Anime Review: Mai-Otome & Mai-Otome Zwei (2005)

A while ago, I decided to watch Mai-Otome again. I know this is a very old anime (it's produced 10 years ago, phew how fast time flies, dosn't it??) but I haven't watch it properly when I was in senior high school. I thought I would only waste my time by watching old anime rather than new anime, but I think it's worth it :) I learn so much lessons through this anime.

(Synonym: 舞-乙HiME / My-Otome / My-Z-Hime)

Mai-Otome is an anime series created by Sunrise. Directed by Masakazu Obara and written by Hiroyuki Yoshino, it is a spinoff of My-HiME anime series and as such My-Otome takes place in a new setting with new main characters.

The series originally premiered on TV Tokyo from October 6, 2005 to March 30, 2006. An OVA sequel to the series, My-Otome Zwei, has been made and released in Japan, and a prequel, My-Otome 0~S.ifr~, has been completed. The series was licensed for North American distribution by Bandai Entertainment. Zwei leaves the story open for future sequels, and Sifr for future prequels. At Otakon 2013, Funimation Entertainment had announced that they have rescued all of the My-Hime Project anime and will be re-released in 2015.

[Movie Review] Avengers: The Age of Ultron (2015)

Hi, hi! Finally I managed time to watch the sequel of AVENGERS movie :D We can say this movie is one of the most-anticipated movies in 2015, but does its actual movie really meets our expectation?


In the Eastern European country of Sokovia, the Avengers – Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Thor, Bruce Banner, Natasha Romanoff, and Clint Barton – raid a Hydra outpost led by Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, who has been experimenting on humans using the scepter previously wielded by Loki. They encounter two of Strucker's experiments – twins Pietro, who has superhuman speed, and Wanda Maximoff, who can manipulate minds and project energy – and apprehend Strucker, while Stark retrieves Loki's scepter.

Webtoon's ORANGE MARMALADE will be aired as TV Drama Series on KBS

OMG, I'm excited to share this to you guys!!
Last night, I was unintentionally reading Webtoon on my LINE Webtoon app and I read ORANGE MARMALADE as it stated as current best Webtoon with 9.70 Rating. I just read till chapter 14 and oh my.. I'm really fascinated with its story. I must say vampire story isn't such a hot trend right know but I love how the author of Orange Marmalade tell the story simply and meaningful.

And this morning, I received a news that KBS' Orange Marmalade first episode would be aired by tonight and CNBlue's Lee Jong Hyun will play as well. Wow, TV DRAMA? BY KBS? I think it's such a coincidence ^.^ I'm surely gonna look forward this drama :D :D Hopefully this drama will be as interesting as its Webtoon series!

Set in a fantasy world where humans and vampires coexist, the latter have evolved and no longer rely on human blood as food. Still, they are feared and discriminated against by society, causing many of them to hide their true nature and live as "normal" citizens, or else become outcasts.

Baek Ma-ri (AOA Kim Seolhyun) is a socially withdrawn teenage girl hiding her vampire identity. Driven away from several neighborhoods, she is eager to settle down in her new city and live quietly. But things change when she accidentally bites the neck of Jung Jae-min (Yeo Jin-Goo) the most popular boy at her high school.

Wisata Kuliner: Warung Sate Kelinci - Batu [review]

Masih tentang seputar wisata kuliner di Malang dan Batu, pagi-pagi jam 10 rombongan kami pergi cari sarapan (sarapan ronde ke-2, aslinya sih tadi pagi udah ngemil Popmie :p hahaha), dan pilihan kami jatuh pada Sate Kelinci!

Btw, udara di Batu ngga seperti dulu, kalau dulu pagi-pagi gitu dingin.. Tapi sekarang hawanya cuma dingin pas malem aja :s kalo sekarang pagi dan siang sih biasa aja udaranya.. 

Rumah makan nya lumayan nyaman, ada tempat lesehan juga di dalamnya :D ada lalat sih, tapi ngga begitu banyak..

Wisata Kuliner: Susu KUD BATU

Halo semuaaa... beberapa hari lalu pada waktu long weekend aku dan teman-teman kantor baru saja keliling-keliling di Batu dan Malang untuk wisata kuliner :D Nginep 1 hari di villa dan makan terus sepanjang hari. LOL.

Kalo bicara soal Kota Batu, apa sih yang lebih khas dibandingkan Apel Batu dan Susu KUD Batu? (KUD di sini artinya Koperasi Unit Desa kan? Ato ada kepanjangan lain? :p) Berhubung ngga sempat beli Apel Batu, tentu aja aku ngga mau melewatkan beli Susu KUD Batu nya.

Denger-denger pusatnya Susu KUD Batu itu di alun-alun kota Batu, tapi berhubung ngga ngelewatin sana, akhirnya beli susu di warung yang ini (kata temen kantor sih sama aja). Ya sudah mampir untuk beli~ ^_^

Bagi yang belum tau, susu pasteurisasi dari Kota Batu ini terkenal banget lho. Kalau temen ada yang pulang / mampir ke Batu, kadang-kadang aku todong untuk dititipin :p Buahahaha.. untung orangnya mau, tapi kalo pas ngga bisa dititipin ya apa boleh buat.. *meratap di pojokan.
