Toned-down Mitchell?! BEHOLD, IT EXISTETH
Haha but seriously.
There /is/ a sort of veneer of strangeness to some events,
but this fits with the boy-narrator
and Taylor - his struggles, his weaknesses, his choices - are vastly relatable. <3
Rings a lot truer than Mitchell's typical outlandish scenarios
(there's clearly emotional attachment here),
and it's nice to get away a little from his pet themes (apart from the indulgent self-references).

Characteristic diction and humour are still present
(where else would you find such scraps of literary genius as
'an awkward cow of a pause mooed' and 'as blotchy as a dying banana' lolol),
just age-appropriate and far more down-to-earth.



Woman, ep4:
This sprung some pleasant surprises.
The whole 'is Shin a molester' question was resolved in a hugely satisfying way,
and ohh the beauty of that juxtaposition of the Ugikuku story (ALL THE TEARS) -
even if I could have done without the sickness cliche itself, sigh
(Mitsushima Hikari is so frightfully thin here ;;).


Double Tone, ep5:
Lmao A++ for the most awkward kiss ever but drama remains fantastic;
I can't wait for the next ep.
IF THIS TURNS OUT TO BE SOME CRIME OF PASSION I AM GOING TO SCREAM (AT IKUKO)


Starman, ep3:
I take back what I said earlier - this ep was really cute. /OTL
I think I've gotten more used to Sawa.


OT but I wish someone were subbing DOCTORS 2,
it's getting solid ratings and S1 was really fun(ny). :((
EDIT: EHHH was just saying this and ep1 has been subbed, this is great
