If you want a borning anime to watch (and I honestly don’t know what you would), there is Kokkoku or Moment by Moment. And by boring, I truly mean boring. The first episode set up the premise pretty well, but after that, it went downhill pretty quickly. For episodes on end, the characters would just be walking around. And having tiny bouts of dialogue, but that would be it. When they would try to world build, it would often be the same person explaining something that they already explained before in the exact same way. Also, their reasoning would be one of the stupidest things ever. Trust me. When the “villain” finally explains why he is doing what he is doing, it is a literal facepalm. The whys and hows just never make any sense.
In the cute little anime known as Gugure! Kokkuri-san, the fox god known as Kokkuri-san helps raise Kohina, a girl who believes that she is a doll. It has an amazing cast of characters that are hilarious and heart-warming at the same time. With a supernatural and slightly creepy twist of a family drama, this family has to get through day-to-day without accidentally ending the world. Maybe not end the world but definitely trying to kill each other. They kinda fail at that one quite a bit. It’s a cute little show for a shounen (It makes sense as to why it’s a shounen after a bit.). Have a mentioned how amazing the characters are by the way. Their interactions with each other are the best.
A show that I watch kinda sporadically was Flashpoint. Well, good news. I have actually watched the entire show from start to finish, finally. It is an action packed thriller that is a combination of a S.W.A.T. team and Criminal Minds. I can’t say it’s like the show S.W.A.T., because I have not seen it yet. But this show was action and drama is intensive and nerve-wracking. There are times when you cannot tell that it will go well for the protagonists. This is a sit on the edge of your seat kind of cop show. Instead of having days to solve a crime like in other shows, in this one, they have a couple of hours, at most, to solve the issue. Sometimes, they don’t even get that. It is fast paced and enjoyable ride from start to finish.
There are many times when you start to read a series, you get to the last update available, and then completely forget about the series until years later when that are about five more updates. This is one of those series. I have recently rediscovered a series known as The Fallen. I’m pretty sure that there are seven books in this series, but I only remember two of said books, so I decided to reread and finish the series.
It was just as good as I remember. It was fast-paced and didn’t waste a single scene. This series surrounds angels and religious symbolism. This means that if you are sensitive to this sort of things in books, this probably isn’t the series for you. But if you are okay with this sort of thing, I’m confident that you will enjoy this book. The protagonist relatable and well written. He sticks to his guns unlike many other characters in a similar situation as he. He is also a fighter. He is a genuinely a good character that you want to succeed.
I’ll be writing reviews for this series similar to how I am writing reviews for the Vampire for Hire series. Hopefully, that is an easy format to follow.
I think everyone had the point in life where they can’t understand the appeal of HGTV. I am officially past that point. Recently, I discovered that Hulu put Fixer Upper on its streaming service. Unfortunately, it is only three seasons, but I hoping that they add more later on. This is one of my favorite renovation shows on HGTV. Instead of doing something else for this blog, I’ve been binge watching these first three seasons. I’m a bit behind on my schedule, but I think it is worth it for the chemistry. Chip and Jo are one of the cutest couples that I have ever seen, and their kids are just so adorable. They should not be allowed to be that cute. It should be against the law. I’m a bit sad that they canceled the show, especially since they got pregnant again. I really want to see the new baby, but at least I know that they are doing well and are happy. But I can still hope that they bring the show back when the baby is older.
Most recently, I have been rewatching Bones. It is one of my favorite procedural shows because of its application of forensic science. I absolutely loved it because it showed science and a real-world application for it. Not only that, but I scientist all had different personalities. I have seen other shows were characters that fall into a certain type all have the same personality. I decided to rewatch this show because I stopped watching the shows a few years before it went off the air. If I am remembering correctly, I stopped watching because I hated a plot line to the story was going down. I’ve seen some promos from after that point where it seemed like to show was getting on a better track before the show ended. The review for right now is on the first half of the show or pre-pregnancy as I like to call it. The first six seasons held some of my favorite episodes. There were some cringe-worthy moments, but I embraced every single one of them. It felt really good to be a part of the squint squad again. I felt every heartbreak and every cry of rejoicing as if I had watched it for the first time. I can definitely see myself watching these six seasons over and over again.
