Introduction Post/Weekly Check in 5/2/2020

Hello, My name is Sushirainbow. I am a person who likes a variety of things; books, anime, manga, music, unique items, beautiful art, and helping people as much as I can. This post is going to summarize what I posted on Instagram recently, What I am currently watching, and What I am currently reading.

Instagram Post

Today on my Instagram I posted a photo about my Caramel Frappuccino and Bibliophileprints’ Art print about Pumpkin Spice Lattes and it made me think of Fall. Living in a place where it is typically warm, I get cool drinks every moment I can to make myself think of fall https://www.bibliophileprints.com/?sca_ref=73221.4qz30FKG4e <—- use this link if you are interested in this print and more from this shop.

Currently Watching

Lately, I am currently rewatching anime that I watched when I was in middle school (over ten years ago that is all I will say) and trying to see whether they hold up for me or not. So far its been an interesting week. Currently though I am watching Angelic Layer.https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=400

The synopsis that the Anime News Network has is as follows:

“12-year-old Misaki Suzuhara has just gotten involved in Angelic Layer, a battling game using electronic dolls called angels. Even as a newbie, Misaki shows advanced skills as she meets new friends and enters Angelic Layer tournaments to fight the greatest Angelic Layer champions of the nation.” This anime came out in 2001 with its source material from the author CLAMP originally coming out in Japan in 1999. So far so good but we shall see when I finish.

Currently Reading

Manga

I started reading the manga called I want to eat your Pancreas story by Yoru Sumino and art by Idumi Kirihara. The title sounds weird right? I know that is why no one I know wanted to see the movie with me. I picked up this manga because I wanted to revisit this movie and I heard there are discrepancies between the manga and light novel respectively. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07LGG9H2Q/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1

Here’s the synopsis:

“In this deeply moving first-person story, an introverted high school boy finds his classmate’s diary — and learns her biggest secret. Yamauchi Sakura is dying from a pancreatic disease and now he is the only one person outside her family to know the truth. The last thing the boy wants is to be her friend, but Sakura’s cheerful demeanor and their shared secret draw them together in this heartrending tale of friendship and mortality.”

I am not that far into it yet but its exactly what I remember from the movie so far.

Novel

Today’s novel I am currently reading is called Private Lessons by Cynthia Salaysay

This is an ARC or Advanced Reader’s Copy I received from a dear friend of mine because it involves music and hard-hitting topics.

Here is the synopsis: “After seventeen-year-old Claire Alalay’s father’s death, only music has helped her channel her grief. Claire likes herself best when she plays his old piano, a welcome escape from the sadness — and her traditional Filipino mother’s prayer groups. In the hopes of earning a college scholarship, Claire auditions for Paul Avon, a prominent piano teacher, who agrees to take Claire as a pupil. Soon Claire loses herself in Paul’s world and his way of digging into a composition’s emotional core. She practices constantly, foregoing a social life, but no matter how hard she works or how well she plays, it seems impossible to gain Paul’s approval, let alone his affection.”

It is not something that I typically read but I am curious about it nonetheless.

Upcoming Posts

On this blog and my Instagram, I am going to review anime and manga on top of my books. In addition, I may expand on some topics that I post extra on my Instagram or just how I am feeling that day. I hope that this blog is something that can be used to practice my writing and expand my creativity. I hope that everyone enjoys and thank you for reading.

  1. Hiya…Christian, is it? You can call me “Aria” (although it’s not my real name). Lita introduced you in her round-up post and I stopped by to say hi, so that’s exactly what I’ve done.

    Anyways, welcome and hope you’ll stick around.

  2. Welcome to the blogging community! I’ve been rewatching a lot of older anime myself lately and just finished Magic Knight Rayearth. It was pretty fun to revisit so maybe I’ll give Angelic Layer a rewatch next.
