What a Bizarre Adventure Pt. 1

As I am writing this, I have literally just finished reading the first part of JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken or JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. If you haven’t heard of the is story, it follows different generations of this family known as the Joestars, and everyone’s name begins with Jo. This first part is known as Phantom Blood, and it starts all of the craziness that this family must undergo. It has a maniacal villain with obviously flawed plans, but you continue your love-hate relationship with him anyways. This part and short and sweet with only five volumes. It’s a quick read, but enjoyable the entire way through. I think you will love it too.

I’ll be reviewing every part of this series, so still around to see how I feel about every generation that we follow.

The Law of Equivaleinet Exchange

I feel like this is an amazing-ish title to go along with such an outstanding manga. I recently finished the manga Fullmetal Alchemist. If you want to read my review of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, click here. The manga, let me tell you, was so much better. I pushed through until the very end. I even neglected doing homework so that I could finish reading it. I felt the intensity of the last arc, same as I did when watching the anime. This manga also makes me even more scared of watching the original FMA anime. I’ve been told by some people that the changes don’t make any sense and that overall it is bad, but I was also told that the feelings are more intense. I’m going to wait a bit longer before watching that one, so that I forget some of what happened so that I can judge it as its own thing.

Not Your Typical Vampire Pt. 2

Before reading this, you might want to read the previous one I wrote for the Vampire for Hire series or better yet read the book. There’s bound to be spoilers if you. If you had already read the book, or want the spoilers, proceed ahead. If not, you’ve been warned.

How Does It Hold Up: Numb3rs

Since I have recently been taken over by nostalgia, and the fact that Hulu has a bunch of shows that I have always wanted to watch in order, I’ve decided to start this new “series” so to say. For this, I will be watching this that I loved when I was younger or older shows that I come across to see if they still hold up to my current interests.

For this first one, I will be looking that the show Numb3rs. This is the show that truly got me into math and the procedural cop show realm. It answers that age-old question that every student has in math: When am I ever going to use this in the real world. This show follows an FBI agent and his mathematician brother as they solve crimes together. What I loved about it was that it explained advance mathematical and logic-based concepts and dumbed it down so that everyone can understand. Now as a college student, I understood some of the topics just from being in class. Because of this, I see that it wasn’t too dumbed down. It didn’t feel like the mathematician was speaking down to me. The explanations are at an adult understanding, but also for those that may not have a complete grasp of the topic or for those that just need a refresher. I loved rewatching again and can still safely say that this will continue to be one of my favorite shows for years to come. I do wish that there were more seasons, but I am happy to say that it didn’t fall into the pit that other procedurals fall into; the one where the show goes on forever and gets really stupid. I’m happy to say that this show died well.

Aside

Hey, Guys. I’ve started a new website. It’s going to be more of the typical blog where I describe everything that is going on in my life instead of inserting it here. It’s called Drabble’s Diary. Check it out; there are already a couple of posts there.

Heart of Metal

I’ve finally finished it. If anyone has been keeping up with my MAL account, you would have noticed that it took me forever to finish Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I’ve been watching it with one of my friends, and I was not allowed to watch any of it without her. For my birthday, I binged through the last 16 episodes of it. All of it was amazing. I was not expecting it because I lead towards shoujos and my friends who practically hate shoujos love it. All I can say is that I might start trusting them with anime suggestions. It is now another anime on the short list of animes that I suggest watching dubbed. I know that at this point, everyone and their mother has seen this anime, but I feel like I should emphasize how good it is from someone like me. IT WAS AMAZING. Now the question is should I watch the original. I’ve been told that towards the end it is disappointing, but the emotions going into it are a lot more present. Should I? I need to know. Please tell me.
