Weekly Check-in 5/9/2020

Hey guys how’s it going? Today I’m going to summarize what I posted on Instagram recently, What I am currently watching, and What I am currently reading.

Instagram Posts

This post was actually to commemorate the creation of this blog. These pins/buttons represent who I am as a person and what I hope to bring to the table with this blog and my life in general.

This last one is a post that involves my wall décor and quotes that have got me through these last few months. It will be sucky to take it down when I move but once I get into a permanent place, I will have to put it up along with everything else. (Maybe I will post about it in the future 😉 )

Currently Watching

This past week, I have finished and started quite a few anime. They were a couple of blind ones I found on HIDIVE and a rewatch from a long time ago.

Rewatch: Angelic Layer

If you read last week’s post, I provided the synopsis for this anime/manga and will provide an in-depth review in the future but overall, I still enjoyed watching this again so much so that I wanted to read the manga as its source material. If you’re looking for a wholesome show with electronic dolls battling to be the best in Japan, check this out!

Blind Anime That I Completed: Just Because

This is an anime I found on Amazon Prime that was one I was intrigued by. Definitely nice for this time of year for high school seniors. There was also a romance hexagon involved.

The synopsis that the Anime News Network has is as follows:

“For a group of high school seniors, a chance reunion with a transfer student will change the course of their final year. Eita Izumi has come back to his hometown after four years and encounters some unlikely acquaintances: Haruto Soma, Eita’s childhood friend; Ena Komiya, the photography student who witnesses Eita and Haruto’s reunion; Mio Natsume, whose feelings for her middle school crush still linger; and Hazuki Morikawa, a girl who seems uninterested in romantic relationships. When the paths of these five cross, their fates turn in a way none of them could have seen coming. This original anime came out in 2017. It was a fantastic ride and would definitely recommend if you want some drama and senior reminiscing.

Blind Anime that I am Currently Watching: Chihayafuru

I just started this anime on Thursday. Probably because of all the Crunchyroll ads about it lol 🤣. But also because of the intriguing sport that it presents. There is also a love triangle involved that is interesting to say the least.

The synopsis is this:  

“Chihaya Ayase is a frank and ebullient girl who becomes fascinated by the obscure world of competitive karuta, a card game based on Japanese poetry. Introduced to the aggressive style of the game by a quiet and thoughtful elementary school classmate named Arata Wataya, the two quickly become close friends. They start playing as a group with Taichi Mashima, Chihaya’s smart and athletic childhood friend, until they have to part ways during their middle school years due to several circumstances. As their high school life begins, they meet once again.” The first season came out in 2011 with two subsequent seasons in 2013 and 2019 with its source material coming out in 2007 by Yuki Suetsugu licensed by Kodansha Comics.

I know this one might be a longer one than the previous one but I am curious how its going to turn out nonetheless.

Currently Reading


I am about 45% of the way through this manga at the moment; I think I am savoring it because I do not own the movie right now. So far so good though.

Graphic Novels

To be honest, I have been reading a lot more graphic novels than regular novels this week. I think its because with everything going on its just easier to read graphic novels plus they are a palate cleanser from the DNFs in my last post.

Here are the ones I have read so far.

I read this after not reading superhero comics in awhile definitely did not have to worry about being overwhelmed.
I ended up reading two volumes of this this week it was nice but at the same time I know it is one I don’t mind waiting to read more.
Last one I read was this one: definitely not for children but it was a fun read nonetheless. If you are looking for something similar to the Once Upon a Time television show, this is totally up your alley.

The Week Ahead

I will be honest, I am not sure how next week is going to turn out as far as my watching of anime goes. I am probably going to try and watch more of Chihayafuru and try to finish as much as I can.

As far as reading goes, I will probably try to read some more graphic novels, manga, and one very anticipated sequel. That is at least the plan of action but who knows.

How was everyone’s week? What did you watch or read? Let’s talk about it!
