That was an absolutely amazing podcast. I think you’ve all outdone yourselves; heck, we’ve all outdone ourselves. I don’t know if many would agree with me, but this will probably go down in my mind as the best podcast in the history of Kazamatsuri. It’ll be hard to top this one, but I’m keeping my hopes up for refrain.
I’d definitely like to commend the cast as well. I don’t think you could have brought together a better cast for this one. @Aspirety for his psychological science background, @Bizkitdoh with his raw emotion, @grooven with her enthusiasm, @Naoki_Saten with his analytic viewpoint, and @Zosonte with his personal attachment to the route just made the back-and-forth between everybody so much better Big round of applause for all of you folks.
I guess the key point to take from this podcast that I don’t think was mentioned in the forum is Mio’s own fallacy for herself. She believes that the only way that she could keep her own identity is to remain immutable; to remain this white bird. She failed to realize (and eventually did, thanks to Riki) that it is how others view her that makes up her identity. The blue which changes her makes up her identity, and the only way to keep your identity is to let the world know that “this is me! this is who I am!” and hope that the world understands her. But, really, as long as even just one single person in this world understands her, that is enough
And the last 15 minutes cracked me up way too much. I had to hold back my laughs while listening to this at work. The second key point to take from this podcast is that Riki is, indeed, a pigeon.
And I’m sorry @Kanon but no matter how much you may like Midori over Mio as a character, the only way to talk about Midori as a person is to talk about Mio as a whole because Midori is, at the end of the day, part of Mio, and not a “person” at all, as much as you would like to believe. If you still disagree, then let’s take this outside cracks knuckles
(and by outside, I mean in the Mio discussion topic)
Oh right, and congrats @Naoki_Saten for being the MVP this route! You were definitely my bet for this one, so I believe you deserved it. Let’s see if my bet for the Komari route wins, heh
