Shingeki no Kyojin

Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack On The Titan).... Well, if you ask me my opinion about this anime.. This one is HILLARIOUS!!!!! Frankly speaking, I don't suggest you guys below 16+ to watch it, OK? There are lots of blood, flesh, nude and kill. (But again, this one is not Hentai anime, I don't watch such thing, so this one is safe, you can just watch nude monster I mean..).  

For my great expectation, this anime can be compare to Claymore and I could say it is better than Naruto. You guys may believe on my expectation, but truly this one is just awesome. When I watched the first episode, shockingly, I don't move, I watch until the last second of the show, it's really really mental striking. For you guys who love extreme, total action and fantasy anime, this one is truly recommended!!!

Episode: 25+OVA
Genre: Action, fantasy, a bit romance, dystopia
 Long time ago, in the year of 800s, there are another creature besides human, animal and plants and it was the titans, gigantic monstrous creature with variant height and weight and with abnormal intelligent. The size is around 5-10 meters and they are brainless, idiot faced. Even so, the most frightening is that they eat humans with unknown certain purpose. As to defend the life of human which is close to extinction, humans for over years build a tall border, a wall to separate the humans and titans which called as Maria (The wall for villagers, poor people, low standard living people), Rose (trader, standard people) and Sina (noblemen and the kingdom). Once, live a young boy and his adopted sister Eren Jaeger and Mikasa Ackerman inside the Maria wall. Both of this sibling has a best friend Armin Arlert, who are an orphan and leave with his only grandpa. One day Armin shows his friend a book which is left by his parents about the world outside, there are seas, dessert, fish, forest outside the wall, because of the titans, people only have the living inside the wall and everything is the same for a century. As that reason, the kingdom create Recon Corps, an organization which train those who wants to attack the titans and investigate the outside world.

On that they, where people are joyfully having their lives inside the wall, suddenly a sixty meter titan destroy the Maria wall, an a tragedy happens when Eren's mother was eaten by the Titan while he and Mikasa were saved by one of the Recon Corps member. The death of his mother makes him a mental shocked, a mental pressure where he intends to kill all the titans with his hands. The fallen of Maria wall makes people inside the Rose wall, where Eren, Mikasa and Armin live, makes people live in scare.  One day, a rebellion pops up inside the rose city, people are lacking of food because the amount of people who migrate increase from the Maria wall area. Without any choice, the king orders to send some of the villagers to get out from the Rose and investigate the Maria area. One of the volunteer is Armin's grandfather, and as the result without any protection, all the people die in instant for nothing. 
These three kids grow and join the military training to be the members of Recon Corps in order of their one purpose, to kill the titans. After so many years training,  on the day they are graduated, the next day an armored titans attack, with his revenge desire, Eren and friends attack the titans. But lots of their comrades are dying because of the numbers of titans. Eren was cornered and his leg was badly injured, while Armin was almost eaten by a titan, Eren then sacrifices himself to save Armin. Inside the titan's body, a miracle happens, Eren can control the Titan himself and find out that he has a new power to control and to suppress a titan. But this is not a happy news, the Recon Corps finds out Eren's new power and claim that he is also the enemy of humanity and set a war to him. Mikasa and Armin try to protect their dearly friend, Eren and in order to save Eren, they have to make sure and make use of Eren to show his true nature in order to save the humanity.  

Well, the story is well-packaged. My heart keeps pounding every time I watch this. Friendship, the bond of family, sacrifice, never give up, revenge, blood, humanity, monstrous, flesh, tears, everything is here. Ironic, happiness, love and hard work. There are lots of moral value here instead of just judging this anime because of the nude idiot titan. For me, this is a masterpiece anime, perhaps it has short episodes, but truly entertaining.
The setting is a little bit different, a western village and then kingdom. The picture is qualified, high class setting, detailed and we can feel the atmosphere of a tragedy.

Hataraku Maou-sama

2013 Spring anime is really really fascinating. One of my favorite is Hataraku Maou-sama (The Devil Is A Part Timer!). Well, it's unpredictable and humorous. Well, I could say you may compare it to other comedy but still there is action genre. So, here we go with some of the review.

