Ghost Logic Summary from
Yumeko is a girl obsessed with the occult. Her best friend, Satoru, is a skeptic. But one day Satoru dies and comes back as a ghost that only Yumeko can see.

What I Think About It:

Do you believe in ghosts? I DO! Well, I have to believe it because I did saw one in our school and my grandma flickered our lights just to get my attention to the date. Anyways, this manga is nice and ironic. I say its nice because the friendship between Yumeko and Satoru is  so strong that even death can’t separate them. And its ironic because Satoru who is afraid of ghosts became one himself. Overall, this one-shot is light and its a good read. I want a sequel though.

Random Topic #1: Spoilers!

26 Jul

I am an avid reader of reviews. From manga/manhwa reviews, anime reviews to movie reviews, to book reviews, you name it. I also wrote reviews from time to time too!  And of course there are times where instead of being happy in reading those, you get the sudden impulse of sulking.

I was able to read an article on the internet about tips on doing reviews. And it struck me that I fail in doing those tips. Especially regarding spoilers. 

Spoilers can either be good or bad. Good in a sense that instead of wasting your time, money and effort in getting a copy of it, you can it brush it off and move on with your life. 😀 But seriously speaking,  I don’t mind reading spoilers sometimes. I usually don’t mind reading spoilers about anime/s I’m watching because, for me, its like a heads-up for what’s to come. I’m still going to watch it nonetheless but at least I know that my favorite character might die in this episode.

I really hate spoilers especially in movies. Here’s a concrete example: I was watching this movie which I planned to watch few days ago. I really love this movie since I have heard good comments on it. So here I was, my eyes glued in TV screen as I watch the movie then POPS comes along my brother. My brother already watched this movie; heck! he owns the copy I’m using. Seeing the movie I’m watching, he begins to tell me about what’s going to happen next and so on and so on. It’s like you’re in chapter 1 and then you’re forced to watch chapter 5! Can you imagine how I feel? I felt like I’m going HULK mode for all I care. I also felt the same when I read a review on a manga which instead of writing a review, the author made some-what a summary.  A review is not the same as a summary!!! Geez… (Though I admit I unconsciously do this sometimes.)

Spoilers and I are like ‘frenemies’. Sometimes we get along so fine and be on our own little world but sometimes I do loathe them.  I know others might not feel the same, so how do we fix this? And I shall answer.

Authors should be diligent in putting warnings on their work. A simple ‘May contain spoilers’ can make a huge difference. That line is either a GO signal or a STOP signal. You, the reader, can be the judge.

And that’s what I plan to do in my future reviews. Hopefully, other authors would do the same and the readers would be happier in reading their reviews.

Good day everyone! Ja ne!
