AniMonday: Attack on Titan

The more I watch this show, the more I feel like there is…I’m not sure this is the right word…corruption within the Military. At the refueling station, the commanding officer, with his troop, decide to leave to “regroup.” That means that the only defense is those soldiers who are more trained in refueling than fighting. And when they bring up the very valid question of, “what happens if the Titans overtake us,” the commander accuses them of possible treason (which would give him the right to kill them) and leaves. I mean…huh.

AniMondays: Attack on Titan

This episode is pretty much dedicated to Mikasa. I’ve heard some talk about how she’s the typical dark, silent anime girl or whatever. Honestly, I still like her. As of this episode, I can relate with her a lot. Obviously not about her lean, mean, killing machine style. But how she reacts to to the world around her.

Kirk and Spock Go to the Movies!

So there are a lot feels I’m having towards the new Trek film and I’m not sure if they’re good or bad yet. But until I sort out my feels I’ll share the shenanigans I got into while waiting for the movie.


Meet my Kirk and Spock paper dolls. This is them getting ready to go get tickets! They’re so excited can’t you tell?



Here they are waiting in line to get into the theater.


And lastly we have them in their comfy seats of popcorn goodness. I would expect more random post with these with these two. They were a lot of fun!

AniMondays: Attack on Titan

Colossal Titan is back, breaking through walls, causing havoc and death and…guess what? This Titan is intelligent. He knows where to strike to take out weapons. He’s not like the mindless Titans that just go looking to eat people. So what does that mean? Why is he different? And how does he keep just appearing and then mysteriously disappearing? Because as Eren goes to try and slice the back of his neck, Colossal Titan is just…gone.

The Hot Cheetos of TV

So once upon a time I (Mel) mocked Steph for liking Teen Wolf. I could not understand how a show about Teen Werewolves could cause her so much pain. Steph, being the brains of the operation, challenged me to watch the show before I made fun of it more. If I didn’t like it after I finished the first season then I could make fun to my hearts content. It seemed fair so I agreed.

Now here’s where the Hot Cheetos come into play. Teen Wolf is like Hot Cheetos. At first it sounds like a terrible idea but you try one. What’s the harm in trying one? Then magically 12 hours have soundly passed, you’ve consumed them all, and you’re filled with pain and regret for ever thinking this show couldn’t hurt you. And yet when another season starts you will consume it the same way.  That’s how everyone eats Hot Cheetos, right?

To be clear, I’m not saying it’s a terrible show. I’m saying it’s terrible for ME! I’m in love with the characters. All of them. (Danny is my fave though! DIMPLES!) I will flip a table if anyone of them die. I totally get why Steph was a ball of emotions. These characters are real, flaws and all. To me that’s what makes a great TV show. Special effects can’t make up for a lack of character depth.

Now if you’ll excuse me I have the all of the second season to catch up on. BRING ON THE PAIN!

Have you ever had this happen to you?

AniMondays: Attack on Titan

It’s been 2 years since Eren and Co enlisted and we learn some more about certain characters. Reiner Braun: both mentally and physically strong, he’s a pretty trustworthy guy.

Armin Arlert: not the strongest or physically capable, but extremely intelligent.

Annie Leonhart: exceptional fighter but doesn’t work well with others.

Bertholt Hoover: lots of talent, little initiative.

Jean Kirstein: skilled with the 3D maneuver gear but kind of a jerk because he’s so blunt all the time.

Sasha Blouse: talented unconventional (hello, she was eating a potato in the middle of their commanding officer’s lecture) which might not work with other’s skills.
