Following up on my previous post on Kaguya-sama I've binged the whole thing. And would like to share one of the moments where the barriers go down, and there's no mind games... just real talk. Student Council President Miyuki Shirogane takes the others out to the roof to watch the stars, and as astronomy is his passion he gets so wrapped up talking with Kaguya that his barriers come down. The topic soon turns to the lunar legend for which Kaguya is named (which for the sake of convenience I will put a short summary video of behind the cut).

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat among yourselves.

In the UK a patient has become only the second person to be declared free of HIV after a bone marrow transplant, though it's too soon to say that this is a cure.

The White House has said that Democrats are "harassing" POTUS 45.., which I sort of thought was their job in many ways. But then I think they might be looking to find anything to distract from the complete damp squib of the North Korea talks last week.

A senior Minister has quit the Canadian Cabinet over the Government's handling of a bribery case

My summary of the Brexit situation is perhaps best summarised by the fact that last week a topical news satire show gave a salient update on the current situation, only for me to realise that this was a rerun ONLY because the host happened to mention "It's six months to Brexit" when it's now less than four weeks.Sweet FA has moved forward and a lot of things have taken a lurching step backwards.

Apparently Fox dropped a digital Aliens based animated series last week. Did anyone notice?.

"Doom Patrol" continues to entertain, they even showcased a new (Well, new to me, I don't think they showed up in the Morrison run, but maybe in a later iteration?) personality to Jane, Silvertongue, who has a nicely televisual ability which she uses to great effect against some passing Nazi's. Also there's a terrific little cameo at the end of the episode which reminds us that the Doom Patrol was ludicrously weird LONG before Grant Morrison came along.

"Power Rangers Beast Morphers" launched, with a stronger than usual set up, and what looks to be an engaging cast, and possibly our first line up (even for three person core team), without a white male in the line up. I suspect the comedy relief security guards are going to get old VERY quickly... probably faster than Victor and Monty in Ninja Steel, which is REALLY saying something.

Oops, late addition which as token Brit I should probably mention, the next Pokemon games; Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. will be based in Galar, a Pseudo-British locale (In much the same way as Alolah is Hawaiian I guess).

"Yeah, it’s interesting because as this idea about gender equality was brewing up inside of me and I was combing through Kirby’s pages and pages of work, I saw that a lot of that stuff was already embedded in his world and the way that Darkseid and his Cronies talk about Granny and the Furies. It was really fascinating. I feel like I’m pulling directly from his world and highlighting the color or turning up the volume.

Kirby knew that women were capable and strong and equal, but he also knew that wasn’t [widely seen to be] the case in his present day. So that’s stitched in there. The way men comment on Barda’s body. The way that men on Apokolips talk about the Furies. The way Gilotina, who’s not in my book, handles a handsy guard. The way that Granny treats her own girls. It felt like a real ripe time to take a look at these kinds of issues within the context of a story that was already inherently commenting on it and addressing it.

Women have been enduring these kinds of stories of not being able to advance in fields for years, and even with progress being made, we still face challenges. Look at all the headlines these days. It’s amazing that we’re saying enough. With the Fourth World, I thought it would be interesting to see an awakening on the level of a Me Too movement, but on a planet where everyone is really the bad guy — even the gals – because everything is heightened."

It was a joint DC/Dynamite publication.

It opened on Bruce Wayne in the Alps, asking Henri Ducard to help him solve a mystery.

The mystery was a murder in Gotham.

He'd arrived at the crime scene and asked Captain Montoya for a moment alone. )
