Anime Fan Art: Levi Ackerman

Levi was so cool in yesterday’s episode. The animation was great. Who else is watching Attack on Titan Season 3?

Thanks to those who encourage me to do more art. My passion for drawing died a long time ago, but encouragement makes me want to draw again.

Angels of Death – Impressions

Episode 4 was released today and I have to say… I am very disappointed with the series overall. This anime series is based on a game.

Synopsis

Rachel wakes up in a creepy room and quickly learns that her life is in danger because a killer is on the loose. She discovers that every floor has a killer and in order to escape the building she is in, she must go through each floor, with a different killer waiting for her.

The first killer is Zack, and due to reasons he joins Rachel. They work together to escape the building.

I loved the first episode, probably more than a lot of other bloggers did. I thought the premise was interesting, and thought Zack looked cool. I liked his craziness and thought that Rachel was a level-headed character. There were graphic scenes in the first episode, so I thought the series would be scary.

Sadly the first episode raised my expectations too high, which led to bitter disappointment with the later episodes. Let’s start with the main characters. Rachel was like a normal person in the first episode, running for her life and hiding from the killer. At the end of the first episode, she lost all her personality and became listless. I found it extremely hard to relate to her character, and increasingly became more and more irritated with her. She doesn’t have any drive and doesn’t react to anything. It’s kind of tiresome to watch her, honestly.

For the first three episodes, I liked Zack. He was a huge reason for continuing the show, but the fourth episode was a disappointment because I realized how stupid he is. I don’t have strong opinions on the antagonists either. None of the characters are likable, and that’s really important for any story.

Now let’s talk about other elements of the anime. Any scariness in the show was in episode one. The rest of the episodes so far have been lackluster. I think the problem is that they try to be funny which takes away from the experience. We are reminded that we are watching something, rather than letting ourselves be absorbed with the show.

Instead of throwing up a rainbow, why don’t you show me actual vomit

I tried really hard to like this show. Even when other anime bloggers were expressing their dislike for the show, I was more optimistic. However, the fourth episode was terrible and I’m thinking about dropping it.

What are your thoughts of Angels of Death so far? Will you be continuing it or dropping it?

Unboxing: Disney Gold Apple Necklace

I’ve never done an unboxing blog post before, so I thought I could do it with this. Relatives from China gifted us a lot of presents, and this is one of them.

I didn’t expect gifts at all, so this was a huge surprise. I opened the box and saw Snow White’s red apple. At first I thought it was a beautiful ornament, and then…

Doesn’t this look an ornament? Please tell me I’m not the only one…

Then I realized you could open it, and inside was a necklace made out of real gold. O__O There is a laminated Certificate of Precious Metal Test, saying that it’s a gold necklace.

There are other papers too, and that’s how I found out that the name of the necklace is <>. I think that’s beautiful, especially since I was feeling blue.

The necklace is part of the 3D series.

^_^ Everything I own is fairly inexpensive, so this is a special gift to me.

Less Blue

I was feeling blue for a while but lately I’ve been feeling much better. A few things helped me. The first was Sudoku.

Honestly, I don’t think Sudoku is fun. However, I was sleeping for 12 hours and then remembered a time when I was very productive. It was when I played games such as Sudoku, chess, and mahjong. I decided to play Sudoku again and later that day I felt energetic enough to get work done! I don’t think it’s a placebo effect because Sudoku stimulates your brain, apparently. My current time is under 10 minutes, and my goal is to finish a puzzle in five minutes

Another thing that helped me was BiSH’s music. BiSH, also known as Brand-new idol SHiT, is a Japanese idol group. Sometimes the girls stick their middle finger during performances, and some of their music videos have them killing creepy men. They scream in some songs too. I think that’s the coolest thing ever. Their songs sound so good. I listen to their albums on Spotify. My favourites in their Fake Metal Jacket album:

  • BiSH -星が瞬く夜に
  • MONSTERS
  • beautifulさ
  • SMACK baby SMACK (I prefer the 2017 version in THE GUERRiLLA BiSH)

Homegrown cherry tomatoes

The cool part about this (in my opinion) is that these are grown in a pot. There are a lot of plants at home, including green onion, an assortment of herbs, flowers, succulents, indoor plants and underwater plants.

It’s also good to buy fruits and vegetables locally. I have a ton of apricots from the farmer’s market!

Posting this in case you forgot what I look like when I’m not in cosplay lmao

Who else didn’t cry while watching Violet Evergarden? Getting called stone cold and heartless was quite amusing. Hahaha! Still, it was a lovely anime with beautiful visuals.

I bought a dress today.

I prefer colder weather, but cold grass jelly tastes so good in summer. I’ve moved on from drinking grass jelly drinks and now I’m eating the actual grass jelly. I add brown sugar and hot water and it tastes yummy after cooling it in the fridge.

Not my picture

I know a lot of people add it to their milk teas. I like that too, but I usually just eat out of the bowl like that. LOL

Listening to: Red Swan by Yoshiki feat. HYDE

Yup, it’s the Attack on Titan Season 3 opening. I know some people don’t like it because it’s not Linked Horizon. It sounds amazing to me.
