All of the Sailor Scouts’ faces look the same.
It’s cute and all, and yeah, the storyline is closer to the original.
But, as far as animation and art style are concerned,
they offered us Sailor Moon and gave us Archie.
Standardize their hair and they’re basically the same cookie-cutter person.
Am I the only one who’s kind of disappointed?
Let’s not get carried away here.
#25,682,467 out of 24 billion on the queue for today
and I don’t have time to be picky
Or facetious — I don’t have time to talk to you.
I know what used to be
But let’s talk about what is:
a never-ending sea of hellfire
millennia of bludgeoning and rape
emotional torture to the end of the end of your life —
and you say you’d rather this.
this is what you want. where you want.
i’m holding the pen.
sleek and black and boiling with power
it scalds my fingers with every touch but i endure
because this is my fate.
too many forged signatures
ruined accounts and casinos.
but at least, i was good at it.
so good, apparently, hell pulled me out of retirement.
now you’re standing below me in shackles
waiting for my judgment.
hell has gotten crowded, so I’m here to consolidate.
a tick of one box means eternal damnation,
the other means nothing.
no opportunity for retribution,
i can never put you back where you belong.
no more hiking or business trips
no weekends, no drunken escapades,
no bills — no choices.
i never thought i’d see you here.
but let’s not get carried away.
ticking boxes can wait
i’m been meaning to ask you
all this time
how you’ve been.
Goomba Orbs galore,
adults passing time like kids
