Recently Watched Movies

This week I watched a few movies, one by myself and the others with my parents. I added the trackt.tv link to each of them.

Steven Universe: The Movie (Link)

So, Steven Universe was trending on Twitter, and I discovered it was because there was a new season. And there was also a movie I didn’t see? Talk about being not informed.

The Zookeper’s Wife (Link)

Video about a Zoo in Warsaw, Poland, that helped jews escape the nazis. Great movie!

Coffee & Kareem (Link)

Comedy movie, a kid that swears a lot. It’s funny, if you want something easy to watch. Nothing memorable though.

The Hustle (Link)

Anne Hathaway! That’s all I needed to know, haha. Decent.

John Wick: Chapter 2 (link)

Even though my parents didn’t watch the first movie, they still watched chapter 2 with me, which was awesome. I’m psyched for chapter 3 now :)

First Impressions: Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro

This anime was not originally on my watchlist, but in the end I decided to give it a chance.

The “dramatic extreme going to school comedy” manga follows the titular female high school student Chio Miyamo, and her adventures to commute to school every day. Chio runs in to problems both big and small, such as construction, a biker gang, a sudden urge to use the bathroom, and more.

The premise is very simple: Chio is a student who always has many obstacles when trying to get to school in time. It’s not much, really, but I guess for a comedy anime might be enough, or not.

At the first episode, we see two different occasions where Chio is having trouble trying to get to class in time, and how she reacts and what she does to try and arrive in time. So far both the situations and her reactions and plans were funny and made up for a good episode, although not comedy gold.

The animation, art style and voice are also good and fit the style of the anime very well.

While I had fun during the first episode, I’m still not sure if the title will be able to step up its comedy, and I fear that the novelty might wear off halfway through the season. But only time will tell. I had fun, but this title is not going to be a priority on my watchlist, and I suspect it’ll end up on my on hold list after a couple more episodes.

You can check for more information about it on Anilist. You can also follow me there!

Waiting on Wednesday (May 16)

I have to admit, this is a guilty-pleasure style Waiting on Wednesday. This time, a light novel that recently had an anime adaptation: A Sister’s All You Need, by Yomi Hirasaka (Author) and Kantoku (Artist). The Japanese title is Imouto sae Ireba Ii. I still don’t have watched the anime yet, as I’m waiting for a BD release, but I usually enjoy stories about authors, artists or about people in the anime industry, so I guess this one is for me :)

As always, you can buy or check more info on Amazon.

Itsuki Hashima is a novelist who’s hopelessly enamored with the idea of little sisters and is constantly surrounded by colorful characters. A world class genius and love-guru who’s beauty almost seems a waste on her. A girl who’s constantly troubled by her friendships, love interests, and can’t even find refuge in her dreams. A ridiculously talented illustrator. Each of them have as many problems and worries as the next and they never have a dull day together as they play games, travel, and work together. From the same author of the famous I Don’t Have Many Friends, Yomi Hirasaka!
