Looking at two different Intel Wolfdale. A slight upgrade for my HTPC.

So, I was busy with my HTPC trying to keep the power consumption as low as possible but doesn’t want to sacrifice the performance too much. At least it can handle 1080p 10bit video. I know that 4K is more future proof. However, the lack of 4K contents for now makes me think twice to purchase the parts needed, Continue reading

The products themselves are designed by many popular Japanese artists, including Shimada Humikane who is well-known as the creator of Mecha Musume. Many product models were released since its first released since 2006. Several video games about Busou Shinki were also released since 2007 following the popularity of the product itself. That is the short preview about Busou Shinki.

In addition, there is 1 OVA released later in June 26, 2013 serves as the prologue and epilogue of the TV Anime. I doubt this anime was successful due to the weak rating. However, my opinion about this anime remains positive. The anime managed to capture my interest due to its storyline.

The story takes place in alternate universe where Tanks used as sports competition. So, the story is not about war but about sports competition. Back then, I was reluctant to watch this anime because I mistook the story as a war story. Fortunately, it is not. It’s quite lightweight, entertaining, and inspiring. The sports where people (specifically, girls) compete with their tanks is called Sensha-dou, literally means “The Way of the Tank”. The story will follow the activities of girls in Ooarai Female High School with Nishizumi Miho as the lead character. Miho is not alone of course. There are so many characters in this anime.

Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui!, so bad yet so good

Watamote - Title
Another anime produced by Silver Link. The title in short, Watamote. This anime really has a very long title. Even until write this post, I still can’t quite remember the full title. This anime was aired from July 9, 2013 to September 24, 2013 with 12 total episode. We also got an OVA later released in October 22, 2014.
The story focuses on one character only, Kuroki Tomoko. The story starts when Tomoko enter high school. It focuses on Tomoko’s daily activity, mostly about how difficult she tries to make a change in her life as a high school girl. It’s not a happy. In fact, it feels kinda sad. I really feel sorry to Tomoko, even more than what I felt for myself. She gets a hard time to communicate with other people outside of her house. However, that is actually the main jokes in this anime. It’s a comedy anime after all. Most of the time, you won’t be disappointed with the story. Continue reading

Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru, the burden of being a hero

Yuuki Yuuna - Title
Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru is an anime with fantasy, action, and magical girl theme. This anime was aired from October 17, 2014 to December 26, 2014 with the length of 12 total episode. The anime is the sequel of Novel Washio Sumi wa Yuusha de Aru which was already released earlier in 2014.

My impression with this anime is mostly filled with hatred. I tried the elements of surprised by not looking for anime information at all about this anime. However, I don’t like the concept. I watched this anime because Uchiyama Yumi and Mimori Suzuko are in the main cast list but this anime failed to impress me mainly in story. While I was satisfied with the ending, Continue reading
