October Books to Trick or Treat

Calling my name

catholics-and-halloweenTake out the bats, pumpkins, black cats and all of the candy! ‘Cause Halloween is pretty much here! And since last year I couldn’t make my TBR list, this year I decided to go full on and read as many books as possible.

So this month is all about monsters and things that bump in the night, with one exception which though not about monsters is kind of relevant to October’s celebrations.

Anyhow, without furder ado, here are my picks for this month’s monstrous read:

¡Viva México! 15 de Septiembre.- Mexico’s Independece (Independencia de México)

Diario

CapturaI want to be clear here and explain to those who might not know; we Mexicans don’t really celebrate 5 de mayo.

Yes, it’s a relevant and historical date, we learn at school what happened back then in 1862. But that’s pretty much it, I mean I guess that in Puebla -where the infamous battle took place- they make a bigger deal out of it, but as for the rest of the country…, it’s just more of a commemorative day, there are military or school parades, if that. It’s not necessarily a no-labor day.


Ok, quiero ser y explicarle a todos aquello que tal vez no sepan, que nosotros los Méxicanos no celebramos realmente el 5 de mayo.

Sí, es una fecha relevante e historica, y en la escuela aprendemos sobre lo que ocurrio en 1862. Pero eso es practicamente todo, qiero decir tal vez en Puebla -donde la infame batalla tuvo lugar- sea más importante y tengan una gran celebración, pero para el resto del país…, es solo otro día conmemorativo, hay desfiles militares o escolares, si al caso. No es necesariamente un día no laboral.

Back to School with September Books

Calling my name

35dd2aeccd78625311c5cc11b124b4ccSo, I totally missed the August TBR list, which doesn’t mean I didn’t read plenty of books, just that I didn’t have time to write about it; but now that I seem to have a little more time I´m back with my September list.

And since in my country this month is pretty much about going back to school, well… I decided it was the perfect time to read the books I have that have something to do with it, so…. here we are:

Watch list

Shounen-ai/Yaoi Mangas that Should Definitely be Animes! Pt2.- Border by Kodaka Kazuma

Watch list

Last time, I made a post about how quite honestly compared to yuri or shoujo-ai animes out there, there’s not enough BL -boys love- stories out there, being made into animes, and though that has been slowly, but surely changing -this year we have 3 yaoi animes to look forward to-.

border-1-tonkamThat being said, the thing is that the majority of the stories that are being adapted, aren’t necessarily rich in well… story -baring some exceptions-, and are still mainly in the same BL cliché of having a particularly feminine bottom, a strong, possessive on more masculine top, and the relationship beginning pretty much with plain out rape.

Which is why a while ago I decided to post what I think as BL mangas that don’t necessarily follow this tropes, and I think would work pretty well as animes.

Last time I wrote about Asterisk, a shounen-ai by Morimoto Shuu. So… this time around I decided to go for a yaoi: Border by Kodaka Kazuma

Onto the End of the Line.- Voltron Legendary Defender Season 7 Review

Tvies

voltron-legendary-defender-1-e14549694407951A lot has been happening in the Voltron fandom since season 7 was released, as always via Netflix. So… I decided to give it some time before I wrote down my thoughts, and why not? Rewatch it a couple of times.

Originally, I was intending to post my review a month after season 7’s release, but in the end, there are so many things to discuss and theorize about, that I simply couldn’t wait anymore!

So… did I loved Season 7? Did I absolutely hate it? Well…, my thoughts on it are a little complicated, and here’s why:

Off the shelf

Go Go Power Rangers: Returning to the Grid

Off the shelf

Back in the day, I was a big Power Rangers fan, in fact, scratch that, I was a big Power Rangers fan, probably longer than it’s acceptable for anyone to be nowadays.

I watched almost all of them consecutively, from Mighty Morphing Power Rangers to Power Rangers Dino Thunder, and watched some episodes of Mystic Force, SPD, RPM, and Jungle Fury thrown here and there.power_rangers

Power Rangers became kind of a guilty pleasure to me, which is why it kind of baffles me that I didn’t read this comic ’til about 2 weeks ago.

I mean I knew about its existence, but to be honest it really didn’t pick my interest mainly because I thought I was finally done with all things Power Rangers -with exception of the movie- and… I haven’t been a fan of most of the TV to Comic adaptations, but then… the trailer for Shattered Grid dropped.

So, of course, I had to check what it was all really about and pick up the comic, and in order to have a full understanding about what was happening, eventually read the previous issues, and you know what, it was totally worth it!

Right on the Quintessence.- Voltron Legendary Defender Season 6 Review

Tvies

voltron-legendary-defender-1-e14549694407951It seems like I´m always late to reviewing Voltron Legendary Defenders, and it’s not as if I didn’t watch the season as soon as it was available; it’s just that so many things happened, in and outside of the fandom world. That I couldn’t wrap my head around it.

But…, after watching season 6 for the third time, and with season 7 less than 2 weeks away, I decided why not go ahead and write my thoughts on the season, even though it’s probably too late now.

Anyhow, if I had to describe season 6 in a phrase it would be the “season of payoffs”, or… maybe “the season of the feels!” -I’m still deciding on it-

‘Cause yeah, this season was basically the culmination of everything that has been set up since I’d dare say, season 1, and the feels! God the feels!

Watching or waiting?

Movies to Leap in July! (¡Película para Saltar en Julio!)

Watching or waiting

Well, from what I have gathered, it seems like the whole summer movie season went to April, May, and June; ’cause quite honestly there aren’t that many movies I want to see this month.

So… this time around the list will be pretty short I guess, which after the trip I went on, are actually good news for my wallet, but still!

Anyhow, without further ado, here’s my list.


Bueno, por lo que he podido ver, parece que toda la temporada de peliculas veraniegas se fue en Abril, Mayo y Junio; porque honestamente no hay tantas películas que quiera ver este mes.

Así que…, creo que esta será una lista corta, lo cual imagino despues del viaje que hice, son buenas notivias para mi cartera, pero de todos modos!

En fin, sin más que decir, he aquí mi lista.
