SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN - BUT WITH CATS! 「ニャンコ兵団」
[PlayStore] | [AppStore]
I NEED TO TELL YOU ABOUT SOMETHING.
somebody else has probably done so before but I don’t follow tags so idk and I’ve discovered this by myself and haven’t read about it yet so
There’s this app game. It’s basically SnK with cats that hunt a lady carrying a basket of fish. You’re a main cat (here: Eren, Sasha) and gather your sidekick cats (here: Mikasa, Armin) as “extra lives.” You just need to jump whenever there’s an obstacle in your way (e.g. a dog, a nest of wasps, etc.) and collect stars to gather points. If all your cats hit an obstacle, the game is over and the distance you made + the stars you collected are your score.
Sometimes, there will be a fish lying on the ground. Collect three fishies and you can turn into titan-cat (Eren) or really freaking hungry bread-hunting cat (Sasha) what basically makes you invulnerable and the lady run like there’s no tomorrow.
If you gather enough points, you unlock more main cats. I’m a goddamn hopeless noob so I’ve only unlocked Sasha (you start with Eren), but you can also unlock Armin, Mikasa and Rivaille. And there’s a weird-looking Giant Titan cat soon to be implemented, too.
The game is in Japanese but you really just have to tap to jump and it’s super fucking easy. If you can read katakana, you have absolutely no problem. If you can’t, I imagine you’re smart enough anyway. I believe in you. It’s not that hard. Really.
/edit: did I forget to mention it’s free
I will surely not forget my episodes with you.
There’s a whole comic devoted to that. It was an amazing inspiration before I played Loki for the first time. The conceit is that Loki is actually on the throne, he gets everything he wants, Thor is defeated and he isn’t happy. In fact, he needs Thor to define him. He needs the opposition. Which is quite an interesting way to look at life. Freedom is scarier than constraint. Constraint gives you a reason, it gives you resistance. It gives you tension, it gives you something to fight. Freedom dares you with a question, what are you going to do? I don’t think Loki has any idea.
Tom Hiddleston, referring to Blood Brothers when asked, "Is it difficult to play someone who doesn’t have an end goal in sight? And could his goal be the throne of Asgard? Because I don’t think he would be happy once he got it." (x)

I’m okay with the dot/line thing but the thing under it come on, you can’t tell me that’s the same grapheme, nihongo what the fuck is wrong with those fonts of yours?
I can’t anymore I swear I’m so done already with Japanese Studies atm. I’ve been at some kind of low point for weeks now, it feels like I can’t get a single easy thing right and most of the things I need to do for uni are just tiresome atm and I do them anyway, even more than I should, because I want to do a good job. and all of that at the worst possible time - I’m preparing for my application for studying abroad, and need to invest a lot of work and time into that. which I just. don’t. want. atm.
I just want to curl up in bed and play Pokémon and read books and eat lots of chocolate, is that such a bad thing?
I haven’t really been on tumblr for more than a week now (too much homework, too little time) but this I absolutely have to post now.
Last week, something happened that reinforced my belief in fortunate coincidences. Since last week, we have a tutorial offered by a native speaker, and so we had to introduce ourselves again. When I was asked why I’m studying Japanese Studies, I said that my interest for Japanese first began when I was, like, 11 years old and I started reading manga. The tutor asked me what my favourite manga were, and socially awkward as I am I couldn’t fucking remember my own favourite manga, not a single one except for Meitantei Conan and Yami no Matsuei and although I would never have said I like Yami no Matsuei in front of normal people
(THEY GOOGLED IT IN FRONT OF ME. THEY ALSO GOOGLED “THOR” BEFORE BECAUSE I SAID I LIKED TOM HIDDLESTON AND FOUND SLASH FANART ON GOOGLE AND IT WAS SO FREAKING AWKWARD SO DON’T JUDGE ME FOR NOT WANTING TO MENTION YAMI NO MATSUEI IN FRONT OF STRANGERS AS MY FAVOURITE MANGA), but well yes I said it anyway because as I said before, I didn’t fucking remember any other manga because I was too nervous and I didn’t want to look even more stupid at that time.
After the lesson, a girl came to me asking whether I was the one who said I liked Yami no Matsuei. She said while she doesn’t care for the series, she has a volume of the manga in Japanese at home and really doesn’t know what to do with it. She couldn’t even remember which volume it was. So I told her I’d be very glad to get a Japanese version of any volume of this series, and this Monday she returned with this precious jewel.
It’s motherfucking volume 12 of Yami no Matsuei. In perfect condition.
