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.
One Punch Man
One Punch Man is a short anime series about a bald super hero who can kill any enemy, no matter how strong, with a single punch. He finds himself bored fighting crime when his foes are so easily vanquished. I’m halfway through the series as One Punch Man officially becomes a low-rank super hero despite his immense power. One Punch Man has some great action and hilarious moments, but I expected it to be more entertaining than it has been so far. Here’s hoping the second half shines.
