SAKAMICHI NO APOLLON: Love, Bromance and all that Jazz

Love me an underrated Slice of Life that revolves around strong friendships. Aaah my heart. Friendships for me have always been more important to me than my romantic relationships. It’s the philosophy I live by and this is one of those shows that portrays it so beautifully. Sakamichi no Apollon (aka Kids on the slope) has got the love, the bonds, the honesty, the fights, the understanding wrapped in rounded music to set the mood just right. A beautiful front row view of how one person can make such a difference in your life.

I was pulled by the whole “before-after”Continue reading “SHE WAS PRETTY… and she still is so F*CK BEAUTY STANDARDS!”
