The hilarious thing is that the last time I moved, 2 years ago? I spent the time before my move freaking out about moving and watching Hikaru no Go.
.....bring on the EPIC PROCRASTINATION.
|This is Akira without Hikaru.||This is Hikaru without Akira.|
|This is Akira with Hikaru.||This is Hikaru with Akira.|
LOOK AT THEM. LOOK AT HOW THEIR HEARTS FILL UP WITH UNSPEAKABLE EMOTION FOR EACH OTHER IN EXACTLY THE SAME WAY. GOD.
- In the penultimate ep, Ashiwara tells Saeki-kun -
(before he drags him off to play footsies under the table :D) -
that "meals are no good unless you have someone to eat with. And Akira-kun never eats during a game."
EXCEPT THEN AKIRA-KUN DOES. HE EATS! FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER! WITH HIKARU! BECAUSE HIKARU IS HIS ONE PERSON, THE ONE PERSON WHO WILL ALWAYS DRAG HIM OFF TO EAT LUNCH AND PLAY FOOTSIES AND/OR GO UNDER THE TABLE WITH. <3 because hikaru connects him to THE REST OF THE WORLD, hikaru is his way out of his isolated self-imposed tower of seclusion. Or maybe that should be monastery. Anyway. HIKARU IS HIS ONE THING FOREVER. ♥
- Never watch the last 2 eps of Hikaru no Go if you're trying to focus on things you need to get done for the day, because you will inevitably spend the rest of the day CRYING FOR NO REASON and thinking about the BEAUTY AND EPHEMERAL NATURE OF LIFE AND THE UNIVERSE. blah.
why can't you dress like that all the time.
ok so i lied, 3 pics. I LOVE YOU TOUYA I LOVE YOUR BEAUTIFUL FACE. :( :( :( :(
arboretum: "THEY CARRY THE SUNSET."
arboretum: DID YOU REALLY JUST SAY THAT. THE SUNSET.
arboretum: it's ok. I went off on some random thingabout how they were perfect complementary colors
arboretum: I have no room to complain
bookshop: purple and yellow ladfjlsj aka THE COLORS OF THE SUNSET
arboretum: yes!?! OBVIOUSLY CHOSEN ON PURPOSE
arboretum: sometimes akira gets more greenishbluish, but then hikaru gets more reddishorangeish
bookshop: and hikaru gets redorangish
arboretum: SO OBVIOUSLY THEY ARE ALWAYS COMPLEMENTS
arboretum: god our conversations about hikago are completely insane
bookshop: god i actually don't think there is anything insane about talking about how they are color-coded to be together sfjlsdjfksks;
bookshop: i'm just like, well duh, how is that not a given hahahaha
arboretum: I don't either or I wouldn't be saying it
arboretum: but it sounds insane
bookshop: "you're saying i'm.... reading too much into this. i don't understand."
arboretum: I mean I am making fun of myself for being all omg complements
arboretum: but at the same time, I am 99.999999% sure that obata did it on purpose
bookshop: THEY TOTALLY DID IT ON PURPOSE
So that conversation was last night. This morning, I'm watching the amazing CARRYING THE SUNSET scene and I notice:
SO TOTALLY ON PURPOSE. OMG. AKIRA'S THE ONE DRAWING HIKARU OUT SO IN THIS SCENE OF COURSE HE GETS TO BE WEARING THE VIBRANT YELLOW. OMG RIVALRY ROLE REVERSAL. COLOR-CODED ROLE REVERSAL. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH SHOW. :(
- seriously, HOW IS THIS SHOW THE BEST GREATEST MOST LOVE-FILLED THING IN MY LIFE THAT'S ONLY GOTTEN BETTER YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR. AHHHH.