Episode count: 13
Genre: Comedy, action, romance, fantasy 
Real form of Satan
Once, in another world called Ente Isla, there is demons and humans along the world. In the center of Ente Isla is the core of demons area while around side of it is human area. One day, the devil leader, Satan Jacob declares a war among humanity and send his fellow to overcome and rule the entire of Ente Isla. But on the other hand, born a half angel and human to become a knight, a hero of humanity to destroy all the devils. One day, the hero manages to corner Satan and friends in his castle, the hero even manages to cut Satan's horn, on the last second of his death, Satan manages to escape by summoning a teleport gate to another world which is modern life of Japan. Confusingly, satan uses his last power to trick people so he and his last fellow, Alciel manage to get identity card, understand Japanese language, get a small apartment (should I call it apartment? May be a small room which is rented for 2, something like that lols). 

Alciel, Satan, Emillia, Chiho
Having his life in Japan  makes him makes up his mind about ruling the world, and he starts to work as a part timer in MgRonald franchise as a cashier with a human Chiho Sasaki. Unconsciously, Satan does not know that Chiho likes him, Satan who turns to be Sadao Mao (fake identity) lost his desire to conquer the world but having his target to fulfill his life in Japan and conquer his work as part timer to be the owner of Mg.Ronald. On the other hand, the hero, Emillia Justia comes to the Japan modern life to by following Satan and Alciel's last portal to kill Satan. But after meeting the new Satan, the way he stops thinking about conquering the world, and how he is being loved by Chiho, a human, first of all Emillia was pissed of by Satan's manner, because he has killed Emillia's father and homeland, but as the time passed by, what Emillia sees from Satan, Satan even saves a lot of people and she decides to supervise Satan for her entire life in Japan. On the other hand, fishy things happen in Ente Isla, the way Emillia cooperate with the church to kill Satan, there is a secret behind of it, why the devil wants to conquer humanity from the first place and who is wrong from the first place. Another thing, as Emillia always supervise the dark lord Satan, unconsciously Emillia also starts to love Satan by witnessing his kind heart to humanity.

Well, this anime is so much fun, touchy and for me fantastic. The way it solves the problem and the characters are just so perfect. I love this anime, and the stupidity inside of newcomers in modern country of Japan. Great rating, great plot, I have nice watch in this holiday, so grateful~

