One Piece Chapter 688 Review

This week's One Piece chapter 688 is not as exciting as the previous chapters. Understandable since you will get bored of the fights if they happen in every chapter. So right now, we are at the 'calm' period. This chapter is about Mocha's selflessness to save her friends. It's quite emotional but not as emotional as Robin's in Water 7. 

Zoro carries Tashigi away from poison gas. That is... surprisingly cute. Zoro. Since when you start carrying girls around? This is certainly new! Sanji has a great influence on you, it seems. Zoro is like the reluctant anti-hero, who... angrily saves people. LOL that makes no sense. Next!

Chopper is telling Mocha about the consequence of consuming the Candy Ceasar made. As we know the candy is a drug that enhances 'giantification'. The subjects will die if they continue prolong consumption. Anyhow Chopper is ridiculously emotional in this chapter. Granted, he is a doctor. But boy, he sure is jumpy.  

So sad. The part where the kids want to grow up and set sail for the sea at 20 yet they might not be able to is... pretty sad. MY FEELS. TAKE IT! Chopper, stop crying. You are making me sad. It's not your fault. It's all Ceasar's fault. Let Luffy kick his sorry butt in the next few chapters. It will be super satisfying to read. 

Even though the Straw Hats tried to fend off the giant children, Mocha is still attacked. Poor Mocha. Really, I need to stop thinking about Mocha coffee. That's what happened when you are blogging in the morning. You think of coffee. I am such a bad blogger, currently distracting you from the main topic to other irrelevant subject. Hohoho. 
Taken from Health.com Mmmmm Mocha... Coffee...
So Mocha ate all the candy... (hopefully without the wrapper). Now she looks like a hamster. LOL I am so crude today. 

Chopper is extremely shocked. You can tell he is utterly mortified that Mocha ate all the candies. He doesn't even know what to say. Poor thing.  

Awww poor Mocha. This chapter is seriously messing with my FEELS! So Mocha is now dying from overdose. The other kids are freaking out. Chopper is going all BAMF on them. It's so rare to see Chopper this angry. Normally, he just cries and giggles. To see him angry in his chibi form, this got to be one of the first time.

 Sanji and his new squad of retarded marine arrive. They rough up the other kids. Aww yeah. Punch them good! They were mean with Mocha-chan! Sanji is totally enjoying this. Sanji sure is good at manipulating random men. Before, you have the okama running after Sanji. Now you have marine following Sanji. Yup. He is good. Next he will want the ladies to go after him. Sadly, that won't happen. 

AND FINALLY! Luffy is back on action! Awww yeah! Luffy is going to BAMF the crap out of Ceasar! That! My friends, will be awesome.
People have fur scarf, Luffy got a dragon maaaaaan. In yo face!
Notice: Next week, One Piece is on break. I will go sulk in my lonely corner now. I'm sure the next chapter will be bloody awesome. I hope it will be about Smoker and Vergo. PLEASE!

Do You Know Kpop MBLAQ?

Now, the world is probably very familiar with a genre of kpop by now after the Gangnam Style video went viral. But if you think you know all of Kpop because you know Gangnam Style inside out then you are very, very wrong. Kpop is a very broad term and there are many, many talented groups within the mammoth kpop industry that people don't know about. Time to get exposed to other kpop bands, people!

Alright, MBLAQ fans. Be warned. I am going to mock this MV (This is War) because of its plot which I find to be ridiculous. Don't misunderstand me. I love MBLAQ since it came out years ago. But because I love them so much, I want make fun of them. It's like teasing, you know? Angry fangirls, please don't hurt me... *hide*

I screenshot This is War in high quality so that you guys can enjoy those sexy men and plot to the fullest. 
I absolutely love the song, the chorus, the actors and the dance. MBLAQ has so much potential and it's a pity there haven't been new release lately. Again, Lee Joon is going to play the tragic hero in this MV.

What I like about this MV is the lyrics. It's pretty unusual, even outside of the trendy kpop. It's not really about love. It's about friendship. A betrayed friendship. That's so rare. Nowadays, you hear a lot of broken heart sob story lyrics, new found love... etc. When was the last time you heard a song about 2 best friends (male) and their betrayed friendship? I had heard women singing this on rare occasion, but men?... this is definitely rare! I would strongly recommend you guys to take attention to the lyrics when listening to this song.

So you see Lee Joon with a sniper gun trying to kill the target. Then randomly, another assassin appears and also wants to kill the girl. Somehow Lee Joon is angered. He not only decided not to kill the girl but to save her. So instead of going the job of just sniping the assassin from the rooftop, he went down the building, grabbed the girl and started running. Logic... wait for it... Then the girl got shot on the shoulder. Angered, Lee Joon fought with the assassin using fists and kicks while HOLDING GUNS. Why not... just shoot at each other? Like I said. No logic. After killing the assassin, Lee Joon brought the wounded girl to his hobo friend's place instead of a hospital. 

