Primas: A Plot of Nightmare (HXL) – bonutzuu’s (obscure) manga archive

Primas: A Plot of Nightmare is a 2008 manga by Okazaki Tsuguo, and takes place in the HXL universe. Taking place in 1989, it follows the story of 10-year-old Hiroki, who unwittingly made a contract with Blue Flame Primas, a four-inch-tall fairy thingy with the capacity to destroy the entire universe.

This is an action/fantasy/sci-fi/comedy manga with old school art style, but what made it funny wasn’t the comedy aspect, it was that it was cringy in general lol.

Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Utsutsu kowashi-hen: there is no chapter 4 – bonutzuu’s manga archive

Soooooo I read Utsutsu-kowashi a long time ago and I thought I’d wait until there were more chapters until I continue. Turns out, there are only 3 before it was discontinued for unknown reasons.

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)

A.D. Angel’s Doubt: Tenshi no Uso – bonutzuu’s manga archive

Force is the infamous fourth son of the Caluanthes family. He is the black sheep of the nobility: he dresses in over-the-top ‘bird of paradise’ clothes, stays only in shabby inns, turns every trip into his personal dining tour, and only has friends from lower-ranking noble families. Everyone mocks him behind his back, except Eiri Lawrence. Eiri is the total opposite: he is the perfect second son of the Lawrence family admired by everyone. A chance encounter brought him closer to Force and his entourages, and so the story of truth and deception within high society begins.

A.D. is a 2-volume manga by Aki that was discontinued after the second volume. (The author said in the cover jacket that it was gonna be after the first one, but there’s two.) It has beautiful and intricate art and an interesting set of characters.

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.

Amazing Thailand Phuket Countdown 2021/2022 was a bit of a disaster

Andrea Bocelli! The greatest tenor of our time!

So… uh… do the organizers even know who he is? Do they even listen to him?

UPDATE: Andrea Bocelli performs at Phuket's to welcome in 2022 | Thaiger

I don’t usually write posts like this, since this blog is for anime/manga/light novel stuff, but about six years ago this was a lifestyle blog so I guess this isn’t so out of place. I wanted to just forget this ever happened but I can’t listen to Andrea Bocelli peacefully after what I consider that the Thai organizers of the event have disrespected him. I have to get this out of my system. So, here’s what happened:

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.
