lol I got May’s TokyoTreat box today, and this month’s noodles are kitsune udon, what Ochi had in the cafeteria scene I read however many days ago that was. This one’s Maruchan’s 赤いきつねうどん to be exact, though I have no idea what makes it red. I can’t read like half the ingredients and TokyoTreat doesn’t say in their booklet, but it’s not because it’s spicy, because it’s not, nor that it was supposed to be spicy, because TokyoTreat always says when something is spicy or sour and will even make it out to be very much so even though none of it ever actually is. Disappointingly. They’re all weaklings, apparently. Anyway, the soup wasn’t spicy, though there was a tiny packet of 七味唐辛子 included (barely enough to make it barely spicy). It was good. I’d have been more excited if I actually liked toufu lol but the texture is just awful. I picked it out before I did anything else.
I finished ch 2 of クールドジ男子 and read ch 3. 三間ぁー
♡♡♡. He’s so dumb I love him. (Although that could be said for all of them…)
I love him… Also, I didn’t expect it, but it seems his default personal pronoun is 僕. At first I’d thought he was just using it to be more polite, but even in his internal monologue he uses 僕, so I doubt it.
I can’t wait until I get to ch 5, Hayate’s and Mima’s “date” a.k.a. their first meeting outside of a small animal café. (Hot iced coffee…)
Also I watched the PV today and each of the characters only has like one line but aaaaa Umeyan’s voice sounds so good… I’m gonna fall in love with Mima even more. No! Stop! He’s already my fave!! Augh, why’s October gotta be 5 months away??
I finally started ch 1-5. SCOUTING of 2.43. I read 2 pages, putting me at pg 82. It wasn’t clear from the anime, it seemed like it was all the same day, but when Kouhei pretends to be feeling unwell and excuses himself from practice to go spy on Seiin is three days after they watch the recording of one of Seiin’s matches. Also Ochi specifically goes out looking for him because Yuuhi’d seen him doing perfectly fine not long before lol
Also I’m counting these because I read the subtitles/lyrics:
The last one was a lot harder since it’s faster and my reading speed ain’t up to par yet, but I got the gist of it from it and the audio. Also, tons of cute kitties! So yeah, I found a new artist I like, and I’ll definitely be watching more of their music videos at some point.
