I’ve had go-live command center support for the past 2 and a half weeks, so it’s been hard finding time to post anything here, but packages are always fun!
Since I typically wait for publisher sales on RightStuf to order, I am catching up this time on Sacred Beasts, Haikyu, and Twin Star Exorcists, with new volumes of Food Wars, Yona, and One Punch Man that are higher on my list. I don’t particularly have any exciting commentary on these volumes, so I suppose I’ll chat about other things.
I am almost caught up on the Index novels that have been released in English, except one just came out this week so I’ll have to get it with my next Yen Press order D: after I’m caught up there, I’m not sure if I want to start reading Re:Zero or Accel World next. Re:Zero has the advantage of only being a couple volumes to be caught up, but Accel World I’ve owned for far longer so I should really read it haha. Alternatively, I also have a bunch of western books to read, like The Way of Kings, Newt’s Emerald, the Rithmatist, and Unseemly Science. I also have a bunch of video games I need to play, first and foremost Final Fantasy XV.
Granblue Fantasy’s 3rd anniversary, titled “3rd Birthday,” began a few days ago. It features a free daily 10-pull, and it’s even during a legfest! Unfortunately, my main account has gotten absolutely nothing aside from a light carbuncle, while a bunch of my alts have gotten neat things like Orchid and dark Zeta and Shiva. Blargh. I also accidentally sold 4 Yggdrasil Crystal Blades today >_< should really have switched the language back to English instead of assuming I knew what all the buttons meant. The funny thing is I actually do know the characters for "sell," I was just going quick and not reading lol.
The Spring 2017 anime season starts in a month too! There hasn't been any single standout show this season, but a lot of solid ones. Blue Exorcist is great, having backtracked to adapt the manga more closely. Kobayashi's Dragon Main and KonoSuba season 2 are awesome as well. However, I'm looking forward to the Granblue anime, and I'll have to start looking into what all is airing next season.
