Weekly Check-in 4/10/21

Hey guys how’s it going? Weekly Check in time!!!! This was a week that I was very unexpectedly slumpy when it came to my media consumption.

However, I watched three anime, one manga, one comic collection, and one novel! Onto the media!

Anime

Zombie Land Saga

I was recommended this by the Dub Talk Podcast and I am really glad that I watched this.

This anime was actually a lot more fun and interesting than I thought it would be. I also recommended this to my boyfriend for something to watch but upon watching it, I have to say yes but no because there are a ton more things that were more girl driven than unisex.

However, I enjoyed so much of this anime with the variety of characters, the music, the humor, and the plot (although frankly I wish there was more to it than what was happening plus the end with the double amnesia plot-lines mehh??? Anyway, overall, I enjoyed this anime and I am excited for the next season coming up. Because of these points, I have to give this anime a 3.5 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.

My Hero Academia

I did a mini photoshoot a few weeks ago with a couple of my figures when I was rewatching the anime and I thought this figure was appropriate for this week.

This week I caught up with what is available on My Hero Academia and since Shoto is my favorite male character in this series, I am very curious to see how his and other characters’ story arcs are going to continue on. I enjoyed that there are some more twists and turns that I am not sure what is going to happen (although I may need to accumulate more episodes before I continue watching watch week to week may be too difficult for me). Overall, I am truly enjoying this series and am excited to see what’s going to happen next. 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi🍣🍣🍣🍣.

The Way of the Househusband

This was April’s pick in my discord buddyreadbuddywatch channel: Check out fun discussions and monthly buddyreadbuddywatches! (link in the info page)

Ok, if you guys have read this blog for a bit, I have looked forward to see this anime to see the translation from the manga and it was enjoyable but at the same time I had some minor complaints. First, I loved the characters and the humor like with the manga etc. Second, I loved yet hated that there was only 5 episodes!!! I understand that it was because there were a ton of mini episodes however, I wanted more!!!! Besides that, I also had some minor nitpicks with the music wasn’t my favorite and the animation felt although perfect for more accessibility towards western audiences/new anime watchers, it to me felt even more choppy than the manga did like robots moving etc. Overall though, its definitely a fun ride and perfect to watch for a laugh in a day. 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣🍣🍣🍣.

Manga

Series Starters

Those Snow White Notes

Thank you so much to Netgalley and Kodansha Comics for the opportunity to read and review this manga

This volume gave me a combination of Your Lie in April, NANA, and Beck Mongolian Chop Squad vibes but with a unique twist on them both? Trigger warnings for grief, violence, and language. I love the art in this manga especially when it came to the sound of the music along with the settings. I also enjoyed the story for what it was so far, however, I am not sure where it is going to go? It could go very profound or meh. I did hear this is also becoming an anime so that may transfer better for me but I do not know for sure. Overall though, I think I want to take this series one volume at a time. Because of these points, I have to give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars or 3 sushi 🍣🍣🍣.

Comic Collection

Little Moments of Love

I read the newest collection during Valentine’s day and I am so glad that I got this collection as well.

So I read this on a day when I was feeling pretty down, and it definitely picked me up. There’s a ton of little comics that if you’re looking for something that discusses a longterm relationship between two people (that are introverts at times) check this out. Like I said in my previous review of the newest collection, you can read this all at once but also a little at a time if you just need a quick pick me up. My only issue I had with this one was that I wish that some of them had more titles because I wasn’t sure if some comics were together or separate or what. Because of these points, I have to give this a 4 out of 5 stars or sushi 🍣 🍣🍣🍣. I am excited to read more from this author.

Novel

Just the Two of Us Book 2

Thank you so much to Poppy Publishing and Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book

The conclusion to this story was very awesome and sweet but dramatic all at the same time. Again, like its predecessor, it has the feels of a drama but at the same time fulfilling. Trigger warnings for abuse, rape, blunt language, death, surgery, and familial distress due to pediatric disease . Definitely a slow-burn on every aspect of this book including character development but I feel that this book went a little faster than its predecessor. I think my only issue with this again was the writing and a little too long for me personally. However, if you enjoy K-Dramas, I think you should at least give this duology/duet a try. 4.5 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣🍣🍣🍣.

The Week Ahead

For the week ahead, I am hoping that I get out of this slump! I mean I am loving the amount of anime I watched but I want to expand some more. What about you guys? What did you read or watch this week? Lets talk about it!
