This is an idea that’s been rattling around in my head for a while. Spurred into life thanks to a not so recent discussion from Karandi of 100 Word anime talking about smart characters in anime, with some assistance from my recent watching of season 2 of Dr. Stone.
While we all love to see smart people doing smart things in anime, there’s something just as charming and appealing about the smooth brained antithesis of characters like Senku that makes us love them just as much.

The result of which has made me realise I need to give myself a break. Not that I intend to stop writing or anything, but I’m going to pull my foot off the gas for at least a month.
For January, I’m going to continue writing the series posts I have been doing for the past few months, but I’m going to take a little bit of time to reset myself and come up with a different upload schedule that doesn’t have me pushing myself to play catchup on a constant basis.
I’m still all riled up from talking about the Mandalorian season 2 finalise, so much so that I simply couldn’t wait four more days to post it. It’s fine though, because I’m pretty on top of my top ten entries now. All I have to do is write these intros, as you might be able to tell from this very specifically dated one. Today’s anime is one of those ones that never seems to be on my mind all the time, so much so that I end up watching it in chunks rather than week to week.
Which is weird really, because when I am watching it, it’s a great show. One that I’m glad I get this opportunity to talk about it considering I’ve hardly said a word about it the whole time it was airing.
