Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World.

A must-watch rock comedy IMO.

 

I mean... How can a movie with SUCH SCENE be bad, eh?

Just read this. Will probably add it to the OP.

I'm not so sure about the 90 days part, as that would vary, but this is something that's nice to read.

 

Chinese will be more difficult. Although, my parents bought one of those Chinese streaming boxes that basically streams Chinese television series, learning, martial arts practice, etc. There was a series in the Chinese language learning section that was very interesting to get you to remember characters, by transforming objects themselves into the characters. Very creative.

It should be possible in 90 days, but you have to spend a lot of time and dedication if you want to succeed.
I know myself that even studying half an hour per day can be easy for 1-2 weeks, but it's incredibly difficult to keep up.

I should be picking up a good grammar book for Japanese (web tutorials suck, no matter what you think of them), and just start learning the grammar. My vocab is already such that I only need to follow subs a small amount of the time for specific words when watching SoL anime.

Get Minna no Nihongo. I used that before and IMO, it's good. Though I used an old version, there should be a newer version. I also have other books that I can recommend depending on what you need

Challenge Accepted.jpg

...IF I have the time though. I have Rosetta Stone but haven't use it before LOL. 90 days of consistent learning won't be an easy task, let alone studying something new. Takes a lot of dedication to do that. Plus, for me I won't like it since it was proven that intensive learning does leave any good sign on me

I have it too. It sort of works. Unfortunately you need a decent microphone because when I pronounce things right sometimes it doesn't pick it up and it doesn't go very well. Sometimes they move at a relatively fast pace so you need to just stop and practice, not for me though.

 

But, I'll be learning Chinese first, then Japanese or Korean.

Need a grammar book. And maybe something for learning kanji, but that can come later.

So I was reading this:

Cristo: The Orange Eyed Messiah by Sorano Kaili (released in 2004)

001.jpg

And... well... first thing I should say is that it's bloody short... In fact it's 4 chapters long each containing around 45 pages. It's more of a one shot really.

So what is it exactly?

(Plot taken from Baka-Updates):

Towa became a sweeper admiring the legendary sweeper called, “Orange-Eyed Messiah”. The task of sweeper, which requires to “sweep” the monsters Adys is quite hazardous. On his first real attempt at fighting Adys, Towa encountered Kei, a former sweeper who saved him from being killed.
Towa asked Kei to take him as a student. However, not only Kei plainly rejects Towa’s request, he tells Towa that he saw the “Orange-eyed Messiah” die!? An appearance by a mysterious man who seems to be connected to Kei showed up with a grudge from the past. Who is he and what is his relationship with the “Orange-Eyed Messiah”? Will Towa finds out about Kei’s past too?

After reading this, I'm kind of feeling a bit left out, wanting a lot more but this, I think is justified because it turns out to be Sorano Kaili's first manga and I would classify this more as a one-shot.

The plot itself is not the most original and is honestly quite fastly paced. I wish there was a stronger relationship between the characters and a lot more deeper story but the good thing is that everything that you need to know gets explained as the story progresses and there's a nice balance between action and a bit of comedy as well.

The art though, is just up my street. I'm heavily inspired by Sorano Kaili's art style and in fact, my drawing style is heavily influenced by Sorano's style. I love the design of the clothes, I love how the character and weapon looks but I don't know about you, you might be put off by it.

So to sum it up, not a very original story and very short but it's at least very entertaining, good balance of action and comedy with a great art style that I personally admire.

I rate it a 7.5/10. It's worth a read since it's so short. You wont waste any of your precious time.

Mini Review of Shin Angyo Onshi:

10750-620x-Shin-Angyo-Onshi_Wall1280.jpg

 

 

Overal Rating: 9/10

Enjoyability: 10:10

Characters:8/10

Animation/Art:9/10

Story:9/10

 

 

Synopsis:
In Jushin, there once lived secret government agents called the amen osa (or angyō onshi in the Japanese version), who traveled the countryside in disguise. They were charged by the king with finding and punishing corrupt government officials, and bringing justice to the country's citizens. We are joined by the main character Munshu his bodyguiard Hyang Chun who he calls Sando throughout the story  and also his little servent, Bang Ja. They travel the landscape fighting bad together.

That's the synopsis really. With no spoilers. My mini review will contain little spoilers that you learn in the first few chapters though but as this is a review, they largely won't matter.:
The country or even empire of Jushin that once was. Fell. Munshu traverses the landscapes as a secret government agent that once was in charge of punishing the bad with their powers the king has bestowed. However, who Munshu really is is a mystery for much of the manga or manwha. Why Sando continually follows him is questioned throughout as is their allegiance .

 

Shin Angyo Onshi is not a shounen as the synopsis may take it to seem. It is a seinein. There is a main story line that is in the story, and once you drop onto it, you will go all the way through to a fantastic finish.

 

Characters: 8/10

The characters are good but awfully thin at many times. Munshu has the typically go lucky good tempered but serious when the situation calls for temperment. Sando even though she gives a reason for protecting Munshu, has an awfully thin reason sometimes, although that leads to many other good parts in the story later. One can even question why the heck Sando wears such an attire! Bang Ja is your average comedian that tries to help throughout the story. This is a short character feeling or synopsis as it's supposed to be of very little spoiler material. But even with those downfalls. You are left with a case of characters that fit the story extremely well. They adapt to the story line without missing a beat and don't feel foreign to the ever changing story.

 

Animation/Art:9/10

Filled with luscious drawings during those important scene and easy to follow during action scenes or any of it. The artist draws extremely well. During those super climatical scenes. IT is as if time just stops and a scene that is extraordinarily well drawn just explodes at you. Leaving you looking at the pictures for a minute before all of a sudden the action just rushes into the manga again.

 

Story: 9/10

What seemed to be a journey based manga for the first 2-3 chapters....proved me wrong. The story follows a real story line that takes you form beginning to end on sequences and charcters and events. It makes you love and hate and love and hate. It makes you feel agony, it takes you through different places and time and people. It was an absolutely extraordinary story! One of love, of the supernatural, of their fatasy world and the history of Junshin!

 

Conclusion:

Shin Angyo Onshi is one of the manga that one should read if they are interested in adventure action based manga's with romance tied in as well. IT does not bias towards giving a full cast of female characters or a cast of males and does it's themes extremely well. However this is a manga and only those that like genres like this should  read it!
