Mini-Reviews: Kindle Paperwhite & Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

Within the last week and a half, I’ve been abducted by the thing known as work. Despite the abduction, I’ve become familiar with Hikaru the Kindle Paperwhite, and I beat Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward. Now I am here to present my thoughts on the two.

Kindle Paperwhite
I like it. I find it to be a tad bit slower than my Kindle Touch, but the fact that I can read in the dark makes up for it. The bottom part of the screen does emit the “glow/shadow”, but I was able to ignore it after a while. I’m just thrilled that I can read in the dark, and the lighted screen has served its purpose for me. Plus, I like the idea of having a device that I can carry 2910920 ebooks instead of carrying the said amount physically. Yes, I will always prefer real book, but ebooks are appealing in their own ways compared to real book.

Unfortunately, like my Kindle Touch, the readers are crap for manga reading. So while I love the Kindles for reading simple text-based ebooks, I won’t be using it to read graphic-based books like mangas. A pity, really, since I do like mangas. Nonetheless, I do like my new Kindle, and I am glad I upgraded for the lighted screen!

Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward
After falling madly in love with Hakuouki in December, a game full of samurais, wars, and pretty boys, VLR’s different genre threw me off for a loop. Yes, both games have murders and killings, but Hakuouki had a fairly straightforward plot. VLR ended up being a total mindfuck and all the twists and turns put me through one hell of a ride. Here’s another spoiler-free reaction post I wrote at NokoNoko. I really did enjoy the game, even if I did prefer 999 over it.


  1. I just use a regular book light with my kindle to read in the dark. Do you find that this is easier on the eyes? I just feel like the kindle really stood out from other devices not having a backlit screen and I’m a bit disappointed to see a backlit screen although I knew it would probably happen. I haven’t seen it in person though so I really can’t judge. I’m super glad you like it! :)
