Stuff I’ve been loving.
Lately I’ve been reading and watching a few new things, so I figured I would talk about them on a post!
#1 GOOD MORNING CALL – Season 2
Some of my favourite shows on Netflix are Japanese, particularly Terrace House and Good Morning Call.
I’ve loved the first season of this show, but wasn’t expecting a second one, so when I saw it popping up a week or so ago, I let out a small scream and grabbed Felix.
It is about Nao and Uehara, two high-schoolers that end up living together after getting scammed.
Nao is a kind, pretty and innocent girl; whilst Uehara is the cool, quiet guy all the girls like.
To be honest, I’ve spent most of each episode of season 1 hating Uehara and shipping Nao with any other guy… and although in season 2 he becomes a lot nicer, Natsume is introduced and OH. MY.
Please watch it. Do it for me. I loved this season (it has 10 episodes) and both are extremely enjoyable – the show is based on a manga so the reactions are usually exaggerated and the editing is so over the top. I love it.
#2 KIMI NI TODOKE
Talking about manga, I’ve had the first 3 volumes of Kimi Ni Todoke (From Me to You) by my bedside table so today I finally got around starting the first one.
I instantly got into it… possibly because of the similarity of Sawako with Sadako (from the horror movie Ringu). It’s sweet – not a horror at all – and beautifully drawn.
#3 BLEND S
To stay on theme, an anime Felix and I have been loving is Blend S.
He was the one that asked for us to watch it, and it’s just so fun. We are all catched-up with it and always can’t wait for a new episode to come out.
It’s about Maika, a teenager interested in foreign countries, that wants to save up some money to study abroad. The managed or a café sees her and instantly falls in love, which leads to him hiring her. The humour is so good!
#4 CHEF & MY FRIDGE
This is another show I recently came across on Netflix, and it’s a Korean cooking show.
While watching the very first episode, both Felix and I were very confused, but as soon as the chefs started cooking, we got drawn in. The tension!
In each episode there are two celebrities that bring their own fridges, and some chefs have to battle each other by creating a dish with the ingredients provided… in just 15 minutes!
It’s insane how creative and quick they are. I’ve been watching this during dinner, and has been giving me some ideas for meals as well as useful tips.
#5 THE DISASTER ARTIST
Last night we finally got to watch it. The wait was worth it, as we all laughed and loved The Disaster Artist so much.
I found that the movie was tweaked a bit and skipped lots of things written in the movie, but overall did a great job with the adaptation.
For the occasion, I wore a red dress and bought a red rose for myself and all of my friends coming to the cinema; Felix dressed up as Tommy and Jack had a wig to match Mark’s (Greg) hair.
So there are my top 5 picks this month, for entertainment.
Have you seen/read any of these? Do you have any recommendations for me?
