aot is very good too, very well worth the watch and read even if it does start out as a slow burn

i've been more into live action media than anime recently, i have been watching black sails and am almost done with that - besides that i finally got back to playing witcher 3 and have been watching as much wrestling as i can, both the shows and wrestling have been picking up again a lot, the most so far this year past the whole initial covid era, games i only get when they're on sale for a good price

what about you, what have you been into recently?

the adaptation of it is quite good, if you like the content it covered i recommend reading that particular arc in the manga as well, it easily is the best arc in the entire series and an incredible cat and mouse game, it really is a shame how much the series starts to decline in quality post its first arc

You're welcome (:

Haha in all honesty I don't even know what that genre really means? Iyashikei? And yesss I will definitely get to watching it when I get the chance to!!

And yeah I'm in Japan, I live in a big city.. (unfortunately) my life long dream is to actually live in a secluded area.. something like a countryside where I can have my own farm and live a serene and tranquil life lol.. a bit corny but.. a man can always dream

And Polish is beautiful, I always want to travel to different places and areas, I'm not too keen on staying in one place for a long time... just makes me feel uneasy, I need variety in my life ^^

Thank you for the reply Edaniel, means a lot to me (:

You have a beautiful bio!!!!
Love the way you talked about yourself <3
Definitely going to check out Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru. I also love running and from what you said,.. it seems amazing.
I am also learning Japanese, embarrassing part about is that I actually live here and can barely hold a conversation with anyone... well.. not yet xD
Ciao~

Fortunately I was able to enjoy reading.

The Castle of Franz Kafka. It's a story very similar to The Trial only it's more extensive. Well...Kafka...it's always enjoyed although the main character (agan K) causes me feelings of grief.

The Myth of Sisyphus of Albert Kamus. It surprised me. I loved it. The stranger thing is that i didnt like The Stranger, the author's best know work.


Tess of the d'Urbervilles. An English romantic story, but different from Austen. Its quite tragic. Good book.

Peer Gynt of Henrik Ibsen. I had been spoken ill of this book, but I liked it. It is different from other works by the author, maybe that's why people don't like it. It has touches of fantasy or madness.

Brevary of chaos. It is a philosophy book. It is a very crazy book. The author is very pessimistic. But I still managed to enjoy it.



Now Im reading a book of more than 1000 pages.


Greetings.

Hello!

I was on your Goodreads's profile. You have 57 books read in this year. Wow, that's amazing. I set myself the challenge of reading 18 but I only have read five, hahaha.

Hollow Knight is really great in that aspect. The writing is simple with a pretty polished style and never overwhelms you, keeping dialogues short and sparse, and it takes the "show, don't tell" rule very seriously. There's a lot you can discover just by looking at the world and asking why is it like that, and it's fascinating. It's one of the few games that really left a lasting impression on me regarding its story and world.

Annihilation nailed those moments pretty well. I'm still on a love-hate relationship with Alex Garland movies (my favourite of his was Dredd, which was far more action and fewer brains), but he's one of the few American directors nowadays that's really pushing the medium out of its comfort zone.

I watched Stalker a few years ago and didn't get most of it. I really need to rewatch it now that I'm older, but my attention span has been pretty bad these days.

I felt the same with Ultra Heaven. The plot progression was...weird, to say the least. I have no idea how we even got to that end, but the author probably felt the exact same thing.

Yeah, Shadows House is really interesting, isn't it?! I love how the author manages to balance cute girls with a gradually unveiling dark story without getting too edgy or dumb as it usually happens with this kind of stories. His other manga, Kuro, is great as well and has the same vibe, but Shadows House is just far more interesting. I like how he's slowly establishing this world and its rules without ever sounding too expository and revealing just enough to maintain the mystery.

I could never get too much into Lovecraft. I like what other authors like Robert E. Howard did with his cosmic horror and stuff like Bloodborne and Wakusei Closet, but I enjoyed other contemporary horror writers like Algernon Blackwood and Ambrose Bierce far better than him.

