For us, the forest and village are one. As that unification increases our power, we’re mistaking Elza’s identity, looking to get stronger by beating ass, busting up a puzzle, recruiting another gardener, accusing Tony of being a dirt fetishist, upgrading from house to tent, entering the jam vs butter rivalry, regressing Tengaar to damsel status, dispatching Hix on a bullshit quest, realizing that bullshit is real, henpecking for life, stumbling into a wild ass cooking minigame, devaluing human life, getting Sonic references out of our system, and concocting a school days plot. It’s anime. It’s war. It’s all the same.
