2024 Media
Welcome to my 2024 Media page!

This page is a log of all of the media I watch/play/etc. in the year 2024.

着信アリ (One Missed Call)
Mar 2nd

In my mind Japanese movies aren't the greatest... this movie didn't do much to prove that wrong. It's a horror movie but barely had any scares, had a boring plot and twist, and the acting was pretty meh. It wasn't even fun bad, my friends kept falling asleep and I couldn't help but pull out my phone.

Final Destination 5
Mar 2nd

The final Final Destination?? Apparently not, there's another one coming later this year... It was actually pretty good? I didn't like how much more personal conflict it had (just get to the gore already) but the ending was pretty good?? It was cheesy but cool... Best one besides the first.

The Empire of Corpses
Mar 5th

So my friend wanted to show me this movie specifically because she said it was so weird and bad and just a total trip of an experience... well, she was right! It's just another one of those "Japanese author is obsessed with Western stories" kinda shows where suddenly Victor Frankenstein and Sherlock Holmes and... former president of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant, are in the same room? It was just weird and not very fun to watch besides poking fun at it. Zombie yaoi was cool though.

Heavenly Delusion
Mar 15th

I *really* enjoyed Heavenly Delusion. This show had been on my radar for a long time but I was waiting for it to finish airing since I'm more into "slow binging" lately! Not binging all at once but instead spacing it out over a week or two, usually 1-2 eps a day. Anyways, the story isn't finished so I wanna hold off on a plot inspection but I love the main two and can't wait to see where this story goes. There was some stuff I'm not sure about yet and I hope the LGBT themes continue to be "good", only time will tell. PLEASE get s2, either way I'll be reading!

Pokémon Concierge
Mar 16th

One of the CUTEST things I have ever watched. I'm not even a diehard Pokémon fan but I am in love. I really needed something cozy and cute right now and this was absolutely perfect. Very happy to hear they'll be making more, I can't wait!

The Great Mouse Detective
Mar 22nd
I watch very random things with this friend... I do have a desire to go back and watch more Disney movies I never saw/saw once and forgot about (Jungle Book, The Rescuers, Hunchback, Hercules, etc...), especially when they are a big part of the current zeitgeist. So this may have been an unofficial start to that journey! It was cute, we joked about mouse yaoi, nothing more.

Frieren: Beyond Journey's End
Mar 28th
Bawling my eyes out, what do I have in my life now that Frieren ended??? I'll start the manga, reading it veeery slowly because whenever a new season is announced, I may wait for it so I can watch blind. It was AMAZING. Frieren 100% reeled me back into anime. I'm going to miss it dearly, can't wait for more. Ending dragged the tiniest bit (exam arcs...) but it was perfection.

The Bear
Mar 29th
I forget how much I enjoy Western TV until I watch it and am like "wow, anime could never" (or... rarely does). The Bear was a really interesting show, throwing me into a world I know very little about (cooking!). Much like Succession I feel like some of the lines got me thinking "nobody speaks like that" but it wasn't as bad lol. I'm invested now, can't wait for more.

Rilakkuma to Yuuenchi
Mar 31st
I really enjoyed the original series so it was time to watch the sequel!! I didn't like it as much as the first one though... the OG was much more laid back, about SOL antics, but this one was about a sole day in an amusement park. It felt a bit more crowded and focused on a lot of characters and moments I didn't care about. But it was Rilakkuma, so ofc it was cute.

Final Destination 3
Feb 2nd

My friends and I have been binging all the Final Destination movies together!!! It's been a lot of fun to laugh at the bad special effects and try and guess how each new character will meet their demise... This movie was a bit better than others, but had a lazy ending.

The Final Destination
Feb 2nd

ANOTHER ONE!!! It was a long night. This one was ASS though : (
Halfway through watching we realized it was a 3D movie so from that point onwards we would just point and yell "3D!!!" every time a bad 3D effect appeared on screen. That was the only good part ngl.

I generally didn't enjoy the time travel plot but Araragi and Shinobu had some interesting conversations and it was fun reading them try to understand different timelines and think of a way out. Pretty good.

Suruga Devil

I enjoyed this arc MUCH more when reading it, which is strange. Kanbaru is such an amazing character and I don't think I appreciated her enough when first going through the anime. I'm glad I got to re-experience it!

Nadeko Snake

Feb 15th

Ah... this is one half my favorite Monogatari arc so it was such a pleasure to read. Nadeko as a narrator is so unsettling it's amazing. I love what NISIOISIN does with all the different narration styles.

Shinobu Time

Feb 15th

If you would like to read my longer review please visit here.
Rude as hell to use Shinobu for the name and have her on the title but to barely include her... This one was a slog. Too much weird fanservice and the storytelling style used was a headache to get through.

Persona 3: Reload
Feb 18th

An amazing and much deserved remake of an already amazing original game. While I enjoyed playing P3FES years ago it and its characters never stuck with me, so I was glad to be given a chance to revisit it and enjoy it more this time around. The changes made were great (although I think additional ones should have been made..), loved it!

Trolls Band Together
Jan 9th

Started the year strong. . .
My sister (who is too old to be into Trolls) is very into Trolls so at a certain point I just HAD to watch it. I actually think the Trolls movies are pretty good, for a kids movie, so I enjoyed it more than I expected. I think the art in particular is pretty great! Fun enough.

AI: The Somnium Files
- Nirvana Initiative -

Jan 23rd

Crazy ass game... I played the first one in 2023 and it was a massive headache to say the least... It's fun in a bad way but also bad in a bad way. . .
I liked it a lot less than the first, and the plot twist at the end was just confusing. Still was fun to be frustrated about it though.

D4DJ Tiering
MuniRei t10 & dt1

Jan 25th - Feb 1st

You can read my tiering letter here.
I absolutely LOVE to tier relationship events, and since so many friends from my tiering server SNB wanted to tier it I had to join in. It was a relatively uneventful tiering experience, which is always nice, and I'm glad to add another t10 to my list!
