This is very late because we were away camping, but here we go! I didn’t do one of these for June since not much happened so a couple of things from then will be included here.
I have Summer Holidays now! Which is nice. I took part in Camp NaNoWriMo this year with one of my friends, which was fun. I got a lot of planning for Blue Team done. I also got headshots done of the main cast. Hopefully I’ll be doing an updated height chart soon.
I also got Clip Studio Paint! It’s amazing.
I watched Love Live! School Icol Project because my sister said to and the spin-off was coming out soon. It made me way more emotional than I thought it would.
Then I started watching said spin-off/sequel, Love Live! Sunshine! which is more or less the same premise but set in a small seaside town instead of Tokyo. The characters are lovely so far. I think my favourite is Yoshiko/Yohane, she’s hilarious.
We bought Kung Fu Panda 3 and watched that with our cousin. It was a lot of fun, but the second film is still my favourite.
Lastly I watched Voltron: Legendary Defender because literally everyone on the internet abruptly became obsessed with it. I’m not into giant-mechas-in-space myself, but it was still very enjoyable. The characters and plot are great and it gives me lots of feelings, which makes an automatic winner for me. It’s also surprisingly funny.
I didn’t get many books read this month. However I did manage to read the entire Bleach manga within a few weeks, because I’m insane. It’s very addictive (as you can probably tell), and pretty dang good. I do think there are too many fights? Like I know it’s a shonen so fights are pretty much a given but we end up having fights between random secondary characters we’ve only known for a few chapters and jump between like ten fights at a time, so it gets a little tedious. Still, there were a lot of good characters and it did succeed in making me cry several times, so it still qualifies as a good manga I’d love to watch the anime for.
I also read Twinepathy, which I started reading as it was serialized on the internet and decided to buy so I could read the finished thing. It was great! There were a lot of creative super powers, which is one of my soft spots so I was bound to like it. Also I need Blaze’s backstory immediately, please and thank you. Looks like the second book’s going to be centered more around him so hopefully I won’t have to wait too long.
Steven Universe is back with the Summer of Steven, new episodes every weekday for four weeks! Some serious stuff went down, including new fusions, backstory, and friendships, as well as boatloads of angst. It’s wonderful.
My Little Pony also returned, though I haven’t had time to watch the new episodes yet.
Love Live Sunshine started, and like I said it’s been lovely so far.
San Diego Comic Con was a thing, so lots of fandoms got new information, including a confirmed second season for Voltron and teases for new characters, kwamis, and episode plots for Miraculous Ladybug
I’ll be going to Sweden towards the end of the month with two of my siblings! Which will be exciting.
There’s also the Olympics, so that’s fun.
So that’s what I’ve been up to the last couple of months. Have you seen or read any of the things I did this month? Anything you think I should try? Planning anything fun next month? I hope you all have a fantastic Summer!
