  1. I adore that Rob Thomas quote by the way. So true. 

  2. Just started watching Soul Eater & I am completely in love with it! ❤️

      This animation style is just so cool to me. Once I get my book written, I may need to think seriously about reaching out to the creators & seeing what they think about turning it into an anime. That would be too epic!

      I think you’re gonna LOVE Stein 😁

      (it’s an AMV so minimal spoilers)

    4. RuthisianCodex


      Yep, I think you are right.

  3. Wow...Season 2 of Fire Force is not messing around! The animation in the 2nd episode is phenomenal & I really like Arthur's character now because finally they've given a bit of an explanation for his delusions. That dude has honestly been through it. Gotta love characters with tragic backstories that go on to totally kick ass later! :)

      I love the series visual style & the animation quality of the fights. Likewise the overall story.What I have a problem with is the humor can be cringey at times. I was actually fine with last week’s episode that made me laugh a lot. But when they try to incorporate elements like the old dude’s masochism or Tamaki’s “Lucky Lecher Lure” (gawd, just typing it makes me cringe) into otherwise badass fight sequences it shoots itself in the foot IMO

      Masochism Shield...*bursts into immature giggles* 

    3. Ohayotaku


      Ok, I’ll admit I did like how Arthur reimagined his allies (reminded me a bit of the one MHA ending)

  4. I'm curious...who is your favorite My Hero Academia student & who is your favorite teacher? My favorite teacher is Eraserhead because...Eraserhead & my favorite student is a toss up between Todoroki & Tokoyami because I can't decide what would be more badass: being able to manipulate fire & ice at the same time or having some wicked shadow come out of my back & mess somebody up lol!

      I forgot practically everything about anime because i have not watched it in so long, but my favorite student is Bakugou (i could never forget him) and i'm not sure about teachers, i never really paid attention to them 

  5. I just realized that you have a Sonic stage as your banner. Nice!

  6. COVID numbers in my area are rising so the panic shopping has begun again. Oh good grief, here we go...

  7. I really like your banner :) 

  8. Just finished Gleipnir & wow, that was some ending. I can't wait to find out exactly what the Hell is up with Elena. 

  9. Jerry Jenkins is an author that I've been looking up some information on lately & I found something that may be of interest to other aspiring authors here. This is a link to some free to enter creative writing contests: 


    I think I'm going to enter a few while I work on my novel, as well as join a few different online writing communities. Story telling is an art form and I'm looking forward to improving my style. 

  10. Oh, hey there Fire Force Banner Buddy! 🔥

  11. Just watched the first episode of Fire Force Season 2 & WOW! I'm really looking forward to the rest of this season. My only gripe is the music. It isn't as good as last season. Also, for anyone who is a huge fan of the Captain of the 7th Benimaru, there is a photo of him in this episode that almost made me spill my tea! Love him! ❤️ 🔥

      It definitely started things off right. Re-introduced a lot of the characters without resorting to a recap episode. Only fair that the fanservice was designed for the ladies for a change & at least they made it humorous for the guys “Power! Cobra!” 🤣
      I like the new OP & ED but it’s definitely more generically shonen than last season.

      So I actually started reading this first before they announce the anime so I can't watch it. I have like this thing where if I'm reading I can't watch it and vice versa until it finishes. I'm weird I know.

  12. This is neat:

      Looks so simple & yummy :)

      My issue with baking or broiling anything with cheese on top is that I'm always concerned about leaving it in for too long. 

  13. I've got the 1st few pages of my book done & am now going back to edit & revise before moving on. I've started watching lots of tutorials on creative writing & seminars given by some of my favorite authors like Stephen King to get information on some of the major elements of good writing i.e. character design, tone, grammar, where do they get their inspiration from, etc. Right off the bat I know that one of my weak points is describing the scene. I do excellent with people but if I want the story to be more engaging then I have to improve on how I write about where things are taking place. I'm learning a lot & am slowing incorporating these techniques into The Ruthisian Codex. If this turns out to be the only book I ever write, I want to be able to look back & know that I gave it everything I had. 

  14. Just finished the 1st paragraph of my book & my stomach is already in knots. My goodness, I wonder if this ever happens to Stephen King...

    1. RuthisianCodex


      I got the 1st page done & I'm pretty satisfied with it. I've decided that I'm going to save each of the 10 chapters in separate files because I feel that will make editing easier. This is so exciting! 

    2. Nyxnine


      Super exciting. I wish you luck with your book :D 

      I hope to find it on shelves one day ^^

  15. I'm thoroughly enjoying how messed up Monster is. Also, I've actually been able to get some progress made on my book. Spending the next few weeks designing the characters & may even get the intro written. Outlining is going to be huge for me because I've changed some of my original ideas for my lead character so I've got to keep them written down or I'll never keep all this straight. I've decided to add some Ancient Egyptian deities as well & am enjoying mixing in some of the lesser known gods & goddesses & deciding what roles they will play. 

  16. Nice, another Samurai Jack fan :) 

  17. Lemon pepper broiled shrimp that I made for dinner: 


  18. Decided to go with baked jumbo shrimp scampi tonight instead & my kitchen smells amazing! 

  19. Haven't used my wok in a while. Might have to make some jumbo shrimp stir fry for dinner this evening. 

  20. Just watched the 1st episode of Finding Paradisio & it's pretty good so far. Hana is going to be my favorite I can tell already :) 

    1. OtakuKid


      Sounds cool. What’s it about?

  21. I'm liking Ghost Hound so far. The opening song is great & the show starts off with this unsettling feeling that I can get into.

      Is it just me or does the animation look very... not smooth? You can kinda see everything moving, like they didn’t put quite enough frames. Maybe it’s just the intro...

    3. Ohayotaku


      The video I put up is a fan made AMV, so understandable that it’s not the best quality. I posted it for the audio, not the video.

    4. OtakuKid


      Oh. I’m not saying I don’t like it!

  22. Just finished Gosick. What a great ending! 

  23. New Resident Evil 8 trailer = YES!!!


  24. Your banner is awesome! :) 

    1. RuthisianCodex


      I also noticed that some of your favorite anime are mine as well. Nice.
