Happy New Year, Everyone!


This is just me popping in to wish everyone a Happy New Year! 2017 was officially the worst year for me and I couldn’t be happier to leave it behind. This blog and all the people I met here helped a lot though, so I’m thank fullto everyone here. 

I don’t do new year resolution because they are made so you can break them, so this isn’t a new year resolution, more of a personal goal. I want to try reading books from every part of the world and I want to learn more languages so I can read some of them in their original glory.

I have this weird obsession with numbers and I don’t really like the number 2018, but I did like 2017 and that didn’t turn out well for me. I hope the number eight, while possessing an ugly shape, actually turns out to be a good year for everyone. 



Hello, so I just wanted tell you all, that is for anyone who cares to read my blog, I might slack on my episodic reviews for the next three weeks. I have semesters which involves five paper and two assignments and it’s giving me a headache because I distinctly remember  being a mass comm student but all I have been reading is marketing for the last couple of months and I hate commerce subjects, I thought I left that stuff back in school. I wanted to get good grades because a girls gotta be good at something, right?

Anyway, I just wanted to say I might not be around because I disappeared without saying anything last time and that was rude and I just felt guilty about that. 

Tag: Five Flaming Hotties Or People I Would Never Meet

Recently, I have been feeling like I’m over my head with all the seasonal reviews. Then there’s my upcoming exams, events in university and the guilt of two other posts I’ve been putting off. So, when Shadowcat99 tagged me, I wasted no time in writing down my crushes. What better way to waste time than writing about people who make your heart skip a beat?

On that note, check out  Shadowcat99’s list  My Five Flaming Hottie Hubbys: Tag because she has excellent taste. Thank you for the nomination! These things are always nice. 


The Rules (I’m copy pasting them)

  1. Mention the name of the blog you were tagged by, as well as the creators of this game Realweegiemidget Reviews and Thoughts All Sorts  to all blogs involved and including the picture above.
  2. List five of your greatest hotties from TV and/or film, i.e. crushes/objects of your affection, including musicians or sports stars too.
  3. Tell us how you were introduced to them and why you like them/what appeals.
    Add some appealing pictures.
  4. Tag seven bloggers for their Five Flaming Hotties.
  5. Post the rules.

I feel like this list is supposed to be about people I find attractive visually but I don’t have that many people I consider good looking so this list is a mixture of personality and looks. 

1.Shah Rukh Khan 

Let’s just say I worship this man. He made my childhood, filled me with ideas of romance that can’t ever be reality, and made particularly creepy characters irresistible. I’m not sure exactly when or at what point I became a huge fan, as far as I’m concerned, I’ve always liked him. He has this gaze, the one that feels like it can set you on fire, even through the camera. There’s this movie,Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, where he played this middle aged guy with moustache and no sense of self preservation whatsoever and at the end of the day, I was still in love. He’s extremely self aware, charming and one of the wittiest people out there. And he has dimples! If he wasn’t everything he is, all he had to do was smile and I would be sold. 


2.Ren Tsuruga from Skip Beat!

Probably the only fictional character on the list, he’s just beautiful. I can’t believe Nakamura Yoshiki drew him that good when her skills weren’t even polished. I’ve never felt much attraction for anime or manga characters, I love them but it’s never a soul consuming crush, except Ren. I think I’m in love with the way he’s in love with Kyouko. He’s also a clueless, too tall, dorky protagonist with anger issues and a manipulative streak. According to the mangaka, he’s the sexiest bachelor in Japan, and who am I to refute her claim?


3. Benedict Cumberbatch

First of all, poor guy. Spellcheck is convinced his surname is Cumberland. I can list so many things that makes him incredible. His voice, personality, self depreciating humour, again dimples! Dimples are all I need to sign my heart out to someone. Like most people, my obsession started with Sherlock. A mop of curly hair, intelligence(duh he’s Sherlock Holmes) and a complete inability to navigate social situations. Before I knew it, I had hunt down every project he appeared on and still continue to follow his works. Also, if you still don’t think he’s hot, here’s a picture of Doctor Strange for you. 


4.Fawad Khan 

The only guy in the list who’s just plain hot. Look at him, he might as well be a painting. Confession: I went to google to search for pictures of him and got sidetracked because, damn, this guy’s good looking from every angle. His super polite and generally shy nature is a bonus. I first saw him in this Pakistani Drama, Zindagi Gulzar Hai, where he played Zaroon, a rich boy later turned man with conservative outlook and insecurities. A character flawed in a way I can never approve of, and yet, Fawad Khan managed to make him appealing as a hero. He’s actually a singer turned actor from a band called Entity Paradigm, one of the pioneer of mainstream rock bands in Pakistan, so let’s just say his voice works in his favour too. 


