An ungodly amount of lines and big letters aren’t enough to describe how spoilerish this post is, if you have been reading the manga, up to the chapter 36, you are welcome to read my writing on it, if not go check it out then come back hehe.

Ok you have been properly warned.

Citrus… I’ve been so delighted with the anime that I almost forgot about the manga…till the new translated chapter came out..I began to worry when I notice it was sort of a letter…and written in past tense..by Mei… she was incredibly well articulated ( considering how has she been honestly) with her feelings and how she came to fall for Yuzu..to let her know she had made her choice to take on this Aihara family legacy thing and get married ( cringe ) and to stop any contact with her…

I honestly was having a revolution inside, I had some actual feelings, like sadness and anguish and… well done Saburouta, you made me have an emotional connection with your characters, I deem that as a very important characteristic in an author, either if they do comics, manga, books, movies, I wanna feel something dammit.

So, I was upset at first, thinking that was the ending, cos, COME ON, how could it end like that!!! But I learned it’s not, now we aren’t sure how this will solve, maybe Mei’s fiancé ,who knows Yuzu likes someone and you know, Mei asked him not to tell Yuzu about it..intervenes, maybe it’s Yuzu’s mom, or even in a more climatic way, it’s Shou, Mei’s dad, stepping in to free his daughter from this burden. I don’t think Yuzu crashes the wedding, that’d be too cliché, then again Citrus does have a shitload of clichés so who knows… In all, I am hopeful that it’ll have a happy ending, I mean, come on, it just can’t not end with them together. It could be too that Mei grows a massive pair of woman’s balls and decides to stop it at the last minute, cos some drama can’t hurt, CAN IT?

Actually.. it’s good the story is finally moving, we spent too long watching Mei feel uneasy and unable to express herself, so at least something is going on.

At some point, I thought maybe Matsuri would be good for Yuzu, not like she’s the greatest person on earth but I sorta rooted for her the 5 minutes that it seemed she could be a rival.

It was sweet to see Yuzu’s friends worried about her, cos she’s out there living (this chapter was a time skip, I’m unsure if it’s like 6 months or a year) specially  Shirapon when she notices she stills wears the ring she got for her and Mei (there are 2 rings)

So..in all, I was a bit sad to learn some people go as far as to wish death and illness upon authors when stories don’t go their way, someone mentioned Kodama..ehh NTR author got some serious hate (mostly from the western world) but you know, if you don’t like it, don’t read it, look for other things. I certainly didn’t like nTR but I waited till it ended and read the finale and it was ok, I looked for other works of her and she has some more positive ones, like Renai Manga, so don’t be mean to people, those people writing manga do their best and we all get to enjoy endless worlds and universes thanks to them. We should say thanks.

Nothing left but to keep enjoying all the anime, manga, movies and books that are out there till we know how this one ends, or if we like to, drop it, I won’t, I’m a bit too invested now, but I surely won’t pull my hair about it.

2018 Fitness overhaul

UPDATED: Don’t wanna get repetitive with this, yet, so I’ll add my second new routine on here.

So, I’ve been doing the same routine for a couple of months now, I don’t believe in just switching routines every 4 weeks like some people do, you gotta give it time to work, also progressive overload is your friend, anyway, I wanted something different for my biceps/triceps/shoulders day and since we have a returning coach at the gym,  I asked him for guidance, cos that dude is HARDCORE.

queen_of_strong_style_by_vashperado-d83ke9i

It’s so hard to find an anime girl fitness image that is not hentai or a skinny girl running, seriously, only Goku works out for real or what? Yisus.

So, taking advantage of the superior recovery women have when it comes to training, we started this pyramidal system, first 25 reps, then 20, then 15 then 10. Obviously weight increases each time,  so it goes like this:

  • Frontal shoulder raise with dumbbells followed immediately by lateral raise
  • Triceps extension with the rope thingie
  • Concentrated bicep curl

NOW THE FUN PART

Plyometrics…

  • Something like an ab crunch + tossing a damn ball (not the big light one, a small heavier one)  up in the air and catching it 30x
  • 2 minutes battling the ropes ( I was able to for like 10 seconds straight)
  • As many push ups as possible

All that resting 1 minute or minute and a half in between, 4 rounds.

