  1. “I felt sooo tense as Akito approached Tohru… ”

    Me, too! I kept telling myself that Tooru’s pure kindness is a force of nature, but seeing Akito approach her was flat out terrifying.

    “I actually fought back tears, watching Yuki’s fear melt away in the company of his friends (plus Kyo). ”

    At first, I was trying to understand, from the perspective of craftsmanship, how this show effortlessly bypasses all higher order logic and interacts directly with the heart. I’ve given up trying to figure it out; it’s just beyond me. I’m just along for the ride at this point…

    That simple scene of Yuki enjoying himself, in the company of Tooru and her friends, against the backdrop of Akito’s machinations — in _spite_ of Akito’s machinations — was just beautiful.

    Akito has no idea what he’s up against. And that’s just fine, because to Tooru, she’s not engaged in combat. She’s just Tooru. That’s enough to bring light into that corner of the world!

    • I love reading your insights into the show. You have such a wonderful way with words! I honestly think that you’re a much better writer than I am, but would you ever consider writing something together?

      • Wow! While I can’t agree (comparing writers is hard to begin with, and I think you’ll selling yourself short), I really appreciate your kind words!

        “would you ever consider writing something together?”

        Sure! What do you have in mind? Feel free to stop by my Twitter DM: @CrowsAnimeWorld
