It’s once again a new month and it’s time to share what stories I have read or seen (it’s not many)
Demon in the wood
It was good but not much really happened in it. it was quite underwhelming but it was cool to see a different side of the Grisha world and Erik. The art was quite good, though.
Before he led Ravka’s Second Army, before he created the Fold, and long before he became the Darkling, he was just a lonely boy burdened by an extraordinary power. Eryk and his mother, Lena, have spent their lives on the run. But they will never find a safe haven. They are not only Grisha – they are the deadliest and rarest of their kind.
Feared by those who wish to destroy them and hunted by those who would exploit their gifts, they must hide their true abilities wherever they go. But sometimes deadly secrets have a way of revealing themselves…
the Barbie movie
It definitely wasn’t what I expected but I really liked it. It was a bit heavy on the feminism at times but I felt that the Ken’s got there moments as well which made up for it. I really liked the soundtrack and I’ve been listening to I’m just Ken on repeat since the album came out. And no it’s not some mind blowing blockbuster but it delivers on what I wanted from this film which is some lightheartedness nostalgia and a good time.
Barbies days are always amazing in Barbieland but then one day everything changes and her foot goes flat know if she’s going to fix things she’s going to have to go to the real world! With the unwanted help of Ken, Barbie heads to the real world but what they discover could not just change their lives but the whole of Barbieland.
The ladybug movie
It feels like I have been waiting for this film for a life time and I’m not really sure how I feel about it. I did think it was going to continue with the show but it ended up being a new story completely and rebooted the story. There was also singing which felt out of place at times which wasn’t helped by Marinette’s singing voice being a lot older than her character is but some of them were quite good but I felt like we could of done with less songs and more character growth and story lines.
I liked that all the original cast was in there and the animation looks amazing I do wish the tv show could look like that (I know why it can’t but a girl can dream)
This exciting Miraculous origin story follows shy Parisian teenager Marinette as she starts the year in a new high school. On her way home, Marinette saves a mystical old man who gives her the Miraculous gem, transforming her into the superhero Ladybug, bestowed with powers of creation. At school, Marinette has fallen for Adrien, the sheltered son of millionaire fashion designer Gabriel Agreste. Meanwhile, Adrien has been transformed by another Miraculous gem into the superhero Cat Noir – and begins to fall for Ladybug, his opposite. Unaware of each other’s true identities, the duo team up to battle the supervillain Hawk Moth, who in reality is none other than Adrien’s father, seeking control of the Miraculous gems to bring his wife back to life. With Hawk Moth sowing chaos and destruction across Paris, Ladybug and Cat Noir’s talents are put to the test in fierce battles with his minions. Yet still greater tests lie ahead. Can Marinette, as Ladybug, find the courage to believe in herself? Will this star-crossed hero and sidekick become something more to each other when their masks come off?
the helpful fox senko-san
My husband and I started watching this on funimation back when it was a thing with dubs but when we switched to Crunchyroll at first wasn’t there and then when it was added a few months later it was only in Japanese with subs but they recently added English dubs so we were finally able to finish it.
Kuroto Nakano is a young salaryman with a very unhappy and stressful life, almost entirely occupied by his job at the company for which he works. One night, after yet another day spent overworking, the moment he opens the door of his home he finds a seemingly young girl with fox ears and a tail cooking dinner for him – her name is Senko, an 800-year-old fox demigod. Senko has been sent to Earth from the spirit world to relieve Kuroto from his unhappy life and help him find happiness again.
Konosuba! An explosion on this wonderful world
Well as expected this was a very fun and silly anime with lots of references to Konosuba! I liked that you got find out how (let’s be honest the best character) Megumin became the greatest explosion magic user.
One year before a certain useless goddess and NEET extraordinaire hit the scene, Megumin, the “Greatest Genius of the Crimson Magic Clan,” is hard at work. Ever since a life-changing encounter in her youth, the young wizard has dedicated her every waking moment to the pursuit of the ultimate offensive magic: Explosion magic. Well, every moment not spent hustling food from her self-proclaimed rival. While the big sister’s away, the little one will play too and on a routine trip into the woods, Megumin’s little sister, Komekko, finds a strange black kitten. Little does she know that this cat plays a key role in unsealing a Dark God’s tomb.
Good omens season 2
season two is finally here and it was far to short and it ended up on a cliffhanger of sorts. I wasn’t sure what the story line for this season was going to be as the first season wrapped up the Armageddon storyline, I liked that this season focused on a different flashback story while showing the present day struggles of having Gabriel around.
Season 2: A naked archangel turns up at the door to renegade angel Aziraphale’s bookshop, with no memory of who he is or how he got there, and Aziraphale and retired demon Crowley’s lives become extremely complicated. Heaven and Hell are both desperate to find the runaway. As Crowley and Aziraphale attempt to fix a human romance, things become increasingly unsafe for them, in the past and the present.
Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon maid season 1
This is just a really nice anime with moments of over the top action and madness. I like that it has a really good mix of a slice of life anime but it still has an ongoing plot with a lot of action.
As Kobayashi sets off for another day at work, she opens her apartment door only to be met by an unusually frightening sight—the head of a dragon, staring at her from across the balcony. The dragon immediately transforms into a cute, busty, and energetic young girl dressed in a maid outfit, introducing herself as Tooru.
It turns out that the stoic programmer had come across the dragon the previous night on a drunken excursion to the mountains, and since the mythical beast had nowhere else to go, she had offered the creature a place to stay in her home. Thus, Tooru had arrived to cash in on the offer, ready to repay her savior’s kindness by working as her personal maidservant. Though deeply regretful of her words and hesitant to follow through on her promise, a mix of guilt and Tooru’s incredible dragon abilities convinces Kobayashi to take the girl in.
Despite being extremely efficient at her job, the maid’s unorthodox methods of housekeeping often end up horrifying Kobayashi and at times bring more trouble than help. Furthermore, the circumstances behind the dragon’s arrival on Earth seem to be much more complicated than at first glance, as Tooru bears some heavy emotions and painful memories. To top it all off, Tooru’s presence ends up attracting several other mythical beings to her new home, bringing in a host of eccentric personalities. Although Kobayashi makes her best effort to handle the crazy situation that she has found herself in, nothing has prepared her for this new life with a dragon maid.
gangan impact the mines quest
I’m very behind in the game as I haven’t played it for a few months but when I got back in to the game there was the mines to discover so I could get to S. the thing that I didn’t like about this quest and the thing I find annoying with the game is that it had no audible dialogue which happens on anything that isn’t the main story even if like in this case you need to do it to get to the rest of the story.
well that is July I would like to try and read more in August but I will wait and see what it brings, till next time.