Then!

  • Triceps  push down thing with the bar  to failure with about 60 lbs
  • Ez bar preacher curl  to failure with 20 lbs
  • Abs
  • More abs

THEN

40 freaking minutes of stationary bike

And then you’re done, it seems like a lot but considering you gotta do it fast , the only “slow” thing is the bike, the rest is a breeze, lies, it was so hard, but I loved it. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for Friday.

FRIDAY UPDATE:

So chest, back, bicep and triceps cos why not.

  • Sitting rowing
  • Fly
  • Triceps extension rope

All those, first a set to failure, then 3 of 20 reps.

Then..

  • Battle rope making waves at the same time 2 minutes
  • Yogui A on the freaking trampoline  50
  • Tire flip baby! 10

Then…

  • Concentrated curl  10
  • Lat pull down   15
  • Knee raise     to failure

 

Then bike, should be 35  minutes but I managed 20.

 

The only thing I don’t wish to change is leg days, I just added lunges to leg leg day and glute bridge to ass leg day. (Ah, and weight, more weight on the squat, I’m close to lifting my own body weight <3) Forget that, I am changing at least ass day, lol, I asked Pepe ( the hardcore trainer) to help me shape my ass and get some mass there, without looking yucky, he said it’d take about 6 months, I was thinking a whole year so it’s even better! He also promised I’ll be able to perform a single pull up at least when March is ending, or else I’ll have a free month at the gym.

If you like some mix for the gym music, I have all sorts of songs in my iPod, but in this case I want to recommend some, just for the fun of it.

Nan’s playlist for da gym:

  • Jungle – Emma Louise
  • Nowhere – FictionJunction Yuuka (Madlax anime)

Dagashi Kashi 2 ( anime)

So, as you know I recently watched the complete first season for Dagashi Kashi, I found it lovable, funny, interesting and it even had some random yuri tease or as tv tropes page calls it, “Les yay”, what else can you ask for? They were gonna have a second season too! so I had to catch up! I even liked the OP song !

I was excited about the second season..until..

 

dk1

Shidare Hotaru in the first season

That is all fine, the animation was good, the character design was very pleasant, but alas! A different studio was in charge for second season and you can really tell…

dk2

S. Hotaru in season 2 …

Like…you can really see the difference, I checked out the manga and this one is more faithful to it, I have to admit, but.. I LOVED the more refined face detail of the first season, the color palette… everything was much better in my opinion, Saya is pretty much the same. But that alone, Hotaru’s downgrade is enough for me to drop the series, even tho I do enjoy the stories, I tried to watch it, I made it to episode 3, but I can’t, I like the old studio animation 10000 x more.

So this is how an anime title gets dropped by me, change drastically the design and most likely I’m gone.

Too bad, but oh well, I’ll check reviews when it’s over to search for any les yay scenes and watch them alone.

Go watch season 1 and if it doesn’t bother you, watch the second one.

Beauty at every size, shave or not and more

Yeah, I usually don’t go into detail with this cos it’s touchy and no one is asking me but..this is my blog so I can write what I like! Trying to be somehow reasonable tho

I do not wish to be rude or hurt anyone’s feeling, but honestly, people get offended way too easily nowadays, I don’t believe that’s healthy..now without further ado

Love yourself,  you are fine the way you are, yes ok, let’s stop a second, it is one thing to not hate yourself cos you are not a size 0 or you don’t adhere to a standard of beauty, but what puzzles me is ,this seems to also mean “you can be super fat and still be ok”..well, I don’t think human body looks at it’s best when we are overweight, I do think body needs exercise and proper nutrition and that shows, people who indulge too much and pay no mind to working out, well, tend to look a certain way, you can’t tell me that’s how you are meant to be either… most people usually do eat a lot to get to that, ( I’m not even talking about morbidly obese people and no, people with legit medical conditions are not the majority, please) I am also aware that there may be shit going on in your life and thus you gain weight, hell, I gained 25 kilos (50 lbs) when I was at my lowest regarding self-esteem, but that is exactly why I pay attention, I know if I gain weight it’s due to me being unhappy, when I feel fine I eat ok and workout and I look fine too.

