Beatless: Why?

Now that I am finally started to catch up with the many shows of the season, I realised just how boring some of the watches have been. And Beatless, is one of the prime examples.

MAL link:

Taking a closer look at Beatless, we can see just how much wasted potential there is. First up, the music and sounds of this anime is great. The opening song by GARNiDELiA, especially, is one of the great opening songs to grace this season. The soundtrack is also quite good and is able to bring out the mood when needed. And then, we take a look at the art and animation and realise just how much wasted potential there is as well. Smooth animations, great art and overall very aesthetically pleasing look makes this anime quite a feast for the eyes. The plot and story too, shows much interesting promise as it can make for another great discussion topic on AI vs Humans. Character wise, having hIEs being a thing, and even one being a main character makes for a very interesting cast that could have been expanded upon to make the story even more fun than it already it.

Well, with so much going for it, what exactly went wrong?

The overall execution. I’ve never personally read the source, but according to my friend, it was pretty good, which is the whole reason why I tried watching this show in the first place. However, it is quite disappointing to have the MC be this bad. After (somehow) getting himself into a life threatening situation, and getting saved by a hIE, his first response was not to ask or find out about what is happening to him. Instead, he chooses to bring his saviour to his house and…enjoy a dinner together? Why?

After the whole ordeal, they enjoyed their daily lives together. Again, why? You were literally just in a dangerous position, and yet you choose to stick around sucking your thumb after you got to safety, and passively wait for things to happen to you, not to mention the complete lack of thinking on the MC’s part. In fact, this MC is so 1-dimensional in terms of characterisation we might as well proclaim him braindead…
Either way, there’s also the stuff happening with his friends. One friend got into trouble, blah blah, and again, I really need to ask why on a lot of decisions being made here. There just really isn’t good enough reasons for 90% of the things happening in the show up to episode 6 for me to not question the actions taken by the characters.
E.G. Oh no I hate hIEs so I’ll put my life on the line to do some terrorist work against hIEs even though I have a family worried about me, a sister and friends who constantly tell me not to do foolish things, and yea, I don’t regret the decision at all… WHY?? These huge “why”s appearing in my head everytime there’s these stupid decisions basically ruined the show for me, as there seems to be a missing part of logic in the events that transpired that I’m not catching on to…

So yea, I’m lost and bored because of the plot, I don’t like the way some of the characters are written, the MC really needs to stop being so useless and stupid, and we also need to fix this weird SOL elements being mixed in between these grave situations. I’m not going to be around to see if it’s being fixed, but I assume not given how the rating on MAL keeps dropping…

So yea, Beatless is a bundle of wasted potential and regrets. Oh well, at least that opening song more than makes up for my time spent on it.


Final rating: 6/10
Verdict: “You have have forgotten, but you will die if you are shot.”


A complete and utter lack of motivation.

Not sure why, but I just felt like not writing at all for the past few days. Just didn’t feel the drive to. Not for the blog, not for my own original story series, and just writing in general.

I do have a few things in mind that I want to write about, along with some drafts that I can finish, plus the Winter 2018 end season review that I have to write soon, so hopefully I can get back to writing sometime soon, or else I’ll be in for a world of pain…

Either way, sorry about the lack of any content. Why you people put up with my non-existent posting schedule is beyond me, but I love all of you readers nonetheless.

PSA: Please treat us scrubs better.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from the part time jobs I’ve did so far, it is this: capitalist society is bad.

While do we, the bottom feeding scrubs, get more hate than those sitting at the top of the pyramid and driving us like slaves? More often than not, I get customers unleashing their fury on me, with me being unable to do anything even though I really want to help. Granted, it’s the minority but geez, I just feel anger bottling up inside.

One of the things that ticks me off majorly despite my really gentle temper would be getting blame for something I am not responsible for. It just makes me pissed. And I acumulated that anger throughout the part time jobs I’ve done.

Luckily, there’s also the fair share of grateful people who thank me for my help. Seeing others become happy makes me happy too, and I would love to do a flying kiss to them if the society allowed such a thing and if that doesn’t look weird.

That aside, back to the topic at hand. I simply cannot comprehend why despite earning the least in the work heirachy, we get the biggest dumps taken on our heads.

So please, on behalf of all people who work like I do, don’t take out your anger on us. Most of the time, nothing changes even if you do. And furthermore, we are often the people least qualified to receive your fury.

