Fan Art Friday

Welcome to Fan Art Fridays! Each Friday I will sketch fan art of an anime/manga character. Sometimes it will be sketches of scenes from anime/manga and some will be original fan art. Original fan art will have the black and white version that’s publicaly posted and a colored version available to MyPatreon members! For the first piece, I sketched chibi Gintama! This isn’t an original, I sketched it freehand from an image I found.  If you like my work be sure to check out our art gallery!

Kado: The Right Answer Ep 7 Review

Just when I was getting worried that this anime may not have good material to continue the story with, I get proven wrong. Inviting a media team into Kado wasn’t exactly that much of a surprise. I’ve seen enough science fiction where media always gets caught up in a close encounter some how. Well, I didn’t expect them to be offered an opportunity to alter their brains. That’s kinda scary thought if you ask me. I’m not sure if I’d be able to do something like that willingly. I fear I would have a panic attack. LOL

The device that gets presented to these men is suppose to alter the brains so that humans dont need sleep. I’m not sure how I feel about that either. I kind of like sleep. Haha Gonnou, Emi, and Utamaru get quite the experience. They get the chance to meet Yaha-kui zaShunina (god that’s a mouthful!). Gonnou didn’t hesitate to take up the offer and take the small risk. It was so trippy! All they did was stare at it. Just looking at it altered their brains. It actually startled me because I wasn’t expecting this scenario at all. Gonnou kept himself pretty well together dealing with that. I’m pretty sure I’d freak out. LOL Now they don’t need sleep anymore, I guess? The side effect of nausea didn’t look pleasant. -_-

Yaha-ku zaShunina’s explanation¬†of the isotropic was interesting to wrap my head around. I love this idea of there’s different parts of us across different dimensions and once you’re aware of them, you don’t need sleep since you can have one of them sleep while the others stay awake. Wow. This anime really draws you in and makes you interested in learning more from Yah-kui zaShunina. It’s facsinating!

 

I enjoyed watching their experience at the festival with Yah-ku zaShunia. He’s definitely seem to humanize a bit more since reading books. I laughed when Shindo gave him a kubuki mask to wear and his response was “I’ll allow it”. LOL Tsukai looked cute in her kimono, despite her protests of how ridiclous she thought she looked. I loved her expression when Shindo told her she looked good. Cameron teased me when she made a pouty face because I apparently do something similar. Haha.

 

I’m not sure why Tsukai wants to send zaShunina back to the isotropic. What is her motivation? Now that anime is taking a turn. zaShunina hasn’t done anything wrong or threatened anymore so I’m not sure why she wants to do this. We’ll hopefully get to find out in the next episode! I’m very pleased with this anime. It’s very engaging. The animation is beautiful and the music is amazing. I hope we get a lot of episodes! Usually anime of this nature only gets about 13 but I’m crossing my fingers for 20 or more episodes.

My Hero Academia Ep 25 Review

I was so excited for this episode and it totally delivered. I LOVE Bakugo and Todoroki. This fight was pretty cool but it wasn’t mind blowing like the fight with Deku. Not that it didn’t entertain of course!

I love how Bakugo demands his opponents be at their full power. He’s more insecure than he appears and if someone doesn’t give him their all in a fight, he feels insulted. He feels like he’s being looked down on. I’m curious where all that anger comes from. I’m guessing something happened to be that insecure. That’s not something that randomly happens. Well, in reality anyway, this is a fictional story lol. 

The fight didn’t drag out too long. I’ve been reading the manga so I already knew how it was going to end. Todoroki is still struggling with his own demons so he wasn’t able to give his all this match. I couldn’t stop laughing over how pissed Bakugo was. He nearly got emotional though, that was interesting to see. 

Things are changing for Ida now that his brother was taken down by a villain. It really showed how much super hero families put so much pressure on each other. At least with Ida’s family it wasn’t to the degree of Todoroki’s. 

The awards ceremony was a riot. Seeing Bakugo chained up with a muzzle while he squirms and growls was priceless. I couldn’t stop laughing. The gold medal hanging out of his mouth was a nice touch. Oh, how I adore that kid. 

I didn’t think we’d see so much one one episode but i was impressed with how well it was done. The pacing didn’t feel rushed despite how much was revealed in this episode. I didn’t expect for them to do Shouto going to visit his mom. My heart melted when he said the first thing he wants to do is save his mom! Gah! My heart!

This episode was a blast. I got a kick out of Bakugo’s angry teeth brushing. I couldn’t stop laughing! Did you watch this episode? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments!

