    That Amazing Feeling that You’ve Read So Many!!

    When new year comes, I’m always excited with all the new series I’m gonna discover and read. I know it’s kind so faraway but I think of the series that will eventually be part of my year-ender special, Best of the Best post and it just makes me giddy.  I love the feeling that there’s a series out there, whether it’s just coming out or I haven’t read before that are waiting for me to be read. But after years—

    Must watch and must read titles! Onward 2019!

    The anime community sure gonna agree with me on how awesome 2019 line up is!  There are so many good manga series getting anime adaptation that we all have been waiting for (I particularly keen to watch a lot shonen series + wishlist granted!!) and today I’ll be sharing you list of anime and some books that I want to watch and read next year! But let’s pedal back to this year first (before I gush out the awesomeness), I—

    Twenty Eighteen’s Best of the Best!

    It’s that time of year once again! I’m quite pleased with how my reading progress went this year. And unlike last year where it was kinda difficult process because of my very, very small pool of manga to pick! It was a happy struggle to know I have so many manga and webtoons to choose from because of how productive my 2018 is in terms of reading. So that’s the good part, the downside of this all is my anime—

    Out of sight, out of mind? Hiatuses and the long waiting game.

    Let’s put disclaimer first, shall we? This is not me complaining about authors (regardless of the reasons) or me being ice cold b*tch who could not fathom that health comes first! That’s not the topic. Personal all-around welfare of the authors comes first! Always!  It’s just me and how my feelings for the series gradually slid down after numerous hiatuses. And when it comes to series I immensely loved in the past, confessing that I don’t like as much as—

    College webtoons romance for the young adult & young at heart!!

    One of the things I love about reading romance webtoons, particularly Korean webtoons, are most of them are set in college/university. I know that people regard high school life as the peak of adolescence, or the time for many firsts! Even in my bookish phase it was all about high schools boys and girls. Shoujo manga, too. While most josei series skipped college & goes straight to work/adult life. And we all know what happened with NA? Sadly it didn’t—

    The bane of my reader’s existence! (hating a character!?)

    Tread this post with caution cos I will mention characters that I dislike with passion. Now that is out of the way, let say this first: reading for me is relaxing way to put my ginormous amount of stress looming its head every now and then at bay. So I always, always expect my read to comfort me. Of course, the inevitable negative reaction is to be expected but nothing like hating a character to ruin my reading mood! For—

    My so-called entertainment out of obligation!

    Sometimes you’re just sticking with the story out of habit! You don’t have the same enthusiasm compare to the time you started, and yet here you are still here waiting for something…something that you don’t know what it could be. No idea what’s making you stay, sometimes! Maybe you’re just like, maybe you’re just hopeful, too. Or maybe you just find that a story you can’t let go regardless of whether you’re still enjoying it or not. Yeah, there are—

    Show some love for your fave authors!

    I greatly appreciate authors and creators without them my favorite series won’t be here for me to read and enjoy! But I don’t really need to be rubbing elbow with them, I think because of my very reserved personality I’m pretty happy just reading their works and their occasional personal tidbits here and there. I do not need to know so many details about them. They have their personal lives to deal with but I’m happy, grateful even, that some—

    The highs and lows of an impatient manga reader!

    When it comes to my manga series I’m very impatient! And being an overseas fan makes it harder to bear! But thanks to the internet it makes my impatience at bay! But still, the geographical restriction is something will always be part of my manga reading journey (unless I live in Japan…hmmm)! There are definitely cons not living in Japan but I just have to make amends so even though I’m huge manga reader who’s also pain in the ass—

    Suspension of belief, how far will you allow it?

    I don’t know about you guys but when it comes my choice of entertainment, I always (always) think that it’s not real, it’s just fiction and whether I end up liking or not has nothing to do with the story’s realism. Sure, I do want some hint of it (realism, I mean) but it’s not really a great big of a deal if it isn’t—especially if the story is overwhelmingly fictitious.  It’s just too much to ask for it when—

    On full armor: do you defend your faves?

    Are you the sensitive kind of fan? The kind that minds people opinion over your faves? Do you? Well, if you ask me if I am, I will say…it depends! Even they’re my faves I’m not blind of what its flaws. I understand not everything is perfect. But what I’m after when I’m reading is not perfection, it’s about the connection I have with the stories that I read. And yet, I still see people mad about other people criticizing—

    Do I really ship in every chance I get?

    To frequent visitors or those who have followed me for quite some time now you know this topic is coming (‘cos it’s the month yo~!) And for those not in the know—hello there! I’m Mitchii  and I’m a big shipper! *clears throat* Now that I’ve stated that fact, I’m about to, yes, talk about my shipping tendencies! I was told that I ship too hard and too much?! I will wholeheartedly admit about being a hard shipper but too much?—

    I think I’ll be perpetually in love with the romance genre!

    I think “romance” genre is overly saturated; there are just so many of them already. But it is the genre of my comfort reads and I love reading it. I don’t shy away from confessing my undying love for shoujo manga—which mostly are romance stories!  Also josei! And even if I’m reading shonen or seinen sometimes I do ship couples in there as well! There’s something uplifting about shipping and seeing these characters affection grows throughout the story is something—

    2017 Statistics Report (and other geeky related things!)

    I come up with this feature when I was sorting out my throwback post last year. Although that statistic is not really based on actual numbers (because I didn’t have the time for that—actually, I just sort of forgot and I didn’t tabulate all the numbers I needed LOL failed there, self)  Anyhoo, this is just an estimate because even without the numbers I’m pretty sure about the things I read for the entire year (note: this stats/recap covers December—

    Twenty Seventeen Best of the Best!!

    This is kinda easy and somewhat kinda hard list to do. One, I reread so much this year (look out for my yearly stat report about it) that I only have few titles to pick from. It’s hard in the sense, since you know it’s the “best” list soooo they should be the best (well, they are! They are! But it felt like I didn’t have lots of contender so it was winner came by default). Secondly, not only did—
