In the anime Binbougami Ga! or Good Luck Girl, you meet two adversaries. One, a girl who has an overwhelming amount of happiness or good luck energy who also slowly sucks this away from other people, and the other, a poverty god who is just trying to right the scales. It is a funny show with fun characters that everyone would fall in love with. This show is classified as a shounen, so there are some really perverted male characters, but you just have to run with it. The characters are memorable, and watching them grow is truly remarkable. I would suggest this to anyone who whats a good laugh. It is fast-paced action and hardly any filler. I honestly want the second season that they were hinting at the end.
In the weird world that is anime logic, there is Ai Mai! Moe Can Change! It is apparently based on a video game, and you can honestly tell. It is a single episode of what-is-going-on. It is simple and straight to the point, but it is still almost unintelligible amongst the nonsense. Some people are people; some people are robots. Everything starts when two girls find a phone that can change people’s outfits at will. It’s an interesting thirty minutes of comedy that is definitely for the shoujo loving crowd. It is fast-paced animation, bright colors, and a single magic girl transformation sequence that made my heart squeal. And honestly, it is a thirty-minute show. What do you have to lose?
A show that I watch kinda sporadically was Flashpoint. Well, good news. I have actually watched the entire show from start to finish, finally. It is an action packed thriller that is a combination of a S.W.A.T. team and Criminal Minds. I can’t say it’s like the show S.W.A.T., because I have not seen it yet. But this show was action and drama is intensive and nerve-wracking. There are times when you cannot tell that it will go well for the protagonists. This is a sit on the edge of your seat kind of cop show. Instead of having days to solve a crime like in other shows, in this one, they have a couple of hours, at most, to solve the issue. Sometimes, they don’t even get that. It is fast paced and enjoyable ride from start to finish.
Playing escape games were a past time for me, and I recently wanted to get back into them. In comes Escape Logan Estate. It is an escape style game with a story. You are at you grandfather’s house and are searching around it. Other than that, I’m a little confused about what is going on. You have to solve puzzles around the house, but it’s not to escape. It’s to uncover the story. The first chapter is free, but the last two are about $3.00 each. Someone might find the worth it, but I personally didn’t, especially when you introduce a story element that has no conclusion. If you just play the first chapter, you will understand. At the end of it, I had more questions than answers. Maybe you guys can explain to me what’s going on. Personally, I wouldn’t pay for this game, but unfortunately, I found that out afterward. If you guys still want to play the game, you can find it on Android and iOS.
This book is severely weird in a hope that as soon as I mention the title of said book, you will get my point. I just read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I mean I watched the Disney version, as well as the first Tim Burton one, but it didn’t prepare me for how weird it was. There were sections that I had to reread several times just so I could get all of the facts straight. The way dialogue was written also threw me off but that is another story. And to be completely honest, I have no clue how the story ended. I think I understand what happened, but I’m still not 100%. I’ve asked other people who have read the book, and they are not too sure about it either. It is a short book so I could reread it again to try and figure it out, but I’m pretty sure it’s not supposed to make sense. I will be reading the second to embrace myself in the weirdness once again. Let’s hope I can get out of that one brain completely intact.
There are many times when you start to read a series, you get to the last update available, and then completely forget about the series until years later when that are about five more updates. This is one of those series. I have recently rediscovered a series known as The Fallen. I’m pretty sure that there are seven books in this series, but I only remember two of said books, so I decided to reread and finish the series.
It was just as good as I remember. It was fast-paced and didn’t waste a single scene. This series surrounds angels and religious symbolism. This means that if you are sensitive to this sort of things in books, this probably isn’t the series for you. But if you are okay with this sort of thing, I’m confident that you will enjoy this book. The protagonist relatable and well written. He sticks to his guns unlike many other characters in a similar situation as he. He is also a fighter. He is a genuinely a good character that you want to succeed.
I’ll be writing reviews for this series similar to how I am writing reviews for the Vampire for Hire series. Hopefully, that is an easy format to follow.
I have recently gotten into webcomics. The first one that I finished was a short one called I’m NOT Drunk. It is a short webcomic about the strange things people do when they’re drunk. This comic ranges from drunken singing to accidentally asking people out. It was adorable and made me giggle a couple of times. It is short, sweet and very to the point. It’s also easy to see who the drunk person is because they are colored in red. Each “round” is a funny scenario or reaction to a scenario by the characters that stereotypical of drunken people. I would recommend reading this if you want something to give you a little laugh.
If you know some good webcomics, I’m up for suggestions. I’m new to the scene and don’t know very many sources.
Recently, I have read the super cute book A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo by Jill Twiss. It was sponsored by HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, which is where I heard about the book from. I don’t read many children’s book, but this one was well worth it. I’ve read it twice, and it brought tears to my eyes both times. The best part about this book is that 100% of the proceeds go to the Trevor Project and AIDS United, two amazing causes to get behind. I would personally get this book anyway that you could. Even though this book was written with a political agenda, it is a good book. Nothing political is explicit, so if you want to read to this, they will only get the message of love. I’m not going to spoil anything from this book(except for in the tags), you are just going to have to get your hands on a copy. You can get it here.
