This week I’m working afternoons. I’d rather always work in the afternoon; that allows me to spend at least a couple precious hours every morning writing, which is my main preoccupation these days. I’ve already polished about a thousand words of the chapter that will conclude the current sequence.
I was supposed to go to the dentist, but she got covid. My brother and his wife got the virus as well.
These last couple of weeks, my non-writing, non-working hours have been filled with Japanese matters: Ichiko Aoba’s music, manga, and Chainsaw Man. Mappa is doing interesting stuff with the adaptation. The pacing feels a bit weird given how quickly the manga moves, but I’m enjoying revisiting the deranged exploits of our boob-obsessed, mommy-worshipping neglected boy Denji.
The following video is the ending of a single episode of the anime (the third one). I can’t imagine how much money and manpower they spent on this.
As a manga reader who’s currently following the second part of this story, it’s been real nice to see Power again.
Besides all that, I’m doing as fine as someone so mentally unstable could.