I honestly feel it’s more of an excuse to just eat what you want, but then again, I am not a huge fan of food as you know, I like it, I like some food more than other, but I don’t LOVE eating, it’s sometimes well, a necessity, cos if you don’t eat you die, and I must eat certain amount of carbs, protein and fat to achieve what I want, that’s how I see it, so maybe temptation doesn’t really play a role with me and I can’t objectively talk about it,  food as an addiction has obviously never been a thing for me.

So, people can eat what they want and be fat or not, that’s ok, but I don’t want people to force me to agree with that, like “omg you don’t find this girl beautiful!! you are the worst”,well damn no, I have preferences and we all should be allowed to! Like not wanting to have sex with trans women who still have a penis, what is wrong with you people!? we can choose whatever the hell we like!

I remember, when I was fat, a girl told me she liked me but not my looks and that maybe after I lost weight we could go out, or something like that, at the moment I was quite offended and most people would agree she was mean…was she? NO, she didn’t wanna date a fat person as much as I prefer not to date,I don’t know, blondes or girls who don’t workout at all, it’s a preference and we all can have it and she did nothing wrong by telling me that. I can see it now, I myself stopped talking to this one girl online cos of the very same reason.

Which leads me to the whole shaving legs thing… I do not like it when we, as women as expected to do stuff, like put on makeup, I barely do and only when I want to, again, this may be different cos I only date women and most women for some reason don’t care about body hair, I do though which is funny enough, I mean, if we are already dating and she stops shaving I’d ask what’s going on, I do prefer no hair thanks and I like to keep myself like that, but I also respect people and don’t try to change them, so I’d only end it, not talk her into shaving cos that’s not cool.

But, do most feminists purposefully not shave to go against patriarchy beauty standard? I mean, I know this one girl, she wears make up and is a lot more girly than I am ( I’m what you’d call a sporty femme) but she is like “meh I don’t have to look like this or that, I won’t work out etc” and some girls in her “group” won’t do anything that is considered to fulfill a beauty standard, even if they do like that, follow me?  I started working out to stop being fat, cos I hated what I saw in the mirror and how it reflected how incredibly shitty I was feeling, now I do it cos I wanna look hot, for me hot is some muscles and being fit, I don’t give a flying fuck when others don’t find this sexy or whatever, but it’s annoying when fellow women tell you “you are already fine, you don’t need more working out”, if you don’t wanna “submit” to beauty standards, ok good for you, I am not doing that, I like doing that shit , human body looks much better when fit, it’s my belief.

This was mostly a rant so, yeah.

fit-mom-maria-kang-whats-your-excuse-1

This photo created a huge hassle back then, this woman is really inspiring and I like her a lot, (her name is Maria Kang, if you are sorta agreeing with me so far, check her out, if not..well…)but people said she was “fat shaming”, well, no, we do make up excuses, that shit is real, I’ve made excuses, we all have had, “it’s too late, early, it’s raining, it’s cold, this, that” when we really wanna do something we do it, period. Again, if you are like, legit sick, you better rest, but still no excuse to go and eat a bunch of crap. Jeeeeeesus.

 

 

My head is a jungle (jungle, jungle)

Those are actually lyrics from this song… “jungle” by Emma Louise ..saw it on this ad for black opium perfume,anyway it works for my post too!

So a friend is briefly back from Australia, we met with the other 2 friends, I haven’t seen any since this one friend left, she was our pillar, I always said that, while it was nice to see them again…

Things haven’t changed at all in this year, we ended up talking about the very same things, making me remember why I didn’t see them for so long, I ended up drinking way too much ( for what I drink now) cos it was the only way I felt supa comfy and , yeah that’s lame eh, but again, at least I can better understand now why things are like that, so I didn’t get drunk but I did go well pass over my calories.

People say to move on, and let go, when you overeat/drink, I personally think : “Sure, you shouldn’t beat yourself up” but it doesn’t mean you just move on and don’t try to fix it, I went over by 830 freaking calories, so the next day, I ate 630 calories less than what is on my “schedule” this means today I can “save” only about 100, tomorrow another 100 less and then it balances out. Most people wouldn’t do that, but I’m lucky to work at home so I can and I did, this means hitting the gym on Saturday which is totally ok, so now I can really move on with that. Not forgetting what I told my returning friend, most people bore me when I’m sober and I wanna hang out with people I can stand sober.

