I’m mostly thankful for the short week at work, because I’m totally not feeling it. I’m still in the new year mood, I guess… and the thought of dragging myself to office until my last day is so annoying!
Things that I’m watching now (even though I’m not done with Mikagura School Suite or Assassination Classroom… oops.)
Last Cinderella – focuses mainly on the love life of Sakura, who is trying to find love at the age of 39. She meets a handsome younger man, Hiroto at a party and is drawn to him. There is also Rintaro, Sakura’s boss and good friend. Side plots include her two good friends, Miki and Shima, who have their own issues with love and family.
Anyway, idk, but am I the only person who thinks Miura Haruma and Kazuya Kamenashi look alike?? It’s not 100% all the time, but when I’m watching Haruma play Hiroto, there are just angles where I was like, Kame-kun??
Okitegami Kyoko no Biboroku – a mystery-comedy drama, where the main character, Kyoko is a private detective with a major problem. Her memory resets every time she falls asleep, which means that she needs to solve every case within a day. So far the mysteries she is hired to solve are generally straightforward and the relationship between her and her hanger-on, Yakusuke is kind of cute.
Haikyuu!! – Hinata Shouyou, upon seeing a volleyball match, is aiming to become “The Small Giant”, and joins his middle school volleyball club. After finding new members, they set out for the middle school tournament, where they’ve cross paths with a formidable school with the “King of the Upper Court”, Kageyama Tobio. Although their team lost, Shouyou is still determined to aim for the top and exact revenge on Kageyama. Upon entering high school, he recieved the biggest surprise–he and Kageyama are on the same school and club!
Yes, I’m late to the game, and no, I know absolutely nothing about volleyball other than it hurts my fucking wrists when I have to hit the ball with my wrists. Which makes no sense! But yeah, watching cute boys doesn’t hurt anything.
And duddddde, the characters are adorable! Like Hinata, the orange-haired main character, is he like an expy of cute Naruto???! Like, he’s so smiley and hyper and yet also vulnerable and so determined???
Maybe I’ll move onto Free! when I’m done with catching up with both seasons 1 and 2 of Haikyuu!!.
Now that I’m done with the first game in the Zero Escape series, Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, I can move onto the next game, Virtue’s Last Reward, which has a really depressing subtitle in Japanese… Kyokugen Dasshutsu ADV: Zennin Shibou Desu; translated as “Extreme Escape Adventure: Good People Die / I Want To Be A Good Person”. Like, is that major foreshadowing??
But yeah, the gameplay is pretty intriguing so far, the rules are different, the game has changed, and you get to choose between listening to either the Japanese or English audio, which is a cool new function, since there wasn’t any voiced dialogue in the previous game.
So far… I think the puzzles are slightly harder but still manageable. But maybe because I haven’t gotten that far into the game yet, since I’ve only done like 3 escape rooms so far.
Last Week Tonight returns this coming Sunday! (or actually Monday, in my time zone). I’m getting my news dose with Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, but hey, John Oliver is still funny and entertaining.
Why didn’t I stumble upon this channel earlier? Because their videos are great – catchy tunes, hilarious lyrics, pretty decent singing and acting.
