Okay, this is the last batch of academic stuff I’ll post for a while. The only way to force a level up is to grind.
For those who’ve never heard of it, the best anatomy book I’ve ever found (that many of these muscle drawings are crudely copied from) is Strength Training Anatomy

My friend Mizuki and I went to a flower garden in Koma (高麗) today. These are known by so many names. Manjushage (曼珠沙華) is the most common in Japan. Lycoris is the scientific genus, and Red Spider Lily is the most likely English translation. They also bloom in white. You can’t pick the flowers, but the garden staff was selling them at the entrance for pretty cheap.
The lycoris has some rather ominous legends in Chinese and Japanese mythology. They often bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox, so they are said to have a strong connection with the underworld and serve to guide departed souls to their next reincarnation.
Anyway, they’ve been popping up in anime a lot recently, so I figure it would be nice if everyone knew the symbolism behind the flowers. Also, a bonus orb-weaver. Sorry, I like spiders.
