    March in a Nutshell~!

    I don’t like how fast the days go by! I really don’t! Summer is quickly approaching (thankfully it isn’t unbearably hot like last year but afternoons get warmer) and well, it’s April and I’m still way behind my yearly goal (which kinda personal so I’m keeping it to myself~). I have procrastinated heavily this month! But I guess I did some productive things here and there. Like I cleaned up my blogs pages and formatted them neatly (remove some things—

    On Spotlight: 우리사이느은 (Our Relationship Is)

    On Spotlight: A special post where I feature some of my favorite reads! Apart from my occasional “great rec post!” I’m also keen on giving full or in-depth post on series: may it graphic novels or in the future books that I truly loved. And perhaps you might pick this up and read it, too! It’s gonna be webtoons series for the next couple of months, I’m telling you know. I’m so obsessed with them right now, and it helps—

    Before the hype. During the hype. After the hype. (an anecdote…or not)

    Hype—you either hate it or follow the fad. When it comes fandom this is double edge sword for me. It’s nice to see similar minded people raving about something you absolutely adore. But when it comes irrational blind following, then it all get pretty ugly really fast! You still love the peace and cozy time when you’re part of fandom at the humblest beginning. Just few people; you all get giddy. The majority don’t get what you’re talking about. You’re—

    Winter 2017 Wrap-up! (+ Spring ’17 Watch List)

    Time to wrap-up things, people! I must say that in entirety, this season was pretty slow. I have favorites but NGL I have never dropped so many series as fast as I have for this season. Says so much how I loathed some of them (OK, two of them to be more precise!). Ah…let’s get the show rolling~ 1. 3-gatsu no Lion – aw~ I guess my favorite parts of the series won’t be included but that’s OK! If I—

    Dear manga series: You’re way too long!

    If it goes down to choosing, I always prefer long series.  The longer time I invested that richer the reading experience to me! (And I’m pretty good on managing my reading list, especially for currently on-going manga series.) But it still depends to a lot of elements; I mean would I like a poorly dragged down story just to say I love long series? Nope, chances are I might drop that series. And lemme say this I have tons of—

    Why taking notes should be part of your blogging routine!

    It is just a simple task; get a paper/notebook and pen (or your phone if you’re like me glued to their phones) and write! Sometimes you’ll get idea from the strangest things (and not just about blogging topics, I also told you how sporadic my design inspiration comes from!)  You always need to be ready when the inspiration sparks. And trust me it sometimes happens in the most inconvenient times so you need to be ready! So why as simple—

    The Unorthodox! Let’s talk about antiheroes!

    I don’t mind morally gray characters. I shared my thoughts already about how my favorite characters don’t represent my moral principles. I enjoy every spectrum necessary to elevate a narrative; if making the protagonist unethical then so be it. I’m way past that naïve thinking of a simple plot-line of good vs. evil. DEATH NOTE デスノート Now, antiheroes. Not really the most original idea an author will come up with nowadays. Many already did that, some were brilliant, and some—

    What’s On My Reading List?

    It felt like I did a lot of reading then I didn’t… I once again succumbed to the world of re-reading (you always cannot not find me rereading—I grab every chance I get). For brand new series, yeah, I didn’t do much this month. For several titles (ones that are marked with * to be precise) are actually those I tried before, dropped or halted then miraculously picked it up again and finally finished it.  There was something about last—
