  • Making Cliche Work: An In-Depth Analysis of Your Lie In April (pt. 1)

    Disclaimer: The following post contains spoilers for Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso

    There is something about Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (Your Lie In April) that is extremely gripping… Something that not quite many people can pinpoint when asked: “What’s so great about this anime?” The story in its entirety is pretty cliche. At best, it is a plot line that has been beaten to death with a few minor tweaks.

    Boy meets girl, girl inspires boy to do something, girl has illness, boy falls to depression, girl passes away but boy is A-OK. This isn’t a story we haven’t seen, in fact it is quite predictable. However, there must be something about Shigatsu that made it into a what it is today, a highly rated anime.

  • Game Plan 2016: Day 2

    This year, we had the honour of attending Game Plan 2016 to cover the event. Just like last year, it’s held with a focus on gamers and the spirit of competition between these hardcore players, to let them fight and struggle their way to bragging rights and cold hard cash.

    This time around, Game Plan 2016 was held at Tunku Abdul Rahman University College instead of KDU University College Ultropolis Glenmarie. While the new venue was significantly smaller than the one they used last year, it still served its purpose and certainly helped make the event feel much more hyped!

    The problem with last years venue was it was a little too big, and it felt a little lonely in some of the places. However, with the smaller venue this year, it felt a little more crowded and more energetic. Anyway, enough mumbo jumbo about last year’s Game Plan, let’s talk more about this year’s Game Plan!

  • Introduction to Touhou Music: Writer’s Pick

    Hi readers, previously I wrote a brief introduction to Touhou Music. This time I will be sharing with you my personal favourite Touhou music circles.

    First off, I would have you know that I love electro music, especially the techno and trance genre. Therefore, you will find this bias list containing mostly circles of those genres. These circles are not in any way ranked. I appreciate these circles equally, except for the first one probably being my favourite of them all.

  • Interview with Yau and Kuratsu

    As we enter the second week of November, let us recall the events that took place in October! One of the events that we have attended is MGACE! During this event, we had the opportunity to interview two of its guests. All the way from busy Hong Kong, we have YAU and her partner Kuratsu!

    Note: The coolest part of the experience is that Kuratsu acted as a translator for Yau! And a pretty good one too! There may be some parts of the interview that is combined because it was written based on Kuratsu’s translations and she herself also answered these questions.