5. Kim Seokjin From BTS

I can safely say all the seven member in this group are both hotties and cuties. Since I had to narrow it down, I’ll settle on Kim Seokjin. I’ll just say this, he trended on Korea as car door guy just for coming out of a car. This is also the most unexpected one on the list because hey, someone in my age group for once, but also because he makes Dad jokes and has the best laughter in the world. He’s the groups visual and vocalist and I first saw him on their music video Dope. Can you believe he was twenty two then? I thought he was seventeen. I shouldn’t need to mention this but I love his voice. 



1.Fueled by Smiling


3.Anime Vista





I have one reasons for this nominations, I’m curious! I wanted to tag some other people but I think they’ve already participated. 

Also, I’m extremely proud of myself for finally taking part in these chain things in time. 


Black Cover Episode 1- First Impression

Asta and Yuno are two orphans raised by the church in a world where magic is everything. Asta has aspirations of becoming the Magic King despite having no magical affinity and considers Yuno his rival.

Simple and shounen enough, right? 

It’s exactly as it sounds. There wasn’t particularly anything striking about the first episode, nor anything too bad. The visuals are average at best, though it’s a improvement from the usual stuff by Studio Pierrot (If you don’t count stuff like Letter Bee).  

We don’t get to know much about Yuno other than the fact he is stoic, strong and loves and respects Asta a lot, which leads him to ignore Asta in order to acknowledge Asta’s will. Huh, that sounds complicated. 
There is the usual stock standard side villain who is meant to anger the protagonist and reveal his hidden powers- a demon in this case. 

I only have one complain. Can protagonists for once in their life not screech like a monkey to get their point across? Every other word that came out of Asta’s mouth were loud, almost melodical screams and while partial fault lies in the inexperience of the voice actor, Asta himself isn’t exactly a likable character at the moment. However, I’ll give him credit for trying his best, enough to learn the physical aspect of fighting on his own, and not sitting around waiting for power to fall into his lap.

This is only the first episode, so I’ll wait and see if it will take a new direction or if the execution is capable of making old, routine lovable. 

Made In Abyss Episode 13- The End And The Beginning

Made In Abyss can be said to be many things. Mainly, it’s a story about explorers. People who can’t sit still, people who are in search of something, albeit the main cast of the show are a little too young compared to other adventurers out there.

Nanachi isn’t an explorer(Reg, too). She isn’t out to unravel the mysteries of this world. She’s in search of something, something more solid and hers. That treasure turned out to be Mitty.


Reg and Mitty are similar in many aspects. Starting from being not quite human currently, to living for the sole purpose of protecting their friend. It makes me wonder what would happen to Reg if Riko were to go through Mitty’s fate. 

There are also parallel between Riko and Mitty. Cheerful, optimistic personalities with a  burning urge to reach the bottom of the abyss. This could be the reasons that Mitty and Riko’s soul connected- giving more ground to the theory that the soul that are lost in the abyss, eventually returns to it.


A premonition?

I’ve said this before, but when it comes to this show, the goodbyes are immensely painful. You don’t even realise if you’re attached to the character, if you even like them, and yet you find yourself sobbing.

Nanachi did her best, laboured away for Mitty so she could finally find peace. Then when she finally found an way, it wasn’t easy to say goodbye, despite preparing for a long time. Despite, losing her friend a long time ago.


On that note, Bondrewd is a pathetic excuse of  a human being who has truly lost his humanity, and probably deserves the same ending he subjected countless children through.

The later part of the episode was somewhat filler like, but it was nice after the emotional roller coaster. Nanachi joins the small gang, and if this show ever gets a sequel-something I don’t have much hope of- it would be interesting to explore the new dynamic.

With this, my favourite show this summer has officially come to an end, leaving with a hopeful note and fulfilling the promise of an wonderful ride it introduced in the first episode.

Just a story



He was the victim.

She was a serial protestant.

She protested against rape, murder, soft drinks, junk food, herbal products love and life and anything and everything that could be protested against.

She hated life, she hated those big money sucking corporation and she only wished for the world to be a better place.

All her protests fail away when his lip touched hers.

She still protested. She will always stand up for what she believed in, but now it was with  hope in her eyes.

Okay, I know this isn’t that good. Actually, it’s horrible but I just wanted to try the daily prompt thing out.
