What's New

14 Jan 18

A transpacific voyage can mean different things to different people, but for me it's a chance to watch a bunch of movies. What did I see on my trip home for Christmas? Well, let's see... In the order I saw them, we've got War for the Planet of the Apes, Logan Lucky, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and Dunkirk. Also, not related to the trip but acquired the week before is Volume 24 of Attack on Titan. We'll follow this next week with some movies I saw while I was back because I was hanging around my nieces (plus something I definitely wouldn't watch with said nieces). We'll also have more TBP (hopefully) and CeleKing2. Stay tuned.

We'll just say it took our gang that much longer to get to the Necropolis to explain the schedule slippage, but anyway, here's Chapter 36 of TBP. The final confrontation is coming up next week, so buckle up. In the meantime, look forward to my first batch of reviews for my airplane viewing. Stay tuned.

We conclude our coverage of Red vs. Blue (as it stands) with Season 14 and Season 15 and the mini-series "MIA" and "Where There's a Will, There's a Wall". And for the One Punch Man manga, we have Volume 11 and Volume 12. Next week we'll start with some of my recent viewings (airplane movies mostly) and hopefully I'll have the next chapter of TBP ready. Stay tuned.

Hey, look who's back? After a ridiculously protracted absence, I'm back with Chapter 2 of CeleKing2. I'm going to exert some serious effort to make up for my shortfall on TBP so we can resume with a regular schedule. I'm also going to put the next book into circulation so I can have enough lead time for when it launches. As far as reviews go, I'm going to finish covering RvB and then do some of my recent viewing before the February reviews start and then come back to cover RWBY. My Christmas vacation has thrown a lot of my work into disarray, but it was a worthwhile sacrifice. Now it's time for me to get back on track. Stay tuned.

A belated Merry Christmas, one and all. I realize I missed the weekend's reviews, but I've got other things keeping me busy. Yet somehow I've mustered the willpower to put together this update and give you Chapter 35 of TBP. I'm now caught up to my current place in the story, so I'm going to have to actually get some writing done if I want to make next week's update. I'll try to get those Christmas reviews out by the weekend, better late than never. Stay tuned.

Six years have passed and Yasuko is ready to get her revenge in Chapter 1 of CeleKing2. One sixteen-year-old girl versus a globe-spanning empire. No problem, right? Look for some Christmas-themed reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

We've got betrayal and intrigue as more sinister plans go forward in Chapter 34 of TBP. Look for more CeleKing2 and some festive reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

The Internet has been set on fire. As I stand amidst the flames, what do I have to say? Well, find out in my review of Star Wars - Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. To accompany this review, I also have a trio of contemporary documentaries about the OT: The Making of Star Wars, SP FX: Special Effects - The Empire Strikes Back, and From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of a Saga. Last but not least is the more all-encomapssing Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy. Christmas is coming up soon, so next week I'm going to be thematic for a change. Might that include a little something that bridges this week to next? ^_^ We've also got more TBP and CeleKing2 on the docket. Stay tuned.

The Legion's on the march in Chapter 33 of TBP. The stuff hasn't hit the fan yet, but it's about to. Before that, though, the time for the Jedi to end draws nigh. (I'll be amused if Snoke is all paranoid about Luke restarting the Jedi and the truth is he doesn't want to make another stab at it, so spending all these resources trying to find him was a total waste. Hee hee.) Look for the big review coming up. Stay tuned.

As I note in the first of these reviews, I actually dropped RvB after Season 10. Not because I was dissatisfied with it, but rather the opposite. After thinking the series found good places to end on Seasons 5 and 8, I decided Season 10 would be it. However, this review series got started when I decided to see what I'd been missing. What do I think? Find out in my review of the Chorus Trilogy: Season 11, Season 12 and Season 13. Next, we take a look at my favorite One Punch Man character in Volume 9, while the new arc really builds up steam in Volume 10. I would be concluding my RvB coverage next week, but there's a certain little movie that's coming out that's going to take precedence. Obscure thing. You've probably never heard of it. ^o^ And because it's Christmas the week after that, I figured I'd do some Christmas-themed reviews with some beloved holiday classics. Other than that, we've got more TBP at the ready. Stay tuned.

We return to the world of Erdi with a new generation of heroes and villains in the prologue of The Celestial Kingdom, Volume 2: Earth Angel. There's plenty of blood and intrigue ahead, so enjoy. In the nearer future, we've got reviews of the Chorus Trilogy of RvB coming up. Stay tuned.
