Wish and Chihayafuru

Per Helen…The Washington Nationals are World Series champions! I personally couldn’t root for them during the NLCS, having defeated the Dodgers in a full NLDS, but they put the Cardinals to rest in a short four games and then faced the biggest villains of them all, toxic masculinity—I mean the Houston Astros. And they were defeated, thus finally given them their just dues. Between the NHL Capitals, the WNBA Mystics, and now the MLB Nationals, beltway sports is a bunch of success and also the football racists still.

This episode, we’re talking about CLAMP’s Wish published by Dark Horse (formerly Tokyopop) and Yuki Suetsugu’s Chihayafuru published digitally by Kodansha.

The songs you heard in the episode were “Colorful” and “Youthful” both by 99RadioService and both from the Chihayafuru 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.