Of course, said friend (Thunder) was like WTF? Y U BRING A DYING girl to my hobo trailer parked in the middle of a junkyard? Yo wtf bro! This is so not cool! 

Anyway, despite living in a hobo area, the trailer is way too clean. Lee Joon took care of the girl and all happy. This is so weird. LOL. It's almost like Edward-creepy. Almost.

Outside, Lee Joon would practice his shooting with... gun blueprints. So we are going to assume he assembled his own guns from the junk. Right?

Lee Joon then had to leave for unknown reason and asked Thunder to take care of the girl. So doing as asked, the girl and Thunder got closer... and possibly developed a romantic relationship.

Then Lee Joon returned and was EXTREMELY scandalized that his friend and his wounded former target are dating. He was like OMG HOW COULD YOU MESS WITH MY LOVE, BRO? THIS IS WAR! 
It makes. No. Sense. 
I thought you wanted to kill the girl? Ok I get it that you saved her... but dude, you don't even KNOW her. You have been with her for like what? Shooting, running, killing assassin, sitting on her bed... and you disappeared. Thunder, your pal, is the one who is taking care of the girl, INTERACTING with her. 
Anyway, I find the plot absolutely hilarious. Go on. 

Upset by his friend's betrayal, he dragged the girl outside the hobo trailer. Thunder then interfered (he has the right to... since she is HIS GIRLFRIEND).
Lee Joon then punched Thunder and ... wait for it... kicked him right in the balls! With a jump kick.
 I SOOOO SAW THAT DIRTY MOVE! Lee Joon! What... the... hell? LOLOLOLOL WUT?
 I don't even know man... Ok back to the plot. Then Lee Joon threatened the couple with a gun. He fired. The bullet curved around (he purposely did that while defying the law of physics at the process) and hit him in the neck. Why do you shoot yourself? I don't get it. You appeared randomly in the couple's life, threatened them and killed yourself in front of them because you don't get the girl. That's pretty messed up if you ask me! 

So he died. OH! Not before giving his friend two plane tickets. LOL WTF HAPPENED? My conclusion is that he wanted to go on a trip with the girl. (That's probably what he was doing after leaving the girl in Thunder's care... to go buy plane tickets) But since he is dying (after shooting himself... why?), he gave the tickets to Thunder so that he can go with the girl in his place. Then bleuh... he died. Everyone is sad. Ok I get it that Thunder is sad but WHY are you sad, girl? You barely know the guy! And he just pointed a gun at you! Why? WHYYYYY?

Anyway, if you are a MBLAQ fan, you will notice how many times there are "Angst Lee Joon" in many of their videos. He must really love to get tortured... emotionally. That's ... kinky. LOL.

Zetsuen No Tempest Review

Zetsuen no Tempest is a new anime that I fell in love with. The art is magnificent. I love the solemn atmosphere and intriguing characters. The main protagonists are by no mean gentleman. As you can see from this gif (above) and screenshot (below), Mahiro (blond) kicked a woman in the face. That gotta hurts. 

Now, allow me to review Zetsuen no Tempest and introduce you to an anime you might not have considered before. 
On his very first real appearance in the anime, this is how it happens... Mahiro kicked Evangeline in the face. He had teleported from somewhere else to save Yoshino from being attacked by Eva. The story then gets interesting when Eva asked Mahiro if he had met a mage... so at first we are like "huuuh? There's magic in this anime?" LOLOLOL

Mahiro (blond): Lone-wolf, cold, fighter, handsome and rich bad boy.
Yoshino: Don't be fooled by his innocent charm. He can calmly aim a gun at you (happened in the anime)

The story begins with Mahiro being missing for 3 months after the death of his sister Aika (who is secretly Yoshino's girlfriend). Don't worry, I am not spoiling. You will know these fact straight out of episode 1. So Mahiro, angered by the murder of his sister, came across a wooden voodoo doll on the beach. That voodoo doll is sent by a stranded witch (3rd protagonist) who wished to stop a disaster. The two characters then formed a contract. Mahiro would try to stop the disaster (quite an interesting story line) which involved this disease that turns people into iron. On the other hand, the witch will help Mahiro find the murderer of his sister Aika. 

Along the way, Mahiro met up with Yoshino (his 'con-artist' best friend) who was being attacked by Eva the woman with the gun above) while Yoshino was paying his respect to Aika's tombstone. 

