Jan Rumination: Distractions, no social life and the search for a soulmate!

Hello all! Wow, what a surprise! Yuu enters into 2023 with their first post in a very long time. Bet you didn’t expect that.

Initially intended to title it January J__ similar to previously written 2019-20’s ‘December Drabble‘, but I couldn’t find a good word to make the alliteration. 😛

Happy (belated) new year to everyone and welcome to the new year. Time flies fast, and before we know it, it’s 2023. The previous year, I have only posted two posts regarding Romance of The Three Kingdoms game that I was so into. I know I haven’t been as active on this blog – in part due to my busy study lifeTM (xD), but also in large part due to laziness. Mostly been posting squeals on Twitter instead of actual posts. Ehe~

Romance of the Three Kingdoms ROTK XI and XIII

Recently I’ve been hooked on this game again. Although not an anime game, technically made it an anime crossover with an anime picture of Hanako-kun in it.

My first thought was: I’m tired of playing ROTK 11 which is so repetitive. Having created my own custom officers Dowager Cixi and Wu Zetian, I proceeded to play a custom scenario Ladies at War which pitted the female officers as rulers, with their husbands at their service. An refreshing twist in man-women dynamics in an ancient chinese game. Assigning my officers to my favourite female officer Sun Shang Xiang, (I love bow characters, what more her good war stat and tomboyish nature is waifu material), my force went on to crush every other force one at a time.

Romance of the Three Kingdoms ROTK 13 Fame and Strategy Expansion Pack 三国志 XIII PuK Custom Portraits Tutorial

So technically this is not an anime game, but I thought it would be helpful to anyone looking for how to create custom portraits with transparency. Because it took me a few hours to do it, even after scouring the internet for clues. I’ll include screenshots as well, and a sample bmp I made of Hanako-kun!

Tl:dr: The FaceTool provided to add the portraits cannot open bmp files exported through GIMP. To work around this, open the bmp file with another application and Make A Copy.

Tools: GIMP, Photos on Windows 10 or any other application that opens bmp file

Persona 4: The Animation

For those unfamiliar with the Persona series, Persona are fighting beings formed from one’s alter ego and summoned to fight Shadows in the alternate/ dream world.

I’d say I did not begin watching Persona 4 with any expectations at all, seeing the Genshin Impact Specialist meme made me curious what Persona 4 was about. Despite these initial expectations, and a slow start, somewhere along I started to enjoy watching it a lot. Episode 14 especially had me realise that I really liked the story telling and had grown to like the characters in it. Skip to spoiler-free if you’re spoiler-concerned.
