Any idea what happened to Pocari? Seems to have vanished.
On another note, I'm still unable to watch anime thanks to no glasses. -_- To make matters worse, some idiot walked into me in town last week and broke my sunglasses then threatened to smash me when I asked him what the hell. Another week at least before I can see again...getting really sick of this.
And in case if you're wondering 'Surely you could see from a computer screen and chair', well yes but light is rather painful for me at the moment without glasses. It took five days for my eyes to adjust to having that much light come through.
Hey man. I think I caught something a few days ago, which is why I've been silent on all fronts. Friday I think I had only one hour I was coherent and about ten I was delirious and writhing about. I'm still feeling incredibly foggy four days later, headaches just won't go away no matter how much water or sleep I get, pills don't do a thing.
I saw an interesting thing written today by someone who reviewed Heart of Thomas, a Moto Hagio title considered to be the grandmother of shounen-ai. The reviewer mentioned while there were implications of yaoi, the boys were all into girls, then went into 'this is a conceit found in modern yuri - that it is seen as a silly phase one grows out of'. And I think this is a major reason while yuri isn't taken seriously or given much respect. How can people when it's treated as something that is a mere fling and will fade in time and the majority of stories cater/foster that sentiment? Girl Friends really is a rare case of two females forming a lifelong bind that time and growing up strengthens. I wish there was a greater proportion of yuri like it. The freaking loli yuri spam of recent times only cheapens the genre in the long run.
