[baseball] sweet lou

love is holding a girl's hair back as she vomits into the toilet.

Yesterday I marathoned Honey & Clover 14-24 and the specials.

...I'm really glad I waited to finish this series right as the next part has begun airing. And I'm not sure if it was watching the first half of the series as school was winding down and my stress levels were high, but I connected with the latter half of this show much more than the first. The characters, the angst, the humor, the relationships, and especially the themes of the second half (TAKEMOTO'S JOURNEY) have all burrowed their way into my heart.

(Consider this whole post a placeholder until tomorrow when I can sit down and make the usual long and boring reaction post! And hopefully the one-liners will come then too.)
