Watching the anime, Dr. Stone, just finished season 1. I REALLY wish that Season 2 had run longer than 11 episodes, but it did finish a story arc, so it makes sense as a stopping point. Oh well. Gifting a copy to my nephew for his bday coming up in  a couple of weeks, I hope he'll enjoy it as much as I do! :D

It's an amazing anime for sure! I loved watching Dr. Stone!

I'm currently rewatching all of the Harry Potter movies. I've purchased the box set too. my philosophy basically is, if I like a movie enough to rewatch it several times, I might as well just buy it. Plus, the HP movies weren't on Netflix or Disney+ and I can't afford to get a subscription on every streaming service out there.

Cool! Yeah, my nephew will be 13 in a couple of weeks and he's into science so I'm hoping watching Dr. Stone will get him 10,000,000,000% excited! 😉

Cool! It's been awhile. I have the box set too, but it's been awhile since I last watched them. Good movies. 🙂

I think Warner Bros. made them, so they wouldn't be on Disney+ or Netflix even, unless there was a special agreement with them.

*nods* Agreed. I have a Disney+ subscription, but that's ONLY for the vintage stuff, the newer/newest Disney stuff MOSTLY reeks like billion-year old non-dried out corpses. IMHO. 😉 That's the only streaming service I subscribe to, sometimes, I question if that's even worth it, given the garbage the Disney company cranks out these days. Ah well. lol

I loved Doctor stone too! I just recently finished 86 (Loved it so much that I had to read the light novel and I'm a giggly school girl and the main characters relationship! SOOO CUTE!~) I would highly recommend both watching the anime and reading the light novel, it's pretty closely following each other which is refreshing to see something not changed too much from the source material. Snow White with the Red hair is also a VERY cute anime I just started a couple days ago and finished! I'm just waiting for the second movie in the SAO; Progressive series to come out, I'm SOOOO excited for it. SAO is so near and dear to my heart, Asuna and Kirito are my ALLL TIME favorite couples/characters 🙂

I am however excited for the Percy Jackson Series on Disney+, I read those books as they came out and loved them so much, so was excited when the movies came out and they absolutely RUINED. The fans have been following Rick Riordan as he's been trying to find the right producer to bring his world to life and when they finally went with someone and started filming I was ecstatic. I was beyond pumped with the trailer came out!!

86? lol I doubt it, but are you talking about Maxwell Smart, agent 86 of Control? XD

Played by Don Adams, one of my favorite comedic actors of all time! :D WAAAAAY better than the movie with Steve Carrel. 😉 (Or however his name is spelled)

LOL I just had to. lol I'm still a HUGE fan of the Get Smart series, even though it hasn't been on TV in ages. I used to watch reruns as a kid on Nick at Nite. lol

So, obviously I'm not familiar with the anime 86. lol

It seems you are keyed into romantic relationships as your focus in anime, would that be a fair assessment? XD

I haven't gotten to Snow White with the Red Hair yet, but I've heard good things about it.

SAO is awesome, and it's no surprise that you like Asuna and Kirito so much. lol One only need glance at your avatar to figure you're a fan. 😉

Though Aniplex can shove their over-bloated prices where the sun don't shine. 😉  From what I've seen of reviews, they overcharge us in America while other nations, like the UK don't have to pay nearly as much as we do. Again, going by complaint reviews I've read over the years at Rightstufanime's site.

I'm looking forward to what happens after the end of War of Underworld, I HOPE it'll air on Cartoon Network like all the other main SAO episodes have. I do have at least some of the movies. Oridinal Scale was interesting. Didn't really care too much for Extra Edition though.

I'm more into the story and how things are worked out, not to mention the broader interaction and relationships between all the characters. Have you seen Ouran, High School Host Club? I didn't think I'd like it starting out. A friend convinced me to watch it. But, I really got into it because of the pace of character development. Even by the last episode the characters are still developing. A shame there will never be a movie for it. but it ended pretty well, and I highly recommend it. The humorous interplay is GREAT. LOL

I haven't read the Percy Jackson books, I've seen the Lightning Thief movie, I wasn't very impressed tbh.

Unfortunately, I doubt my favorite novels will EVER become movies, which is a shame because they are so intricate and awesome. But I suppose maybe too much so, they would need the Harry Potter treatment, as in at least 1 movie per novel, maybe 2. lol There's just SO much going on that I think it would be difficult, even today, to turn them into movies.

There are 7 books in "The Death Gate Cycle" series. A wonderful fantasy novel collection that takes place in a post, post-apocalyptic world. Heck, it's not even a world anymore, it was sundered into several, ages ago. 😉

This is the longest running and most comprehensive fansite for the series, it even has images and descriptions from the PC game that was created (loosely) based upon the books. http://www.immora.com/deathgate/index.php

The game actually came in 2nd place in an International graphics contest back around 1992. The game that beat it was Warcraft II, lol Long before World of Warcraft was created. 😉 I'm betting it was the cutscenes that won the day for Warcraft II, some of the cutscenes in the Death Gate game, especially the last and CLIMACTIC one, were pretty lackluster.

And I'm looking at the TV off ) because I have to do an assignment that I absolutely do not want to do. I read the comments, googled it, and now I'll be stuck in front of the screen for days. Thanks for the options) I should probably pass on this essay writing service link and just take some time for myself. I must admit that I have never been able to write, but I can lie down and watch soap operas just fine)))
