Overreactions Week 9 Winter 2016

(Weekly Review)

I started doing these weekly reviews to force myself to keep writing about anime while I was working on launching my new dakimakura store Waifu Pillows, doing a massive overhaul of one of my niche sites, laying the groundwork for my new niche site, working on a new physical goods business, writing an eBook, studying for school, and of course all while still working a 70 hour work week. Now, as you can see my overreaction weekly posts have slowly gone from writing about, somewhere around 5 or 6 shows, to basically being nothing but a Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi weekly review. There are a bunch of great shows this season, a lot that I wish I had the time to write for, but life (and the absurd amount of projects I take on) have certainly gotten in the way.

We can only work with what we got, and we’re all prisoners of the moment here so let’s overreact!

ERASED

Weekly Review:  With the raw emotions that were beautifully on display in episode 8 of ERASED, we got the most heart warming episode to date. This week was different than most weeks though. The emotions that were carved into our limbic systems this week were an awkward mix of joy and sadness. These feelings brought me, as a full grown man, to tears as I watched the scene preceding the credits. Seeing how moved a little a girl was to see a full plate on the table for breakfast, something I have never really given any thought to, was really eye opening. It made me think.. I’ve been blessed with such a simple and easy going life. I’ve always thought of myself as a grateful man, but seeing how waking up to a full meal for the first time brought Kayo to tears, makes me wonder if I even know what it means to be grateful. I have been on what I believed to be rock bottom many times over the course of my life, with but only the terrible decisions I made as an adolescent to thank, but never have I been in such a place where the gesture of a home cooked meal could bring me to tears.

ERASED

Overreaction: Unless ERASED nose dives from here till the end of the season, I don’t think there is an anime out there that can uproot it from the number one spot on any of the many anime polls out there–it’s just that good.

After another failure (this time in his original time period) Satoru begged his revival to take him back, to give him one last chance. Playing off his emotions, his revival answered his call sending him back to a couple days before “Day X”. Continue reading “Overreactions – Week 7 Winter 2016”
