Your teachers are probably considering how your art might work in a gallery, in which the work is not given narrative context by a story/dialogue like comics are (except in the case of depictions of historical/mythological events), and in which more attention is focused for a longer period of time on the piece, unlike wall art in your home. Meaning is often how works distinguish themselves and make an impression in that setting, most often because making something truly uniquely visually striking on its own to gallery viewers is the more formidable and sometimes unobtainable goal. But you may have no interest in the gallery.

It seems to be a similar case to how my jazz guitar teacher impressed upon me certain rules or guidelines which help when performing in a jazz setting, even if not necessary in every setting or hard rules even in their appropriate setting. That is to say that going along with it and learning to think in new ways can end up being helpful outside of that setting, even if the teachers are wrong about it being an imperative for all settings (if that's what they insist). Off the top of my head, it seems like being able to convey meaning through visual elements alone could prove very powerful and poetic in a particularly crucial or impactful comic frame. That said, I get that there's only so much time a person has in the day. Not all of one's time should be spent in a genre or sphere in which they don't want to specialize. And anyway, I don't really know the full extent of what your professors are asserting. There are some bothersome critical analysis frameworks in the art world which don't really help anybody.

Lol. Yeah, I liked the second season better as well. I figure there's probably hope for a third as the last two volumes of the LN have been announced, but you never know.

Hyouka seems to be in the same predicament. The novels have continued past the anime which covered the first four. Except Hyouka has less of a chance because it's been so long since the first anime. Also, from what I've been told, it doesn't end on such a cliffhanger. Still, it'd be a shame if either wasn't renewed.

Dropped Hunter X Hunter, picked up OreGairu. Finished OreGairu. Needed more OreGairu, so started Hyouka. Like Hyouka even more than OreGairu. Almost finished, and need more Hyouka.

This is a thread for National Novel Writing Month this year. I have decided to "participate," as I need another creative outlet other than music atm, though I am setting my sights more on a short story or novella - something I will have time to edit; however, I wanted to facilitate more camaraderie this year - discussing ideas and getting feedback along the way. Skype groups of strangers historically don't go well, and I end up having to play mediator, so the "official" discussions ought be held here. However, I encourage PM or Skype discussions with users that you know and trust.

Hunter X Hunter (2011). When is this supposed to get good again?

Oh, and BnHA, which I've enjoyed thus far.

Bright Size Life is one of the better Metheny projects. The title track is great. Got to see him live and he was pretty great. He's not one of my favorite album artists because he can get a bit corny for my tastes, but he's a great player. Very melodic. Interesting how all of the guitarists on ECM records were very different even though the label is associated with a very strong aesthetic. Check out Ralph Towner and Terje Rypdal for reference.

Also, Wes Montgomery is one of the greats. The Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery is where it's at.

And of course Close to the Edge is great. Relayer and Tales From Topographic Oceans are great albums of their too. I guess the next step would be to listen to King Crimson's debut, though it's not my favorite (once they get to Lizard is when I tune in, Lark to Red is best era tho). It's one of the most acclaimed. KC albums have to be purchased tho. They're nowhere to be found in streaming platforms. They're still in print tho, at least.

YMO is GOAT material. They also individually had long, interesting solo careers and produced a ton of neat stuff for other people. Yellow Magic Kayohyoku is a good compilation of a lot of the synthpop stuff they produced, although they did more than just synthpop.

You've pretty much stated outright, though, that the defining factor in your situation is your anxiety about loud noises and uncleanliness. It's like an allergy. You can be allergic to cats, and recognize that allergy and that it's not necessarily your fault, without actively disliking cats or thinking that they are universally dangerous. You don't have to make that allergy into something more than it is. It's not about pretending to like them; it's about challenging that internal dislike that would necessitate said pretense. And it's up to your discretion as to what to do about that allergy, whether you try to build an immunity to it or just avoid cats, but you can't pin that allergy on cats. They don't know any better than to have high levels of dander.

On the uncleanliness factor, too, it's not as if adults, who eat ass, masturbate without washing their hands, have nocturnal emissions, menstrate, lick their fingers when they turn pages, and brush teeth and put on eye makeup in bathrooms full of fecal matter are really cleaner than kids who pick their nose or suck their thumb or put gum on things. Uncleanliness is pretty much a given if you have a body at all.

I understand where you're coming from, and you're definitely not alone in that view, but your anxiety is not their fault (or yours).

I won't tell you that you need to spend all your time around small children, but it's not helpful to anyone to dehumanize them with epithets like "germbags." This is prejudice against an entire demographic. Pay in mind that while they have had less time to figure out how to express themselves, they have their own microcosms as real and vivid as ours. Mental patience as well as verbal patience is essential.

That's just a weird thing for small children to do. How old were they again?

Nah, little kids aren't typically like that. His parents just gotta lay down the law.

SOPHIE's (finally) debut Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides is pretty wild. Post-industrial bubblegum bass for the new millennium. Moments of heavy distorted bass and bizarreness aside sparkly pop hooks.
