The bad news is that I won’t be doing reviews for the month of January. Sorry about that. I’m still doing my best to prioritize different things in my life. The good news is that I’ll be having a tag post which I haven’t done in a long time. I was recently tagged by Chris from Never Argue With a Fish. Thank you very much! This tag was created by Yomu for those scoring at home.
Here are the rules for the Failure to Launch tag:
Put the logo and rules in your post.
Thank whoever tagged you and link back to their post
Link back to the original post.
List some brief excerpts where stories (anime, book, movie – anything is fine) failed to launch due to a missing call to action. As many as you want. Readers can then try and guess the story in the comments!
Nominate 3 other blogs to continue the tag!
Alright, let’s do this! I’ll focus on some more popular works mixed with a few things I’ve reviewed on the blog for the harder excerpts.
An orphaned high school boy gets sick and has to miss a big science exhibit. He goes through the motions once he gets better and his only responsibility involves his studies as well as possibly hanging out with his girlfriend from time to time.
A delinquent has a habit of getting into fights. He goes home one day and a little boy gets himself out of the street to his parents. The ruffian sighs in relief as he doesn’t have to worry about going into the afterlife or seeing various poltergeists on earth or beyond.
A black cat manages not to cross paths with a ditzy girl. A destiny of saving the earth as well as memories of a past life become ignored.
A ship isn’t capsized after dealing with stormy weather. Someone from another kingdom will never have to be obsessed with someone she never met and can keep on talking.
A couple of friends clean up an attic of one of their respective grandfathers. They do their best to straighten things up on that rainy night, but they don’t even think about a wooden board tucked away in the room. There’s no interest in the board, clubs, or any ways to work full time that’s associated with it.
(This is the most difficult one and it’s a trick story, but I did review it a long time ago.)
A king doesn’t get killed, so his younger brother can’t attempt to claim the throne. In the meantime, the prince (as in the king’s son) is blissfully unaware of any wrongdoings from his kingdom despite being at war with another group.
I will give some bonus points to anyone who gets number 6.
For this challenge, I tag the following:
