Dial “Tekken” for Feels.

So, I’ve been getting back on the exercise kick lately. Jogging, pushups, lots of getting thrown to the ground for fun in what others might call judo. Things like that. But, you know, it’s important when you’re exercising that you don’t forego any exercise groups or types. Cardio is important. Friends don’t let friends skip leg day. It’s also important to exercise your heart muscles. With that in mind, I’ve got some capital F, Japanese-animated Feels for your Wednesday. There’s some Japanese kana in there, but you won’t need to know what they mean for the feels to wash over you.

Was that story of loss, love, grief, and emotional rebuilding not enough for you? Was the subtle poetry juxtaposed with casual animation insufficient to make tears well in your eyes? Well, that’s okay. Have another one! This is called Furiko (pendulum).

tekkenThese two little animated shorts are made by a man named Tekken (yes, after the game). He is a comedian who comes from a school of Japanese comedy where hilarious hijinks and costuming are considered the wisest possible PR strategy. Let’s not forget about Hard Gay. But, it’s become apparent that Tekken does have a soft side, and *sniffle* is not above ruining me for other emotional endeavors on a weekday.
