    Anime of the day:

    Spice and Wolf - a travelling merchant encounters a local harvest goddess who joins him in a journey. Lots of fascinating insights into the local world and economy provide a really good backdrop to some genuinely enjoyable character interactions. Also happens to be among the best anime dubs I've ever heard.

    Book of the day:

    The Red Knight - a mercenary band is hired to defend an abbey from an invading army of monsters. There's a novel, albeit erratic interpretation of the monstrous wilderness trope, and a bigly variety of nasty critters. Things go a little off the rails in later books, but so long as you don't take it overly seriously it's a remix on the old Arthurian cliche with enough changes to make it a completely new story which just hints at the familiar legends.

    Game of the day:

    Dragon Quest Builders - this is a lot like a minecraft building clone, but structured with mild rpg elements which set it apart. It's a lot smaller in scale, but I enjoyed the tighter focus that gave gameplay. I struggle to advance the story however because I compulsively build and tear down my base rather than advancing the plot.

    Movie of the day:

    The Jungle Book - the 2016 version. Man. Idris Elba as Shere Khan. 'nuff said.

    TV Show of the day:

    Highlander - Campy AF, but still good fun. Little bit gay for Duncan MacLeod. And for all that people bitch endlessly about CGI, they don't know how good we have it compared to the shitty retro SFX of the 90s.

    Book of the day:

    The Heralds of Valdemar - Omnibus edition of the first three Valdemar books, picked up at the suggestion from @duplaja - my only prior experience of this setting is Vathara's crossover with Rurouni Kenshin, which like all of Vathar's crossovers had excellent worldbuilding, almost good enough to make up for the limp plot. My biggest concern is that the cooler elements of the world might be Vathar doing Vathara and not anything from Valdemar, but I'll find where the line is drawn soon enough.

    Game of the day:

    Ni no Kuni 2 - good honest JRPG fun, albeit a bit childish at times. Cheesier than a Disney Channel original, but clearly built with a lot of love. Seems to copy Friendship no Jutsu straight from Naruto.
