A post that is actually kinda, sorta not that late? Well, I will be.
I know JoJo will be coming back next January, but I figured I might as well say some things that I want to say about it right now and judge the second part of Stardust Crusaders on its own.
Sorry once more. I feel like I should expand a little on why I have been so bad with making posts lately. I generally read Weekly Shonen on Friday or Saturday and then make a post sometime that weekend.
For the past few weeks, most of my weekends have actually been spent going out and having fun with friends. Heck, I think this is the 2nd weekend in the past month and a half that I have actually spent in my apartment. I want to write posts on weekdays, but I have been coming home quite late and I have been pretty tired in general.
All of that combined with a lack of a proper desk and all around laziness has made me pretty unproductive. Anyway, enough moping around.
Hey guys, sorry once more.
Fortunately, Bleach was the only manga that actually had two chapters this week.
I am so sorry this post is so late and that I didn’t publish anything for nearly a month. Since the previous post, I have started a new job, moved cities and spent almost every weekend having fun with friends (wow, since when have I had a life???).
Anyway, let us go. I won’t bother covering anything in detail, but let’s rant like usual. :P
Halo. This is a very short post. I honestly don’t have much to say.
I guess this post could technically be considered a recommendation, but it is not really a wholehearted one. I say that partly because Kirika isn’t a masterpiece like some other manga I like, but mostly because it is not quite for everyone. That and well, there aren’t that many chapters out right now, so this could sink into total oblivion real soon.
This is worth checking out if you:
- Don’t mind seeing cute girls get coerced into wearing rather revealing clothes.
- Are cool with slightly, unnecessarily convoluted plots.
- Don’t mind that all the girls will naturally gravitate towards the MC (not quite a harem, but close to one).
- Are okay with incredibly strange, bizarre characters (the student council president especially).
I am so sorry this ended up being a post of three, but in my defense, life has been very, very busy. In other news, Robin Williams passed away today. I wish I had seen more of his movies, but I liked what I saw and respected him. May he rest in peace.
I am a bit late in saying this, but this has been a pretty bad week when it comes to loss of innocent life. May the 298 passengers on flight MH-17 and those who died in Gaza (at least 225 civilians thus far, I think) rest in peace.
Anyway, let’s get back to your irregularly scheduled Shonen post.
Ideally, I should make several posts and each one would talk about an anime I finished in decent detail. I tell myself, I will do that every season, but I never do. So, in the interests of time and in the interests of actually getting something out there, I will just concatenate some very short thoughts together into this one post.
Fortunately, I didn’t actually finish many anime, so this shouldn’t be too long. Naturally, since I watched so few shows to completion, it should be quite apparent that I had a positive opinion on most of the following.
