Aniwriter Update #5: Hiatus Accomplishments and Future Plans
Welcome, weebs and authors alike, to another update.
It’s been about two weeks now since I’ve gone on hiatus, and it has been great. I’ve had a lot more time to relax since taking a break, and it’s allowed me to focus more on some of the things that I’ve wanted to do. So, I thought I would use this post as a way to catch you all up on what exactly I’ve been doing.
Playing Dragon Quest 9: Sentinels of the Starry Sky
Dragon Quest is one of those games that I started a while ago and just never really got around to finishing. As such, I started a whole new play through, and it’s been going relatively well. Honestly, I’m not sure whether it’s the pathing I took around the map or not, but the enemies after a certain point in the game get pretty ridiculous. Even having four characters in my party doesn’t protect me from just getting randomly crit by an enemy just walking around.
Still, it is a super fun game, and I can’t wait to finally finish it.
Do you ever get that feeling that a show was just made specifically for you, or at the very least it speaks to a certain idea that you can understand because you know people who are in somewhat similar situations? Yeah, that was me with Re:Creators, which has become one my favorite shows that I’ve watch this year.
Admittedly, sometime around episode four, I was ready to drop the show entirely. The first episode was fantastic, but episode two, three, and the first 20 minutes of episode four felt a bit lacking. Then, when the reveal at the end of episode four happened, which I won’t spoil, the show takes not a fairly drastic turn.
I’ve probably said it one too many times already, but Re:Creators soundtrack is absolutely phenomenal, and Hiroyuki Sawano deserves a lot of credit for putting together a great collection of very fitting musical pieces for the show. Overall, it was fantastic.
Future Endeavors: Made in Abyss
Ever since I got ahold of my mom’s Amazon Prime account, I’ve pretty much been going through there catalog of exclusives that I’ve been wanting to watch. I started with “The Great Passage” not to long ago, then of course “Re:Creators,” and now I plan on watching Made in Abyss, which I am super excited about. The amount of good things that I’ve heard about this show honestly makes me wonder why it didn’t beat out My Hero Academia at the anime awards. (JK I know exactly why My Hero Academia won). Definitely excited to start it soon though.
Also, before I end this post, I wanted to inform you that I will more than likely be on hiatus for about another two weeks or so, and I plan on spending my last week working on posts so I can come back better than ever! Anyway, I will see you all soon.
