Recently, I've been seeing 17 Live app commercials in Japanese media. Here's one of them.
So I finally decided to check out the app and it's surprisingly not bad. The streaming app is mainly Asian-focused, but their system is definitely way better than other streaming app services like Twitter's Periscope. I even watched a random fairly popular Japanese celebrity named Anna Inthesea streaming a live show.
Also, the app has an interesting leveling up feature, virtual presents, community events, trivia games, poking and more. Here's a small demonstration I recorded.
Other than that, the app is nice and I might actually stream myself through it. In conclusion, an interesting streaming app.
Conclusion: An interesting streaming app.
Fountain Hero Web Novel Chapter 5 & 6 is released. Also, I have decided to make some changes.
Since most stories usually have the main character wielding a sword, Exo will be using a sling instead - just to have some uniqueness. In other words, he'll be a somewhat underdog Spell Slinger class (sling and spell caster) instead of a Spell Blade (sword and spell caster) class. Here's a picture of a sling. It was mainly used by shepherds during the ancient times.

Also, I'll continue doing edits and adding more details for the previous chapters over time. They're technically in rough draft state.

On this episode, Ichirou goes on a date with Zena. Later, the city gets under attacked.
I have been following this series from the start because I've read the novel (which is currently volumes 1 to 4) in preparation for the announced anime back then. So far, the adaption has been pretty accurate to the original novel story. But, they skipped some minor details I thought were important and especially on this episode.
Anyway, it was nice to see our male lead and Zena go on a date. Also, it was just plain adorable to see Pochi and Tama do their tasks. Now, I can't wait to see the next plot coming. Overall, cool date and some action.
Conclusion: Cool date and some action.
