I recently finished my exams for the moore theological college correspondence course. I was doing OT 1 and Doctrine 1. It was tougher than I expected, but I’m glad it’s over and looking forward to the last 2 units for the preliminary theological certificate. Although I was quite apprehensive when I first started on this course, looking back I … Continue reading

Anime: Ao no Exorcist: Kuro no Iede

This special is more like an extra episode and although it came out after the series ended, it’s set somewhere in the middle of the series. That said, it’s best watched after the series, since there are some characters that make an appearance here before revealing themselves in the series proper. I thought it was … Continue reading

Anime: Kuragehime Specials

Kuragehime Specials are little windows that show the minor characters in all their glory. The minor characters are given the spotlight and we see what they are obsessed about and their love for the things that make them truly happy. At 5 mins each, they are short and funny. For an oktaku like myself, I see many … Continue reading

Anime: Usagi Drop Specials

Every anime series creates something extra to go along with the DVD. However the Usagi drop Specials are probably the first extras that are actually really special (pun not intended). The series was great, but the specials lets us have a glimpse into their everyday lives, through the 4 different seasons. It’s sweet and Rin … Continue reading

Anime: Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo

The most recent movie by Shinkai Makoto that came out in summer 2011. Considering that he created my favourite anime movie of all time, I was quite hyped up when I heard that a new movie was coming. Strangely enough, I didn’t manage to watch it until quite recently. Where to start with this movie? I … Continue reading

Anime: Fullmetal Alchemist: Milos no Seinaru Hoshi

is the new movie under the fullmetal alchemist banner. Two things stuck me the most. It wasn’t as polished as I expected it to be, this is mainly in terms of the smoothness of the animation and secondly it was a ridiculously gruesome movie. There’s no indication when this movie takes place in the main storyline, … Continue reading

Anime: Prince of tennis: The National Tournament

I was inspired recently to finish up a particular Prince of Tennis fanfiction that has been sitting in my computer and rewritten 3 times. It’s currently my goal to finish the fic as I finish my last semester of studies here at the ANU. Anyway, what better way to do research and get in touch with … Continue reading

Anime: Prince of Tennis: Pairpuri

This is the first picture drama I’ve watched and I must say it’s an interesting experience. Little to no animation, but the art was well drawn and the I paid a lot of attention to the voices, which were very good. I guess all the voice actors have a lot of experience considering how much anime, … Continue reading


I wonder if it is possible to be the best at just one thing. I don’t need to be good at everything, but to be recognized for one thing, regardless of how simple would be nice. And no, best daughter or best sister doesn’t count, simply because I am the only one. There’s so many … Continue reading

Anime: Bungaku Shoujo

Anime movies. Sometimes they are amazing, sometimes they’re just mediocre. Bungaku Shoujo unfortunately falls in the latter category. It’s main failing? It tries too hard to squeeze too much content into an hour and a half. I’m sure the novels for Bungaku Shoujo are amazing. Reading all the spoilers at MAL for the character just seems to … Continue reading
