  1. Not anime related but started watching a cool netflix original show called Warrior Nun. 

    Also started Akame Ga Kill. The ending of the first episode definitely f-ed up. But i thought he did good killing that psychopath. 

  2. OMG I totally got sucked into this awesome comic on Tappytoon. I don't usually read to many action adventure types. I mean i do watch them in anime. But i don't read to many. It's called Solo Leveling. It's so sic. Just keeps getting interesting. If you can find somewhere read it!!! I can't give anything away it's to badass too.

      I’ve heard a number of people bragging on it & saying it needs an anime adaption. 

    2. txGemgal3084


      @Ohiotaku I totally agree it would be so awesome as an anime.  

  3. Just finished watching the new episode of Fruits Basket.  That got intense but I think Akito's role got him twisted cause a god doesn't bind/chain them down he keeps an eye out and if they misbehave reins them in. Akito's rule is totally dictatorship which sooner or later someone will break the chains and start a revolt. Tohru is like the catalyst to awaking the rest to see hope at the end of the tunnel instead of dark hole.

  4. After searching and searching for something to watch I ended up on Kiznaiver. A psychological adventure is how i would put it. Very trippy don't do drugs and watch this that's a bad combo. And as such you really have to pay attention to everything. It's got that old alice and wonderland meets new alice in wonderland feel.

  5. 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. 

  6. Just wondering what everyone was up to? What are you reading are watching at this moment? 

    1. RuthisianCodex


      Right now I'm reading Stephen King's The Outsider. It's about this little boy who gets brutally murdered & the cops are sure they have the person who did it in custody but then supernatural chaos starts going down(because of course it would) and soon everyone is questioning just what the hell is going on. I have no idea why I read these types of books at night or right before bed but I've made sure all the windows & doors are locked & checked all the closets & every inch of my bedroom so I should be fine. I hope...

    2. txGemgal3084


      @RuthisianCodex awesome can't read it though I have vivid crazy supernatural dreams already so scary movies and reading is out for me but my sister loves the genera lol

    3. RuthisianCodex


      As weird as this might sound, I have vivid nightmares as well but somehow Stephen King novels help me manage negative emotions because it gives me a place to channel them, if that makes any sense. I try not to bury my emotions, as that just tends to create chaos later, so instead I opt to give them a place to run wild which in this case is in one of Stephen King's books. It really helps me. 

  7. 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


    Listners - I'm really enjoying this one

    Some manga/comic apps I use

    Well that's it for right now anyways. 😁

  8. 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.  😒

    1. Ohiotaku


      Had the same issue myself the past couple nights. Not able to fall asleep till about 2 am, but having to wake up for work by 7.  Glad it’s finally the weekend.

  9. I NEED SOMETHING TO WATCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Throw out your suggestion anybody whatever it is let me know. I'm soooo bored and I wanna watch something!!

    1. Show previous comments  2 more
    2. txGemgal3084


      @Ohiotaku thanks the only one I haven't watched is Baccano I'll give it a try.

    3. Ohiotaku


      It’s by the same guy as Durarara. Let us know what you think of it.

    4. RuthisianCodex


      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).

  10. 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. 

  11. So I totally couldn't fall asleep last night and now I am extremely tired but i still feel a bit restless and my mind is just going so I guess I'll drink some coffee and figure something out to do. I started watching Brave 10 last night. Well I watched the first 2 episodes like awhile ago I kinda remember how it started but thought I should just start it over.  I feel like the priestess character is a little overly clingy for me but I was digging it. probably finish watching it today cause I don't have anything better to do right now. 

    1. txGemgal3084


      So Update im going to go lay down now. lol

    2. Illusion of Terra

      Illusion of Terra

      not sure coffee is the best idea when you're restless? just saying 😂 

    3. txGemgal3084


      @Illusion of Terra For sure don't worry I didn't drink any

  12. Hey all you crazies,

    I mean that's what we are all feeling probably. Most places being on lock down everything feels so topsy turvy. Anyways I'm doing well despite being out of work like so many others. I've been studying my Japanese since I have so much time on my hands. Also crafting, reading, watching anime, sleeping a lot, eating and drinking alcohol seems like the thing to do. Just kidding not drinking that much. Mostly being a couch potato. I haven't posted a blog in while so I need to get on that ASAP (sorry btw).  I forgot was going talk about some stuff but I guess I'll just put it into my blog. 

  13. So I hope that everyone out there is doing okay or the best they can be. I'm out of work right now sucks but what can I do about that but just try to stay positive. I know many might be feeling the same. Recently found my self a bit depressed I think mostly from being stuck inside since most places in the United States shut down. So can't go out to eat or movies or anything like that. There is only so much you can do inside your house before you start going stir crazy.  I decided that if i got to move around like exercise I might feel better and sure enough. So I plugged in my WII and put in some Zumba and after a  few dances and some sweat i feel much better.  So if you find yourself feeling down for what ever reason just doing a little cardio it might help.  

    1. RuthisianCodex


      I hope that you find a new job as soon as possible. I know that doesn't do much for you right now but maybe there is some comfort in knowing that someone is sincerely wishing you well. 

