Anime Controversies [#Controversed]

Today it’s time for something a little bit different: let’s talk anime controversies. This is part of a series of posts that Moya from the Moyatorium is suggesting for November: Announcing Controversed: A November Workshop.

As I finally have an excuse to stop being lazy and actually write a blog post on my thoughts, let’s see the prompt for this week:

  • What is a controversy in the (anime/manga/other) community that bothers you, and why?
  • What do you think of controversies? Do you consider yourself or your blog controversial to any degree?

If you want to skip to any specific part, there’s a TOC on the sidebar. Also, I have no intention of offending anyone, but just sparking discussion, igniting a flame war and losing all my followers.

New Fiction Books I Got Recently [Nov. 2020]

On the past few months I’ve got some sweet new eBooks on my Kindle, further increasing the size of my ever-growing TBR list. But, who can resist a sweet deal, right?

Below I’m sharing some of the books I’ve acquired recently. It’s not everything, as some are free classic books, and some just not that interesting. Also, the list is still a bit big, so I left the non-fiction reads for a separate post. I guess I need to stop buying books for a while. Anyway, let’s check it out!

Fall 2020 Anime - What I'm Watching

A bit late to the party, but let’s talk seasonal anime. This is going to be a slow season for me, as I both behind in some titles, and reading/watching other non-anime stuff (and playing Animal Crossing).

I guess I can start with the things I’m behind, which is mainly 2: Re:Zero and Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?. For obvious reasons, I can’t start Danmachi’s 3rd season, even though I’m not sure I’m in the mood for it right now, and Re:Zero is something that interests me more/has a higher priority than most seasonal anime for fall 2020. I should also add that I have all Sound! Euphonium movies in my backlog. whew

Happy Halloween!

Have a happy halloween everyone!

It’s been a while since I posted last here, and I didn’t have time to prepare anything horror-themed :(

Enjoy the festivities, a pumpkin spiced latte, watch some Dark Shadows (the original soap opera) and listen to the Penny Dreadful OST!

Watched: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 3

When I started this show, the first 2 season were out already. AND I BINGED BOTH SO QUICKLY. It became of of those series I absolutely love (almost) everything about: the actors, story, setting, music, costumes, comedy. I even bought the first 2 seasons' OSTs in vinyl.

For some reason though, I started season 3 when it was released, but didn’t get to finish it at that time. And then I went to Brazil, and was locked there for 5 months… But coming back home decided to finally watch the second half of the season, and I loved it!!

Books I'm Reading Now [Sept. 24, 2020]

Time to talk about book I’m reading. On thing that I’m trying to do is have a few ‘active’ books, so I can have a change. Also, I’m trying to split my reads in 3 categories: fiction, non-fiction, and learning. The list below is a good example of that.
