Hey, it’s been a while.
Turned out I had a pretty bad fever but not that epidemic thing that’s been making rounds around here. Whew.
Many thanks to everyone who wished me a speedy recovery. You guys are great!
But when it rains, it pours and I surfaced from my sickness to find that my university is intent on fucking me over due to technology errors of all things. I’d say I’m set for a busy week but the blog will be active in the mean time.
This morning dawned with a great gift for me.
By the time I lost all of last night’s dinner and what felt like my whole digestive apparatus, I was hurting all over.
And now, my temperature just shot through the roof.
In other words, I’m sick as fuck and unlikely to do much more than curl up in my bed and curse all existence for a few days.
So I’ll be taking a break from blogging for the rest of the week – even typing hurts tbh – and probably won’t be able to visit other blogs either. If all goes well, i.e I don’t end up in the hospital, I’ll see you all Monday.
In case you missed the previous FMK posts, know that this is a series where I basically pick my top 6 characters from each anime series I watch in a month, put their names through a randomizer to get sets of names and then pick from each set those that I’d sleep with, get hitched to or chop up had they been, y’know, real.
Well, that’s not quite right. Only the screwing would happen had they been real. I doubt marriage is for me and murder sounds like a one-way ticket to prison.
Now onwards to the fun bits. Enjoy.
The mystery of how Crasick Boy – actual name Nakao – died outside of Yomiyama is solved at the beginning of this episode. Turns out he didn’t die of the collision with the boat but rather from a head injury he got from banging his head on the staircase at home. That explains the vomiting and his clumsy swimming. Chibiki is the one who tells them this, piecing the story together from the words of the detective on the case and Nakao’s family.
Here we have another episode that’s half cute antics and half wtf-ery.
Hey, here’s our beach episode.
A Letter starts with Miki noting that there are a lot more zombies out now. She then sees an image of Kei reading poetry but it turns out to be Yuki struggling with classic literature. Yuki gets all worked up over the feelings of someone from 800 years ago being transmitted to them. Miki fondly offers to help her with the work and they read it over together.
The last episode ended with 9-3’s homeroom teacher pulling a knife on them and acting in disturbing ways. I thought he was going to attack them but no, he just rips up own throat. It’s gruesome. Arterial spray and traumatized kids everywhere.
