First Impressions : The Compass Stone

I've long admired the Forgotten Realms setting. Recently, I was told about the Pathfinder setting. Based on the recommended reading order, I was told to start reading the Compass Stone. I like Sutter as an author and editor and decided to pick this up.

The world of Golarion is amazing. This book follows the exploits of Pathfinder Eando Kline of the Pathfinder Society. I am halfway through the book and love it so far. Eando is good company while I read this book and his humorous and adventuring personality are keeping me interested so far. 

First Impressions : Baby Steps

I started watching a new Tennis Anime called Baby Steps. First Impressions are pretty good. There is a lot of good character development going on. The amount of analysis and research that went into producing this stands out. I learnt a lot of terms I didn't even know about tennis.

The story is fairly solid. The support cast is good and there is enough excitement in the tennis matches depicted to make this a worthwhile watch. I am currently on episode 14 and like it thus far. There is some budding romance albeit manifesting very slowly, which can be expected since most of this is centered around the lead's progress as a tennis player.
