Perhaps inspired by San-gatsu no lion, aka March Comes in Like a Lion, it has become a recent hobby of mine to play (and horribly lose at) Shogi. Shogi is unique, as compared to any… More
It is wrong to look to meet girls in a dungeon, right?! That’s what the title seems to translate to. Deai means meet or first encounter, motomeru means to find. Machigatteiru means machigatte (mistake/wrong) iru (there is). Darou seems to suggest seeking confirmation. Like, だろう? Seems to be ‘right?’. I have no idea how だろうか came about though.

Youkoso means welcome, Jitsuryoku Shijou means outstanding ability. Shugi means concept or ideology. Kyoushitsu, as in Classroom. Thus, Classroom of the Elites, Elites in this case being those with Supreme Ability. Continue reading “Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e ようこそ実力至上主義の教室へ”
It’s really amazing how different Boruto has been feeling compared to Naruto. The focus seems to have shifted away from simple Shounen fightings to more soft, story-like theme in Boruto, where there is a moral of the story almost every few episodes. Action-wise, a little lacking so far for the first ten episodes or so. It’s nostalgic to see children of the ninjas that you watched mature in the earlier series though.
P.S.: I dropped Naruto halfway through cause it felt too draggy with all the flashbacks and overdramaticisation towards the end. But picking up Boruto again feels great.
Shakugan no Shana (灼眼のシャナ). Nietono no Shana is the name of sword that the Flaming Hair Burning Eye Hunter wielded. Thus she was given the name Shana by the Mystes Sakai Yuuji, hence Shakugan no Shana, as in Burning Eye Shana. Continue reading “Shakugan no Shana I-III Final 灼眼のシャナ”
Accepting the fact that it is unlikely that my blog will ever be profitable, or popular for that matter, has helped a lot. Unlike many other anime bloggers in this realm (: , I certainly do not write as beautifully or have the time nor motivation to do in depth research. Neither am I as knowledgable on this topic of anime or film or literature or whatever and nor do I keep up to date with anime news.
Nevertheless, I have outlined a new objective for my blog; instead of pressuring myself to churn out content that I think would attract readers, it may be better to revert to producing content that makes me happy. ^W^) And to post whenever I feel like it instead of regularly.
My new aims as written in About:
- Keep track of watched anime and related cultural products
- Rate them to the best of my ability
- Provide recommendations to people new to Japanese Animation
- Provide trivia on the Japanese language in anime
Which helps clear up my mind a lot and curbs my desire to write “Top 10 Blah Blah Blah Anime” posts simply to attract readers. A.k.a. Clickbait.
I just hope people find the Japanese language part valuable.
Mayoeru Shitsuji to Chikin na Ore to (迷える執事とチキンな俺と, The Hesitant Butler and Myself the Chicken) revolves around Kinjirou Sakamachi, a 17-year-old high school boy who suffers from gynophobia (abnormal fear of women), which makes his nose bleed every time he has physical contact with a female. While using the men’s washroom, he accidentally discovers that the popular and handsome butler Subaru Konoe is in fact a girl. Now that Kinjirō knows about Subaru’s secret, he must work together with Subaru and her sadistic mistress, Kanade Suzutsuki, to protect Subaru’s secret from being discovered. Continue reading “まよチキ！Mayo Chiki!”
With the end of 2017, I realised that this blog lacks a strong personality backing some of its posts, especially the ones recommending anime. I guess it would be a good time to begin reviewing anime instead, and giving scores.
Another plus point that I have going for me would be my ability to understand (some) japanese, which I can put to my advantage when analyzing specific quotes. Beyond that, I need to look at anime as a whole and critique it, which I’m finding it really hard to do since all I do is watch them for every bit’s worth of enjoyment value, and thinking of whether it’s a good move as a plot kind of ruins my enjoyment. ^^;;;
Without sufficient follower backing and comments I think my motivation may have fallen apart halfway. But I’ll continue to pick myself up, no matter how many more blog counts or followers other anime blogs have, and continue on with my grand dream of making money out of this. (*T_T)
Beyond that, I would love to get to know some amazing bloggers, so feel free to comment or look me up on Twitter where I’m most active!
Seiyuu Ka is a story of Hime Kino, a 15-year-old girl who attends Hiiragi High School Academy, for its voice acting department. Her biggest dream is to become the voice of a main character in one of the most popular shoujo manga series in Japan, “Mahou Senshi Lovely Blazers”. This is difficult to achieve, however, as her voice is not suitable as a professional voice actress, resembling that of a gorilla, thug or even an old hag. Continue reading “声優かっ! Seiyuu Ka!”
