Been a very long time since I’ve posted. Let’s see, I got a Crusader to lvl 70 in 2 days when Season 4 started and kind of lost interest after a couple weeks… got as high as Greater Rift 52, I think? The grind just got too much to maintain interest. Summer anime has come and gone, and another season starts soon, along with the American TV schedule. I also started playing Atelier Meruru again, marathoned Arrow season 3, and went to 4 Battle for Zendikar prerelease events, going 3-0-1, 2-1, 3-1, 2-2, pulling Gideon, Drana, awakening Time Warp, Undergrowth Champion, promo Ob Nixilus, and 3 new dual lands, one being a promo. Lots of stuff happened!
Last week included the pilot for Blindspot, a new NBC show starring Jaime Alexander. It was decent, although Jaime’s character was literally the only one worth watching, in my opinion. Apparently io9 felt the male lead was also interesting, but he was preeeetty lame to me. We’ll see, it’s not-horrible so far, so I’ll see if it retains my interest. Considering the other shows I’m excited to watch this season (Agents of SHIELD, The Flash, Arrow, iZombie, Person of Interest sadly got pushed back I think), it might be easily dropped. I also want to check out Limitless and Heroes Reborn, just see if anything is worth picking up.
In the anime world, coming up is Heavy Object, a light novel adaptation written by Kamachi Kazuma of Index/Railgun fame. I was very impressed with Iuchi Maiko’s music in Railgun S, so I’m very excited to see what she does for Heavy Object. Other than that, most of the other shows I’m watching are sequels or continuations: Owarimonogatari, K: Return of Kings, Noragami Aragato, Is the order a rabbit? 2, Haikyuu 2. There are a couple LN adaptations I’m going to check out, but the primary one aside from Heavy Object is Chivarly of a Failed Knight, a series I’m highly enjoying the manga adaptation for and an interesting series in how it defies a few common LN conventions.
Anyway, we’ll see how long I can keep up the new Magic phase, whether I actually finish Meruru, and countless other burning questions you readers have, I’m sure.
