Mirai Nikki

Lately I have been reading a lot mangas, and at some point I spent all my time reading it from the first chapter until the recent chapter. Mirai Nikki, or Future Diary, is one of them.

This manga was published in either Kreko or Arena Komik (I can't remember which one, and I don't know if it is still shown). I read the manga like when I was Form 5, and only a few chapters, so I didn't really feel like missing it too much.

Until last 2 weeks, when I was browsing through the list of mangas in MangaFox, I came across the manga, and try to read it. I was surprised by how deep and twisted the plot is, since I thought it was a more straight-forward manga. Then without realizing it, I read until the second last chapter within one night.

The manga is about a group of people who wield a future diary, a diary that can show upcoming events within certain range. These people need their diary to survive, as the diary wielder need to kill each other, and the last survivor will be selected as the next God.

At first I thought the plot couldn't get any better. But as I read through the chapters, there are a lot of surprises that kept me saying "just one more chapter!"

The most interesting character, in my opinion, is Gasai Yuno. She is the best student in her school, excelling in everything that she does. But behind her cute face, lies the psychotic-killer-who-will-do-anything-for-her-love. Seriously, she can kill anyone without hesitating a bit. And in her house, she kept the bodies of her parents that she killed.

"I'll kill anyone for you!"

But the mangaka did a great job on revealing her reasons and causes of becoming like that, and it serves as the most important plot in the manga.

Somehow I really like mangas/animes that deal with our thinking and morale. They made me think a lot of stuff (morality, choices etc) instead of just reading it absent-minded. I can't wait for Mirai Nikki's final chapter!

Just a random rants about a manga~ hee

New College Life In UKM

After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

Because of What Someone Said

So a few days ago, I visited Borders Bookstore in IOI City Mall to get a book for a friend of mine. Incidentally, it is also my favorite bookstore, due to its quite nice selection of books and its location from my house. Anyway, the book that I wanted to buy was The End of Average by Todd Rose. I already finished that book (I want to write about it as well later), so I recommended it to my friend and she asked me to buy one for her. I had an exam on the day after but as far as I'm concerned, reading is more important than any exams that I will most likely forgot in a few weeks.

Also, each time I visit a bookstore, I will always walk out the store with at least one book. So, besides the book that I intended to buy, I bought two other books because I found it interesting. I know, it is a truly 'good' idea to buy two books when you have an exam tomorrow. In this post, I want to talk about the reason why I picked up one of the books.

Being Different Is Lonely

From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…
