I alone can take humanity to its next natural state of evolution. Together alone, we’re inducing a tilt-shift effect, defining PS2 ladder controls, going to the mall, curing women’s diseases with herbs, softening the hardness of mother, running a doomed op, hallucinating wife and child wife, meeting Hamburger Hook, suffering the ultimate sense of peer rejection, getting anime crucified, going Gargoyle Mode, living with contradictions, embracing the arts, lusting after the great reset, failing to develop any hobbies, feeling left behind, and finding the greatest solace in slowly fading away. Everything is the Third Impact. That’s how anime works.
