    Twenty Sixteen: Throwback

    When it comes to some things, I try my best to be optimistic! (for a naturally debbie downer that’s big!) But for me 2016 was kind, sorta, maybe—definitely…MEH? I was beaming with positivism and excitement when the year started but not everything I had in mind happened. BUT!!! It doesn’t mean that it was an awful year altogether! Sure there were things that I certainly wanted to blossom but it didn’t. But there were things that I didn’t expect did—

    Onward Twenty Seventeen!

    I need to confess: while I do look forward to my winter list, I’m not that super excited (so maybe I am for Gintama but that’s given!) But I don’t consider those as a signs of things to come. In fact I’m still hopeful that some of the manga series I’m wishing hard to get green-lit will still get it (I got one of the 5 wishlists, and that saying something!) And I’m also open to trying new or originals—

    Merry Christmas!

    It’s actually a tradition here in my blog to greet you everyone a very Merry Christmas! Ever since I started blogging I always make sure to greet everyone since I love Christmas! It’s the day of sharing but most of all to remember that we have received such precious gift from God! And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said—

    2017 Goals & Resolutions!

    Oh that time again! I had very humble and quite realistic goals for this year. But even with that I still managed to slip through it and unable to do at least two of them.  One, I didn’t beat my reading goal last year—in fact I failed miserably! But it was a personal decision to not force myself to read books. I’m not into reading books right now (a friend of mine shares the same sentiment; we couldn’t find great—

    Kawaii Gift Ideas!

    Last year I gave you some pretty cool otaku gift ideas! I was contemplating whether to give another round a try. But I decided to put a little bit of twist to it! So today I’ll be dishing out gift ideas—for those who love cute or kawaii(可愛い/かわいい) things like these! As I said last year— extend the season of giving by gifting your awesome friends and loved ones some of these awesome, awesome gifts! (It’s still not too late to—

    Best of the Best 2016!

    Last year (the time when my blog was experiencing some sort of identity crisis ), I temporarily replaced this feature of mine to “Fave Picks From this Mix” because I still did some book reading last year and I was in a sort of a limbo of how should I label everything. But I finally sorted it out and I think my original feature objective still fit the idea (not without alteration!) that I was concocting for this year. And—

    Fall 2016 Wrap-up! (+ Winter ’17 Watch List)

    Ah, it feels like the three months just flew by and here I am jotting down my last impression of the anime I’ve watched this fall!  It was fairly good line-up despite how messed up the schedule for me (everything was stuck in the weekends!) Of course, I dropped one show (sorry Bloodivores, I just totally forgot and the lack of motivation didn’t help at all). I also didn’t try the two of the series I thought I’ll try! 1.—

    It’s not perfect but I love it!

    Reading is always subjective. And interpretation and consumption of these stories vary from person to person! And that’s great! This makes stories differently and storytellers try their hardest to give us something unique and entertaining all the time, all along catering to our various tastes. So even though some people may not like what we do; and sometimes they even nitpick parts of the stories we love, we can help but still love it! Yes, my favorites are not perfect,—

    Regular: What’s On My Reading List?

    Honestly I didn’t do much reading last month! I blame Mystic Messenger for that! (well, don’t really blame it because I LOVE playing it!)  But I still did some reading although it was kinda few and majority are shorties too compare  to my massive hoarding I did last October! I’m pretty excited that Kimi no Na wa is gonna screen here! There’s already a tentative date (December 14, hope it pushes through!) I’m super intrigued with this movie. Now, I—
