My Little Talk about Pretty Rhythm (Mostly About Its Protagonists)

They announced Pretty All Friends recently, and I’m so hyped. Whether it’ll be a crossover movie or another reboot based on Pretty Rhythm, I wished for the best outcome with this.

Since I love Pretty Rhythm and Pripara, and how meaningful it is that at least Rainbow Live is that one kid show you should watch once in your life.

I decided to talk a little about Pretty Rhythm series in this post revolving around the protagonists, and how I relate and adore them, in according to which I watched first.

A Fanfiction to Remember — Shinjuku Phantom Incident: Final Impression (Obviously with spoilers)

To be honest, I’m not a very good reader in FGO, and I tend to skip stories every single time and only relies on summaries.

However, there is something charming about Shinjuku Phantom Incident that led me to read through all of it— well, aside from getting Holmes in gacha, falling for him and wanting to read the story where he’s the most prominent.

[Fate/Grand Order] Lose Your Way by Round Table Translation

So, I’ve been really busy with Fate/GO lately and I’m doing the Shinjuku chapter of Epic of Remnant right now– since it has quite lots of my biases (coughHolmesandthatArchercough) it’s quite fun!

On a fling, and to fill out this blog since it’s lacking update lately, I decided to translate the theme song, ‘Lose Your Way’ that’s on the PV. I love it, and I think it’s very suiting to the classy theme of the Shinjuku chapter— especially on Archer of Shinjuku and his role in this chapter. Well, saying how it connects to him and his true name would be a spoiler!

Anyways, I do plan to translate/transliterate Seirennaru Heretics (Salem chapter theme song) sooner or later since it’s currently very hyped, haha…

Kanji lyrics I’m using for this translation are from here. Thanks!

No Matter What, Humans will Always Desire More!

Juggling between Comifuro 9 preparation (which went out quite well, I’m glad!), mobile games, drawing, classes, social media, a 1-week family trip to Tokyo and Osaka, and sometimes my deteriorating mental health, I haven’t really got any time and mood required by my own standard to write a blog post, even when I had so many ideas!

But here I am, attempting to keep this blog alive for another time.

This time, I’m going to talk about a slice of my fandom life as per usual. Well, more likely about video games, including gacha ones and my bad spending habits. Yes….

Sol Qamar (Short) Appreciation Post

I tend to update this blog whimsically, and right now I’m going to do it! Was getting ideas to post about how Idolmaster series affect me since it’s the series’ 12th birthday, but…

…then I saw this one certain post on a matome blog about the Idolm@ster Cinderella Girl unit Sol Qamar and I just had to do a short English introduction to them too, inspired by that post!

‘Why’, you ask? Because I love them! Especially Layla! And they deserve so much!

Aya Yuuhi’s Con Trip Tips!

It’s been a while since I updated this blog, hello everyone! I received a very special email asking for ‘first-time visitor guide to cons’ from LVL Up Expo— an event I probably can’t really visit for real since it’s on the other side of the globe in Vegas, but I’d love to someday— and that’s what I’m going to write here.

Though most of these 10 tips are based on my own experiences in Indonesian cons and they might not work in different countries’ events, I hope it can be helpful!

Everybody’s Your Friends! Pripara and Kemono Friends Finale Impression

This week had been a rough one for me if it wasn’t for these two fun series’ finale that brought back a smile to my face. There’s a reason why I compiled my impression of these 2 animes’ finale into one; mostly because how similar they are, and how their popularity gives me hope in the anime industry and fandom in general.

Both Pripara and Kemono Friends lies their popularity in a childish story and narrative to make it fun and enjoyable, and that is exactly what I’ve been looking in series.

Anyways, let’s just talk about Kemono Friends first! I’ll try not to spoil much.

[Review!] Haikyuu!! TV Anime Team Book 1: Karasuno

Well, I’ve been into Kinokuniya a lot and see this book, but not until a week ago I decided to pick it up; this tiny book about the Karasuno team members of Haikyuu.

This book is quite old actually because this book was published even before Season 2, which explains why Kinokuniya have a little stock of them. To be honest, I thought this was going to be one of those purchases I regret— but apparently, it’s not!
