Book Talks with Aggroe!

I'm sorry for abandoning you all again... I've had an... interesting weekend, to say the least. Most notably, I'm getting over the flu! Yay!
Anyways, in general Aggroe news, I've finished up to track 3 (and half of track 4) of my Starry*Sky Seiza Kareshi fan translation project!I have discovered a much better way to post them, so you'll have to wait for me to put it into a video with the audio files, but those should be ready soon. Also, I finished Katawa Shoujo playthrough part 2, but I have yet to format and edit the video itself. Windows Movie Maker hates working with me, but I think that I'm getting the hang of things... *hasn't used WMM since elementary school* ... *is very bad at it* Also, I made a playthrough of a horrible eroge (hentai game) called Monster Girl Quest. Anemone is going to play through it too, it's actually really epic! It's an RPG Visual Novel, and it's pretty fun. Watch it here~
Well, since today is Sunday, I'll be discussing books! I'm sure you've all seen or heard of the show Game of Thrones, right? I hope you all know that that show is based off of an EPIC book series by George R. R. Martin! Eheh... This may sound cliche and all, but the books are 10 million times better! True, there's less sex and more dragons/amazingness/plots/feels, but that makes it better in it's own way. Sex in a show isn't a problem, unless it replaces plot. Plot is good. Without plot, you've just got porn. And there's a time and a place for that shit.
*ahem* Excuse me, I've lost my filter.
A Song of Ice and Fire: George R. R. Martin
There are 5 books in total, and Georgie (if I can call him that... Know that I have a ton of respect for this man, he is wonderful~!) is planning to write 2 more. I have all 5 books so far, and love reading them in my spare time. I've already finished the series twice! It's heartwrenching, bloody, violent, eloquent, somewhat sexy if you're into the whole incest thing, and just all around well written.
This series is wonderful~ It's beyond words! But I will write words anyway.
Just a warning: If you don't know already, BE CAREFUL OF becoming attached to characters! THEY ALL DIE! THERE IS NO HAPPY ENDING!
You know Attack on Titan/Shingeki no Kyojin? Character death like a boss.
Horrible things happen to everyone, especially the main characters! Hell, at the end of the first book... Well, I can't tell you in case someone reading this hasn't seen the show or read the books.
I have to say that while the show isn't all I hoped for and more, it's DEFINITELY better than a lot of books that have been adapted for TV... A lot better. It helps that Georgie actually is the director... or something. I know he oversees and approves choices, anyways.

Twincest!... Yummy?

Daenarys Targaryan: Mother of Dragons!...and hopefully future queen of the Seven Kingdoms!

I have a good idea for what is going to happen, and about Jon Snow's true identity is, but we won't know until the series is done.
Yeah, it's a wonderful book series. They have a D&D-esque RPG based around the series, and it's pretty damn cool. Check it out!
That's this week's book review! I hope you all have a marvelous weekend! Are your Halloween preparations nearing their end~?
