This WAS a really good episode! I liked it a lot– I love hearing people pick apart ideas near and dear to my heart. I just want you all to know I was talking back to my screen the entire time. :3
I was also interested to hear that Sparkler readers had that immediate reaction to het romance. I used to feel that way for a long time, but I don’t anymore I guess?? It’s… interesting. (I mean some of my favorite comics I’m reading right now are like… Happy Marriage?! and stuff. Pretty uh romance novel-y.) I don’t think it surprised me, but it interested me!
I had coherent thoughts but I lost them… still, great episode guys. :D
EDIT: Also I was so stoked to hear Yuki Yoshihara mentioned– I LOVE her so much. She’s absolutely hilarious. It’s a real shame that the only thing that came out in English so far from her is sort of impenetrable for a lot of readers– especially if you haven’t read like 50000 stories about office ladies like I have
