    Confession time; one that it’s hard to admit.

    I’m struggling. I’m trying. This is my perpetual state right now. How do I start reading books again? How can I remove myself from this huge reading slump? Aaah, I’m so frustrated because I haven’t felt this. Ever. Promise. Before when I said I’m in a reading slump it meant that books that I read successively didn’t impress me. But I still read. I always read. That was what I called slump before. But now, I have zero motivation to—

    Tokyo Ghoul Ep. 4: where things are rushed.

    If I watched Tokyo Ghoul episode 4 without any knowledge of the manga, I would have been probably still gleeful like I was when I watched the first episode of the anime. It has the spunk so to speak. But having read the manga and saw how fast-paced and different the order of events and of course the alteration of some details, one is to worry for succeeding episodes. It means that it’s likely to move this way for the—

    Sky’s the limit so fly, Karasuno! Fly!

    Let me talk about Haikyuu! by Haruichi Furudate and why this series is an awesome sports manga. I have fair share of fun with sports animanga like Slam Dunk, Eyeshield 21 and Prince of Tennis. I did like Kuroku no Basket so I might as well included this one. But I wasn’t prepared for the awesomeness that is Haikyuu! and the adorable, I’m-so-rooting-this-guy protagonist, Hinata Shouyo. I remember asking my sister which series should I start (choices between Kurobasu and—

    What do you know…I’m craving for more shoujo.

    Now that I have finally caught up with shounen series I’m following (with exception of One Piece, I’m still on Punk Hazard arc but I did caught with the anime. Freaking Bartolomeo stole my heart! He embodies the entire One Piece fandom!). I decided to read some shoujo manga on the side. It all strated when I finishing catching up with Ao Haru Ride (and I’m freaking scared because something is about to happen to my ship, but I’ll rant—

    When I root the other guy in the love triangle (aka I read Ao Haru Ride).

    I have bunch of anime I wanted to watch that currently still ongoing. But curiosity once again got the better of me and decided to check the first episodes (just so I know if the waiting is actually warranted) of these shows. So far, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki–kun and Ao Haru Ride piqued my interest from the get-go. But I decided to read Ao Haru Ride because of the positive vibe the first episode gave me. It turns out I hated—

    That rare occasion when I actually paid attention to my blog’s stats.

    And by attention, I meant I was curious enough to know my visitor’s activities when they visit my blog. Some take their time browsing and others leave immediately (after seeing that they will not get anything from me, I really don’t blame them :P). I have in house web analyzer and I still use a third party site like statcounter. Yeah, for someone who doesn’t care, I sure have done a bit of effort to install this stuff, is that—

    Top 10 list that I was supposed to post yesterday.

    Note: I was supposed to post this last night but electricity was cut off due the heavy storm. So here you go, better late than not posting. Right? It’s been a while since I posted here. Don’t worry, my awesome readers, I wasn’t gone, I’m just doing something on the side (maybe designing for someone *winks, winks* and for myself? Yes, I’m a tease.). But since I can think of anything to post and I feel that’s been too long—

    I’m going to devour Tokyo Ghoul! (my initial reaction)

    I’ve been eyeing Tokyo Ghoul (東京喰種-トーキョーグール-) ever since I saw the summer anime list. There’s something about that creepy mask that spoke to me (ok, that sounds really, well, creepy *chuckles*). Everyone has been raving about it and here I was fidgeting in the corner because I’m afraid to start a series that my gut feeling is telling that I will love it but stopping herself for the reason that she’ll end up frustrated because she needs to wait weekly. Well,—

    So Shingeki no Kyojin Chapter 59…

    Ah, I’m so relieved when I read the latest chapter of Shingeki no Kyojin. I already had this nagging feeling that he’s going to be ok, and he’s not going to die. I don’t think Isayama is that harsh (despite the countless deaths that already occurred in the series. I mean, I’m still heartbroken over the former Levi Squad.), besides, he’s too freaking, not popular per se, but kinda important that I have this gut feeling that he prepared something—

    It’s too powerful…the cast that is!

    I was looking for new anime to watch (I’m not starting any anime from the summer list yet, even though I’m so excited to watch Tokyo Ghoul!!!). I stumbled across this series Kamigami no Asobi 「神々の悪戯, Mischief of the Gods」. It’s an otome game turned anime…I think. I wanted to watch a fluffy series after the intense series catch up I’m doing right now. And for the first time ever I recognized Kamiya Hiroshi’s voice (I didn’t in Haikyuu! I’m—

    Hunter x Hunter x is back!

    I finally caught up with Hunter X Hunter. Ok, I just watched post Greed Island aka Chimera Arc. I have few pending anime that I’m also trying to catch up (such as FMA: Brotherhood—I know, it ended quite a while now, but, but, but!!! I still fail to watch the entire thing, plus the manga, I need to finish it! Nurarihyon no Mago, then maybe, just maybe Bleach? But I did finally finished Ao no Exorcist. I’m little disappointed with—

    Heart Beats: Prince, Games and Words!

    I’m not really the biggest shoujo fan. I know, it’s weird because when it comes to books, I always crave for romance but when it comes to anime/manga, I want the action type. I do ship couples in shounen manga. In fact I am more heavily invested with the couple in this genre. The scarcity of the romance makes it more fun to me. I know how masochistic can I be. But when it happens, it become more than what—

    Cut open my skull; Look into my head.

    If you didn’t know…yet, I’m a huge fan of Amano Akira’s Katekyo Hitman Reborn. Like massively obsess with the series when it was still running. It’s my all-time favorite series. I heard that she did the character design for this series. I was quite surprised when I decided to look around and saw the characters. It is indeed made by her. The characters particularly the main ones were heavily resembled her older & debut work. Not to say I’m complaining.—

    1001 Nights? Nope it’s Magi!

    It was only in college when I finally  appreciated Arabian Nights, like I said many times over my book blog, I’m not too fond of reading before…ok, maybe literature in general. But during our World History class and my professor had us watched a movie about it did I realize how amazing and powerful the story was. Oh yeah, this post is about Magi: The Labyrinth of Magi 「マギ」. It’s safe to say without me verifying that this series is—

    Getting back to your old favorites.

    When I watched Shingeki no Kyojin, the otaku me was still half asleep. While I massively spazzed over Levi, Eren and the others, I wasn’t completely awake to go back around watching and reading old series. But with the help of the couple of new ones, I have the strong desire to revisit old favorites. And you know what, it turns out they are favorites for a reason. So Kishimoto was doing something so nice for the naruhina shippers (and—
