Japan loves Alice in the Wonderland, and this is another tale with a twist on it. Our main character, Oz Vesalius, was told that his entire existence was a sin during his coming of age ceremony and was banished into the Abyss where creatures called Chains exist. He meets Alice, one of the Chains in the Abyss, made a contract with her to help her regain her lost memories and then together they bust out of the Abyss into the surface/normal world and found out that ten years have passed.
It's very hard to describe the plot... But the series starts off immediately intriguing, and there are lots of mysteries to unfold. Also, there are lots of heartaches and paaain... But the ending is satisfying, imo. And the art is very pretty.
I'd recommend not watching the anime until after you read the manga because the anime is not great (please, someone, readapt it) but the music is great (well, it's Yuki Kajiura) and the cast is A+.

And of course I managed to touch my nails on things after painting them lol
Anyway it's fine because I can tear the colors off later
Time for #MLCWatchParty ep 23!
I want to walk out to absorb the sun but there's no sun because it's raining
I've done this back on twitter before, but here is a whole different thing and I guess I'm always weak to meme anyway:
On a scale between intimidating (10) and approachable (1), how do I rate?
(Absolutely don't feel like you have to reply though!)
Went out today for the sun and to smell the books. There was a pop up art booth, and I ended up talking for about half an hour with the artist because I said, "that's a cute Tartaglia!"
Ahahaha. Now I have her genshin username? Idk if I can add ppl by username
Because of YYH live action making me think of YYH, I might have to go back to ffnet for my Kurama/Yomi fix...
(One sided Yomi > Kurama, really)
and now I'm done with the Narzissenkreuz Ordo quest line!
Maybe I'll just chuck it under #NeonStarRail
Okay. Everything that is not live posting about the game while I'm playing it will be #NeonStarRail
... I need to go reread that fic with Jing Yuan x Blade and consensual snuff (but first I need to find it again)
- Death Parade
Description: After death, there is judgment, which takes place in a bar. Recently dead people arrives at this bar to play dangerous games against each other to earn a chance at reincarnation, or be doomed to damnation. Through these games, their nature is revealed and their recent past and relationship with each other unfolds. The people who "work" there are called Arbiters, and their job is to judge these games.
This has my favourite Maeno Tomoaki voice type. Deep. DEEP! It's eargasm (for me, I hope for you too) to listen to him talk. Also, the op theme is such a banger with a very fun video!
- Deadman Wonderland
Description: Ganta is thrown into a for-profit prison where the prisoners are made to play extremely dangerous games to earn points to exchange for an antidote they have to take regularly to counteract the poison from a collar placed on them. Losing games also may mean losing parts of yourself (literal organs). He must somehow try to survive and at the same time, find out more about this mysterious person in red who was present during the murder of his entire class that he was framed for.
I do like death games, but to be honest, I am biased because this anime has a memorable Ono Daisuke character. So tragic, so beautiful. I love him and also his crazy obsessive stalker prison guard (Morikawa Toshiyuki).
I haven't been paying attention to the train stations. I think I missed mine... HAHAHA brb I need to retrace
I don't understand this achievement 😂
Saw a comment about hiding long posts under CW on other account... Maybe I'll do that moving forward too. But what is long, really? 🤔
(Something more than a paragraph?)
Tomorrow's Dec Recs is either gonna be bread or death games, I think
Lol, I got promoted to the Board of Directors and immediately got embroiled in a scandal because of my 1 x Notoriety card. Amazing
Bye firefish hello Sharkey and lol all the achievements like on Misskey. It's certainly a loading faster now though so that's great!
Thank you @chikorita157
Went out to Seafood City for my biweekly-ish groceries. Meats with cuts I use and also vegetables I eat! And there's also food there to tapau home. There was also a Filipino bakery around the corner so I tapau-ed some stuff there too.
My fav places to shop at: Vietnamese markets, Filipino markets
Woke up today and found blahaj zone and sakurajima social down so I just spent time off social media, which was nice, I guess. Glad sakurajima is back
idk if i can sleep tonight given my 5 hour nap, but probably shouldn't ruin my sleep-wake cycle. Gonna attempt to nap again for a few hours. Gnight fedi!
Recent conversations about Chinese culture reminded me of the pleasure I had this morning to talk about Ching Ming during a workplace Holiday/Thanksgiving zoom event.*
Idk if it's strange, but I actually enjoy Ching Ming. It's low stakes family gathering with food at the end of it.
*90% of my workplace is remote, so many of our workplace events are over Zoom or Teams
