I guess this kinda represents an anticlimax then, the last episode isn’t the show’s worst or its best. It hangs somewhere around the middle, barely managing to escape the fog of mediocrity that it is mired in. Maybe i’m just exhausted, Netflix has just uploaded Neon Genesis: Evangelion and I kinda just wanna get this over with.

Both this and Toy Story 3 surprised me I guess, I don’t really remember when I watched the first two — definitely I was young and they were broadcast with ad breaks — but they felt epic, big adventure movies in their own right, despite being so small looking back. They left their mark, but never sunk in the way they might if I saw them properly.
I got drunk and watched most of this over the course of a single evening, then the rest in bed hungover the next morning. It’ll explain why I spent a lot of it in tears moaning about how hard life is for poor Retsuko who never did nothing wrong.

It’s easier sharing a body when the one you’re offering isn’t really yours. I’ve known this ever since I was a fourteen, pretending to be an adult woman to have cybersex on anonymous websites. Back when the internet was slow and those spaces still felt illicit folks were less picky about confirmation. I think they mostly liked being found desirable.
