Wandering // Naruto

Awakened Beings would like to gnaw on me

RL still trying to kill me in my sleep. Not succeeding quite as much as it was, but I'd still like to go and hide in a quiet place somewhere. I have an appointment with a doctor tomorrow to do some sort of mental health screening. Knowing me, I'll probably flunk. XD

Read the rest of Claymore to prevent me from going nuts completely. I now officially highly recommend it; you just have to get past the weird drawing style (and awkwardly-placed pants seams). I guess that for the most part, I can't honestly empathize with shounen heroes. I can't bring myself to root for them, even when they are doing something that needs to be done, because they usually come across as so fake and plastic. I'm still not 100% on what's different here, but something is definitely being done better, since I really found myself wanting Clare and co. to win.

Also-- Bleach spoilers have been read. Can't say I'm too surprised, but still loving the flashbacks. Such a nice change of pace they are.
