In truth, I only started reading both of her works a week ago, where I stumbled upon the ending of Yamada-kun & The Seven Witches (I’ll call it Yamada for short) in a manga magazine. While I am kinda interested in Yamada at that time, manga is not a priority for me and gender bender is not really my thing. So that ending triggered me to read the story, and then her other story, and then viola, new blog post for a long time.

I’m Bored: Another 2 Short Manga About Dancing

[Left: Coda by Ichimura Hitoshi. Right: Tetsugaku Letra by Sahara Mizu]

This month I have a huge craving of manga, one that I feel like I wanted to devour them into my memories with their art & knowledge, even though my review should never be seen professionally.

Although specifically, I’m focused on manga about dancing & sports in general (recently, I have just finished all the chapters of King Golf which available online in English, really recommend it for a really great protagonist) and today I will be reviewing the 2 dance mangas that has been finished, Coda and Tetsugaku Letra, even though this review is according to my memory of 2 months before.

[Plus, this is a really sad excuse as I keep repeating some chapters of  Welcome To The Ballroom]

[Left: Welcome to the Ballroom by Tomo Takeuchi. Right: Straighten Up! Welcome to Shika High’s Competitive Dance Club by Yokota Takuma]

How the post came by during a long break: Browse at Manga Here, interested at the cover page of the Welcome to the Ballroom, spend my entire morning reading the chapters (strangely except for the first chapter) published, then looked at TvTropes for that page, see a manga with a similar premise called Straighten Up! Welcome to Shika High’s Competitive Dance Club, spend my entire afternoon reading the chapters (which are longer) published. And now we are here.

[Note: This is never a professional review]

I’m Bored: Commenting The US Presidential Election With Lily Allen’s Songs

Cause why not, this election is a gold mine for people who is willing to make fun of it.

Lily Allen is a British pop singer that has some fame in around 2009, before Adele eventually churn out consistently memorable songs even when she’s taking care of a baby with her own voice while Lily decided to take a rest so she could be taking care for her baby, till the point that her brother, Alfie, who she mocked in her song, Alfie, is more famous than her than to Game of Thrones, a show that I am not interested in.

While our viewpoints are different, I don’t care about it because both of us are unable to vote for the next US President, the election is over & people have to deal with it, and I will always remember some of her songs by heart, that is how strong some of her songs are before Sheezus muck everything up..

Thus, to remember her (for some reason), I decided to use her songs to match some feelings for this US Election, again. (So please don’t take this seriously)

I’m Bored: The Apprentice US Season 1, Episode 1

Coming back for a while with a rewind, why not?

Here’s the summary of Donald Trump

Donald Trump: Well I’m already a successful businessman, why don’t I become an author. (Later) Now every bookworms know about me, why don’t I join Oprah. (Later) Now everybody who owns a tv knows about me, why don’t I create my own tv show? (Later) Now my show has become a reality tv icon (in the UK at least), but I want something more, something bigger than sending celebrities to do meager jobs.

‘CLAP’

I know, with all these life experiences, why don’t I try to Make America Great Again, and become the president of the United States?

And just like that, despite spending half the amount of his rival, Hillary Clinton & the DNC, despite basically having no experience as a politician, and despite California & their 55 Democrat Electoral Votes…

He somehow made it happen, and this is our reality.

So to celebrate, here is the series where everybody know about him the most, The Apprentice, where the only season that this blogger watches fully is the Martha Stewart season (& you know how well that works out)

I’m Bored: Hilarious In Hindsight, AVbyte, Presidential Cookie Battle

This is a short post and a short moment sharing that I found amusing, where I am able to start editing in TvTropes again (which is some days ago).

To celebrate, let’s talk about a trope called Hilarious in Hindsight, the definition of this page:

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HilariousInHindsight

It’s when a later event, such as a current event or something that happened in the series, contrives to make something funnier than it originally was. This is what your literature teacher would call “Life imitating Art”.

– TvTropes page.

Well I didn’t know about this would be amusing enough for you, but here’s an amusing example, from AVbyte.
