Very recently, I can across a game called The Room because of my weird love of room escape games, except this wasn’t a room escape game. But it was good. You stay in a room and unlock different items to uncover more and more secrets. The puzzles are at a reasonable difficulty if you are not binge-playing close to midnight and are running on fumes. I got the game here apart of Kindle’s Underground (p.s.: things are free here). I don’t know how to find it other than this because I keep getting the horrible movie. But if you want to find this game elsewhere, it was developed by Fireproof Games. But this game is awesome, and make sure the have your headphones in; the music is amazing!
In the world of No Game No Life, life is just that: a game. There is no war and no violence; everything is decided on by games. Also, different races of creatures. Just what the sibling duo called “Blank” likes it. (They’re not in a relationship. I think. … I’m pretty sure. … Just ignore it.) The entire time you are rooting for these two as they seem to get themselves into situations that seem impossible to get out of alive. It also has you scratching your head at the complexity of everything. Also, there is lots of fan service. You have been warned. Also, there may or may not be a second season or a movie coming out for it. Nothing has really been confirmed, but let me know if anyone has heard anything.
If you ever need a show that completely takes you expectation and then flips on its head, Nanatsu no Taizai or Seven Deadly Sins. For example, I wasn’t expecting this show to be that good, but I proved me wrong. Characters I only knew for a short while made me feel things I just wasn’t expecting. I even watched all of the specials immediately afterward because it was amazing. I can’t wait for the second season to come out this fall. (I think it comes out this fall. I absolutely hope so. The manga is still coming out, so who knows.)
What a show with absolutely no plot but is amazing at the same time? Watch Sakamoto desu ga? (There is a question mark in the title. That sentence weirds me out.) Sakamoto is the coolest guy in school by doing things that are not completely normal. Each episode is a two in one deal, including a special that has you questioning why, but an enjoyable experience none the less. You are also rooting for this kid, even though you don’t have to because he just does everything so cool.
P.S.: NateWantsToBattle did an English cover of the opening and it is AMAZING!
The protagonist of Shounen Maid takes this every seriously. He is a totally neat freak, who lives with is uncle after the death of his mother. He, in fact, forces himself to be a maid do he doesn’t feel like a free loader and can clean the house to his own content. The premise is kinda flimsy but it’s a watch. I will also admit that you might love this show if you like a very slow going show, but me, I was checking the time every view minutes to see how long I had left. Checking the time is a sure sign that it’s not something you love, but it was something to watch while I was bored.
Ever felt the need to run away from from the life that you live? The anime Mayoiga or The Lost Villiage explores this facet of life with a slightly supernatural twist as you follow thirty individuals. Is this way too many, yes. Do they go into that every one of them? Not even close, but at least you get close as to some of the ones that I would consider interesting. I really loved this anime, but feelings about this anime are all over the place. The reasons that some of the people have for running away are super iffy, but the ones that have real reasons, you truly empathize with them, which I feel is very important. I personally wished it was longer to go into more of the characters and see more development.
Ever wanted to watch history, especially World War II, without feeling sad about it. I would suggest watching Hetalia. It is a really cute show, as in five minutes a piece, where history is told through the personified characters of each country. I would recommend watching this anime in the English dub because of the ability to hear the different characters accents. While this is a good show, I will admit that it gets a bit ridiculous and having nothing to do with history, but I did like the first two “subacts” so to say. And the narrator is so sassy. I love her. Definitely check it out if you like.
I have watched the entirely of Itazura Na Kiss for what has to be the fifth time. And I am still loving it. It is the stereotypical love story between an intellectually-challenged girl and an emotionally stunted boy. You know, the usual. Except in this one, you actually see them through their life, separate and together as this anime takes them through high school, college and their adult working life. It’s girly, but I very much enjoyed it, and maybe you will too.
There is going to be lots of anime posts for the next two weeks. I’ve had these on backorder as I have been away. Diversity of content hopefully to come soon.
It’s a new year yet again, and I personally hope that it ends up extremely better that 2016. Because let’s face it, 2016 was horrible for everyone involved. I, for one, lost a portion of my eyesight, as I have to wear an eye-patch so that I can have singular vision. I also have no depth perception now, so I run into things … a lot. Don’t ask me why. I was a klutz before all of this started. I’m not going to promise anything or make any “resolutions” because that’s not how life really goes. I will say that I will try to do things, but college is a thing. To me, education comes first so things I want to do will take a back burner to everything. But that is it for this Monday, and I hope that this year is a whole lot better for everyone.