*Yup, just wrote this because I wanted to. Sorry if there’s any incoherency and if this post seems bad.

Pre season preview: Spring 2018

It’s time for anime to spam those sakura petals! [Anime: Hyouka]

The winter season is almost over. Along with it, the many good shows we’ve had this season. However, there is no need to fret! And the reason for that is pretty simple–the spring season is even more awesome! Why…? Well, after looking through all the shows available for next season and picking the ones I would like to watch…I realised I wanted to watch 23+ shows. It’s just that every show is promising and can be really good! Well, time to introduce these, and hopefully I can convert some of you to join me in this grand seasonal adventure for Spring!

Arrangements are in no particular order!

Announcements galore

Right, so for posts today…obviously, since this post is here, we don’t have any quality content. Well, mostly because of how busy I was. Well, instead, you can take these announcements!

First off, “Music Week” is now over. Thank you readers for all the support shown! It was great writing up recommendations for so much good musics, and I’m looking forward to continuing the “Music you can’t stop listening to” series in the future.
In case you have no seen the final day’s post yet, the link to that is here.

Second, a collaboration post between me, Irina, Astral and Keiko is now up! We invite anyone to join in, and at the same time, please go read up the details on it here! Hope you get entertained!

Third, since I’ve pretty much used up most of my saved drafts now, the posting might start to get semi-irregular. It will still be trying to stick to 1 quality post per day, but please do not be surprised if it suddenly becomes 1 quality post per two days and such. Thank you for your understanding!

Fourth, as a continuation to the third announcement, yes, I am writing stories now. It is not exactly Tales of Caczmat, since I’ve been running into a writer’s block trying to rewrite the series, but it’s something I’m trying to make good. That is, the Narratives of Glauvania series. The short story portion, with Tris Asher as the main protagonist, is the collaboration post. The continuation however, in the form of Lilla Asher Chronicles, will be a long running series that gets updated on Wattpad. I do not wish to spam you readers with posts about this, so please follow the story over on the Wattpad link here in order to get updates when a new chapter comes out. I will try to semi-frequently update it, but no promises. It can take anywhere between 3 days and a few months. As a bonus, the prelude and the first chapter are both out at the moment! Please check it out and give me any feedbacks regarding the direction the story is going.

Lastly, I would like to officially extend my hand out to all the anibloggers out there. Our discord server “Aniblogger Coalition”(stupid name, because I can’t name for sh*t) has been growing for a bit since it’s started, and I still would like more people to join. If you would like a place where you can contact each other easily for collaborations, or simply want to discuss about thing easily instead of relying on the horrible wordpress commenting system, please come join us over on our discord server!
Well, in order to not get any spams from random people, the server link will not be made public. Please comment below with a way for me to contact you (preferably email) with the server invite link if you want to join!
I hope to see you there!

Well, all in all, it was just a bunch of short announcements. Hope you have a good start to the week!

See you all around!

Music you can’t stop listening to: THERE IS A REASON [“Music Week”: Day 7]

Welcome to the last day of “Music Week”. This means that from here on out, you won’t be seeing too much of this series. After all, I have other posts that I have to get to too. Before you begin reading the rest of this post, however, I would like for you to know the existence of the double post that was made in order to make up for yesterday’s lack of posts–A lovely collaboration post. You can read the exact details here.

Now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about the music this time. What would I have selected to end off this “Music Week”? What could be a good song to share on this day that, to some degree, means farewell for these type of posts?
Thinking that for day and night, I thought of the perfect song. One that will make up for my slightly lacking of sincerity 50 followers post. One that will convey my feelings for you readers better than just a simple thank you.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you…<<THERE IS A REASON>>, the theme song for the No Game No Life Movie, No Game No Life: Zero.

Song name: THERE IS A REASON [Konomi Suzuki]

Anime: No Game No Life: Zero (MAL)


Since this particular MV cuts away some parts of the music…I feel obliged to give you the option to listen to the song in full. However, PLEASE support the artist by buying the full song here if you like it:

Creative Aniblogger Collaboration: Short story shenanigans–Couples & Parks?

Hello everyone!

