Noblesse Korean Animation VS Anime

In the post before, we talked about one of my favorite manwha: Noblesse. What makes this manwha even more special, is that there is a Korean Animation (OVA) and a 30-minute short anime of it. I saw them both and here is my review about it.

Korean Animation

Rai in the Korean OVA

In my opinion, I think that the Korean OVA could be much better in many ways. I really like the story. It tells you more about the relationship between Rai and Muzuka and why they are enemies now. The animation looks pretty old if you compare it with the anime, but that isn’t the bad part. I really don’t like the voice actors that they used. This made the whole story quite boring for me...

Noblesse manwha

Well some of you know that I’m a big manga and manwha fan. So I wanted to talk about (what I think) the most known manwha and it’s one of my favorites as well.

I started to read this in the summer of 2014 when they were just published in English. The manwha is written by Son Jeho and illustrated by Lee Kwangsu and was started on December 30 in 2007 as a webtoon/manwha. This manwha is published on Naver and is still on going.

Noblesse

Noblesse is about a powerful noble vampire. Cadis Etrama Di Raizal (aka Rai because we all know that his name is too long to pronounce it everytime) , the nobblesse wakes up from a 820-year long sleep and starts a new life  in the land which he once knew, that had become an unfamilair place with new technology, attitudes, and lifestyles...

My exam songs

It has been a while since I posted something. Well, that’s because I have been working for school a lot and had my exams.
I listened to a lot of kpop radio during my exams ( yes, we were allowed to listen to music) and I came across a lot of groups that I was not interested in before, but now.. Well let’s say that I’m hooked.

Let’s begin tot alk about the songs that I listened to during my last school period

f(x) – 4 Walls album

f(X) – 4 Walls

I like f(x) but I am not a fan. I just like their songs. Since I heard the album of pink tape, I was more interested in their album than the song ‘Rum Pum Pum’. So when 4 walls came out, I was totally hooked on their album. Until today I really love the songs ‘Rude Love’ and ‘When I’m Alone’ that I totally recommend you to listen!

IKON –  Dum...

Charlotte’s review: Geek in Japan

As we know, Japan isn’t all about manga and anime. But most of us don’t know or just don’t want to know more about the culture of Japan. But, if you want to learn more, Geek in Japan is a good book. It talks about a anime culture, work culture, food and a lot more. It isn’t a guidebook that you could take with you in Japan, but more of a culture guide book for us otaku’s. It’s written for the people who grew up with Pokemon, manga and videogames, better to say, us internet users who wants to learn more about the culture and hopefully travel there one day.

Pocky and Pepero

Valentine’s day is over and you’ve got some pocky from your loved ones ( or you bought it for yourself). You look at it and think: ‘Where is it even coming from? And what is the difference between Pepero and Pocky?’

Pocky new package
‘Sukky’ comes from ‘suki’ which means love and pocky.  But for us forneigers, it’s quite funny.

And what is the history of pocky? And pepero?

Well if you keep reading you will know!

The orginal chocolate covered biscuit was first sold in 1966. The name ‘Pocky’ comes from the sound that you make when you eat it, which is pokkin. In 1976 the original was followed by the (all mighty) almond coating, and in 1977 the strawberry coating came out. Nowadays you have all sorts of flavors like milk, mouse, matcha (green tea), honey, cookies and cream, and many more flavors...

Charlotte’s Review: Kaomoji (◕‿◕)

I thought: I haven’t done a review in a very long time. so here it is!

Today we are going to talk about the online clothes store kaomoji!

Kaomoji

Kaomoji is run by two Dutch graphic designers who love Japanese culture, anime , manga and, ofcourse, fashion! The name kaomoji means japanese smileys. They chose this name, because fashion makes them happy, sad, loved, lazy and crazy.
They express themselves in the way they dress. It all started with designing t-shirts for themselves. They are inspired by watching anime, reading manga and loving Japan. They started to put their designs on the internet and got a lot of positive reactions on it, so they started a shop! From a hobby they turned it into an otaku fashion statement.

In 2015 I ordered the limited edition world hoodie...

14 days’s in South Korea

The 14th of every month is a holiday in South Korea. This is quite ironic, as it is a number to be feared in Asia; the word for four is the same as the word for death. Most of these days are for couples to celebrate their love. We made a list for you!