Even if this means not hanging out at all, please refer to my previous post Say

Me may meet on Saturday, if we do, I’ll bring my own craft beer and have 2 and be done with it. As we speak, well, as I write I’m eating yummy fruit and checking Cinema for tickets for Nanoha movie, but no luck  u.u

Tomorrow shall be a day to watch all the new anime episodes!!

Athlean X (and for women) review

This is a fitness post, I’ll try to write more cos I’m really into it lately, by this I mean I am consciously making wise choices and training hard and constant, although, if I feel sick I’ll rest cos if I don’t things end up being worse. So here I go.

I love watching videos about fitness, or reading about it, new workouts or tips on the classic ones, all of that, there is one channel I specially like on YouTube, it’s called Athlean-X ™  , I LOVE it, because the guy in charge of it, Jeff Cavalier ( hope I got his name right) is DA bomb! Seriously, he really speaks like he knows his shit, even when he gets really technical and shows stuff on a skeleton and I barely understand, I love it cos it’s like the total opposite from the much known and spread bro-science ( he also has a special section for bro-science btw) so, checking his videos, he does train people for a living after all, so while checking out the videos I noticed there was a version for women… I was unsure but I ended up checking it out..

Yep, it wasn’t good, I do not know how much he is involved with it but I guess not much, first of all, the girls presenting it, well they look fine of course but they don’t, well look, so fit as to be presenting such a channel, plus I prefer it when it’s one person hosting, but that doesn’t really matter, people may look this way or the other but be very wise.

But I found the whole thing to be too much like a women’s magazine.. “X reps for glutes” , “slim your waist like this”, and the reason I love Jeff’s channel so much is cos he focuses on things like strength, form, benefits, alternative workouts if you can’t do a certain one, building good foundations. The women’s channel is mostly “burn belly with this, with that, slim arms, butts, specific foods and more butt”.  they do have some ok videos but seriously, I don’t feel they target women who really want to challenge themselves and lift heavy, plus they don’t use such an elaborate language as Jeff does, I almost feel they treat me as if I can’t understand what guys can. I do care about my glutes and abs (still hidden) but I care more for ways to squat better for example.

Yes, guys have different goals, I absolutely don’t give a single fuck about gaining 2 inches on my biceps, lol, but I do care about proper form for shoulder exercises for example, foundations, valuable tips you do actually get from the main channel, so yes, even when some videos are obviously for men, plenty of things we women can take and use, specially those videos when he’s telling the viewer not to believe in magic pills and work hard and eat right or they won’t see results, cos that’s true for all of us.

No offense to the women’s channel or the girls doing it, I just would have much loved to see the same, more serious, hardcore attitude from the original translated into it.  So, I’ll stick to the original, they have so many videos too. Of course they have a page with programs you can check out that too, but what I like the most is you really don’t have to, watch a bunch of videos and see what you make of it.

That’s Jeff, looking good for being 40+ yo natural lifter, 10/10 would follow his advice

Dagashi Kashi (anime)

Yes, another anime title, cos…it’s that time of the year.

I saw the season 2 of this anime was out, and I thought.. “That girl has funky eyes..she must be some lunatic..it may be funny..but candies?” So I took my chance and started watching, some people said it was boring and etc, but I found it enjoyable and delightful, I LOVE Hotaru, (lilac crazy-eyed girl) and Saya, the guy doesn’t matter to me at all.

They have some references to anime in general, which is always cool and you can learn about candies, cos in anime you can learn about any-thing.

DagashiKashi-032316.jpg

I know it’s not yuri or anything, but there’s funny vibes with Hotaru and Saya, and Hotaru is..well… special, cos she’s freaking weird and Saya is more of a tsundere, but also she seems smarter than Hotaru and the dude, or at least with more common sense.

It’s nice and different, not for everyone I think, but I liked it and will continue watching and then go for season 2!
