Japanese Harry Potter Books!!!

Hi Steffi, So my husband is the absolute best and got me the most perfect present for our 2 year anniversary. He got me a complete set of Japanese Harry Potter Books!! My collection just leveled up!

Books 4-7 were split into two books each and each got their own cover art.

I can’t wait to inspect every inch of them. I’ve looked through a few of them and found there’s chapter art! These are a couple of my favorites:

The chapters are listed in English at the top of the page, but everything else is in Kanji. It’s interesting to see how they translate what I assume is yelling or newspaper text; some of the text I came across was bolded and in a bigger font size with teeny tiny font next to it. I really want to learn Japanese!

I even found some inserts in a couple of the books. One of them looks like an advertisement for the rest of the series, another looks like a visual guide to better explain things that probably don’t translate well? There’s drawings of Quidditch and gnome tossing and Dobby with a sock.

It’s safe to assume that gifting me Harry Potter books will always make me extremely happy 😀

Tsum Tsum Tuesday!

Hi Steffi it’s Tsum Tsum Tuesday!

Next month’s tsums have been announced! I cannot wait to see this movie, look at the cute!

There’s also a #tsumtsumsunday tag on instagram that I think we should take part in.

I got Grayson and his friend to start playing the game and we’ve all been doing really well since we send each other so many hearts and we play constantly. Once we all bought a premium tsum, earning coins got easier and we each buy one every few days or so. Anna is still my go to because she earns mad coins, but I’m loving all the different abilities the premiums have. White Rabbit stops time, Perry takes out big chunks of tsums, Marie makes 3 bubbles appear, and Sebastian & Bambi make a random number of tsums disappear but they have their own cool animations.

I completed my first bingo card and got the second one. It’s way harder! Once it’s completed you get an Oswald tsum! The missions are so random though — get so many points with a tsum with floppy ears, use a blue tsum to get such and such score, use a time-stopping ability so many times. It’s going to take a while but I want that Oswald!

Here’s a hack we figured out while playing: If you are just about to activate your tsum’s special ability and you’ve just connected a bunch of them, tap the tsum as soon as it fills up (while the long chain is being counted) and the remaining tsums will count towards the next ability!

If anyone wants to friend me, add @acheeringcharm on the Line app!

Steffi, I’ll see you on Friday. Not literally, but I look forward to seeing your post!
