I’m sorry >_<

I’m sorry I haven’t been on very often as of late, school got very busy as finals are finally here and I did some traveling for job interviews before I leave Japan in less than one week. I perhaps won’t be able to update regularly again for another 2 or 3 weeks or so, but after that I’ll get back into the swing of things.

Garden of Sinners is my favorite because it is very much about people who feel like they are, in one way or another, irredeemable. And despite that feeling of being irredeemable, they all find some kind of purpose and happiness in their lives. Sometimes, in fact, the journey to redemption in ones…

Anonymous whispered: Shiki: //straight face// Tomoe: //shocked// Me: //laughing hysterically// The juxtaposition of Tomoe's mom whacking his dad over the head with a frying pan with how the whole scene is played really seriously and completely straight cracks me up every time I see it. It starts out seriously, then you have the frying pan part, and then it goes right back to the super-serious atmosphere without missing a beat. I'm sure it's not intended to be funny, but I just can't help myself.

Can’t say I blame you, I’ve shown a few friends the series and about half of them have done the same thing. I never minded that because there’s this thing where humans laugh off or smile in a knee jerk reaction to something bad. The smile in disbelief/laugh in disbelief kind. Everyone does it and sometimes even I smile watching that part (although it’s more of a grimace I guess?). It’s such a heavy and serious scene we all try to find something to break up the heaviness. A frying pan is like classic slapstick comedy, so we latch on to that.

The only awkward time for me was when a friend laughed in relation to the man-woman roles Tomoe’s dad believed in but another friend, who had an abusive step-dad, was very much not laughing at anything. I actually had to turn off the movie to watch with each individually another day.

So tl;dr you’re not the only one who laughs/finds humor in serious parts of that movie haha. …just mind your audience? Although mine may have been a slightly rare case I wonder… (・・?)


Shiki: //straight face//

Tomoe: //shocked//


I love Enjou Tomoe so much (//v\)
He is so cute!




Kara no Kyoukai Movie 5: Mujun Rasen is the best one of the series so far. Sometimes a bit confusing but the overall plot is amazing.
