As a fan of CW’s less grimdark shows (Supergirl and The Flash, although Legends Of Tomorrow has it’s own undercurrent of fun, silly moments) I am absolutely certain in the fact that there is still room for sweetness and sentiment and the “cute moment”. even in our superhero action tales.  After years of the dark and gritty, getting quiet sister-bonding moments between our Danvers women or silly Cisco/Barry nerd banter along with the melodrama and the fighty-fighty is very satisfying to me.  Indeed, some of my favorite memories of comic books past are cute ones: Booster and Beetle’s scheming; The X-Men’s summer softball games; the existence of the Super-Sons, leading to today’s ‘leave-your-cynicism-at-the-door’ query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) still finds the part where Starr and Laddie embrace after the vampocalypse at the end of ‘The Lost Boys’ incredibly sweet, asking: What’s the MOST adorably cute moment in your favorite pop culture?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I watch slice of life and humor animes, so there are millions of them. Latest one was in “Karakai jozu no Takagi-San”. My face melted in the end of the last episode when the boy finally found courage to leave a message inside the girls’ handkerchief.