Sekolahku Teladanku

            Sekolah dambaanku bukanlah sekolah yang luas, mewah ataupun berfasilitas kelas internasional. Sekolah dambaanku cukup sederhana dan merupakan sekolah yang telah tercermin dan digariskan oleh semboyan pahlawan nasional pendidikan kita, Ki Hajar Dewantara yaitu ing ngarso sung tulodo, ing madyo mangun karso, tut wuri handayani, yang berarti di depan memberi contoh, di tengah memberi semangat, di belakang memberi dorongan. Dengan demikian, sekolah dambaanku adalah sekolah yang secara garis besar mampu memberikan contoh yang baik kepada siswa-siswinya. Sekolah dambaanku tentunya akan terwujud dengan adanya dukungan guru yang kompeten, lingkungan dan fasilitas yang baik serta tugas-tugas yang konstruktif.
            Sekolah tentunya tidak akan terbentuk apabila tidak ada guru yang menjadi mesin utama kegiatan belajar dan mengajar. Dalam satu kutipan Alexander the Great pernah menyebutkan demikian, I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teachers for living well, yang berarti ia berhutang budi atas kehidupan yang diberikan oleh ayahnya namun ia lebih berhutang budi kepada para guru yang telah mengajarinya bagaimana cara hidup yang baik. Di lain sisi, mantan presiden Indonesia kita, B. J. Habibie mendefinisikan guru sebagai sosok pencipta nilai tambah pribadi bangsa. Dari kutipan-kutipan tersebut dapat disimpulkan bahwa kriteria guru yang baik adalah guru yang mampu mengajar siswa-siswi mengenai nilai-nilai kehidupan, menginspirasi para siswa, memberikan teladan dan berwawasan luas. Hal-hal tersebut dapat tercermin baik dari aktivitas-aktivitas kecil hingga kemampuan guru itu sendiri, misalnya dengan tidak sering absen dalam kegiatan belajar mengajar sebagai perwujudan dari sikap bertanggungjawab dan teladan patuh pada aturan, mau berbagi pengalaman dan ilmu pengetahuan serta mau diajak berdiskusi dan berpikir­ secara luas. Selain itu, para guru juga dituntut untuk mampu memberikan pengajaran diluar kotak, yang berarti tidak hanya terbatas pada teori-teori dasar dan buku, mampu berinisiatif lebih dalam kegiatan belajar mengajar sehingga tidak membosankan, misalnya mengaitkan pelajaran dengan cerita, nyanyian, pengandaian ataupun melalui media lainnya. Di samping itu, guru juga harus memiliki kemampuan mendeteksi potensi siswa-siswi sehingga siswa-siswi bisa diarahkan sesuai kemampuan masing-masing serta mampu membangun ikatan kekeluargaan antara guru dan siswa-siswi untuk memberikan semangat dan dorongan moral. Dengan demikian, hubungan guru dan murid tidak hanya sebatas pemberi dan penerima ilmu saja, namun ada ikatan batin akan kepercayaan terhadap guru sebagai sosok teladan utama dan penyokong semangat di lingkungan sekolah.
            Selain guru yang kompeten, sekolah yang baik tentunya harus memiliki lingkungan dan fasilitas yang baik. Lingkungan dan fasilitas yang baik tidak harus mahal, cukup sederhana, mencerminkan hidup yang sehat, asri dan tentunya tidak kehilangan fungsi aslinya yaitu untuk mendukung kegiatan belajar siswa-siswi. Misalnya saja dengan tersedianya kelas dan peralatan belajar mengajar seperti papan tulis, kapur, penghapus, meja dan kursi yang layak pakai, toilet yang bersih dengan air yang cukup, kantin yang menjual makanan bergizi, bersih dan bebas dari bahan berbahaya, tersedianya tempat sampah di setiap sudut gedung maupun ruangan kelas, tersedianya tanaman yang menghiasi sekitar lingkungan sekolah, tersedianya perpustakaan, laboratorium dan lapangan untuk kegiatan upacara dan olahraga pagi. Di samping sebagai pendukung potensi siswa-siswi dalam kegiatan belajar, yang terpenting adalah lingkungan dan fasilitas yang baik secara tidak langsung turut serta membangun tumbuh kembang siswa-siswi. Siswa-siswi dituntut untuk menjaga lingkungan di sekitarnya begitu juga dengan pemeliharaan diri akan peduli kesehatan. Dengan demikian, generasi-generasi yang dilahirkan sekolah tidak hanya berpotensi secara akademis saja, namun turut serta sebagai generasi yang sehat dan pendongkrak semangat akan kepedulian terhadap lingkungan sekitarnya.
            Jika sekolah sudah dilengkapi dengan guru yang kompeten, lingkungan serta fasilitas yang baik, tentunya belum lengkap jika sistem pendidikannya tidak diperhatikan. Salah satu bagian paling penting dari sistem pendidikan adalah bagaimana sekolah memberikan tugas kepada siswa-siswi. Tugas-tugas yang sering diberikan biasanya dalam bentuk pekerjaan rumah yang mana siswa-siswi harus mencari dan mencatat kembali jawaban dari sumber tertentu, tugas kliping, makalah, dsb. Walaupun tugas-tugas ini cukup membantu mendorong keinginan siswa-siswi untuk semakin banyak membaca dan memecahkan masalah, namun sesungguhnya tugas yang diberikan harus turut serta bersifat konstruktif, artinya tugas harus mampu membangun ilmu pengetahuan siswa-siwi begitu pula dengan pengalaman mengenai nilai-nilai kehidupan dalam bermasyarakat. Tugas-tugas yang diberikan bisa saja dikombinasikan dengan kegiatan-kegiatan khusus yang lebih komunitatif, yaitu adanya interaksi terhadap orang lain, benda lain ataupun alam. Misalnya melanggengkan pelajaran agama dengan mengunjungi panti asuhan, mengkombinasikan pelajaran ekonomi dengan menggelar padat karya dan belajar berbisnis kecil-kecilan, menuangkan pelajaran biologi dengan melaksanakan praktikum pembedahan reptil, dsb. Dengan demikian, tugas-tugas yang diberikan akan lebih menyenangkan, tidak hanya bersifat untuk mendapatkan nilai dan teoritis sebatas buku saja, namun turut serta membantu siswa-siswi memahami bagaimana keadaan realita sosial serta memberikan pemecahan solusi berupa penggambaran asli akan apa yang telah dipelajari.
            Harapanku untuk sekolah-sekolah di Indonesia, semoga sekolah-sekolah di Indonesia untuk masa kini begitu pula dengan masa depan dapat kembali lagi kepada identitas aslinya yaitu menjadi sekolah-sekolah yang memberikan kontribusi berupa teladan kepada siswa-siswi generasi masa depan Indonesia serta lebih mengembangkan sendi-sendi utama identitas asli sekolah Indonesia. Semoga pemerintah dapat turut serta memberi kontribusi lebih untuk melatih dan melahirkan guru-guru yang lebih kompeten, membangun pemerataan pendidikan, melahirkan generasi bangsa yang lebih cerdas, bermoral dan berpengalaman. Semoga sekolah dambaanku, sekolah yang diadaptasi dari semboyan peninggalan Ki Hajar Dewantara bisa terwujud dan dapat pula menginspirasi teman-teman untuk berperan dalam mendorong dan memberikan kontribusi kepada sekolah-sekolah di Indonesia menuju ke arah yang lebih baik dan berkualitas.

