Purely Silent's log

Dramas, anime and manga fangirling.

— March 5, 2017

Haven’t updated in a while, but here I am 🙂

I dropped ‘Fushigi Yuugi’.

It was becoming too much of a no no. Some parts of the story simply don’t make sense and the main character’s priorities don’t seem to be set the right way. Anyways, I simply couldn’t stand watching it any longer. 😦

After that I started watching a strange anime called ‘House of the Five Leaves’ that weirdly enough I had never seen anywhere before on the internet… °-° How could I?

I instantly fell in LOVE

However, being the person I am, I stopped watching it half-way through and started a TV series called ‘The man In The High Castle’ instead.

‘House of the Five Leaves’ wasn’t bad, not at all, I really liked it. It gives off a very relaxing feeling and it is very easy to follow. The only reason for which I dropped it to start the other series is that I’m a WWII-related-stuff trash.

I couldn’t overlook that so here I am, watching ‘The Man In The High Castle’ 🙂

I’m at episode five of the first season. I think I’m liking it pretty well. I’m not too sure because I’m still only at the beginning, but it is definitely keeping me attracted.

There are already some characters that I love, like mr. Smith, Joe, the marshall… As usual I still don’t remember their names, it always takes some time for me to remember them. 🙂

Apart from this, I watched a lot of V-lives (BTS) and I keep falling for the guys even more as time goes on ❤

Looking good, don’t they..? 🙂 ❤

Let’s get down to it. What the hell have I been doing lately? I don’t even remember, ahah.

The point is that I recently started a Korean Diary, to practice what I’m learning and because I’ve never kept a diary before. However, I’m the type of person that sucks at multitasking or keeping up with more things at once, so I ended up abandoning this blog…

I’m still trying though, I don’t want to drop anything just yet. I’m only at my fifth month, I want to reach at least a year with ‘Purely Silent’s log’.

Thanks to everyone that take their time to read my crazy fangirling. ❤ (especially renxkyoko, a huge thanks for always reading and commenting on my posts 🙂 )

A week passed since my last post and so much happened! *internal screaming* 🙂

  • I dropped ‘Poco’s Udon World’ not because I didn’t like it, but because I chose to use all my time to do the following stuff. Poco’s Udon World is very sweet and refreshing, just like ‘Usagi Drop’ so I hope I’ll remember to watch it again properly in the future.
  • I started and completed ‘Taiyou no Ie’! After, how much, three years? I finally completed it! I first started reading it back in my second year of high school and I instantly fell in love with it ❤ I read all the chapters that were available but at the time it was still ongoing. I re-read it a couple times but I was never able to read the whole thing because the chapters weren’t being translated. (I’m not complaining, I really appreciate all the volunteer translators :3) I couldn’t believe my own eyes when I found out that it was finally completed! I instantly dived into the scans and kept going at it until there were none left. The art, the story… everything is just great about this manga, really. ❤
  • I finally got the 25-days-streak badge on memrise but I forgot to complete the daily goal on the 27th day so I’ll have to start back from 0 if I want to get a higher badge. 😦
  • I switched studying korean from howtostudykorean.com to talktomeinkorean.com and I’m enjoying it a lot more. I completed level 1 and I was able to understand the dialog to test if I understood all the lessons so far.
  • I was looking trough my blog and saw the post about ‘The Greatest Marriage’ and I randomly read the line at the bottom. When I noticed I was like, hell yeah!! 🙂
  • I started and completed ‘Yumemiru Taiyou’! For the same reason as for ‘Taiyou no Ie’ I never completed it until the day before yesterday. The night in which I finished it, when I went to bed, I actually cried a little bit for how happy I were for Shimana (the main character). T^T I still cry in my heart every time I think of this two manga… ❤ ❤ While ‘Taiyou no Ie’ had a more “mature” kind of art, ‘Yumemiru Taiyou’ has more of a cute, girly, kind of art. The stories are very similar and exactly what I love in mangas. No matter what, this two guys here are in my top manga list and I’m definitely re-reading them some time in the future when I’m going to be done with exams. 🙂
  • I was watching videos on Youtube when I found this program kind of thing called ‘Guerilla Date’ where Kpop idols go to the streets or universities and such to meet fans and do fun stuff. Well in a certain episode there was Song Joong Ki ( ❤ ) and he was asked a few question in an interview and he said that Park Si Yeon was the sexiest married woman he had ever seen. So, being the person I am, I googled who this Park Si Yeon was and found out that she’s ‘The Greatest Marriage”s Cha Gi Yeong—!!! I saw her in that drama for the first time ever and I instantly fell for her acting, and beauty. She’s seriously good! ❤ So yeah, I agree with you Song Joong Ki 🙂
  • I went on Youtube early in the morning and saw in my feed a video about BTS members dating. First I went like “Whaaaaat??”, actually shocked, not because I didn’t want them to or anything like that, but because I didn’t expect it at all. I mean, they surely didn’t look like they had time to date and stuff, they have been doing so much stuff and appearing in different shows and so on… D: Anyways, apparently something like this did happen once in the past with V and Jungkook but it turned out to be just a rumor. Actually I don’t really care. I still love the guys and if they are happy then I’m happy too, no matter what they do (as long as it’s legal ahahha). I don’t see why idols have to hide their relationships, fans sometimes sure can be cruel… D: Anyways, BigHit doesn’t have a ban on dating so I don’t think there’s anything wrong in those guys to finally have a peace of mind. The have been working very hard to reach where they are today. ❤
  • Both me and my little sister finished what we were doing (me reading those two manga and her reading stories on Wattpad) so we don’t know what to watch! D: But we sort of decided to give ‘When a Snail Falls in Love’ a shot and watch it again (me for the third time and her for the second time 🙂 )

