This isn’t the kind of material I usually post, but it’s a very solid and well-balanced video on the subject that doesn’t go into too much details, but covers all the major points, and features a nice combination of footage from documentaries and live recordings, so I thought I might as well share it.
By the way, Rick Steves has a lot of interesting and informative videos on various European countries, so make sure to check out his channel!
Iron Sky team brought back their website (not as fancy as the old one, but it’s better than nothing, and now you can watch both movies for free, too) and also released an artbook and a prequel graphic novel in digital.
I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on the artbook for quite some time now, since I missed the opportunity to order the old one along with the Dictator’s cut DVD. And while most of the art it includes can be found at Jussi Lehtiniemi’s art blog (he also shares some very interesting notes about work process, by the way), it was a nice opportunity to support the creators. I really love the design of the tech in the original movie. Still wish there was a game based on it (aside the space battle simulator we have), so we could explore the Moon base and Götterdämmerung in 3D.
As for the graphic novel, I already have it in print, but it’s great that it’s now available in digital too, because it certainly is the story that deserves to be more accessible to a wider audience. It was written by Mikko Rautalahti, the writer of Alan Wake and Imaginaerum, and while I haven’t played the former yet, the latter is one of my favorite movies. In Iron Sky prequel Mikko created a story that is way more dark, serious and tragic, than the original movie, which, being a comedy/parody, is pretty light hearted (well, except the ending), but still has a good portion of weird Finnish humor. And the artist for the prequel was Gerry Kissell. I ain’t familiar with his other works, but his art style in this graphic novel is beautiful. I like how detailed the backgrounds are, and how well he conveys the emotions of the characters and creates the overall atmosphere. He truly manages to bring that world to life.

Шутки шутками, а последние два эпизода “Сказочных девочек” действительно вышли одновременно с последними “Мстителями”. И, если честно, ещё не ясно, кто по накалу драмы кого превзойдёт.
Этот обзор сделан в формате “скриншоты + подписи”, потому что что тут особо скажешь, когда авторы всё сказали за тебя. И да, где-то к концу первой серии я поняла, что количество скриншотов уже почти в два раза превысило то, которое приходится на одну серию у других обзорщиков, но решила, что мне всё равно, ибо такой финал — это слишком прекрасно. Кому не охота их листать, скипайте сразу сюда.
Looks like Kimetsu no Yaiba is going to be that one anime that I will approach cautiously, thinking it might disappoint me any time, and in the end I will have watched it all without even noticing.
Two episodes in, I’m still not sure what to make of it. On one hand, it’s not really my thing, as I ain’t into Japanese folklore and ain’t a big fan of shounen genre either. But on the other hand, it’s hard not to notice how much effort people who are working on this show have put into it, and that makes me want to keep watching.
There’s a number of things that stand out for me in particular, so I thought I’d write a few words about them. There are mild spoilers, so be careful!
