You Shouldn’t Put Power in My Hands

Recently, I have discovered the mobile game “Balance.” Balance is a blocky puzzle and logic game. The goal is to give cities power. Sounds simple right. Well, it starts that way, then it makes you want to pull your hair out when if has puzzles off the course that make no sense to you. Trust me. I spent all night trying to figure out one of the puzzles, but once you start doing it, it makes sense. Sorta. Small wires can’t handle currents as well as bigger ones, but then the length of the wire also needs to be taken into consideration. It’s very trial and error. I’m still trying to completely finish this game (with all 3 stars), but I would definitely check this out if you can. It is available for Android and iOS.

Also, please recommend more puzzle games that are like Candy Crush. I’m always looking for more that I can waste playing. (Pretty Please)

WARNING: Only Watch in English

Seriously, guys, you have been partially warned in advance. This anime so far is on my list of four animes where the English dub is acceptable to watch for purposes other than making fun of it. But in this case, the original anime is so bad, the original producers told the people who dubbed it to do whatever they wanted. If you haven’t guessed it already, I’m talking about Ghost Stories.

And remember how I said you had been partially warned, well I haven’t told you about what it actually said. Let’s just say, it’s really, really crude. As in, if you get offended at all, this really isn’t for you. Now, I think you have been fully warned.

Strangely enough, once you get past what I was talking about in the previous paragraph, it’s … okay. Just at first the jokes are hilarious, mainly because you aren’t expecting them. But when you hear the jokes, over and over again, because you’re gonna binge watch anime (let’s just face it), it starts to drag on. You get tired of hearing the same jokes being brought up five times an episode, so my suggestion, if you going to watch this, is to not binge watch even though everything in you is telling you to. Just don’t do it. You might enjoy it better. Also, if you get offended in any way, I repeat, DO NOT WATCH THIS. This is your final warning; do not blame me if you continue on. But if you are gonna watch, be prepared for a few jokes that are going to make you pause the episode, so that you hear what’s going on over your loud laughter to only be repeated a couple of times.

Can This Be Considered a Swimming Anime?

I have recently finished Keijo!!!!!!!! and yes the title has that many exclamation points. Seriously. What is Keijo (I refuse to make the many exclamation points again (it’s either one or three!) you may ask. It’s fanservice. … That’s about it. If you have ever played or seen someone play Dead or Alive, it pretty much the game where the girls are hitting each other with their butts, except with more action because of reasons and kinda pervy, also for reasons. I honestly have no clue what demographic this is for or who came up with this, but it’s … good…cheezy…has feelings. What?!? I don’t know, but it is a very binge-watchable show, mostly because at the end of every episode, you’re scratching your head, asking yourself “What the heck just happened?”

Would I recommend it? Should I recommend it?

Maybeee…….

I honestly do not know, but if you are a weirdo, I mean unique, like me, you might enjoy this craziness.

Scrambled Eggs are Sometimes Necessary

Although the title of this post will make sense after you watch Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterunda (boy, I hope I spelled that correctly) or The Anthem of the Heart is an absolutely heart-wrenching watch. It was absolutely beautiful to watch. I watched this movie with some of my friends and we were talking about it for about half an hour about how amazing it was. About our favorite characters, the characters we hated with all of the passion we could muster. Yes, the movie takes a little to get going, but once it goes… Sometime soon, I do want to watch it again, without people’s heads in the way. But always remember scrambled eggs.

I really want to tell you guys more, but I fell like if I say anything, it would be a spoiler. Technically the title is a spoiler, but it doesn’t make any sense unless you get to the point where it actually comes up. Also, don’t read the synopsis on MAL; just trust me on this.

Did I Just Take Acid?

Over the weekend I binged watched )if you can really call how short that was binge watching) Space Patrol Luluco. It was an anime the anime club at my school had watched two episodes of (they’re about 7 to 8 minutes of each), and I really enjoyed it. Why? I have absolutely no clue why. It was an acid trip from beginning to end. And there was a 31-second sequel. (So moving. I was so touched. … JK).

Anyways, it was a cute little show, that somehow tied everything from the very first episode to the 5th season. Seriously. There were 5 seasons, also known as 13 episodes. You know, same difference. It was actually one of the first animes I have seen in more than a month (I don’t know what I was thinking) so it was a short little something to dip my toes into. I think anyone who enjoys thinking to themselves “what the heck was I thinking” will really enjoy this…brilliant…display of color.

Tale So, So Old

Last weekend, I watched the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast and loved it. It might have been the nostalgia on overdrive, but I couldn’t get enough of it. I felt like I was watching the original movie again. I hope I wasn’t annoying people with my singing of all of the songs from the original. The new songs were also fabulous. I’ve been listening to one of them on repeat in between listening to the Moana soundtrack.

Now for some spoilers. (Can they there really be spoilers at this point. Yes. Yes, there are.) I’ll wait.

Alright, since people have left, here are some spoilers. If you haven’t left, that’s your problem.

First, I loved the raging on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. It was beautiful. I also found it hilarious that the entire reveal of the library that was was so ready for was because the Beast was telling Belle that she needed to have better taste in books. I was almost rolling.

Second, I almost cried a couple of times. The thing that got me the most was when the final flower petal dropped and all of the staff-turned-objects became completely inanimate. It was sadder that Toy Story 3. Also, Gaston shooting the beast stilled my heart. Because of how close it had gotten, I was almost crying that it was way to graphic for me, keeping in mind that I can binge watch Criminal Minds and other procedural cop shows. The movie just got to me.

Another scene I just loved was when Belle was about the leave the beast to die in the woods. I know it sounds terrible, but I felt that it showed more of her character, especially since he was hell-bent on returning home. That almost quick thought of just leaving him there was just too perfect for me. Also, afterward, we learn that the Beast is pretty much a little boy in a man’s body. (Be still my heart). Maybe that is why I felt that him getting shot was graphic… And then there was when Belle called the castle home. GAAH!!! I know that was a huge jump in info, but I’m a romantic a heart, ironically enough. I always need my ships to get together in the end.

I’m going to make my final point now: I loved how everything looked. Recently, I’ve been really into looking at architecture, so it, especially the change tickled my fancy.

I know that I loved this film, but I found a funny raging on the film. Click here to watch it. Warning: this is some language, but I was laughing my way through the video. It is done by a critic a watch a lot of and his brother. Hopefully, it doesn’t trigger anyone.

Saving Our Island

Recently, and by recently I mean over Summer Break, I watched Moana. And it was amazing. Disney has been so on point recently, it pains me to think about Disney Channel Original movies. (Those still hurt my heart.) I loved it in a kinda ironic way. It made fun of some tropes while still using those same tropes, aka the Princess trope. That was pure gold to me. If you hadn’t seen it, even though you probably have at this point, go watch it. It might even be close to being on Netflix. The musical numbers were so amazing that I am still listening to the soundtrack, even though one of the songs in the film looked like an Alice and Wonderland LCD trip. (You all know which one I’m talking about.)

But seriously, who ships Moana and Maui? Seriously…why is that ship a thing.

GAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Click here if you want to be blinded.

But seriously, this movie was amazing. Go watch or watch it again. My favorite character, personally, was the chicken. He was just awesome. I even liked it better than Moana sometimes. (Don’t kill me.) I’ve been wanting to paint a watercolor painting. hmm… This might be where that came from.
