The Spirit Puppet, Or Rather Her Love And Resuscitation

Взорът ми е нагоре към есенно небе и падащи листа
И ме изпълва чувство все едно че някой, някой ме зове.
Това ще да е гласът на единствения благ човек,
Който плака за тук спящата аз.
Translation credit: me.
Feel free to use and/or expand.


What we value as art requires two things: effort and meaning.
Of course, the effort needs not be physical. Nor does it require an art degree.
Of course, the meaning needs not be intended. If the audience can derive meaning by themselves, it's okay.
The creation of art is more accessible than ever. Practically everyone who grew up on the internet has been involved in the creation of art... at least prose if nothing else. We're in for a great future.

Random youtube comment

As far as I'm concerned, Goblin Slayer depends on the meta-narrative about a group of murderhobos playing a mediocre D&D campaign. It's not even that meta of a meta-narrative, as the whole gods rolling dices thing is... a thing...
Which, pretty much, means that Goblin Slayer's big problem is one: everything else.

Goblin Slayer

It was a really streamlined experience. The core engagement was about D&D roleplaying game with murderhobo characters, but it did not depend on the viewer having a previous investment in the concept. Log Horizon is infinitely better, for example, but it depends on the viewer having an investment in this society-creating aspect of MMORPGs. Retarded Dragon Girls is also miles ahead, but it depends on the viewer interpreting everything through the lens of a trpg campaign. So Goblin Slayer was okay for a mainstream entertainment.

Girls in anime

they all strive to be great Nonoriris.

They may claim they want to be great princesses, equalizers, or whatnot, but nah. They want to be Nonoriris.

Pertaining to magical systems

[15:23] erejnion: the problem with Toaru is that the magical system is way too unsystematic
