Hey up everyone 😀
Well this is my first time doing a monthly update. Normally I’d over-look doing something like this, but thought “hey why not give it a try”. I’ve already got a fair bit going on with this blog. So adding more to it, might be some what of a daft thing to do xDD. But it sure looks fun to try it out – will it be a permanent thing?, who knows :P. So let’s get started.
Guild Wars 2:
At some point last month on one of my post, I said I’d be busy with Guild Wars 2: heart of thorns. Well I was semi accurate. I didn’t get the expac till about 2-3 weeks after it came out. This being due to budget and the delivery times. I am spending time in the game. And it is a lot of fun, doing the meta-events, masteries and other things. I spent two years on the Whiteside Ridge EU server, I had a blast there, now this is going to contradict – but I felt I didn’t belong there. Other reasons compelled me as well. So I felt it was time to move on. So I tried out the NA servers – a much higher tier (ranked) server, than I was on. I lasted only a week on it. The reason was due to my rl friend who also purchased HoT along with me. So I moved back to the EU server; Fissure of Woe, a different one. To help him out. I felt more at home on this one. For the two years that I was on Whiteside, I never joined a squad in WvW. Ever. Came back to the EU, and I joined a squad. Says a lot. Working towards my legendary pre-cursor crafting, been wanting a legendary weapon for a while now.
Revising episodic review & changes to the blog:
If you’ve read this post then you’ll know what I’ve been up to regarding the episodic reviews. Basically I’m revising them. And having a different approach to the way I used write them. Without giving spoilers away. Also, I’ve met my post quota (including this post) for this month. Hence why the slow down. They should resume coming up for next week (hopefully). More like as soon as this infernal chesty cough abates!. Which is what I’m really aiming for. And if you read this little post; it gives out some great tips on managing your blog. You can ignore it.
Now for the main meat of this post. The animes.
Gausen Toshi Asterisks – more commonly known as Asterisks wars. Not much to say, since I’m doing episodic reviews on this. It does gets compared to another anime though.
Beautiful Bones – A corpse is buried under Sakurako’ feet – or just Beautiful bones for short. Again not much to say, since there is episodic reviews going on. I will say this, for a mystery genre. This is really enjoyable. I really love Sakurako, she is just awesome. Serious, but not too series.
Arslan Senki – episodic review, though the progress on it… is slow. Much like the anime.
Overlord – Much like the above.
Dragon ball super: well a nice return to Toriyama’ much loved franchise. The series is pretty much a retelling of the two movies that came out; resurrection f and battle of the gods. The series has progressed on to resurrection f now. Battle of the gods was pretty slow and even dull at times. A nice edition to the series is that SSJ (super saiyan) gets an upgrade. There is NO SSJ4!!! SINCE IT IS NON-CANNON.
Owari no Seraph Nagoya Kenseen-Hen: This post pretty much tells you as to what is going on. The second half is a heck of a lot better than the first half.
Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry: Better known as Cavalry. This is the other anime that Asterisks gets compared to. The most funniest bit is when Ikki takes his shirt off, to try and make things all “equal” when he saw Stella in her under wear.
Noragami Aragoto: I didn’t see the first season, so I came in blind on this one. Have to say, it is damn good. I enjoy watching Yato’ antics. The good thing about this anime is that it doesn’t alienate new comers. It tries to fill in as much back log as it can. Whilst continuing the series.
Kowabon: This anime can be unsettling, especially if you watch it at night / dark. It is a short horror anime. If you can call it that, since they use roto-scoping. However what spoils it a bit or rather takes away the atmosphere, is the end credits.
Stalled / Dropped:
These are the animes that have either been dropped or stalled.
Gundam Iron Blood Orphans: Stalled
Akagami no Shirayukihime: Stalled
Heavy Object: Dropped
Sound! Euphonium: Dropped
Well guys that is it, I don’t want to makes this post any longer than it already is. I understand if you just skimmed read, or skipped certain parts. I don’t blame you for it.
