This weekend I did the pre-order for the first volume of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation, the light novel. I have been interested in this series since forever, but the sheer number of volumes, along with the fact that it was a fan-translation, made me never start it.
I did start reading the manga when I was back in Brazil, but for some reason I stopped. Now that we are getting an official English release and that I’m a bit more hooked on light novels, I decided to pre-order it for my Kindle.
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.
