I was really excited for Castlevania: Noctune. I fiercly loved the original 4 season series. Between that show and Arcane, Netflix established itself as the perfect home for well done animation.
Nocture was … just okay? Why did eight 30 minute episodes need to feel so rushed? Why did we need to be introduced to so many characters at once? Clearly the story was written with a second season in mind, so why not take the story at a slower pace to let the characters grow and develop? Annette and Edouard’s story was the standout of the first season, and I wish we had more time to really let their backstory breathe. Richter needed far more time to develop from a young and inexperienced hero learning to live with the Belmont name.
Hopefully the series finds its legs in season two.

There's plenty of weather forecasts out there, but none did a good job of answering the question: "When should I go biking tomorrow?"
So I built one for myself. It's an extremely lightweight traditional webapp with a Go powered backend.

Metra has never had a good train tracker, I doubt they ever will. This is a React app with a Go backend that is geared towards people who want to know when the next train is coming with just a quick glance to their phone.
