    Umineko No Naku Koro Ni Review

    by chad

    Umineko No Naku Koro Ni, or When Seagulls Cry / When They Cry 3, is the successor to the exceptional anime Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (When Cicadas Cry) by Ryukishi07, but didn’t quite rate as great for many. Most were probably turned off by this show because they were expecting something Higurashi-like. Although Umineko sports similar concepts (parallel dimensions, grotesque murders, misery) reminiscent of its predecessor, it takes on a risky yet new approach by dwelling away from mystery-solving to a battle of wits between magic and reality using logic and reasoning.

    It has its flaws and didn’t quite make the legendary impact Higurashi did, but the good things found in this anime still outweighs the bad. And I still love it nonetheless.

    Plot: In year 1986, the annual family conference of the Ushiromiyas is held at their private property Rokkenjima Island. The four family members, along with their spouses and children, arrive at the island to discuss how the assets will be divided among them once the old and near-dead family head, Kinzo Ushiromiya, passes away. Shortly after, a typhoon traps them in the island and bizarre things started to happen where people in the island start dying.

    How to Have Different Wallpapers for Dual Monitors

    by chad

    For those who have dual monitors (extended displays) on their PCs and want each to have different wallpapers but don’t know how, then you’re in luck! I just tried it out myself after looking at some awesome computer workstations people from all over the world posted. I usually don’t really care about having ‘connecting’ wallpapers as long as they’re ‘relaxing’ enough to let me do my work properly, but I still wanted to try it out anyway! Now, first things first!

    This is what we are aiming for:

    This tutorial will be on a Windows 7 system, and without the use of any third-party software

    Basically, the concept here is just having one image file of your liking with the combined dimensions of both monitors. In my case, both of my monitors are 1920×1080 (Full HD) so I’m going to need a 3840×1080 wallpaper.

    Don’t know your monitors’ dimensions? Just click ‘CTRL+PrtSc‘, open Photoshop, create a new image (dimensions should be automated to the size of the last image you copied, which is your monitors) and there you have it! Press ‘CTRL+ALT+I‘ to get the width and height. It’d be best if you have both monitors with the same dimensions. It will be more work if not.

    Here’s mine:

    Working!! Review

    by chad

    Finally, a comedic slice-of-life anime that completely does away with the traditional and cliché high school life! I first found out about Working!! (Wagnaria in the US) after looking up Neregate’s list of upcoming anime for the fall of 2011 – the amusing plot review bundled along with the list captured me instantly. I guess that is mainly because of how this show’s atypical characters aging from 16-28, all with their own distinct weirdness in life, try to blend in with the rest of the crew to make their restaurant working the way it should. Though such attempts would always end in hilarious confrontations.  Season 2 is yet to be out, so be sure to watch the 13 episodes of season one first!

    Plot: Everything starts out at the family restaurant Wagnaria, where 17-year old yet elementary student-looking Poplar Taneshima is asked by branch manager Kyouko Shirafuji to look for a new part-timer since they have been understaffed lately. Upon asking classmates, friends and eventually strangers around town, Taneshima stumbles upon our main guy Souta Takanashi and asks him if he wants the job.

    Thinking that the petite girl in front of him is an elementary student, he asked if she was lost and even volunteered to accompany her to the police station – until Taneshima shows her high school ID which in fact revealed her to be his senior in school. Loving all things cute, small and 12-year old below, Takanashi agreed to work as a part-timer purely for Taneshima’s sake. He didn’t know what was waiting for him in Wagnaria.

    On his first day, Takanashi learned the basics on how to do his job properly. That of course included meeting the other staff of Wagnaria, which he initially thought of as nice and hardworking people.

    It didn’t take awhile day to shatter those first impressions – branch manager Kyouko eats away the restaurant’s food supply and barely does any work, Taneshima is always made fun of because of her height, chef Satou always smokes and has anger management problems, chef Souma awfully knows a lot about the other staff and uses that knowledge as leverage, floor chief Todoroki always carries a katana in her waist and Inami is an androphobe who punches any guy that comes near her by reflex. Takanashi is not exempted from this circle of weirdness either, since he’s labeled as a lolicon by the others due to his unusual liking to anything cute, small, weak and 12-year old below (Taneshima being an exemption).

    Time of Eve Review

    by chad

    I really love watching shows portraying what technology and people’s lifestyles would be like in the future. Mainly those that deliberately think outside of the box, but still puts effort in justifying the concepts that would still make them sit within the boundaries of logic and reason – therefore persuading the viewers that the circumstances in that anime have a slight possibility happening in the real world. Time of Eve, or Eve no Jikan, is one of the best I’ve seen so far.

    Plot:In the future, probably Japan. Robots have long seen practical use, and this is the era just after the common deployment of androids.” quoted the introduction at the beginning of the show. Androids have already been a commodity to the community, where they help the human population with work, household chores, preparing meals, shopping, directing traffic and other trivial work. Since they literally look alike, You can simply distinguish androids from humans by their status ring (or halo) above their heads. Having taken for granted androids his entire life, Rikuo Sakisaka notices his android’s strange actions upon checking its recent movement records. It seems it frequently goes to an unknown area in which he doesn’t command it to and gets the phrase “Are you enjoying the Time of Eve?” along with the records.

    He asks his friend and classmate Masakazu Masaki to help him investigate. By following the GPS coordinates, they were able to find a suspicious steel door in an empty alley. When they got in, they discovered a secret cafe which goes by the name Time of Eve. In front of the entrance stands a digital board that states the cafe’s only rule: “In this shop, there is no discrimination between humans and robots. Customers, please cooperate. Obey the rule and have a fun time.

