  1. Okay so I am finally caught up. I have to say I'm quite intrigued to see Akito is gonna fair when all this cat and mouse game backfires in her face. As I listened to her dialog and they shot the complete opposite of the things she was saying was very amusing to say the least. I really don't know the angle the others are trying to get here I guess we won't know for some time what the end game will be. But I very much think Tohru will come out on top.
  2. So I like to take the time to talk about reading manga/comics. This entry isn't so much about something specific I am currently reading but more about reading apps on my phone. I'll be quite honest I have a few (10 to be exact). That might be excessive or for some not enough. I started with one from an ad on facebook or instagram not sure and it spiraled out. I will divulge i mostly read romance and bl on the sites. I have the following: webcomics, mangatoon, tapas, patreon, torycomics, tappytoon, manga renta, webtoon, coolmic(XXX), webnovel(not a good one but i can't find the comic im currently reading anywhere else). Webcomics, mangatoon have a point system along with buying coins to read. Some comics need money to read I'll be honest but the free coins do help Patreon is really good if you want to help artist in my opinion by directly funding and in doing so you do get perks. Also to can also read uncensored versions. My 3 favorites though thus far are tapas, tappytoon, and webtoon all are which are paying types. Though I have to say its worth it especially tappytoon. The stories and graphics are on point. There really isn't bad translations that you get from other sites. They don't have a big collection but what they do have is great well in my opinion. One of my favorites on Tappytoon is Light and Shadow was such a good story so much I would really love a hard copy. The Knight and Her Emperor is also quite excellent. That's all I have to say for now. As I am intrupted by a nasty thunderstorm so I'm going to get going if you have any questions about today's blog please feel free to ask. The pics attached are screen shots of app icons on my phone, the 2 in the middle are tappytoon, and the last one is webtoon
  3. So have a ton more i need to add to this list at some point i got tired of searching everything that I have watched before to add to it. lol I haven't updated maybe I will soon but right now this is what it is. https://www.anime-planet.com/users/Geminigal53084/anime/watched
  4. Soooo been having trouble finding something to watch while i wait for new episodes of current running anime I am watching. I realized that once upon a time I was not that picky about watching shows cause i was fairly new to anime. But not that i watched quite a few in a short period of time in my opinion i have become picky. I think it depends on my mood also.  Anyways i have been wanting to watch fate/stay series for some time. So after careful research on the best way to watch the series. I have started. Yay!!! (Cue the clapping) okay that was dumb sorry. I have started with Unlimited Blade Works. I am very pleased so far. An engaging story line from the beginning with interesting characters and action from the get go. Also the first 2 eps telling from 2 different persecutions was awesome. That's so good story telling in my opinion. Anyways that's all. Sorry for the long status update.

      UBW as well as the original Fate Stay Night has been on my plan to watch list for far too long. I watched Fate Zero last year & it was epic. But then for whatever reason decided to go with Lord El Mellio & the FGO series instead and have been disappointed. Was also planning to finally watch FSN with the reduced roster this season but got into Inuyasha instead since there’s talk of an upcoming sequel series. I should really be pickier about what I watch given the size of my backlog. But there were a couple shows this season that though they’re usually just alright had really good episodes the past couple weeks.  Lot’s of series have potential, but not always easy to tell if it’ll be realized.

      Sorry for the long response :P

      @Ohiotaku I have 2 different sites I usually watch on and lets say my list that just keeps on growing so I get ya. 

  5. I listen on Pandora a lot and my shuffle playlist is crazy. I mostly listen to rock music (spans all over the place in the rock world), Kpop, and Jrock. I've been listening to a lot of Halestorm again.
  6. Just wondering what everyone was up to? What are you reading are watching at this moment? 

  7. @Nono, @Seshi Just wondering if ya'll had a chance to peek at this show. I'd really like to know if you liked it or hated it?. Thanks again for reading.
  8. So I have a few ideas for blog entries to come just made an edit to the last blog entry. Apparently I babble a lot but who cares I certainly don't. Feels good to get those thoughts out of my head so mostly I can sleep at night.  Also if you look at post times you will see I should be sleeping right now but I can't cause my mind won't shut off. UGH. 

    So let's see in no particular order my list of topics for my blog are:

    Carol and Tuesday mostly focused on second season cause I felt it was way more impactful than first season