I watched the movie for Annihilation, it was pretty neat. I haven't touched the book but I started reading another book by the same author, City of Saints and Madmen, which is a collection of sorts of weird fiction short stories and other writings about a city called Ambergris. It's pretty out there and a little too obsessed with being meta (don't know about Annihilation), but it's interesting. I'm not a big fan of Catcher in the Rye but I absolutely adore the first part of Franny and Zooey -- btw, I never got to reading the second part. I need to do that soon.

I really need to read Roadside Picnic and other Strugatsky books. It's been on my list forever but I never got to it. Only russian writer I actively read is Chekhov, which is one of my favourites. Do you like him?

Since you liked Neuromancer, you should really check Snow Crash out. It's like Neuromancer, but on steroids: faster, wilder and taking Gibson's ideas even further, and a really interesting incorporation of Sumerian and early Christian religion into the plot. It's probably the most fun I've had with a book.

And hey, Walter Moers! I don't see many people who know him. I'm (very slowly) reading The 13½ Lives of Captain Bluebear, but I'm thinking of putting it aside for now and trying The City of Dreaming Books.

As for other recs, I would recommend almost anything by China Miéville, starting from his Perdido Street Station or The City and the City. I think every book by him is worthwhile in one way or another (with The Scar being my favourite and the loose sequel to Perdido) depending on what you want. He's such a diverse and creative author that he has something for everyone.

Sorry for taking so long to reply, I've been a bit distracted lately and couldn't concentrate to write anything. Been mostly playing games since I can't sit and pay attention to what I'm reading, too.

what about you?
Ilikediffgenres Mar 1, 1:32 AM
hii I like some of ur fav anime

how are you? :)
Satyr_icon Feb 28, 11:04 PM
I see. It's really a shame that so many good manga never see the light of the day around here. I never heard about Kono Manga ga Sugoi, I'm gonna check it out if only to be disappointed that I'll never read most of them haha

Yeah, that one is definitely on my list even though I usually don't care much about books of the same kind as well.
Have you ever read Borges? They are different but at the same time, they have the same vein for wild and imaginative fantasy stories, plus a knack for getting meta (like short biographies of fictional writers). If you like one you're probably gonna enjoy the other. Either Ficciones or Dreamtigers is a good start.

What else do you like reading?
Satyr_icon Feb 24, 9:51 PM
The last volume came out in 2009, so it's one of those "hiatuses" from which it never comes back like Nana or Vagabond. I don't believe there's gonna be anything else since the third volume pretty much concluded the story.

Oh, I see. I do always hear Russia has a pretty big scanlation community. It's a shame the english translation seems to have been totally forgotten.

Yeah, it's been on my mind to watch since forever as it's an anime that "takes place" in Brazil. It looks a lot of fun but I never got around to watching it. I'll probably give it a try once I finish Jojo part 4.

I used to but nowadays I only use an app on my phone to keep track of what I read. Invisible Cities is the only Calvino I've read but I liked it a lot. I've been meaning to read something else by him but my plan to read stack is frightening enough as it is, eh

Hey, thanks! Nice to meet you as well. I really dig your list too, it's always nice to find someone you can consult whenever you're not sure what to read next.

I just finished Ultra Heaven yesterday. It's one of the trippiest and weirdest manga I've ever read, and also one of the best arts I've seen in the medium. The subsequent two volumes aren't as good as the first one, but still, I can't believe I took so long to read it. Judging from your list I think you're gonna like it.

Since you like Aria and Yokohama, you should check Hakumei to Mikochi as well. It has that same nice, soothing feeling of the two.

Btw, I wanted to ask where you read Metamorphose no Engawa and &. I can only find a few chapters online, and I'm not sure they were licensed outside Japan. I started reading Engawa a while ago and there hasn't been any update to this day ):
