It seems that I can’t stop feeling melancholic when it comes to the lack of interaction. Then again, maybe I’m worrying too much about it?
Also in this digest, I will focus on Photo Kano Episode 10 and yet another disappointing episode of Ore no Imouto 2. (Image Source)
Creator Breakdown and Addressing It
As with most bloggers, they value discussion on what they wrote. Since I don’t use social networking outside of Twitter, I find commenting on blogs more comfortable than tweeting because I’m afraid of offending people and end up defollowing me. In fact, it happened yesterday morning when I melt down and someone defollowed me minutes later, thus making me feel bad.
I felt that yesterday’s breakdown is a wakeup call to do take action instead of complaining about it. It’s true that I changed things around such as writing an editorial every week to keep things fresh and abolish screenshot captions. I think I should stop worrying about comments on a constant basis and just write and socialize. I realize that complaining about it will just alienate subscribers and won’t do a thing to solve the problem. Besides taking a short break from blogging, which I plan on doing when I go on vacation in the last week of June, I need to socialize more in the blogosphere such as tweeting more on Twitter and commenting more. I know that I have been slacking off and spend time playing too much computer games. Hopefully with more socialization, the problem will resolve itself so that I can focus more on pushing out good and creative content, hence the title of this digest.
Now Anime Impressions…
Photo Kano Episode 10
I felt that karma would eventually catch up to Maeda and it did as Mai blackmails him with food. While the overeating is hilarious, I felt sympathetic towards Mai as she faces problems based on her appearance. It seems that she is the shortest girl on her Rhythmic Gymnastics team. Thankfully Maeda encourages her to continue despite her not advancing to the next round. I admit that she looks adorable.
On the other hand, I think Maeda’s passion to artistically capture a girl on his camera captures the beauty of photography. While I finally got a new Canon Powershot S110 last week, which is considered one of the best compact prosumer cameras that is not overly expensive, the camera does not make a photographer; it’s how the photographer captures the image. It’s probably another theme I will discuss about in a future editorial once I finish the first season of Tamayura, which is all about photography.
Ore no Imouto 2 Episode 10
I don’t know what to say about this episode as this episode still itches the idea of incest. Except now, we see Kirino wearing a wedding dress getting picked up by Kyousuke riding a bike to see a Meruru concert. It’s disappointing to see how the second season is going compared to the prequel as they already cut the relationship between Kyousuke and Ruri short. Not only that, the thing that made Ore no Imouto such as Closet Otaku thing is now gone. Now, it’s being used as backdrop to ponder on the siscon thing. Because of this, I felt that this show lost its way as they took away the best couple in the show and replace it with an annoying sister. I doubt the last few episodes will fix that since the source material is going that route (spoilers ahoy).
Aside from that, the only enjoyable part of this episode is Kyousuke asking for some more abuse from Ayase.
