Brain: What is it you love so much about Night in the Woods
Me: Well, let’s see.
1. It shows the harsh realities of living in the lower middle class
2. Accurately portrays the struggles of a starving urban town
3. Puts a lot of value into the bonds between family and friends
4. Shows the inconsistencies and sometimes unhealthy realities concerning religion and what happens when you put too much anchorage in your beliefs
5. Gives a very logical perspective to religion and ethereal entities as a whole
6. Has a mentally ill character that is not romanticized, is not evil, and is not magically ‘cured’ by the end
7. Shows that suppressing anger is not always the best option.
8. Has very relatable and realistic characters
9. Shows the struggles of ordinary folks just trying to make due and make the best out of their shitty lives
10. Doesn’t spoon feed you the idea of happily ever after and shows that a lot of the time life sucks and there is no real reason for it and you just have to roll with the punches and get hurt and it’s okay because when it hurts to lose something, that something meant something to you.
It’s crazy re-watching the End of Z episodes and realizing that everything that’s currently happening in Super happens BEFORE End of Z.
It makes you wonder, how will Toriyama tie Super to the final chapters/episodes of Z? Will Beerus and Whis, as gods, decide to no longer be affiliated with the mortals on Earth to prevent the dangers that transpired in Super to happen in the future? Will everyone have their memories of the events of Super erased?
Toriyama mentioned that the end of Super will make people believe that he planned it all from the beginning.
Toyotarō: T-That’s so much pressure… (sweat). But I think it’ll be really cool to help Dragon Ball someday reach its final chapter.
Toriyama: Oh, that’s good! People will go “Wow, Toriyama-sensei planned it all out from the beginning!” and I’ll look really cool (laughs).
