March Books to Welcome Spring!

Calling my name

So… once again I´m a little late with my TBR list for March, as well as my February book reviews -and I was doing so well!-, but in my defense, well… I got nothing, I mean sure, I´ve been a little busy but in reality, I´ve just been catching up on some series and animes.

Anyhow, back to the list, since in March we basically celebrate the International Woman´s Day, Water Day and Poetry Day?; and I usually like to have a theme, it shouldn´t be a surprise that I tried to find books related in some way to this celebrations.

Therefore…, with nothing else to say, here we go:

What the Quiznak?.- Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 5 Review

Tvies

voltron-legendary-defender-1-e14549694407951Awesome action, warfare, family, politics, feels! and freaking cliffhangers!
Those are the words that I´d use to describe Voltron: Legendary Defender -VLD- Season 5, which just premiered this Friday.

As you might remember, not too long ago I finally decided to give VLD a go, and I absolutely loved it!, so I was more than thrilled when I saw that Season 5 would premiere on March 2nd.

Now reasons for loving Voltron I´ve got plenty, just as I mentioned in my previous post, but… Did season 5 live up to the hype? Well…, the short answer is yes! It totally did! And here is why:

My Classics

Hitorijime my Hero.- ´Cause Everyone Wants a Hero

My classics

posterAs some of you might already know due to my anime review on Super Lovers, I quite enjoy Boys Love -BL- stories, be it yaoi or shounen-ai anime and manga.

But though I truly enjoy this genre, truth is that more often than not the anime adaptations that are made tend to disappoint me -beering some exceptions of course-, and that´s mainly because all of them tend to follow the same tropes. Forceful possessive seme, reluctant feminine uke, some nonconsensual sexual advances, etc.

So… for a time there, I distanced myself from the genre -at least in the anime form- until… Hitorijime my Hero came along.

So… what makes this anime different?

Why Voltron Legendary Defender is more than a Kids Show

Why not

voltron-legendary-defender-1-e14549694407951You know what´s the best thing about getting into a series late on? Particularly a Netflix one?
Not having to wait months for a new season!

So…, yeah basically a month ago, I finally decided to make use of my Netflix subscription and watch some of the Netflix show that I have been meaning to watch but for some reason, I haven´t, and… among them there was Voltron!

So… yeah, at the beginning I was a little unsure ´cause while I have been a huge fan of “kids series” like Phineas & Ferb, Star vs the Forces of Evil, Gravity Falls, Miraculous Lady Bug, etc., there have been some others that… have made me wonder what the heck are kids watching and learning these days -and man does that make me feel old-.

But in the end… watching the promo and learning that some of the creative team behind The Legend of Korra were also behind these series… well I had to give a chance.

And I´m actually glad I did! I won´t say that Voltron Legendary DefendersVLD– is the best-animated series out there, ´cause there are plenty of awesome series and it does start kind of slow, but what I will say without doubt is that the series does have a lot of attention to detail, it´s really well written, has awesome animation, heart and doesn´t dumb things down.

Movies to say Goodbye to the Winter (Películas para Despedir el Invierno)

Watching or waiting

Well, January is finally over, and there are actually a bunch of interesting movies that I want to watch this month, though… not so much money, therefore… even though there are plenty of movies that I want to see at the cinema, I had to cut my list down.

So, once more, here´s the list of movies that I intend to watch immediately at the cinema and the ones that… will have to wait a little longer.

Note: Remember I live in Mexico, so these are Mexican release dates

 

Bueno, Enero finalmente ha terminado, y de hecho hay varias películas que me interesa ver este mes, aunque… no tengo tanto dinero, por lo tanto… aunque hay muchas películas que quieo ver en el cine, tuve que reducir mi lista.

Así que, una vez más he aquí las películas que pretendo ver inmediatamente en el cine y…. las que debere esperar un poco más para ver.

Nota: Recuerden que vivo en México, por lo tanto estas son fechas de estreno mexicanas.

Movies to Start the Year! (¡Películas para Empezar el Año!)

Watching or waiting

January sucks! I mean my birthday is in January and I like the weather and all, but as far as movie releases go -at least in my country-, it´s the worst month.

And what´s worse, is that I have 2×1 all month, and… no movies to watch, so I thought about skipping this but… in the end decided to give it a go, so here we are.

¡Enero apesta! Quiero decir mi cumpleaños es en Enero y me gusta el clima y todo pero en cuanto a películas -al menos en mi país-, es el peor mes.

Y saben que es lo peor, tener todo el mes al 2×1 y… nunguna película que ver, así que pense en saltarme la lista pero.. al final decidi intentarlo, asi que… aquí vamos.
