It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed any book or e-book but this web novel is a really great companion read to the webtoon that I am currently addicted to. It makes the story of Under the Oak Tree all the more richer when its told from a different perspective. Perhaps, this was what Stephenie Meyer was gunning for with Midnight Sun?
All in all, I loved the story of Under the Oak Tree, the art and the characters. I’m actually reading the novel on Riftan’s POV, which I discovered from the threads. I’m going to read the novel on Maxi’s perspective after I’m done. This is how good this series is. I just can’t get enough of this couple.
I was blown away by Demon Slayer: Mugen Train because of the beautiful and consistent animation all throughout. There was no bad panel, not even one. The use 3D in combination with 2D animation was seamlessly crafted. The fight scenes never missed a beat. The use of perfect background music to accompany each scene made me ugly cry 25 percent of the movie and kept me suspended in suspense the remainder of the time.
By its end, Takemichi was basically back to where the series started, and yet because of everything he discovered about Toman, it would be interesting how he could influence the future with a lengthened stay in the past. Will he be able to save everyone? Should I already get started on the manga or should I suffer in excitement until the second season is confirmed? All in all, a highly recommended series. I binged it in a day. It’s that good.
It was a brutal battle that took everything out of the students. Even the normally unflappable Todoroki had difficulty figuring out how to suppress their powerful enemy. No one came out of it unscathed but it was a giant leap when it came to teamwork. From the first and second time they were attacked by big time villains, Class 1-A now knew their strengths and easily teamed up to complement each other’s strengths.
All in all, I would still recommend for Netflix to pick up the series for a second season. We have so much more mythical creatures to explore. Plus, there was too much backstory to unpack in just six half hour episodes. If Trese finds it in her heart to muster even a bit of enthusiasm for anything, Netflix should give her a chance to continue her journey.
After watching Iron Man 13 years after its original cinematic release, I would say that Iron Man was, and still remains one of the best movies in the MCU. Its pretty hard to top this so Phase 4 better shape up to meet the bar.
All in all, The Dark Triad arc was great but it only served to tease my excitement for what will come next. And now another long wait begins. I only take comfort in the fact that I can rewatch the entire series over and over again before the next one starts.
The Way of the House Husband is really funny as it depicts Tatsu’s complete 360 from his life of crime. What’s more, he makes a career out of being a house husband and fully commits to the role. From getting bargains to earning loyalty card points, to doing DIY projects, attending cooking class and even going to the gym with his new buddies — middle aged housewives who have welcomed Tatsu into their fold.
Overall, WW84 delivered on great effects and production. It was action packed. It was visually stunning and it had a good story to tell. It was an entertaining way to spend 2 and a half hours and Gal Gadot was marvelous as Wonder Woman. The pandemic really did a disservice to this movie. It definitely have been even better as a theater experience.
