Eromanga-sensei

Eromanga-sensei has been generating steam as one of Spring 2017’s most anticipated anime, and it’s certainly not without reason. Originally penned by Tsukasa Fushimi who was known for his previous popular—albeit controversial—work, OreImo (Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai), the show doesn’t take long to establish what it’s all about: a slice-of-life romantic comedy involving a pair of siblings; only this time, we get to look at the story from the glasses of a high school light novel author instead of a plain highs school student. Also, Fushimi made it clear from early on that the characters aren’t blood related, which the series compromises with its overt inclination on the romantic relationship between the siblings.

Saekano April Mop Prank Features Kiyono Yasuno in Live-action Poster

When it’s April 1, you can expect some pranks and troll announcements coming from Japan’s animation and game publishing companies; of course, Aniplex is no exception.

As you can see, Aniplex posted images of Kiyono Yasuno donning the signature outfit of her character Megumi Katou at the hill featured in the series’ various important scenes, for what’s supposed to be a “live-action announcement poster”.

While it does sound too good to be true (and it is), it would be a pleasant surprise if we get to see this happen, especially with the original cast on board. Make it happen, Aniplex!

“If an editor and a high school author start going out, don’t you think it would be a perfect romantic comedy?”
Henshuu-san to JK Sakka no Tadashii Tsukiaikata (The Right Way for an Editor and a High School Author to Date) is a new light novel series published by Fujimi Fantasia Bunko. This light novel is penned by Hajime Asano, an author previously known for his work Mayo Chiki!. Besides being an author, Asano also worked in some anime like Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans and Akagami no Shirayukihime season 2 as a key animator. The illustration of this light novel is done by 6U☆, a doujin illustrator who often draws Love Live! and Touhou illustrations.

Synopsis:

Fubuki Saehara (17) is our main protagonist, who also works as a part-time editor. He is in charge of Misa Ryuenji, a 7-year award-winning author, but… “Fubuki Saehara is my master~♪” Misa who aims to be the heroine with her writing style, seems to desire a relationship beyond work!?

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.
