I received my new VISA card and this time I didn’t wait. I fished my old card out of my wallet, set it down on the table, and set off in search of the scissors. The last time I got a new card, I just slipped it into my wallet, promptly forgot about it, ended up confusing it with my old card, then spent an entire day trying to figure out why it had suddenly stopped working. And so, I fished the scissors out of the butcher’s block then returned to the kitchen island where I got to work, first snipping away at the surrounding area, then targeting my name and number with surgical precision, cutting through the letters and numbers at varied angles, my efforts so focused in their intensity that my hand started cramping. By the time I was done, a seemingly infinitesimal pile of plastic shards lay before me. I swept them into my hand then visited every room in the place, sprinkling pieces into different garbage cans to stymie even the most dedicated of identity thieves. Then, satisfied, I headed back to the kitchen. Where I discovered I’d actually cut up the wrong card.

Anime. Finished Akudama Drive.
Loved the production design and the premise but found a few of the characters annoying in the early goings and the direction a little over the top at times. But it gets better, much better, and darker, much darker. The strength of its back half vaults into Top 10 of 2021 contention. Thanks to Tauri Jay for the tip.
Watching Beastars season 2.
The first season was one of my very favorite anime of 2020 and is, by far, Akemi’s #1. Season 2 doesn’t skip a beat. Beautiful character designs, gorgeously fluid animation, a compelling story, and some truly wonderful writing.
Looking forward to Evangelion: Thrice Upon A Time…
Although am fully expecting to be left alternated elated, frustrated, and extremely unsatisfied.
So, what are you watching?