    ID: Invaded 

    Cop Craft

    Arte

    Listners - I'm really enjoying this one

    Some manga/comic apps I use

    Well that's it for right now anyways. 😁

  9. @efaardvark You brought something that I forgot to mention that was left out about the Gate so I will have to edit and put it in though some it of is a bit of a spoiler.
  10. So I was getting really bored sitting around waiting for new episodes of the current shows I am watching and now most are on delay it seems. UGH. So I decided to go back and watch something I hadn't finished watching and since it had been a little while since I last watched it I started it from the beginning. I think the whole reason I had stopped watching in the first place was because when I first came out there was some kind of break in the show and as I was waiting most likely started watching other things and then at some point totally forgot about it. Now that is not saying it isn't a good show because as it turns out I quite liked this anime. However I will say after finishing it this time there are so many holes in this thing. I ended up not being about to sleep last night cause it got me thinking about all kinds of things and what I wanted to write in this blog. So dumb!! ATTENTION MAY BE SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!! Gate: Thus the Japanese Self-Defense Force Fought There A 24 episode first season though if you look it up it might refer to the later half of the series as season 2 because like I mentioned before there was a short break before it started back up. I recently read though that another season was in the works which makes me feel better because hopefully some of the holes that I found might be metaphorically filled. Like the title refers you guessed it a Gate appears more like mysterious tunnel in the middle you guessed it again Japan. Those that came through the gate were super dumb and started killing people. The hero of the show Itami well he is my type of guy lol. He is a giant Otaku (yay!!!) but apparently is part of JSF and later you'll find a damn good solider though he also makes the excuse his job is just to fund his main passion of being an Otaku. You learn a lot of amazing things about him that his fellow soldiers find crazy and unbelievable cause he is super lazy really. Which is just hilarious and it's kind of like me I feel. After saving many lives during the invasion he gets prompted and soon finds himself on a team that would head through the gate to take the fight to them and secure the gate so something like this doesn't happen again. The people and empire on the other side never had a chance with our advance weaponry. They are stuck in a more Roman era with bows, swords, and shields. After establashing themselves and pretty much slaughtering everyone this is where the fun and story really begins. Magic girls, animal girls, one or two demi gods, and some elves what more could you ask for. Oh how about a few rounds with a fire breathing dragon. Poor Itami ends of with a little bit of a harem. As they try to reach some peace talks with the kingdom in this other realm other forrces move from both sides. Apprently other nations other than Japan want to get there hands on the girls when them come back for a visit/military/public inquiry of sorts. That was a fun episode. Then there is King he is a big jerk, the Princess is really the one who lends her hands to peace talks. There are 2 Princes' one who is a totally idiot and sadistic freak which you get to see in an episode. nice silhouette action (XXX). The other prince is more thoughtful though we really don't get to see to much of him. So maybe next season we will see more from him. Idiot Prince some how comes into power and a little struggle happens but ultimately JSF gets the upperhand. So at the end of the season kind of wraps up nicely with a few couples forming (lol) but there are too many holes in the story that really make me want another season to resolve the issues. Also I will say the story travels quick but nicely, all the characters that come into play are nice but there were a few I wanted to know about them I guess cause they were so lovable. Mainly Itami's group. He ends up with a small unit under him and they pretty cool. Okay second Prince barely sees any screen time and then disappears and leaves his sister to fend for herself, not that she is week she sorta made herself into a knight and started her own group under a rose banner. So she can fight but she is a bit naive really. Here are some of my issues with the show. Now I am not military expert but they base the military a little too much like the American military in my opinion seems just odd. Playing TAPS and stuff and the way they operated seemed to similar. I only say this because I served myself. I don't think JSF would operate in the same manner. But like I said it is just my opinion. *EDIT* I forgot about the issue of the actual Gate. Okay so in a later episode they go to a Mage city were Lelei who is a magical user is trying to become a master that's really side note. Anyway when they go the talk with the Grand Master and apparently Rory had given her homework. Basically to find out about the gate. The grand master begins to tell why there are some many different races there and well the turns out the gate has been opening and closing for a long time and each time it opened a new race would come through. Which one makes sense as to why the Empire showed up in the first place because they already knew it was going to open and and some point before the gate actual appears the boundaries had already blurred and they kidnapped a few Japanese citizens. So I bring this because they talk about and then it's almost like no one cares that the gate might close. Struck me quite odd that there was no emergency of telling superiors about this. Like I don't know how long the gate is suppose to stay open for. It's really not discussed at all. So I find that bit of info alarming cause I'm like you guys might get stuck there I don't know. Anyways this was the other thing that really bothered me about this show. With all that I still really enjoyed the show.
  11. So I couldn't sleep last night because as I was about to fall asleep I started thinking about the anime I finished earlier in the day and what I might write in the blog. It was so crazy I couldn't get my mind to shut off. I should have just gotten up and wrote but I wanted to sleep so bad.  So sometime around 6 am I finally fell asleep and woke up around noon I think. I still feel so tired  but I don't want to sleep cause then I really won't be able to rest tonight.  😒

      Black Butler, Made in Abyss, Mononoke, Claymore, & Fire Force are some good ones. Hope you find something to watch :) Oh & you might also check out Gleipnir(it's new & only has 3 episodes so far but it has a bit of a Tokyo Ghoul feel in some aspects & a LOT of sexual innuendo, just fair warning).

  13. The first 2 episodes are out on crunchyroll. It was much anticipated new adaption of the comic. I was a little worried with anything that gets too much hype and I did not want to be disappointed. However I was surprised at how good it was. First I wanted for the first time to look at reviews just too see sometimes when I see reviews are reaction clips they are a little overboard in my opinion but it was pretty decently accurate. Okay Let's get down to it. First episode starts off with the beginning of how and little of why they each entered the tower which was a little vague but later on when Bam (main character) flashes back to his past you get the sense of the story and what Rachel (vague second main character) means to him. The op was freaking excellent montage sequence and fantastic song by Stray Kids (kpop group) also the ending song is by them. It gives off a good raw emotional feel to it. The sound effects/soundtrack during the show is really good also. Like they have this music playing while Bam is running in this cave and it had like kinda creepy music playing in the background that gave it this really chilling effect like you were there too. It was cool. I felt the art style of the show is a bit choppy but honestly I think it compliments the feel of the anime in way. There are already so many interesting and intriguing characters. Oddly enough one of the side characters become my favorite Evan. He is freaking hilarious. He has kind of a dumb demeanor but he is smart and provides various comic relief. Though this anime is a bit action, adventure, drama feel and has some really funny comedic parts that keep it from kinda of tipping over the too serious point. So I think there is quite a balance that I feel is rarely seen in anime. Also the character Lero Ro in ep 2 is voiced by Kenjroo Tsuda I love that mans voice. This fantasia of sorts would be a good way to describe the journey so far. This is definitely a must watch anime.!!! Down the rabbit hole we go!
  14. Ok about to check out Tower of God. There are 2 episodes on crunchyroll I can watch. Then I will report back on what I think about it thus far.
