  • For me, it was Trump.

    I used to hate him, but after he lost the presidency, I realised how empty my life was without him.

    From 2016 to 2020, every morning I would wake up with a smile on my face while I read the latest, dumbest shit I’ve ever heard. Each day was progressively more unhinged than the day before.

    He was the perfect receptacle of my endless rage. Sure, he was the source of the rage in the first place, but the combination of infuriation and bewilderment was cathartic.

    Being better than Platinum End is a very low bar to pass.

    The best part about Death Note was the concept in of itself. Though, if you take time to unpack the many (often unnecessary and/or contradictory) rules of the book, you might begin to notice how contrived it all is.

    The story wants to be this grandiose game of cat and mouse, but can’t keep its finger out of its ass. The show didnt know where to go without L, so they made “new L - now with melatonin”.

    The Kira and L are portrayed as tactical geniuses, but if you take any time to actually map out their motives and actions, you’ll once again, notice how contrived they are.

    I feel bad for the Mangaka, the deadlines imposed by the industry are super tight and I’m sure it had an impact on his ability to write to the best of his ability.

    But Death Note wasn’t good, it’s genuinely bad.

    People only think its good because it was their gateway anime.

    The whole show is an edgy intellectual-power fantasy, where characters play games of mental rock-paper-scissors during a tennis match.