    World of Warcraft – Play Online for Free!

    by chad

    My brother insisted on installing World of WarCraft in my desktop since there’s a promo where you can play the game for free. I’m not really a fan of WarCraft /DotA / WoW which have been all the rage to the young’ns these past years, though I have finished the original WarCraft III and its Frozen Throne campaigns. Seriously, in my college days, all the girls would always throw a fit about their boyfriends wasting time on playing DotA than spending it with them. The other persevering and patient girlfriends though, would just learn the damn game so they could join in the fun with the boys.

    First things first: What’s the promo and how can you play it for free? What’s the catch? We’ll, there isn’t any really. Just that the possibility of you getting addicted to the game and then finally agreeing to pay the monthly fee of 500PHP per month, just like a drug. I’m most certain that I won’t. Hopefully lol. Anyway, you can play it for FREE up to level 20 and you can decide whether to continue or not after.

    So here are the steps to get that game and start playing:

    1.) Go to Battle.Net by clicking here
    2.) Create your account
    3.) Add World of WarCraft to your games in your account
    4.) Download WoW from the link provided
    5.) Install and Download Updates (Might take awhile)
    6.) Play!

    You can also create multiple characters with one account, so you don’t have to worry too much on what race or class you should choose. I selected a Mage from the Night Elf race and named him Seravee, which is named after Tieria Erde’s first Gundam. Then I’ve upgraded him to a Frost Mage and is now currently roaming the woods of Teldrassil at level 13. I guess I’m a tad bit late in the game, but I wanted to try it out anyway. Makes me remember that crazy South Park episode ‘Make Love, Not WarCraft‘ (Season 10, episode 08) where the boys dedicated their lives to defeating an ultra-strong player-killer and save the World of WarCraft. Even though it was aired 5 years ago (2006), it’s still funny as hell!

    Honestly, after trying this game out, I found myself having the urge to play the game every now and then. This is probably because I find it more versatile than the usual ‘keep killing an endless torrent of enemies to level up‘ type of game. It’s more fun and filled with adventure since you mainly gain experience by completing quests. And there are tons to choose from ranging from delivering packages, obtaining items, venturing labyrinths, killing big bosses, going into different towns and places, etc. as if it’s main goal was to avoid you getting bored and getting you to stick to the screen for as long as possible. But of course, if you’re the rational, self-controlling individual, this won’t pose much of a threat and would be a good way to waste surplus time. In the end, it’s the gamer’s heart that decides which games that gamer desires. But if you plan on playing, don’t forget to add Seravee!

    Ten Rules for Being Human

    by chad

    Cherie Scott reminds us about the ten rules we should take note upon entering this world:

    1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period.

    2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, “life.”

    3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately “work.”

    4. Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.

    5. Learning lessons does not end. There’s no part of life that doesn’t contain its lessons. If you’re alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.

    6. “There” is no better a place than “here.” When your “there” has become a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here.”

    7. Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

    8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

    9. Your answers lie within you. The answers to life’s questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

    10. You will forget all this.

    Natsume Yuujinchou Review

    by chad

    Backed with a unique solid plot and character development that encompasses the heartfelt struggles with loneliness and indifference from society between beings in the human and spirit world, Natsume Yuujinchou, or Natsume’s Book of Friends, is a really touching show that delivers just the right mix of drama, comedy and suspense strong enough to move one’s heart every episode. This anime is episodic, so you don’t have to watch the other ones to be able to relate. Season 3 just started airing last July 5, so better catch up!

    Plot: Ever since he was a little orphan, Natsume Takashi has been shunned by the people around him, both friends and foster families alike, because he always talks to and looks at things that are not there. But in reality, he can actually see Ayakashi (beings from the spirit world, not dead human ghosts), an ability he inherited from his late grandmother Natsume Reiko. Upon her death, Reiko bestows her prized belonging, the Book of Friends, to Takashi. This book comprises the names of the Ayakashi Reiko bullied into servitude, which she can also call and command anytime.

    Natsume and Madara in his true form

    Having the coveted Book of Friends in his possession, Ayakashi in the neighborhood began attacking Takashi with the hopes of stealing it from him. At such times, he would just run to the nearest shrine where such spirits cannot enter. On the first episode, he accidentally releases a sealed Ayakashi in the form of a fat cat named Madara while running for his life.

    Ano Hana Review

    by chad

    Ano Hana is just how people generally refer to it, but the show’s official name is really Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai which translates to “We Still Don’t Know the Name of the Flower We Saw That Day.” Yeah, I think that’s the longest anime title currently on record. Lol. It’s last episode just aired last June 24 so I guess I’d write about it while the intense emotional impact it had on me was still fresh – and I doubt it’s going to get away anytime soon. All thanks to the Zone/Scandal ending song Secret Base (10 Years After ver.) covered by our three leading ladies.

    Plot: Jinta Yadomi, a reclusive high school student on the verge of dropping out, starts hallucinating his dead childhood friend Menma and considers it a mental ailment due to stress and the summer heat. Unable to ignore her any longer, he decides to humor his ‘stress’. On the first episode, they would incidentally meet their other childhood friends Anaru, Yukiatsu, Tsuruko and Poppo while walking around town. Jintan tells Menma how they have drifted apart and changed after the years, and are now indifferent with each other.

    Menma then says she appeared because she wants a wish to be granted, but doesn’t have any idea what it is – only that the five of them must be present for it to be fulfilled. Jintan, remembering his childhood memories having no closure at all, decides to bring back their group together and make Menma’s wish come true.
