the otaku wonderland
I was tagged by MedievalOtaku for the Five Flaming Hotties. While making this list, I notice the thing that ties most, if not all of these characters is “passion” (and lots of red too). Because come on, nothing speaks “flaming” more than the word “passion”. I suppose you can alternatively treat this list as “Top 5 Passionate Characters” or something.
Anyway, enjoy the list, in no particular order:
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.
Because anime possesses the ability to express even beyond the capability of real life, anime characters eating good food is always a fascinating thing to observe. And since it’s April 1st, it’s time for another dumb post — below is a list of Top 5 Anime Gourmands.
Nearly 20 years ago (damn, I got into this bandwagon late, huh?), Shenmue shocked the game industry with several mind-blowing game features and mechanics that have become commonplace among games even today. But Shenmue’s biggest charm is undoubtedly this — it’s world. At the time of it’s release, emulating real life areas in a game seemed like an unfeasible task, but the madmen at Sega done it — amazingly, even. The attention to detail given to this game helps create an extremely immersive atmosphere, one where you can sense the developers’ care, creativity and sincerity in every corner of the world.
Further than that though, it’s also the way Hazuki Ryo interacts with this world, and the sense of progression you get as you journeyed along Shenmue’s resident protagonist that becomes the main appeal of Shenmue’s world.
Note: Spoilers for Drakengard, Nier and Nier: Automata. Read at your own discretion.
2017 was a great year for video games, and Nier: Automata joined the list of games that have been the recent talk of town. Using the knowledge and experience Yoko Taro gained from working on past titles — Nier: Automata is a beautiful game that truly stretched the boundary of video game storytelling.
