    Humiliating the Main Character for a character Growth

    This is rather common (at least from what I see) in Action Harem like High School DxD and Absolute Duo. The MC will say some cringey line like "I will protect XXX!" in a real shonen series protagonist fashion, only to have their ass kicked by the antagonist. And the worst part is, the reason...

    Is explaining too much a bad thing?

    Sometimes, I feel the need to explain some things about a character I wrote since I'm scared that my reader will misundertand him/her if I didn't do it. However, I'm also scared that some readers might think that I'm dragging things out by telling them something they already know. I was first...

    The curious and forbidden topic of hand-holding

    Now put down those torches and pitchforks and listen to me. How did the phenomenon of holding hands being lewd started? I've been reading on in amusement every time it was brought up but now I'm genuinely curious. Can someone enlighten me?

    people who won't shut up about the people/stuff they hate

    Recently, I have a reader (if I can even call him that) who kept on posting negative comments on one of the novels that I write. One of the more recent comments that he wrote goes somewhere along the line of "will this be the novel everyone hates? guess we'll find out". I've stopped reading his...

    tired of the Western movie makers insulting our sacred Animes, Mangas and Games

    I read from somewhere (it was so brief I don't remember where) that they're going to be making a Western version of Hellsing. My first reaction is: seriously? Just how much of our bibles do you idiots want to taint? You've already tainted Dragon Ball, Ghost in the Shell, Monster Hunter, and it's...

    A better plot for the Monster Hunter Movie (in my opinion)

    So I was watching a Monster Hunter Movie Review by a Youtuber that I subscribed to. The movie's basically a western Isekai. As a veteran hunter who played majority of the MH games (right from the first one in PS2), I was deeply disappointed by the movie. I didn't watch the movie, and after...

    Why I don't really talk to my parents

    So I promised my parents that I'll be helping around the house a few days ago. Just now, my mum wanted me to help, but I grumbled that I can't since I was busy with my college project. Granted, I could have said it politely, but I was so frustrated with the amount of work I had to do my manners...

    Random birthday thought

    So, today's my birthday, and without any warning I had a philosophical thought about losing some of the passions I had while growing up. I had played the triangle instrument three times before I became an adult. Once during my time at the daycare in Japan, once after I was at the kindergarten...

    one of the worst teacher I ever had

    So this just popped into my mind just now very randomly, so I had the need to talk about it. When I was 11, we had a test during a Mandarin language class. This test involves memorizing an entire essay and puking it out during the test itself. Before the test begins, my Mandarin teacher, who's...

    regarding cultural festivals in animes and mangas

    So I was writing about cultural festival in one of my series. The MC's class is doing a Japanese cafe that serves Japanese sweets. And then it hit me. How did those characters in animes and mangas who set up eateries in their classrooms wash their cutleries and cups? And no, they didn't use...
