My Anime/Manga of 2019

It’s been an eventful year. My health hasn’t been the best for the past 3 or 4 months, but hopefully 2020 will be a great year. So now, here goes my list of 2019!

(And yeah, because I had a very bad flu and some sinus problems, I’m only releasing it now. My list is also really short this year because I’ve been studying like crazy….)

I’ve decided to add a new section this year, hopefully it’s better. Without further ado, let’s start off with…

Pacific Rim: Uprising Review – the Mako Rant

I hated Uprising. I watched it on a plane. I couldn’t forget about it. That’s how much of an impression it made.

I felt that Uprising is what happens when you take a passion project and turn it into a commercial one. It’s just trying to sell you Jaeger toys. I don’t know what exactly is missing in this movie that the first movie had. Probably passion? Originality? An attempt to make a robot franchise that doesn’t look like the Japanese stuff or Transformers?

*Warning: this is a rant review.

King’s Raid 2021 Guide: List of Beginner-Friendly Heroes/Characters

Latest Update: May 2021

The previous version got so crazy popular I cannot believe how many views it has; this version is a more concise and hopefully more useful and updated version.

To start off, your first 4-person team has to have the following: a tank (or someone who can take damage), a dealer, and supports (priest/sub-DPS/CC). This guide will separate heroes by role, unlike the previous guide. I will still separate physical and magic.

There is also an FAQ at the end of the post to answer the questions I get most often. I’m no expert who can teach you how to be top 10 in every content, but I’ve been playing for a long time and I think I know a thing or two that I can share.

For an overview of every hero until Shakmeh, check here.

Violet Evergarden Movie Review – is Gilbert dead? Watching anime movies during a pandemic is kind of nice actually

And no it’s not Fate/Evergarden although the posters were right beside each other lol.

I went to see Violet Evergarden Movie in theaters today and I was the only person in the whole theater. No, in the whole cinema, even. Nobody else bought tickets in the same time slot even for other movies. I saw no one. Not even the ticket staff. Not even the door people. I could take off my face mask and cry and nobody gave a damn because there was no one else but me, sitting in the exact middle of the theater amid empty chairs. The only person I saw was the staff selling popcorn.

Okay, enough about that. Let’s move on to the review.

Übel Blatt manga ending – bonutzuu’s manga archive

My copy of Übel Blatt volume 23 came in the mail today so I sat down to read it, barely able to recall what happened in the previous volume.

I started Übel Blatt wayyyy back in 2012 when I was still in middle school, all because a manga blogger I used to like said that it was this captivating tale of revenge. It was. Until OP Glenn happened.

Fourteen people went over the border. Three were slain. Four deserted, labeled the Four Lances of Betrayal. The remaining seven returned victorious, hailed by their countrymen as heroes.

Though… it didn’t happen that way. The seven ‘heroes’ were actually the ones that deserted, leaving the remaining four to finish the mission on their own. When the four returned, the seven brutally murdered them at the border and claimed fame to themselves.

Twenty years later, one of the fallen four returned on a quest for revenge. His name is Koinzell, ex Blatt Master, now a shota elf with an amazing ding-dong. (Ref: Ubel Blatt vol 0)
