I started this series of posts because, despite its flaws, I’ve been loving this adaptation as its own thing. These detailed posts mostly highlighted how the adaptation was taking advantage of the medium to tell the story (like the use of color and symbolism). I also pointed out the changes I appreciated, and enjoyed drawing connections with all those old books and movies.
The truth is that after thirteen weeks, this is starting to take a heavy emotional toll on me, and I realize that I really need to spend less time with this story. For my own good.
I still have things to say, and this doesn’t mean I won’t ever write about the show again, but I can’t no longer commit to weekly updates. Again, I’ll most likely be back with posts focusing on short and specific things because I can’t never shut up about Banana Fish, but… I just need to not be dedicating such a big part of my week every week to this. It’s… It’s an intense show, folks.
I’m thankful to everyone who has been following these posts along, and I apologize if I’m disappointing anyone. You can still find all my bad jokes and some rants on twitter!
