Cyber Monday Things That Make Me Sad
And EVERYONE I know is Watching One Punch Man!

Monday, Nov. 30th –
Hello again, my Giga-Landers! I hope you are partaking in the sweet, sweet Cyber Monday deals happening right now! I sure as hell am! For nerds like myself, this day is a great way to shop, and not get mauled or killed like, say, on Black Friday. There are a lot of tempting offers out there, especially for someone who wants to upgrade their computer, like Yours Truly. But, alas, it isn’t that simple my Giga-Friends. Aside from other bills to pay, and not knowing (or researching) about the best products or there for computer gamers like myself, there is also a matter of the “One Month Rule” my friends and I have set in place. No buying things for yourself one month before your birthday or Christmas. . . I’m sure they’ll forgive just one or two minor purchases, right? Papa Bear needs a new graphics card!
Aside from the awesome money saving deals happening right now, we just passed Thanksgiving. I hope all of you found something to be thankful for and/or had a boatload of turkey this holiday. So much turkey in fact, that you’ll be making sandwiches until Christmas! It really is a special holiday where we come together to think about what makes us grateful for our lives. I’m just happy to have a family to spend it with. And also to have a family that smoked a turkey that was darn delicious! Either way, I hope you had a great day!
NOW ON TO ANIME!
I recently found out that all of my personal friend are watching One Punch Man. I’d like to thank myself for that, but my friends actually introduced this phenomenon to me in manga form quite a while ago. So, I can’t take ALL the credit. It’s just astounding to see the overwhelmingly positive response the anime is getting despite being nearly unknown for some time now due to its place on one of Shounen Jump’s off-shoot serializations. Can’t say I’m not loving every second of it though!!
Another phenomenon this season is the lack of quality shows, personally. I tried watching several shows from the Fall lineup, but most of them ended up being disappointingly dull or monotonously stereotypical in how they doled out the tropes. Hell, two of the shows are the exact same thing! Who let that crap fly by on the anime radar!? Anyway, I’m glad just to have the four shows I’m watching now, which are: One Punch Man, Iron-Blooded Orphans, Noragami, and Ushio and Tora.
Anyway that’s it for me today, my Giga-Friends. I hope you have a great Monday, and am even better week . . . especially after that long weekend. . .
P.S Maybe I won’t be so superficial next week. Maybe!
