Atelier: A Refreshing Netflix Original

This time, I went for a Netflix original j-drama, developed by Fuji Television, called Atelier (a.k.a Underwear). Although I’ve watched Japanese and Chinese movies when I was younger, this was my first Asian TV show.

Waiting on Wednesday: I Kill Giants

I didn’t know about this movie (and the  comic book) until this week, when the poster was released. It looks SO GOOD, and after watching the trailer, I can’t help but be excited for it. It was made in Belgium and is set to premiere on March 23, 2018. 

It’s based on a comic book with the same name, and you can buy it on Amazon.

Star vs The Forces of Evil is back!

The second part of season 3 is coming, and I’m so happy, as I caught up with the show last week. And of course, people on Reddit are already coming up with theories based on the titles.

The only downside is that in March I’ll be moving and preparing to start a post-graduation in May, so I think I wont be able to watch the episodes as soon as they air.

February New Light Novel Releases

This month we have 5 new light novel series being released, 4 by Seven Seas, and 1 by J-Novel Club.

Didn’t I Say To Make My Abilities Average In The Next Life?! (Feb. 1)

This one seems to be very interesting, as usually the main character of isekai novels is a guy. I’ll probably be buying it soon.
When gifted student Kurihara Misato dies right after her high school graduation, she meets God and has a peculiar request: to make her abilities average in the next life. But few things–especially wishes–ever go quite as planned. As she navigates her new life as a ten-year-old girl in a magic-filled world, she realizes God has a unique definition of average!Purchase: Amazon

Top 3: Light Novel Translations I Want in English

Official light novel translations are gaining traction, and every month we get a bunch of new releases.
From Yen Press’ to J-Novel Club’s digital only releases, we have plenty of choices about what to start reading.
But of course, we are never happy, as there’s a HUGE amount of titles being published in the Japanese market.
Many of them are adapted into anime and, as we finish watching it, we’re left wanting more, and without knowing the rest of the story.
Below I’ve listed 3 light novels that I want to have a translation.

Life Updates (Jan. 26)

I’m back again to talk about my week.

Books

Still reading Fool Moon (at 54%), but I bought two new books this week: Death Bringer (Skulduggery Pleasant #6) and Neverseen (Keeper of the Lost Cities #4). Also, my sister bought the Ramses collection from a friend, and he came to my house to deliver it.

TV

Catching up with Lucifer,  only 1 episode left, and trying to catch up with Star vs The Forces of Evil. The last episode I watch was S02E29 – Trickstar, leaving another 38 episodes left to watch. But I can do it, I’m sure 🙂

Personal

The only interesting thing I did was cooking Maria-Mole with my wife Sunday, and then going to a friend’s house to play videogames, Cards Against Humanity and have some pizza.

Can’t Start a New Book Series

This year I want to read more, but despite my desire to try new things (for example, science fiction), I decided to try to avoid starting new book series. The reason is simple enough: I’ve started a handful of great series, but didn’t finish many.

Of course, many of them are long series and doesn’t actually need to be finished, like long urban fantasy or cozy mystery series. But still, I want to read more or decide to abandon them. That’s why I’ll be making occasional posts about book series that I need to finish. Stay tuned.

PS: I also have a lot of unfinished TV shows, and I’ll be posting about them too 🙂
