In The Spotlight – 1UP’s The Grind [Blog]


I’d like to introduce in this section a site that I recently discovered and now love. It’s actually been up and running for a while now but I only managed to stumble upon it recently through a friend’s recommendation. The blog I’m referring to is 1UP’s very own RPG blog, The Grind.

After finding the blog, I’ve been constantly referring to it back and forth lately, since it is updated pretty often, with many great entries that has very interesting content. The range between the type of RPGs being discussed is also sure to help readers be more informed on genres they aren’t familiar with. This has certainly been the case for me, since after reading a couple of their entries, I’ve been really tempted to have a go at strategy RPG games, possibly making a start on Valkyria Chronicles, since it seems to be a very innovative title that breaks the usual conventions of the genre. It also helped that the game received glowing reviews from damn near every gaming publication and site out there, so the critical acclaim is already present. Not to mention the beautiful cell-shaded graphics……

Naruto ch. 436

1「-ナルト-」Chapter 436: Peace

Read Online at: ONEMANGA

Summary: Picking up from last week, Inoichi has suddenly figured out where the real Pain might be hiding this whole time. He points out that during his investigation of Jiraiya’s captives, he found out that the Amagakure Ninjas had been transporting corpses to the highest tower in the village. Through his knowledge and experience of chakra channeling, he knows that in order for a ninja to transmit chakra at it’s best, it’s ideal for them to be as close to the recipient as possible. It’s also best if they were taking cover at higher grounds. There were rumors that Pain had been residing at that tall tower in Amagakure, so it is safe to assume that the real Pain would be channeling his chakra somewhere in or around Konoha, at the tallest point. With this new info, Inoichi, along with Shikamaru, Shikaku, Ino and Shiho, set off to find Pain in the surrounding area.

Karin Koizumi Coloring [WIP]


Can’t believe it’s been about 2+ weeks since my last blog post, it’s been quite a while. Been extremely busy in the real world lately, the university trimester is starting on the 2nd of March so I’ve been setting things up left and right so that I can start the year in peace. Buying things to bring back to the apartment, as well as starting to pack sure is tiring, as well as sorting out things to bring and leave at home. I’ve bought a lot of things in the past 4 months so  taking things back can be quite difficult, as I now have a new fender strat guitar to bring back as well, along with it’s behemoth of a case. So yea, that’s the update on my life lately. Moving back up on Sunday so I might not post a new entry until at least Wednesday, when I will hopefully get my internet connection up and running at the apartment.

Now enough about that, there are some positive things that have happened recently. I’ve got my tablet back so I can finally get back to colouring and submitting artwork on DA!!! It’s been at least 13 months since I last touched a tablet, let alone color something so I have been quite anxious to see how far my skills have deteriorated. That’s why I picked a nice cover from my fav manga, Eyeshield 21, and went off on a piece. I chose Karin cos she has got to be one of the hottest and sweetest female characters I have seen recently. The lack of coloured pieces and fanarts for her is damn appalling so I thought I should try to contribute more to her cause.

Here’s the Work-In-Progress I have at the moment. Keep in mind that I haven’t colored in a long while so yea, there might be some oddities here and there 😛

#314 Summary: After Sena’s touchdown run which ended the last chapter, everything is flowing very smoothly for Japan. They are virtually unstoppable, as the Militaria soon find out. Gomery boasts that offense is the key point of Militaria’s game, and that they were going to win the game thanks to his superior build and speed. Hearing Gomery’s stats, Japan realizes that he is no match for the team, as he is still vastly inferior to their own aces. Showing them the speed of Shin and the power of Gaou in defense, Militaria soon realize that even with their Sergeant running on offense, they were still incapable of defeating Japan.
