    I'm quite liking the vibe for now. You get a peak at the Japanese culture but also I appreciate how real the people are. Like when I see the mom reaction to the mangaka choice it's easy for me relate and they don't overplay and make it a big dramatic gesture like it would be in most manga or even movie. It's just her trying to get her son on the right path and moving on.

    I continue to enjoy the ride.

    Slightly sexist tho. Not sure if it's just to reflect the culture or the author's own bias.

    They went both realistic(he mostly just wanted a cool job more than passion) and dark(how he ended) with the uncle backstory. I did not expect that with this kind of manga.

    Sweet move from the writer to push the artist into his lap by pointing out the girl wants to be a voice actress. Also I just now suddenly realise that the Death team is also a fun so off course he thinks about those of them that have to split the job.

    Ok 1- I didn't know it was a comedy manga. I was expecting more somber or serious exploration But 2- that proposal and her reaction was hilarious.

    I was trying to determine if Bakuman is the same duo or just the same writer as Death Note. Did you know his actual identity is a secret ala L? That's kind of a fun trivia. People speculate who he is but officialy his identy and gender are not not confirmed. It's kind of fun.

    Also Death Note actually existing in this Bakuman is so meta I didn't expect that. But I get it as both fun easter egg and to tell people he is not telling exactly his story. Really fun stuff all around. Back to my reading.

    Will write on medical police when I have more time. Not forgetting that one.

    You still follow one piece? I havent seen you on those for some time. Lately I try to wait for the official release online without reading the scans since they are so close anyway. I do read the spoilers and follow the discussions there tho so it's not like im fully blind.

    Also Im trying to get back to reading mangas at least. I can't deal with too much BS ala why ia the character being stupid or why is the author going with that message instead of this one or how does this power work. So I settle for Bakuman which seems like a nice let's explore the career of those people who makes the stuff you read.

    20 pages in and outside of the unnecessary romance setup I feel could truly enjoy the ride. I'm already intrigued about how mangakas are seen in japon and how does one get to become one when you're just good and are a real human being. I think I read Toriyama's story to become a mangaka once and never Oda's.

    I feel like when I started One Piece after only reading Dragon Ball and Nekomajin got me interested in trying what else was in the art form. Wish me good luck.

    Also How's school and writing going?

    On the comics what are your recent reads?

    I know you're a big Spiderman fan(you got me to discover my first or second favorite marvel story with superior first possibly being secret wars). You read Life story? Also chip zdarsky daredevil?

    Also try House of X. trust me I dont read X-men and I love that story. I might even like it much better as a stand alone.

    That sucks that you never watched Star Trek. It's not good enough for a binge(most everyone agree the first seasons suck) but there are so many gems in it. I wanted to ask you some of your favorites. If I were to give to give you random episode of random sci-fi shows would you watch them or does watching it without knowing the shows bother you too much?

    I will say I think the end should have been decisive in showing the dad isn't there because I think the show works really well to reflect the danger of mental illness and the difficulty of approaching someone with it or realising you might need help. And I wanted the show to take that leap and squarely set himself as invitation to be more active and not just settle for the ambiguous maybe she is right and every is being too overprotective. It's one of the times where I think the message is stronger by making a stand. If it's super power it's just an fun show but if it's mental illness it's a powerful and I wanted them to go for powerful.

    I think I mentioned I did not like the first episode of unreal. I thought we were going for assholes are fine if they are special which I don't like. But as it unfolds as this exploration of this woman issues that stems from her lost, touch on the idea of what would you do to erase the past and hero worship(unable to see her father flaws), to then crescendo into a discussion about how mental illness can be subtle and someone you have to have to be willing to risk being the asshole if it helps because ignoring doesn't make it better(the mom) I came to truly like it. I should probably give it a rewatch.

    Honestly The second half is so much better than the first I'm just annoyed by how I had to suffer to get there when clearly they can do better.

    Ever finished Witcher?
