Okay, well, I’ve started the book at this point (I still own a copy), but I’ve only read to chapter three, which is Cassette 2, Side A.
I’m so much more interested in the show. Like, immensely. I want to watch the show more than I want to read the book right now, so that’s what I’m going to do.
Since both the show and the book seem to correlate, with each episode being a side and each chapter being a side, I’ll try to keep it even by reading a chapter and then watching the corresponding episode. It might not work out fully, but I can already tell that they took a lot of liberties with the show when translating from the book.
Thankfully, I feel like they’re actually really good decisions, considering the media change. I wouldn’t necessarily have changed them in the book, because they work pretty well as they are as a book, but they changes they did make I think were a really good idea due to the change in media.
… Did that make sense? I hope it did.
Anyway, it’s time to liveblog. Dun dun duuuuuun.
I love it. This may be a 13-part feature of me saying how much I’m enjoying this series. I can’t emphasize enough how well I think they managed this story, especially with what they had to work with.
The book is good, and I remember really enjoying the story because of the twists and everything, but the visuals of the show kill it.
Here’s hoping they all go this well.
Thanks for reading!
