Sick in Bed Impressions: The Disastrous Life of Saiki K

Now, I didn’t watch this from the start. In fact, I woke up in the middle … Continue reading Sick in Bed Impressions: The Disastrous Life of Saiki K

I just watched it, and while I left feeling oddly disappointed FOR A MOMENT, it gave way to a more positive and thought-provoking mood a bit later.

It’s funny. I can have all of my friends and family telling me to learn something, and I will stubbornly refuse to because I’m lazy. The moment a fictional anime character does something and I think “Oh man, that’s sick, I wanna do that”, I literally go out and do it after a few days.
