Upcoming Plans

Well hi there! It’s been a while since I’ve made a post here, huh? Well, that’s my fault, entirely, because I’ve been spending my free time doing other things, instead of working on this blog, sadly.

But, once this week, finals week, is over, I’ll have about three weeks of nothing but work before my summer classes begin. I’ll only be working mornings until June, so when I get home each day through May, I’ll for sure be working on getting posts prepared and put together! 🙂

So, let me give an idea of what I’m planning to do.

I’m definitely planning to go back to my manga reviews. I want to go back and forth between all the series I own and have been reading, especially so I can finish them (I’ve read Naruto twice already, and I want to finish Assassination Classroom and Ouran High School Host Club) and do other things than JUST manga reviews, because I feel like I do that more than most things (apart from a few subscription boxes).

I do have a bunch of anime I want to review as well, but I may start doing that as a COMPLETE series/season, instead of one episode at a time. That takes a lot of time to prepare, and I don’t have enough space on here to pictures for every single anime episode that I want to review. So, my plan for this? I’m going attempt to watch several anime series over the summer(mostly short ones and I HAVE to finish Naruto Shippuden, especially since Boruto started and I’m enjoying watching it weekly), and then I will do overall reviews (if I own the whole series, I’ll show pictures of the box sets or single DVD [like for movies]). I think this will definitely work better than doing one episode at a time. (I changed my mom about doing anime reviews on Blogger. I’ll be continuing, finishing, and starting reviews here again.)

I do plan to start bringing coloring pages back to this blog, but moving cross stitching to my Blogger account (go here if you’d like to follow). I think that will be a lot easier for me, and I won’t need to worry about purchasing a plan on here for more space (not right now, anyway!) Product reviews, such as Amazon orders and the like, will be on Blogger as well. I have an Amazon order with several items on the way right now, and I will post that to BOTH blogs, with a link to Blogger again.

I’m not going to have a May Umai Crate. I received an email from JapanCrate, however, that they had applied a $5 credit to my account for a Premium JapanCrate, which made it the same price as an Umai Crate, and I was really wanting a crate of snacks instead of more ramen (i still have SEVERAL from my March crate). So once that gets here, I’ll be giving an overview of the whole crate, and hopefully making posts for each snack.

So, yeah. That’s the plan at the moment. I did have Hot Cash with Hot Topic, but I don’t think I’m going to do a post on it, sorry. I’ll have a post later this week or sometime next week about a couple of anime orders I made and a NatureBox order, so, please look forward to that!

I’m excited to be coming back to reviews! 🙂


I have another blog!!

Hello all!! After some recent life changes, I’ve decided to revive my old Blogger/BlogSpot account! I started this WAY back in 2011, and didn’t make many posts on it, and they didn’t make much sense to me. So, I deleted them, haha!

I’ve completely wiped the blog and restarted it, minus the lovely background template you’ll see there! I’ve decided that my WordPress will be for manga, taste tests, and coloring books/pages, while the Blogger will be for anime, video games, and cross-stitching! This will help me save image space I think, having two blogs like this. I’ll still probably upgrade my WordPress to the $2.99 a month plan for that extra 3GB of image space, but, right now, this will work!

If you’d like to drop a follow, this is the link: Christian Otaku Reviews BlogSpot! Do not feel obligated to follow, it’s totally fine if you don’t! This is just a random thing I decided to do after thinking about my old blog. 🙂

Pokemon Sun and Moon


I apologize for this month not working out, but I have been very busy and just finished a weekend seminar for a leadership group I’m in. I wish I could have gotten all the coloring pages done, but man, classes and homework just hit me in the face.

But, apart from that, Pokemon Sun and Moon have officially been released in the US and several other countries (I’m sorry for you Europe. :[), and I picked up my copies yesterday afternoon (I bought the Rowlet plush on my birthday, review next month!)

So, I wanted to ask: Would you all like to see formal review in December once I complete both games? (One will be a personal playthrough, and the other will be used for competitive battles when I’m in streams on Twitch) I fully intend to finish, at least, Moon this week during my Thanksgiving break, and to work on Sun for battles.

I’d love to give you all a full, complete review, WITH NO SPOILERS. I have avoided all story line spoilers that I could (stupid youtube didn’t take down vids from illegal copies, and i ended up with a few small snippets on my home feed :/), so, I know barely anything apart from what the Pokemon Company has shown us in videos.

I’m excited to start my seventh Pokemon Generation journey to the Alola region, obviously starting for the first time with Rowlet, the cute little grass owl. 😉

So please let me know, and I’ll try to get a nice review put together once I complete my classes for this semester. 🙂

No Manga Mondays Post This Week

My apologies, but there will not be a manga summary and review this week. I have not felt well, been very busy, just celebrated my birthday, and have a lot of homework that I am working on.

I plan to have a new post next week, so please, enjoy the coloring pages that will be going up this week.

