What's New

09 Dec 16

We start a new adventure today with the prologue of The Celestial Kingdom - Volume 1: Daughter of Heaven. While it'll be some time before I pick up the sequels of EM and JJ, I'm going to be going straight through the CeleKing series, which means that barring any schedule slip, this marks the beginning of a three-year journey, so strap yourself in for that. I'll be publishing a chapter every other week, which means we're going to have some empty space in the off weeks until I get another story far enough along to launch it. And turning to events in the more recent future, we've got the end of our current batch of Zelda manga reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

Can love bloom on the battlefield? Well, we might get a little closer to the answer in Urgill's Chapter 1 of TTWC3. Look for the launch of CeleKing1 and more reviews in the days to come. Stay tuned.

We continue our coverage of Legend of Zelda manga with Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages and also have Volume 27 and Volume 28 of Ranma 1/2. Our special feature for the week is my review of Season 1 of HBO's Westworld. (Spoiler alert: It's really good.) Coming up, we've got more TTWC3, the debut of CeleKing1 and more Zelda and Ranma manga reviews. Stay tuned.

Prompted by the rise of unsavory practices by Facebook and Twitter, I've decided to start an account with Gab.ai. My handle is @PalidorMedia, the same as for Twitter. Perhaps if I was more strongly principled, I'd drop Facebook and Twitter entirely, but I'm going to hold on to the accounts for a while at least for the sake of my (admittedly few) followers. Now, you can't view a person's Gab feed externally yet and as the site's still in beta, there's a waitlist for joining. It just took three days for me to get in, though, so if you're interested and you want a social media platform with a bedrock commitment to free speech, give it some thought. For the time being, I'll be posting updates to both Twitter (which echoes to Facebook) and Gab. If I decide to suspend the site's Facebook and Twitter accounts, I'll be sure to let you know first. In other news, reviews are coming up tomorrow. Stay tuned.

I would say, "It's a nice day for a white nekowedding," but I already used that line when Julian and Liria got married in T3W. It'd be in poor taste to recycle it here (or would it kick off a running gag?). We have our last Space Arc short of the current series, "Wedding Bells Are Ringing", which takes the ending of Tico4 to its obvious conclusion. I may or may not write up a commentary post addressing the concerns some of you may have after reading it. Look for reviews coming up in a few days. Stay tuned.

We've got a new lead in the form of the Goblin princess Urgill. Will Goblin's find better luck with the Alliance compared with the Dominion? Well, if you've already read Garm's section, you already have a good idea of how things turn out, but let's see it from her perspective, starting with Urgill's prologue of TTWC3. Our last Space Arc short is coming up in a couple days with more manga reviews to follow plus a special TV review for a certain series whose finale airs Sunday evening. Stay tuned.

We're going to be doing all (or at least mostly all) manga reviews for the next few weeks. Our primary feature is my collection of Legend of Zelda manga. We pick up where we left off last week with Volume 1 and Volume 2 of Ocarina of Time and follow it with Majora's Mask. And never fear, Ranma fans, we've also got Volume 25 and Volume 26 for your reading pleasure. Next week, we start Urgill's section of TTWC3, have the last Space Arc short in the current lineup and review the manga adaptation of the Oracle games. Stay tuned.

Well, it's Thanksgiving, so let's talk turkey about buns in the oven with our latest Space Arc short: "Sister Surrogate". One more short and then we'll kick off CeleKing1. We've still got manga reviews coming up/ Stay tuned.

Although Scipio's primary focus has been acting as a guiding hand for the rebellion, he was always aware that there was potentially a larger struggle going on. He gets to make a contribution to that larger struggle as we bid him farewell in Scipio's epilogue of TTWC3. We've got a Space Arc short and manga reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

This week we look at my two other big time wasters: Shoujo to Dragon and Cinderella Girls. We continue our coverage of the Ranma 1/2 manga with Volume 23 and Volume 24 and also start covering the Legend of Zelda manga with the adaptation of A Link to the Past. I think we'll do more Zelda manga next week. On the story front, look for the end of Scipio's section of TTWC3 and our next Space Arc short. Stay tuned.

You remember Sean "Kodiak" McCormick? How about his marital troubles? Well, we'll see how well he can patch things up in "Homecoming King". Look for reviews. Stay tuned.

How do you bring bitter enemies to the bargaining table? That's the old archmage's challenge in Scipio's Chapter 5 of TTWC3. Luckily for him, half the job is already done, but he's still got the more difficult task. We've got a Space Arc short and reviews still coming up. Stay tuned.

Don your fedoras and take out your bullwhips, ladies and gentlemen. It's time for Indiana Jones. We've got the entire trilogy here: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. What's that? Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? I'm pretty sure I'd remember something that sounded that ridiculous. (Okay, seriously though, I thought it was a mixed bag and don't want to revisit it.) We're also resuming our coverage of the Ranma 1/2 manga with Volume 21 and Volume 22. Coming up, we've got more TTWC3, the first of three post-Tico4 shorts and a couple mobile game reviews. Stay tuned.
