Wow I didn’t really blog at all this month. Oops. Hopefully I’ll get some done in March. Anyway! On with the post!
There’s been more college this month. Now I’m doing Mondays as well. We went down to Surrey for a community retreat (again), which was actually pretty fun for once since the more… annoying… people weren’t there. My sister somehow managed to convince people to watch Attack on Titan with her. That was unexpected.
I’ve been working on a bunch of stuff for the two webcomics I’m planning (One being a fairly short MLP fan comic and the other being Blue Team)
Art wise, I’ve been working on developing my own art style more, which has been really fun. I’ve also gotten better at shading, and worked out how to do colour changes and use stroke stabilizers in Sai. I did a bunch of art I’m really happy with.
I watched a ton of stuff this month.
Movies wise, I finished Inception with my dad. Wow that movie’s amazing people. Go watch it if you haven’t already.
My sister’s friend came over for a sleepover and brought every Studio Ghibli film ever with her, so obviously we watched some of those. First we watched The Cat Returns, which was a fun movie. It had quite a different style from the other Ghibli films we’ve seen, which was interesting. We also watched Kiki’s Delivery Service, which was also pretty fun, and in the more classic Ghibli style.
Then at the retreat we watched Source Code, which is another one of those Confusing Sci-Fi Movies. It was really good, other than the… rather odd ending.
I also watched a whole bunch of anime. First up was Akatsuki No Yona, and wow. That anime was amazing. Definitely one of my favourites. Go watch it already. (also don’t get put off by the abrupt bloodiness in the first episode. It’s way worse than anything else in the rest of the anime)
Next I watched Shirobako, which is an anime about, well, anime. As in it’s about making anime. It was a lot of fun, and also really interesting.
Then my sister finally got me to watch Chihayafuru, which is about a competitive card game, but is structured like a Sports Anime. It was actually surprisingly good.
I also watched the Fairy Tail Movie. It was pretty bad to be honest, but then anime movies are pretty much never good.
I literally only watched Sword Art Online II because I needed something action-y in between the calm, slow-moving episodes of Chihayafuru. And wow. It was actually way better than the first one (the first story-arc, anyway. After the first 14 episodes or so it seems to lapse into a bunch of less interesting mini-arcs). Still not amazing, and there were a few things I didn’t really like, but not something I regret watching.
RWBY Volume 3 ended on Valentine’s Day, and wow. It hurts so much. And not in a fun, this-hurts-and-it’s-amazing-can’t-wait-for-more way. No, just exhausting, emotional, agonizing pain. Let me just, cry in a corner for a few hours.
I also re-watched Ocean’s Eleven at the retreat, and started watching Noragami with my brother, who hadn’t seen it yet.
I hardly read anything this month. I continued reading the Rave Master manga. It’s hilarious spotting all the things that are referenced or reused in Fairy Tail.
I won Heartless in a giveaway, and man I’m so freaking confused. I didn’t really understand anything that happened in that book and it annoys me. Please, someone explain.
My friend gave me Scorpion Mountain, so I finally got to read that. It was good. Not sure whether it’s supposed to be the last book in the series or not, but I’m happy either way.
Nothing really happened on the blog.
Gravity Falls came to a satisfying conclusion. Kinda sad that it’s over though.
Volme 3 of RWBY ended, and like I said it was painful. The fandom is coping with puns and fan art of dead people.
My brother and I caught up in Haikyuu! and… stuff happened.
Zeref made his appearance in Fairy Tail Zero (which I think is almost over), Akagami No Shirayuki-hime killed me with cuteness, the painfully long and pointless filler arc in Naruto Shippuden finally came to an end, and Prince of Stride continues with a whole lot of hilarity and angst.
The Lunar Chronicles are getting Graphic Novels, and Stars Above came out. (I still haven’t managed to obtain a copy, though)
and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is confirmed to be returning in May!
Other Internet Stuff:
- Imogen @ Gossiping With Dragons described the Elements of a Good Romantic Subplot
- Stori Tori’s So Your Character is From… series kicked off with a post about Australia!
- And Leonardo Di Caprio finally won a freaking Oscar.
Fairy Tail Zero will probably come to an end, but I’m not sure if we’ll be heading onto the Avatar arc straight away or if there’ll be another filler arc.
I have a feeling I’ve forgotten something important but oh well.
How was your February? Have you seen or read any of the things I have this month, and is there anything you think I should try? Can someone please explain Heartless to me? What are you looking forwards to in March?
