So I thought it appropriate to start a blog. I think it'd be easier than creating posts at random and it'd better allow me to collect my mind's ramblings.
I was a blogger for a little while and maintained one to keep up with daily life, minimalism/essentialism, art, film and other random subjects inbetween. Thankfully, I'm not really going to write about any of that here. I'll probably post about whatever's big on my twitter feed or look to crowdsource info on animes, movies.
That said, this post is going to stay short. I'll write more when my brain has, well, more to regurgitate.
I suppose I should hang my head in shame for how little I post here on this forum, but I'm trying to be active when I can be. I know said forum has a discord.. but alas, that link is very broken.
Yesterday was Christmas! And I would like to wish every one a Merry Christmas! And Happy Holidays too!
Before Christmas, everything including work and some personal issues have been weighing me down, but a short Christmas break has been great! I took some time off the things that would make me feel stressed or uneasy. Since the virus here is Melbourne has settled down, and we don't have any local cases anymore, I've been spending some time with my friends. We also celebrated Christmas early, and we will probably meet up again soon.
This year has honestly been great for me. I got to spend everyday at home, without having to get outside. No one I knew personally got the virus, so it was a relief for me. I got more time to catch up with the anime I dropped, and I also got into a new fandom which is not my favourite fandom/series. You can try guess what it is judging on some of my past posts on this website 😛
What about everyone? Have this year been great to you? Did you have plans for Christmas? Any future plans?

There is always one anime that really stands out to you, that really makes a difference to you. There's always one show that you want everybody to watch and love just as much as you do (if not more). That show for me is Steins;Gate.
I remember a few years ago, when i first watched it i was mesmerized by the show. It dragged me in and completely hooked me from episode 1.
Since then, I have watched this show countless and countless of times, it never losing its appeal. It still makes me want to cry, gives me goosebumps, and puts me on the edge of my seat. I catch new things I missed in previous watchings almost every time I rewatch it.
I feel that Steins;Gate is so underappreciated and not nearly as popular as it should be. There must've been so much thought and time put into creating such a complete masterpiece. It really delves deep into topics not usually presented in anime and takes it above and beyond what I would have expected.
Steins;Gate is originally a visual novel game that was later adapted into an anime. I didn't play the actual visual novel till years later after I had already rewatched the show a few times. The visual novel, obviously, is much more complex and explains things in a much deeper way.
OKAY, so, you are all probably wondering.. "What is it even about Rini?" Well, don't worry! I will explain that now!!
Steins;Gate takes place in Akihabara, Japan following the story of main character Okabe Rintaro (whom likes to be called "Hououin Kyouma!"). Okabe is a self proclaimed 'mad scientist' who runs his own lab with two friends Mayuri and Daru. There he creates tons of mostly useless experiments. One day, however, he accidentally steps into territory that should not be stepped in. He accidentally creates a time machine. Given the opportunity to stop research or continue, he continues.
This glorious anime sheds light as to what the horrors of time travel would be and what it could lead to. It makes use of the Butterfly Effect, separate world lines, etc. As you follow Okabe through this intense story-line, you watch as he descends into TRUE madness (not his self proclaimed madness). I cannot stress enough how incredible of a show this is. It can be a tad slow at the start, but it really sets off around episode 12 or so and it's nonstop from that point on.
I want more people to give this show the chance it deserves, as its just entirely underrated. will put links below for more info
