The Legend of Muay Thai: 9 Satra Review (+ a brief history of Thai animation)

Come to Thailand this past week and no doubt you’d have run into a poster of 9 Satra, the new and booming Thai animation with a budget of 230 million baht. The reason this movie is the talk of the town isn’t because of the budget or because it’s something made by Thai people. The movie itself is a real deal.

9 Satra is available in both English sub and dub. (The sub is accurate, and the dub has really good feedback, some say the ENG dub is better than the Thai dub.)

9 Satra is the story of Odd, a humble and sweet young man destined to save the Kingdom of Ramthep from Yaksas, ogres who enslaved and kill humans for no apparent reason. Odd’s mission is to bring the “9 Satra”, a weapon used with the arts of Muay Thai, to the Prince of Ramthep in order to free the kingdom. Accompanying him are the sassy&badass sky pirate caption Xiaolan, first prince of the fallen monkey kingdom Vata, and a Yaksas in exile Asura (Crimson Ogre). However, the King of the Yaksas, Dehayaksas, will not let his rule of the kingdom get shaken by a mere boy…

Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku (Magical Girl Raising Project) Review

Magical Girls Raising Project is… I’m gonna drop the bomb here… Surprise, surprise, this is an anime about a bunch of cute girls killing each other off for survival.

Rest assured, I have not seen Madoka so this review will not be comparing this anime to Madoka in any way, shape, or form.

Okay, I’ve calmed down somewhat. I finished this anime months ago. I still remember most of its story and what I feel about it. I rewatched parts I don’t remember, so…here goes. Continue reading

Amnesia Memories: Ikki Memories

80.pngThis extra part covers what Ikki told the heroine about their relationship after she confesses that she has amnesia.

There isn’t much going on. Ikki just goes off about how cute the heroine is and what he might’ve done for her if she had told him earlier. Ikki teaches the heroine how to put sugar in a cup of tea and draw a little heart in it as a finishing touch (I can’t seem to imagine drawing a heart in a teacup…) Because she’s so cute he just wants to spoil her because he caused so much trouble during the game and confesses his weaknesses. In hopes to win over her heart, he wishes to do everything to be with her forever. The End. Continue reading

Zombie Kiss 2: Love, Desire, Vengeance

 http://www.punica.co.th/upload/editor-pic/Book/%E0%B8%AA%E0%B8%B2%E0%B8%9B%E0%B8%A8%E0%B8%9E%E0%B8%99%E0%B8%B2%E0%B8%87%E0%B8%9F%E0%B9%89%E0%B8%B2/Zombies%20Kiss%20Cover%20Fin-02%20(1).jpg

When endless ‘desire’ birthed a ‘love’ that costs lives

A beautiful bride’s carcass

Enchants all whom she meets

But underneath her beauty

Is a curse that brings tragedy

“She will eat when we do not see, when we see, we will…”

“Angel’s Corpse”

.

.

.

This world is my laboratory.

To me,

Watching humans struggle

Is similar to observing lab animals.

But humans are different from animals.

They do not only struggle to survive.

They are ravish, envious, determined, destructive, and murderous.

Humans only struggle for one and only one thing.

Their “desires”.

Plans for March-April Book Fair

This has nothing related to the usual stuff I do on this blog, but I shall make this to-buy book list for the sake of showing everyone that I do not only read scanlations but I also support the author where available. Eh…not that anyone has commented on that, but anyway! (I feel guilty reading scanlations, that’s what.)

So if you’re planning to visit Thailand…well, the books are all in Thai so I don’t even know what you plan to do if you’re going to the book fair. But hey, you’re always welcomed!

Youjo Senki Ep 6-7 Review: Jingo Loli Strikes Again

Faith… With strong faith, one’s heart is invincible…even though your body ain’t.

The concept of ‘faith’ seems to play a role in Youjo Senki’s main theme. The battle between the atheist vs. the believer was the highlight for me. It shows Tanya’s apathy towards the enemy, and the reason why the show’s titled “Tanya The Evil”. But why…why does a guy who prays wholeheartedly lose to a cruel little girl who god happens to hate?
