To talk about Promare, the new anime film from Studio Trigger (makers of Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, etc.) I have to start at Anime NYC. I went to Anime NYC this year and Promare was everywhere, from cosplays to posters to fanarts. I actually cosplayed as Kamina from Gurren Lagann and had a few people call me Galo from Promare. Needless to say, I was a little interested to see it. I wasn’t totally sold though. Fast forward to the past few days: Promare was coming back in theaters, December 8th for the sub and December 10th for the dub. My friends were going to the subbed version, and when one couldn’t go last minute, the ticket practically fell into my lap. There I was, walking in blind to this movie with no sense of what I was about to witness.
It’s always great to get an episode highlighting an interesting character that we haven’t seen enough of. My Hero Academia focused on Tamaki, aka Suneater this week, and showed a lot of what drives him and what kind of person he is. In conclusion: Tamaki is sweet and loves his friends!
Welcome to my weekly My Hero Academia reviews! I’ve been a fan of this show for about a year, and this is the first time I’m actually watching the shows as they air. I should also mention I watch it with my three other roommates, so I have tons of theories and fun commentary to share about the show. Also worth mentioning, I’m approaching this from a show-only perspective, so I haven’t read the manga and have no idea what’s coming. So better late than never, and I’m going to be writing weekly recap/reviews for this new season. So far, the season has been amazing, and with Overhaul continuing to cause tensions with his Quirk-erasing master plan, this week continues to build the suspense to a ridiculous high.
NaNoWriMo is something I’ve tried to participate in every year. Every year, I fail pretty hard at even approaching that 50,000 word count we all aspire to. I pick at bits and pieces of short stories and novels, never quite hitting the mark on any of them. Now, at the halfway mark of this year, I find myself ahead of schedule in the mid to high 20k range for my word count on a novel I literally conceived on November 1st.
I was upset to hear that BoJack Horseman was ending with its sixth season. It’s been my favorite show on Netflix since its premiere, and every season has been consistently well-written, animated, and acted. However, after watching the first part of the final season, as it is being split in two with the second half scheduled to air in a few months, this does feel like a natural ending point. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still criminal of Netflix to cancel this show, but I think they’re finding the best way to end it from what I’ve seen.
