Stage Report: Touken Ranbu Stage Tenden: Aozora no Tsuwamono -Seige of Osaka Winter Campaign-

Last month, I was able to get a chance to watch a live viewing of a Touken Ranbu Stage. Actually, this was my second Touken Ranbu stage, but my first in seeing the swords on their mission. 

Note: There may or may not be any spoilers of the play in this post. I will do my best to try to not spoil the story and any important scenes. Except for the official visuals, I will not be using any pictures of the stage play in respect of the staff, cast, and committees. There were rules when watching a live performance of a stage play/musical and that includes not screenshotting any parts of the play (a mistake I did in past posts!). As a result, this will be more word heavy, but I will try to put other pictures that I can use if it’s relevant to the post. Please read at your own discretion.

Book Walker: A Site for All your Manga and Light Novel needs

After a hard day of work, wouldn’t you like to sit back and relax while drinking a nice cup of coffee or tea? Maybe even opening up a good book you wanted to read? I know I would! When watching anime and playing video games gets tiring, I would sometimes get the urge to just sit and read. Sadly, living in Japan and especially in the rural areas, there aren’t many bookstores that would have books in English.

How To Learn About Japanese Culture Through Anime

Hanami - Zerochan Anime Image Board

I was looking through my twitter feed when I suddenly remembered how a lot of people kept telling me that I know so much about Japanese culture and history and kept asking “How do I know so much about Japan or japanese culture?”. It gave me an idea for this blog post since my answer to their question has always been the same: I learned them through anime. Continue reading “How To Learn About Japanese Culture Through Anime”

Musical “Touken Ranbu”: Swords Protecting History While Singing

After watching MANKAI STAGE, I thought I would give another 2.5D Theater a try. So the next 2.5D I watched was the Musical “Touken Ranbu” and seeing my favorite swords in real life.

If you want to know what I am talking about or if your a little curious about 2.5D Theater, you can check this blog post I made before.

MANKAI STAGE! 2.5D Stage Play Bringing Anime, Game, and Manga to Life

Recently, I have been getting myself into theatre plays and I’m not just talking about musicals or Broadway-style theatre; I’m talking about one unique type that only Japan would come up with: 2.5D Theatre.

I never thought I would be interested in this type of theatre until I stumbled across Mankai Stage, a stage play based of the app game A3! Act! Actors! Addict!. It wasn’t even my first 2.5D Theatre, but this was the first stage play that got me hooked and introduced me to other stage plays.

I saw Digimon: Last Evolution Kizuna and it gave me satisfying end

I should have started writing this post last month, but with so many things happening in my life especially with the Corona virus spreading, I wasn’t able to get around to it until now.

Last month, I was able to watch Digimon: Last Evolution Kizuna in theaters. Since I live in Japan, I was able to only watch it in Japanese with no English subtitles. Living in Japan for a year, I was able to at least understand enough of what the characters are saying to get a gist of the story.

I will try not to give out any spoilers, but as a Digimon fan I want to at least give out my own opinion about the movie.
