This little blurb almost feels redundant considering I read the manga source just a year ago. Going through this entire thing, it’s basically the same, only a little worse… I think. Let me elaborate on that. Continue reading “Quick Thoughts on Kanata no Astra (TV)”
When I began The Visualist’s Veranda over six years(!) ago, I was very cynical. Longtime followers have heard this story before. I was an edgy dude with not a lot to my name, trying to burst through the scene as an arrogant know-it-all similarly to those who would write long-form epitaphs on the importance of Legend of the Galactic Heroes. As time crawled forward, I was smoothed by the inevitable teachings of reality and college, and my criticism for various art forms followed suit (right?). Watching Kimetsu no Yaiba brings me back to those days of when anime were never good enough for my standards, and while I don’t think I’m that kind of person anymore, the end of the third episode has left me feeling… nostalgic.

I like space. This can mean two things: I like outer space, a popular setting in sci-fi cinema which represents the great unknown, and I like the figurative term “space,” in that I prefer to be alone. Growing into the person I am now, I’ve learned that my desire for solitude has become more selective—I prefer to be away from crowds of strangers, but fully enjoy being around loved ones. This is the difference between me and the star of Ad Astra, Roy McBride, who was raised in a chasm of solitude away from the man who molded him: his father and legendary astronaut, Clifford McBride.

Everyone, this game has exceeded all expectations of mine. Fire Emblem: Three Houses has, at this point, consumed 250+ hours of my life since receiving the game a few days after release. Notice how my blog’s been pretty quiet since late July? Yeah. You all have no idea how much I held back, too. For the sake of not oversaturating the marketplace, I refrained from making a hundred posts on this game—I certainly could have (and still can). A “totally 100% final thoughts on three houses” post has been in the planning stages for The Visualist’s Veranda for weeks, but never came to fruition because, well, my thoughts on the game keep changing!
But this? This is
relatively concrete. I wanted to share a little more about this cute little title by highlighting its characters. Continue reading “My Official Fire Emblem: Three Houses Character Tier List”
“Center of Plot: Oh! Woe is me! No one understands me! I’m sad!
Tohru: I love you for who you are!
Everything is solved.”
I have made the joke many times throughout the course of my blog’s existence, but I always feel the need to highlight that The Visualist’s Veranda began as an anime-themed blog. Prior to last night, I hadn’t watched any anime in over two months. My past self would be amazed at such ineptitude. Continue reading “Early Impressions: Kanata no Astra”
