Reading nooks with views of the hip Shimokitazawa neighbourhood in Tokyo, Japan
A quick hop from Shibuya and Shinjuku, Shimokitazawa is a nice change of pace from the craziness of the big city. We stumbled upon this little shop selling books and curiosities with seating areas where one can take in the scene over a cuppa, and feel safe about burying one’s face in a book and being lost in thoughts.
You really can just slap the SnK opening onto everything apparently.
So I haven’t seen the ep yet (sue me, I was reading Honey & Clover NO REGRETS) but can we talk about the body language in that last pan out? Like they could have had Joan in any number of positions - one knee on the chair standing, for instance, or standing on both feet. Moreover they could have played surgeon correctly, and have Sherlock laying prostrate on the (big enough) table behind them. But instead they chose to have Joan straddle him. It’s a position of power, and of intimacy.
