mitski's album titles are such a stark contrast to her music. you have such one-liners like "retired from sad, new career in business" and just a simpsons reference as a title only to get your heart ripped out the second you press play
also, i just rewatched a whisker away and i can’t help but be disappointed whenever i watch that movie. do not get me wrong, it is cute and wholesome but i cannot fully love it. the dialogue (at least in the dub) can be awkward and out of place, and while it is a comedy, it chooses the wrong times to be serious and to be funny. i like the protagonists, their relationship is cute but it doesn’t feel substantial and genuine, but that can be excused because its young love and it doesn’t have to be ‘serious.’ the real reason their relationship suffers is because their characters aren’t compelling. in all, i enjoy the movie because of its chosen trope of ‘person turning into a cat’ (i wish more movies and media explored this; people compare this to the cat returns, which i adore, but all they really share is that trope).
