I read manga and books. I usually read Fantasy, Sci-fi, and Horror. I also read other books or manga that are not within those genres.
Two more weeks for this to come out.
The other day, I watched Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple. It was really awesome and bit of creepy in some scenes.
I wish I could watch it again. I hope it comes out on Blu-ray.
Watched the second episode of Devil's Line. Going to drop it because it feels rushed and lacks some emotion in some areas. The OP and ED are really good though.
Going back to reading the manga of it.
Today I watched the first episodes of Tokyo Ghoul re and Devil's Line. I thought they were great first episodes. I hope the streak continues into future episodes.
Yesterday, I discovered StoryBundle, a pay-what-you-want website similar to Humble Bundle. I decided to try them out because one of the bundles feature A Small Charred Face. Even though I own a physical copy of the book, I decided to pay for it because the copy on the website is DRM free. Plus, some of the other books featured in the bundle looked interesting, and I wanted to read more international books.
I wished I discovered this website sooner because one of the past bundles was the Haikasoru Japan Scifi bundle. Oh well, I hope they put up that bundle again.
Anyway, I hope I can find some time to read these books.

I checked out this book while I was doing my Comixology free trial and the work did not click with me.
The artwork was a bit offputting for me. It wasn't terrible, but I didn't like the art style because of how the facial expression was drawn. Most of the characters share the same goofy looking faces in the panels I read. I don't mind silly facial expressions for a few scenes, but frequently seeing them becomes old.
The main thing that I couldn't stand in this book was the writing. I'm willing to deal with art styles I don't like if the story or writing is intriguing and entertaining (Higurashi and Umineko visual novels for example). Unfortunately, the comic's writing was the weakest point. It tries too hard to be funny and quirky. The worst part would have to be when the writer points out stuff to the reader like this example: "From Wikipedia. You can tell because this looks a lot like a Wikipedia entry." Lines like that example happen a lot in this comic from the panels to the margins at the bottom of the pages. I don't find those funny, and it breaks me away from the plot.
This comic was not for me.
I wonder how the anime will be like compared to the manga.
I'm excited for Tokyo Ghoul: re, Golden Kamuy and Legend of the Galatic Heroes Die Neue These. Full Metal Panic Invisible Victory looks interesting as well.
I read 56% of Chapter 3.
