What did you think of it, /a/?
For those who haven't seen it yet:
Talked about this yesterday, but the central theme is regression of time each dream takes place in a younger mindset: Old woman with a dead husband, Middle-aged housewife, Hedonistic adolescence, good vs. evil youthful absolutism, a child's game. At the end of the episode the mother embraces her entire existence in the form of confronting herself at her earliest and most honest incarnation and accepting everything she has come to represent and will represent through her entire life. I know it was just a dry run for beautiful dreamer but it's my favorite episode anyway just for the amazing character arc the mother gets.
Thank you anon, i saw a fucking great episode i didnt know Lum
So I've been reading the manga like crazy. I'm about 260 right now, but it's getting to be repetitive. I'm not sure if I should skip/skim through most of the chapters or just skip to near the end. Any advice?
I can't really answer your question, but I can tell you that if you skip any chapter, by the time you finish, you'll be so addicted that you'll go back and read them anyway.
But each chapter is what, 16 pages? Why even bother skipping?
A Rumiko manga getting repetitive? How unheard of!
