  1. That’s quite an accurate picture of yourself if I may say so! When it comes to melodrama it has to be done right. If it isn’t than the entire episode is ruined.

    • Death Note is marvelous if, like me, you love a bit of melodrama!
      Have you seen how Light writes? And his tennis match with L was blown completely out of proportion! ‘Ooh, if I win he’ll know I’m Kira…’ NO. If you win he’ll know you’re freakin’ good at tennis, get a life…

  2. I would have kicked that radio too.

    We’re actually learning about melodrama in English right now, and apparently there’s always been people who look down on it. I agree that it has to be handled properly or it doesn’t work.

      • I think that at the time, melodrama was not viewed as intellectual theatre, so certain people looked down on it for being less mature.

  3. I watched the Gintama scene again LOL love it makes me laugh every time im glad you managed to find it!
    I love melodrama it gives me a reason to laugh at the characters..

    • Took me ages to find but, didn’t allow myself to give up! It was the perfect scene to illustrate my point!

      Oh yeah, forgot you’re a cold-hearted creature who doesn’t cry at anything…
      I’m glad you didn’t laugh during Clannad: After Story episode 16 though, I would’ve thumped ya’!

    That reminds me of this wonderful scene in Kino’s Journey where someone suggests critics exist merely to ruin things for others…
    Seems apt.
    Saying that, my next post is a fairly critical one, I guess that’s pretty hypocritical of me!
