My Thoughts on Neon Genesis Evangelion

A great many people wrote about Evangelion, so I guess I’ll throw mine in too.

From its fame, I went into Evangelion expecting it to be this super entertaining, super intense, mind blowing philosophical emotional rollercoaster mecha anime about a boy nobody likes. Real Evangelion was different from what I was expecting, though. It’s a lot more… quiet and reflective, I think.

Chimeraland Review – ambitious game, but not my thing

Chimeraland is a survival fantasy open-world game where you play as one of the game’s various races and just kinda… live life, I guess.

This game manages to be captivating yet annoying at the same time. There are many systems in the game, and I will give my opinion on some of them.

That’s me incubating my new pet.

Character Creation

FURRIESSSSSS—-ahem. Excuse me. This game has the most extensive character creation I’ve seen in any game ever, and also gives a lot of freedom. You can make your character into anything from pretty young ladies to Eldritch abominations. And, you can choose your own voice for your character! Lives up to the advertisement. My favorite part of the game, honestly. The devs put a lot of effort into this one aspect of the game, and it really shows.

(not my video, just thought this is the coolest I’ve seen so far)

Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger Episode 11 – 12 Review

Sheesh, how long has it been since I last wrote a review for this series?

First off, I am sorry for misspelling the word “Ark” all along. Gosh, first it’s box, now it’s Ark, what is my problem with this…

The final two episodes of Tenrou wrapped up the story. Mikhail, under Yevgrav’s control, yanked the Ark away from Yuliy, and Tamara passed it on to Yevgrav. Yevgrav then killed Bishop and consumed the Ark, and transformed into a weird gargoyle. Because of his new strength, he no longer cared about curing rabies, causing Tamara to be disillusioned.

Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyoubi (Sunday Without God) – vol 9 light novel ending spoilers and this and that

Sunday Without God had been published in my native tongue (Thai) and so I had a chance to read the light novels and find out what happened after the anime. However, the publisher on the Thai side put volume 9 on hold for untold reasons, and I’ve been left hanging for ages.

So… I have two choices. Either I try to get a copy of the Japanese version (my proficiency is only at N4 and I doubt I would have fun reading the thing when sometimes I have problems understanding the book in my native language…) or I wait forever for it to be released in Thai/English.

Or…just read the spoilers!

So I have gathered bits and pieces of spoilers people put on the internet for you to read, along with my thoughts. I can’t guarantee their accuracy as to what actually happens in the story, but hopefully this would be better than nothing.

Norn9 Vars Common Mobile – first impression review

I will do a review on the Norn9 mobile free version, since the full version is not available in my region.

Norn9 is an otome game that follows a bunch of teenagers with supernatural abilities as they journey across the globe in a mysterious flying ark in order to reach ‘The World’, a peacekeeping organization with unknown goals. The World’s existence is top secret, so naturally, these teenagers’ journey has to be strictly confidential… however, the crew soon realized they have two more people than they were supposed to be carrying (not including Sorata), and because of that, there may be enemies among their ranks.

Which one of them are actually fakes who snuck on board?

Back in 2016, I wrote a review for the Norn9 anime (which is this one). I think many of the comments I wrote there still holds for the game.

Bye, King’s Raid – just another King’s Raid post

So I’ve decided to leave a game I’ve been playing for 5 years. What happened?

It’s normal to grow sick of a game, but after staying with it for so long, that game becomes a habit and a part of life. It becomes harder to quit after investing so much of your time (and perhaps money) into the game.

But I feel like after so long, my love for this game has died out completely. The only thing stopping me from quitting for the longest time was my weekly guild raid runs, and even that felt really tedious. I’m no longer excited for new content or balance patches that the players have been asking for since forever. I wrote a lot of guides for the game, including beginner’s guide, content guide, and all heroes overview, and one day I just don’t feel like updating them with new info anymore.

For a while I’ve felt like the first line of QUEEN BEE’s Kaen, Dororo‘s opening theme. ‘Party is over, but I still want to dance.’ The party is King’s Raid.

It’s not the lack of new content or the lack of communication between Vespa and the players, it’s just that I’m so tired with the game’s instability and repetitiveness, and trying to keep up with the META that changes with every patch (most of them are new heroes that old players like me haven’t saved enough resources to build lol). I haven’t built half of the heroes I wanted to build, but I don’t feel like it anymore when I know that the heroes I built will probably be useless.

King’s Raid was ‘a game you play with love’, as they like to advertise themselves back during the open beta in 2016. The Vespa staff on the Thai side were super friendly and engaging with the player community. This died out when King’s Raid expanded (the staff were replaced by bots), and died completely when JP server launched. Events after that just became ‘for JP whales’ and the other servers were pretty much just secondary. This is completely normal, you treat people with money better, sure, but at least don’t trigger the Korean players’ rage so much… (Notably the fanart and hero design contests. Vespa never had another one because almost every entry that made it past the first round were JP, only one from TW/HK server I think? It’s okay if the quality of the work was actually superior but I feel that there were so many good works from other servers that just flew under the radar)

Josee, the Tiger and the Fish Movie – life is beautiful (the pandemic cannot stop me from watching this in theaters)

Note: this is not much of a review as it is a record of my experience watching this movie.

Bangkok is a crazy city. If you’ve been here once, you’ll get what I mean. And because it’s always so crazy crowded, the pandemic hit us hard and Josee got postponed twice before finally coming to the theaters at the beginning of November 2021.

Even though it’s during a pandemic… the department store that housed the cniema was practically overflowing with people. Especially with kids from the nearby school who were finished with their Saturday classes.

I was already burned out by wading through crowds of people (it’s like Black Friday crowd every single weekend, gosh) to the cinema to buy tickets. I almost shoved a bunch of highschool boys out of the way since they were crowded in front of the ticket machine. I brought my Asian mom with me because she was worried that I’d be in the only person in the theater like that time I was watching Violet Evergarden Movie in March, and she offered to pay for the tickets. So we got the premium couch at the back of the theater because she wanted to sleep throughout the show.

It was the last weekend before Josee left theaters, so the cinema already took all the posters down. I had to make do snapping a shot with my laptop screen instead lol

So we grabbed lunch and waited 30 minutes of advertisement before the movie finally started.
