    It's hard finding clips that don't spoil it, but I can say: There will be crying, but there will also be corgis.

    I've pretty much stayed away from Cartoon Network a few years ago when Teen Titans Go completely wrecked the channel. I've missed out on a lot of cartoons since then.

    Can't watch any of them on a streaming service as I don't have any.

    So DC Fandome happened and we got a look at a lot of stuff.

    Two different games (Suicide Squad: Kills the Justice League and Gotham Knights (I could be wrong with the later name, I don't care to look it up again)) where so far we see Superman be evil and Tara Strong voicing Harley again and I guess they have to go out and kill Superman while the later is Batman has just died and all of the Bat children need to come to the rescue of the city.

    Movie wise we got

    Snyder Cut Justice League Trailer - Darkseid looks like crap, like CG usually isn't a big deal, but after just watching Cats I'm in the mood to harp on bad CG and when you look at Thanos and compare the two he definitely looks bad. Oddly the movie looks like it has promise and yet looks bad at the same time. I'll probably get it on DVD if it ever comes out for it. There are so many random snippets one could talk about here, but they go by so fast all you can really talk about is that the scene exists and not much else. The movie still looks grey for no reason.

    Wonder Woman 1987 (Wonder Woman 2) - This trailer didn't look great. An SNL cast member as Cheetah seems like terrible casting and the motivation we know so far of why she's bad seems just as terrible. There is a cool shot of Wonder Woman swinging across lightning bolts in the sky, not sure why she's not flying and the idea is cool but it's stupid.

    THE Suicide Squad - Yes the capitalization is necessary as it seems the title is required to make it sound like the last movie is a mistake and this is the real squad. We have a lot of new characters and odd ball villains in this one, like Polka dot Man. We didn't see a whole lot about the story, it was just the director and the cast going over some minor details and how this will be "the biggest movie ever" kind of thing. After Suicide Squad I don't have hope for this movie.

    Black Adam - We see The Rock as the hero, but only in an animatic, while he spits exposition about the synopsis of how he came to be. Not really much to see or talk about here.

    Batman - The vampire boy Edward looks alright as Batman, but we'll see how well he does to judge. Looks like the movie's villain is Hush, a different version of the Riddler. This trailer and Justice League both have a somber version of a song playing during it, which made them feel a little samey. The brief beat down scene is good, but the Batmobile seems a little strange.

    So I'm actually watching a western animated show for once. So far The Owl House has been pretty good. Pretty good gags, nice group of characters. A bit...grosser, than I expected though. Recognize some voices too. Eda of course is Wendie Malick. The voice of Amity is the same actor as Katara in Avatar (which I don't remember if I mentioned here that I watched now that it's on Netflix, Katara was my favorite character). And heard Billy Kametz (Naofumi in Rising of the Shield Hero) in a one-off character. Will keep watching to see how it goes, though I'm bad at binging and I can't seem to watch more than a couple episodes of something at a time. Plus I still have to watch the new Psych movie.

    I've heard good things about Owl House, haven't watched it myself, and I still have to watch the first Psych Movie. Had it recorded for years just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    As with other Disney shows they've got the pilot on Youtube. And a lot of the other episodes, but you didn't hear that from me, yarr.



    Probably my least favorite episode, kind of in the MLP:FIM pilot ballpark of "mainly serves to introduce the cast." But if you're not sold on it by Enchanting Grom Fright, you'd be alone in that. I love the character growth we see in characters like Amity, Willow, Luz, and Eda the most about it.

    Finally cleaned my computer screen from all the years of dust and soda spots on it and damn does it make a difference. I barely recognize some websites without spots all over them.

    Alright, hit 15,000 words written for my book and I'm sure there will be cutting of the fat eventually down the road.

    I had previously mentioned the S10 Zecora arc and we've got a preview! https://www.equestriadaily.com/2020/...ed-for-my.html Looks interesting to me so far. New characters and a new pony race, "abada."

    Looking at what "abada" means they seem to have gone with a "unicorn rhino" based of what wikipedia is showing. Considering the two horns that does seem to be the case.

