We are less than 3 months away to 2018! How time flies eh?
I was searching for a 2018 planner online until I stumbled upon Detective Conan schedule book at HLJ. In Japan, a planner is more commonly known as a ‘schedule book’. I wasn’t the biggest Detective Conan fan but I want to get a fancy planner that is anime themed so I got this planner myself.
It’s not a very big planner, measuring at a B6 size (H 186 × W 1134 × D 5 mm) at a total of 80 pages. Yes, it is a very lightweight planner and I think it’ll be easier to carry around. The downside is the cover material. I’m not sure what’s the right word but it will leave oil stains if your hands isn’t sanitized or washed before touching it. The first few pages looks like this:
Can I just say how tiny those boxes for ‘yearly schedule’ pages were? I don’t think I could write anything inside the box, so it’s better for it to be reserved for symbols or birthdates instead. The boxes at the monthly pages at least gives me some space to be able to jolt 1 or 2 things down.
After December 2018 monthly page, then it’s the free writing memo pages. I like the different designs of the memo pages (blank, lined, etc) so it makes writing notes more interesting I guess. The ‘Address’ page is redundant for me, like all other planners I had before but who knows, I may be able to write something next year? The last page is ‘Personal Memo’ or I call it, personal biodata page.
Overall, it is an okay planner. I mean, if you are a big fan of the Detective Conan series, you may want to get this before 2017 ends. For casual fans like me, you can either choose to have it or skip it. As I mentioned earlier, I just want an anime-themed planner and this so happens to be the one available from HLJ.
Thanks for reading, and take care!
