Chic Pixel Plus Episode 52 – Good Vibes

Rooster God Okami

In our first episode of 2017, we take a trip in a time machine… All the way back to November 2016 (when this episode was originally recorded)! Times were bleak because Trump was just elected, so really, not much has changed. But never to stay downtrodden for too long, we get those good, good vibes goin’ this episode with comfort media favorites such as Sailor MoonPokémon, and Yuri!!! on ICE. Happy year of the rooster, everyone!

About Anne Lee

Also known as apricotsushi. Anne can be written with the kanji for apricot (杏), and sushi was the most quintessentially Japanese thing I could think of when I was 13, resulting in my goofy, albeit memorable, nickname.

    I was surprised how much I ended up enjoying Yuri on Ice. The characters were cute and funny. I wish the animators would just make them explicitly kiss and make out, but not every show can be Junjou. Haha. Speaking of Tsumtsum, walmart has Tsum Tsum valentine cards now! Maybe I should get some. And speaking of Trump. I am proud of all my fellow Americans who marched against his platform of racism and misogyny. As a gay man, I hold no respect for him or the antigay vice president-elect Mike Pence. I voted for Obama, and I’m ready to vote trump out of office when the time comes. Oh and speaking of final Fantasy I can’t wait to play 15🤗

    • Thank you for your lovely comment, Bruce! I wish we had tsum tsum Valentine’s Day cards here in Australia, but sadly we don’t get a lot of the tsum tsum merchandise that Japan and the US gets. I too am extremely proud of everyone who marched to protest Trump and his supporters this weekend! We recorded this episode back in November, but our feelings are still the same. My husband ended up getting a copy of FFXV for Christmas, so I may end up playing it sooner than I thought!
