Portal is a Very Creepy Game

Portal Poster

This time it’s going to be a little bit different because I’m going to talk about a video game I recently played. I think this will be the only occasion where I’ll talk about video game so don’t worry, after this I’ll stick back to my anime format.

Now I’m not a gamer, obviously. I don’t play that much video games. But of course every now and then I’ll play some games to fill in my leisure time and I mostly play the more popular ones. You know, the normal first person shooter games like the Call of Duty and Crysis series, the Command and Conquer genre like the Red Alert series and Generals and sometimes a little bit of The Sims or City Skyline. I’m just a guy who sometimes play games… like normal people. But I do want to share my thoughts and experience of this one particular game that I really like called Portal.

First Impressions: Irozuku Sekai no Ashita Kara Episode 1 – 3

Irozuku 3

I picked this show mainly because it’s from PA Works. PA Works rarely disappoints me and almost always does things right. The genre of anime they usually produce is also my taste so that’s a major plus for me. So this season, this is the only anime… that I watch… Yeah, I actually don’t watch anime that much. Let’s dive in.

The basic premise of the story is about a girl named Tsukishiro Hitomi who by some unknown reason loses the ability to see colours. She sees the world in only black and white. She is soon transported to the past by her grandmother’s magic to the era when her grandmother was still in highschool. Not knowing the reason or purpose of being transported, she struggles to find a way to get back to the present while trying to adapt to the new world she’s currently living in.

Steins; Gate 0: A Sequel To an Already Perfect Ending

Steins Gate Zero 1

Hey there friends! Okay so I’m gonna talk about Steins; Gate 0 now. Firstly, Steins; Gate 0 is a really great anime. Watch it if haven’t already and also watch the original Steins; Gate. They are some of the best anime of all time, trust me.

If you’re not familiar with the series, let me explain to you the basic premise of the anime. This is a time travel anime and the series has 3 major worldlines, the first is alpha worldline, the second is beta worldline and the third is the Steins; Gate worldline. The alpha and beta worldlines are dystopian worldlines just in different ways but the Steins; Gate worldline is the utopian worldline which is the worldline that the characters are trying to pursue.

Most sequels don’t do justice to the prequel especially when the prequel already has a ‘perfect ending’. When the ending of a prequel is so good, the sequel usually ruins the prequel making its ending quite insignificant in some ways. And I dare say that the ending of the original Steins; Gate is already as ‘perfect’ it is.

Which is why Steins; Gate Load Region of Deja Vu, the sequel movie of the original Steins; Gate is very much forgettable because the story doesn’t need to be. It doesn’t need to exist. The ending of Steins; Gate is already perfect so to add anything to it would just ruin it.

Joshiraku: Their Clothes and Their Hairstyles

Joshiraku.jpg

Joshiraku is a very funny show. Their first joke is a freaking 4th wall breaker and that actually caught me off guard. Since it is an adaptation of a very dialogue heavy manga, the characters question why someone would want adapt it as an anime in the first place. That particular moment was what made me decide to continue watching this anime until the end. I highly recommend anyone who is into comedy anime to give this a try. The jokes can get a little random and a bit too Japanese at times, meaning that only Japanese people would mostly understand the jokes but even with that, I still think it’s a great comedy anime.

Well I’m not here to review the anime wholly. Rather, I want to point out one particular aspect of the anime which I find very interesting. You see, this anime usually sets in the dressing room of the girl’s working place in a comedy theater. However, every episode, there is a section where the characters go outside of their dressing room and into the city, like going out to the mall or to the amusement park or the hot spring.

Kiss Him, Not Me: Kae’s Obsession Towards Yaoi

Kiss Him Not Me 4.png

This series is about a horizontally challenged girl who is way too obsessed with the otaku culture especially yaoi. One day, her favourite character of an anime died which led her to a state of depression. She doesn’t go out of her room for a week and of course also doesn’t eat. After a week, she finally went out of her room and after she looks herself in the mirror, she finds out that she’s now HOT AS HELL. And so, that’s when the story starts.

I was actually attracted to this series when I heard that the main character transforms her appearance drastically because of her depression. I find it funny (I’m so sorry for those who are genuinely depressed). Now this series is mostly comedic and it relies almost entirely on the fact that Kae, the main character is obsessed with yaoi.
