been feeling kind of paranoid lately









Take that time by yourself to get to know yourself and rediscover what makes you shine. Don’t surrender yourself to waiting, and don’t stay isolated for too long, because there’s a beautiful you the world is dying to meet. 

comics that end sadly but wind up being replied to with love are what I live for

You are a woman with a man inside watching a woman. You are your own voyeur.

Margaret Atwood, The Robber Bride

This one always hits me hard. How many times a day do I check myself automatically - do I look okay, do I smell okay, do I sound smart enough, do I sound too smart, am I being too bold. Even when no one is watching.

If you’re reading this, here’s your reminder that it doesn’t matter what men think of you, not even the men who have planted their own unreasonable standards inside your head. You can stop checking yourself.

Some translations of Ratio x Birthday in Hamatora Drama CD 1


* Spoilers of Hamatora Drama CD 1 in BD/DVD 1

I roughly translated the synopsis on the official website and a piece of strong Ratio x Birthday in Drama CD and some spoiler comments mentioned by Japanese fans. Sorry for any errors!


Title: Cherry Blossoms We Saw Sometime (Itsuka Mita Sakura)
Synopsis: Birthday suggests gathering people and going to see the blossoms. Ignoring annoyed Murasaki and Ratio, Birthday makes Hamatora(Nice & Murasaki) prepare lunch boxes. Birthday will hold their space with Ratio. In the meantime, they get a request from Koneko, and……
(in the 4th(last) track 1:51~2:20)

Ratio: Do you think you will die so easily? Cherry blossoms, and fireworks, and autumn leaves, and snows…I WILL show you over and over again.

Birthday: “WILL show me”? YOU will?

Ratio: For that, I’m by your side.

Birthday: That sounds like a cheap pick-up line. Are you conscious that it’s shameful?

Ratio: Will you laugh?

Birthday: …No. I can’t laugh at all, though.

(*Note: cherry blossoms - spring, fireworks - summer, autumn leaves - fall, snows - winter. They must be representing 4 seasons in a year……)

(Japanese fans’ comments arrangement - I haven’t actually checked these yet, though)

Young Ratio and Birthday were so cute, too! They went on an adventure but got lost on an unfamiliar street. They also went to a mountain to see sunrise, but they encountered a bear on the way :D www

Come to think of it, I think even if they met a bear, they were OK thanks to Ratio(’s minimum and arms) :D

Ratio has been always so devoted to Birthday since they were young…

Ratio is always swayed by Birthday, but still, Ratio confidently thinks he is the only one Birthday has XD I can’t win against Ratio. www

Ratio’s monologue at the end is so sweet, maybe even kinda dangerous ;D


In the 2nd track, they play Romeo and Juliet. For more info, check here!


OH MY wwwwwwwwwwwww The full script is sooo needed!!

"First fortune-tellers, and now actors? What’s with you lately? Are you fed up with doing odd jobs?"
"That’s not it. I just think we’re missing out if we’re not trying different things and having fun."
