Reading Part 3 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure or Stardust Crusaders was an event. Not only was this part the longest of the three, it introduced a totally new concept, and it did so super well. It was such an amazing thing to see how they mixed the concept of Hamon that was prevalent in the pervious parts and mixed it together to introduce the concept of stands. Stands , put simpily, are a manifestation of your soul. Each one, at least in this part, were expressed as tarot cards. It was just really cool to see a mixture of traditional and new creativity. So far, this is my favorite part, followed by Battle Tendency and Panthom Blood. Honestly, each part just gets better and better.
Two weeks ago was the Volume 5 finale to RWBY. I am uploading this now to give people who do not have access to Rooster Teeth have an opportunity to watch on YouTube before having the possibility of spoilers. Thus, do not continue reading unless you are will to have something spoiled.
Today, I will be talking about the amazing television show Miraculous: The Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir. Now, I now this is technically a children’s show, but I loved it. It has all of the tropes of cheesy 90s television that I love. Also, one of the producers of the show is the same producer of Sailor Moon, which probably explains why I love the show so much. For future reference, Sailor Moon is one of my favorite shows. I know it’s super mainstream, but I just adore it. But one again, this show is mir … ama … spectacular. I would reuse the word, but’s that super cheesy. Even more cheesy is the way I heard about this show. The dining hall for whatever reason had a children’s network on, and I would watch, without sound nonetheless, I was just sucked in. That night, I started binge-watching. I’m not even ashamed. It was so good. I honestly cannot wait for the next season to come out. I might just have to watch it in the original French. By the way, I can’t speak French. I shouldn’t be that hard though. I also want my two-person love square again. It’s too funny.
I feel like this is an amazing-ish title to go along with such an outstanding manga. I recently finished the manga Fullmetal Alchemist. If you want to read my review of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, click here. The manga, let me tell you, was so much better. I pushed through until the very end. I even neglected doing homework so that I could finish reading it. I felt the intensity of the last arc, same as I did when watching the anime. This manga also makes me even more scared of watching the original FMA anime. I’ve been told by some people that the changes don’t make any sense and that overall it is bad, but I was also told that the feelings are more intense. I’m going to wait a bit longer before watching that one, so that I forget some of what happened so that I can judge it as its own thing.
