On Our List: July 2014

I started watching the supernatural horror series Hemlock Grove during my last semester in college, and seeing as it was a short made-for-Netflix series with 13 episodes in the first season, I blew through it fairly quickly. Season 2 was just released on the 11th, and so far I’m loving it. All the characters are in new places that are different from where we last saw them in season 1, and for the most part, they’re in worse shape. It’ll be interesting seeing how the main two protagonists, played by Landon Liboiron and Bill Skarsgård, deal with the obstacles and mysteries that surround them this season, and how they will (if they ever) repair their friendship that was pretty badly damaged last season. I’m only on episode 5 as of writing this but so far, so great.”

While I’m checking out Free!-Eternal Summer and the Sailor Moon reboot, I decided to check out Zankyou No Terror.  There’s only one episode so far and I’m already excited about the next one.  Directed by Shinichiro Watanabe (of Cowboy BebopSamurai Champloo, and Space Dandy fame) the show is about two teenagers carrying out terrorist attacks in Tokyo.  After enacting a plot, they save a fellow schoolmate of theirs.  Unfortunately for her, she’s now an accomplice.  With great animation and music by Yoko Kanno, I’m really curious where this series will go.

I have three words for you: supernatural romance novels.  I’ve been reading Rebecca Zanetti’s Dark Protectors series and I’m not even sorry.  Though I may have gone about it out of order, I’m currently on my fourth book out of the series, which is actually the fifth book, but I’ve only read books 6, 2, 5.5, and now 4.  Zanetti has created an interesting universe and mythology for the other species that she features in her novels.  I mean, yeah, there’s a ton of sex, but there are also a ton of battle scenes, and it’s overall a very supernaturally-focused romance series that’s pretty fun and an easy read.

Don’t let the squishy hero and bright scenery fool you; Pushmo World is brilliantly maddening. The gameplay mechanic starts relatively simple: pull complex shapes along a horizontal plane, create platforms to jump upon, and reach the top. The motivation? Children are trapped inside the puzzles and must be freed! Once you’ve figured out the basics, Pushmo World becomes complicated with space-bending ladders and switch mechanisms. Gamers can create their own puzzles to upload for others to try out. I’ve been playing on the WiiU and time has been relatively brief, but I’m looking forward to trying out some community puzzles and creating my own as well!
