Waiting for CDJapan

I was going to do a review on “Answer” by FLOW today, but I still haven’t gotten by package from Japan, yet. So in the mean time, please enjoy a clip from 涼宮ハルヒの激奏.

P.S. If anyone know where I could get a copy of the song to sate my apatite until the CD arrives, please let me know. 🙂 NVM, found it.

Not quite dead

It’s been six months since I last posted anything on this blog, and since then, I have discovered a bit about myself. For one thing, I found that my “love” for anything anime and related is not as great as I thought. Or I should say that I my real love is for reading; Manga, books (novels and light novels), magazine, etc. are what I pick up when I have free time, really. I think my addiction for anime is an off-shoot of my interest in reading. In another word, I love a good story.

Merry X’mas and Happy New Year

Just like to wish everyone a Merry X’mas (or happy holidays) and a Happy New Year. 🙂

New Year Resolution? Buy more DVDs and figures, of couse! XD

WordPress Upgrade (or downgrade?)


Sad Alvis

It seems that WordPress is doing something about their backends (pun intended), and the “Visual Editor” that most people use is turned off. So we are left to type entries in html code. I found this out since I’m writing my Jigoku Shoujo Ep. 4 entry right now, and those “easy to use” icons for adding pictures and stuff is no where to be seen. Fortunately, I still have some html skills, but it’s taking me a little longer than expected to finish the entry. I was originally going to post it tonight, but I probably won’t finish writing and editing it until tomorrow morning, HK time.

Update: Backlog Hell and NDS

Okay, I admit it. I’ve been slacking off in updating the site, and only for two reasons, both minor by most accounts. Worse, this blog is only 1 month old and I’m slacking off already:

1) Backlogs are bad for motivation. I’ve backlogged 3 Jigoku Shoujo, 2 Death Note, 2 Kanon, and 4 Black Lagoon episodes during the time when my computer when down, and frankly, blogging about all of them became rather daunting since I’m rather new at blogging and it takes me a long time to write an entry. However, I will start writing about Jigoku Shoujo very soon again, and I’ve made that my priority. Black Lagoon, Death Note, and Kanon entries will become impression only entries, and will probably remain so. Hopefully when the new season arrives I will be more accustomed to writing and start writing more.

2) I just bought a NDS lite and it’s been sucking up most of my time. I’m starting to name my NDS the Nintendo Draining System, as it has been draining my time and money. I think only crack addicts has it worse. I’m playing FF3 and Phoenix Wright, and I have the GBA remakes of the old FF series lined up as well. So *sigh* hopefully I’ll get my priorities right and start blogging again.

So I’ll most likely post Jigoku Shoujo eps 4 summary Friday, with 5 and 6 during the weekend. And thanks for putting up with me. 🙂

Status: Alive and damn all computer problems

Due to computer problems, I wasn’t able to get or watch anything over the weekend. *cry*

Fortunately, I got the darn thing working again, and will start posting again… soon. When I finish DLing (15 and counting) and watching the shows, that is…. Welcome to Backlog Hell, I’d say.

P.S. As a consolation price, I just got a call from my local GK store saying that the figure of the above picture just came in along with Guitar Bunny Suzumiya Haruhi. 🙂 They are both reproductions, but the samples both looks very good. Will probably take photos of them this weekend. 🙂

State of Arts: Comic/Manga Movies

Whenever a movie or TV series is released that is based on a Manga or comic in the recent years, people cannot help but ask, “Do we really need another manga/comic adaptation?” or “are we so out of material that we have to make another comic/manga adaptation?” Yet, even as we continue to raise these questions, the entertainment industry continues to churn out adaptations based on comics/manga (not to mention movies and TV series that are “remakes”, e.g. The Departed, Batman, Superman, Battlestar Galactica, etc.). So have we really ran out of original material for movies and TV?

P.S.

Please don't ask me where you could download the anime/movie/dorama. Check Tokyo Toshokan first, please. Thanks.
