A Brisk Week

For all the activities that have happened in the past days, I’m still left stressed out because of the amount of activities that we had. Even though tomorrow’s going to be weekend, I’m wondering why I’m still stressed out. Though, I can say that I’m starting to get relaxed as another busy week as ended, but there’s always that one or more tasks that is due for next week.

I know that I can start it this weekend, but I’m having trouble in HOW and WHEN I should start doing it. Which homework should I do first, this one, or this one? What time should I start doing it; in the morning, or at noon, or at night? There’s always these questions boggling my mind, as a result, it slows down my process of doing the work and usually ends up in me doing it later.

Those are the same questions that have been in my mind for the past weeks or so. I always overthink a lot, and to me, it’s not a good thing as I tend to get lazy and it’s getting me nowhere. Though, I’ll say that relaxation is a good thing, but do not overdo it as it would make you lazier and lazier each time you refuse to do your work.

Escaping Procrastination: Impossibru

For me to procrastinate over something is a common thing for me. If there’s a task that needs to be done immediately, I would most likely start to laze around and do it later before I go to sleep. That’s the reason why I stay up late most of the time. I usually wait till the stress calms down before I start doing my work.

Now, for this time, I think my procrastination over things are getting out of hand. Even with a simple task, I still delay it and I start to goof around, maybe play some games or just lie in bed and think about all sorts of randomness.

What I hate is I even procrastinate when I would watch anime. Sometimes I want to watch the series that I stopped watching for like 3 months ago (It’s Soul Eater and I’m stuck on Ep 36), but then I would start to get lazy and go to sleep instead.  I think I’m getting lazier and lazier as the years pass by. I would want this laziness to lessen, if possible; I wouldn’t want it to vanish completely either, because if I would be too much hardworking, most likely that would happen is the stress would build up and it’s way even worse than procrastination.

Tokyo Ghoul Gets a Live-Action Film Adaptation

The wrap-around jacket band on the seventh volume of Sui Ishida‘sTokyo Ghoul:re manga announced on Thursday that Ishida’s original Tokyo Ghoul manga will get a live-action film.

Ishida serialized Tokyo Ghoul in Shueisha‘s Weekly Young Jump from 2011 to 2014, and is now serializing Tokyo Ghoul:reTokyo Ghoulinspired two anime series, several OVAs, PlayStation Vita and smartphone games, and a stage play.

I have mixed feeling about Tokyo Ghoul having a live action movie adaptation. Normally, live action films tend to be not that really good in general. Though, there are some live action films that I’ve watched that really resembled the anime or manga and it was really good; there are also live action films that have different stories and is completely original from the manga or anime.

One example of a good live action film adaptation that I’ve watched is AnoHana. For me, I personally think that the live action film adaptation of AnoHana captured the same emotions like in the anime. That’s what made it good and made it really emotional to watch. A live action movie adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul on the other hand is rather really hard to think if it’s going to be good. One problem is the theme of the movie. Of course the story involves ghouls, a human-like creature that has blood tentacles (kagune) coming out of its back, so it would need a lot of good effects and good CGI for it to please the viewers.

Most of the people think that how the Japanese use CGIs is not that really good. Well, the TG live action movie is totally going to have CGI in it. So, I have doubts that if it’s going to be a good movie or it would end up being a crappy one instead.

A Random Game Idea

So, I and my classmate were talking about random topics at school in our free time. We suddenly got to the topic of talking about games. First, we thought of what Durarara!! would look like if it would be made into a game. My friend suggested that it would have a similar gameplay like in Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm, except it would have many characters fighting each other. It is to bring the experience of a gang war fight. So, it’s basically a fighting game, but here’s the catch, there would be separate stories for every character of the game, but it would connect to the stories of the other characters near the ending. Remember that Durarara!! has many characters. A lot of scenes have happened in the anime in just one episode. Basically, first you must finish a character’s arc, but you won’t be able to see the ending but instead proceed to another character arc. In short, you will play all the major characters in Durarara!! and after you finish the last character, the ending would be revealed and the stories of all the characters would be connected to each other.

Then I came up of an idea where you play a game and also at the same time watch something like an anime episode. So, for example: there would be a normal anime time length episode (around 20 minutes) then after the episode it will proceed to the game where your choices influence the flow of the story and the episodes. The idea is kind of similar to a visual novel, except it would have episodes and the gameplay would be pretty much a third person point of view. It would also affect the story on how you would play the game. For example: you chose to kill many civilians instead of sparing them, that would change the story and also the episodes of the game. So, it’s like playing a game and also at the same time, watching something like a series.

No Game No Life Movie – Riku and Shuvi

This post may contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.


Shuvi Ngnl_v6_illust_(7)

Shuvi was the first Ex-machina to be introduced in Tet‘s story which he was telling Izuna. In the story she seeks to understand the human [heart] and was found by Riku.

Appearance

She looks like a young human but with several differences, being two tails coming out from her back and other machine like features protruding from around her body. She bears many similarities with Shiro. During her time with humans other than Riku, she wore a robe to cover the mechanical parts on her body, including the piece on her head. However, the tail was uncoverable (as it was her power source) Riku decided to go calling it equipment.

