I’m not sure if you remember my post on My Top 6 Taiwanese dramas, but I would like to add a drama to that list! At number three, it’s Autumn’s Concerto (2009). It’s one of the most popular Taiwanese dramas.

This drama just gets sadder and sadder. I continue it because I know it has a happy ending but you need a tissue box ready. One tissue box might not be enough! It’s a love story and the events that happen to the couple are unfortunate but they are meant to be together. Fair warning: I did not like the male protagonist at all in the first episode but he becomes a really good person pretty soon.

This drama reminds me why I love Taiwanese dramas so much. I’m hesitant about writing a synopsis because I really don’t know how much to spoil. It gets progressively sadder so it feels like everything is a spoiler to me.

Also I’m bummed that I can’t find my Death Note books. I wanted to write a blog post on Death Note and use the books as references but I guess that’s not happening until I find them… IF I ever find them. TT_TT

Anime Fan Art: Shuu

A Facebook friend asked me to draw Shuu from Tokyo Ghoul for her. ^^

Special thanks to Zel for motivating me to draw! A lot of the times I just watch anime and feel too lazy to do anything…

Cosplays: Gumi & Koushi

I cosplayed as Gumi again from her song, Nankai Ren’ai (Difficult Love). It’s a cute song about liking a boy.

I also cosplayed as Koushi again from Haikyuu!! because I realized I never took a photo of the shorts.

THE PLAN

Guess what? I’ve done 37 cosplays in the two years I’ve been cosplaying! The 38th cosplay will be posted soon. I’ve cosplayed as anime characters, vocaloid, and game characters.

Characters I would like to do again:

  • Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece – holding Chopper plush
  • Mitsuha from Kimi no Na Wa/Your Name – never got a chance to do full body shot
  • Yuki Nagato from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya – full body shot with book
  • Saber from Fate/stay night – full body shot
  • Gumi Matryoshka – full body shot
  • Gumi Difficult Love/Nankai Ren’ai – holding love letter
  • Gumi Difficult Love/Nankai Ren’ai – full body shot
  • Misa Amane – with black nail polish and makeup

I think that before I spend more money on cosplays, I should get these done first.

Best JRPGs for Xbox 360

If you are interested in playing a lot of Japanese role-playing games, it is better to buy a PlayStation. However, there are a couple of great games exclusive to the Xbox 360.

***AMAZING***

Lost Odyssey (2007) – Xbox 360 exclusive

Outlook-LostOdysse

This is my favourite game. I didn’t buy this game at first because I thought I wouldn’t like the mature looking graphics but I was completely wrong. This traditional turn-based game is a gem.

The game touches on the theme of eternal life. Small spoiler, but the main protagonist is immortal. It’s interesting because immortal players will automatically revive after a few turns. Nonetheless, you’ll still die if all your players are dead. Within the game are short stories on the protagonist’s memories, and they are treasures themselves. If I could buy a physical book containing the short stories, I would do it in a heartbeat. I feel like I’ve learned something about life through reading these stories because it makes you contemplate life… The music is very beautiful.

Blue Dragon (2006) – Xbox 360 exclusive

Outlook-51bR4j-gdh

This is a great game for the JRPG beginner. This was my first game and it’s a traditional turn-based game. They made a manga and anime adaptation based on this game series because of its good reception. The game is definitely better than the manga and anime.

Tales of Vesperia (2008) – Xbox 360 Exclusive (not including Japan), but will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Windows later this year.

Outlook-6867e627-5

My biggest complaint is that you can’t skip cut scenes. If you die while fighting a boss, you’ll have to skip over all the text which is annoying sometimes, especially when you just want to kill the damn monster.

Regardless, this is an amazing game. It’s not turn-based, so it requires button smashing LOL. However there is still strategy involved in the game which makes it fun. The characters are quite likeable. I’ve laughed at several parts of the game because of Yuri’s sassiness.

Since it’s getting the Definitive Edition this year (meaning it will be available on other platforms), do buy the game because it’s so much fun.

***OKAY***

  • Enchanted Arms (2006) – Recommend, but not the best
  • Final Fantasy XIII (2010) – Breathtaking visuals, but I couldn’t get into it
  • Star Ocean: The Last Hope (2009) – Couldn’t get into it, but the reviews are pretty good.

***POOR***

  • The Last Remnant (2008) – Don’t do it.

Sick but Happy

Some of you guys know that I hate the sun and heat. Well, a couple of days ago I got a fever and it didn’t go away until I spent the night downstairs on the sofa. It returned after I spent the next day in my room… probably because my room is on the third floor. I also hate winter so RIP me.

That’s why I’ve decided to stay indoors for the next few days. I cancelled my plans for today and watched a lot of One Piece. I feel a lot better now but in the beginning I couldn’t eat solid foods so I just ate almond flavoured tofu LOL. I really like it!

Back in July 2017 I wrote a blog post on a DIY idea for your room. (Click here.) Now I have photos! The left one is a polaroid of my friends and I in a family pose LOL. On the right is a picture I printed at Walmart off my phone. It’s from the time I went to a concert performed by EXO.
