This is a good time to become anime. Do we have the technology yet? Where can I hand in my rancid, disgusting flesh suit?
There’s a bit of a divide whether or not you should stretch before working out. Personally, I don’t. If you’re going to go through complex motions with your joints, I don’t think it’s best to stretch out your muscles beforehand.
Warming up is a good idea, of course, as is stretching after exercising. I never stretch when I enter the pool or the gym, but I do some ten laps of slow swimming or get on the stationary bike and make sure to not skip a step in my twenty-minute post-workout stretching program.
As you may have heard, Boom Boom Satellites singer Kawashima Michiyuki died earlier this month. His bandmate Nakano Masayuki wrote that Kawashima was now soaring around the world, finally freed from the restrictions of his body. “His passing is not a tragedy, but the achievement of a lifetime goal and a happy ending”. Let’s hope that is true.
I like that they’re not showing you sit-ups. Sit-ups are bad for your spine. There are better ways to make your shadow dragon rise, as demonstrated by this episode.
While I was working on this episode, I was texting with a friend who sprained her ankle today. I suggested stabilizing exercises before since she’s always had unstable ankles, but she didn’t listen. Be smarter than my friend: Invest in a wobble board, and use it regularly.
I wouldn’t want to get to the office all sweaty so I don’t know if I can recommend this particular training exercise for your morning commute. But it’s a good idea to train your posterior chain and calves, so pay attention and don’t get distracted.
The show’s subtitle 「~ひとつ屋根の下で~」 means “~Under the same roof~”. The girls are moving in together.
I don’t actually recommend this episode’s exercise as it’s too taxing for your spine and your hips, unless you’re a slim little Japanese girl with the corresponding joint flexibility. Consider side planks or side bridges instead.
This movie is a retelling of the entire story, with extra scenes interspersed, and so should be watched after spread (but assumedly before Lostorage). I have some thoughts (spoilers) after the break.

Thus ends another chapter in our subbing and anime lives. Did you enjoy this world of Amano Kozue? Unlike Aria, everything here is possible right now, and not just in hundreds of years. I believe the series speaks for itself, so there isn’t too much to say. We’ll see you soon for more Wixoss and Anitore.
