Brief Update – Edits and Anime

Been a busy day. (Weekend? What’s that?) Did get some editing done.

Also saw the first ep of “In Another World With My Smartphone.” It’s unabashed fantasy. I see nothing wrong with this. πŸ™‚

Especially since I think Touya actually tried to pull a subtle fast one on the kami by asking for his smartphone. After all, if he couldn’t go back to his own world he might at least send his family messages that he was okay in another….

No such luck, though. But I think he tried.Β  πŸ˜‰

  1. If I had to pick only one thing to bring with me…

    Well, hopefully it would be solar powered, because if not it’s pretty useless. One of the things that amused me about No Game No Life is that the protags actually had solar charging gear for all their various electronic toys that they brought with them to fantasy world.

    1. If I remember right, it’s a solidly you-wished-for-a-smartphone-that-means-it-works sense.

      Which is…actually pretty sensible, and only requires the magical power have the sense of “cellphone” that is “handheld thingie that you can read the internet and stuff on.”

  2. Just found an in-progress series you might find interesting.
    Feathers on the Sand by Carradee, it’s on Ao3 and is currently in three parts. I’ve glanced at the first but only fully read the 2nd and 3rd. Basically it’s a Star Wars Timetravel series focusing on Padme. It might seem a bit slow, but about halfway through the second is when we start getting the perspectives from other characters and that puts the whole story into a whole new light, though the sudden increase in characters is a touch jarring.

    What makes this particular series i n t e r e s t i n g is the amount of depth given to certain topics usually glossed over in the Star Wars series. A Slave-Perspective compared to a Freeborn-Perspective and how the former shares similarities (as well as differences) with Abuse Victims. Language barriers (Anakin’s first language is Huttese, not Basic) even between worlds with a common language. Among a whole slew of others.

    Later on the Carradee starts posting abridged (they mention this specifically) explanations after certain chapters explaining why certain people react certain ways or what caused them to react that way and they’re quite fascinating explorations on a person’s psyche and motives.

  3. If you’re looking for interesting ongoing anime I HIGHLY recommend Re:Creators. The plot and characters are interesting, it’s got some awesome action sequences, and the themes tie everything together well. Also, the soundtrack is gorgeous, as you would expect from Hiroyuki Sawano. It started in the spring, so it’s over halfway done at this point.
