Saint Young Men volume 3

Today kind of exploded. We have a new thing we're working on, and we didn't know how long it would take, so we started it today to see if we could find out, and the answer is approooooximately forever. And that's fine and all, but then of course Gaston called and he wants to go to Disneyland tomorrow. But that's cool, because we were thinking of going to Disneyland tomorrow anyway, but that was before we spent the day not working on the thing that's due on Friday morning. Ha, ha, ha. Fortunately, we were able to make significant progress on that after dinner, so we should be able to finish it before Gaston arrives tomorrow, and we still had time for an episode of Miraculous! Whew!

But it's Review Rednesday! And I'm sure you're all dying to know our thoughts on Saint Young Men volume three! Spoilers ahead! (For whatever can count as a spoiler in this series.)

Ah, ha, ha... Yeah, sorry about this, everybody. This is why our little sister thinks we hate retellings of myths and fairy tales. We don't hate all off them. Just when the writing seems lazy. But! you may or may not be happy to know that we were reading in Philippians on Sunday, and Paul was talking about how, thanks to his getting arrested, lots of people are talking about Jesus, and some people are saying great things, and some people are saying very not great things, but the point is they're all talking about Jesus, so he counts it as a win. In other words, all publicity is good publicity. And that was a reminder to me to think more kindly on this series.

Anyway, this is the only release we have this week, but next week, we have two! Volume two of A.I.C.O Incarnation, and volume 10 of In/Spectre! We...actually have not written a review of AICO, so maybe we'll write one on the spot next week! Or maybe we won't! We'll see what happens!

Today I'm thankful for getting our work done, having plans to go to Disneyland with friends, getting to watch an episode of Miraculous, getting to order a Nintendo Switch, and our shiny new Saiyuki bracelets arriving today.
