Considering the re-reading value.

6 years ago | filed under Fiction
[caption id="attachment_10189" align="aligncenter" width="663"] Do you even consider the re-reading value of a book?[/caption] When I give ratings I rarely consider the re-reading value of the book. I weigh a lot of things, but maybe half of the reason (or perhaps more than that) is always about its enjoyability. Did I enjoy the book? Did I have fun reading it? Were the characters relatable/enjoyable? You know, those usual stuff. But I never thought of adding the re-reading value to my factors when it comes to assessing (at least deliberately). In fact, I have books that I gave high ratings, yet 

Summer wrap up! + Autumn…

6 years ago | filed under Regular
It’s time you cool kids for me to wrap-up summer and welcome my most anticipated shows for fall! It’s pretty strong season still, despite me bemoaning in every given opportunity about how incomparable it is to last year’s line-up. Some of these shows will end next week but I decided to post this because I’m inclined to forget about it and I don’t want to do this when I’m already watching the autumn line-up. So yeah, I’m rambling right now! Last notes for Summer 2015 Akagami no Shirayuki-hime — it was announced that it has a second cour to be 

Relax and Continue on!

One of the main reasons why I insisted on blogging despite my obvious lack of writing talent is to acquire that skill. But I’ve been doing this for quite some time and while I do think I improved *coughs* diminutive progress *coughs* but I’m nowhere where I want to be & often reasoned that it’s not my mother tongue (I think this reason is starting 

Boruto: Naruto the Movie

(I can't find Toho's versions of this trailer, so I used Madman's instead) I feel like doing a review as well as to express my gratitude to local movie exhibitors that are gambling on anime movies. I’m one of those excited for releases such as this movie I’m gonna talk about—Boruto (the latest movie from the Naruto franchise). I watched The Last (Naruto the Movie) on theater last May. I was disappointed for the very long delay but it was gratifying to see a movie you’d wanted to watch on the big screen. The Last was (ironically) my very first 

Books are tax free?!

[caption id="attachment_10130" align="aligncenter" width="663"] Have you heard of UNESCO Florence Agreement? I haven’t until now.[/caption] I’ve always been afraid of buying books on bulk online because of the customs fees/taxes they will charge me. It’s not about the act of paying (because that’s our duty as citizen of this country although it is kinda infuriating to know that it goes to corrupt politicians’ fat bank accounts); it’s actually how they charge you. Would you believe some people who had horrible experience of paying almost if not more than the amount of the book they purchased? It’s really disheartening to buy

It is freaking me out that I’m already doing the August Wrap –up! It’s how fast the days fly by really terrifies me. I can’t believe that it’s already September! Like, even as of writing this post that fact still hasn’t (wouldn’t) sink in. But some good stuff happened last month, most notably my reopening. Just in case you haven’t visited my blog in a while, I rebranded. I’m now (oh also, I have new twitter handle I’m now @rainvogue (it’s a play of words (in addition all the names I originally want were taken), but mostly because it
