Obligatory “I’m Older Now” Comment!

Monday, August 22nd –
Hello again, my dear Giga-Friends! I hope you are doing well this week. I know a lot of you have already started school again, or are going to start very soon, so I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors. My one tip for college is: Never eat yellow snow.
With that out of the way, Yours Truly has just celebrated his 28th birthday! Yes, I am old. And I feel old. Many of you are probably shaking with anticipation(?) with questions that need answering: What did you get? What did you do? The answer is . . . T-Shirts and nothing! HA! Yes, I AM that lame! I’ve never really been one to celebrate my Birthday and I’m really not sure why. Either way, everyone is usually busy on my birthday with work or family, so I usually just go out to have a nice dinner with my family instead.
My boring escapades aside, I’ve recently gotten back into Zero Punctuation’s videos again. The cynical Aussie who can be deliciously satirical and insanely funny at the same time has recaptured my attention. When I was younger, I absolutely hated him because he hated everything. Now, as I’ve grown older and my tastes have changed, I enjoy his dry humor and appreciate the things we have in common. Namely that we hate everything.
In other news, my buddy David has gotten me to start playing Fate Grand/Order, a mobile game by “Type-Moon” that focuses on strong story-telling and cool characters. I’ve barely just started, as in, I haven’t even pulled my first hero yet. But, it promises to be a fun ride. Specifically because it’s swimsuit season in this game! Woooooooo~!
NOW ON TO ANIME!
Re:Zero is still going strong with its story, and Shokugeki no Souma still holds my heart in its hands. So, that’s nothing new.
I don’t know if I’ve talked about Mob Psycho 100 at all, but I should. By the same creator of One Punch Man, MPO is an amazingly well animated and drawn show of epic proportions. That is to say, it’s weird . . . in so few words. While OPM was about not being able to use your abilities to their fullest, this one is about having those powers but choosing not to use them. It honestly started out as a bland comedy show that really didn’t garner too much attention, but about 3-4 episodes in the show randomly got really good. I don’t want to ruin anything, but I highly suggest getting about four episodes in before you cut yourself off. It’s been getting pretty existential recently, and I love how it can mix comedy with some weird concepts.
Anyway, that’s it for me today my Giga-Landers! I hope you have a great day and an even better week! -J.R
