    I'll add it to the reading list. I vaguely recall starting it a while ago and bouncing off for some reason.

    It has a somewhat Teppu vibe, I find, with regards to the technical knowledge and art (better than early Teppu for art, as well). And it's interesting that the central character isn't some kind of genius with a super-special finisher skill set or any of the like. He has average talent, with some better-than average ability to pull something out spontaneously, or copy something he has experienced. Otherwise, he needs to work his ass off with training (and does) and practicing (and does).

    Hence, 'all-rounder'.

    True, and also spoilers:
    there’s a very good chance that there’s more reveals to have about the residents of Westview, some of which may not take place within the boundaries of this series. In the next set of spoiler tags, I’ll list some internet rumours, so that people can opt out of seeing those if they want.
    end of spoilers

    spoilers:
    1. There’s a strong rumour that ‘Herb’ next door is actually Herbert Wyndham. There’s a lot of heavy speculation that High Evolutionary is the next big bad for the Avengers, and he makes sense given Wanda & Pietro’s connection to Wundagore.
    2. Squadron Supreme is supposed to be showing up at some point due to Doctor Strange’s Multiverse of Madness or whatever it’s called that supposedly spins directly out of WandaVision. Dottie Jones is supposedly Arcanna’s real name, and she was definitely married to a Phil Jones, as Dottie is (and Dottie is notably absent from Jimmy Woo’s whiteboard). It would also make sense of why ‘Pietro’ is very sketchy on details of Wanda’s early life, if he’s actually Whizzer/Blur.
    3. We don’t yet know who Dennis the Mailman is, but he’s not really affected by Wanda’s control, so there’s something special there. He may be Jimmy’s guy in Witness Protection, or one rumour is that he’s actually Willie Lumpkin, paving the way for the FF to join the MCU. That one’s probably doubtful, but Dennis is definitely ‘someone’.
    4. Anybody else? Norm? The Harts? Advert Lady? Any of these could be someone significant. They’re using this series as a launchpad for future MCU projects.
    5. Why is Hayward after Vision’s body? Is he actually Ultron? Or since the rest of his unit turned into a circus, could he become Ringmaster? (I’m clearly just reaching myself now!)

    ....I swear, some people can really get on my nerves.

    Customer: Don't you have fitting rooms in this store?

    Me: Yeah, but unfortunately they're closed till further notice.

    Customer: (scoffs, drops her items, and walked away) Then why am I wasting my time here?

    Me: ....

    Oh I don't know...It's your own damn fault you didn't want to read the 6 goddamn signs in the store that says we're closed! Like seriously, I would had exploded had she kept running her mouth off.

    No worries. It's just really frustrating nobody reads signs at all...And then they get mad later on as if we didn't warn them.

    Like damn.

    Many people are inconsiderate and feel that 'service' means 'servants', I figure.

    Since Time Magic is canonically depicted via cutscenes and he's a practitioner of it,spoilers:
    Mickey could potentially end the battle with a Stopza and decapitation
    end of spoilers. Of course, since DB likes to include non-canonical material in their matches, I can easily see spoilers:
    Yoda taking the win due to whatever TK absurdity he's capable of in the EU stories.
    end of spoilers

    It's a damn shame that we didn't get to see what effect Ultima has in KH. (Nomura, you damn tease!)
    Ichigo: What even *are* you?!

    Kenpachi: Some say my mother was a train. Some say that I'm a rejected Godzilla monster too strong for the series canon. But everyone says: I'M THE KEEEEENPACHIIIIII!!!!
