Loosely based on manga of same name by Tsugumi Ohba, and Takeshi Obata

I am a fan of manga, which I read back to back. I loved the anime pretty good too, thou manga was still better. I even watched those fairly weird movies. Heck, they were absolutely watchable. I think they even aired on our native television, at least a couple if not all of them. So now I await this American production, with hope, and healthy dose of fear.

One naughty smart-ass Death God (Shinigami) “accidentally” dropped his book onto the Earth. The same notebook in which you can write down a name (if you know the person’s face too*), and, if you’re feeling adventurous, the way of death… And they die. Ryuk (Ryuuk) was curious to see what might happen if this notebook ended up in human hands. To his utter joy the notebook ended up in angsty, and righteous hands of a young adult, a guy from Seattle (previously¬†known as Light Yagami from Japan), so the project “let’s see what happens” has started well!

*There’s a power that allows you to know the name if you see a face, but that power costs…

Summary: Death Note, The Wolf Among Us 2, and Oscar Wilde

Eh, alright, I’ve been having real rough couple of weeks. Depression kicked my ass hard, and just some general bad things keep happening all over. Like my kettle broke (I fixed it, but I was real worried for a good hour), grandma had a bad spell, my sleep got all messed up, where I’d wake myself due to whiny noises I’d make in my sleep, and so on and on. But I can’t really say all things are bad either.

For one, there’s a lot of great previews, like trailer/teaser for [Death Note] (as my friend said, the actor who plays Light doesn’t seem to know what’s acting like, but otherwise it might still work), and trailer for [Full Metal Alchemist].

Netflix did release [Castlevania] at last, and I think I skipped writing about it, because I was so bummed out, but yes, I’ve already watched all 4 episodes, that make under two hours of goodness. No, I have not played all the games, and I would love to, but 2D side-scrollers are often too hard for me, ever since I’m like 20 years out of the skill range (no, really, I’m sure every kid can beat those games, but not my dumb ass). I have two newer ones on Steam, and I’ll come around to playing those. So as someone with minimal knowledge, I’ll say this: it’s easy to follow, and it’s amazing.

Then there’s [Cyberpunk 2077] update, where they talk about the classes: rockstars, journalists, etc. Great, guys, can we maybe get the game before 2077 tho? Because you telling us for 5 years how it’s going to be groundbreaking is kinda pointless. Much like my grandma claiming those shoes are brand new, never worn, and expensive. But they’re 25 years old, and for less you can get better at any shop now, you know?

Best of all were the news on [The Wolf Among Us 2], that game was something epic, I played it over, and over, and when I felt stressed at work, I’d just turn on the intro screen, and allow that to be my bg music. The neon lights, clouds of cigarete smoke, wonderful music, good story, and superb characters are all I want right now. And Telltale must be my fav games in general.

Yesterday I cleaned my little corner up, making everything a little bit worse, but at the same time, it’s progress towards making it a little bit more usable space-wise. I’ve stacks, and stacks of written material, books I wrote, or am still writing, translations, studies, literal studies data, book reviews. And then hundreds upon hundreds of paintings. So I shoved things around a bit.

As a reward, or so I feel like Universe might have wanted to reward me, friend gave me a cup today, a nice tall white mug with Oscar Wilde quote to it. She had a few, showed me, and said I will probably like this one, pointing at it, and I did. She merely guessed I might like Wilde, and she could not have been more right.

With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” – Oscar Wilde

All I’m missing right now is freedom. ‚̧
