Chapter 4: Repression Paradigm

Aurora violently jiggled the joystick and swore at the television. Some wench had raped and robbed her while she was reloading. She checked her map. There were too many hostiles approaching for her to pursue the destitute whore without her head getting blown off in the process.

Chapter 3: Confession Paradigm

“So, are you gonna tell me or not?” Ruben asked, still piloting the helicopter.

From the Darkness: Why Spice and Wolf Will Always Be My Favorite Anime

I want to make one thing perfectly clear: depression sucks. I don’t mean that in an all-encompassing way either. I mean suffering from depression is just that, suffering. It is an unenviable state of being, and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.

While depression has no cure, there are several treatments available out there, both prescribed and unprescribed. For some, like myself and other self-described otaku, anime has served to heal the gnawing hopelessness we feel on a daily basis.