[Little Update] I thought it would be cute to add some pics in memory of ‘Taiyou no Ie’ and ‘Yumemiru Taiyou’ ❤

Oh, and for the rest of the time I read ‘Oresama teacher’. I already have a huge amount of screens… I’m going to fill my new PC!! D:

I’m actually considering watching this whole TV show, it seems pretty funny and they have different celebrities each time… *-*

Also, I happened to see in a related video’s thumb that appearently they also starred Park Bo Gum ❤ I’m heading there sooner or later! I won’t let it escape ahahahha ❤

2016 – Recap — January 6, 2017

2016 – Recap

If I wrote the title it can only mean that this post is on a different level than the others. The only other time I used it it was for a “review”, when I was still naive and I thought that I could somehow write reviews. Now I know my place, I know that I definetely suck at writing so I’m simply going to keep my crappy writing style and use this blog for short, title-less posts.

That being said, we’re in 2017 now. As the slow person that I am, every one is writing about the new year already and I just decided of doing a recap of last year. You know, to keep up with the trend… Not really. I just thought that it would be great to have a post showing all of my achievements last year (nearly failing my highschool graduation exam because I read manga all the time, failing my university entrance exam because I was watching kpop videos  and dramas all the time, nearly failing my math exam because I was too busy watching korean tv shows all the time, not going to uni to watch drama and anime all day…). Good times, yes.

Without further blabbering, let’s do it!

I still feel like I could have done better though, I’ll try harder this year.

Everytime I’m doing a recap I can’t help it but fell that it’s a waste how I end up dropping series at the last couple episodes… Even if it’s good, I never really feel like completing it. Weird, right?

After all this year wasn’t that bad… I was able to watch lot of good series and read lots of good stuff, I have no complaints.

With this, the recap is done! Farewell 2016, let’s dive into 2017! 🙂

— December 10, 2016

[Recap]

  • I completed re-watching ‘Hyouka’!!! D: I know, it’s a huge shocker isn’t it? Never in my life did I finish re-watching a series, ever. I’d always drop it halfway because I already knew what was going to happen. However, for unknown reasons, I did complete the whole series. 🙂 *cheers*
  • I started ‘Assassination Classroom’ the second season! ❤ Nice and hilarious.
  • I finally started studying for my exams and I only have one week left before I take it, I’m screwed! ㅠㅠ
  • I’ve been watching tons of kpop videos (mainly BTS, but not only) and discovered the existence of ‘BTS dating games’ that I felt in need to try. (I’ll share some of my result-stories later on, ahahah.) ❤ ❤
  • I dedided to try and create an android app from scratch even though it will surely be very hard… D: a kpop chatting app or something like that.. just a little project to get started with programming (?)
  • I made up my mind on recording kpop song covers once I get my new phone and headphones. ❤

Woah.

Finally back on the PC, yass–!! ❤ *giddy*

Mom has beek sick this last week and she’s been home the whole time. Her Ipad broke so she’s been using this same PC, reason why I didn’t post anything lately.

I haven’t had much time to watch or read anything lately as I’ve been studying for my exams. I’m seriously having it rough here.. never wished to be a housewife more than I did in this last month. *crying in italian*

Anyways, here is a fast recap!

