Have you ever picked anime over your family? Or really, really close friends? I choose anime over my friends all the time. But only because they’re hardly my friends (that’s the thing about friends; you have to worry that they won’t nice boat your ass). But I find it hard to betray my family in any way.
But have you ever picked anime over your family in some way? Like chosen to go to something…anime related over a family event or something? I’m forced with a such a decision. See, there’s this anime convention I so love going to but it happens to be on the same day as a local fair at our campgrounds and on my (step)fathers birthday. So, if I go to the convention then I’ll be in despair because I’m missing his birthday and feeling like a jerk. However, after my mother explained my choice (and all well knowing that the convention is the highlight of my year) he said I should go to the con instead of to the campground with them. I know I will choose my family over something as trivial as a convention but it’s still burns me (as I had been waiting to go shopping their all year…seeing as ‘someone’ had to go and ruin the showing rooms. Goddamn, Ayres). If I don’t go, my dad will be in despair that I missed something important to me over him. Inconvenient dates have left me in despair!
As a human, is my axis burned to the core? (Reference GET, bad translation, GET) Have you ever had to make a choice as such? What would you choose? What is more important? Nobody is willing to stab their mother to meet Hatsune Miku, right? Right?!