Personality

Her behavior is similar to that of a stereotypical artificial intelligence. She can absorb and process data and intelligence very quickly and act in the appropriate manner, a unique characteristic of her race. However, she seems to have difficulty in comprehending emotions and desires, otherwise characterized by her as the [heart]. Over time spent with Riku, she seems to have started to develop her own [heart]. Her expressions and feelings became more vivid over time.

After setting her personality to mimic that of a “shy Imanity survivor” and spending a year around Riku’s colony, she is unable to reset her personality back to the default monotonous mannerisms of the Ex-machina, stating that she is “stuck” in that mode.


Riku Ngnl_v6_illust_(6)

Riku was an 18 years old Imanity who lived during the Great War on Disboard. He was one of the main protagonists in Tet‘s story.

He encountered Shuvi while going on an expedition and brought her to his colony after having lost in a game against her (albeit willingly, as he judged that winning was impossible, so instead he changed the bets to his favor).

Appearance

He bears many similarities with Sora, being his hairstyle, slender body, black eyes and his face.

Personality

Ever since his home was destroyed and he took over as leader of his colony, he’s had a somewhat split personality. When the figurative lock on his [heart] is locked, he appears emotionless, cold, and calculating. When his heart is unlocked, the emotions he bottled up are released (often violently). His endeavors with Shuvi has since lessened his split personality and he appears to be more open around her.

So, the movie will actually star these characters, Riku and Shuvi. Though, they may seem to look a lot like Sora and Shiro, they are actually diferrent characters from Sora and Shiro.

The movie will adapt volume 6 titled It Seems the Gamer Couple Challenged the World, it is a prequel story that covers the Great War between the Gods. The story is a little darker and me reading some articles and wikias, I got myself spoiled.

I don’t actually know these characters and I have no idea of their background story. But, I’m kind of liking these characters just by looking through their appearances. They resemble Sora and Shiro by appearance and Riku and Shivu are actually couples. So far, I’m looking forward for the movie and I’m waiting to see how these new characters are. But, I’m guessing that I’m going to love the new characters even though I don’t know much of their details.

 

 

 

No Game No Life Gets an Anime Movie Adaptation

Production on an anime film editon of Yuu Kamiya‘s No Game, No Life light novel series has been green-lit. The staff made the announcement during the streamed MF Bunko J Summer School Festival 2016 event on Sunday, and Kamiya drew the following piece of art to celebrate the news:

img-movie

The story of No Game, No Life centers around Sora and Shiro, a brother and sister whose reputations as brilliant NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training)hikikomori (shut-in) gamers have spawned urban legends all over the Internet. These two gamers even consider the real world as just another “crappy game.” One day, they are summoned by a boy named “God” to an alternate world. There, God has prohibited war and declared this to be a world where “everything is decided by games” — even national borders. Humanity has been driven back into one remaining city by the other races. Will Sora and Shiro, the good-for-nothing brother and sister, become the “Saviors of Humanity” on this alternate world? “Well, let’s start playing.”

Kamiya launched the light novel series in 2012 with his own art after illustrating another light novel series that spawned an anime, A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives(Itsuka Tenma no Kuro-Usagi). Media Factory will publish the ninth volume in August. Yen Press is publishing the light novel series in North America, while Seven Seas Entertainment is publishing Mashiro Hiiragi‘s manga adaptation.

The light novel series already inspired a television anime series that premiered in April 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the television anime as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released it on home video in North America.

Excited_Jibril

I’m literally happy with all the upcoming anime movies that are going to be released. This one is far by the most I’m waiting for and the most I am hyped for. Sadly, the anime doesn’t have a second season yet. I have read in some articles that the author of the light novel of No Game No Life got a copyright issue. I guess that’s the reason why the series hasn’t been able to produce another season or sequel. Despite that, they managed to give news about an upcoming movie in which the story will take place before the anime (I’ve read it in GoBoiano which I will write the details on the next blog. Seems like the characters for the movie are not Sora and Shiro and that’s ok for me. Which means new characters will be introduced to the story. Well, at least it’s better than nothing.

Kyoto Animation really played with our hearts because a lot of fans of the anime ships Kumiko and Reina (I also ship them to be honest lol).

SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was glad when I found out that the anime was getting a sequel or a  second season. The ending for the first season was already satisfying for me, but I believe that there’s always a room for another series. I don’t really much music-themed anime often, but I gave this one a try and I somehow liked it. I still prefer K-On! for the comedy, but if it’s for the animation and drama feels, I’ll most likely pick Hibike! Euphonium.

Yeah, I can’t wait to see another work of Kyoto Animation and their amazing animation and well detailed art, especially those sparkly eyes. Yeah I know I’ve mentioned KyoAni’s style of the eyes a lot, it’s because in my opinion, I think the best animation for the eyes goes to KyoAni in terms of moe. Gotta love those sparkly, colourful, and bright eyes.
