Weekly Check-in 03/04/2022

Hey guys how’s it going? Weekly Check-in time where I have knocked a ton of different media off my backlist

Because of this, I watched five TV shows and three anime. I also read one comic collection and three manga volumes. Onto the media!!

TV Show

Bake Squad

This is a show that has famous bakers competing for a chance to help someone with an event. Thankfully it’s not a negative competing game and everyone helps each other for the most part. Its also a lot of elaborate cakes. Because of these points I have to give this a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.

Tattoo Redo

This is just a quick series that shows 4 different types of tattoo artists whose sole job is to cover-up people’s tattoos. I love the positivity among them and how pretty much most of the episodes were great and easy to binge. I think my only issue was the host was kinda annoying at times. Because of these points, I have to give this a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣🍣🍣🍣.

That 90s Show

When I was a kid, I used to watch that 70s show with my parents all the time. Because of that, when I found out about this series I was worried it wasn’t going to be as good as every other reboot/spinoff I have watched…. watching the last few episodes with my parents made me want to try it from the beginning and get those feels again…. because of these points, I have to give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.


These latest episodes helped transition from one season to another and it greatly showed how when someone pretends everything is fine and when its not, serious consequences can occur. I know these episodes also show that when you find a soul mate you should never let them go no matter what happens, but I know not everyone believes in that…. point is I am excited to see how things progress and how the series will continue. 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.

Zoey 101

I think the time I watched this this week I just wanted something different something nostalgic etc. But honestly, this is a series im watching when I am in that mood and nothing else because it has the simple plots, simple solutions, and some crazy shenanigans along the way. Watching this now reminds me of when I was young and wanted to do those things/wanted that to happen but I also know how unrealistic it can be. Overall though, if you want your tweens to watch a show that is older that still holds up, watch this. Because of these points, I have to give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.


My Hero Academia

This week I watched the latest episodes out and seeing it on screen rather than hearing about it made me actually more sympathy for Deku (honestly in the beginning he was so annoying). It makes me wonder as well, why the creator decided to wait this long to go this dark with the series…… we may never know. But I think for the moment I’ll need to bank some episodes to binge later because going week to week is going to be tough. Because of these points, I have to give this a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.

Shikimori’s Not Just A Cutie

This is an anime/manga series that one of my dear friends lovess and I can definitely see why. First, its an already established relationship with a fun friend group and the female is the right amount of strong and meek at the same time. I think my only issue is the leading guy at this point. He just seems too much for the story at this point. Because of these points, I have to give this a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣

Aggretsuko Season 5/Series Finale

This series ended not how I had expected, but in a good way?? I appreciated the more background that the characters were given but also make way for the next generation/full circle ending. I think though, I would appreciate more shenanigans/side stories for more character development overall but I am definitely going to rewatch this several times because I love the humor, characters, and how the plot is as a whole. Because of these points, I have to give this anime a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣🍣🍣

Comic Collection

Series Continuations


Going back to this series after not reading it for awhile was fun but at the same time I forgot everything from the previous volumes so except for the angst I wasn’t as invested (oops). Overall though, I think its a good series discussing fencing itself, but I think its better to binge it all the way through. Because of these points, I have to give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.


Series Starters

My Hero Academia Team-Up Missions

After watching the last couple of episodes of the anime, I wanted to keep this world in my mind and find out some new information. Reading this, I did get some new information especially when it comes to the Two Heros Movie and the Mirko hero character. But, I also got the feels of the prewar arc of the characters and some character development that was unexpected. Overall though, I am curious to see what the other volumes of this have in store, but ill take my time. Because of these points, I have to give this a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.

Blue Lock

I will be honest, I have a heard so many mixed reviews about this story. Because of this, I went into this manga with an open mind.. I can definitely see why a lot of people love this series but also why people hate it. I am intrigued by the psychological aspects of how the characters are thinking about the sport soccer and how they win or lose. I don’t think that I will love it as much as other sports series when it’s more team based, however, I still will love to continue to see how the plot and characters respond to everything. Overall, Blue Lock is not going to be for everyone especially when it comes to the cruelty and meanness of the characters. Because of these points, I have to give this a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi. 🍣🍣🍣🍣

Miss Miyazen Would Love to Get Closer to You

The reason I got this first volume was because of all the hype that the manga internet community brought, and I can definitely believe the hype here! I truly enjoy the slow burn friendship that is occurring in this and the artstyle is also adorable. I think my only issue is the panel style seems too much like a 4koma for me personally and it makes things difficult to follow sometimes. Because of these points, I have to give this manga a 4 out of 5 stars or 4 sushi 🍣 🍣 🍣🍣.

The Week Ahead

The week ahead I think I am going to continue the momentum of reading and watching all over the place but who knows. What about you guys? What did you watch, read, or listen to this week? Let’s talk about it~!!!!
