It’s time for winter - choose your strategy wisely!
Find this comic on my site here.
Followed closely by massive eating binge and hibernation in cave.
That last one tends to be my major problem during winter months. I find myself a nice cozy position huddled up under a blanket, and the idea of moving to the cold outside world becomes fundamentally vile. Especially in the morning.
Have you ever been puttering along in your day-to-day routine, then had a sudden realization that there’s a vast hole in your life that you need to fill right now?
For me, that was Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei's opening themes. I'm listening to them now, and the world is a little better for it.

Check out Mai Hime, it’s a pretty decent show with a kind of spin off sequel called Mai Otome that you may or may not want to watch after.
tumbr wont let me reply to text posts cuz its DUMB. But yeah I always recommend Tokyo Mew Mew(the japanese the English was 4kids disaster). I just really like the range of characters a whole lot. Iv also heard a lot of good things about Pretty Cure but havent seen it. (might wanna hit casey up about that haha)

Putting my recommendations under a cut because,…
Magical Lyrical Girl Nanoha, and its various sequels! About a very competent magical girl who basically decides to take her job seriously and play it smart. Fun, friendship, and badass talking scythes!
For magical girls, watch Pretty Cure. if you really want to watch an actual magical girl thing, it’s best starting with a not-deconstruction. According to my sources (someone who watches a lot of mahou anime) the best season of it is Fresh.
I managed to avoid crappy dubs with Sailor Moon, but beware terrible A/V quality. So! I recommend Futari Wa Pretty Cure, from 2004. A personal favorite.
Princess Tutu and Revolutionary Girl Utena, which did deconstructions of the genre without sacrificing feminist commentary.
Well, this has been one of the most successful ‘recommend me a thing’ sessions I’ve ever had. Thanks for the responses, everyone!
I’d forgotten Utena; I adore that series. Princess Tutu has been on my ‘to watch’ list for quite a while, but it’s worth refreshing its position. Nice to see Sailor Moon reaffirmed; I’ll see if I can track down some subbed versions without too many headaches. Pretty Cure is one of those things where the thought of digging into that many different tangentially-related series makes my head spin, but the consistency of the replies makes me think it’s worth watching regardless.
Pretear, Petite Princess Yucie, and Penguindrum hold some promise, so I’ll see if I can get to them after I’ve gone through the Big Names mentioned above. Fantasista Doll seems like it might scratch that old Cardcaptors itch, too, though dolls normally creep me out. (I wonder if Cardcaptors holds up? I only ever saw the dub, which was probably awful but seemed fine to my child-like self. The manga is offputting, mostly due to the tropes that come from CLAMP.)
Mai-Hime sounds like it could be neat, but honestly, gritty reboots/deconstructions are getting incredibly tiring for me, especially since I haven’t seen much of the non-deconstructed franchizes—I agree with Phrenotube on this mark. Tokyo Mew Mew doesn’t fill me with promise, but I may get around to it someday. Magic Knight Rayearth's CLAMP label puts me off of it immediately, but that's probably unfair.
Thanks again for the advice, everyone!

My thoughts recently have been drifting toward the Magical Girl genre, particularly its potential as a vehicle for positive entertainment directed at young women to deliver massive amounts of sheer feminism. This is awesome.
It occurs to me, though, that I haven’t actually seen very much of the genre. I enjoyed a bit of the Card Captors anime dub when I was a kid, and I’ve seen Madoka Magika, which I disliked. Shugo Chsra was a brief guilty pleasure, but it’s ultimately tok kiddy to really hold my interest (also fanservice of an 11 year old is really gross).
So, does anyone have any recommendations for a magical girl series that remains interesting for an adult audience? Sailor Moon is an obvious answer, but that seems like a franchise that’s difficult to get into without colliding with crappy dubs and the like.
Bernard: I went to the chemist to get some Fizzy-Good.
Fran: Some what?
Bernard: You know, some Fizzy-Good, Fizzy-Good-Make-Feel-Nice.
Fran: Oh, Alka-Seltzer.
I never noticed how much Black Books stuff there was out there until I was introduced to the show.
How public transportation can reduce congestion
i really wanted to write something eloquent here but i’ll settle for “fuck cars”
BUT THEN HOW DO I SELL ALL MY AMERICAN CARS ASSEMBLED OUTSIDE OF AMERICAAAAA
Fuck cars seriously
In general, I agree with the ‘fuck cars’ sentiment, but one small point comes to mind: How many people would those cars be transporting if they were all full of passengers?
…The answer to my point, of course, is to just have two train cars, maybe three, and it’d still be far less congested than with all those accursed cars.
So all great warriors go to Valhalla when they die, right?
Stacker was a great warrior.
Stacker sacrificed himself to save the world.
Stacker went to Valhalla.
Stacker is Heimdall.
headcanon completely accepted
Heimdall is such a badass hh
I literally gasped out loud when I saw this
There’s precedent for stuff like this in a lot of polytheistic religions, where a human’s life is so incredible, so much the stuff of legends, that they become incorporated into the pantheon.(the Christian equivalent is the process of declaring someone a saint).
I’m definitely amused by the idea of Pentecost showing up in Valhalla, all the Aesir eyeballing him as he tells them his deeds, and the conversation ending with, “So, do you want a job?”
