A Month In Review: September 2016

month-in-review-spt-2016

Well, school is back. So things have been very busy for the last month. I haven’t had as much time for art recently, but I still got several pieces done that I’m really happy with. I did some palette requests on Tumblr, which was fun, and I got all the Blue Team redesigns done and redrew the height chart! I also started an Ask Blog for the characters so I can work on character development/consistency. You can find it here and leave questions if you like!

We watched several things this month. My sister’s friend came round fairly early in the month and as usual she brought her Studio Ghibli collection. This time we watched Laputa: Castle in the Sky. It was good, with a lot of cool animation and stuff. Not my one of my favourite Ghibli films, but still a lot of fun and worth watching.

We borrowed Batman Begins from our neighbors and watched that. I’ve never watched a Batman film before so that was fun. It was good, and quite Batman-y.

My sister got Iron Man for her birthday, so we finally watched that! It was great.

We also started watching the tv series, Victoria, which is about Queen Victoria (if that wasn’t obvious). It’s very interesting and well made.

games-played-sept-2016

This section isn’t going to be a permanent fixture, but I played enough games this month I thought it was worth giving it it’s own section. After drawing fan art I succumbed to playing Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, since we own it and there was a free save slot. I haven’t played strategy games in a while so that was pretty fun. It’s pretty hard too though.

I got a new phone this month! And I can play games on it 😀 (what do you mean that’s not very important). Most importantly Pokemon Go. Woo! It’s fun. And also makes walking fun. So that’s good. Yay for exercise (and Pokemon)

I also got the Love Live School Idol Festival game. It’s a lot of fun. My sister has it too so we can nerd over it together.

things-i-read

books-read-sept-2016

I finished the Ascendance Trilogy, which I started a long while ago. It was good!

I also finally got round to reading The Hidden Oracle, (which I finished literally like a week before book two was released :P). It was a lot of fun. Lots of good Rick Riordan-ishness.

I didn’t write any blog posts this month.

Fandom Stuff:

We got some more episodes of Steven Universe. Then it went on hiatus again. But at least we have some shorts to look forwards to!

Moana got yet another trailer.

RWBY got a character short! It’s amazing. So much hype for season 4

Other Internet Stuff:

next-month

Wow, there is so much stuff I’m hyped for in October!

RWBY Volume 4 begins on the 22nd! The character short released recently has me super excited for that!

Haikyuu!! Season 3 Begins!

The final Ruby Redfort book comes out! Hopefully it’ll be good!

There’s Halloween as well of course.

My Little Pony Season 6 ends! I haven’t been all that impressed with this season so far, but from what people have said about the leaked first part the finale will be amazing.

So that’s what I’ve been up to in September! Have you watched, read or played any of the things I did this month? Anything you think I should try? What are you looking forwards to in October? Hope you all have a great month!

A Month in Review: January 2016

Month in Review - Jan. 2016

Well, it’s a new year, and I have a new laptop! It’s wonderful. The year’s been pretty good so far. So let’s see what’s been going on.

I’ve been fiddling around with a bunch of new techniques and so on art wise, which has been fun and super helpful (finally I know how to do gradients in Sai) So while I haven’t gotten all that much art done, what I have done I’m really happy with.

Things I Watched

things watched jan. 2016

I watched more contemporary anime this month. First I watched Kimi Ni Todoke (which I actually started in December), and it’s very sweet.

Fairy Tail Zero began at the beginning of the month! It’s absolutely fantastic. I loved that spin off in the manga and the anime version captures it perfectly. (also the theme song is my favourite Fairy Tail opening yet)

I started watching Haikyuu!! with my younger brother. It’s about volleyball mostly, which is actually something I know next to nothing about, but it’s good anyway.

I also started watching a new anime, Prince of Stride, which is also about sports, though this one being about something that’s basically parkour relays (which is cool. Although apparently it’s not a real sport.) While it’s not technically particularly original, I love the characters so I’m watching it anyway. (Riku is just. the best thing.)

Movies wise, we watched Insurgent. It was good. Not nearly as fantastic as Mockingjay, but still good.

I also finally got to watch Inception, which I’ve been wanting to watch for like a few years but never got to till now (which is weird since we actually own it), with my dad. We’ve actually only watched about a third of it so far but I wanted to include it anyway. It’s been freaking amazing so far.

Things I Read

books read jan. 2016

I got a fair bit of reading done this month. I read a lot of Sherlock Holmes, and some of the old Naruto manga.

I also started reading the Rave Master manga, which is what Mashima wrote before he did Fairy Tail. It’s actually really good, and less cliche than I thought it would be.

I read some comic books for the first time, including an old Spider man comic, which wasn’t particularly good; and much newer Batgirl comic, which was considerably better.

Non-comics wise, I read:

  •  Darkness Reigns, the first part in Jill Williamson’s new fantasy series, which was good and very unique, if a little darker than my usual reading.
  • Castle in the Air, the sequel to Howl’s Moving Castle, which was quite different from the first book and quite good.
  • The latest Ruby Redfort book, which was considerably better than Book Four but perhaps not as good as the first three books.
  • Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer, the first book in Rick Riordan’s new Norse-Mythology-Based series, which was good. I don’t know nearly as much Norse mythology as I do Greek (which is weird considering I’m actually Scandinavian), but it was still fun.

On the Blog

I posted about my Top Ten Anime I watched in 2015. No prizes for guessing what came first.

Elsewhere on the Internet

Fandom Stuff:

As mentioned,the Fairy Tail Zero anime began, and it’s been fantastic so far. In the Fairy Tail manga, the fandom angst continues.

The second season of Akagami No Shirayuki-Hime also began, as well as the above mentioned anime Prince of Stride.

My Little Pony is confirmed to be returning some time in Spring, and we got a teaser clip.

Steven Universe had another Steven Bomb, which was amazing as usual, and then disappeared again.

RWBY continues, and the season is getting considerably darker and more depressing than any of the previous seasons.

Marissa Meyer’s next book, Heartless, got a cover reveal and excerpt

Next Month

The final book in the Lunar Chronicles series, Stars Above, comes out tomorrow!

The Gravity Falls finale airs on the 15th, after a full series marathon and a bonus feature thing.

So that’s what I’ve been up to so far this year. How’s your year been so far? Have you seen or read any of the things I did this month, and is there anything you think I should try? What are you looking forwards to in February?
