Review: Sacred, Vol. 1 (Manga)

At Zenkaikon this year, I had the pleasure of meeting Lizbeth Jimenez, the author of the manga Sacred. I was first attracted to her booth because of the artwork hung around it. She creates anime style artwork that’s both adorable and creepy. It’s exactly my aesthetic. I decided to pick up volume one of Sacred because of it.Continue reading “Review: Sacred, Vol. 1 (Manga)”

Kingdom Hearts III: The Best of Times and the Worst of Times

Like many people, I’d waited almost thirteen years to play Kingdom Hearts 3. Technically, you could say that I’ve been waiting since 2012, when I beat Dream Drop Distance. But thirteen sounds more impressive, and it’s been that long since Kingdom Hearts 2 came out in Japan. And ever since then, we’ve all hoped toContinue reading “Kingdom Hearts III: The Best of Times and the Worst of Times”

Review: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel had me within the first scene. Not many shows can hook a viewer within seconds. However with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel the humor and heart of the story comes forth in those first few seconds. Mariam Maisel has it all. She has two children, a apartment with an elevator man, lovingContinue reading “Review: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”

Review: Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

  I like weird movies. I like magic, dragons, faeries, and mysteries. I also enjoy period pieces and anything that can suck me in and not let go. You will find much of this in Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell on Netflix. I was just searching for anything random to watch and stumbled upon thisContinue reading “Review: Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell”

Review: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

I have a confession to make. I devour a good love story. However, I’m not talking about a love story the way you think I am. Sure The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society ends in a love story and that makes you think the whole point of the movie was for Juliet toContinue reading “Review: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”
