These last few days were so fantastic! This was the first time I got to meet a long distance friend so I was nervous because anxiety and all. What if I wasn’t a proper host, what if she realized what a loser I am in real life? But it went amazing! She’s so great guys, and she was really patient with me.
After the initial nerves, I loved showing her around. It was so interesting to see my country and my city through her eyes too. It’s given me a whole new perspective. She taught me the wonders of banana pancakes in return, so we’re pretty even.
Also bilingual friendships are great because of all the moments of “Mmmm…what’s the word…wait let me google that really fast.” And cultural differences are fun.
We stayed up till 5AM yesterday and had to get up early today because of her flight but it was worth! Best time I’ve ever had watching Yuri on Ice with someone, 10/10 would do it all over again! Will probably eventually pass out later today but still, worth it.
one more thing to note about ansatsu kyoushitsu is nagisa’s development. i love karma, but nagisa would be that “this dude is awesome too” character or just basically my next favourite character of the manga. from start, he looked like a normal person to me, but as the story progresses, he impresses me quite a lot - from being a sick-ass hitman, to having set a life goal.
i never thought about his parents until i watched/read the nagisa’s mom arc (and before, the time he met his dad) and it was such a pity of him. in the end, through this chapter, i am happy to see him getting to finally see his parents together.
nagisa now lives with a good life. everything is clear of him.
can we all protect nagisa now? he’s still crying ;-;
