COMIKET 98 is cancelled.

Admittedly for the better.

Comiket committee official announcement on FB.

It's in May and we're already in April and the virus still out of control.

Economy wise also, the entire world economy is screwed. The oil price is at the lowest but people don't buy it anyway because of the restriction movement / lock down. Many people get laid off or had to be force to take non-paid leave because of this. So it's not the best of time to spend on non necessity. The shipment of cargo also limited due to cut of man power.

Bleach 20th Anniversary

Kubo BLEACH 20th anni message

Who knows it has been that long and Kubo still got the flex. Good for him.

There will be two Kubo animes coming soon. Bleach anime will resume till the end of the manga and his new series which isn't out yet but has came out as one shot in 2018 Burn the Witch.

I talk shit about him sometimes but there no denying that I love his art. Wish his artbook JET wasn't so goddamn expensive. However I also know that he isn't good at sustaining a plot (hence the shit talk).

Anyway, Burn the Witch is a BLEACH spin off in UK. From the oneshot it has more convulated system than shinigami in JP so he can expand it anyway he wants. The leads are two school girls one with big tits and one is flat chest. You probably have read the one shot as scanlation teams has released it in 2018 but today Viz also released their own version. So take your pick to read.

Kengan Asura Part 2

I haven't been watching netflix for a while (~a month).

Yesterday when I click on netflix I was welcome by Kengan Asura part 2 Trailer.

I actually finished reading the manga not too long ago. But there's a prequel Kengen Omega which still ongoing.
I only read the first vol of Kengan Omega I'll wait until more available before continuing reading em because me and cliff hanger doesn't go well together.

Joker 2019

Watched Joker film, managed to get the slot I wanted despite buying ticket 5 min after the movie screening started (but the commercial padding saved me)


The Joker suit is really nice, the color scheme works wonderfully.

Anyway, I had high hope for this cuz the trailer looks good and the movie honestly good but I don't like it.

Supernatural Season 15!

Tomorrow 10/10/2019 will be the start of Supernatural season 15 which is the last season of the series.


Season 15 poster

The main cast Jensen, Jared and Misha has made a video back then (yeah, I follow them on facebook) announcing to the fans that season 15 is going to be the last season and it was by their own choice. They wanted  the series to finish off strong not sizzle away.

I spend better part of my life with this series, the only TV series that I stick around with and that is saying something considering I'm not into series much less long running series. I have very very mixed feeling about the whole thing, I wanted it to end because admittedly the story kinda going everwhere now but at the same time I just cannot let go of the Winchester brothers.

In one article I read about Supernatural the long lasting of this show is made possible by the excellent casting and I am absolutely agree. I love the chemistry between Jared and Jensen and they are the reason I stick around because even when the plot is not to my liking I love their interaction and they can truly pass as real brothers (although they don't look alike). I remember telling myself back in the day if one of them gone (leave the show for whatever reason) I'm not gonna continue watching it anymore and guessed what both of them stick around and so do I. Also, Jensen and Jared was given the honour to decide to keep the show going basically Supernatural has come to a point where it has strong enough base that if they want to keep on going they can.


Season 1 Winchester bros, so young.

Another thing about the show I like it it playfullness, I mean have you watched the Scooby Doo episode? What about the Western episode or the breaking meta episode or the thousand time Dean died. In the later seasons the past 5 or 6 I have enjoyed the one off non-core-plot heavy episode. Like I said the plot has been everywhere but these one off episode really made my day. It has been truly enjoyable ride despite the ups and down. The favourite season would still be the ones during Kripke as showrunner.

From various sources it seems like they preparring a lot for this final season including the come back of the lost long half Winchester bro whom had fallen off the map in Supernatural world since his death. The season also fairly short with only 20 episode just like the previous (the shortest season was during the writer strike back in 2008) when usually it 22 to 23 episodes. I don't think there will be any others series for me like Supernatural in my life time anymore.


Another main character in Supernatural Baby. Wonderful muscle car.

I thank my sister who introduced me to Supernatural, I was not into supernatural story (ghost stuff) still don't now but Supernatural is the exception. I also kinda love and hate her for this, look what she made me become, a sappy Supernatural fan. I followed this series since the first season that was 14 years ago and known only one other person in RL that like it as much as I do and managed to convert one other person into a fan. Supernatural has fantastic fan community I enjoy all the meme and fan stuff/share especially videos of Supernatural panels in cons (there won't be Supernatural panel at SDCC anymore next year). The cast and staff made the show great and the fan made it welcoming. I'm happy I was apart of the ride.

I think I'm going to cry emotinal tears everytime I listen to Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas. (Gosh, I'm gonna miss them so much.)



p/s: Complete DVD boxset I'm ready! Should I go for Bluray though but that gonna be pricey. Dunno we'll see when it's out.

Fighting over stocks

J.Garden has come and gone. Now and few days to come will be the battle of stock.

I have my eyes on two original djs by Ichikawa kei and rocky. I have interest on some others too but these two are my main priorites.

Ichikawa sensei is self-aware, she knows her work is in demand has been catering and responding very well to fans demand for her book. I'm thankful for that and she printed a lot of supply for her book and has no problem now putting in reservation or just buy without reservation. Sometime ago she was not in tune yet, I missed one of her dj for the Blue Sky series and it was never back reprinted. There are way too many events in Japan and I don't always check twitter the next thing I know she published book #4 and I was like what happen to #3.

Rocky sensei however not so much, getting a hand on her work is excrutiatingly difficult. Back then she used Alice book (That was how I introduced to her stuff) and I set reminder of any new work listed so it was bearable. I even accidently bought 2 of the same book on two different orders because something wrong with the notification system that one time. I was acting on impulse because I know if I missed the reservation the book will not be restock. She is no longer using Alice book and I haven't been able to get any of her dj since... Sometimes I was just late a couple of hours of her tweet the reservation open and it already out of stock and never be back in stock.

These are just two example there are many others artists too and Comiket especially is war period to place in reservation/order.

Wish me luck on placing my orders!

Invader Zim Enter the Florpus

I love Invader Zim, watched it on TV way back when.

When I saw a new movie of it came out I'm absolutely estatic.



The whole setting of it is dirty and I usually don't like gross cartoon but Invader Zim is special case for me for reason I don't even know myself.

Totally recomended, watch it!

'Angel' Cast 20 Year Reunion




Angel was one of TV series that I follow in my youth, just like now I'm not really into TV series but as family with one TV at the time we watch what ever majority want to watch and I got hooked nonetheless. Unfortunately I don't remember much about it but had a really fond memory of it. So yeah at the end of the interview Cordelia said "we should do movie" and if they do do a movie and these people come back to reprise their roles I'm totally in.

For those who interested Angel new comic book was out in April and the second issue was out last week.

Steam sale!

I've been eyeing this horror survival game for sometimes and just waiting for it to be on sale and my wait finally over. It's Outlast and I'm buying the bundle pack.

Half Life games also on sale, that sure brought me back to the old times. I never own the game nor did I play it when it came out, I played my friend's copy. Probably gonna get myself that one too the first game. Also this game what's made me so fascinated towards crowbar, it's so useful =D.
