Book Review: Wuthering Heights

Standard

Okay, so before I get into this review, those who are familiar with my blog posts are probably wondering to themselves: “What the Hell is this guy doing now?” And you’d be right to ask yourself that.

I don’t consider myself to be a voracious reader; in fact, I’m more likely to be a bookworm wannabe. Wuthering Heights is also a story from the 19th century, and has been written about by many people from then to the present, including everyone from Victorian era enthusiasts to disgruntled high school students who are forced to read it for English class. Why would a guy with anime on the brain review this?

Well, hopefully all of this will make sense in the future; but right now, I’ll attempt to dive into my thoughts about this English romance classic.

Great Moments in Summer 2014 Anime

Standard

The Summer season of anime is almost over! But before we wrap up and move on to Fall, let’s revisit some of the great moments of the season from some of the shows you might have watched, and plenty more from shows you haven’t! Like I said in my Funny Moments review, I watch a lot of stuff that doesn’t get a lot of hype as others; and honestly, I prefer it that way. I had a lot of trouble coming up with just a few great moments from all the things I watched; but in the spirit of cutting back, I limited the length from 14 (which is what I would normally do) and compromised at 11 instead.

So without further ado, let’s check out some of the best cheers and tears of the season!

As always, there will be SPOILERS!

Funny Moments in Summer 2014 Anime

Standard

As the summer season of anime is wrapping up, I decided to just go ahead and post this. Why? Because on my personal Facebook page, I collected and documented over 2,000 screenshots of 26 shows I had watched for this entire season! And because I need to practice [some] restraint, I’ve limited my selections on what to share here!

And seeing that in seasons past, my “Great Moments” in anime highlights are all heavily “feel” types, I decided to compile a short list of the funnier moments as well. Click on the following link for the Great Moments in Summer 2014 Anime.

Disclaimer: as a reviewer of the less highly anticipated and otherwise “bad” anime, these compilations do not include [some] of the most hyped shows of the season.

As always, there will be SPOILERS!

Articuno’s energy had been depleted significantly after that attack, but he still soared above us without any loss to his constitution. Gracia’s eyes were wide with tears of her own. She and Munna were safe, but the stony barrier around her had taken a huge hit. Rhyperior’s body was covered with a thick film of ice from the back. It may not have looked like her torso or head was affected, but there was no doubt.

We held our position and prepared for our battle with Articuno. Ina led a handful of warriors and their rock and steel pokémon in throwing stone projectiles at the legendary ice bird. Hanzo’s team of ghost pokémon were commanded to levitate high into the sky to reach him. Okuni’s support squad had very few pokémon who could subdue Articuno, so long as he was flying, but at least Amy was there with her Luxray and Rhyperior to help out.