Manga will be back soon, I promise.

October through December Posting Plan

Hello dear readers! Apologies for posts being short and, to me, a bit odd this month, but things are going to change, as I am working on planning out my days better to have time to do everything that I need to! Please note that the final week of September will have only two posts, an Artful Tuesday and Tasty Thursday post, as I have big plans for next month through December, and must prepare.

As for October, I plan to have, only on Saturdays and Sundays, blind box and bag openings at last! I have opened enough and gotten the pictures to where I can do eight posts on them, and I want to make that happen in October! Perhaps by November I’ll have gotten more and will be able to do so again! If I do, I’d like to do it in December as well.

I am, definitely, bringing back Manga Mondays next month! October 3rd will see the return of this weekly series, starting with Naruto volume 8, and continuing from there. I would love to be able to go back and forth between Naruto and the many other, much shorter, series I have and read. I’m going to try that, to see if I can get myself reading more again and posting more than just Naruto and Assassination Classroom reviews.

I also want to do a couple of actual novel reviews, probably on Sundays, starting in November. I have several novels and series I’m trying to get through, but I may just focus on various Japanese light novels (Naruto, The Devil is a Part Timer, No Game No Life, etc.)

Minecraft Mondays will be taking a small break, because of this. I simply do not have the time at the moment to sit for hours on end building in Creative mode, but I would like to start setting time aside on Sundays to work on different projects in Minecraft and begin posting them again as well. I anticipate a November return of Minecraft Mondays.

As for anime, I fully intend to bring that back as well, but I am not sure when. I want to finish the first season of Assassination Classroom and get the reviews for those episodes done, then move to the second season and watch some other series. I believe I will begin setting time aside at night to watch one episode from several series I’ve been DYING to try, and then I will write and post a review for Watchful Wednesdays again, because I really want to bring that back. I plan to begin Watchful Wednesdays again in mid to late November, probably around Thanksgiving.

Coloring pages are going to return as well, probably in November and be posted only on Fridays or Saturdays. It takes me a while sometimes to get through a coloring page, but I want to start working on them slowly but surely. I want to get a lot done in advance so I don’t have to rush through and end up hating a page I’ve colored. I plan to begin posting coloring pages again on November 4, which also happens to be my birthday.

Tasty Thursdays is going to stay, it just may not be weekly once again. Currently I’m just buying the same snacks and such over and over again, unless I go somewhere like Sprouts where I want to try new things. Graze has sent me another half off box, and that will be posted on 29th of September, so I’m hoping they’ll send me another half off offer in October and we can keep that as a once a month. NatureBox for September will be up this Thursday, the 22nd, at 12:30 CST. Currently the plan is for that to be the last one, but I may have to purchase a box in October because I found some snacks I really, really love. (If I do purchase a box in October, it will be a 3 snack box, unless someone uses my referral link again.)

Puzzling Saturdays will return in December, at my current plan. I like to work on puzzles during school breaks, and December would be the best time for me to do so. Therefore, I will be posting, hopefully, one puzzle weekly in December. I don’t know if Puzzling Saturdays will continue to be weekly after December, but I would like to hope so.

The last thing I want to discuss is product reviews. I’ve been trying for a long time to review some products I purchase and love, but I just haven’t been able to. I made a Hot Topic order last month and meant to review the clothes I purchased, but I never did. I just made another order with them, thanks to Hot Cash, and I fully intend to give a review on the items I purchased this time, all separate because of several reasons. I am absolutely going to pre-order Pokemon Sun and Moon, and, at the very least, review the packaging and designs soon after the games release. As I will be away on campus for 9 hours the day they release, and then another 8-9 the next day, I will be unable to the play the games until the 19th. When I do finally open them, I will be taking pictures and jotting down my thoughts on the packaging, and I plan to do a small review on the games themselves once I’ve completed Moon (I am going to be playing Moon while my sister will be borrowing my 2DS to play Sun.)

I’m honestly beyond excited for the rest of this year. I can’t wait to get the blog going at full force again, and hope to keep up the pace in 2017. Thank you for reading, and I’ll see you soon!

A Note Regarding August through December

Hello readers!

I first want to say thank you to everyone that has been keeping with this blog, even when I have failed to update or respond to comments. I’m very busy with work and fall classes are about to begin again, and I haven’t had much time to do all the posts that I want to, and to respond to comments.

Next, I want to give an idea of what I hope will be happening the next few months as fall classes begin and I get even busier with all my classes. I’m an Operations and Supply Chain Management major, and I have to take accounting and math classes, and I’m not very good at math to be honest. I’ll be taking Accounting I and Business Calculus this fall, and I’m very nervous about them because I’m not a fan of math on top of not being very good at it. But I’m going to try my best, and there’s also tutoring on campus, so I should be ok.

