Saekano Volume 10: A Creator’s Melancholy

0fea8d0717

Today, Saekano volume 10 is finally released; and while I haven’t got mine to read this time around, the summary’s basically out. This won’t be a detailed one, but it should cover the important points.

EDIT: Even if I’ve picked up my copy of the book, saekanosummaries has written a more detailed summary, so I’ll refrain from making a complete one. Continue reading

Oregairu Another: The Other Conclusion

As some of you know, the upcoming PSVita visual novel adaptation of Oregairu Zoku will be bundled with an OVA focused on Iroha’s story from volume 10.5 (likely the “Surely, Isshiki Iroha is made of sugar and spice, and something nice.” chapter). With Oregairu A or ANOTHER (an alternate storytelling of Oregairu by Watari with some different points) ending last month with the release of Zoku’s final BD, I feel like the series has come a long way and that the end we have all been waiting for is just over the corner. Since the final BD was released on April 28 and the visual novel will be released on July 28, so I figured I would schedule this post to be available for public starting from May 28, just to match. =)

About True Love & Getting Hurt – WA2 (& Oregairu) Random Ramblings

Just finished re-reading White Album 2 CC & Coda. Afterthoughts and musings here may contain spoilers of the lengthy visual novel and other forms of media involved. You can think of this as me talking to myself, really. I haven’t written anything in a while, so I figured that I have to get things out of my system.

Kantai Collection: A Year in Retrospect

It has been exactly a year since I decided to start delving into the world of the browser game that had been garnering considerable popularity at that time: Kantai Collection, or Kancolle for short. This time, I just want to talk a little bit about Kancolle and about myself.

Saekano Volume 8: A New Beginning

Saekano is one of my personal all-time favorite light novels, and I have been all over volume 8 since I got my hands on it last month. The introduction of the “new” blessing software, the dynamics of the heroines, and the charm of Megumi got me hooked even more. With story written by White Album 2’s Fumiaki Maruto and illustrations drawn by Cradle’s Kurehito Misaki, Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata (How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend) is showing signs that it can still improve with each new volume; I am personally hoping for a satisfying ending this time.

By the way, here is a summary of Saekano volume 8 that I wrote by myself; although I said “summary”, since this is my first time posting one, I tend to translate the whole part from some scenes and simply narrate less important ones. If you can bear with that, then read along. And for those of you who are anime-only viewers, this is a spoiler territory, so proceed with caution.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso ~10 Years After~ – Prologue

This is a fanfiction that I thought I’d try to write, highlighting the possible resolution to the story of Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (Your Lie in April). While I have already made the framework of the fanfiction from couples of months ago, I have been busy with things so I could only start to write it now. I hope you can enjoy this clumsy writing of mine to your heart’s content.🙂 Continue reading
