Weekly Check-in 02/25/2023

Hey guys how’s it going? Weekly Check-in time!!!! Where I have been relaxing when it comes to my media consumption.

I watched a couple of movies one anime and one western; I also watched a couple of animes. I read also a couple of volumes of manga and a graphic novel along with a picture book with my students. Onto the Media!!!


The Sting

This was a movie my parents wanted me to watch and just based on how this was formatted and how intense the pace was, this walked so Leverage the tv show could run. It was very intriguing yet confusing all at once, but the characters were cool, and the plot threw me for a loop about 4 times. Overall, though I think if you are fan of Leverage, I think you need to try this movie. Because of these points, i have to give this a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣🍣🍣🍣.

Anime Movie


This was my discord’s buddy watch pick if you are interested in the discord let me know

If you are someone that is definitely looking for an anime movie that is similar to all of the rest, but also want to see a dystopian sport anime movie, this is it. I liked the characters, I liked the themes, and the animation and music are beautiful. However, I think I wanted more character development from the main characters and more exposition when it comes to how things happened here. Because of these points, I have to give this a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣


After School Dice Club

This is definitely one of those anime that I think is going to be a perfect slice of life fave to binge-watch. Its about tabletop games which is something that is very interesting to watch especially when you want to know more about international board games. But it is possible that it might be too cutesy for some people. I also appreciated the life lessons that they show as well. Because of these points, I have to give this a 4-4.5 out of 5 stars or 5 sushi 🍣🍣🍣🍣🍣.

Romantic Killer

Well do you guys remember how last week I wasn’t a fan of this?? Maybe I just needed to keep watching because I like it more now. I wasn’t a fan of so many moments of the female main character being a gorilla towards love and towards the end of the series went so dark(stalkers, an almost rape scene etc.), that I didn’t like because it felt very extreme….I also didn’t think we needed the Princely character honestly but I do like the friendship aspect and the other characters got less cringey. Because of these points, I have to give the series as a whole a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.


Series Starters

A Nico-Colored Canvas

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

Yeaaaaaaa this one is definitely a blue period kitchen princess mashup (fluffy underdog with intense artists). Its a university level starting out which is unexpected and there’s not many artistic references with expositions which if you are not a fan of exposition, you’ll appreciate this manga. I love the characters (although one of them is a little questionable……..) and I appreciated the humor and camaraderie between them. Overall, though, I believe this manga needs to get out of digital jail and fill in the void that we need of artistic manga/anime. 4.5 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.

Series Continuations

You’re My Pet

I’ll be honest, I forgot everything that the prior volumes had….. however, I truly enjoyed the story and the characters (although there is a ton of girl hate and soap opera crazy drama so if that doesn’t interest you do not read this). I think my only issue is that we needed better movement from one chapter to the other. Because of these points, I’m giving this a 3.5 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.

Graphic Novel

Series Starters

Goldie Vance

I can definitely see now why this series is so popular for cozy mystery lovers. I loved the atmosphere, the characters, and the mini mysteries that were presented. The artstyle is also gorgeous and perfect for the story. I think my only complaint was that I wanted more background information on some of the characters, but I have a feeling that I will get that throughout the series. Because of these points, I have to give this a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣🍣🍣🍣.

Picture Book

Chocolate Space Bunnies

Thank you to Netgalley and BooksGoSocial for the opportunity to read and review this book.

This is an adorable story that would definitely be perfect for the bunny as well as chocolate lover in your life. It has beautiful art, and it has the perfect amount of humor. I think there were times when it went too long with the plot but overall, its one I can add for my speech students to read. Because of these points, I have to give this a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣🍣🍣🍣.

The Week Ahead

The week ahead, I would like to continue going through some of my backlist of all of my media. I also would like to do more community collab things even if it’s just commenting with a friend who has already watched it because I did that twice this past week and it was really fun. We shall see though. What about you guys? What did you read or watch this week? Let’s talk about it!
