Instead of watching one movie, I decided to watch four anime series. I won’t be doing that again. With each series being 5-6hrs long, it simply required too much of my time. Don’t get me wrong, for the most part I enjoyed myself, but that was seriously dedicated time that I’d rather be able to spend on other things, even if it’s nothing but goofing off.
This month I watched:
1) Big O, Season 1
2) Tenchi Muyo, OVA
3) Big O, Season 2
4) Record of Lodoss War OVA
With all of my anime posts, I didn’t write nearly so many non-review posts this month. Here’s the short list:
- Independence Day
- A History of ….. Magic the Gathering
- War in Heaven Quote
- #MusicMonday – Record of Lodoss War OVA
- Funny Food Figures
- ♪Give Me a Ticket for an Aeroplane, ♪Ain’t Got Time to Take a Fast Train♪
While my average rating was way down and I had three sub-2 star reads, I actually felt like I enjoyed my reading just as much as the previous month. No idea why, but I’m thankful for that because sometimes 1stars can just suck the very life out of one’s bookish existence.
Most of the month I was focused on getting ready for our vacation. It is amazing what you can plan even with lots of things being restricted. Throw in the fact that I haven’t gone on a week long vacation in I don’t know how many years and there is a lot of shopping that needed to be done.
Come on, we all knew this was coming. Even with a McKillip/Craft in the running, Lime Light, another Arcane Casebook entry, takes this hands down. Whatever money Dan Willis spent to hire Mihaela Voicu has been totally worth it in my opinion!
Plans for August: (LOTS)
I am hoping to read the Big O manga. Fill up those Manga Monday slots and possibly some extra as there are 6 volumes.
Watch ONE anime movie. Movie, not a series. I need a break from that much screen time.
Do two #6Degree posts. The one I missed in July and then the one for August.
Some Vacation Pictures and probably a Vacation Post or two.
Master the Insidious Block Editor and write every post for the month using it. And blog about it. What’s the point if I can’t complain like a baby?
Work on the blog. So if you get posts emailed to you, expect a potential flood of incoming old reviews. You have been warned.
