      Hello! Thank you for this informative read. I especially appreciate the citations! I am familiar with Murakami’s work and had a strong reaction to “All About Lily Chou-Chou”, but I was not familiar with the history of the I-Novel nor Makoto Shinkai’s work. I appreciate the lessons I received through this article, and I definitely know whose filmography I’ll be exploring next!

      Influence of the I-Novel (私小説) on Makoto Shinkai's Films

      Hey! Cool article that brings up a lot of interesting points on the Undertale ethos. I actually didn’t notice a lot of the tactics employed to ensure inclusion. I definitely feel that these are large reasons why the game is so widely loved and has been so successful.

      Skimming the comments, I see a lot of talk about the graphics. Personally, I think intentional “realistic graphics” only work against the longevity of a game; if anything, it serves as a way to date it. Stylized graphics are the way to go! Think about how great Wind Waker still looks compared to Twilight Princess?

      Undertale and Social Justice Themes: Is "That" A Human?

      This is a great article that supports its thesis with specific, diverse examples. I like how the episode synopses were concise and on-topic! Fresh Prince was a great show that used its collective talents well. I think the show was able to effectively ground these episodes through character-driven writing and its exceptional cast. If these social issues are considered “still relevant”, it’s because they have always been.