    Very nice. What's the book about?
    The general plot is that a person bursts forth from the inside of the moon and as he falls various parts of his personality (I'm calling them Facets, like one facet of your personality) and he has to get them back. He lands on a planet with magic where anyone with halos/horns (so there are human angels/demons) have access to it. He has his own "magic", but no halo nor horns, where he can control his body perfectly (learning how to do everything over time as he gets those pieces of him back.)

    Really I'd like it to be an analogy of the emotional problems that someone can face and what would happen if those pieces of you were living their own life. Would they make the same mistakes, would they do things you never would, and so on. For example with his own fear I'd like to think that he/she would not be afraid to go for anything, using their fear to push them forward rather than it holding them back, but eventually it leads to it hunting down the main character hoping to kill him before the opposite happens. Nothing to fear but fear itself and for Fear (not its name) it would be the main character, not wanting to go back and never living.

    Many of these things being my own experiences and how I've been emotionally stunted my whole life and how I've been dealing with them.

    She-Ra? Emotionally devastating. Owl House? Emotionally devastating. Infinity Train? Emotional devastation, all aboard the pain train. Good thing I've still got Amphibia for light hearted frog-isekai goodness!



    Nope, crying again. D: IDK if MLP:FIM defrosted my cold, dead heart or I'm just drawn to suffering.

    That's when you know a show is good, when it can make you feel and entertain you. I'll finish She-Ra when they put the last season on DVD.

    I'm still on episode 15 of Owl House. I've been really sick this week and haven't really done anything at all. Finished Clockwork Planet which I loved, but haven't been able to watch anything since all I wanna do is sleep. Which I did through most of Monday Night Football, so you know it's bad.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Just watched episode 16. Past couple episodes definitely got some feels to em.


    That's an interesting thought though Power. I won't say that nothing hadn't gotten me emotional before, but recently I definitely get super teary over a lot of stuff. It doesn't help that I go out of my way to find the stuff that does it the most. Your Lie in April? As advertised. AnoHana? Just kill me now. A Place Further than the Universe? Well, there's a pattern here. But then there's the stuff you wouldn't expect it to happen, but it does. The K-On ending destroyed me. ReLIFE? The OVA was soul crushing, but even before that, nothing more relatable than when Rena says "why won't you let me give up?". New Game? Mostly harmless but season 2's ending is pretty hardcore. Side note, hope we get another season, the manga so far has been really good past what has been animated. And then there's Yuru Camp, which is wholesome beyond wholesome, yet somehow I get emotional during seemingly innocuous moments. And finally, Tamayura, which has me in tears almost every episode. I don't even know why. It's such a beautiful show.

    Got a new computer this week and boy does WoW run smooth. I no longer have to wait 2 minutes just to load in and another 5 minutes just for the world to load so I don't run into invisible walls.

    Amen. With my new computer playing WoW is not just faster but with the higher resolution the difference was like putting on glasses for the first time. I thought WoW textures just were blurry whenever you looked at them too closely.

    I had a similar experience. Those invisible walls always ticked me off.

    Welp, I got suckered into Genshin Impact. Except it's super fun. Movement is very Breath of the Wild, so you can just go exploring. And the game rewards you for doing so. You have an adventurer's level, which determines your progression and your ability to ascend to certain levels. Then you have your individual character (and weapon) levels. You get things just for roaming around and finding things, doing puzzles out in the wilderness, and alter on commissions and leylines. I completely forgot about the main quest and just went off and did stuff. And it seems like the side quests never end too. I really love just exploring and feel like I'm advancing just doing so. the gacha system is, well, there. It sucks not getting the characters that might be better for you, but eh. I still got a good team. Honestly weapons so far have been the rougher one to roll. Buncha three-star stuff, I feel like it's not worth to level them if I can find better. Really like the aesthetics of Xiangling, and Noelle kicks ass. Being able to switch characters when needed is nice I haven't been able to kill so much time at once in a game in awhile. Really makes me feel bad I started Yu Yu Hakusho and am kind of neglecting it.

    As for work, lot of mask-related things that make me hate all of humanity. Could go on forever, but it's not anything you probably haven't heard before.
