.
  • Dr. Fenris, the thing where we don’t kill people isn’t really a “faith” issue.  It’s more of an “evil” issue.
  • Of course, if Lydia packed a gun, she wouldn’t need to blow out her vocal cords all the time.
  • I don’t know if I get behind Malia-Scott (Scalia?)  He seems so earnest for her.
  • Argent loves spooking these kids.
  • Why on Earth would they think Aaron is ok, when he’s just sitting in an empty classroom by himself at night with the lights off?
  • Man, who would have thought that curing and resuscitating the worst human alive would come back to bite you on the butt?