  • Whe dropped ‘White Collar’ because it wasn’t “safe” to watch in our situation. Too bad, it was a promising series ㅠㅠ
  • We (more like I) started ‘Devil May Cry’, and oldy but a goldie (?) but soon dropped it because we wanted something different… more like ‘Nanatsu no Taizai’ (yeah, we were still mourning about it, lmao)
  • Looked for something to watch like crazy and ended up re-watching that damn good anime called ‘Hyouka’. Seriously, it’s a 2013 anime but the artwork, the colors and the story are just ducking perfect! ❤ And no, I did not drop it yet, I’m planning on re-watching the whole thing. 🙂
  • Stopped reading mangas since mom took the PC and sincerely right now I don’t even remember what I was reading anymore, ahahah.

I hope I didn’t forget anything… I’ll try to keep it updated and post any news.

Oh, I’ve also been playing Osu! again, still not that great.. I’m in the 86k right now.. (mania).

Mom went out this afternoon so I took the PC and, guess what, I spent the afternoon on Youtube fangirling like I’ve never done before over Kpop ❤ ❤ (I seriously don’t even get why today I’m so hyped about it, ahahah).

[Last few days recap]

Still haven’t completely gotten over ‘Roommate’, it was simply so good… Since I completed it I couldn’t go in imagination sekai anymore and I’m just that mad about it.

In the mean time Trump became president to everyone’s shock even though I knew it was gonna happen… To now, he doesn’t seem to have done anything weird and seems to have instead done some good stuff so.. heads up!

Anyways, I don’t know if I mentioned it before, but I started a drama called ‘The greatest Marriage’, pretty good. It’s taking me company.

It is full of ups and downs, every time I think stuff is gonna go in a certain direction it ends up going another way ahahha, it’s refreshing. 🙂

Couldn’t sleep properly this night because I was bleeding and it hurt as duck. D:

I woke up at two from the pain and suffered for the rest of the night.

Woke up at 8 a.m., mom was not home, started binge watching the drama.

I really am shit. I don’t do shit the whole day and still complain.. ah..

Oh, yeah, the real news?

Yesterday I went out with Nè to Modena to grab her new glasses and go to A.’s new office to check it out.

It was good 🙂 He even offered us icecream ❤ and we watched a couple episodes from ‘Nanatsu no Taizai’.

That anime!! :O I did see it here and there but I always snobbed it because I thought it was one of those mainstream, clichè anime. Never been more wrong!! OMG ❤

That thingy is so cool and cute ❤ ❤ I swear, even though he’s so little and shota-like.

Me and Nè are planning on keep watching it, which is super weird if you think that Nè does NOT just watch every anime and that she hasn’t watched anime at all recently..

It’s just… BAAAAAM!!! 뱀–!! (If you know what I mean– Roommate reference heheh, *giddy* ❤ ❤ [UPDATE]: Sneak-y much? )

I swear this days I can’t even go on youtube without feeling sad or missing my guys.. 😦

Last few days’ recap:

  • I did NOT continue ‘Ascension’ and I won’t play it for a while because shit is happening and I’m not into it right now.
  • I completed the first season of ‘Medaka Box’, quite disappointing… I expected more from it 😦  I am not watching the second season.
  • I didn’t know what to watch and ended up watching ‘Shelter’ and OMG! ❤ ❤ That thing was awesome, short (6 minutes) but good.
  • Started playing another otoge  (otome game) called Eldarya. It is definetely done better than ‘Ascension’ but the story is not as good. I still like it and I’ve been playing for two days now, there are only four chaps as of right now and I’m stuck at the third because I can’t find something I have to find. Also, I nearly spent all my Maana on customizing my character and did not think it thru because I need that stuff for nearly everything, even walking needs Maana… 😦
  • Watched a movie called ‘Hotaru no Mori e’. It was good, I was left quite bad and kinda sad because it doesn’t have a happy ending and my policy is not to watch tragedies… but hey, it happened. No matter what I enjoyed it and I think I even gave it an 8 on MAL, not sure. 🙂
  • Started watching ‘Psycho Pass 2’ once again! Re-watching the first episodes, I really don’t understand why I didn’t like it last time… Ok, the characters aren’t the same but once you get over that, the new characters are cool too. Psycho Pass is definetely not the kind of series where they keep charcters to make you happy, hahah.
  • I’m at 93k on Osu! Yass! ❤ Working hard on it hun’…
  • I didn’t finish even the first chap of ‘Death is my BFF’, didn’t feel like reading it. >.<

Uhh… Doesn’t it look like I’ve done more in the last couple days than ever in my life?? D:

This shows just how much I’ve been studying… Get a hold of yourself!! D:
