the otaku wonderland
After blogging for more than 6 years, I swear I'm killing what little remains of my brain cells just for some shitty ideas to write.

There’s no denying I’ve been slowing down. I’m… uhh… getting a little bit on in years. And as I age, I find it’s harder and harder to get into the right mood to write. A long time ago, you can see a new post every few days or so, but nowadays you would be hard-pressed to even see a new post per month.
Note: Spoilers for Aikatsu, Aikatsu Stars and Aikatsu Friends (episode 27)
Despite the huge casts, there has always been that character in Aikatsu who’s at least second in importance to the story, just below the protagonist. They are their best friend, their childhood friend, their eternal rivals, etc… Whatever their relationship is, this character will hold just as much significance. You can say they are the deuteragonists of Aikatsu.
Teppuu is a manga about women’s MMA. It was written and illustrated by Oota Moare and was completed just around mid-2015. I had been looking for a MMA manga at the time and this title was the very first recommended to me. Now how does it hold up?
Trails in the Sky the 3rd, as it’s name already suggests, is the third and last part of the Trails in the Sky trilogy. It’s a… weird addition to the series, as the entire thing feels like a massive fandisc. That doesn’t mean it’s not good though, far from it, it’s just different.
