It’s hard for me to explain why I didn’t watch as many dramas last year, but I certainly started a ton and with all this extra time (lol) I’m finally getting around to finishing them just now. I also kind of, sort of, started watching anime again. The only drama that really captured my heart was Rescue Me 2. Rescue Me was already so good, but this season — if you can even call it that, the only thing it has in common is “religious” cults and Jo Jae-yoon — had levels.

With less than 4 months left in the year (lolllll), so far I’m on track to finish more than 10 dramas this year so… that’s something. Watch this space for more updates 🤪

Them (good) changes.

HOT TAKES

  • Reno makes me feel 15 and obsessed with Advent Children again (hey, Rude!)
  • Trailer is very choppy and frenetic
  • It’s not turn based :( I love turn based games because it gives me time to come up with a strategy and lose less, lol. Of course not every real time battle system is bad (Kingdom Hearts remains one of my favorites), but I guess I’m just used to the slow life.
  • TIFA (I wish she had her AC look, but whatever. Maybe DLC)
  • Why is Cloud not wearing a dress
  • Don Corneo = Mark Hamill!!

I’ve been avoiding most of the trailers for this game because I want to maintain the surprise, but I couldn’t help it this time. Overall it looks great and I’m happy that this will be my first opportunity to play Final Fantasy 7… ever!

SPRING ’19

This will be pretty brief, as I haven’t been watching a lot of dramas lately and I thought it would be a bit much to not have anything for two straight seasons. (Really gotta start writing about dramas as I watch them…) But I’ve been really into k-dramas lately, though!

Slight spoilers for Misty. Other dramas mentioned: The Banker, dele, Cold Case 2, Trap, Touch Your Heart, Should We Kiss First.
