Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft – No. 19 Laputa

Been a while since I last built a Ghibli Minituart papercraft. This time, I’ll be tackling a one star Laputa one model number 19 so it should be quicker. Then again, the first Totoro one was a one star but it still took many hours to put together so wasn’t expecting this to be any easier although it did look simpler.

Root Letter Review

I had never heard of Root Letter before so I had no idea what it was about. At first glance, you’d think it’s another dating sim where you just try to pick the best choices to win a girl’s heart.

Persona 5 Platinum Trophy Guide

Usually game series get mundane after so many titles but Atlus pretty much took Persona 5 to a new level and refined it so much it’s worth a second playthrough. So here is a guide on how to get the Platinum trophy while you’re at it.

The trophies are pretty much similar to Persona 4 Golden but might actually be easier thanks to new features like skill bonuses you get from Confidants, the new name for social links in Persona 5.

You’ll need a minimum of 2 playthroughs for the platinum trophy since some of the conditions can only be satisfied then.

Note:
This guide was written based on my own translations of the Japanese game and not the official English translations.
