Insufficient Direction and Sweet Blue Flowers

Episode lucky number seven, unlike the movie Lucky Number Slevin, which is an alright movie and has Lucy Liu, but anyway. The Dodgers and Astros are in the midst of the World Series as I type this and I’m missing the hot action (seriously, it’s 90+ degrees in Los Angeles) as I type this, so let’s get on with it!

This time, we’re talking about Moyoco Anno’s Insufficient Direction published by Vertical Comics and Takako Shimura’s Sweet Blue Flowers published by Viz Media.

The song you heard at the top of the episode, and that I forgot to introduce, is “Aoi Hana” by Kukikodan from the Sweet Blue Flowers anime.

As always, you can find me on Twitter @ImpassionateK, and my co-hosts Helen (@WanderinDreamr) and Apryll (@manjiorin) on Twitter at those places in the parenthesis. You can find both of their writing at The Organization of Anti-Social Geniuses, more of Helen’s writing at Narrative Investigations, and my writing at the Fandom Post.


Show notes:

0:41 – We talk about Insufficient Direction!

10:46 – We talk about Sweet Blue Flowers!

Next time is Pluto and Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches! We will revisit Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind at some point in the future because that manga is good, but just gotta get all our hands on it.
