I was watching the third season of Chihayafuru (I still haven’t finished it) and I suddenly had the urge to search for something similar to Karuta to play. I think I actually searched for a karuta game online a few years ago when I first watched the first season but I didn’t find any. Now however, I FOUND IT! It’s called Competitive Karuta Online and you can play it on Android and iOS.

I Watched ‘Stop This Sound’ Because of The Romance

Blushing Moments 2

Yes, you read it right. I watched this anime only because I saw a lot of blushing scenes on multiple social media platforms. I once said I didn’t want to continue watching the second season but yet here I am. I explained in this post that I didn’t really enjoy watching this anime. And I still hold to my stance. I did not enjoy the musical performance (but this season is much better), I don’t like how overdramatic everyone is, I don’t find the dynamics of the characters interesting and I especially hate the trio boys. I mean, why do they exist?? However, I found out that there are ships in this anime and all of them aren’t harem so I tried looking into it and now, I finished the anime. Basically, I decided to continue watching this anime just because I want to watch anime girls blush.

Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc Impressions

20190911181847_1

I’m currently playing a game called Danganronpa. It’s a very unique game (or visual novel) about 15 students who are trapped in an abandoned school by a bear-like psychopath. The only way for them to be freed is by killing at least one person and getting away with it. 

Unlike other battle royale stories which revolve around being the last one to survive, in this story, you just have to kill one person without letting any other students know you’re the culprit. After a murder takes place, there will be a period of time for all the students to investigate the crime scene and search for all the evidences. Then, the ‘class trial’ starts.

VRChat – A Great Place To Hang Out During Lockdown

Wallpaper VRChat

So my country is currently in lockdown! Well not full lockdown yet but extremely restricted. We call it the Movement Control Order (MCO) This means that all the classes are postponed, people work from home and there are more time to play video games.

I’ve started playing VRChat because of a Youtuber named Lunamia. You can check him out. He’s really funny. But I’ve started to play more during this MCO period. I didn’t think it was this fun. So many random things can happen at any given moment.

Domestic Girlfriend – Should I Watch It?

For some reason, I thought this song was sung by Mafumafu. If you don’t know who he is, he’s a Japanese singer who sounds like a girl. I like this song because of how emotionally committed the singer sings the song. She sings with desperation, frustration and exasperation. This goes hand in hand with its lyrics which is pretty depressing in my opinion. 

Then I found out that…

Musical Performances in Sound! Euphonium

Sound Euphonium 1.jpg
The live performance is one of the most important moments in all music anime. If it’s good, it makes the characters feel more real and alive. If the anime skips the performance, it makes us wonder why it is a music anime in the first place.

Many music anime such as Stop This Sound, which I recently watched, have so many dialoguesduring the performance. As they play their instruments, the characters watching them play would make remarks like, “It’s very good. I feel like all the seasons have changed” or “oh my God they all play the impossible notes in sync even though it’s… well, impossible!!!” The remarks, to me, break the flow of the performance. I want to listen to the performance and let me catch it first hand how awesome or awful they play and how good they’ve become. But I can’t because other characters keep interrupting me and describe how they play to me. Continue reading

‘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.

Kaguya-sama Love is War – Essentially A Comedy

Kaguya 1

The more popular anime from last season ended a while ago and it has received much praise from many people including myself. It’s a comedy anime about two people liking each other but refuses to confess to each other because in doing so, they declare that they are the loser of their own love war. They subconsciously know that the other person likes them back so they always make the most elaborate plans to lure the other person into accidentally confessing or imply a confession. Both Shinomiya Kaguya and Shirogane Miyuki are depicted as intelligent students but they use their intelligence for idiotic purposes.

Replaying To The Moon

To The Moon Main Menu.png

I’ve been playing To The Moon again. It’s been a long time since I first played it. I think it was back in 2013. My friend was the one who introduced me to this game and I thank him for that.

Back then I wasn’t really into the narrative when it comes to games. I played games because of the gameplay, not because of the story. So when I played any video game, I skipped every cutscene (unless they can’t be skipped) and I ignored every dialogue. I couldn’t care less about what happened to the characters and the overall story. I just want to play the game.

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.