Food Blog: Shiro Miso Soup and Curry w/ Rice

Welcome to our first food blog! Entertainment isn’t all we cover! Now that we’re starting them, they will always be posted on Saturdays, but not every Saturday. Just whenever we try something new or have a recipe to share, it will be posted on a Saturday!

 

Today I tried Shiro Miso Soup and Curry with Rice. I’m going to start with the curry and rice first.

 

curry (3)

 

Golden Curry is the brand I used. Before, we had tried the “medium” and this time we went up to medium hot. Cameron loves spicy things and has a very high tolerance. I want to catch up with him so this is one way to do it. We purchased pork slices and boiled potatoes to put in the curry. We also added 4 chocolate kisses for flavor. Never knew chocolate could make a “dinner” taste so fantastic but damn, does it do the job. We had stick rice with the curry and I was in heaven. It wasn’t too spicy honestly. I felt a heat in my mouth but it was very pleasant. I actually wished it was hotter. LOL When I was growing up, I hated rice but I cleared my plate with that curry. I think I’ve found a new comfort food!

 

foodmiso (2)

 

This was the Shiro Miso Soup. It was an instant soup where you just add boiling water. I was excited to try it since the brand was Japanese. I’ve been wanting to try Miso soup for awhile now since I’ve seen them so much on youtube food blogs. It comes out in a powdery form as shown above with dehydrated pieces of seaweed and fish. The smell reminded me of cooked broccoli but not in a bad way (i HATE cooked broccoli lol). It also smelled fishy which was to be expected.

 

misohot (2)

 

The soup transformed once I added the boiling water. Suddenly there was little fish cakes floating everywhere three times the size they were as well as good size seaweed pieces. Using chopsticks I stirred it thoroughly then took the plunge and drank directly from the bowl. At first it reminded me of clam chowder but extremely watered down. I think that’s due to the fishy taste. I definitely enjoyed the soup itself. The little fish cakes tasted like water potatoes honestly. The seaweed pieces were a disappointment though, they definitely tasted like cooked broccoli. Thankfully it wasn’t to the degree that made me gag, it was just slightly unpleasant but not inedible. I can tell it’s a cheap soup but for a cheap japanese soup in america, it wasn’t half bad. Not my first choice but if there’s nothing else to eat in the house, I wouldn’t be opposed to eating it. That sounds worse than it actually is intended. Haha. It’s just not something that makes me want to come back to it repeatedly but it doesn’t make me not want to eat it at all either.

 

Side note, I was quite proud of myself when I was able to translate the characters on the miso soup package that said “miso” LOL I recognized them from my lessons and I got so excited. Hehe.

 

That’s it for our first food blog! Have you tried these products? What did you think of them and do you prepare it differently or add something to it? Let us know in the comments!

Boruto Ep 10 Review

I have mixed feelings on this one. I honestly can’t think of a whole lot to say on this episode. The scenario of them taking on a job that lets them wonder around to investigate seems a bit cheesy. Not like this is the first time we’ve seen this scenario in an anime or cartoon. The failed mail deliveries I could see coming a mile away. Of course that wasn’t going to go well for them.

 

This episode just sort of fell flat for me. It seemed more filler than anything. I can barely remember all the details that happened except for the failed mail delivers why they try to investigate “the ghost”. I wish I had more to say on this episode, but I just don’t. The past couple episodes I’ve been feeling like Boruto hasn’t been pulling at me like it has in the past. I’m starting to forget when it airs and forgetting to watch it (hence the late review). Hopefully the next episode will give me more to talk about.

Kado: The Right answer Ep 6 Review

This anime continues to impress. I can’t get over how beautiful the opening theme song is. It really sets the mood for what kind of anime you’re watching. Now that Zashuina has shown the world how to create their own wam, the drama between the rest of the countries was eliminated. I’m glad that drama didn’t last long. Didn’t want to see different countries fighting over something that could help evolve mankind!

 

Most of the episode was the movement of Kado. They made something that would be tedious and boring into something beautiful to witness. You could really see just how large Kado was compared to everything on the planet surface. I can’t imagine something like that happening in reality. This anime makes it seem so real even though it is animated. Cameron and I are watching the dubs and so far, it’s just fine. It wasn’t a huge drastic difference between the English and Japanese voices.

 

Now that Kado has been moved to a more rual area, we find out that Shindo hasn’t been sleeping the entire time. An entire month without sleep?! So, apparently Shindo is an evolved version of the human race now. I wonder if this is going to happen more on a global scale now? I have no idea where this anime is going. You really can’t get a sense of what will happen next which is why I keep coming back every episode!