Along with that, I’m also working throughout the week, and I’m also a member of a leadership group on campus and will be paired up with a mentor, and go on two over night weekend retreats this fall (one will be exactly a week before Pokemon Sun and Moon are released, and yes, I plan to purchase and review them)!

Because of all this, I don’t know how I’m going to have the time to update the blog, because I’m determined (Undertale ftw) to study my butt off and do well this semester, and I’m trying to go into business calculus with an open mind and not be afraid of it, because I really want to pass and show I can do this without many problems. But, even with all the studying I plan to do, I will be trying to update as often as I can, but there may be times when I can’t, and I apologize in advance for that.

With that, I plan this week to prepare and schedule as many posts as I can. I’m only working two days this week so I should have the time to get as many posts together as I can. We should have at least two up this week, a Graze box and a coloring page, and I might try to get a screenshot or two from my Minecraft Creative world for a post as well. So if you see a Minecraft post after this one, I got the screenshots done.

Manga I hope to have back on here soon, as well as the daily sticker/deco diary (I need to get more stickers lol). I’m also fully intending to begin posting Monday through Friday Bento box lunches that I pack and take to class and work with me. I’ll be on campus every day and I want to be eating healthy and taking a bento with me will help with that, because I won’t be so tempted to go to the food court to buy something.

So that’s what I wanted to say. I hope to have posts throughout the semester, but please understand if I don’t, that it’s because of class and work.

Thank you guys so much for reading and following and I’ll have posts ready soon! 🙂

(And a special thank you to the person that used my NatureBox referral link. I’ll be getting another box thanks to you! :])

Note about posts beginning again this week

Posts are absolutely coming back this week, but I’ve been very busy and not in the mindset to read manga right now.

Because of that, Manga Mondays is being pushed to the side until I get in the right mindset to read manga again. Taking it’s place, for now, is Minecraft Mondays. I recently purchased Minecraft and became obsessed instantly. I absolutely love the game, and will be posting one or twice a week about my personal Survival world or my Creative world.

I can, at some point, share the world seeds I’ve used and then any one that wants to play in the same worlds that I have will be able to do as well! 🙂

With that, Minecraft Mondays will begin tomorrow with some screenshots from my Creative world, and I will definitely be posting about my YumeTwins box this week, and NatureBox will be next week! 🙂

Posts WILL Return on August 1

I promise you guys, posts will return on August 1st. I’m going to use the next two weeks to prepare and schedule posts, so I can stay ahead and get everything I need to ready for my return.

I’m really sorry it’s been so long since I posted. I was so busy last month with my four week class, and this month I’ve just been busy with work and life in general.

Normal posting will resume with Manga Mondays with the seventh volume of Assassination Classroom. There will be a few taste testing posts, and, at least in August, weekly blind bag and box openings will be reviewed and posted as well. I should have a quick little product review of a Yokai Watch figure as well.

Before then, I plan to do a post this week about my NatureBox I received at the end of last month, so look for that. I should have the second one next week as well.

See you guys soon!

Scarce Posts this Week, Sadly

I’m sorry to say posts will be very scarce this week. :/ 
I have been very busy with work and my four week summer class that I have had little to no time to work on posts.
I very much hope illtbe able to get posts back to daily very soon, but I don’t know when that will happen.
Again I apologize for this, and I hope to be back sooner than soon.

Something New Comes This Way!!

Starting next Monday night, I will be posting a deco/sticker diary every day! Each post will be a picture a little blurb about my day and what the design of my daily diary is to represent, and I can’t wait to get started!

I watch a YouTuber who does a deco/sticker diary everyday and posts a video about it on Fridays, and I was so inspired that I finally was able to buy a diary and some stickers that will work with my own!

All pictures will be posted to Instagram and Twitter as well, but with less of an explanation because of character limits, and other reasons.

If you’d like to join me, these are the items I purchased in order to do this (no affiliate links):

Molang Diary (comes in several colors, just find the one you like): http://www.amazon.com/Zerowin-Planner-Notepad-Notebook-Meeting/dp/B015B4UL3A?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=A3SPC7L7YNQIWI

I bought this in pink because it’s my second favorite color, and there were no green ones. This will begin Monday instead of Sunday because the weeks in the diary start on Mondays.

Ponybrown stickers: http://www.amazon.com/Marrywindix-Decorative-Scrapbooking-Sticker-Adhesive/dp/B00XJFHFEC?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00

Bic Bu3 pens: http://www.amazon.com/Corporation-BU3AP51-ASSORTD-Retractable-Assorted-Colors/dp/B00EQDIZ1I/ref=sr_1_13?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1464656477&sr=1-13&keywords=bic+bu3+retractable+ballpoint+pens

(My set did not include black because I purchases these from my local Dollar Genereal)

I will also be using my Sakura Gelly Roll gel pens for this as well, mainly the Stardust ones!

I hope you guys will like this, and will follow along with me! 🙂
