“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” - Dr. Seuss

Last week's media (plus one from this week)

Watched a few episodes of this absolutely horrible anime last week: The Wolf and the Spices. That review (of the light novel series) and the story's premise (medieval tradesmen meets pagan wolf goddess of wheat harvest, attempts to use her to increase profits) make the anime sound like it could potentially be awesome, but sadly, it isn't. It's just kind of boring and low-budget. Maybe if it had been set in ACTUAL medieval Europe rather than a fantasy version thereof, or if it had involved ACTUAL trading rather than an RPG version thereof[1], or if the main character had had an ACTUAL personality rather than a dating-sim version thereof[2], it would have been good. As it stands, though…

The pagan wolf goddess is far and away the best part, too bad she couldn't save the thing. Skip!