As you would have already guessed, yes, this is the second post for the day. Horray! Instead of simply Day 7 of “Music Week”(which you can read here), you get a bonus-special…something absolutely amazing!
*This is absolutely not because of my inability to find a song for today

Now then, it’s finally time to present this collaboration to everyone! [Anime: Re:Creators]

What is it? The impatient ones amongst you might already be asking. Why, it’s a lovely little initiative started up by our folks over in the discord server–a collaboration!
In fact, this collaboration is the reason why our discord server exists in the first place. It is the start of everything, quite literally. Without this collaboration, I wouldn’t have started the discord server with the 5 of us and naturally, others wouldn’t be able to join either.
Reminiscing aside, it’s time to finally get on with what the collaboration is about.

The entire premise is quite simple, really: the people participating were to write a short story of no more than 10k words. We were each assigned a random genre of anime(yes, anime) to write a story on, along with the common theme of the need to include a “couple” and a “park”. Now, I wouldn’t spoil which genres each of us got, and I wouldn’t say mine until the end of the story, so expect each story to be vastly different 🙂

First up, we have Irina and her wild ride right here. Just when you thought her talents have their limits, she breaks you expectations and goes for more.
Next, we have Astral and his fantastic story here. I loved the progression, the characters, and everything that has to do with it.
After Astral, we have Keiko’s story here, imbued with her very best, and one that I enjoyed reading a lot.
But of course, last but not least, you have me. What is my story like…? You will have to read it to find out, but know that it’s not for the faint hearted…
*Please go read the stories that the others wrote, because they deserve your recognition!

Well, before we begin the story, I feel compelled to talk about certain things related to this collaboration. Such as the people who would have been able to join but couldn’t due to circumstances, they deserve some time in the limelight too!
We have Shoka and his issues with parents and blogging preventing him from doing anything really, hence his recent inactivity…
We also have Iza, who sadly couldn’t join us in time because of real life.
And then we have the loyal TPAB who wouldn’t forget his promise with Iza and thus wouldn’t be joining us this time.

All of them participated in this small project/collaboration in one way or another, and of course they were integral parts that made this possible today. TPAB especially, since it was his idea that brought us together.

And yes, this collaboration took forever to come out. The initiative started August last year and was planned to finish within the year. Yes, it started over half a year ago…
If there’s anyone to blame for how long it took, it’s definitely me. I procrastinated too long in writing my story during the time, along with other issues. Well. At least the project is out now right? Right…?

I think I’ve taken up too much of your time just going on about what the collaboration is actually about instead of actually letting you read my story, so I’ll stop now.

Before you read, there is one FINAL THING I have to say, and it’s quite important. First, there are 3 different ways you can read this story, with the first being just reading on, and reading the story from this post itself. Another method would be to download the rtf format using the link here, and using a word processor such as Microsoft word to read it. And the third way, would be to access the Wattpad site for it. Yup, I uploaded it on Wattpad, for certain reasons I will get to later. The link to that is here.

Second thing I have to announce would be that this is actually part of a series of stories I will be writing named <<Narratives of Glauvania>>. The short story is but the starting of the series, so if you want more, the link to the continuations in at the end of the post.

Without further ado, please enjoy yourself with the story. And if you think you would like to try your hands at writing a story too, go ahead! Before that, however, please leave your thoughts of our stories below!

“Music Week”: Day 6 is not here.

…I have failed…for today at least. I didn’t find any songs fitting for a “start of the weekends” kind of theme, therefore I have nothing planned for today. Well, the music for Day 7 is already prepared, so on top of that…expect a double post.

I hope you enjoy your weekends!

Music you can’t stop listening to: Donna Hoshizora yori mo, Donna Omoide yori mo [“Music Week”: Day 5]

Day 5! And…today is one of the more special days! Why? Because it’s Friday! For anyone who is over the age of 5 really, you would know the importance of Friday. Well, if you are reading this post, you definitely are over 5 years old!(I hope…)

Well, anyways, what’s the special song I have lined up for this special day?
It’s <<Donna Hoshizora yori mo, Donna Omoide yori mo>> from Imouto Sae Ireba Ii.! Did this come as a shock to anyone? Well, I’m here to bring justice to this song that was as underrated as its anime source!

Song name: Donna Hoshizora yori mo, Donna Omoide yori mo [Aira Yuuki]

Anime: Imouto Sae Ireba Ii (MAL)

I couldn’t find any official MVs, nor vevos…so we are going to have to stick with a “pirated” video for this. Please support the artist by buying the song here!
