Ryuuou no Oshigoto!

A short post for this since apparently it managed to take the 1st place of Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! 2017’s Best Light Novel category.

​Ryuuou no Oshigoto! is a comedy and shogi light novel written by Shirow Shiratori (author of Nourin) and illustrated by Shirabi. Three volumes have been released so far and it seems to be positively received in Japan so far.

Synopsis:

“Yaichi Kuzuryu is the youngest shogi champion in history—the ‘Ryuuou’.

And this is Ai Hinazuru—a girl who asked him to become his disciple.

Being too young for his title, Yaichi is going to revive his shogi through a passionate disciple…

Wait, Ai-chan is 9 years old? She is an elementary school girl! And… is she going to live with Yaichi? All night until the morning? What? Officer, can we have you here, please! A comedy about shogi-holic live-in disciple.”

Will put this on the list next time.

Jealousy on Social Media

So Which Blessings of Your Lord Will You Deny~?

socmed

“Most people on social media present the “best version” of who they are. Nobody really shares their darkest moments or the many hardships people go through. It gives the illusion that their life is “perfect” when in reality we all go through things that challenge us to do and become better.

Comparing your life to others has become so easy, a simple click that makes you feel like you’re not good enough, you’re not having as much fun, or your life might be boring. All of this comparison actually affects your self-esteem and confidence level. You lower your ability to grow, because you shun yourself.”

~Quoted from @idillionaire

The best and the worst moments of my life don’t make it to social media. What I post is honest, what interests me, and pieces of who I really am. I am frankly being myself.

About Gi(a)rlish Number’s Fansub

Hi guys, just wanna make a little announcement here.

After much consideration, I’m thinking of dropping the sub for Gi(a)rlish Number. I decided to continue subbing the second episode because the simulcasts are still delayed to Wednesday and GJM dropped the show. But, since Davinci has planned to keep subbing it with better quality and typesetting, I don’t think it’s necessary to have a double release every week.

It was quite a fun experience doing this, even in the middle of my tight schedule. I hope you can continue enjoying Gi(a)rlish Number from now on. This show is certainly a contender for Fall 2016’s best anime. For those of you who haven’t watched it, give it a try!

On an unrelated note, I’ll be having my thesis defense tomorrow, so please wish me luck.
