The Venture Bros. is a series I’ve been meaning to watch for a long time now. However, it kept being pushed away because (1) it’s freaking long with already five seasons under its belt and (2) I still have a huge list of anime I have yet to watch. However, since I finished a few series I had in my hard drive (Hagure Yuusha, Maken-Ki, and Moyashimon), I figured I should watch the first season of The Venture Bros. along with Disney’s Gravity Falls. I must say, I got really hooked with both! Though today, I’d be mostly talking about The Venture Bros.
Cry me a river, episode 8!
Well, I just watched the 8th episode of Uchouten Kazoku and I must say, that was one heck of a tearfest. If you’ve been watching or don’t particularly mind being spoiled, well, spoilers up ahead!
If any of you haven’t heard, there’s a new Batman animated TV series currently showing. While this doesn’t surprise no one, since it became somewhat of a habit of milking the good ol’ Batman franchise, from video games, comics, and live-action film (reboot and recast recently with Ben Affleck just a few years removed from a successful trilogy, anyone?). So an animated TV series isn’t anything new, but this new iteration does put new tricks on the table.
I kinda neglected my blog (again) for a whole month. Though not as worse as before when I didn’t touch this for my whole summer vacation. Still…
Anyway, aside from being lazy in terms of writing, I was quite busy with real life stuff! I had to go job hunting and thankfully landed one, which was unfortunately met with a lot of requirements that I had to take care of. Meanwhile, I’ve been busy watching the shows I’ve missed and reading the A Song of Ice and Fire series (which took a huge amount of time) and I’m still at book three. *sighs*
I also had some recent travels and was busy writing a novel I’ve been trying hard to get past the first chapter. I never got the groove to writing the blog till my head was clear from the job hunting part, as I’m too attached to my other hobbies to sacrifice the time allocated for it. But, I secured a job so I guess that’s okay, right? Well, I’m starting next week. *double sigh*
However, I decided to be more committed to blogging. A lot of my other stuff I can’t mostly do at leisure, like travelling for example. Since I’ll be mostly staring at a computer in my job and in my free time, I figured that blogging should be part of my common roster of activities. It’s also a breather from my more literary-driven writings, and might probably get my head in the game in to writing my novel again or a few short stories here and there.
So, with that, I welcome myself again to this blog! I’ve got a lot of material to write about this time, aside from reading some books, I watched a lot of TV shows (mostly anime and cartoons) recently. Haven’t been catching up on my regular comic pull, but I guess I can, once I start getting my salary. Heh. With that, expect a post some time later or tomorrow!
