The Day – 7-29-30
Had a pretty quiet day yesterday which allowed me to get back on track with my writing. In the morning I finally posted my unboxing video for the first two books of The Portal Wars Saga to my Facebook page. If any of you want to take a look, here’s the link. https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=619657832278917
After lunch I made it to my writing desk around 1:30. I managed 5 pages, which isn’t bad.
For my evening entertainment, I watched the new Goblin Slayer movie. For some reason they decided to make a movie that covers the events of Book 5 rather than making a second season that would cover the next four books. Since this story pretty much stands on its own, that actually makes a lot of sense.
Goblin Slayer Movie Review
I’m not going to pretend I’m not already a huge fan of this series. I’ve read every Light Novel released so far and am eagerly awaiting the next one that’s to be released next month. I also watched the entire first season of the Anime, which was awesome.
With all that out of the way, let’s talk about Goblin Slaying in the snow. The movie is set in the frozen north. Goblin Slayer and his companions are asked by the Priestess they helped out in River Town to rescue a noble girl captured by goblins. Of course, they accept. I won’t spoil it for those of you that haven’t seen or read what happens, but suffice it to say many goblins die in creative ways. I think that’s some of the series’s appeal, seeing how many different ways they can kill the nasty things.
Anyway, this movie gets two thumbs up from me. If you have Crunchyroll, definitely check it out. The action is awesome, the animation smooth, and the story interesting.
Finally a preorder update. We’re up to 933 on The Great Northern War with just over two weeks to go until release. Thanks everyone for your amazing support.
Talk to you tomorrow.
