Here's a rundown of how it all started and what happens next in this first of it's kind - the very first Pinoy Noontime Comedy-Infused Live Teleserye "Kalye Serye" on national television.

List of Anime and Shows Similar to Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin)

With the phenomenal success of Japanese manga turned anime Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin, Advancement of the Giants), there came along many other anime and shows that are following the dystopian, post-apocalyptic plot formula of AoT/SnK. Because of that, I have compiled a List of Anime and Shows Similar to Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) that I have watched. This also includes older shows that have a coincidentally similar plot.

It's been my life-long dream to order stuff online (although I apparently already did with Akiko Shikata albums like Turaida and Laylania DVD), these stuff are different - they're from two of my biggest fandoms: Don't Hug Me I'm Scared and Yu-Gi-Oh! 

Stuff that came in the mail this past month included the following:

Pluto Flyby 2015: Astronomy has Reached "New Horizons"

Have you heard the latest news on the Pluto Flyby this July 14, 2015? Looks like the spacecraft New Horizons has finally reached its destination, the dwarf planet Pluto!

This is going to be really exciting not only because I'm totally interested with astronomy and extra-terrestrial stuff, but also because we've never seen Pluto this up-close before...

Alamat: Philippine Folk Tales into Modern Pinoy Animation

Today, I chanced upon yet another very awesome GMA-7 series (seriously, GMA has awesome stuff when it comes to unique content, a.k.a. My Husband's Lover). Titled "Alamat", it's a modern retelling of Pinoy folk tales into crafty and colorful original Filipino animation. Here's my review of the first episode, titled "Alamat ng Bayabas" (Legend of the Guava Fruit).

The Rise and Fall of Magnifico: Jiro Manio's Story

Jiro Manio in Magnifico (left) and in NAIA (right).

If you haven't heard yet on the news, the boy better known for his Santino-esque role in the hit 90s Filipino film, "Magnifico", Jiro Katakura a.k.a. Jiro Manio, was found randomly roaming around the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) around June 30, 2015.

A lot of fans' and former fans' hearts were torn to pieces to see the seemingly-innocent child actor who lived his life of prestigious Filipino cinema roles and even took the Gawad Urian award, is now a lost sheep trying to find his way back home.