    2. txGemgal3084


      @RuthisianCodex It's just a temp layoff.  My work directly involves schools so as soon as school comes back I can go back to work. Also I really don't think many are gonna hire right now since everyone is suppose to say home and many places are shut down till they say its okay to reopen and resume business. Also thank you I appreciate your words though and I am staying positive. 

    3. Nyxnine


      Hopefully you will be alright until things get back to normal. A few close friends and FAM are in the same situation as you (temp lay off).

      I would go crazy if I just stayed in. My friend started making YouTube videos about how to stay sane during covid. Its comedic and a good thing to help him deal with life right now. Hopefully you'll find other things that happily preoccupy your time :)

  14. So watching Goblin Slayer and there was this really cool freeze 360 moment. Have to say that was pretty cool.

    1. Ohiotaku


      I thought it was a decent series, but got too much attention (both positive & negative). On a side note, the MC’s seiyu is also the MC in Cautious Hero which seemed kinda like satirical casting :P  

  15. HAHAH I found something to watch although I finished earlier and started something else. So I finished Dororo in 3 days I could have done it in one sitting but as a functioning adult i couldn't devote a full day to watching. I started Drifters I must say it's fun and interesting to watch. Lots of characters to follow though.  




    Dororo was excellent but a little disappointed about the ending.. All that time together and they just split and imagery suggest that they may have eventually reunited. Lame I am not asking for some fairy tail ending but I thought they would show a little more of a future for them two. 

    1. Ohiotaku


      Dororo definitely deserves more recognition than it’s gotten IMO.

  16. So I don't know what's going on with me lately. I have a few shows that I am watching right now. mostly new content so I have to wait for the episodes to air first before being shared. Though usually while waiting I'll watch stuff that is a older and has all it's episodes already out. But lately I'm bored almost like nothing is really peaking my interest. On one hand I feel like you can never watch too much but maybe I'm a little burned out or I know what I wanna watch but not finding the exactly thing.  Like when you're hungry craving something but you can't exactly pinpoint or you know what you want but you just don't have it in your fridge or cabinet. *sigh* ahh thanks for letting me vent. *sigh* Hope i figure this out soon.  Any suggestion or comments are welcomed!!

      Illusion of Terra

      I think that's called getting old 😂 

    2. Seshi


      I know the feeling, on both accounts. The fridge incident being extremely disheartening since I love food.

      But with anime, I've found myself to just be more choosy with what I'll watch and can only watch anime if it lines up with my mood at the time. So certain shows get put om hold if I'm not in the proper mindset to watch it. Thats why it took me so long to finish fruits basket, and Flying Witch, even though they are both good shows. Maybe you will find this about yourself too.

      Being a dork is fun

  17. So I have a few reviews i am planing for my blog so be on the lookout. Matane!!

    1. Zila


      Looking forward! 😁

  18. So I wanted to put out there that if anyone wants to talk about anime, manga, or life I am here to listen.  Or if anyone wants to ask me question I'll try and answer.  Sometimes I get bored or lonely and I like to talk with people who like that same things i do. Well irl I don't have anyone I can talk with about these things. So I am thankful I found this cool place to talk and chill.

    1. LonelyPoet


      Hey! I'd love to talk

    2. txGemgal3084


      Hi @LonelyPoet How are are? I don't know what your time zone is  so good morning/afternoon/night.  LOL

  19. Hello everyone,

    It's been a little while since my last post but well I have been busy with work and I was recently sick. Still got a nasty little cough but feeling much better. In my off time I still watch a ton of anime so I thought I'd get on and do my usual blog that I was trying really hard to stay on top of. So sorry I haven't been on for awhile.

    1. Seshi


      I have to say I really enjoy your blogs. I do hope you get back into it. If not, just chatting with us in the forums is still fun. =]

    2. txGemgal3084
  20. Mushi mushi everyone.

    OMG my work got so busy i haven't had time to breath i feel like and the few days i actually have I have had to spend them working doing like a yard sale with the family or one of our crafting events. In way i still worked on my days off. But it's all good. I love my family and I love my work so I am happy.

    So I don't know if I have said before but our family has a small crafting business.  I thought I would attach some work we do just to share.





  21. I am alive...... Hahah

    Not that anyone cares. Hope everyone is doing well.  I just been working, raising my son, watching anime and reading manga. I really don't have much of a life but that's okay with me. Anyway well I'll post soon on my blog on what I have watched later. 


    1. Seshi


      Looking forward to it :)


  22. I've been away too long. Work keeps me extremely busy but I have this week off. So trying to watch everything. Just finished up Free by the way WHY do we have to wait almost 2 years for the next season. It just cuts off right before the match begins WHY *sobs*.  

  23. It's almost the weekend thank goodness been dying to watch all my shoes. Since I haven't watched all week I have plenty to watch. YAY!!!!

  24. So while I'm waiting for the next episode of the current season of anime to come out I returned to Saga of Tanya the Evil. I was getting really into it last night only have 4 more episodes to watch. It shall be interesting how things will end.  

  25. So I just wrote my first blog on the site IDK if will be any good but I wanted to try it. It has my current watch list so if any of you are bored and wanna check it out please do.. I'd appreciate feed back though it might be kinda hard with just one post so far. lol. Okay Thanks again friends
