When I first came up for the idea for Thumbstick Mafia, I wasn’t quite sure it was going to work – all I knew was that there was something missing from my gaming experience and after 10+ years of gaming with a men majority friend groups, I decided I needed to know what it would be like to actually have a sisterhood of black and minority women who gamed together.
It was immediately rewarding. I wasn’t falling out of love with gaming like I thought – I needed women to relate to.
As an avid horror fan, I’m almost ashamed that I somehow missed this title. Released in October of 2016, The Monster is a bit hard to put into neat categories. Part horror, part Sci-Fi and mostly hard hitting drama – horror is changing and evolving beyond indie shorts!
There’s been lot of building excitement for the second season offering of Seven Deadly Sins – thankfully I did get into S1 a bit late so I can’t complain about waiting but I would like to take the time to clarify the confusion fellow fans of the show are experiencing today.
Remember last week’s #AnimeMonday where I live tweeted Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of a Holy War? The four episode special that I made everyone watch to prepare for Season 2? WELP that’s your “Season 2”. At least, now you can watch it on Netflix directly instead of your preferred anime streaming site.
There seems to be no official word on the actual Season 2 of Seven Deadly Sins but that doesn’t mean that Signs of a Holy War doesn’t deserve spins. It really was a great OVA four episode special and the story takes place about a year after the events of S1 so you are able to catch up on your faves and learn a quite a bit about the lore.
It’s still required watching if you’re into the series – it is not four filler episodes.
I’m a bit disappointed but I should have known, so I’m sorry for joining in on the S2 hype without following my instincts and doing some more research.
Next week’s #AnimeMonday post will be announced since it will no longer be S2 of Seven Deadly Sins.
Since this was this past Monday’s #AnimeMonday I will go ahead and link the Live Tweet threads. Episodes 1-2 | Episode 3-4
It took fifteen years for me to recognize you and another fifteen to try to forget you. I buried you in my work, duty and vices but I was never sated. You were my dream and I couldn’t conjure anything better.
We tried throughout the years to grab snatches of each other but we were always unsuccessful. The timing was never right. Our feelings never in the same place. We’d taken turns feeling abandoned and betrayed.
But we did love.
Lives built apart from each other started to seem like prisons and we found each other again. Waded through the pain and rose above it. Determined to know happiness. You, hesitant. Me, unsure.