Cute Yoshino and Mahiro moment. Yoshino is like a mom taking care of her naughty son... hehe... naughty... *wink* maybe wife... seriously, what's with those hairpins. I can't help getting distracted the whole anime. I kept going... 'ah I love his hair... and where can I buy those hairpins?!'

A sad Yoshino quoting Hamlet.
Forty thousand brothers could not, with all their quantity of love, make up my sum.
Until now I have no idea what he means. He was probably mourning the death of Aika...
This is the disaster he are supposed to stop. This is a fruit that an evil sorcerer clan is trying to plant around the world. This symptom of the fruit causes people (without magic protection) to turn into stone. No only must the boys stop the disaster, they also must fight the evil sorcerers. That's when the anime is awesssoooome. The fight scenes are really beautiful to watch with lots of pretty blue lights (as they teleport here and there). Seriously, you have to trust me that the fight is damn awesome.

Now for the awkward moments in the anime. READY?
I can tell you in advance that the anime has quite a few fanservices. I swear.  So time to feel awkward!

Mahiro wiping a boo boo. It's their first conversation after 3 months of separation. When Mahiro did that, I was like... do best friends do that? I certainly don't do that with my female friends! Let alone 2 young men! Trololol! AWKWARD! NEXT!
NAKED MAHIRO! Well... *Cough* that was unexpected. Anyhow this happens in episode 4, after everyone turned into metal, Mahiro and Yoshino broke into someone's house to rest. It's not like the owners will get angry since they are... metallized. 

Seriously, this is fanservice at its best (for young women). The camera went from knees up to head. I was like (O.o)'''
For yaoi fangirls, this is the moment.
Too bad Mahiro rejects Yoshino. Kidding, Yoshino had randomly barged in bathroom and saw Mahiro naked. The reason Yoshino was surprised was that he had just looked away from Mahiro for a second and when he turned around.... well he got flashed or mooned... whatever you call it.

Sulking adorably for not able to join Mahiro in bath... Mahiro went to cook instead. Such a good wifey! I am sooo teasing Yoshino for being a wife until the day he stops wearing those hairpins! 
My Feels for these boys!

Shabu Shabu BBQ Korean Restaurant

I had passed by this Korean restaurant everyday and saw a lot of people dining in there so I decided to give it a try. The interior decors is quite superb and neat. The place itself is quite spacious and the seats are comfy. The food is also huge in portion. The waitress was very friendly and smiley. Overall experience is pretty good. Now let see what we ate!
As you can see, the atmosphere is splendid. I went there during lunch so I missed out this beautiful sunset. The lighting was nice too during the early afternoon so no big lost! Ah... again just by looking at this place, I feel all hungry again. Hehe. Another cool thing about Shabu Shabu Korean BBQ is the golf stimulation. There is a section in the nice corner of the restaurant with a TV and a golf set (game). I didn't exactly have the chance to see it properly but I thought it was quite a cute idea to include the golf stimulation.
Disclaimer: The three top photos are taken from Shabu Shabu's official website.
So we ordered 3 BBQ dishes (1 Samgeopsal & 2 Bulgogi) @12.95 each and a short rib soup with some transparent noodles called Galbitang ($11.95). They gave us plenty of sidedishes + 4 rice (4 people). I love the tea they serve. Very delicious. Fragrance but not too strong. Just perfect.

You can see the sidedishes and the plate of 2 Bulgogi combined. The sidedishes have some potatoes, kimchi, seaweed (very yummy) 
That is the plate of 2 orders of Bulgogi combined. So it is around $25.90. The portion is huuuge. My dad and I nearly stuffed ourselves to finish it. Don't let the view deceives you. Let your stomach decide once you actually finish the whole plate. By far, it is very worthy compare to other Korean restaurants I had been too. I went to this shabby looking Korean restaurant in Chinatown once. The food is good but the portion is not sufficient. We probably ordered the dish twice and were nowhere near as full as we did with Shabu Shabu. 

This is the Galbitang. It's not very big but it's just for the taste. :) We ordered it for my little brother so it's good enough for a little fellow. 
3 beautiful strips of Samgeoupsal (pork belly). Aren't they beautiful? 

Well, this is what the end product looks like. You see a bit of Samgeoupsal on the top and a bunch of sizzling Bulgogi. I took this shot so that you can see how wonderful those sizzling bubbles are. The smell is incredibly delicious. The low flame that keeps everything hot and fresh. I would definitely return there again! 

Great news is that while doing research for this blog entry, I went to their website and saw they have free coupon to giveaway. (I wish I saw it earlier... *sulk*) Well, good for you readers! To make your life easy, I embedded the official website link in the picture so just click on the picture and off you go! Enjoy!
