This obviously means I don't have as much to talk about as I did before. Whatever I had to say on Friday, I've forgotten. I know a TON of stuff happened, since that was the day of the parade, yet I don't really remember what it was I wanted to blog about there. When it comes to Saturday, I feel I had more to blog about than just the anime, but since I don't remember, I'll give what we watched. We ended up watching the first episode of Puella Magic Madoka Magica (or whatever the full title is), but my siblings couldn't trudge through it, in spite of knowing it gets better.
We considered leaping into Guilty Crown, Baccano was mentioned but thrown out, Parasyte similarly wasn't put out, the second season of Psycho Pass was mentioned yet not brought up as a strong candidate, Higurashi was mentioned but rejected, so instead of them, we ended up watching a different anime-off-of-a-visual-novel. (Well, prequel one, anyway.) In this case?
Fate/Zero. Which I had heard of (and the main series, FateStayNight), but knew very little about other than it involved magic and swords and whatnot. Each one of us thoroughly enjoyed it, so the experience was good one, and we might get to watch more episodes next week. (We can only watch it when my mom and dad are away for the weekend.) This did mean, of course, I couldn't watch movie night, but I got to finish watching Clue for the first time ever at least. And having seen it, I can say there was NOTHING in that movie that was bad, whatsoever. It was through and through a perfect flick, 100%. Plus, as a mafia player, I can say that I did have an appreciation for the whodunnit style.
It was just an, overall, just plain simple fun movie, which knew what it was doing. Precise elements, good implementation of the board game, it's just about the best possible way to preserve the feeling of the game it's based on, including the multiple endings bit. Each of which you can pick up foreshadowing for! Just...amazing, and an excellent way to have started that Saturday.
Not much to report about today, though.
