Favorite Anime Openings/Endings - Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou

"Just by being here with me,
the world has already begun changing.
This monotonic scenery,
look, it now reflects such vividness.”

aishiteru - Kourin

The truth is, everyone likes to look down on someone. If your favorites are all avant-garde writers who throw in Sanskrit and German, you can look down on everyone. If your favorites are all Oprah Book Club books, you can at least look down on mystery readers. Mystery readers have sci-fi readers. Sci-fi can look down on fantasy. And yes, fantasy readers have their own snobbishness. I’ll bet this, though: in a hundred years, people will be writing a lot more dissertations on Harry Potter than on John Updike. Look, Charles Dickens wrote popular fiction. Shakespeare wrote popular fiction - until he wrote his sonnets, desperate to show the literati of his day that he was real artist. Edgar Allan Poe tied himself in knots because no one realized he was a genius. The core of the problem is how we want to define “literature”. The Latin root simply means “letters”. Those letters are either delivered - they connect with an audience - or they don’t. For some, that audience is a few thousand college professors and some critics. For others, its twenty million women desperate for romance in their lives. Those connections happen because the books successfully communicate something real about the human experience. Sure, there are trashy books that do really well, but that’s because there are trashy facets of humanity. What people value in their books - and thus what they count as literature - really tells you more about them than it does about the book.

this is the most relatable thing i’ve ever seen in my life.
I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations.

And it was after months of silence that I realised we make better strangers than we ever did anything else.

Okay, show of hands.  Who else has experienced legitimate fear of becoming trapped in a piece of clothing in a fitting room?
