Is by Meimi, that wonderful Goddess who brings joy and happiness to the hearts of Ingrids.
This time, Meimi brought joy by doing a layout of Isumi Shinichirou and Waya Yoshitaka, of Hikaru no Go. It is full of wub.

"I've got an awesome idea for a new comic! What if a terrorist was in a delivery room waiting for a pregnant woman to give birth so he could kill it!" - Gabe, Penny Arcade.

I know I've impressed some people with my ability to predict the outcomes of certain things. Sometimes it's funny (see: Those Books I Hate), and sometimes it just gives me a wonderful feeling like I've accomplished something, like I've been an observant, attentive reader (see: Hexwood).

And sometimes I figure out things that make me feel so utterly miserable there aren't words for it. When you know something bad is going to happen, and you figure it out chapters/episodes/volumes before it actually happens, it casts a shadow on your enjoyment of things prior to it.

Spoiler for episode twenty-five (or possibly twenty-six) of Full Metal Alchemist: I realized, shortly after Hughes introduction, probably around the time that his daughter was born, that he was going to die. Hughes was a walking dead man, and I loved him, I thought he was fabulous, he was just a wonderful character. I enjoyed every minute he was on screen, but it was constantly there, that knowledge that he was going to die, and I wasn't going to like it when it happened. I think that's why I didn't really bother downloading any episodes after that point. Because Hughes' death depressed me, even though I'd known early on that he was going to die.

Now, I've gotten the same vibe while reading Impulse, and I think I know what's going to happen, and the thought just tears me up inside. It makes it very hard to continue reading, even though I only have eighteen issues left before the end of the series. If my gut instinct is right, it's going to hurt.

We started Pretty Barbie Dressup Party last night (well, technically this morning), but I don't really feel like talking about Charlie's Angels meets Final Fantasy right now. Maybe another day.

The state of perfect apathy has not yet been reached,
