Reading: Ambush. The third in the Sydney Rose Parnell series by Barbara Nickless, and I am hooked. I'm a fan of the modern thriller fiction, and this series is one of my favorites.

Anime-wise, I've been watching Beyond the Boundary. I'm 9 episodes in, and the current score is a 6.5/10. Some of the later episodes made the score drop from a 7/10. Episode 6 was still hilarious, though.

Manga-wise, I finished volume 22 of Claymore. I'm slowly but surely getting towards the end of this wild series. I'll be watching the anime sometime this year, as well.

Also, I saw Detective Pikachu and had an absolute blast.

Checked out a few movies at Blockbuster and enjoyed both of them!

First was Spider Man Into the Spiderverse. I’m not that interested in Super Heroes, but I had a blast with this one. The animation is just too gorgeous for words.

The other was Call Me By My Name. I heard great things about this movie and now I know why. Such a tearjerker.

Just finished up my rewatch of Gokaiger. It's so good and it's very upsetting how dog awful Super Megaforce is in comparison. The final fight is so raw.

Started watching Dragons: Defenders of Berk. I like how while it's still episodic, this series has more of an ongoing storyline running in the background instead of each episode being 100% self contained.

Going to be watching Firefly this month at some point. It was recommended to me a while ago by an old friend, and I never got around to watching it so here I am, getting ready to watch it this month.

Currently reading Great Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe. I picked this up last month, and I just barely touched it. I've read the book in its entirety before, and some of the stories in it, I've read multiple times. Poe is an interesting writer for sure, but I just cannot stay engaged with this book, so I feel like I'm going to be reading this for a while.

Finally got a Netflix sub, so have been working through the shows I couldn't watch before.
Just finished Puella Magi Madoka Magica (New favourite anime! :3), now I'm on season 7 of Once Upon a Time.

Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus: As a big fan of the original Invader Zim series, this movie was absolutely amazing. Considering I just finished watching it like... 5 minutes before this post, just... hearing Zim's classic voice, and the absolute shenanigans that happened were hilarious. Granted, I haven't watched the original Zim in years, and I never watched the full series and only remember some episodes. But this was an absolutely amazing movie. It's on Netflix, so check it out if you want.

After much badgering my brother finally convinced me to binge Attack on Titan with him a few weeks ago. I ended up really liking it, more than I thought I would, and now I'm bummed that we have to wait over a year for Season 4.

I just finished watching The Room for the first time, spoon chucking and all. What an enigma of a movie. It’s fantastic, atrocious, hilarious, and mind numbingly boring at the same time. Like most people, I only suggest watching it with others who participate in the midnight theater antics. Only then is it truly worth watching.

Just watched episode 8 of given.
My heart cannot handle so much in one episode.
This is a phenomenal anime...but can we not have so much drama in one episode? PLEASE?

Since the anime club shut down, I'll have to resort to this thread to post my updates.

Currently, outside of seasonal anime, I'm watching Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V. It's quite possibly one of my favorite spin-offs in the franchise besides the original Duel Monsters and GX. Tsukikage is my favorite character in the series by far.
I'm on episode 138 as I write this, so I only have about 10 episodes to go before I finish. I've heard the finale doesn't live up to expectations (and is one of the worst anime episodes in recent history), but that won't stop me from enjoying the ride.

In terms of reading, I plan to eventually start the first volume of the light novel series So I'm a Spider, So What?, which I made a purchase request at the library for a while back. It's an Isekai series that has been confirmed to have an anime in production for the near future. And, well, as someone who really likes spiders AND Isekai series, I figured I'd give it a shot.

Carmen Sandiego Netflix: Just finished watching the second season. Like the first, it was pretty enjoyable. I'm liking how they're still going to keep the Carmen vs ACME thing from the original - but just in a completely different sense.
