untitled okay..

So, uh, hey there. Been a while but whatever. I hope you guys are still around. I'll still write something anyway.

Sit back and enjoy.
I'm going to recommend some shows from this season that I feel have been overlooked or aren't appreciated enough. Now, I don't claim to watch every single show each season but I'm pretty sure I watch way more than the average viewer. I won't list everything. They're shows that I look forward to every week and now that the season is almost over it's a pretty good time to catch up. They're all two cour, after all.

Strike the Blood
This show isn't outstanding or anything but it is fun. Better described as Index with a better Touma, Misaka as main heroine, and all the characters are much more rational that they feel like real people. It subverts tropes and cliches so often that it's become somewhat of a main selling point. If you don't like LN battle shonen then I'm not sure if this will change your mind but I would at least recommend you give it a try. It takes the formula and manages to still be fresh. Also, Kishida Kyoudan OP.

Nagi no Asukara
I'm surprised by how much I'm enjoying this show. Usually these melodramatic love polygons tend to layer the melodrama too thick. There's a good balance between the slice of life, conflict, and romance. It's fun to see what happens next or at least I find it fun. I like the music too and the visuals do look pretty at certain points. Addressing the obvious, the studio behind this is P.A. Works with Mari Okada on series composition. Who knows what kind of shit they're going to pull but so far I really like it.

Samurai Flamenco
A show that has been a hot topic recently due to its plot. Even if you know what I'm talking about, it's still an amazing show. Obviously, you'd appreciate it more if you're a fan of Tokusatsu but I'd still recommend it. Think of it as a parody and homage while still trying to do its own thing. Its got my seal of approval as one of the best shows this season. Go watch it now if you haven't!

So there you have it. I'll try to get back into the swing of things but no promises. For now I leave you with a really useful video. Even more useful if you played Skyrim.

The time has come to write another blog post. Also, every blog post needs this stupid preface so that I can get into the groove of writing one.

I guess I'll talk about some anime that's airing this season. Just the more notable ones though. Actually, this season seems like it's filled with plenty of high profile shows.

Don't mind me, just posting best oreimo.
She only wants what's best for you.

This season is pretty great, although I think every season is great. New Oreimo, new Railgun, MgMaou-sama, mecha show about alignment sugar coating, guilty geass seed destiny r2 vampire edition, and frodo of the really big dudes. Of course, that's not all I'm watching but these are just a few.

"My waifu can beat up your'e waifu!"
"Eww, get off me!" 

I'm enjoying Valvrave in the sense that it's so bad that it's good. I'm waiting for the inevitable shitstorm that will come. It's going to happen, I just know it!

I was really enjoying Gargantia until ep. 3. Just kinda felt like the writing took a nosedive but it felt more like filler just to get to the slice of life parts that will come. The mecha designs look really shitty but that's not really what the show's about though.

Umm, I guess that's it. I've been playing different video games on and off but I can't manage to stick to one. I'm hoping I'll actually complete one soon.

I can't think of a post name, so uhh....

Yes, I know. It's been more than a month since my last post but whatever. I blog for my own self-satisfaction. Deal with it.

Even though there's absolutely no benefit to running this silly little blog in the first place, I'm still going to write something. Actually, I have no idea what to talk about since I'm unprepared for this post. I'll just wing it like I always do.

Do you even pose?
In the end, I'll resort to talking about anime and video games. GJ-bu has certainly surprised me, quickly becoming one of my favorites this season. I look forward to it every week! Funny and quirky, aware of what it is and becoming pure fun because of it.

There's also this new thing called hair brushing. Watch as the MC performs it on Megumi.

Don't forget the maid, Mori-san!

Apparently, the MC is quite skilled at it.

Seems like being in the Good Job Club is very interesting.

Don't even think I'm done talking about anime yet! The other show I look forward to every week is Minami-ke Tadaima. There's kind of a split on whether Seasons 2 and 3 were bad. I personally liked them a lot. Ignored Millhouse. But this new season is shaping up to be better than the first. How is that even possible? Well it is! It seems to focus a bit more on the side characters at times but that's not a bad thing at all.

Hosaka will never invite you to a barbecue. ;_;

Hair down Kana is the best.

Sensei and Ninomya-kun are back as well.

Just as keikaku.
Moving on to video games. I finally got Skyrim around New Year's holiday. Right away, I had to mod it to hell and back since the game is kinda crap without them. So many bugs and glitches. I shouldn't have to do this in the first place. The game itself was cool, I guess. I really enjoyed the environments and some of the game mechanics. The quests were all fucking boring. Action packed would really describe this game well. Like they were trying to appeal to a certain mainstream audience so they chucked in action and "epicness" everywhere. Felt like non-combat stealth players were given the middle finger. The thieves guild was okay but by that point I didn't really care. Skyrim's main draw for me was walking around and soaking in the atmosphere. Overall, It's an alright game, I guess.  I gave it a good 80~ hours of gameplay without playing any of the expansions.

For some reason I had the urge to play Dark Souls again so I popped it back in. I stopped playing because I got stuck at a boss but I'm gonna give it another shot. I'll try my best to actually beat the damn game this time. Speaking of which, I didn't even beat a single game last year. That kinda bothers me. Oh well, can't be helped.

Time to take it easy.