Herby Honey Niku Spaghetti

(Serves for 4 portion)

Herby meat:
  • 4 slices of meat (you may use beef, pork or chicken)
  • 2 tsp. of cooking oil
  • 2 tsp. of black pepper
  • Some salt
  • One lime (presses the lime and takes the lime liquid)
  • 1 tsp. sweet soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. Honey
  • Basil leaves/ lime grass leaves

  • One pack of spaghetti (made by durum flour is the best, if you can’t find it, another one is OK)
  • Cooking oil
  • Garlic
  • Tomato paste (I use canned one, you can use La Monte or Prego, if you want natural sauce, then you can use tomato juice)
  • 4 pinch of sugar
  • 2/3 pinch of salt
  • Some black pepper
  • Some water to boil the spaghetti (let’s say for a pot)

  • Chop garlic into small pieces, meanwhile boiled some water in a pot
  • If the water has boiled, put down your spaghetti and add some salt, stir well  and wait until it is soften
If you like a bit slightly oily spaghetti, you can add a tsp. of cooking oil into the water, but I will prefer not, for me it’s just too oily. Some people believe that your spaghetti won’t stick if you add cooking oil while boiling it, but I find out my spaghetti won’t attach with the sauce, it makes my spaghetti wouldn’t be in a good red color. So I would prefer not, if you understand how to cook it well, it won’t stick, just follow the step)
  • Cut your meat into thin and wide shape, make sure it is not too thick, so it will be well done cook or it will turn to be half raw
  • Boiled your meat in the same pot of spaghetti just for a minute, don’t take too much time or your meat will be stiff like a rubber. Just for a minute and put it in a small bowl
  • After that, cut a lime, marinate the lime water with the black pepper, salt, some soy sauce and honey into the meat
  • Put the meat for several minutes in the fridge until the liquid absorbs
  • Keep stirring your spaghetti and keep watching for the texture, if the color has turn from dark yellow into lighter white yellow, turn off the stove and let it still in the pot
(Well I can’t tell you have long you should boil it, since there are lots of type of pasta and they have different time to be boiled because of different flour, it will be better if you follow the package tips to have al dente spaghetti, al dente means it is not too soft and also not too firm, but at least you can bite it, so it’s in the middle of over cooked and under cooked, if it is too soft it will stick each other)
  • Turn on the stove; fry the garlic with the cooking oil in small fire. If it looks pretty golden crispy pour the water; add the tomato paste; sugar; salt
  • Stir it well and wait until it is bubbling. Good sauce always looks a bit thick; make sure the water you pour is enough for all spaghetti so do the tomato paste, if you prefer sour then add more paste, if you prefer balance sweet sour then follow the recipe. Well, you may taste it first while cooking; who knows you would prefer stronger taste.
The trick is here; never afraid of having too much sauce for your spaghetti, the more sauce, the more it will be moist, moist means tasty for me. Don’t cook too long; you want al dente texture isn’t it? When the sauce is bubbling, put your spaghetti
  • Put on the spaghetti, mixed it until all the color turn red, turn off the stove and put it aside
  • Take out your marinated meat; pan fried it on a little cooking oil until all the color turn brownie gravy.
  • Cut some basil leaves and sprinkle it on the cooked meat, shake a bit the frying pan and serves it on the top of your spaghetti. Garnish with some chopped basil herb again, serve while the spaghetti and the meat is still hot.
