Ah, the eternal struggle of finding shows that don't have hella embarrassing segments. We feel your pain, Jess.

I'm surprised they didn't go with something new, relatable, and self contained like. Uh. Ahegao and Kase-san. No uh maybe a better choice is Bloop Into You, about a couple of girls trying to put on a chiptune show that may or may not be falling in love while trying to figure out what the music they perform says about themselves

Merry, do you mean all of the muppets? I mean some of the big ones can be kind of scary but still.
 

Rosewood

We knew she'd dive right across the "cool aunty"/"no aunty, no" line eventually. Yeah?

It seems a little lost in translation, but in England offering a kid (Hester is 14) a lemonade shandy is actually quite normal. Not out and about, but in the household it's seen as harmless. Liz here isn't being as irresponsible as it may appear; ymmv on that of course but when I wrote it I was coming from a place of "this is totally acceptable".

How scandalous! I'm sure no one on this forum ever had a drop of alcohol before they turned 21.

(Also Hester has always seemed a bit younger than 14 and I me.)

Younger than 14 would be pushing it to put behind the counter at a fast food restaurant, even for these folks.

I was expecting this heartfelt backstory moment to be taking place with a bathroom door between the two of ‘em.

I sorta assumed Dan was 20 years older than the rest of the cast

His age is a bit nebulous and there's a scene earlyish in the comic that ages him a lot and which I now regret. Might George Lucas it later (I've already George Lucas'd some of the early comics to fix continuity errors, lol)

At present in my head Merry and Liz are 23 and 24 respectively, whereas Jasumati and Dan are 31 and 34. Dan has simply aged poorly but I will be trying to remedy this eventually.
