Random thoughts June 2018

I haven’t gotten any motivation to write any blogposts or reviews recently so I’ll just write something to just keep it somewhat alive. Currently the VPS this website is hosted on is mostly relegated to run discord bots and scripts that I have written for fun.

Photokatsu wise, I have achieved certain milestones and have pretty much stopped playing currently, waiting for its death. Thoroughly bad luck on my last few rolls didn’t really raise my motivation. No PRs on rate ups in 4×11 rolls. I enjoyed the game very much throughout almost 2 years of playing. It’s more part of my life for the past two years as I have never fail logging in since I have started playing. I have also done FC on most of the songs which I didn’t actually anticipated it would happen due to me being really crap in rhythm games. I have improved so much in this game but still my weakness still prevents me from finishing a remaining few of them but I am still happy with my accomplishments. I feel slightly empty to see it gone soon, but at the same time, it will actually release a burden from myself to try other new stuff or just rest more.

I have reached SSS Ichigo sometime in March 2018, boy this is really tiring, but it’s always worth it for my forever no.1 Aikatsu idol Ichigo.

Milestone reached: Getting into top 100 for Ichigo fanclub. 

I am still watching Aikatsu Friends/Prichan/Hugtto Precure but I am afraid I won’t be writing any reviews due to me being lazy. I still like the direction of Aikatsu Friends is going but it’s a bit too early to proclaim whether it would be great or not. I feel that it is better than what I feel for Aikatsu Stars for now.

I can’t really comment much on Prichan, because I still don’t see where the plot is going yet. There are always boring episodes mixed with interesting episodes for now.


Lastly, I would like to comment on a certain person who has been cloning and plagiarizing my posts. Since I am not posting much anymore, there is nothing much to be copied but I am still very pissed off for what you have done. There is nothing much we can do to stop you since you have been copying stuff from almost everywhere, but know it you will be judged according to your deeds

Aikatsu Friends 1-5 Review

I have been too lazy to write a per episode review for Aikatsu Friends so I have decided to just write about what I feel every few episodes.

Coming from my disappointment of handling of ending of Aikatsu Stars, I have come in with quite low expectations but I have been pleasantly surprised by how Aikatsu Friends is doing so far. For me, it has been going strong for the first five episodes and I still haven’t perceive an episode where it is obviously worse than the other. It makes me hyped for every next episode.

I’ll reserve my judgement for characters for now, since I don’t really start loving characters until like halfway of first season? However, so far the characters introduced are pretty fresh with memorable traits. Aine is pretty fun for trying to just make friends with everyone she has just met. Mio is cool but has the unexpected side of being infatuated with Aine’s penguin Penne. I can also feel the passion of Maika. Penne the penguin was also an unexpected gem for being so smug. For now, Love Me Tear still seems to be a distant top idol but that’ll change as we know more about their quirks.

For the 3DCG, it was such a great improvement from what we had in Stars. I used to just nitpick a lot for Stars 3DCG, but the 3D models, the movements, the camerawork had made such obvious leap of quality. There is also the ED fully animated in 3DCG and I can get used to that.

I will still be writing my feelings on Aikatsu Friends after few more episodes, but for now I’ll just enjoy every new episode coming up.
