Why I’m Not Such An Active Manga Reader

manga

This is how I usually read manga:
1. Check it’s status-read if it’s completed, wait if it’s still ongoing.
2. If it’s still ongoing, wait for god-knows-how-many-years.
3. Bored and check some manga statuses, only to realize a manga you previously wanted to read had been completed ages ago.
4. Finish the manga.
5. Repeat.

Because you know, reading ongoing manga is 2hard4me.

Koisuru Natsu no Last Resort Review

koisuru21

Pulltop Latte is a sub-branch of Pulltop which focuses more on moege. Koisuru Natsu no Last Resort is one of Pulltop Latte’s title-a fairly fanservice-y visual novel but a surprisingly decent read overall.

Boku dake ga Inai Machi – Ambitious but Has Great Potential

Me every anime season.

Me every anime season.

Whenever a new anime season occurs, I mostly have no idea what kind of anime I’m looking at other than sequels from established series. I’m not an active manga, light novel or even visual novel reader, and don’t really follow their announcements that closely, so these anime titles are like alien words designated by a secret society. This is why I’m not sure what to say whenever people ask me “what are you watching this season?” because quite frankly, I just have no idea. I always rely on anitweeter’s responses and opinions to see which anime I want to watch after they are aired. You can argue and say “everyone’s opinion is shit though”, but by doing this, I can at least filter the massive amount of selection every season to just a selected few.

I digress. Anyway, one anime this Winter season in particular, Boku dake ga Inai Machi is one everyone in my twitter TL had been singing praises of, and while I’m slow, having finally started it, I can see why.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC Review

TrailsSC_2

Note: SC is the sequel of this trilogy, and if you haven’t play FC (the prequel), note that this post will contain FC-relevant spoilers, since the story picked up immediately from FC.

Ahh, Trails SC, I have been waiting for this shit for 5 years! Okay, maybe not that long, but close (checking the date of my review on the prequel, it’s written on August 2012, but I probably finished the game even way back). Here’s the thing though, when you waited that long, expectations will just keep building up, how would Trails SC fare against all those expectations though? Well, it more than enough met my expectations, and more, and considering how long I have waited and how much my expectations have been building up, it’s really a testament to how good Trails SC is.

Kai’s Favorite Anime of 2015

Coming up with a favorite list is harder than I thought.

Coming up with a favorite list is harder than I thought, especially when I want to limit it to just 5…

It’s the start of 2016, so with it, come another post of my favorite anime of last year. Again, I want to make it clear that despite this list being numbered, it’s not listed in any consecutive order at all, even my honorable mentions should have been included in the main list. The thing is-I want to keep these lists short; ideally 5, so entries past the 5th entry would have to be honorable mentions.

Anyway, here are my favorite anime of 2015.
