Aruvi: A movie too real

Aruvi. I’m not sure how to put in words. Movies generally are easy to categorise like good, bad, entertainer and those that suck. Somehow Aruvi was beyond any description. I had a hard time writing a review for this movie. I love movies but I’m not the type to watch one randomly. I read reviews…

A Waifu and A Wife, for the 2D and 3D world

I love Joichirou Saiba, the genius Chef from the manga Shokugeki no Soma and father of the title character Soma. This guy rarely makes an appearance in the story.

Random musings on a rainy day
