Even more cartoon books

Wow more manga opinions nobody cares about.

I finished reading K-On! (けいおん!), K-On! College (けいおん! college), and K-On! Highschool (けいおん! highschool). It’s a fun light-hearted series that I really should have read earlier. The premise is simple, a bunch of high schools girls form a music club and get up to the usual anime antics. Anyway you’ve probably heard of it, and it’s popular for a good reason so go read it!

This month a pre-order I placed months ago for a figurine arrived, along with a couple of others I ordered at the same time. There’s some pictures on my Twitter if you care to see them. Worth it I guess, I’ve got the money. I was surprised nobody I knew passed judgement for gay-ass anime girl figurines.

I also finally got around to watching THE IDOLM@STER MOVIE: BEYOND THE BRILLIANT FUTURE! (THE IDOLM@STER MOVIE 輝きの向こう側へ!). It was decent I guess, but the story was nothing really enthralling. It felt more like they just shoved a couple of episodes of the anime together.

There’s another couple of currently-publishing mangas I’m reading:

My Senpai is Annoying (先輩がうざい後輩の話) is a cute little heart-warming series that’s being published on Pixiv. It’s one of those tsundere almost-romance stories.

Wake up please, Ms. Kusakabe (起きてください、草壁さん) is great if you like sleeping and girls that like to take naps.

I watched Pop Team Epic (ポプテピピック) as it was airing. If you can’t appreciate some really avant-garde surrealist humor you might not like it. I thought it was pretty good. A lot of crazy meta-jokes. When I first heard about it (through physical advertisements in Akihabara!), I’ll admit I had no clue how they were going to make it into an anime. But they did somehow and it turned out pretty decent. They gave these guys 24 minutes to make whatever they wanted, and it turns out it’s 12 minutes of whatever they wanted but twice. Go give it a shot, you might like it.

Apart from that I’ve just been up to the usual stuff: work and counterstrike. Follow my Twitch channel if you like to watch people play video games instead of playing them yourself. I’ve also got a vacation planned in a couple of weeks to Las Vegas/Grand Canyon/the Southwest, so maybe that will be fun.
