Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.
Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? is an anime with quality opposite that of its cumbersome mouthful of a title. It’s about a young boy, Bell, who’s the sole steward of a goddess and fights in dungeons for her glory and his personal growth. The world they live in acts like a video game. Conquered enemies vanish, fighters level up, and so on. Not only is the anime gorgeous, but it features some truly awesome fight sequences and a powerful soundtrack. I’m only a couple episodes into this short anime, but it’s got me hooked.
