still with you

So, I caught up with the Shin Tenipuri manga (just the scanlations -- up to 174) a while back and I think the ridiculousness has nearly defeated me, about which I am very sad. I'll keep reading because I am a completist and I won't lose to Konomi, but the heart has gone out of it.

I'm not going to vent about it because that would get me too riled up again (the Boy has had to deal too much of that already *g*) but I will say that writing With Great Power, cracky fun though it was, was also very cathartic for me. If you get a super power, you don't use it to become a professional wrestler. You don't use it to play tennis against high schoolers. You help people. You help people.

Okay, maybe that was a vent.

But there was an amazing bright spot in the manga for me: issues 127 (last half) and 128. Ryoma and Sakuno go on an arcade date. Just so sweet and normal and my small heart grew three sizes that day.

Maybe yours will too.
