Sometimes I hate anime. Have been watching Idolmaster for some time and it sort of became my go-to show to relax in the evening — dumb but kind, something that netflix would probably call a “feel good” show. But in episode 20 authors decided that it’s time to squeeze some tears out of me and began punching me with Chihaya’s arc, methodically and sadistically. But that was not enough. To make sure I wouldn’t get away, when I was already down they kicked me with 約束. God damn, I’m quite a stone-hearted bastard but it’s impossible not to tear up watching and listening to this. The singer herself broke down and started crying performing this song live. Cheap tricks, A-1, cheap tricks you used there.
