We’ll be starting the “Re-watch under the Full Bloom of Spring” tomorrow, so I made this post to guide expectations for how I plan to do this. It also serves as a bit of an introduction for anyone who is still wondering what this is.
“You exist within Spring”
I’ll do one post each day, covering one episode each. The planned dates for this event are then Monday April 3 to Tuesday April 25. I wanted to finish this before the end of April for thematic reasons (and to not drag everyone along longer than necessary). This leaves five buffer days in case life hits me with something unforeseen (as it so often does).
I want this to be as interactive as possible, so your comments are greatly appreciated. Just please be mindful of people who are watching this show for the first time, and don’t mention anything that happens beyond the episode I’ve posted about. We’ll get to all of them soon enough!
“Isn’t it funny how the most unforgettable scenes can be so trivial?”
The majority of each post will be random thoughts I had and things I want to point out. If you’re watching the show with me, I’d love to talk about these with you, as well as any scenes that I missed.
Also, I’ll do very little summarizing as I’m assuming you watched the episode if you’re here. Of course if you’re just reading these for fun you’re more than welcome to do so, but you may be missing out on some context.
“Music is freedom”
I will try to highlight one of the musical pieces in each post. I feel that this show has a criminally underrated soundtrack, and most of these tracks have really enhanced my experience in watching this show. The track I feature will almost always be from the episode, and I’ll provide a link for you to listen as well.
“By exchanging notes, you get to know one another”
Your participation is a big part of this. It’s not a community re-watch if we don’t share it with each other, so I’m relying on your comments as the primary means of interacting with everyone about each episode.
Of course, I don’t expect anyone to invest this kind of time for nothing. Each post that you comment on will get you a ticket in the lottery drawing (so a max of 22 tickets or so per person) that I do at the end of this. I planned at first to just give away a T-shirt but given the level of interest I intend to get some more prizes as well, so there’s a good chance you’ll win something if you participate.
“Mozart is saying ‘Go on a Journey’ “
That’s about it. I’m really excited to be doing this. Are you? Check your Readers for the first episode post tomorrow, and I hope everyone has fun.
