Summer 2017 – Weeks 5 & 6

It feels like a week’s break isn’t enough for me to catch up on the other stuff I’m doing. Yikes. Nevertheless, I’m back on my regular weekly blogging, folks. Made in Abyss – Episodes 5 & 6 I was expecting a more adventure-filled approach whilst we’re in the Abyss. You know, the kind of thing […]

Summer 2017 – Week 4

Wasn’t feeling well during my weekends after catching a slight cold, but that’s not stopping me from watching muh animu. Made in Abyss – Episode 4 While Made in Abyss boasts one of the most impressive soundtracks this season, knowing how to use and edit its diegetic and non-diegetic sound is another story. Episode 4 […]

Summer 2017 – Week 3

It’s quite a slow week for anime in general. Not sure whether or not it’s a side-effect of me focusing on other media, or the line-up this season isn’t strong enough to compel me to write something. Made in Abyss – Episode 3 Made in Abyss awfully reminds me of those classic JRPGs I grew […]

Summer 2017 – Week 2

Made in Abyss – Episode 2 Despite being taciturn in its exploration during the first episode, Made in Abyss adapts a more verbose route this time around. Regardless of what its means of exposition is, I still found myself immersed in whatever Made in Abyss shows/tells me. Its world is just that good. Sadly though, […]

Summer 2017 – Week 1

I was meaning to begin my Summer 2017 coverage next week but whatever. Made in Abyss – Episode 1 I love fantasy. And I adore fantasy that does world-building right. Exploration plays a huge part in a fantasy story’s narrative, and being able to grab your audience’s intrigue right away is indispensable if you want […]

Spring 2017 – Week 13 (END)

I only have 4 episodes to cover for this week. Summer 2017 will kick-off next next week, along with it shows this season that will be carried over. Sakura Quest – Episode 13 I’ll be including my Sakura Quest coverage into my weekly seasonal posts. Expect to see more of it this Summer. Anyways, yeah. I […]

Visuals and Narrative

Supposing that I am a painter. I have in mind an image of a person staring through a vast, open space clutching a fidget spinner on his right hand. How do I bring about the life of this image onto my blank canvas? I’ve been seeing enough arguments about ‘visuals vs. narrative’ on my Twitter […]

Spring 2017 – Week 12

Sooo I took at peak at next season’s line up and as usual nothing grabbed my attention to warrant further interest/research (well, aside from the Ballroom adaptation). Maybe I should watch Kado or Kemono Friends in the meantime? Alice to Zouroku – Episode 12 (END) And Zouroku saves the day yet again with another scolding. […]

Sakura Quest – Episodes 11 & 12

It’s fine to stay who you are. Regardless of what you think of yourself — be it a dragon, an unemployed “food fighter” or what ever — one of these days you’ll meet someone who you can see eye to eye. As long as you don’t shut yourself off in a cave, you’ll never miss […]

Just a thought on NieR: Automata and Little Witch Academia

Some NieR: Automata spoilers ahead. Read at your own risk. I’m playing this game. It’s a high-paced, action-packed game wherein you control an android wielding weapons ranging from a katana to a two-meter long greatsword. The combat is addictive, ecstatic even. But it makes me sad. 40 hours spent, I finally reached the game’s exalted […]
