Wow, that's a lot of money. *opens wallet*

Man, I don't skateboard but I want that deck so bad. Dip into my savings so I can continue hoarding shit I have no space or need for, or save my money?

The deck is actually really cool. The graffiti side is so amazing, but I ain’t shelling out money for it

The first episode was great! Sped on right through the first few days, so it does make quite a number of changes. Gearing up for a 12-episode series by this pacing. One change was definitely a shocker...

12 episodes? Well.. that’s disappointing but not surprising😑 But if the pacing is done well, it can work🤔.

Does anyone know if you can still watch the first episode?
The episode will be streaming until the 21st March at 7:30pm JST

Yeah, I’m not surprised either. I imagine it is to avoid running the risk of the show not being popular and spending too much money on it.

Hopefully they nail the pacing. The first episode gave a lot of people a bit of whiplash because of how it skipped a few thing and with just how fast it was, but it wasn’t so fast that it was bad.

So expect Horimiya pacing. Gotcha 👍

EDIT: I stand corrected, this felt way faster than Horimiya😰
That said, the action on display here was pretty good 😃👍
I just hope they‘ve worked out the pacing for the episodes going forward🤞
