I’m back again (?) #WeeklyUpdates (2)

So this is a Weekly Updates post. With only 2 mote weeks for the semester (and my college program) to end, I’m very busy with assignments. Also, I’ve started doing some alcohol tastings/samplings at the LCBO (government liquor store). But I still managed to read and watch some stuff.

Watched

At the beginning of the week I finished watching Netflix’s Daredevil season 3, and it was TOTALLY AWESOME. I’m very gad I decided to watch it, as I was totally hooked up. Unfortunately, yesterday they announced that a 4th season won’t be happening =/

Today, I finished Violet Evergarden, after a couple months postponing the last 2 episodes. And I also loved it. So beautiful, emotional and touching. It’s not something I say about any anime. I still have to watch the special, and I’ll probably do it tomorrow night.

Reading

I have caught up with We Never Learn, and it’s getting way better than I though. There’s more character development going on, and it’s not only random comedy sketches anymore. Way to go. I hope the anime adaptation that is coming is good!

Also, I have started reading the 5th book on the Keeper of the Lost Cities series: Lodestar. So far it’s being a lot of fun, and I really wish that this series were more popular. It’s a middle-grade fantasy and adventure series with elves, goblins, and many more.

Also, I bought three new light novels on the J-Novel Club sale (eBook versions), all volume 1. Amagi Brilliant Park, Kokoro Connect and Occultic;Nine. And I already read Amagi, and started reading Occultic;Nine last night. I’ll talk about them later, on another post. But so far, it’s interesting to read Yuta’s thoughts on his blog 🙂

“You know what an affiliate blog is, right? There’s no better profession out there for my NEET friends. Basically, the more popular your blog, the more hits you get. And the more people who click on your affiliate links, and the more money you earn.”

And that’s it for now. Below, I’m following Yuta’s teachings on affiliate links, and added Amazon links to all the books I have listed here.

Artemis Fowl Movie Coming! #WaitingOnWednesday

I didn’t know an Artemis Fowl movie was coming, and I’m very happy about that. It’s actually a book series that I already wondered if it was never going to get a cinematic release. I read the first 3 or 4 books years ago, and had A LOT of fun with it.

The downside is that they changed some character’s gender and color, and I wasn’t necessary. Changing a middle-eastern to a black person, or an Asian to black is not going to improve the diversity of the movie, only screw up with some plot points.

 just hope the same that happened to Percy Jackson doesn’t happen here. You can see a discussion about the upcoming movie on this Reddit thread below.


Late post, but here I am. A cool band that I discovered this weekend: The HU.

Outlander (STARZ) Openings #MusicMonday

The new season of Outlander (STARZ) premiered yesterday, and being one of my favorite shows, with a PERFECT OST, I couldn’t help but share all the four seasons’ openings. I love how they adapt the theme song each season to fit where they are and how things are going.

Let’s start with the newest opening from season 4

And now, let’s go from season 1 to 3 and remember all these amazing versions.

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion trailer

I’m SO excited for this. And the best is that we will also get a second season (Sword Oratoria is a spin-off). I had so much fun with the first season, and was even wondering about reading the light novels. But I’ll stick to the animated version I guess.

Fridays Reads + New Books (1)

As the weekend arrives, my reading week is over. That means next Monday I’m back at the college. This week wasn’t as productive as I hoped, but still, I managed to rest and read a little bit. I also got some new books for my Kindle.

Watching Now: The Haunting of Hill House

It’s reading week and for some reason, I don’t feel like watching TV so much. I can’t seem to start any new anime of this season nor watch more of The Seven Deadly Sins or finish Violet Evergarden. There are a lot of things I would like to watch, but I just don’t feel like.
