W – Two Worlds -Review-



This is a show that had an interesting concept and I enjoyed it. As of writing this it’s rating on Viki¬†is at 9.8/10 so I’m not alone.

This drama follows Kang Chul (Lee Jung Suk), a character in Oh Sung Moon’s (Kim Eui Sung) graphic novel. After trying to kill Kang Chul off, both Sung Moon and Oh Yeon Joo (Han Hyo Joo) get pulled into the world of the graphic novel. ¬†Sung Moon continues to try and kill Kang Chul off while Yeon Joo simply wants him to be happy. This struggle added on to the graphic novel’s story line of Kang Chul trying to figure out who killed his family makes for an interesting ride.

This drama was a slow start for me I will admit that. Around 4 or 5 episodes in I really started to get into it. Lee Jung Suk is super cute in this drama and it took a while for me to see him as an action lead, but he delivered. I enjoyed it completely and would suggest that you watch it.

Crunchyroll Fall Anime Lineup 2016 part 3




Ever just watched something and then wondered what you watched. That was this show for me, but it’s intrigued me. Before the anime starts, we find out that there was a disease that was keeping people awake for¬†over a week and they created a drug to cure them, but it turned the sufferers into vampires.¬†Bloodivores still exist but there is a stigma around them. The first episode has the leading characters sentenced to death. I don’t understand what’s¬†going on and I’m hoping the rest of the anime makes it clear.


Izetta : The Last Witch

I will admit¬†that I don’t normally like historical fictions. But this anime brings in just enough fantasy to spike my interest. We follow Princess Fin√©, the princess of¬†Eylstadt, through her adventure to save her country. When she was a child, she befriended the last witch in the world and the friendship pays off in the end. I’m not sure where this is going but I might actually keep up with this one. The art design is on point, though.


Aooni The Blue Monster

If you guys could see the¬†WTF expression I have on my face after watching Aooni you would be laughing. This anime is 3 minutes and filled with WTF. ¬†A group of classmates must find their way out of a haunted house, but the door won’t let them leave. Um… Yeah, watch this for yourself.


Show by Rock!!

I’m not sure what to think of this show. It’s an idol anime mixed with supernatural powers. An alien queen wants to take the sound away from the world. The Idols of the world must unite¬†together to save music. I’m not sure what to think but I don’t think I’ll be watching this again.

My Love Story!!



Another Live action shoujo movie and another movie that I love. I’m surprised that they managed to find an actor that they could make look like Takeo.

This movie follows Goda Takeo (Suzuki Ryohei)¬†through the meeting and courting for his relationship with Yamato (Nagano Mei). Unlike the anime and manga, it ends with the confessing of their feelings. I kind of want a 2nd movie but I also want it to stay where it is. There are some difference between this movie and the source material, so if you’re a stickler for details you might not want to watch this. I like the change and thought that it added to the characters.

The acting was perfect and it was an excellent rendition of My Love Story. It gets 2 thumbs up in my books for  a good watch.

Kwon, an old friend of trio arrives¬†and is greeted by ¬†Ki Bum. They are what he’s studying and is told that everyone is studying for the same civil servant exam. Kwon thought it was odd, but Dong Young tells him that more people go into admin and there is a 128.3 to 1 chance of passing. This seems to take the wind out of Kwon’s sails.

Jin Yi, Won Hae and Jung Suk¬†meet to discuss the schedule for ¬†the following month. Jung Suk isn’t happy with his time slots and has them moved. Jin Yi asks¬†if he’s so picky why he doesn’t plan it next time. Jung Suk thinks it’s an excellent idea. He goes into his office and they start complaining about him. He comes out and they are worried that he’s heard.

Gong Myung comes back with some drinks to find Ha Na asleep. He finds it cute that she’s fallen asleep. He watches her sleep and lays his head next to her.¬†He goes to kiss her but stops before sitting up. He tells himself that it’s cheating and that he’ll work hard to pass for her sake.

He admits that he got lost and suddenly all the memories of him getting lost came back to the 2 men. Kwon decided to switch to being a police officer. Ki Bum pushes him and takes him for a jog but he gets winded and he asks if he can really make it as a police officer. Finally, they sit down and try to figure out something he can go. He thanks them but leaves for the hostel. While thinking over Kwon, Dong Young gets a call from Gong Myung asking for his notes. Only then does he find out Gong Myung was in the hospital.

Gong Myung tells his friend not to come visit and hangs up just as Ha Na comes in with the humidifier. Gong Myung tells her to rest while he’s in the washroom but when his mother calls she picks up.

Jin Yi wonders if Min Ho is actually thinking about breaking up with her as he hasn’t called her. Jung Suk sees her leaves and mimics her asks who would like a man like that.

Sandman Slim (Sandman Slim #1)



Would you like some blood guts and revenge? If the answer is yes then this book is probably for you. Enter inside and you will meet Stark, also known as Sandman Slim by the supernatural. After surviving 11 years in hell, Stark is back with a vengeance and as the goal or killing the group of people who sent him down there.

Now, having the main character as an anti-hero is the toughest thing to master, but Kadrey did it right. Even though Stark is going around doing horrible things, he’s so well fleshed out as a character that you can’t help but feel for him. You end up rooting for him, because though he’s the bad guy he’s taking out bigger nasties. I liked this book and I think I will be continuing to read the series. in the future.

Apologies and Talk of the Future!!


As most have noticed, my recaps have been lagging the last few weeks.¬†I have sadly been fighting multiple allergic reactions as well as a cold. I have been pushing myself to write the recaps but I can’t get motivated. So I’ve come to a tough decision. I am going to be putting recaps on hiatus until the new¬†year to give myself chance to want to do them again. This doesn’t mean that I’m going to stop working on the ones¬†I currently have. I will finish Let’s Drink and Jealousy Incarnate, but after that, there will be no new ones until January.

I know about 75% of you like my blog for my recaps, but as I run this myself while working a full-time job I have to think about my strain on myself.¬†This will not stop the base of what I do. I will still have my reviews up, as well as my podcasts. I will continue expanding into different areas and¬†look into different things that I can continue talking about. This break doesn’t mean my¬†blog will fall silent, just that I need to step back a focus on other things.

I am very grateful to everyone and I know that this means my states will drop for the next few months. I’m ok with that so ¬†can come back full tilt and ready to go. Thank you¬†to everyone for your patience and I will do my best to come back full tilt in the new year.
