You avoid contact of the first kind at all costs. Do you fear to feel other people? If you don’t get close to others, you won’t be betrayed or hurt. However, neither will you forget what loneliness is. A person can’t erase sadness forever. Everyone is alone. However, people can forget and so they are able to live.
If someone asks you what this show is about, just send them this picture with no context.

Why do we not talk more about the implications of western artists and art instructors putting down “anime” as an artform and telling developing artists not to draw it?
How does lumping an entire continent’s cartooning style into one category of “bad” and “not permissible in class/professional work” not scream “UNACCEPTABLY RACIST” and “SUPER FUCKED UP” to you people?
Do you even SEE ME? Do you even KNOW what country I’m from? You’re gonna stand in the same fucking room as an asian person and say “anime’s bad except for a few exceptions like Hayao Miyazaki”? Shut the fuck up when you’re talking about my people’s art and please take your white man opinions and SIT THE FUCK DOWN
