‘Papers, Please!’ – A Very Stressful Game

Papers Please

During the summer steam sale, I looked into many indie title games available on Steam and are on sale. Papers, Please happens to be one of them.

Like many indie games, the gameplay is very unique. You are the inspector of a fictional country called Arstotzka, guarding one of the entrances of the East border of the country. A war against a neighbouring country has just ended but the peace is still very fragile. Your job is to inspect everyone who wants to enter the East border of the country. The means of inspection is by examining their personal related documents such as passports and ID cards, hence the title, Papers, Please.

Ramadhan is Here!

Anime Ramadhan

That’s right guys, the month of Ramdhan starts today! The month when we don’t eat or drink during the day but feast hard during the night. It was quite surprising to know that Ramdhan comes this early. I thought it was still 2 weeks away.

I’ll share with you one reason why we fast during this month. One of the morals is for us to understand the struggle of people who don’t have food at their disposal. It’s a really good thing to understand in my opinion.

Anyway, enjoy this year’s Ramadhan, and enjoy a variety of food that are only largely produced during Ramadhan! Well in my country at least.

See you next time!

Hey, It Has Been A Long Time!

Hey there, I’m back! It’s been quite a while since I’ve last posted here. Well okay my previous post about To The Moon is just there to break the very long silence. I missed my weekly Kaguya-sama review and I even abandoned Yomu’s collaboration project. (I’m really sorry!) I do plan to finish the posts. I think that’s what I should do even if it’s super late.

Many things happened while I’m gone and I’m going to talk some of them.

To start things off, my grandfather fell down and and fractured his left hip and left shoulder bone. How? He was getting out of a car from the passenger seat but misplaced his cane and fell down left shoulder first. It wasn’t really a big fall but my grandfather is 87 years old, a small accident could damage a lot to an old body like his.

Cross Game: Switching The Main Heroine

Wallpaper Cross Game

Before going in, I just want to say that if you haven’t watched the first episode, I highly recommend you watch it. I’m going to go through a bit of the spoilery side of the episode. Well it’s only the first episode but a big event happens at the end of the episode. I watched the episode completely blind and I think it’s the best way to experience it. With that said, let’s begin.

A few minutes into the episode, I noticed a few things different about this anime. Firstly, it’s the character design. The anime has a very old styled character design which I think fits perfectly with the tone of the anime. Secondly, the tone of the anime. It looks like a sports anime from the outside but in the first episode, it’s quite clear that this is essentially a love story. The main character, Kitamura Kou spends way more time with the ‘supposed’ main heroine Tsukishima Wakaba than he plays or even thinks about baseball. After knowing this, some might be turned off because they expect a sport anime but I personally like the approach. I mean, I don’t hate romance in anime so I can see myself enjoying the series.

This Art Club Has a Problem Episode 4: Inspiring Moments

Usami and Uchimaki
Yomu listed a couple of interesting themes for us to choose from. For this episode, I chose the theme ‘inspiring moments’ in this anime.

Well anything related to arts has always been inspiring to me. It doesn’t matter any type of arts, really but since this anime is about visual arts, I’ll focus more on that. Visual arts kinda naturally runs through all my female siblings. They all love to draw and they’re all really good too (I’m really bad at it though). But it a lot of practice and patience for them to be that good. So whenever I see any drawings in the art club of this anime, I always imagine the effort and time they put in order to finish that particular piece of art. Not only that, I also imagine the time they practiced before they get to that level. It must’ve taken years of dedication and passion for them to be on their current level of skill. To me, even if it happens off screen and the anime doesn’t focus on that, it’s still inspiring.

This Art Club Has a Problem Episode 3: Usami’s Blushing Moments

Usami Blushes 8

We’re back with episode 3 of Yomu’s collaboration. This time I’ll just focus on Usami’s blushing moments. Why? Because it’s actually the main reason I watch this series. I enjoy this series but I mostly just watch it with an extremely relaxed manner. That’s what I do with most comedy anime and this one’s no exception. Since this anime revolves around Usami and her crush, that’s what I’m focusing on.

I don’t think anyone can deny that Usami is awfully cute when she blushes. Not to mention, this anime pretty much shows her blush all the time! Let’s compile some of her blushing moments in this episode shall we?

This Art Club Has a Problem Episode 2 – 10:00 to 15:00

Another episode of This Art Club Has a Problem, a collaboration project by Yomu. I’m still late as heaven and I’m probably going to be late every week. If you haven’t already joined but you find this interesting, you are still very welcomed to participate. The more the merrier, right?

In this episode, I chose the theme ‘10:00 – 15:00’ just because I was curious of what happens in that period of time. Is it extremely funny? Too boring perhaps? Or very deep maybe? It turns out that it isn’t out of the ordinary from the other parts of the episode. Let’s look into it.
